Re: Para3 - CPM-SPY27 now shipping!

Holy crap is this an improvement! This Lynch clip not only solves my problem shown in my previous post, but it’s 100 times more comfortable and looks better. I can barely feel it at all and can’t make it dig into my hand if I try. It doesn’t carry any different but is less noticeable as it’s not as...

What is DC material? :confused:
Don't know for sure but I assume he's referring to DC18N vs DS93X

Re: Mantra Detent Ball

Sorry to resurrect this old thread, but does anyone have a measurement (or better yet a link) for a ceramic ball to replace the detent ball on a Mantra 2? Tom I somehow missed this before. I did my best to measure mine when I had it apart. It was deformed and hard to measure. My best guess was that...

Re: Mantra 2 ??

A gave Signalman1 the lowdown on the Mantras offline. Ever since I fixed the flattened detent ball on mine it flips way better than it ever has. I happen to be carrying my Mantra today. It still amazes me how much better it flips open now. No wrist action needed with mine. I have several ZTs and oth...

Re: Something I do not understand about the Chaparral

....Some folks simply leave it partially open overnight or longer, which works as well. Yeah this doesn't actually work. If it did then they're not using very good steel for the springs and they'd all be getting weaker over time. Eventually, people would be complaining the springs are too weak. Peo...

Re: Something I do not understand about the Chaparral

The lock bar on my Chap lw was very stiff out of the box, but after a break in period it basically feels ideal to me now. I'm curious if anyone who has done the manual lock spring adjustment had it become too soft over time and ended up moving it back? Guess it's possible that mine "broke in" by sl...

Recently acquired a Chap in CF the lockbar was very stiff and uncomfortable to disengage. Dissembled the knife and slid the lockbar spring slightly forward (about 1/8"), fixed the problem.

Thx to Sharp Guy & cptdean for the fix!

Re: Sage 5 Lightweight

Good news! Sage LW in CTS XHP would be right on. I really like XHP, but even in my very limited experience it seems to be really close to S30V (current Sage 5 LW) in most of its properties (edge retention, "sharpenability")... maybe an additionally iteration of this knife should feature a more "dif...

Re: Swayback Lookout Thread

The sculpted one from MXGgear works well. https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/323472378015383552/731254881775779942/20200710_170536.jpg I may go with that one. While I'd prefer the wire clip I don't mind the stock hourglass clip as much as some other folks. But I do like how that sculpted clip l...

Re: TeroTuf!

How much moisture do TeroTuf scales absorb? I had an idea to use some for a LC200N Mule scales. I don't know if you can really call it "moisture" but the mineral oil I applied to my scales shown in the pics on the last page, has dried up quite a bit and lightened the color. I've only carried the kn...

Re: Knife monogamy is a satisfying yet boring life

In a way I envy your monogamous and boring ways. There's just too many models that I like having and I still enjoy switching them out and carrying something different each day. I'm starting to come around a little though. I recently made a trip back home (Chicago area) to visit family and friends an...

Re: Sage 5 Lightweight

At one point Sal said the nice thing about doing the Sage 5 LW is it opens things up for the possibility of doing dealer exclusives with other steels and different handle colors. That's why I've been holding off from buying the regular production model. FWIW, a friend recently sent me his Sage 5 LW ...

I'd probably be in for one depending on what the final version looks like. This thread reminds me that I need to get my Baby Horn out of the gun safe and into my pocket more.
