Re: Watu spring tension

The lock lug IS a spring.
The SS liner is cut, bent, and heat treated, therefore a spring. FYI you can also use titanium as a liner and lock lug spring, only you don't have to heat treat titanium.

Re: Watu spring tension

Not even a week. The Watu is not the most beautiful and shapely knife, but I love "the package". It is quite comfortable when using it. I've cut 1x2 pine stick and no pain happened. The 20CV is sharpened so very well. The thin handle is also a plus. ;) Don't tell anyone but I've lessened t...

That's interesting JSumm. One too strong, one too soft.

Watu spring tension

Got my Watu yesterday and it's great, feels great in hand, the blade slices like a Calypso Jr. I have a question for you who have one. Is the spring tension a bit stronger than your other compression locks ? I have a little problem opening the blade (just a little too much detent). I have a lot of p...

Re: how do you use your para 3?

My para 3 is the most carried knife I have. The lightweight with M390 blade swapped in, is my fav.
Whittle wood, cut sisal twine, open plastic containers, cut cardboard, slice apples which I do every day.

Re: Differing tabs on compression locks.

Tab problem! There are more than one way to release a compression lock. Use thumb to push tab in, shake blade down to stop on your index finger, turn knife and close blade with thumb. I like this method better because you can keep more fingers on the handle ie more control. I used this method "...

Re: Spyderco Watu is the answer to my quest

Ok, if I want other scales than the CF, I will have to make my own. The prices are way out there ,on the site.
I have a little scale material, but I have no shop anymore.

Another bump for Gayle Bradley 3"

I think it was a couple years ago I brought this up. The powers that be, said "working on it".

I like the GB2 , just want a smaller one.

Re: Native 5 with Compression Lock please!

Compression lock Native 5, yes.
My N5's are great, but I've had surgery on my thumb and pressing the lock bar hurts my thumb.
A compression lock Native 5 would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Lil Para

I like smaller knives, not on that platform.
Smaller knives, in my opinion, should be slim.

SwayBack

The Swayback has been out a while now, so how is it long term? Is it proving to be a keeper?
I thought about getting one but the 3 1/2 blade is a bit over my likes. I'm returning now because this knife looks so good.

Re: Clip Finish

I like a flat gray clip. Every clip I have is that finish. It's dull and does not attract attention.
If I like the clip that comes with the knife, I blast it to that finish. If I don't like the clip that comes with the knife, I get an MXG clip.

Re: Is the Sage model too good?

I love lots of Spyderco models with Para 3 LW and Sage right at the top(3" area). I haven't bought a sage 5 LW, because am waiting on a different steel. ;) Like XHP, 20CV, Crew
