Re: BBS DLC Paramilitary 2 Exclusive?

If they had coated the liners black, I'd have had no choice but to buy. But I'm saved by my OCD.

Re: Spyderco Province Photos

HI Jim, nice clean design and shades of the classic Bowie . Good choice on the steel grade and a good balance between ductility and hardness and geometry for edge performance. It was worth waiting for. Congratulations Jim and Spyderco, Phil It strips the Bowie format down to the bare essentials. Pu...

Re: Bento Box M390 PM2 Re-Release on July 19th

I think it's so weird that there's this one outlier with such a different approach to reselling sprint runs. EDIT: But the existence and success of BBS's strategy suggests that the other retailers are doing something wrong. The others are selling them off fast, at prices that let the secondary marke...

Wow. That blade shape looks terrific on that knife. It's got a postmodern Bowie thing going on.

Re: Let's discuss Nitrogen steels

I wouldn’t really consider H1 as a nitrogen steel. But the 0.1% N steels in general are not that different than “non-nitrogen” steels. S90V and S110V have at least as much nitrogen as BD1N and 14C28N . I have articles on effects of heat treatment and composition on corrosion resistance. What questi...

Re: All Black CPM-M4 Military anyone?

If ever there was a knife that would make me want to go full Mall Ninja, that'd be it.

EDIT: the liners need to be black, though.

Re: Spyderco 2019 Lists: Delivered & Upcoming

Ok, this is a sprint just asking to be rite-dyed. If they did this in a Para 3 I'd almost rite-dye it, as long as I could get 2. Yeah, the scales are too light And since the whole knife isn't blacked out, it's kind of strange using DLC on a steel without much of a corrosion problem. But whatever: t...

Re: BD1N vs S30V vs VG10 interesting result from cut test

Of course, both the BD1N and the VG10 could probably take slimmer geometries that would let them cut longer. The S30V, too, but not as much slimmer. I've definitely seen tests of BD1N at 30° and 63 HRC where a whole lot of rope got cut. I think S30V would probably have trouble with those sorts of ge...

Re: Para 3 lightweight

This knife is crying out for a factory "regrind." With the lightweight scales and hardly any liners, it makes even LESS sense to have a knife this length with a 4mm thick blade. What prying are you going to be doing with a knife that light in the frame?

Re: CTS-BD1N Where does it fit in?

Confession time, I broke my word. Put the Para3LW on the Ultra fine stones tonight. Have to report this steel gets sharper than VG-10 with such little effort very easily , very, very surprised!! Great steel, great choice Sal and Eric, very excellent choice. Blasphemy! I still think VG-10 is the ult...
