Re: Model longest in production

Should be the stainless steel Police C07. True classic, especially the Spyderedge version.

Re: Ancient 440V Millie-Tell me what you can about it!

Hey I've got one of those (except with teeth). I love the Dyno jimping and the even lighter carry. A real classic. I've never taken mine apart to see the washers. 440V is no joke to sharpen. https://i.imgur.com/SGKe3GP.jpg The first Spyderco knife I ever bought was this exact same one (down to the ...

Re: Best Torx Screwdriver Recommendation?

Wiha. I like the ones with "Magicspring" features, helps to hold small screws in place when doing installations :

This 7 piece set has all the torx drivers you need for Spyderco knives, and is my favorite. Very portable too.

Re: Potentially counterfeit Atlantic

Looks like the Salts may be changing over to black lockbars & screws. Apart from the Dragonfly Salt, the pre-order for Pacific Salt 2 at BladeHQ also shows black hardware : https://www.bladehq.com/item--Spyderco-Pacific-Salt-2-Lockback--112409 So does the discontinued Pacific Salt too : https://www....

Thank you, Charlynn

I have a cherished C50GP Centofante knife, probably 20 years old, that was still perfectly fine except for a stripped body screw that left a gap between one of the G10 handles & the back spacer. Wasn't sure if Spyderco still carried parts for such a long discontinued model but sent an email to Charl...

Re: Force To Open/Close A Blade Changes

I live in an Equatorial climate. Inside a cool, internal air conditioned environment, my Para 3 lightweight blade drops shut perfectly all the way back into the handles. Outside in the heat & humidity, there is definitely more friction, the blade no longer drops shut all the way. So there definitely...

This is my preferred Wiha set, the Magicspring feature helps hold fiddly little screws in place for easy installation :

Looks legit from the pics. But do check for the small notches in the recessed steel liners, see if you can post some pics there.

Re: Would you prefer if Spyderco boxes were improved in any way?

The older gray boxes (with spider web pattern) used 10 or so years ago, before the change to the current red & black boxes, were sturdier. They used thicker card stock and tend to arrive in better condition. But some still had the problem with the black painted clips having paint worn off by abrasio...

Re: Spyderco Tenacious (Real or Counterfeit?)

Its a fake. The jimping is not correct, and the real Tenacious uses flat instead of dome-headed scale screws. Ive seen this fake at our local flea markets.
