VERY excited for this one!!! Not missing the Teal FRN again.

Might even search online for a Teal Delica at some point.
Feel free to send me a PM.

What steels and scales combos would one like to see?
Curtain colors and materials don't concern me much, long as they aren't pink or fuchsia.
What if they don't match the furniture?

Re: Straight-spine Stretch

Oh thanks for sharing; that's true he did mention ivory FRN, which is cool, because I don't think we've seen that before. If the current edge geometry was kept but the spine simply extended from the top of the finger ramp to the tip that would make a pretty wide blade wouldn't it? I kinda like that...

Re: Lil' Matriach Sprint in Hap40?

The HAP40 sprint has been carried out to more models/variations than before, to include the Delica Wharncliffe. I don't see any reason to stop now. I'm on board for any new Lil Matriarchs, especially plain edge.

Hi Mac,

The Province is getting closer. More involved than it might seem.

On the LC200N, anything is possible.

Re: My Native 5 Maxamet

Nice job on the clip. The stock one hits too far forward and the edge of the logo tends to drag on your pocket.

Eric called the model a Para Military 3 a few times in the video. Is it not just Para 3?

Re: Native Salt owners?

I took mine apart again today and degreased the pivot bushing. It turns out what I thought was a washer of some sort was really just grease. I shot it with some silicone lubricant and reassembled. It doesn't quite feel as good as my other Natives but it is much improved. It seems there may have been...

Re: Lil' Native CompLock Pivot Screws

I usually adjust only one screw, usually starboard side as I'm right handed. However, adjusting both screws evenly would probably be more "correct."

Thank you all. Oh yes, I plan to get a N5 Maxamet. I like the MXG clip for my Para 3, so will look into getting one for the N5???? Yes, I do sand the the G10 under the clip and could do the same for the FRN. The contct point for the clip is a smooth round Spyderco emblem, you shouldnt need to The e...

Re: Manbug Salt - use for cutting braided fishing line?

The best thing I've found for braid is the Boomerang Tools snips (not actually from the Land of Bloke, unfortunately). There are several styles, including this saltwater model:

Re: Back Lock Question Re: Disassembly

I second the Native 5, lightweight, any way. Remove 3 screws and pop off the port scale. The backspacer is built into the starboard scale, so the spring stays in place along with the lock bar and blade. There's no need for a third hand to hold the lock bar open whilst maneuvering the blade sandwich ...

Re: G10 UKPK officially makes a return! Heinnie Haynes Exclusive

The temptation was too much. One on the way. I was charged the full price of $121. Should have made a comment in the box to avoid the VAT, but didn't. You would think they would see that it is shipping to the US and not charge the Tax. Anyway, I'm looking forward to this one. How bad was shipping?

Re: Pacific Salt 2

From what I can see, people love the Pacific Salt because of the handle design. It's a throwback to their much-beloved Delica-Endura generation 3 era. They love the shape, the texture, and the clip. As the owner of the latest Spyderhawk sprint I would have to agree. For the second generation I'd rec...

Re: Native Salt owners?

The Salt, however, has a pivot that looks to be almost split with a washer in between the halves (on end). ... This leads me to believe the problem is with the pivot and not the lockbar. did you get a picture of this detail? i’m not seeing what you are referring to. if not, no worries. i’m just cur...

Re: 4 new knives all very dry.

I've noticed the most oil on models straight out of Seki. I don't recall seeing it on anything from Golden, but I'm probably wrong. Either way, I have yet to see a hint of corrosion on anything from Spyderco, even HAP40 and V-Toku.
