Re: Would you be interested in a smaller version of the Respect (FB44GP)?

No dis-Respect, but after five years of carry, the Bradly Bowie is a much easier EDC.

Re: Verifying Worker authenticity (pic heavy)

When was the sharpened cut swedge changed to the longer curved transition wedge as in this Sprint Run Worker? (https://www.spyderco.com/catalog/details.php?product=893) As I recall both Worker models in the Evolution Set had the newer curved wedge. This is one way to tell the difference between an o...

Re: Benshot Lil Native Rocks glass

Cath & I are enjoying sake we bought from North American Sake Brewery when we visited Charlottesville, Va last fall. The food was eclectic and fantastic too. We met Andrew the head brewer and got an impromptu tour. He has a real passion for making sake. http://www.pourmeone.com/sake/ http://www.pour...

Re: Grail Achieved, Slight Issue.

Making an elliptical stop pin takes a lot more skill than a corrected symmetrical round one. If you open the knife and hold the blade so that there is a 50% overlap at the intersection of the tang and titanium lockbar, you could use a modified feeler gauge to determine the the additional diameter of...

Re: Grail Achieved, Slight Issue.

I have fixed a number of liner and a few compression locks (Spyderco, Benchmade, ZT, etc.) with this issue by loosening the stop pin retention screws and turning 90°(up to 180°). Many times the stop pin becomes distorted and/or worn due to excessive slamming to opening or just long tern wear and tea...

Re: Tip down Chinook

Buy a Chinook 4 and take it to a reputable gunsmith or machinist. It should be an each fix to make it tip-down. Tip-down is my preferred orientation―of course I have been carrying a Spyderco everyday since 1984. :D

Re: "Most Durable" available Spyderco Knife?

It would be easier to create a short of those that wouldn't rate as "most durable". Spyderco's standards are so high on everything they make and have made that the short list would be very short especially when one considers application.
