Not sure what you mean exactly, but it looks like perfect lockup to me! :-)
There is something questionable here, for sure.
Seems like i missed something on the pictures...

Re: Canadian UKPK

If it’s that hard to open, I’ll pass. Seems unnecessary. Might as well lock closed too. I mean it's about legal requirements first, if one is looking for easy to deploy knives in the first place, there are enough options already available. Besides, locking closed is not the worst idea of all times,...

Re: Canadian UKPK

Hi Jazz, Yes, it's a lock back, but the issue with THO is to make inertia opening impossible, which is very difficult on any locking knife. I believe I can inertia open any of the so called THO models that are considered legal in Germany. Inertia opening is one hand open. We're working on our first...

Re: Sharpening high vanadium steels

I'm no expert by any means, but from my understanding, while diamond stones will be a lot faster on high carbide steels, the Spyderco ceramics should still be harder than the vanadium carbides meaning hard enough to cut them. I'd anyway use them only for refining/finishing with a light touch because...

Re: The PITS - Get One Before They Are Gone!

My PITS came without loctite. That was even before the whole discussion. I think all of my Maniago models came without it iirc

Re: Shipping of internal parts

1) Include a spare set of washers and bearing with every flipper and charge a extra few dollars. (Buy a lot of fishing gear (reels) and nearly all reels used to have a spare set of drag washers.) IMO that would be a little over the top and unnecessary because i still think that the majority of kniv...

Re: What do Spyderco’s Distributor’s do?

No I am blaming the distributors (except for one or two retailers as notable exceptions) to sell at full catalog price with a 1:1 conversion of dollar and Euro. Nobody in their right mind buys at that price. There are two European vendors I am willing to buy from but they don't always have the full...

Interesting discussion. As an overseas-customer i'm all for new options of course, although i don't think that it would be necessary for Spyderco to provide internal parts. I maintain and take apart my knives myself and fully understand the consequences. I also try to use the right knife for the ri...

Re: Got my Para Military 2!

Very good choice! The PM2 is great, the black/satin S30V version was my first Spyderco ever. As opposed to some i do love the fine tip and never managed to break the ones on my PM2s. What i did manage though, was to slice my pants while whittling :-D there was absolutely no resistance from the cloth...

Re: Wood scales

Good start, keep on going! There are so many nice types of wood you can choose from. Lately, i have used a lot of walnut for wooden handles. It's pretty easy to shape and finish and looks fantastic when finished properly. I'm usually doing all the shaping and finishing by hand up to 3000 grit sandpa...

Re: Bad experience from Customer Service

I understand your frustration. It can be difficult If you don't live in the US. I once asked for a few replacement screws though and although Spyderco could not provide all of them, they've sent me those that they could scrape together for the knives i requested - free of charge. Thanks again for th...
