Re: If you could give any Spyderco the Cruwear / Micarta treatment.....

I'd love to see the shiny black micarta that was on some older Seki models come to the P4. But a Japanese knife deserves some Japanese steel. What's the Japanese equivalent of Cruwear? Hap40?

Re: Let's take a look inside my Police 4

Never tried it but I figure it will help go longer between maintenance. Stuff like this is why I switched to EDCing Salts. Somebody on here said they used bat wax under the scales on their Super Blue Mule. I thought that was a clever solution. I have some Frog Lube, and I don't trust that to last l...

Re: Let's take a look inside my Police 4

I haven't decided what I'm going to try coating the liners with after I sand out the rust. Have you coated your liners before? Has anyone else? I am curious how long the coating will last before it has to be done again. I realize there are lots of factors to this, but if you have to reapply the coa...

Re: KnifeJoy Damascus Delica and Endura

What is VG10 Damascus? Is that cladded VG10? Folded VG10? The whole use of the term 'Damascus' is kind of confusing to me because of the many ways that it seems to be used. Thanks! A lot of Damascus knives that come from Japan (or from the Japan heritage of knife making) seem to have Damascus cladd...

Another BKF fan here. Works great.

I've heard Mr Clean Magic Eraser works well too.
I've heard BKF works well. At my local grocery store, it only came in liquid form. Does that work just as well?

Re: I think Spyderco should do more titanium framelocks

Spyderco filed a patent for the compression lock on 23 February, 2000. That means their exclusive rights to use this style of lock will expire in four months. They might be trying to make one last push with this lock before they face outside competition. Are other companies just waiting for the pat...

p_atrick, did you try this when you had it set to tip up? Makes a big difference with larger knives like the Police:

Thanks, I'll try that out to see how it compares.

And yeah, I am trying tip down carry just for lols- I want to know how it is like..... I did the same thing to my P4 LW about a week ago. I haven't put it back yet. I think tip up is a bit more comfortable in the hand (but not by much). I think the knife goes into and out of the pocket better tip d...

Re: Sal, any plans for a fully serrated Police LW?

Police LW is somehow TOO large for me, still I want one more and more... I thought the same thing, but I convinced myself it would be a useful addition to my collection (a worker blade that I can use around my apartment). The more I use and handle it, the more I really enjoy this knife. At first, i...

I agree. I’m still not a big fan. I’d love a VG-10 military!
The P4 LW is everything you'd want in a VG-10 Military, only thinner and lighter.

Quickest Model to Sprint Run

The title is a bit awkward, but I didn't know how to to state this in a succinct manner. Which model saw the quickest time from release of the model to a sprint run? Sprint runs seem like a newer phenomena, so I'm guessing it has to be a recent model. I'm guessing it is the Shaman and the BladeHQ ve...

Sorry to get off topic, but for those of you that put a pox on orange and burnt orange to which schools are you referring? I went to A&M, so burnt orange will forever be associated with Texas. As for your Endura, I think the lock bar on the SG2 version is pretty sweet. I don't know anything about th...

Re: how to know when a sprint will be released?

The Spyderco app will push updates when knives are available, but I believe this is for the SFO. Once I get that notification, I start to be more vigilant on here and at the retailer sites.

Ever think about getting a loupe to see what your edges really look like? I hear Sal carries one around with him. I think I need to invest in one to help improve my sharpening skills.

Re: Massdrop (Drop) Supergold back in stock

I'd love to see the P4 LW added to this list. I've come to really like it, much more than I expected. That gold lock bar is nice.
