Re: Scratches in G10

I’ve found that rit dye will remove superficial marks in g10. Now that's the first time I've ever heard that before. I've been trying to decide whether or not to dye the scales on my M390 Military model because the handle I have is starting to fade somewhat and I'm just wondering what a dye job wou...

Re: Liquid Cobra is making some knives..

Here is a quick video of my latest liner lock. CPM-20CV hollow ground blade with double black canvas micarta contoured scales. I’m waiting for my mill to be delivered so I didn’t make a custom clip for it. But they are coming. https://youtu.be/VexzVk5opMY I also made some fun little whatncliffe blad...

Lucky for the OP all those old designs are still being made and are readily available for purchase.

Re: The comings and goings of a SwayBack

Michael, what you’re saying is true, for you. But clearly it’s not true for many others.

I open this knife no differently than any other Spyderco I own.

Re: The comings and goings of a SwayBack

I’ve got large hands and have no problem opening it the same was as all my other Spyderco knives. I suspect you were pushing on the lockbar at the same time as you were trying to open it. Naturally I can’t be sure of that but it sure sounds like it to me. Tyler over at GP Knives was kind enough to o...

Re: Clips you don’t like do not constitute a fatal flaw

I hardly ever see someone share a picture of a Para 3 without the clip replaced with a 3rd party clip.

Also it should be mentioned that the wave feature is still protected by Emerson.

Re: Emerson knives??

Hi Raven, I’ve purchased about 7 Emerson’s over the years and I can tell you that the newly made ones are superior in action, detent strength and lockup. I still experience lock stick but it seems to break in and go away. The grinds are beautiful and the finished is pretty good. I say pretty good be...

Re: 2021 Spyderco Forum Calendar Contest!

Member: Liquid Cobra Model: Spyderco Swayback The Spyderco Swayback is my submission for this years calendar. I really love how it’s a mix of traditional and modern knife design and so I thought this old barn seemed like a good pairing. Thanks Spyderco! https://i.imgur.com/2wfPdY3_d.jpg?maxwidth=640...

Re: Liquid Cobra is making some knives..

Better and better! How's the lockup on this one? I know you had some lockstick issues on your first. Again, just very well-done man. :cool: Thanks everyone. Yes, the lock up is much better on this one. A small amount of lock stick but I think it’s going to break in. No blade play this time like on ...

Re: The DAMAUKPK Project: Damasteel UK Penknife UKPK

Sal, why not proclaim this officially a Forum Knife, and sell it through SFO webshop? After all, it's been set up here, guided by David. I wouldn't need any etching or anything on the knife (definitely not on the blade!). A certificate or so would do. What do you think? Probably because it would li...

Re: Exclusives?

I must applaud Heinnie Haynes not only for listening to the requests of their UK customers, but also for the courage to make such an investment. As an exclusive, they "own" the design as long as they keep making them. They will keep making them as long as you keep purchasing them. I would also like...

Re: Exclusives?

Interesting topic. I’d have to say I agree with your comments CXXX. As a Canadian trying to get my hands on the tanto PM2 I am having to pay a considerable penny to make it happen, well over the asking price. I don’t want to get into the why (border problems). If the same knife (tanto, wave) was sta...
