Re: A Kydex Thread

Question: to bring the kydex into the shape I want, is heating = softening it and then cutting it with regular scissors an option? Have you tried this? Or does fitting it while it's cold and stiff bring any benefits? Yes, heating=softening=shaping. You need to press it to form it. If you form it pr...

Re: Elastic Ceramic. Wow!

Does anybody know how ceramic blades are being produced? Wouldn't Spyderco need new machinery or tools or whatever to be able to produce a mule from this stuff?

Re: Elastic Ceramic

How is a ceramic blade being produced? I have no idea. But I can imagine that Spyderco would need to invest in different / new machinery maybe in order to be able to produce say a mule with this? :confused:

Re: Is Sal Glesser Irreplaceable?

I had the feeling that lately Michael Janich took over Sal's mission to welcome each new forum member. Well not take it over, just support Sal. :) I don't know if I've ever seen a forum post by Eric. Eric's for sure super busy with the business side of Spyderco, so that's why, and it's totally ok! I...

Re: Retire The PM2?

There are other "Shaman" designs in-the-works, including a thinner lighter one with a thinner blade stock. sal Looking forward... Such a great design the Shaman, but will look perfect in the "little bit lighter" version Will look good, maybe even great in the "little bit lighter" version, but is pe...

Re: Favorite factory carbon fiber scales?

I don't own one (I wish I would) but I'd vote for the fluted CF of the N5.

Of the ones I own, I like the Para3 52100 CF scales the most. Very grippy, yet not aggressive.

Re: Retire The PM2?

Hear me out: Here is my proposal. Make a thinned out Shaman. Thinner scales and blade stock. Fix the nub everyone hates. This creates a knife that for all intents and purposes makes the PM2 obsolete. The Shaman basically fixed all the mechanical issues with the PM2. Got rid of the standoffs that ma...

Re: A Kydex Thread

Working with Kydex really is easy. ... Nice work! :) It's really good to see you did this yourself and experienced just how possible it is to make your own kydex sheath at home. I hope this inspires more people to give it a try. Well done! That's why I posted this. Again, I did not do it all myself...

Re: A Kydex Thread

Working with Kydex really is easy. I've purchased one semi-finished sheath off Amazon, and fit it to my mule yesterday, using a heat gun, two foam pads, two flat pieces of wood, and two screw clamps. I could've bought raw kydex sheets and DIY 100%, but in fact the semi-finished sheaths are cheaper. ...

Re: Most Favored Spyderco Collaborator(s) To Return?

Kevin Smock & Serge Panchenko. More than any other.

I'm a big big fan of collaborations, and there are many more makers that made extremely cool knives together with Spyderco. But Smock and Panchenko, I would kill for more collab knives with Spyderco. Well, not actually kill, but... :rolleyes:

Re: Sal's Casual Bombshell Thread

From the Mule Team subforum, in regards to the SPY27 mule, and possible FRN scales We are planning to make a steady run of Mule Team 2 pieces of SPY27 as a standard to be available regularly. It has a slightly different shape to distinguish it from regular Mule Teams. If the demand is there, we will...
