Re: The PERFECT Double Bladed Folder?

Wondering is a double blade could be made similar to the Tusk. Frame lock for one blade and ball lock for the other. I would want it stretched out a little and recess the blades more for comfort. Maybe possible, maybe not. That's a really interesting idea>> because for all intent and purposes the T...

Re: The PERFECT Double Bladed Folder?

Benchmade has a model called the 365 Outlast . This is a two-bladed knife with a seat belt cutter. One blade is a drop point in S30V, while the other has a blunted tip for prying, a serrated edge, and is made of 3V. I'm not saying that Spyderco should copy this, but I do find it interesting that Be...

The PERFECT Double Bladed Folder?

As many of you know I'm a really big fan of the C-44 Dyad model ( the big one). Oh yeah I also like the C-39 Dyad Jr. models too. For all of you newbies and people not aware the Dyad models were Spyderco's double bladed folders with one full PE blade and one full SE blade in the same folder. To have...

Re: Who Rates Lubrications?

Or are there side by side tests that we can do ourselves to determine which lubricant would be good for certain applications or uses? Hey Joe, one thing you can try; if you have a knife apart, clean the pivot pin and pivot hole in the blade with isopropyl alcohol say. Put the pin in the hole and pi...

Re: Behold! The elusive "Dodofly"!

IF they do this "Dodofly" I will buy one ASAP as long as it's available in Spyderedge. The original 2003 Dodo was available in SE for about two years and it's high time we got that blade back in SE. Would rather have a G-10 handle but if FRN will bring it to the main line up I can live with it in FR...

Re: Sharpening with leather.

This topic of "Sharpening With Leather" is one I've thought about a lot. But "FK" makes a great point to where you must use it when the blade is at least relatively sharp. It would have a "Sharp-Maintainer" concept rather than to sharpen a super-steel blade from profiling all the way to fine tuning ...

Who Rates Lubrications?

In the past year or so we've had some pretty thought provoking threads of a wide range of lubricants. We have one now at this time about whether or not the current hype about "Nano-Oil" is valid or not>> especially applying to the uses on folding knives. With so many entities that test all kinds of ...

Re: Don't you love FRN, G10, and Stainless Steel?

As a general rule and up till the past 15 years or so I've tended to gravitate toward mother nature's materials over many of the newer man made marvels. I do believe it was my love of 3 of the big premium commercial knife manufacturers that made me go in the other direction. My first ever Spyderco f...

Re: Garlic as a healing remedy?

There is one big hidden agenda in all of this "herb versus pharmaceutical" debate. At one time we had the oil cartel more or less driving the country's economy. But now in this modern time it goes without saying that we are firmly embraced in a pharmaceutical cartel :( With all the hoopla about thes...

Re: How can we get more women interested in Spyderco knives?

Spyderco historically has made a few models with PINK handles. Pink historically being a color that women seem to like I'm sure that Spyderco had that in mind when they made those Pink handled models. The last two girlfriends I had both seemed to prefer Swiss Army Knives over anything in my Spyderco...

Re: Just ordered some Nano Oil *cough snake oil cough*

I use ballistol exclusively on all my knives and guns. It seems to be more slick than mineral oil, or other common firearm lubricants. It's cheap and it works. BALLISTOL does have properties of good lubricity but I mainly like Ballistol as a cleaner, restorer and to some degree a preventative of co...

Re: Just ordered some Nano Oil *cough snake oil cough*

I use militec-1, too, on knife pivots and on firearms. The grease is good too on firearm slides and M1a/M1 bolts & op rods. I also use mineral oil on blades for corrosion protection. Automotive lubricants work fine too in both applications. What has more critical lube needs, your $500 knife or $50k...

Has anyone ever used Benchmade Blue Lube? It's the only thing I've used and seems to work pretty well. Interested in how it stacks up against the others from anybody with experience with it? Yeah I've heard good stuff about that lube that Benchmade sells. But I've yet to talk to anyone who has used...

Re: Victorinox "Champ" model?

I regularly carry a Vic. Craftsman which is a six layer SAK, almost as big as the champs. I cannot really carry and use any over 6 layers. I really like my craftsman though. It has sadly been discoed for many years now. The truth is that these large SAKs are no bigger or heavier than the plier base...

The only one of the really thick Victorinox models I have is the Swisschamp. It's really well-made, but in all the years I've owned it I've barely carried it. It stays in a drawer in its sheath. I always EDC two SAKs anyway; a black Executive, and either a red Spartan or Alox Pioneer. They compleme...

I think those monsters are for collectors only! The biggest I have is the modern Swisschamp and I like it. It’s basically an urban multi-tool. I’ve lost count of the hotel door handles, sunglasses/spectacles, zips and bits of jewellery I’ve fixed with it. No good for pocket carry, though. Yeah the ...
