Re: yet another "price increase"

I am an Amazon Associate in a fulfillment facility and I work in ICQA/Count track. I count items in the storage bins to verify the number of items available. I can not describe the excitement I feel when I have a Amazon Pod come in front of me and it contains Spyderco or Byrd knives... I always take...

Re: Migration to smaller knives....didn't realize

All that said, I think for day-in and day-out tasks, aka EDC, smaller thinner knives still win the day for a lot of people. I think many of us like thinner blades for the slicing as that is so much of what we do with our EDC. I like handy, smaller blade for a lot of reasons, but sadly, these days, ...

Re: S110v help

I can get a really nice sharp toothy edge on my Manix 2 LW S110v using a 600 grit CBN stone which is much harder than the steel almost as hard as diamond. CBN will cut every carbide that you will ever find in any blade even Maxamet and Rex 121. You only need a light touch to bring the edge up very ...

Re: Sharpness testing

Generally, I use a Razer Edge tester that I have. But the other night I had a friends PM2 on my KME and went to town on it to get rid of some obvious chips that he had managed to put into the bade. I had it cutting paper by barely swiping the edge down through the middle of the page. But I am a left...

Re: Manix 2 - Maxamet, new to me review.

1st knife for me of 2018... I LOVE IT. So much that I even decided to drop funds on a Native 5 LW in Maxamet in the same week...

But I prefer my Manix 2LW in the steel!

I am hoping they come back with the PM2 in it after re-visiting the grind.

Re: Hey Sal, any plans for CTS BD1N?

We'll probably slowly convert from BD1 to BD1N. I would not put it on a level of S90 though. sal Ohhhhhhhh I would like to chime into this idea a little. Byrd Raven 2, Byrd Crow 2, and Manix 2Lw go to CTS BD1N.. please? How about also updating the Efficient from 8Cr13MoV to CTS BD1N too? OMG.. the ...

Re: First Knife of 2018

I started off my 2018 by buying my Manix 2 Lightweight in Maxamet.. and three weeks later I found an opportunity to buy a Native 5 Lightweight in the same steel..

Love it...

Now.. I have plans to buy Lil Native and possibly a Para 3 before the end of the year

Re: Knife lubricant

So far.. I have been using Weapon Shield gun lubricant with good results.

It also is supposed to be "edible" but not flavored like Frog Lube.. but it has more of a cinnamon smell.. but my blades operate very well on it and it does not "gum" up

Re: I wish Spyderco would make...

I would actually like to see Spyderco re-visit the Efficient. Yes, I know its a Spyderco value line blade that is made in China. But aside of the 8Cr13MoV blade.. I really enjoy this knife and have it in my regular rotation. I would love to see a higher end steel and maybe an improvement on the wash...

Question on Sharpening Maxamet with the Sharpmaker

I am making long range plans with the future tax refund check. I have been looking at getting either the Native 5 or the Manix 2 Lightweight in Maxamet steel. But the thought came up in my head about sharpening the blades. I have a KME but I also use the Spyderco Sharpmaker and am wondering if it is...
