Re: G-Clip hardware/screws rustproof?

It is very corrosion resistant but not quite on par with the H1 steel on your ARK. You shouldn’t see any problems though, even carrying IWB everyday. Probably not needed, but a quick freshwater rinse every now and then would be plenty to prevent any possible corrosion.

Re: I need some clarification before using the Sharpmaker for the first time...

Hard to say without being there so I can only give you a “best guess” based on my own experiences. It probably means you are at the apex on one side but probably still not yet on the other. Remember that when you are reprofiling, the closer you get to reaching the apex, the slower the progress will ...

Re: Kirinite

I’ve never read that. I’ve consistently read how durable it is and how it still has traction when damp, both from knife makers and users. Where did you read that? MooNglow can crack, but it is not Kirinite glow. I looked into it because I had heard it had some traction when wet. I considered using ...

Re: Spyderco Smock:Technical Showcase, Dud Knife

Hi Lance, It's not really a button lock. Different animal. We hope to make a button lock in the Sage in the future, but it's different. The Smock is a Compression lock with a button release. The button release was part of the Compression lock patent along with other methods of unlocking it. We gene...

Re: I need some clarification before using the Sharpmaker for the first time...

To be clear, I meant to say that if properly apexed it should be shaving sharp straight off the diamond/cbn rods. If it’s not then you likely aren’t quite there yet. The sharpie can give you a false impression sometimes when you’re close. Meaning it can look like there’s no sharpie left when you rea...

Re: I need some clarification before using the Sharpmaker for the first time...

Hi Many, if you have properly reprofiled and reached the apex on both sides then your edge should easily slice paper and shave arm hair (assuming you have made some lighter alternating passes to remove any burr. If you don’t have that level of sharpness then you are almost certainly not profiled all...

Re: Spyderco Rebrand Concept

Welcome to the forum! :) This is honestly great work, if I would know nothing about Spyderco and stumble over your adds and designs, I´d absolutely gravitate to the knives. It is kind of hard for me to explain in English (not my mother tongue obviously) what it is that I exactly find really attract...

Re: Spyderco Rebrand Concept

“Strong in hand, light in pocket” and “one purchase, lifetimes of use” are my favorites. I get the idea of “lifetimes” but it feels a little cumbersome. I kind of prefer a simpler “a lifetime of use”. Sorry, I know I know, everybody’s a critic. :rolleyes: :D

Re: Serration Disappointment

There are lots of reasons for the serrations being ground on the “presentation” side. Not least of which is that that keeps the knife (when being used by a right hander) from drifting into the body of the user or the hand holding the material. I encounter this regularly while using my serrated knive...

Re: I need some clarification before using the Sharpmaker for the first time...

Hi manyreasons, congrats on your Sharpmaker, it is a great tool! The first thing you need to do is decide if you want to use a microbevel or not. Opinions vary but I almost always use a microbevel because it makes it ridiculously quick and easy to resharpen a knife...especially with the sharpmaker....

Re: Back in the Spyder Web

What’s up MS? Good to see you! That para 3 is a great choice. Bigger than the slippies without being a “Big” knife. Personally, I much prefer the LW version but I like frn over G10 in most designs. Enjoy it! Simple pleasures are the best kind.
