Re: Several Questions

All the holes in the trainers are to account for lack of bevels, which would normally shed some weight compared to a plain slab of steel. You can see the method used in fixed blades where extra holes are drilled out in the tang to account for the bevels as well as any scales that may be added. It's ...

Re: How to cancel account?

. I am choosing to leave the forum because although its an excellent overall forum filled with wonderful and knowledgable folks there is one member, who has an extremely divisive political tagline. Would you elect to total your car because you may see a bumper sticker with which you do not agree?

Re: (Intro & Questions) Spyderco, I Choose YOU!

Is it the pivot that is stiff, or is it the lock?

Re: Who of you buys only Spyderco, no other brand knives?

For modern folders it's Spyderco all the way for me. However, I also purchase GEC and SAKs now and again.

They were made that way by Spyderco, as far as I know. They are listed on the website as a genuine Spyderco product.

It'll work on stock scales. If the backspacer on your custom scales match the stock one I don't see why it wouldn't work.

Re: Para 3 LW slippery

I have the pivot adjust pretty loosely, just like most of my knives. The issue really is just getting past the detent. After that, it's smooth sailing. I thought about sanding, or maybe even routing out a groove with a Dremel. However, I'm afraid of what might happen. In the end, I suppose this is a...

Para 3 LW slippery

I'm a big fan of the P3 lightweight, but it sure is slippery on the edges. In use it's great, but I find it a bit hard to handle while opening. Has anyone found a way to add traction to the rounded bits? I don't want to detract from the fantastic aesthetics.

Re: Good kayak knife?

SE Pacific Salt. None of the Pacific Salt 2 nonsense. The first iteration is the last hurrah of the old school Endura 1 - 3 family and it should have remained, dagnabit! Oh well, at least I have two of them.
