Re: Ikuchi - fantastic knife!

My only gripe was it made my index fingers sore from constant flipping until they hardened up. lol But try as I might I couldn't put it down. Fidget factor 100. Then I came up with what I call the Peacemaker deployment. Basically you hold it in one hand and "fan" the wheel with the heel of your palm...

Re: Bar B Q: Who's Got The Best?? And Don't Forget The Sauce

Steve Hall AKA Shotgun Red posted his BBQ sauce recipe on youtube a couple years ago. I've tried it and quit buying store bought sauce. You can make it a little sweeter....a little hotter. It's good stuff.

Check out the video recipe here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JTTCYGcqna0

Re: Spyderco Centofante and other Sub-3MM Blades: Afraid of breakage or no?

In perspective Opinel #8 blade is .066" or (1.67mm) thick and tens of thousands have been made and used hard. I don't recall ever hearing any complaints from users about blade failure. Then again they are not idiot proof. :eek:

Re: Crazy deals @ Sierra and other places

I paid $60.00 including shipping for a new set of 701 Profile stones last year from a seller in the US. Like you said HARD TO FIND. I looked for years and would've jumped on the current listing.

Re: What is the hardest (but still possible) spyderco to spydieflick?

Chicago CF. This little blade is so smooth opening but flickable? Even with a powerful wrist flick....I can't manage it.
Edit: The OCD in me wouldn't let it go. I oiled it up and kept at it for better part of an hour. I've got about a 90% success rate with the little bugger now. :D

Re: Should a Endura Zome Green have a shade of green?

Check the box number and make sure you didnt get the Desert Camo C10ZFPDCMO by accident. You should have C10ZFPGR.

Re: Trouble sharpening Spyderco...

Keep the plunge line parallel to the stone and be careful to keep the stone flat or you'll start to create a recurve edge. Maybe this video will help. I would bet you are right handed and when you flip the knife and stroke the rod with your left hand you are inadvertently tilting the stone when you ...

Re: Crazy deals @ Sierra and other places

Keep the title in memory of past great deals. :)
I recall getting a Spyderco Hossom Forager for $67.00 back in 2010. Micarta handle, Boltaron sheath, 7 1/2 inch N690CO blade. Insane price. I miss STP deals.

Re: Crazy deals @ Sierra and other places

Sierra Trading Post used to offer fantastic prices on Spyderco knifes. Sometimes up to an additional 45% off on knives that were already marked down to close out prices. In 2012 STP were bought by TJX Companies (Owners of TJ MAX) and they changed their business model and did away with the closeouts ...

Re: Which Spyder For Mr. Elon Musk?
