Re: Spydercos self-loosening pivots

Yup. Every Spyderco backlock knife I ever had (North of 100) had this issue. Blue Loctite didn’t help, neither.
I always assumed that this is why the company uses red Loctite - to thread those pivots shut.

Re: Spydiechef Rusted After First Use

Strange. I’ve had 3 Chefs (2 V.2 CQI and the most recent black screwed V3), and none demonstrated the slightest sign of rust. It does look like the OP has the latest V.3 with black screws and ceramic detent, so contamination would be my guess. Using some polishing compound and removing the rusty spo...

Re: My STRIDERCO just came in and I'm in love !

Glad to hear I’m not the only person who thinks that the Spyderco Brouwer is basically the Spyderco version of a PT. Only it’s better, IMO.

With a low riding MXG clip it’s perfection.

Re: Early days thoughts on the Brouwer

I also really love the Brouwer. It is perhaps Spyderco’s most underrated pocket knife.

Re: MXG Titanium Replacement For Standard 3-Screw Clip (Non Deep Pocket)

Thank goodness for these aftermarket clip companies. If not for them, the Smock and Brouwer would have been unusable and uncarriable for me.

Re: Lanyard tube rattle in Taichung models

I've removed the lanyard tube from both my Spydiechef and Advocate because of rattle. A $200+ knife that rattles like a maraca seems cheap. Shouldn't have to jerryrig a fix with superglue on a knife that costs that much. But, removing the tube doesn't detract from aesthetics really, so no big deal....

Re: Lanyard tube rattle in Taichung models

I can't figure out how having a lanyard hole became the default rather than a specific and somewhat rare feature. Like an Emerson wave, it's useful, but only for a very small number of specialists, so why do 90% of knives have lanyard holes and <10% have a wave? That’s a good point. How many holes ...

Re: Lanyard tube rattle in Taichung models

I have some that do it too. It never really bothered me, but some people here have suggested: remove the lanyard tube entirely or put locktite on the tube or put figernail polish on the tube. All of those require pulling off the show-side scale so don't go for it unless you are comfortable taking y...

Lanyard tube rattle in Taichung models

Anybody else experience this on their Taichung Spydercos?

Both my SpydieChefs, Bouwer and Smock have developed this annoying lanyard tube rattle.

Maybe one day Spyderco will stop ruining their knives with ugly, obtrusive lanyard holes.

Re: Para 3 Salt Lc200n

While I love the Salt line and LC200N, I do not think I’d get a Para3 LW Salt. BD1N is already very resistant to corrosion, and it comes at a very attractive price-point. A Chaparral LW in LC200N is a different story, however! I’d love one of those, especially for its thin blade-stock. Would be inte...

Re: Underrated utility

I have many kitchen knives, including really pricey premium models from Japanese makers, etc.
however, Spyderco’s MBS blades kitchen knives are my most used and loved in the kitchen.
They take a lickin’ and keep on tickin’..!
Def underrated, with tremendous value.

Re: Squared/Rectangular Handle Scales: Do you like them or not?

I much prefer a more versatile, simple handle design. One of my favorite features of the SpydieChef, for example. Also why I love the Sebenza 21, traditional folders and other knives with similar handle designs. All these contours, finger choild, etc. only restrict the versatility of the knife, IMO.

0.013 is thin, but not exceedingly thin. I personally wish most factory knives came with a small measurement behind the edge.
