hehehe, I would agree with you there, Calypsokid!

Anyone putting their spydie under such extreme treatment intentionally, doesn't deserve to have a spydie in their possession. I mean, that's the reason they have cheap low quality knives, right? :D

I don't know about the states, but where I am, it's illegal to carry any sort of self defence 'weapon', whether it was sharp or blunt. heck, we're not allowed to carry knives as an EDC. but I have been carrying my expandable baton for the past 5-6 years, and have only used it for self defence once. ...

heat treatment

If I was to use, say my Endura, to poke red hot coals and accidently left it in there till it got red hot.....would i have changed the structure of the metal? Have i just made it weaker?



(no, i didn't do this to my little baby. just out of curiosity)

grease on knives

Hi people, just wondering if anyone has tried using grease to lubricate their knives? after trying desperately to loosen the blade on my old endura for the past few weeks, (dipping in HOT water, and opening and closing for a few hours every night), and oiling it with machine oil...and getting no-whe...

Recently, I have been looking at 'white lightning' lube coz it's been mentioned a few times before in other forums.

should I go the militec instead? (this is the other one that has been talked about)

204 sharpening techniques

what sharpening technique works for you? I don't seem to be sharpening properly. i always end up with a rounded bevel edge instead of a flat one (by looking at the reflection of light). do you have any special techniques which you found yourself which helps you hold the knife at the correct angle? e...

I reckon, definitely the Civillian and it's little bro, Matriarch. Pull that out in front of anyone, and their eyes will pop out as soon as they see the shape of the blade!

If only they were available here in Australia, I would be a much happier man!

Hi Blades,

I'm not sure if freezing will shrink it that much, but it's definitely worth a try! otherwise, I can either continue 'working' the blade or dump it with the other knives, and start using another one as my EDC.

we'll see how it goes..

I store mine in closed position. It's safer, and protects the edge. BTW, I never noticed the tension on the lock.. seems to be in same position open or closed...only moves when opening or closing the blade. while we're on the subject, do you display your unused knives, or keep them locked away? -Imp...

Gglockman99, I'm sorry if i sound impatient to you, but after reading the several posts where it only took them 2.5 hours or 1.5 hours to loosen their blade, and I spent more than 10hours in total, so i would consider myself pretty patient.

I guess the reason would be, because my RESCUE is about that sharp, and i want all knives to be about the same level of sharpness. Also, just putting my mind at rest, knowing that my 204 IS able to get knives that sharp. It's also good to impress other people showing them how sharp they are, to get ...

how to get hair-poppin sharp?

is it possile to get a spyder-edge hair poppin sharp using the 204?



is it a matter of reprofiling the blade to 30degrees?

or do we have to somehow get an ultrafine stone to finish it off?



any help would be appreciated.

I realised cost cutting was one reason, but i think it would be good to have the option of a better blade for those who choose it. That's an idea, to be able to have custom spyderco knives - to be able to choose the type of blade steel, style, and handle, but of course, this will definitely make it ...
