Re: What am I doing wrong with the sharpmaker?

Thanks for the advice so far. It never occurred to me that I might not be hitting the right angle because the factory grind could be a different angle than the sharpmaker. I guess I’ll need to do some closer looking at what I’m doing.

What am I doing wrong with the sharpmaker?

I can get my knives pretty sharp with it. With some effort they will slice normal paper without snagging after maybe 10 minutes (vg10, cruwear, m4). I thought I was doing pretty good but then I got my para 3 m390 lightweight in the mail. I guess I have forgotten how sharp these things will get becau...

Re: Para3 LW in m390.. First LW exclusive

I’ll have to open my 2nd one and see if it’s centered. The action on the one I’ve messed with is perfect so I’m happy. I’m really glad I waited for the lightweight. It makes my delica feel obsolete. I feel bad for the people that missed out on this.

Re: Para3 LW in m390.. First LW exclusive

The manix is nice and all but it’s the size of a dinner plate in your pocket so it’s not really an apples to apples comparison. As far as lightweight small knives there aren’t that many with good steel and no lock rock.

Re: Para3 LW in m390.. First LW exclusive

They must have made a lot, I figured the first and only special lightweight p3 would have sold fast, even the g10 one sold in like an hour. Seems strange if you ask me but I guess they just estimated demand better this time.

How can they list items that haven’t even shipped and are still available on dlt? Any bets what people will pay for them on eBay?

Re: Hardware difference between cqi military and PM2?

Thanks, maybe I’ll take it apart and measure the pivot to be sure.

Hardware difference between cqi military and PM2?

Good morning,

Does anyone know whether the hardware between these are interchangeable? That is, the lanyard tube, two spacer things with T8 screws, and the pivot part with T10 screws?

CRUWEAR - Have been using it regularly since it came out in 2016, but the titanium scales are a recent addition (I need them to save my pockets from destruction :rolleyes: )

Re: Shipping of internal parts

That’s too bad you can’t at least buy common parts like the paramilitary 2 phosphor bronze washers, I want a new set as a backup because I want to polish mine down a bit because the action is tight with my flytanium scales. I’ve found some aftermarket washers that are the same size except for the OD...

One of the punches in a transfer punch set could be the right size but I haven’t checked.

Cheapest I've seen was $124 on Amazon, guessing they will never be under $100 again :(

Re: Sal - Is the Military 2 still happening?

I think people that are mad about the clip orientation must not have carried one, every knife I've had has been tip up but I just got a military and I think I adapted to it the second or third time I pulled it out of my pocket. Could be wrong, but it feels intuitive to me.
