Camo Micarta by Sharp Dressed Knives. So much pocket time :)

Nice! Just got some green canvas micarta scales for my Para 3, but waiting on some extra hardware too. Looking forward to the install!

Re: ZDP for EDC questions

My first two Spydies were the ZDP Stretch and the ZDP Dragonfly 2. Excellent EDC, just takes some patience sharpening. No problems with corrosion or chipping, holds a very fine edge for a very long time. Great stuff!

I'd still love to see a Cru-carta Native based on the Linered G10 model. A folding tank that thing would be.
Two materials I'd like to try on a great knife model I'd like to try! I'd be in.

Re: Straight Razor from Spyderco

The prototype is on display at the Spyderco booth at SHOT Show in Las Vegas this week. It's getting a lot of handling and questions asked. I'm hearing positive feedback. Sal invited Howard Clark, Ed Schempp, Phil Wilson and myself to discuss Bainite heat treatment processes. That was a good confere...

It was decided that the K390 Endura family series will NOT be a Sprint, but regular "In-the-line" models.

But more importantly, can I get a Straight Spine Stretch? :-)

Re: So I want to try a Native.

Thank you all for your input! The REX 45 natives are coming. Linerless G10 or LW. Which ever drops first try to get to it. If you miss out try the next one. The Maxamet native is great. I think this is the answer for me. The only thing is I'm not too stoked on orange, so if it's a LW I may try to dy...

So I want to try a Native.

It'll be my first Native, so I'm looking for advice on what to try. In addition to the poll above, I'll ask for a recommendation on a Native that's available right now (or in the near future) that's a little more interesting than the stock. Ie, not just black. I like earth tones and carbides. :-)

Re: So I stripped a pivot screw.

I watched the Nick Shabazz teardown video and it looks like the Para 3 pivot barrel itself is keyed on one side (in a D shape), but not the screws. Pretty sure the issue is the thread locker still. I was able to buy a replacement set of hardware on eBay, so I'll wait until that comes in and try eith...

Re: Tanto PM2 Support Thread

I'm glad BHQ is doing it! Will be a cool test case. The more Paras the better, but I'll be skipping this one. More power to you if you love Tantos, but they just aren't as useful for me.

Re: So I stripped a pivot screw.

Get rid of your Husky tools and purchase a high quality tool like Wiha (germany) or equivalent. CG Yea, that's not the problem in this case I believe. I have some very nice Wera jeweller's drivers, and have not had a problem dissembling Seki Spydercos. I think it's literally just about the thread l...

Re: So I stripped a pivot screw.

Well, I feel stupid. Disclaimer, I understand that disassembling my pocket knife voids the warranty. I was under the impression this hasn’t been the case for a couple/few years now? I'm not sure actually. I think Spyderco told me this when I stripped a screw on a Stretch maybe 6-8 years ago and end...

Re: Please Help Me Buy a Flashlight!

Send me a PM Friday and remind me to take a picture or two of my M2R next to my Wowtac A1. I also usually EDC an aluminum body i3T, because I have too much other work stuff in my khakis to carry even the M2R. But the M2R is my night stand and dog walking light. Fall of 2018 for the Christmas shoppi...
