I have a griptillian in s30v and I'm not impressed with how quickly it goes dull.
The S30V is outstanding in comparison to other brands.
I would give it a try.

Re: My growing love for the Para3

My love for the Para 3 is now gone.

It's replaced by the Para 3 lightweight.

The perfect knife overall.

Not only look good but functional improving.

Re: Colors - Talkin' Story - Marketing

I started with Spydercos because I wanted to have a knife with a bright yellow handle. I wear often a blue or red skirt and want to match my knife. I wear a blue watch and want the knife to match. I want to easily recognize which knife it is. I have 2 black dragonfly, one with SE and 1 wharny. I bet...

Re: K390

You definitely should try.
Its not stainless so it gets very sharp.

Re: Who has the S35VN Tenacious LW? Does it get overlooked and if,WHY?!

Hi Wartstein. I would get one! I have the standard lightweight and I like it. It replaced my Endura. It similar in length but has a wider stock which is better for food cutting. Ergos are very good. It's a value folder which by definition is different from premium ones. Weight, design, materials. Bu...

Sage 5-Rex121 -Forum knife- Sal-series

Hello. This is not an April-joke! Sage 5 Rex121 would be the perfect forum knife. I always liked the idea of having a Spyderco prototype. Sal-series. The prototypes Sal carries and enjoys. It must not be perfect and can have flaws. Put rainbow scales on it. I don't care. Form/functions over optic. A...

Re: Knife Joy Exclusive Para 3 LW 20CV

I wanted to pull the trigger but the gun jammed.

Knifejoy does not ship to Europe.
I found 2 on ebay but I do not know if they ship to EU and they do not accepted answers.

I placed a bid now on another ebay auction.
Lets see how it works out.

Re: Help cleaning UF stone

If you flatten any ceramic stone, you will "re-grade" it to a lower grit if you use a coarser grit stone to flatten it. that's a good point. The ultrafine starts as a fine abd gets tumbled to be an ultrafine. In the inside it's a fine stone. According the manual it does not wear and is harder than ...

Re: Help cleaning UF stone

Ultrafine is 3 micron, I would guess 2400 grit I wash all sharpmaker rods with the dishwasher. Benchstone I did not yet but will also. I tried to flatten a cheap benchstone with an old tile - did not work and was soooo loud. I flattened it with a special flattening stone - it got ultra hard and slip...

Re: Paramilitary 2 Trainer

Bought a Yojimbo as it's the only compression lock trainer. Never handled the live version. To be honest the ergos are off for me. Spydiehole is not good accessible. Detent is too strong. Weight reduction holes in the blade are too big. I often catch a finger. In blade training with another person i...
