Re: BBS DLC Paramilitary 2 Exclusive?

I have ordered several knives from BBS over the past few years.

Will pass on the ugly black coating version.

Re: Exclusive Re-runs: has this ever happened?

Bento Box Shop has at least three with PM2 M390 dark blue G-10
Knife Works with PM2 CTS 204P with green G-10
DLT has done a few.
Probably several others.

Re: Delicafly

I really like shorter blades in medium handle,,,, most likely not enough demand for Spyderco production,,,, dealer exclusive ?

Re: Cru-wear Delica

I just ordered another Delica CRU-Wear from BHQ for back-up.
Excellent knife with first class quality control.
This will be my EDC for quite some time.

How do we find how many remaining in stock at dealers ?

Re: Compendium of tips for sharpening serrated knives

I really like the loupe made by Belomo it is triplet and 10x with great quality for the price. With strong light assist, it will show the stubborn burr or any slight defects in the apex formation. My early efforts with ZDP-189 were frustrating until I obtained this loupe and closely examined the edg...

Re: Endela-thread

The Endela is 3mm stock,,,,, PM 2 is 3.58mm (0.141").
Small difference but noticible when deep slicing.
This is reason many custom makers offer blade regrinding to thin out blade proper and behind the edge reduction.

Re: Endela-thread

My big disappointment with the Endela is the 3mm blade thickness.
IMHO it would have been much better with 2.5mm blade stock,, a 3 inch sharpened length slicer would be excellent.
The thicker blade stock is not necessary for a pocket knife of this size.

Re: M390 Delica thoughts and input

The Delica 4 is one of my favorite FRN Spyderco knives. This M390 version is excellent quality with great steel,,,, I have ordered a back-up for future carry.

Re: AUS-6 Stainless vs AUS-8 and others?

The Tojiro DP series with laminated VG-10 is the best value today.
I have a set that is about 20 years old now.
Great heat treatment and hold a edge very nicely for low cost kitchen knives.

Re: Cru-wear Delica

Although I carry an Endura every day, to cut my breakfast at local coffee shop, my favorite FRN Spyderco is the Delica.
In the winter the knife is in my front shirt pocket in easy reach for precision cutting.

Just purchased a back-up Delica CRU-WEAR from DLT.

Re: Cru-wear Delica

I just checked my Delica HAP40 with M390 and VG-10 all are within 0.001" stock thickness.
The 2mm must be a typo in specs published.
The HAP40 blade grind does appear slightly thinner and that could be why several comments have been made.

Re: Sharpening with leather.

Their are many sources for diamond paste and spray. Be careful of "low price wins" the main item to observe: what is the weight or amount of diamond in the package? Higher concentrations will require much less application and last longer than the lowest priced product. I like the knife sharpening su...
