Re: Forcing a patina on a Rex45 Chief

Complete manual. Thank You, Vivi. I was expecting to be a slow process. Once I did lemom juice soak on M4. It took almost 24 hours, to a light grey. I'll try to patina my K390 Endura.

Re: K390

After two months with K390 Endura I must say, I love the steel. Its definitely a lot easier to sharpen than S110V, it get silly sharp on strop, almost feel like some 1095. Has very, very, very good edge retention and toughness IMHO. Like the patina on it, but sometines it get even small red spots, w...

Re: Native Chief first and ongoing impressions thread

My K390 Endura did the same, when I was sweating. It was easy to remove with eraser.

Re: To decide between these 4 Spydercos..

K390 Endura.Clear winner. Great steel, ergos, light and slim to carry, round edges allaround, pleasure to use, very thin edge geometry. Imense cutting power with character. Military is a bit thick behind the edge, to my taste, liner lock tab is a hot spot in tight grip. With Basic S30V You don't get...

Re: What Spyderco is in your pocket today??

Native Chief Rex45 is instant classic IMHO. Same class as micarta Shamans or M4 / M390 Millitaries. If I don't have my K390 Endura, wich I love, use and carry all the time, I would try to grab one too.

Very nice. I think a Native Chief in micarta with round corners and some tool steel will be a must buy to me.

Re: Help with decision? Sage 1 max vs Para3 max vs Sage 5 LW

If you want some higher end steel, maybe You should consider something from the K390 line-up. Endela for example is the middle size, but there is a lot to choose from Ladybug to Endura. The steel is great if You dont mind patina and some care. Easy to keep sharp and hold the edge very long. Best val...

Re: Broken ukpk

Maybe they can tell the right version by date code on the box, or some models have date on the blade near pivot.

Re: Help me pick my new Spyderco knife.

Endura K390. Longer actual edge than Manix XL, light, easy to carry, four way clip and one of the best steels on the market.
P.S. If still want a biger knife wait for Police K390 LW😉

Re: Well that didn't take long...

Love the reaction from Sal. So true👍
Sharpening skill is must for every knife user. I think that You are lucky its K390 steel. Many other steel would be damaged much, much more.

Re: Would like suggestions on Spyderco's to look at next

What about Endura wharncliffe? Great to carry, light, long blade, that low tip is always ready to cut. Or some other version, if you are not a wharnie fan 🙄 Balsphemy
