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 understand this as a promotional item, but, otherwise, it makes no sense to me.

Might be a good time for another Jess Horn piece. Which one?

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...

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

Might even search online for a Teal Delica at some point.

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...
