Re: Swayback

What I ended up doing was a pinch grip with the blade and my left thumb in the hole and a sharp and short downward motion. The momentum snapped the handle into place. I'm sure there's a term for that type of opening that I'm unaware of. Oh yes, I see. I can't remember what it's called either but I'...

opening left handed was very difficult
How do you even do it? I've only seen pictures of the knife and haven't held it, but it seems completely impossible to me. Which is a shame, because I find the knife absolutely gorgeous...

Re: Your New Knife Ritual

I open the knife.
See how it looks and feels for a brief moment.
Then I close the knife.
I remove the clip.
I open the knife again and start cutting something. Anything, at this point :)

Re: Six-Thousand Nine-Hundred Forty Days

How could anyone ever forget? On that day I truly understood why denial is often considered to be the first stage of grief: I watched the same footage over and over again (as many of us probably did) but my brain just wouldn't accept it. What was happening was both real and impossible at the same ti...

Re: What are you buying from Reveal 6?

Definitely the Atlantic Salt (PE for sure, maybe SE as well).

The Wharncliffe Manbug is very tempting but I might wait and see if more Salt LC200N are on the way: a LC200N Ladybug/Manbug would be even better. Or, as long as I'm dreaming, a Salt Jester :)

Re: Trivia Question: What Spyderco Has A Clip As Long As The Blade?

Or the Equilibrium. The clip might even be longer than the blade on this one (certainly longer than the cutting edge anyway).

Re: What Is Your Favorite Go-To Spyderco?

It's been the S110V Native 5 for quite some time now... but I have a feeling the Watu might change that.

The Delica, because it perfectly embodies the spirit of Spyderco: simple, versatile, efficient yet very distinctive.

And the Dodo... because who else could have designed that knife? :)

Re: Swayback Lookout Thread

A beautiful knife. I like the size and I don't care about the clip because I would remove it anyway. Not cheap, but it seems to be worth it.

Not exactly a lefty-friendly knife, though... :(

Only using two knives from your entire collection and keeping all the others NIB? (Asking for a friend). ;)
I'm definitely guilty of this. Well... I mean, my friend is :rolleyes:

The mighty Persian:
such a beautiful design.
We need a sprint run!

Anything but black

Re: Parata Finally

I really like the "out of the box" design and I'm intrigued by the Stop Lock, but from a practical standpoint I'm not sure the blade shape would work for me. The jury is still out on that one.

Re: Cannot loosen pivot screw

Putting the knife on a rubber mat so that it can't spin and/or slide also helps.
