Re: Efficiency of edge types

Welcome to the forum!

I tend to carry one of each. Plain edge and serrations both excel at different tasks, and I have various tasks come up in a normal day.

Re: Idea: Lanyard Tube Removal Tool

I've often wondered if it's possible to do a lanyard tube delete on a Para 3. I never use the lanyard tube for anything, and I'd love to be able to move the clip up there.

Re: Where is my Bow River ?

In stock on eBay for $32.50 shipped from one seller (looks like he has more than $10 available - I bought mine from him and received it very quickly). Thanks for the heads up. I bought one last week, but post office lost it:( I hope this one will be mine:) Ditto. I've been traveling and haven't bee...

Re: a little (REC) help for down under

What if several people in your country hired one forwarding service? Then you could split the costs and all buy the knives. I would bet that a dealer would understand and allow you to buy more than "one per household" (shipping address) in that case. I have a friend who lives in Australia and uses a...

Re: Riddle me this!

The two tribes one was really obvous/intuitive to me. I totally didn't get the funeral one.

The pucks I worked out after a long bit of head scratching and moving manipulatives around (I used rocks).

Re: What I want (and a pony)

Spoiler: Santa Clause isn't real! ;) But seriously, the Collector's Club is the subscription service, it's just, super expensive, since you have to commit to taking all the knives that come up in a year (though I believe there are different levels of commitment). That's why there are always CC kniv...

Re: St. Nicks Knives Exclusive hint - Lil Native?

These are up to $265 (actual sale) on eBay. It's crazy. St Nicks should definitely do us all a favor and get more units on their next 4v exclusive run.

A Ti Police 4 sprint would be a really cool place to use LC200N.

Re: How About a Para 3 in CTS-20CP and Gray G-10?

I'd love to see that.

I think Knifeworks should definitely run their green/204p combo in the Para 3 as well. That would be an instant sell out.

Re: Spydiechef + RGT Clip?

I have one on my M390 PM2. I've been very happy with it. Durable, stylish, easy to slide in and out of the pocket.

I wish it was low riding, but that's pretty much my only complaint.

Re: Carrying Jumpmaster 2 for Self Defense?

Every time a knife SD thread pops up I wonder if people have really looked at a Civilian hand gun. :D Though if you are going to carry a knife for that role, I think a 4.5"-6" fixed blade is hard to beat. He lives in Illinois. I bet its pretty hard to get a CCW permit there. The first line of defen...

Re: St. Nicks Knives Exclusive hint - Lil Native?

This one is running about $250 (so sales price +$115) on real sales on eBay. There are some listed much higher, but the actual sales look to be around $250.

I REALLY hope the police 4 sticks around.
Me too. If the P4 gets discontinued, I'll probably go buy several on close out--enough to keep me stocked with P4s in K390 for the rest of my life.

Re: St. Nicks Knives Exclusive hint - Lil Native?

I had to work, so I missed this one. Bummer. I really wanted to try the Lil Native, and 4v is one of my top steel choices.

Hopefully they'll do another run at some point. :(

Re: Spyderco Province Photos

For me, it's $260 from US dealers (who don't show it in stock yet) with free shipping. $275 from Lamnia with free shipping.

Pancake, are you getting hit with VAT that I'm not having to pay, or something?

Re: Para 3 Maxamet LW!!! (no, not another sprint or exclusive)

Does anyone know if the G-10 versions of the Para 3 will CQI and move the lanyard hole? The relative positions of the clip and lanyard on the LW are really night-and-day better than the G-10 version.
