Re: Dragonfly & Manbug K390

Logged into BladeHQ this morning and saw that my K390 Dragonfly finally shipped! Only took 4 months... :-)

Can't wait to put that blade & lockbar into some foliage green G-10!

Re: What did you use your Spyderco for last?

Brought the Military to work today, and thank goodness I did. The longer blade really came in handy! Finishing up some improvements at the gym as we get ready to re-open. Our county's numbers are improving, fingers crossed we can reopen at the start of next month. Today was flooring day, this was 2"...

Re: What’s up with the military?

What you have, the 204p version, is really, really, hard to beat imo. Its a fantastic steel. Plenty of Chromium and sharpens so well - holds an edge very well. Its just hard to beat for an allround knife and steel imo. It's my first experience with anything like M390. Hope to put it to more use onc...

Re: What’s up with the military?

I was in the same boat as you recently. I love the PM2, Para 3, and Stretch. You'd think a Military would be right up my ally, but I help back, mostly because of the price point. For $200 or so, I could get two $100 knives. Or a $150 knife plus a set of micarta scales. Plus, it doesn't even have a c...

Re: Jeweler's Loupes & Magnifying devices?

I think they're for coins and jewelry. Available on Amazon, I included a link above. I like the one that Rusty Iron linked as it's cheaper smaller, but looks like it does the same thing. I'm currently using a 10x - 30x loupe, and while it does work, I find a bit of eye strain. Maybe I should try som...

Re: Jeweler's Loupes & Magnifying devices?

I posted this over in the Community Sharpening Journal, but figured I'd share here as well! Saw this lovely idea in one of the Spyderco Facebook groups today. Seems much more eye-friendly than a loupe, though it costs just over $100 . Anyone used something like this before? Anyone used something lik...

Re: Community Sharpening Journal

Yes. I use a USB microscope that plugs into my computer, and the image shows up on my display. The one I use costs $39.95, but it's not as nice as the one in your picture. I find it so handy that it's always plugged in and sitting on my desk. Mostly, it's an educational novelty more than it is a us...

Re: Knifeworks Exclusive CTS-204P Delica 4

Man that is a killer combo! This might be my first Delica. I would love it if they'd do a Straight-Spine Stretch in this combo.

Re: S35vn on the Tenacious...what does it mean?

I like the tenacious, although I've never purchased one. Maybe this'll be the first?

Would love to see a Bow River with s35vn as well.

Re: Warm vs Cool weather carry

Yea, agreed. My Para 3 LW is my favorite summer carry.

I recently picked up a Military in 204p, and I'm looking forward to carrying that once the weather cools down and I'm back to wearing jeans everyday.

Re: Odd milestone - who took all the g10?

Man, I would love to see some coutures of your micarta & wood collection! Especially with such a diverse array of models. Micarta sure is nice. I have one Para 3 with Micarta scales, and it's very comfortable. Still, I don't think the difference is so great that I'll upgrade everything in my collect...

Re: Anyone have and use a Mora Eldris?

I have one and used it quite a bit... Still: I would not get a replacement if I lost the Eldris and even would perhaps sell it, if this would not be quite a hassle and I could not ask for a reasonable price anyway since it is quite used. I have one (mine's green Warstein) and use it, but I agree wh...

Re: Best "work knives"?

Lightweight knives really are where it's at for work, though. I will "flip my ****" when a PM2LW is announced. The Straight Spine Stretch is pretty close to being a PM2 Backlock LW. Have you tried that? Yup, absolutely love it. The stretch is another favorite of mine, but I'd still like to see a PM...

Re: Deep carry clips

Personally, the biggest plus to the deep-carry clip is to remove the knife from the opening of the pocket. I don't care whether or not my knife is visible, but I do care if it gets in the way of my hand as I'm reaching past it for my wallet. I also think that deep-pocket clips make the knife carry b...

Re: Best "work knives"?

The Native and the Manix 2 are probably my favorite work knives. I still wish the Manix handle was just a tad different, but that knife sure has grown on me. Both are nice because they carry so small for their size, and the blades are very practical. It helps that I have both in super-steel models. ...
