Re: Have you had a folding knife open on accident?

Never. Perhaps because, in my 66 years of carrying a knife, I've only rarely carried anything other than slipjoints, lockbacks, and midlocks, three types of folding knives with a very strong bias to closing. That is likely the reason. Just don’t fall down a mountain :D :D :D Seriously, that is a go...

Re: Has Anyone Noticed? Skyrocketing Food Prices?

Now that kind of surprises me. Because back in the late 80s/early 90s when I used to visit and stay summers in Jamestown NY ( West part of the state)>> I did notice then that meat prices there were somewhat higher than they were in my home town area of KC Missouri. Never been to the Big Apple which...

Re: Has Anyone Noticed? Skyrocketing Food Prices?

Can't say I have, JD. Did notice when I moved from upstate NY to SC eight years ago that, with the exception of certain cuts of pork, meat prices down here were noticeably higher than up there even when an particular cut, like London broil, was on sale. Found that a bit odd, as I assume stores here ...

Re: Pocket clip (wood-) screws just in wood?

If there are any hobby shops in your area that caters to RC aircraft or boat modelers, consider using machine screws and blind nuts like these:

Re: Rusty Waterway - Your Thoughts

No thanks, I have no desire for more non-stainless knives. Which is not to say Spyderco should not do it if they think sales would support it. Although, given that the Waterway is a Salt series knife, offering it in a non-stainless steel might lead to confusion. Perhaps the similarly sized and shape...

Re: Zdp-189 myths and truths

I've carried and used a ZDP-189 Stretch on and off since the CF version first came out. In my opinion, while ZDP-189 definitely holds an edge longer than VG-10, it also takes longer for me to sharpen, negating any time savings the edge holding provides. ZDP-189 also has shown more of both patina-lik...

Re: Kitchen utility knife recommendations?

Only looked at New Graham who has the K05 mislabeled as Paring Knife but show them in stock. So does Spyderco itself. You might also consider the Bow River. While not marketed as a kitchen knife, and a little thicker bladed than I generally prefer, I've been quite impressed by the way mine works in ...

Re: Where is my Bow River ?

One arrived here today from KnifeWorks. Got put to work at lunch time slicing up a tomato and cutting up my sandwich. May not be my last, as I'm very favorably impressed by both the F&F and the way it handles.

Re: What percentage of your Spyderco collection consists of fixed blades?

Even though my last three Spyderco purchases have all been fixed blades, they still account for considerably less than 10% of my Spyderco collection.

Re: Idea: Lanyard Tube Removal Tool

I am unsure why they need to be flared. My S110V Para2 wasn’t flared and I was happy with that. I don’t think that any of my Taichung knives are flared. I would be happy if they just stopped doing it. I just use a hardwood dowel with a little gorilla tape wrapped around it. Works fine so far. I am ...

Re: Best knife design and steel pairings?

Stretch and Kiwi are the Spyderco models I like the most, Kiwi only ever came in VG-10 and it's also my preferred steel for the Stretch as everything else it's been offered in had less rust resistance.

Re: Anyone prefer manual seats in a car?

As long as the driver's seat goes back far enough that I can have the steering wheel far enough back for ease of entry and exit, I really don't care if it's manual or power. That said, I really do like that I can push one button and return the seat to "my" settings for height, seatback tilt, lumbar ...

Re: Do you immediately sharpen a new Spyderco?

Not as a general rule. However, out of the ones I use, I've had one folder and a couple of the Kitchen Sharps that failed the thumbnail test and got sharpened immediately.

Re: Is weak detente a warranty issue?

Only way to know for sure whether it's a warranty issue would be to send the knife back to Spyderco for evaluation. Before doing that, if you haven't already done so, I'd suggest making sure there's nothing in the dimple in the tang that the ball detent is suppose to drop into to provide blade reten...
