Re: Sal, have you ever tested stainless steel knives in the dishwasher?

I just edited my reply. It was two years ago, but I think she told me the clothes washer was safe, in a pants pocket. Not the dishwasher. I think that is correct.

Re: Sal, have you ever tested stainless steel knives in the dishwasher?

When I called the Spyderco warranty folks about my Manix 2, the woman told me that the easiest way to clean a lot of grit and sand in the lock and pivot was to put it in the dishwasher washing machine in your pants pocket. So they have faith in it. I've never needed to do that, but it's good to know...

Re: Nirvana Titanium

If the problem is really bad, it could have been exchanged or returned or sent in for repair. I think it should be clear that he doesn't own a Nirvana or he would have resolved his issue by taking up Eric on his offer. He's simply muckraking and stirring the pot using other anecdotal information gl...

Re: Nirvana Titanium

Looks like EVERYONE is having the same LOCK DEFECT !! It's impossible to close. How could anyone at Spyderco check the mechanism, see that it won't close, and then say THIS IS OK !!?? I can tell that Sal is no longer in charge. His son Eric doesn't have the attention to detail !! And Eric doesn't c...

Well, one way to look at it is that the G10 texture will smooth out over time. So you'll get your wish by carrying it a lot.

Re: Nirvana has dropped!

In all honesty, will anyone actually carry and use this knife? I would be so afraid of getting even the smallest scuff or scratch on it that I would keep it in the safe and only touch occasionally to fondle and admire. That's the struggle I have; buying something so expensive and it serve no other ...

Re: Knife IP and Clones Explained
