I got my father and I some Spyderco Dragonfly 2's in orange.
We are both still trying to learn to easily and reliably open them (since they are so small), but once they are open it really is a "little big knife".

Thanks Sal & company, for the awesome knives! :)

Topic: Another Paramilitary 2 Question Normal lock position?
Replies: 4
Views: 1164

The position of the lockbar is vastly less important than whether or not the lock is solid and reliable. I mean, if the knife is functioning perfectly, I would not search for something to worry about. I would not worry about flicking causing noticeable damage or accelerated wear on liner/frame/compr...

Along with the pivot I noticed that the lockbar screw tension had an effect on how tight the action was. I left it slightly looser than snug and Loctited it.

Man, you guys do a great job of selling the Techno. I really like the design. Simple, but different.

I look on this as an engineering question. When you fly, the wings on an airplane can flex (flap up & down) to absorb energy, turbulence, etc. A knife works the same way. The handle material can flex, the blade can flex and the lock can flex. It all works together as a system to absorb energy from ...

I have tried Mobil 1 75w synthetic gear oil, RemOil, white lithium grease, and Finish Line Extreme Fluoro grease (DuPont Krytox). I totally break-down the knife and thoroughly clean it with dish soap and alcohol between tests. The Extreme Fluoro had the best static friction, by far. All of the lubri...

Just so I totally understand, does my new/as yet delivered, Manix 2 have the same bushing system as my para 2 ? Thanks.

Recently I quit worrying about minute blade-play.
If the knife is dependable and the play doesn't affect function, then I can live with it.

Someday I may even be able to tolerate off-center blades... haha. :rolleyes:

So Spyderco hand selected some runners up? Like I said what's the point of making a calendar just to give them all away for free? I noticed the 4 people saying they got free ones but also noticed the rest of us who outnumber them who didn't. If it were a clerical error I would think the majority wo...

I really don't think they were handing out free calendars just for submissions...think about that for a second. Everyone who even remotely wanted a calendar could just submit any old random knife pic and get it for free. What would be the point of them trying to sell a calendar if they just gave it...

I would give it more time and effort. I know when I like a knife, I will do whatever I can to make the knife function properly. You will only need to deal with Customer Service for a short time, but you will have the knife for many years. Your last post is a sad one, but I understand it. Keep us upd...

Can anyone give an example of a task that only a plain/fine/unserrated edge does well? Would it be game meat butchering? Are there tasks where a serrated/Spyderedge or combo edge would be a liability/downside? Either is better than neither. ;) I like combo-edge because the serrations work easier an...

I've stabbed a lot of people with SE blades and never had a snagging problem. I'm joking of course , but "How many people have you stabbed?" is my retort to that oft-repeated claim. I suspect it doesn't matter too much. Somebody ought to mock up some kind of test like gun people do with ballistic g...

I feel the same about combo-edge knives.
I can't change what the market wants though.

SpyderEdge knives seem to be doing well enough though.
Seems like the logical choice for the Salt series.

Next time, instead of accusing people you respect of doing something improper, why don't you ask politely?

I completely disassemble, clean, and lubricate all of my knives (except my Microtech LCC D/A) at least once, and more likely twice, when I first get them. After the those initial cleanings, if it's a lockback/slipjoint, I will occasionally clean the lock-tang area, otherwise my folders are left alone.

Great post, kbrouwer! :cool:

I got 1 question though, your FRN scratches easily?
My experience is the complete opposite.
I've only had a couple models though, Delica and Stretch.
