Re: Manix 2 Lightweight clip screw help!

The fastener is flat on one side, and the hole has a flat spot to match. The fastener should not rotate in the hole. If I needed to repair such a problem, I'd cut a slot with a Dremel, and then use a flat blade screwdriver to remove it. If you do a pretty job, you could reuse the fastener. IMG_7395...

Manix 2 Lightweight clip screw help!

I just got a Casey Lynch titanium clip for my Manix 2 lightweight.

The clip screw just spins.

One side is torx the other side is smooth.

I’m guessing it’s loctited.

If that’s the case - how can I safely heat the FRN without melting it?

Will boiling water melt FRN?

Thanks in advance.

Black Friday purchases coming in

I received my Q Ball today. I must say I’m very impressed. The fit and finish are spot on. The centering is perfect. The grinds are very even. I couldn’t ask for more. This is a great knife. I almost said great little knife but one of the surprises for me was it’s bigger than I imagined. The other p...

Re: How was your 2019?

I have got to stop buying knives in 2020.

I’ve been saying that for a few years now.

But this time I mean it!

I just got a Q Ball and a Delica in a bundle from BladeHQ.

Re: Para 3 lightweight

Well, the bloom is off my Para 3. I touched it up on a Sharpmaker. The 40* angle was perfect on the apex of the edge. I don’t feel I used it hard. I just open boxes. Cut a few zip ties. But it felt a little dull. The BD1N steel sharpened right up. With just the brown stones it would shave hair again...

How do you get the veteran discount?

When I logged in to my account I’d already signed up.

And I got my Para 3 from GPKnives

Re: Sage 5 Lightweight

The Sage 5 Lightweight looks like a large Chaparral Lightweight with a compression lock. I really like the Chaparral Lightweight and I just got the Para3 Lightweight so I’ll probably pass on this one and wait for the Caly 3.5 Lightweight.

Re: Bent tip on my Para 3 LW

I bought a Native 5 carbon fiber factory second with the very tippy tip broken off. A few minutes on my Wicked Edge and you’d never know.

That can be fixed. If nothing else you can send it back to Spyderco for sharpening.

Re: My experience with the Caly3

I have a brand new in box original G-10 Caly 3 in my safe. I also have a user and I love that knife. I prefer the 3 over the 3.5 so I may just wait to see if a Lightweight Caly 3 comes out.

Re: Don't get cut with a ffg blade

The worst cut I’ve had was from a VG-10 Endura. I was learning to sharpen and evidently figured it out. It was so sharp I didn’t even realize I’d cut myself until it bled.

Yep. I love the orange too! I have an orange dragonfly now.

In the latest Reveal, this is the knife I’m most interested in.

I wonder if I could swap the scales.....

Re: Para 3 lightweight

I wear xl or size 11 gloves. I would say I have average size hands. Since you have a Delica, the Para 3 handle is the same length. Whatever grip you can get on a Delica will be the same on s Para 3 without using the choil. Thanks for your reply! But to be honest: I can't believe thar the Para 3 off...

Re: K390 Caly?

I vote for a Caly 3 as opposed to a 3.5.

I prefer smaller knives.

And I love the Lightweight versions.

I have 2 Native 5s, the Chaparral and the Para3 in Lightweight.

Re: Para 3 lightweight

That´s interesting! May I ask: What is your hand- / glove size? I got rid of my Native, exactly because I did not like that I HAD to use the choil to get a four finger grip, while the handle itself in length COULD have offered enough space for that (a four finger grip) if it would have been shaped ...
