Re: Tanto PM2 Support Thread

I’m thinking on this one. If it had partial serrations, I’d be all in.

Re: Reveal 4, What's your favorite release?

The Para 3 Lightweight SPY27 is what interests me the most. I have been carrying the Para 3 lately but haven’t purchased a LW yet. The new steel is what I am most excited about. I think it will be fun evaluating it at the same time as the rest of the world. I am trying to determine if I should preor...

Re: Spyderco Para 3 Varieties, News & Modifications

Way long overdue. What were they thinking with only 27 variations. Good collection, and nice reference thread. I have just recently become a believer in the Para 3. When I get a new knife, I always try to use it some and keep it easily accessible so I can pick it up or leave it be. Once I started s...

Re: CPM SPY27 steel

SPY27 is a USA made variation of VG-10, another useful and successful blade steel made by Takefu that was created by Spyderco working with Crucilble. sal I would love to have SPY27 in a Para 3, or even a PM2.....or even in a Military. I have thought many times about how much I would like VG-10 in t...

Re: After-Market Micarta Scales for Para 3?

Good thread. I have been thinking about getting a set or two of micarta scales for the Para 3. This may be my 2020 knife thing. I also saw some aluminum Para 3 scales on ebay. That would be interesting.

Re: Reveal 4 Live!

Interesting. I will probably pick up a serrated Pacific Salt 2 and one of the Para 3 LWs. I can’t wait for someone to get their hands on SPY27 and give it a good workout. I kind of wish that the Dragonfly would have gotten the K390 treatment.

Re: What would it take to get a Forum Knife?

I just read this thread from the beginning and with no real thoughts on what I would want going in. I came out the end thinking that the UKPK would be a good choice. To tell you the truth, I wasn’t sure what it was until I searched for it. Makes sense to me. A UKPK with burgundy micarta would be swe...

Re: K390 & Corrosion

I do not force patinas and I keep mine rust free. When I get new knives in non stainless I clean them, apply tuff glide and let dry for a day. I wipe everything off then wax the blade with a paste wax. I use Renaissance wax in particular. This pretty much keeps the blade oxygen free so rust will no...

"Why Didn't You Buy A Manix 2 Back Lock?"

Too heavy. If I carry a knife over 4 oz., it will be a Military.

Re: Are you done with 2019, Spydie wise? What do you wish for in 2020?

I'm done for 2019. I really don't have anything that has me drooling for 2020. A K390 Military would be too hard for me to resist. I am probably going to get a 1 x 30 variable speed belt sander to play around with. I broke the tip on a Super Blue Caly 3.5 a couple of years ago and I'll see if I can ...

Re: Hope for the Caly 3.5?

I am all for a sprint run with different steels, and I wouldn’t care what color the G10 was but physically, leave the handle alone. It is unique and perfect, and the one underrated trait that seldom gets mentioned is maintance on a Caly 3.5. One pivot screw and this knife is tore down to clean. No ...

I am all full up in the knife department. Nothing really interests me. I would be in for this one though. 3.5 flavor for me.

Re: Para 3 K390 Ranger green from BBS!

I think this knife is knife of the year for me. It has been a good battle between this one and the K390 PM2. The Para 3 was getting a little more carry time than the PM2 until I put a deep carry clip on the PM2. I will get a deep carry clip for the Para 3 and see how it goes.

Re: How was your 2019?

I had been out of the loop for a few years, knifewise. I checked into this place to see if anything interesting was going on and I saw that there was a run of DLC CPM M4 going around. So I grabbed a natural G10 Paramilitary and Para 3, and a Military CF/S90V. I thought I was done. Nothing else inter...

Almost.
There were several different ways to handle this one. I have no problem with their way.

No one should be forced to own a gun.
