Re: Endela K390 in Blue

My K390 Endela from KC was stuck at Richmond for 8 days but finally go here on the 14th. I have waited a long time for this one to ship and really love it -- It's the Goldilocks size for me too! I'm fighting the urge to buy a backup. Thanks, Sal & Co. Now if we could only get a K390 Straight Spine S...

Re: What do you think of metal handles?

Normally I try to be very logical and scientific, but when it comes to knives, I don't have any overall rules that are deal breakers. It depends on the overall "aura" or (worse yet) "soul" of the individual knife. It's sort of like choosing a girlfriend or boyfriend. If you met your soulmate, you wo...

Re: 2020 Seconds Sale - BREAKING NEWS

This sounds exciting to me, especially if we get to suggest possible "if available" models. It would be a 2600 mile round trip for me, not a good way for an older guy to spend a pandemic. About the ebay problem, since ebay supposedly guarantees that you can get a refund if you didn't get what you pa...

Re: Predictions for Straight Spine Stretch

I was hoping for the SSS to eventually be included in the K390 sprint run. Has there been any mention of that? (Right now I've got the K390 Endela on pre-order and it could use some company.)

Re: Seconds Sale 2020

Well, as long as we're free associating, they could just put out say 3 or 4 boxes of knives, a wide assortment of types, every day for two weeks or until they sell as many as they need to, and let people send in their names and preferred dates to come. People who had flexible schedules could let Spy...

Re: TeroTuf!

Yes. You can buy it in single scale size, or in (roughly 8.5 x 11) sheets. (example of source for single scale size: https://usaknifemaker.com/terotuf-od-green-1-4-knife-handle-material.html) I'mr really digging the blue demin TeroTuf I have. I might try to pair it with a light colored wood. I real...

Re: TeroTuf!

I spent the past week making scales for various knives (because apparently that's what I do on vacation). I have two sheets of Terotuf, so I'll probably do Terotuf for the Spy27 Mule when it comes out, assuming I can get my hands on one (or more). I hope you'll post pics when you get some made. Can...

TEROTUF MANIX 2 XL SCALES IN THE WORKS !!

Followup: I like the crosshatch ones fine. They are pretty grippy, but it turns out that it was more the sandpaper-like feel of G-10 and peel-ply CF that I was getting a little tired of, not the grippiness itself. The crosshatch TeroTuf gets a little smoother with use, and of course, you could give ...

I realize that is probably in poor taste, but I am getting frustrated, and I need to laugh.

Assuming you're in Cal., it sure looks terrible out there -- the rest of the country is watching and hoping it'll be over quickly.

Move the sale up to before it gets cold and have it outside that's the only way I see it being very safe
And it wouldn't hurt to bring a few pairs of those blue disposable 5 mil nitrile gloves from Harbor Freight to make it safer for everybody to handle the knives, and of course a face mask.

Re: Seconds Sale 2020

Not meaning to be a spoilsport, but I think the main idea of the seconds sale is to move umpteen jillion knives quickly and easily with as little expenditure of overhead as possible, thus allowing the prices to be as low as possible. Just thinking that the shipping and handling would be a pretty big...

If the pivot feels OK and not too wobbly, it looks as though you will be ready to go when you find the screws and grind down the ends of the threaded pivot and lock pin. :)

Re: TeroTuf!

Thanks very much for all the responses, everybody! It's really too much info to quote :) I remeasured my crosshatched G-10 Manix scales and they vary a little from one color to the next, up to 1.2 mm thicker than the stock G-10. So, from the info you all provided, I think the TeroTuf will be fine. I...

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...
