Re: Spyderwrench

I think these command a fairly high price. $300-ish?

Re: Regrinding the Nirvana?

Carry a $500 knife? Like to use it? It’s your knife, but the best case is it doesn’t get stained, scratched, lost, etc. Or — God forbid — taken by the TSA. I get that some people really enjoy the craftsmanship in knives at this price point. I get it. But unless the price just isn’t something you thi...

Re: Help me find a discontinued Spyderco...

They pop up on ebay now and then. I would also watch BF for sale section like a hawk. They're out there. I've got one. They're good knives. I think the blade shape may make more sense with PE -- it works great in SE, but so does a regular Delica. I didn't know BBS still had the PE ones. Not a bad pr...

Re: Crazy Good Deals Part 2!!

I’m on an online chat right now with Dicks to get the discount applied. It’s taking a long time. Would not recommend doing this on your phone. Update: Ok, this took forever. Which I think was a good thing. While the price is amazing ($120 + tax) and by all accounts this knife is amazing, I just don'...

eBay that top one. You’ll get some cash for that.
How much do you think it is worth?
Hard to judge condition from that photo but at least $100.

I don't have a ton of knives. I think under 15 folders currently.

Awesome idea, and I love the scales on that first Manix!
That was a fun project, I have a thread about that somewhere. I cut the scales on my CNC mill.

Drawer organizer

Wanted to be able to store my EDC rotation in a closet drawer as something other than a pile of knives. Tossed this together from a 2x4 chopped into 5” lengths and glued together with an offset. Then sliced off part of the stack give a flat bottom. https://i.imgur.com/jmnZCsjl.jpg https://i.imgur.co...

Re: flytanium ball cage for manix

If you have the clear cage that originally shipped on the Manix 2 then it will eventually break. Spyderco can replace them with the more durable black versions. I’m not aware of any reports of broken black cages. I’ve “made” (3D printed) cages in both brass and steel/bronze. The (highly polished) br...

Re: Anything that can replace Chaparral?

There are’t many blades as large as the Chap that are that thin. I kind of laughed at the Mantra 2 suggestion - that blade is 50% wider than the Chap. I haven’t used one but the Centofante 3 is similarly thin but with a longer blade. Might be worth checking out. But you know you just need to buy ano...

Pretty much every Spyderco is good for prying after you pry something once and snap the tip off :)

Re: Shaman clip brittle?

There isn’t a lot of steel there around those screw holes. If you clamp the mounting section in a vise and bend clip section I suspect it would have bent fine.

Re: I think Spyderco should do more titanium framelocks

Spyderco filed a patent for the compression lock on 23 February, 2000. That means their exclusive rights to use this style of lock will expire in four months. They might be trying to make one last push with this lock before they face outside competition. Are other companies just waiting for the pat...

Yeah. Compression lock models all over the place now. I am not opposed to it but it’s about last on my list of lock preferences.

Re: Made myself a Bow River sheath

Ok, I loosened it up a bit with the tape trick.

One of these days I need to get set up to do rivets for this kind of thing.
