Re: What Spyderco is in your pocket today??

Didn't think I'd like this one based on specs/pics. Sure was dead wrong! The SpyOpera's been kicking everything else outta my pocket for the last week. Love this lil knife.

Re: screw compatibility

Yep, they're both Taichung spydies, and I'd imagine that's the main factor (factory/country of origin) for compatibility. The Taichung spydies are gonna use metric hardware, while the Golden USA ones use standard US hardware. Would imagine the Seki City also use metric, but could be using different ...

Great work as always! The anyway very slim Kapara must be a dream to carry now...
Thanks so much Wartstein! Yeah, she just disappears in the pocket now for sure.

Re: Spyderco knife mods

Put a new clip on my mini Swayback. Was getting hotspots w/ the first clip (a modded Southard clip), so redrilled for an RGT milled one - hotspots gone, feels really good.

Re: What Spyderco is in your pocket today??

Had my Police 4 IWB today. Was excited to test out the fresh edge. Going back to the Pacific 2 tomorrow. Noticed rust forming on the blade after four hours . Wonder if this is only due to "different chemical sweat composition" or maybe more a combination of sweat and the general climate one happens...

Re: Mini Chef chop

Random question, but what tap and die set do you use? For clip redrilling/tapping I use a #50 bit and 2-56 tap, except for ti handles - works better to use a slightly bigger bit, like a #49 or 5/64". The ti gets all 'gummy' and binds/breaks taps like craze (for me at least) w/ the standard #50 hole...

Re: Mini Chef chop

Thanks for the kind words Spyderco familia! I always want to ask, how do you chop the blade? Grinding it all off with belt sander is kinda time consuming. Saw is out of option on hardened steel. Angle grinder generates too much heat. How do you do it? If it is not a trade secret :D I just use a drem...

Mini Chef chop

Chopped her down yesterday - cutting edge is now 3", handle is 4.12". Also removed the finger guard for more grip area, added a clip from a Kizer mini Sheepdog.

Re: Mini Swayback chop

Yup, very impressive as always! Thanks for sharing. Thanks so much BFK, much appreciated brotha! Very fine work, as always, Digdug. I’m curious as to whether the balance point of the knife changes much after you do your chops? I guess, as you take material both off the blade and the rear of the han...

Re: Mini Swayback chop

Thanks for the kind words folks, I really appreciate it! Nice! I was hoping you'd find a way to put a wire clip on it lol Thanks SG - me too, but cutting those precise notches is beyond my skills right now! Did you leave the cutout bare Ti, or did you refinish it somehow? Thanks Big50, I refinished ...

Mini Swayback chop

Just finished this last night - 3" blade, 4" handle. Widened the cutout, and added a thumbramp to it. Clip is modified from a Lum Chinese folder. Then stonewashed/oxi-darkened and flame ano'd the clip/hardware. https://i.imgur.com/UB1Bdcd.jpg https://i.imgur.com/cBddzcj.jpg https://i.imgur.com/yPlEt...
