Re: Lil' Kapara!

Another thought - I agree with the comments that the long/slender handle makes the comp lock a bit more difficult to actuate. I do think the long slender handle is part of the joy of the knife. One way to make the lock more accessible - convert to button compression lock, a la Smock. The Smock also ...

Re: Para 3 Micarta Scales

I have had four sets of micarta scales from three different makers, and none had the problem you describe. Considering it only appears with your micarta scales on, and disappears with them swapped out, it makes sense that they are somehow causing the lock stick. I just don't know how. As an added po...

Re: Why did you join?

I lurked for many years. Tried a delica and a PM2, but disliked both and stopped lurking :o . A few years later, I decided to try one more spyderco - caly3. Then, the ergonomics clicked. And the steel/materials clicked. And I had to find out more. I still lurk more than I post. I stay because I have...

Re: LC200N or H1 Dragonfly 2 with DARK COLOR handle!

Sorry for the bad lighting - but hopefully it helps.
Top is zdp, with the yellow salt scales rit dyed blue.
Bottom knife is the salt, with the green scales from the zdp (and black hardware from salt).

Re: LC200N or H1 Dragonfly 2 with DARK COLOR handle!

Many options:
- Rit dye as mentioned. I can post pics if you want to see
- swap handles
- knivesplus sells dragonfly salts with pre-dyed scales (only see hawkbills on site now, but pretty sure they can do anything)
- g10 or other aftermarket scales (ie Cuscadi, bladescales.com)

Re: The negative blade angle wharncliffe that I wish existed

Negative blade angle, but no spydie hole, no comp lock, and no S110V... This is actually the box cutter I use, for all the reasons behind this design. I use bi-metal blades just to make it look kinda blurple :cool: I agree with the utility, I like the execution, and I would definitely buy one. Very...

Re: Poll: How do you carry your Spyderco Dragonfly?

Around the house, I drop it into my front pocket. I think the frn texture keeps it from falling out? I also like to use the shorter wire clip on other knives, so I have extra incentive to buy more dragonflies and carry them clipless :D And - with jeans, the fifth pocket works great. You will not hav...

Re: Polishing Lil’ Native G10 scales?

Very nice! I have tried this, but did not use the flat pan/full sheet of sand paper. As a result, I think my sanding was not consistent across the slab scale. When I would go up to a higher grit - some areas would polish well and others would not. Kinda splotchy. I would re-sand and work my way back...

Re: SFO virtual tour - please!

Thank you for taking us along for the tour. I especially enjoyed the commentary on big knives :D

If I ever make it there, I might get bounced half-way through by asking to handle every single knife/variant :o

Re: If you can only have one Delica...

I only have one - hap40 wharnie.
My next - the k390 wharnie. I may cave and get the regular k390 before then...

Just think - one quick and easy way to narrow the choice down considerably is to go with the wharncliffe version

Re: Cruwear micarta Bushcraft/Proficient

The Proficient is one of two fixed blade I will never part with - the other being a Phil Wilson custom. The handle is that good. I also love micarta, and would have purchased the crucarta version regardless of the cost. That said - it is the handle than is the key to the design. If it can be reprodu...
