Re: Mantra Bearing Race

My Mantra came off center...and what is the most obvious fix (to me)...? Tighten the pivot. That somehow has been labeled as abnormal abuse, therefor putting the buyer on the hook for a poor design. If Spyderco has become a "quality lottery" with little backup from customer service, then I can't jus...

Re: Mantra Bearing Race

I have not purchased a Spyderco since the Mantra debacle. It was really unfair to the customers, in my opinion...I think a trade in for a CQI model should have been offered. It may have been an expensive fix, but would have been the right thing to do, in my opinion. In such a competitive field (cut...

Re: Your favorite Spyderco for fidgeting?

Among other things, I regard my Spydies as sculptures with moving parts. While sitting, I will put them in motion to feel their action and hear their clicks, but only from time to time, like when I’m reading the Forum. More often, they’re in my hand just so I can explore their shapes and textures w...

Re: Spyderco Reinhold Rhino Giveaway!!!

I'm in! The hero that I will highlight died in combat in Baghdad, Iraq while on a dismounted reconnaissance mission. Staff Sergeant Dwayne Peter Ryan Lewis was killed in combat on 2/27/2006. He was my team leader and was an extremely selfless individual. I had the good fortune to be assigned as his ...

Re: Value Line RIL?

I have had several Stainless steel RIL knives (not spyderco) that have broken from just opening and closing. Like bending a paper clip back and forth, eventually it will snap...in my experience. For this reason, I only buy titanium RIL knives. Anyone else have this issue? The one that stands out the...

That is awesome!! I like the sharpmaker spot in there.
Thanks. There's a few more holes plugged up now. It's a nice canvas for spyderco stickers, too. If I ever get some pins, I could stick them in the foam for display, too. That would be nice...

Re: Smaller chokwe

To stay true to the original Chokwe knife style, the mahogany Pakkawood used in the Delica and Endura sprints would be really cool. I vote for CTS-XHP with a compression lock, but also think a backlock or even CBBL would be interesting. It would be the first wooden handled, compression lock that Spy...

Re: Employment

I think if you exercise a little common sense within reason you can likely carry whatever you like in Oz albeit not legally. Really. OK. So what you’re saying is that you’re “free” to sneak around with items that you’ll be prosecuted for if you’re found carrying them. According to your laws, “you c...

Re: Sal, what are the chances for another DS93X Thor blade spydie?

The reason I passed on the 40th Native was the graphics on the blade. I would have ponied up if the anniversary logo had been just a tad more discreet.

Re: Which Models to Purchase for Value Increase?

Rare Spydercos are the most valuable, usually. So like Meat Man said, sprint runs and dealer exclusives seem to be the best bet for you. Some models that were regular production also command a premium. It's kind of a crap shoot to know what will be popular again. The Jester comes to mind...
