Re: Repairing bent wire clips

Great idea! Thanks for sharing...

I haven't had to do any major bending/repair yet but it might also come in handy for some fine tuning.

Re: How was your 2019?

The other was the discontinued Lil Sub Hilt which doesn’t have much if anything Lil about it. If you like the robust build of the GB1 you might also...

I just cannot warm up to FRN or LW models, regardless of color or if they glow in the dark.

Re: Note to self - only let the GF carry stainless knives...

Brake cleaner works pretty well for me. Brake cleaner is way harsh! A stone and denatured alcohol should handle the adhesive. A stone is less harsh than brake cleaner??? I must be missing something??? :confused: The next time I need to sharpen or reprofile a knife i'll try some brake cleaner.

It will be interesting to see what he comes up with. Hopefully it will be a little more lefty friendly than the Air/Advocate. Love my GB2!

Surprised to see the Sage1 on there. What a classic Spyderco!
That's the only one I've got my eyes on...sad to see it go!
I'm also surprised to see the Sage1 on the list. To me it's also one of those quintessential Spydercos.

Re: Largest Spyderco you're comfortable with?

Kapara or GB2 are as large as I carry. Hell, I could probably get by with a Dog Tag eighty percent of the time.

Re: Smallest spyderco you are comfortable with?

Besides the Dog Tag on my keychain, the Chaparral / Cat is about as small as I carry these days. I have a Dragonfly but never carried it.

Nice job. Did you also polish the hardware? Looks like it has a little extra bling to it.

And yet, some folks think the Taichung logos look better because they appear to be more intricate than the ones on Golden or Seki Spydercos.
That would be me. I just like the Taichung logo better and of all things the web like design.
