Re: No sharpening November

This sounds like an interesting idea but I can't even make it one week. I use my knife every day and after a few days if it does not glide through whatever I'm cutting it at least receives some stropping or a light touch-up on my Sharpmaker. I'm not worried about it getting dull as I can always take...

Re: V-TOKU2 Delica has been released

These seem to be a pretty large run! I ended up with two so the first one is going to go through weekend cardboard reduction duty to test out the steel before it goes on a set of custom ghost green G10 scales.

Re: The Delica Always Creeping In

My latest is also a vtoku Delica. I also have two S30Vs, a standard HAP40, a new St Nick's HAP40 with red G10, and a standard VG-10. The vtoku and one of the S30Vs are the only two that are on stock FRM scales with all the rest on customs.

Re: Delica HAP40/SUS410 TiCN with red G10 Exclusive

Mine showed up today also which was a day earlier than expected. F&F is great and yet another exceptional Delica variant. Finally a Delica where I don't have the desire to swap out the scales :)

Re: V-TOKU2 Delica has been released

I have a pre-order from SMKW but no update that they have them in stock and shipping. I also was able to grab one on another site this morning. That means I'll have one or two depending on SMKW's ability to ship the knife. I'm hoping they do since I already paid but you never know with them.

Re: Delica HAP40/SUS410 TiCN with red G10 Exclusive

Great looking knife! I hope mine shows up soon. It's rather crazy that someone is selling one for $260 BIN when there are still so many in stock at St. Nicks.

Re: Taking apart knives - part 2

When I buy a knife I first inspect if there are any issues. If so then it goes back to the retail seller in the original packaging. If I decide that I want to keep the knife then it is up to me to determine if I want to take apart and also if I want to modify. For example I have several Delicas in d...

Re: M4 Para 3 Jade G10

My MXG deep pocket clip arrived this week and It really does make this knife perfect! It's booted my Delica and CRK small Insingo out of my pocket.

Re: M4 Para 3 Jade G10

This is my first Para 3 and I love it so far! Out of the box sharpness was great! I did a few light strokes on my Sharpmaker ultra fine stones and it is crazy sharp. I too ordered an aftermarket clip since the stock one is rather average. Overall I'm really diggin' this knife and have added the M4 D...

Re: Nirvana Titanium

I'm a CRK user and abuser as my main EDC. I really do love the design of the Nirvana and have been reading and waiting for a clear sign that it's A-OK to spend $431 on a knife. The last thing I want to do is to have to immediately send it back to Spyderco for repair. Looks like this knife was really...

My first was an only PE Delica with the skinny molded clip. Great knife that I ended up giving away.

I've been using the same Delica for the last three years and have felt that it's pretty "broken in". Two months ago I squirted some White Lightning bike chain lube on the pivot. Wow! Two months later, multiple washings, and the knife is still butter smooth!

I picked up a CF Delica this week. Clip seems to be working just fine. The blad grind is nice and even also. My only grip is the surface of the CF is rough, and slightly raised, around the screws and lanyard. The CF is also starting to flake around the lanyard. Not the hightest quality Spyerco I own...

I've gone though four Sebenzas (Lg/sm regular and lg/sm Classics). Ended up selling all four since I found that I used my Delica 99% of the time. It's a good feeling to have no fear about using/abusing a knife and knowing it is easy to replace. The catch is the Delica that's in my pocket right now s...
