Re: Spyderco Waterway vs Coldsteel Master Hunter 3v

No input on the Waterway, but I own an original Master Hunter in CarbonV and it's more of a small club with an edge than a knife... I prefer their Recon Tanto pattern for my sharpened pry-bar needs ;)

Re: Factory edge poll

"other"

as in; some factory edges are good enough that I leave them unmolested until the knife needs its first serious sharpening, *then* I re-bevel, completely removing the original edge and running it right to the plunge line.

Re: Oxycodone warning

This whole discussion makes me thankful that my tolerance for these drugs is so low and that I hate the way they make me feel. I decided to take the discomfort and skip the pain pills (5/325 hydro/aceta) after my wisdom teeth and then many years later, My gall bladder were removed. Same with my two ...

Re: So when does this forum start speculating about the upcoming discontinued models???

Ahhh the sad taste of regret for all of those Spydies that never quite made it to your buy list and now they're gone!

It would be sad if the Rhino had such a short career, same for the CF Native... I hope you're wrong on those Spydergirl ;)

Re: KnifeCenter CPM-CRUWEAR Native 5 with smooth black G10

This one is my first non-LW Native. I'd been intending to eventually search out a transitional linerless/S35VN example, since I have zero interest in the extra weight of liners, but for the exact same price as S30V I'm psyched to have CruWear! I would have prefered a textured scale, but the smooth G...

Re: Questionable Techno 2 Lockup

I can see what you're talking about, I'd expect that the lock would be safe as long as there is sufficient engagement depth and that it might eventually wear in to fitting better. However, I'd also say that it's an important clearance and that it's out of spec by a fair amount, so a return for adjus...

Re: Problem with Maxamet PM2 from the new run

I don't think it takes more than a few minutes to confirm: "The issue I have is the steel is soft... like to the point I can bend the tip of the blade with my thumb." If confirmed, no need to wait for a battery of tests to determine why, this knife is not going back to the customer. At this point I...

Re: Removing this bastard lanyard tube?

I'm confused...if your just swapping scales, why did you totally dissemble the knife?? I just swapped scales on my Manix earlier tonight, first scale swap ever and it took about 15 minutes. I did one side at a time, removing all the screws and then prying the scale off the lanyard, install new scal...

Re: AUS-6 Stainless vs AUS-8 and others?

My only experience with AUS6 is Global kitchen knives, where it really doesn't hold an edge long, but re-sharpens extremely easily.

I retired my Globals to cheese and citrus duty in favor of laminate VG-10 Tojiros.

Re: M390 or Cruwear Delica?

I already have the M390 Delica, so I'll be getting both if I'm lucky enough to actually score one in CruWear amid the inevitable feeding frenzy :eek: If I had to pick just one, I might go with the M390, since I don't tend to beat on my Delicas as hard as some of the stouter Spydies in my collection.

So do other dealers! Woo hoo, it’s a sprint run! Maybe we will see the whole lineup? Bring on the Stretch!

Sprint, or distributor exclusive?

Either way I'm on board for one!!

...and an Endela or Endura in CruWear?!?
