Re: TeroTuf!

As I mentioned above, I've got a left-handed pair of checkered desert tan Manix ones on order and have a couple of questions. Are all the scales in these pictures tan with varying amounts of mineral oil on them? https://firesideco.com/product/spyderco-para-3-textile-scales-desert-tan/ They seem thic...

Re: The Ladybug is a full size knife

RGT clip https://i.ibb.co/bXPwgFL/20200706-093948.jpg That is a pretty sweet setup. I like the clip. Would this fit as equally well on a Manbug? Not sure. Don't have a manbug currently. The clip screws are from a dragonfly. Since it's a D'fly screw, I'm sure it would fit because that's what I use o...

Re: Re-finishing Sharpmaker Rods

Welcome back, Vivi :)
I'm gonna order a new set of mediums right now. I've been using the same two sets of them for 7 years now, usually waiting too long between cleanings. I haven't used the fines nearly as much, so I think I'll try BFK on them before replacing.

Re: Pacific Salt praise

I think the blade shape on the Pacific Salt is my favourite of all the Spyderco offerings. I love the grind, and the way the H1 is italicised, it reminds me of something automotive almost, I love it it’s perfect! I agree. I think it's cool the way the H1 is etched into the steel on both the satin a...

Re: BladeHQ M4 Manix XLs

Mine just showed up. This is the first Manix 2 XL that I have owned but the lock seems awfully difficult/stiff to unlock and the knife clicks while opening. Is this normal? I guess this probably was a return to BladeHQ... Mine has a barely audible click when I open it, scarcely noticeable, but the ...

Re: The Ladybug is a full size knife

Deep carry https://i.imgur.com/hWC5Aw1.jpg https://i.imgur.com/ZyJiD5x.jpg Nice! Is that clip from a dragonfly? And the same screw works through the lanyard hole? Thanks! Yes & Yes. The longitudinal lines on the scales are spaced just right for the wires under the screw. I used the thin edge of a n...

Re: Spyderco pairings

Today I'm carrying my S90V Manix 2 XL and black Pac Salt. I'm doing some yard work and both are good for small limb whacking. Sorry, no time for pics. Your shot makes me want to get out my Calys and clean them up.

Re: Pacific Salt praise

@ Higher, I think something similar to this might work: (The pivot in the Pac Salt just has one removable screw and the other end is capped off, but, frequently, barrel screws come with removable screws in both ends for attaching scales on fixed blade knives, etc.) https://usaknifemaker.com/pivot-b...

Re: Pacific Salt praise

I continue if you will. It's about Pacific Salt first generation. With handle from Endura 3. Initially, this knife was assembled on pins. About 10 years ago, instead of pins, screws were installed. as below in the photo https://files.catbox.moe/v0k65r.jpg I got my knife on pins in very poor conditi...

Re: BladeHQ M4 Manix XLs

BHQ is one of the few entities I let notify me with texts (Spyderco is another :) ) so I got instant notification, but I've already got the satin XL and both M4 jade M2's, not to mention the S30V XL DLC, so I'm gonna reluctantly leave the DLC XL for someone else again.

My gold twill scales from Dagestan supposedly "Arrived at the Post office Махачкала" on 22 April... and are supposedly "in transit," but USPS tracking says "Origin Post is Preparing Shipment"... if that makes you guys feel any better :eek: :rolleyes:

Re: Pacific Salt praise

If you have access to a drill press, you might be able to clamp the knife in place and very carefully drill out the pins with little damage to the scales. Then you could see if the pivot is usable, and if yes, then you could search for screws.

Re: Smokey Mountain knife Works.

Their catalogs are good to test your edges with. It's free! I've been working on my freehand technique and experimenting with 1200 grit diamond vs spyderco medium finishes to see what feels or works better. It's the perfect paper to see if there are any snags, burrs, blunt sections, and if the blad...
