Awesome work. I'd snag a pair for an Endura or Para2 in a heartbeat. And the thought of a sprint run, , man oh man that would be slick. Thanks for sharing.

I agree with the placement of the stop pin. I suspect I'm just too used to Spydercos and their ease of deployment. I still like my CRK blades, but do wish they had a Spyder-hole.

I have both and voted for the Southard. It has a more robust feel in hand, and, personally, I love the blade shape. Like has been asserted earlier, , the Domino seems more suited to thin slicing whereas the Southard seems like it can stand up to more. As for the steel, I like both, but 204 has becom...

Bushcraft. I'm not a huge fan of it, but if you're stranded and you can only have one (Spyderco), a full tang and O-1 steel are the way to go.

I kind of like the idea, but doubt it would ever happen. I'd say people should take a look at Zero Tolerance's bayonet before they just turn up their noses at the idea. It's a slick looking knife that I think very effectively bridged the gap between a 'traditional' bayonet and a truly functional fie...

+1 on the EdgePro, the fundamental design and numerous aftermarket stones available make it a truly remarkable system that will take most anyone's edges to a whole other level. However, for the most bang for the buck, a Sharpmaker (with diamond rods) just can't be beat. All that said, I think the Sh...

You could cant the edge toward the stone over that section like you mentioned, but consistency might be a bit difficult to achieve. Sounds like the blade was left a little thicker behind the edge in that spot, if only a little bit. If you have the diamond rods you could level this without much diffi...

I got one (Large Insingo, plain handle) because the Sebenza is sort of a benchmark in folding knife quality. When I finally got it I was very much impressed with the reputed quality that preceded it. However, being accustomed to higher end Spydercos I must say it's not like the Sebenza is head and s...

Nano-Oil for all pivots, and Corrosion-X for flats on non-stainless steels (O-1, 1095, 52100, etc).

Good insights Cliff. But this brings up a thought. Why does there seem to be, in the custom knife-making world, a sense of elitism inherent to those who forge their blades rather than use stock removal? I have done both, and can appreciate equally the results of both a forged blade and one made via ...

+1. It would be hard to beat the Domino as far as new 2013 production knives go, and given all the hype associated with the forum knife in putting S110v steel into the Native5 format, I'd say they are both frontrunners.

I have both, and like others have said, , you kind of can't go wrong either way but it's still an apples vs oranges kind of issue since they are so different. Personally, I like the Southard better, and believe it to be the finest knife Spyderco has ever produced. 204 steel is freaken awesome in a b...

Ironically, in all probability, the person who found your knife has zero idea what it is and could not tell it apart from a $10.00 knife from Pakistan. Sorry for your loss. The fear of losing a knife like that is the primary reason my Chris Reeve and Hinderer knives don't get that much pocket time.

If you only have a Sharpmaker at your disposal I (personally) would not dull the edge and then try to re-profile. In the absence of pictures I'd say the best bet is to keep working the flats of the diamond rods until the "dent" (more than likely a 'chip') is gone and then go into a more routine shar...
