Re: Which spyderco is in the mail?

One of these: A5B654AF-26FC-4CA4-A72C-A59E6A8B678C.jpeg Nice! That's a rare one isn't it? It’s the 2014 sprint run that I wasn’t a Spydie-nut for yet. Edge is still factory with light use and just touched up on a Sharpmaker. I periodically kick myself for not buying the CF Cru-wear Manix (Knifecent...

Re: SE performance is more than simply teeth vs no teeth.

I've never reprofiled serrations... if I wanted to make the serrations less deep / more shallow, would I just use the sharpmaker at 30 degrees and go? Or would 40 degrees cut the tips off faster? I want my dfly salt to be similar to my dfly salt hawkbill https://forum.spyderco.com/download/file.php...

Re: October and Rex45 aka RexTober!

For Rex-45, I’ve only had the Military and Manix LW in the pocket so far. I usually have another knife accompanying it. Here’s today’s carry: What is the small one? Looks great. Thanks! It’s a blue P.I.T.S. Slipjoint, all titanium handle, 3” N690Co blade. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=2AOM7J0HjbU (...

Re: What's your favorite odd duck/black sheep model?

It’s the Mantra 2 for me. I dislike liner and frame locks, but this thing surprised me. I really enjoy it despite the lock type, failure-prone bearing washers, not perfectly smooth action, and lock stick.

Re: Knifeworks Exclusive CTS-204P Delica 4

Very cool that they’re branching out from the Military/Para line, but I’ll wait for something other than a Delica. Good knife, just not for me.

Re: K390 IS "The M4 Killer"

Cru-wear is also far more corrosion resistant than K390, Maxamet, M4, and Rex 45. I do not oil Cru-wear and have no fear of cutting meats, acidic fruits, etc. with it, since Cru-wear has yet to patina in my use. K390, Maxamet, M4, and Rex 45 will patina relatively easily in the use I describe above.

Re: Manix2 LW Rex45

I noticed the FRN vs FRCP discrepancy as well. I was going to call, asking about that, but I didn’t get around to it this week. It’s worthy of note, though, that the Native FRN and the Manix FRCP are still slightly different shades of burnt orange. I plan to post a picture comparing them to old and...

I actually like the color better than the HAP40 sprints. It's little more vibrant
I absolutely agree.

Re: Golden Quality

First of all, sorry to everyone for continuing this tangent... :o Also I don't really consider uneven bevels to be any sort of a defect, since it's so easily fixed. Abyss_Fish, please don’t mistake this as an offensive response. I’m just compelled to better explain my experience and meaning. Unevenn...

Re: Golden Quality

After the Cru-carta Shaman, every single one of the 5 Shamans I’ve had has had the show-side tip over-ground. It’s a flaw in the sharpening robot’s programming. Here’s my best picture of it. It doesn’t look severe from this bad angle, but the edge bevel was 1.5-2 times as tall at the tip than the av...
