Re: REC PM2 CPM 10v Hardness

They probably left it at a coarser finish to save some $$$ on belts?

Re: Spyderco in use, review/feedback thread

Found this old comment about cruwear from Vivi I found cruwear rusted just as easily as K390 for me. Neither are as bad as 1095 or O1, but cruwear is a far, far cry from a typical stainless steel here. Agreed on sharpening. Cruwear sharpens fast and easy. While K390 takes a little more grinding due ...

Re: A11 and CPM 10 V

They are very similar. There are a few versions of A11, aside from the Micromelt A11, but they are all virtually identical. Unless someone does a cut test with these steels, it should all feel the same between 10V and A11. K390, which is supposed to be an "upgraded" A11, is the most different in co...

Re: Next Sprint Run? Old School Alloys are BEST!

Do they still even make 440v/s60v?
Bronze would definitely sharpen on a sharpmaker

Re: Micro Serrations

There is talk from Spyderco about a galvanic bonded "COATED" CBN benchstone that should be interesting for those that want to play with "microserrated" edges Much like the DMT stone, the abrasive grains are more exposed allowing them to cut deeper into the bevel and make a more aggressive finish. T...

Re: One of the best bargains of the 21 century?

How fragile are Manix tips? Obviously don't pry with them, but are they more durable than PM2/Military tips?

Re: Can't reassemble my brand new Tenacious

Blade partially open, loosen everything, get everything lined up again, then torque it down 1/4 turn at a time or something

Does the Para 3 have more belly than a delica, or is it just the way the blade drops?

Re: The best pocket knife ever

I originally got an urban because it was cheap on eBay, compliant to the whole NYC gravity law thing before it was changed, and short closed - it's a nice little nugget with a great handle and blade shape Haven't needed to adjust my pivot, so mine hasn't worn through the pivot hold yet Also, me pers...

Re: Are sprint runs too limited?

it's like playing whack a mole with multiple dealers I just hate how it's the only way to get certain steels, and a lot of them end up in flipper hands (you see them RIGHT after they ship on ebay and classifieds) Sure, I want the guys who post Manix/PM2/Shaman rainbows to have them, but it'd be nice...

Is the handle exactly the same as an Urban? Now I wished I picked one up when they were being blown out at knifeworks for $36

In a way, the contouring led the way for the Shaman

Re: Advice on delica/endura maintenance

It doesn't feel "flickable" because it hasn't fully dried yet - hit it with some compressed air or flick it as dry as you can and let time and oil do its work - taking it apart repeatedly is a nice way to wear the screws out -

Re: Biggest knife sins?

Pull through sharpeners, bench grinders, using them as screwdrivers/scrapers/prybars. With the exception of the TORMEK unit ( wet, water cooled grinder) nothing powered by electricity should ever be used on a knife.>> even a low quality knife deserves much better than that. How do you think these k...

Re: Biggest knife sins?

Taking a knife apart and trying to fix it yourself and then returning it when you can’t. If you put a torx driver to it then it belongs to you! I can't remember where I read it, but someone bought a knife, tried sharpening it with a pull through carbide sharpener, and when it didn't work, bragged a...
