Re: Problem with Maxamet PM2 from the new run

Another theory why it took so long was maybe there were none in stock and the wait was for more to be made?

Re: Just the brown SM flats

Is the coarse (brown) side of a doublestuff the same as a sharpmaker brown? I get clean shaving de-burred edge from it.

Re: A plea to Spyderco:

Tests have shown that geometry handles all of the normal cutting tasks just fine. Since I started reading knife forums a few years ago, I've learned about 90% of my knife use is not normal. Same for all the people I grew up with and have worked with... Same for my Dad and Granddad, and probably eve...

Re: Small Knife Blues

It's especially laughable when it'd take all of two minutes to alter with a belt sander, and maybe five minutes with sand paper and elbow grease. Pretty tough to add blade length. I was thinking the same way. I'm halfway surprised more people don't do this. My s110v Military is approaching pm2 size...

Re: Small Knife Blues

Imagine how you'd feel if the tables were turned? Imagine if the Para 2 only came out in S30V plain edge, with the only other choice being DLC S30V plain edge. That's essentially the status of the Manix XL. It's just as old as the Para 2, and has been run in a grand total of two steels, both of whi...

Knife restrictions aren't the only reason people prefer smaller pocket knives... practical reasons are.
That's right.

Maybe more practical for some people but certainly not everyone.
I'd say practical for most people.

Re: KnifeCenter CPM-CRUWEAR Native 5 with smooth black G10

I did a 3 way n5 swap.

s35vn se, into the lw grey frn handle,
m4 into the lw black frn handle,
maxamet into the jade g10 handle.

All is good.

Re: Problem with Maxamet PM2 from the new run

I don't think it takes more than a few minutes to confirm: "The issue I have is the steel is soft... like to the point I can bend the tip of the blade with my thumb." If confirmed, no need to wait for a battery of tests to determine why, this knife is not going back to the customer. At this point I ...

Re: Removing rust from DLC M4?

Barkeepers friend. The powder is a bit more aggressive than the liquid. Available at most grocery stores for just a couple bucks. Seconding this. I do have to say, however, that m4 is probably the least sweat-tolerant steel I've ever experienced. I've avoided the m4 shaman and will continue to do s...

Re: Removing rust from DLC M4?

Not sure what I'm seeing there but have to ask, how can dlc rust and the bare edge be clean? It's been in the upper 90s to low 100s, and it's a fairly humid region here. I work outside, so it's probably from sweat, and the spots are on the portion of the blade that sits above the grip area, on the ...

Re: Para 3 Maxamet LW!!! (no, not another sprint or exclusive)

Excellent. :spyder:
I thought about doing this but decided against purchasing 2 knives to get one I'll use, and give the other away. I've done this in the past.
Hoping for future lw para3s in maxamet, rex45, and the longshot - k390.

Re: Urban LW Coyote—realistic look

At $65, I'll buy any blade steel variation of this knife. Anything I've considered flawed, has so far been easily fixed. At 65, I would as well. At 105, not so much. Yeah, your 65 would be about 25 to me? Not sure if your added cost is markup, taxes, or both. I would almost be ok if they sent it to...
