Re: Manbug lockbar travel

My HAP40 Manbug is the same way. I don't have any Ladybugs handy, but it seems like they do require more manipulation to unlock. Either way, it doesn't bother me at all. The lock on the Manny is perfectly adequate

Re: David Boyle dents on lockbacks

Just got my first Native, a cruwear Native 5 Knifecenter exclusive. I love the thing, and it is very ergonomic but I very much wish it had a Boye dent. In fact, this is my first and last Native unless a Boye dent is reintroduced (I believe it was present on some previous models). Can you add the de...

Re: Slipit as a base for testing new steels

I think the UKPK should be used for USA steels and the Urban for European steels. Less shipping should help keep costs down. Now we just need a nice Japanese slipppie for Japanese steels. :) I second all of the above. It would be cool to have a JPK. It would be a UKPK with a dab of wasabi. Perhaps ...

Re: Discussion: What do you think is the best size for an EDC folder?

Here in the great State of Missouri where I'm living we are blessed with a 4 inch blade length limit for a folder. Since when did restrictions become blessings? :confused: To answer the original question, I've found the Para 3 LW to be a great size for my use. I suppose the G10 model could be inclu...

Re: New to the knife scene

The Cruwear Micarta is a bit of anomoly in that we didn't make near enough. Our bad. So they can be hard to find, expensive, or impossible to find. sal Maybe there are some in a box lost in a closet somewhere. Nudge. Hint. Wink. ;) If it makes you feel any better, I didn't think they would sell so ...

Re: Which direction does the spring go when installing it in a Stretch?

The longer leg should go in the backspacer. The end of the short leg usually goes behind the step in the lockbar.

Stupid question: Is the end of the spring touching the lockbar?

Re: Interest in a Super Blue Para 3?

All 3 of my samples of Superblue have had blades warped towards the non-clip side.. Move the clip to the other side for a while and it should even out. :D I'm a big fan of the Para 3 LW, so that would be my preference. Perhaps a Smurf blue would be fitting. Although, denim micarta would be fantasti...

Re: Authorized Dealers??

I'm surprised so many have never heard of Knife Connection. I suppose they are more popular amongst the fixed blade crowd.

I'd love a throwback in white linen micarta with the smooth pivot "disc" and swedge. Super Blue or HAP 40 might be good sellers. Cruwear would sell out in 5 minutes.

Re: Is the Siren a Salt?

The description on the app says it has a secure grip for wet conditions. It's not listed as a Salt, but it has to be corrosion-resistant throughout. Otherwise, what's the point?

As an aside, the app also says it weighs 81,977 ounces.

Re: Best Spydie for kayaking and canoeing...

I did some kayaking just this morning. I had my Native Salt PE in my pocket, but I've been thinking of something for the pocket on my PFD. Perhaps a Salt 2, as it might be the largest that will fit, and I do love them. I'm also toying with the idea of a Pacific Salt on a retractor that will always s...
