Re: Lets talk stropping

I use a knivesplus strop block to finish my edges after sharpening. I also use it to touch up the edge between sharpenings. Works pretty well for me. I will agree though that a stropped edge has far less bite than a non stropped one.

Re: eBay selling

I prefer buy it now as I like to actually know what I'm getting. I also sell on bladeforums and for $30 its a small investment that you easily make back if you sell a couple knives just because you don't have the ebay fees. Recently I have been selling on reddit as well. I like this a lot and best p...

Re: Lc200n Dragonfly 2

Yes black handled lc2000n ffg dragonfly salt. I would buy 3 right off. I already have to scale swap to put black handles with my h1 dragonfly. Save me some trouble and give me LC200n to boot. I'm a happy camper. It really is all you ever need in a knife for most tasks. I have my smuggled in my waist...

Re: Manix 2 Salt?

I would have to pull the trigger on one of these as well. Especially if it was in black as opposed to the bright yellow. I'm loving my native salt but had to do a scale swap with my s30v because the yellow is just too loud for edc for me. I wish they would make all the salts in black frn/trcp. It co...

Re: Best PM2 For Ocean Work?

Yeah the hardware will be the bigger issue. I've had rust on my pm2 hardware from regular use away from water.

Looks good! They need to make it easy on us and drop a blacked out Native Salt soon. And I'm still waiting on a Blacked out Dragonfly 2 Salt. Those would make my 2019 a great year! :)
Agreed. I would greatly want one of each of those! Come on Spyderco please.

Ok. Thanks. That just looks like it turned out perfect! I’ve always used the liquid. Wasn’t sure if one was better than the other.

Black powder RIT dissolved in sauce pan, brought to near boil and turned off heat. Also added a little vinegar and dish soap. Suspended knife in solution for 15 minutes. Rinsed under cold water.
So you think the powder works better than the liquid?

Re: native salt!

I RIT dyed the handle for more discreet pocket carry. I did not disassemble because I wanted the symmetry. I also sanded under the clip to make for smoother (un)pocketing. https://i.imgur.com/ONmu8i9l.jpg https://i.imgur.com/bg6kkTRl.jpg Man that took the dye really well. What technique did you use...

Re: native salt!

The pivot on the backside is actually a hexagon shape where it fits into the frn so it won’t turn. No need for a second screwdriver.

Re: LC200N Native 5 Salt. Still no knife. Come on! When???

Hi Cobra, It could be done, but I really see no performance or practical reason to do so. I think the Caribbean could serve that function?

Re: LC200N Native 5 Salt. Still no knife. Come on! When???

Got mine yesterday from KC. Does anyone else find theirs very stiff. Mine is, and it's not a "tight pivot" issue. Rather it seems to be the amount of tension the spring and lockbar put on the blade. Mine is, too, but I haven't had a chance to try adjusting the pivot. I adjusted the pivot on mine to...

Re: How to get more women/females into Spyderco?

Just got my wife a used Delica. She likes it as I got it in her favorite color blue. Funny part is I got her virtually the same knife several years ago and she didn't want it. I was much more obsessed with knives then so she didn't want anything to do with them. My obsession has become more of a hob...
