Re: Please talk me OUT of getting a Dragonfly

Why would anyone want to do that? It's a great little blade. ;)

Re: Fairly comprehensive list of Spyderos in movies, tv shows, etc

It's been a LOONG time since I last posted on this forum, and for that I am ashamed.. It took a :spyder: sighting in The Blacklist to get back over here.. Hopefully to stay. :) Anyhow.. A rare Volpe sighting in S1 Ep4 about 21min in. http://i884.photobucket.com/albums/ac45/dark-star29/20160908_19194...

Re: Pass around of my Spyderco C160 Foundry!

I noticed something that has me curious.. Sorry if it's already been discussed, I must have missed it while drooling over the knife pron.. Anyhow. The 'Bug' etching looks different than any other Spydie I own, or have seen. It appears to have a raised outline, like it was heat-stamped, or some such?...

That looks awesome! It will lighten in time as well. SB seems to change everyday you use it It looks much darker than the pics, but I like it! Once I poured all those chemicals on it, it's become my work knife.. No more cheese. lol I think it looks awesome. I would coat it with vegetable oil so it ...

Just paste some of the link text they give you associated with the picture. If they give you one that starts with that will show up if you paste it into a message. If they give you a direct link one, you can put and [ /img] (without a space) around it and it will show up. I forgot to delete all the...

CLR On Caly 3.5 Super Blue

The severity of the results were unexpected.. But after some pondering, I've decided I like it. Gave it sort of a damascus look.. Why would I use CLR in the first place, you ask? Well, I cut some cheese, wiped the knife down with a dry towel, and let it set for a few hours. Upon my return, there was...

The key to finding it, is buying the replacement. As soon as the transaction occurs, the old one shows up immediately Ha! Funny story about that statement.. I was over at my Dads place 10 or so years ago, and he asked to see my knife--an SS Dragonfly.. He loved it, so I went and bought him one.. He...

Admittedly, I have very limited experience with Cuscadi scales, having only ordered 1 set.. for a PM2. However, he was nothing but up-front and professional with me, and the scales arrived quickly, and as promised. Maybe he just has something going-on that prevents such quick service? Not to mention...

Anyhow.
Sorry you lost your blade, man.
If you liked the Tasman that much, why not get another one?
And don't lose it. :p

I'm in. But I'll put different scales on it. Not a big fan of the Smurf-blue. Love the steel, though.
I would carry the one I have now more often if it had earth-toned scales.

Well, I ain't going to win any awards for my fit and finish work, but I will be going back and to clean up the edges. Adding that little notch made all the difference and this knife works a lot better for me now. Thanks again for the help and advice. http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7413/8722261976_98...

I've made a slight mod to mine.. And made a bit larger one for a forum member.. It's really simple: Just disassemble the knife, and use a Dremel to remove some stock in the liner and scale. Then sand and polish (with the dremel), and viola! Note: The scales are carbon fiber.. nasty stuff to inhale.....

I can't speak to one I've never carried, but the Zulu was underwhelming. Not the blade shape, but the handles lack of heft and a bit of length. I never felt comfortable using it for more than ultra-light tasks.. Just didn't feel comfortable in my hand. But that's more a personal preference.. Some kn...

Late to the party on this one, but I would like to add my backing for the Millie.
It's the perfect outdoor knife. (unless Spyderco makes an XL PPT, that is :p )
