Re: Is weak detente a warranty issue?

I just dremeled the detent on my dice and it got waaaaaay better! Took 4-5 re-assemblies but worth it.

Re: K390 fans rejoice!

Since I've missed all the cool steel delica wharnies I'd certainly jump at one in k390 regardless of colour.

Re: I have to be honest, flipper detents need to be stronger.

Did you simply drill the detent hole out slightly deeper? Or increase the spring strength of the liner? spring strength may play a role, but that adds to the friction when opening and closing. What we've noticed on the taichung models is that the detent hole in the blade is smaller than the detent ...

Knives of a Commercial Diver

First off I'd like to say that these are not my pictures, I found them on imgur. But I though it was fun to see Spyderco knives getting used!

Wharncliffe Para Military 2?

I am totally hooked on spydercos wharncliffe blades and since we've seen a tanto pm2 in the shadows, maybe a wharncliffe one isn't totally umrealistic?

Re: ready for a new native

I enjoy use a "hammer" grip with my native for heavy cuts and my experience with doing that with a compression lock is not so great. Try doing som heavy push cutting with a pm2 and the compression locks quickly starts digging in... It would be cool with an axis style lock but there is probably not e...

Re: What did you use your Spyderco for last?

I used the great edge retention of a s90v native so cut a few slices of cucumber for a sandwich. I sure hope it won't break from that hard use!

Re: Spyderco Dice Lightweight - Who needs a Para 3 LW?

Sonorum, thanks to you I was encouraged to lighten my Dice as well. I give you credit for this. I didn't contour the G10, just sanded the course texture down a bit. Super nice! Is it peel ply g-10? I really hope the Dice and Domino patterns stay around in some form or another. They are good pattern...

Re: Spyderco Dice Lightweight - Who needs a Para 3 LW?

It is a really good knife and I wish they made a second generation with improved flipping and lighter weight but still with a good steel and exclusive titanium feel. No I can't shake it open, to much detent and to light of a blade.

Re: Spyderco Dice Lightweight - Who needs a Para 3 LW?

That is a super work, Sonorum. I like my Dice as well, but don't carry it because of the weight, and the thickness of the handle. I looked into doing what you did, but chickened out because the bearing race work. So flipping is 90%, not bad. Give it shot! You're not destroying any original knife pa...

Re: Spyderco Dice Lightweight - Who needs a Para 3 LW?

I thought the thin g10 would feel fragile but I've been cutting wood and cardboard with it today and it really feels solid. You can't squeeze or twist it like with say a BM Bugout or something similar. Nice surprise! There's a reason the native 5 is going linerless. Yeah I have one in FRN and it fe...

Re: Spyderco Dice Lightweight - Who needs a Para 3 LW?

That shaved off more than I thought it would. Nice to see someone making their own scale! Would look better with the edge chamfered. I’m not sure how to do that easily though. Better machines, more time. You could probably do it with a file or sandpaper over something flat. This whole thing took le...

Spyderco Dice Lightweight - Who needs a Para 3 LW?

Warning, picture heavy post! When I saw that the Para 3 had gotten a weight reduction I thought that I should try something similar with one of my favorite knives, the Dice. It's a very nice knife, good size, fantastic steel, ok flipping action and great ergos for me. But it's a bit of a boat anchor...

One of my first Byrd knives was a stainless Crossbill. Is that what you're describing? https://www.amazon.com/Byrd-Crossbill-Stainless-Plain-Knife-x/dp/B001AXFVSM Yes, but no. Yes to FRN or G10, no to 5,5 oz of stainless. Also, if I'll allow myself to be picky and subjective I think the CC2 just lo...

Re: Batoning, SMH...

Being younger and more stupid than I am now, I once batoned a ~two inch stick with my PM2. The lock failed instantly and now you can see a slight chip on the tang of the blade where the lock bar meets the blade. Doesn't affect the lock in any practical sense now but it's not pretty. So yeah, don't b...
