Re: Need help understanding this steel

It sounds like it was written by someone who didn’t understand the description they were given. My guess is that it made just from Nitro-V.

PS, I hope it wasn’t you who got the last MM punch blade stockman!

Re: My favorite handle design

That handle + a caged ball bearing lock, and it would be a best seller. Sal said before that buyers often avoid thicker knives choosing thinner models to carry. That would explain the preponderance of slab sided folders in the market.

Re: Remove Loctite from G10

Maybe you can call Spyderco and see what they recommend? Or send it in for warranty work? I don't know your location, so either might be difficult or impossible, practically speaking.

Re: Salt Series without washers - Internal FRN wear?

I have yet to see one that has been worn out. It is more likely to lose it before you ever were the scales out, just guessing.

If anyone has one they have worn out, please post pictures!

Re: A Larger Scale Dodo Model? PLEASE!!!

... A larger Dodo ( especially in full SE) would be a beast for many type cutting jobs and it would be a dream folder for the commercial fishing industry and I'm willing to bet that many of the great firefighters we have here on the Forum would love a bigger Dodo model for their demanding job as we...

Re: Do we do people disservice?

... Any thoughts? Do we do a disservice to others with recommending knives that are beyond the ability or desire of others to sharpen? Would it be better to recommend something easier and then if they are interested they can move up? Sometime we do do a disservice. Just because we want certain attr...

Re: Is Sal Glesser Irreplaceable?

Based on Sal's past comments, I'm pretty sure Eric is calling the day to day shots at Sypderco. Sal is still fully involved, but no longer has to be bogged down with the grind, he can focus on the cool stuff. The last I read, Sal is out in Hawaii. Sal has built a lasting and positive legacy and taug...

Re: Who has the S35VN Tenacious LW? Does it get overlooked and if,WHY?!

It seems to be a very nice knife, made to Spyderco standards. However, I have so much Chinese made stuff now that I have zero need to seek out more. I do have a black on black Tenacious combo blade that I picked up used.

Re: Favorite factory carbon fiber scales?

Well, I've only owned a few, so keep that in mind. My favorite CF scales are on the Positron, even though it not a favored knife. I wouldn't mind seeing similar on other knives.

Re: Spyderco Custom Shop

There has been interest in this for over a decade now (and several threads), so it's nice to see some movement at Spyderco. It seems to be paying off for Buck Knives, so I cannot see it a negative for Spyderco. Spyderco is careful in their planning, so I don't see this as draining resources from the...

My much delayed N5 Salt SE. It was randomly delayed to middle of the year, but at least it was good deal. :rolleyes:

Re: DLT Kapara Exclusive!

The scales are smooth, but the ergos of the handle keep it locked pretty well in your hand. I have no concerns about slipping up onto the blade or around the handle in general on these, CF or G10. Personally, I prefer the G-10, but I think these will be popular for blade swaps, look for some afterm...

Hi Kristi,
I had posted today on the "KnifeJoy Exclusive Spyderco Para 3 CPM-20CV DLC blade, Grinch Green G10" thread. Now I do not see it. It was nothing critical, just weird to have it go poof.

Disappearing posts

I have made a couple of posts, one just today, that seem to disappear after I post them. Is it a glitch or am I violating some rule? Is it because I am using a VPN to access the site?

Re: Stretch 2 ZDP Combo Edge DIY?

Hi, welcome aboard!

This thread could be of some use to you: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=89353

I like your idea of using two different grit levels on the same blade. It's clever, practical, and affordable!
