Re: Production knife classics? (Modern)

Speaking of Gerber, one knife that should be mentioned is Gerber’s LST. It was the very first knife with a Zytel (FRN) handle and was linerless as well. It paved the way for all the FRN-handles knives that followed. Is it still in production? Jim Still in production, still made in the usa Gerber in...

Re: Any interest in a Spyderco utility knife (box cutter)

I'll take a blade in k390

I wish there was a box cutter with more blade exposure

Re: NEW: MGE Wholesale Teal Native5 Exclusive

S110v and S90v are super similar, right? Teal is a nice color for a socially acceptable knife

Re: Completely Forgotten Spyderco Models: Your Favorites?

Going through this http://www.spydiewiki.com/index.php?tit ... rco_C-SKUs is like going through Spyderco (centofante) memory lane

I had a herbst (german made) second and a fish mouse. The spin was also a cool tiny knife

Re: Production knife classics? (Modern)

also, why do you think they are classics?

The M16 is the first production flipper, but it's kinda crude and doesn't cut that well - and they still sell boat loads - it looks cool, though

Production knife classics? (Modern)

What production knives do you consider "classic" (stood the test of time)?
Benchmade has their griptilian, 94x series
CRKT has their M16, which still remains popular ages later (actually wish they'd make a nice one, that's not auto)

Re: Permanent damage that you've actually done to a knife?

Was that free hand or using a guided system?

Bill1170 - oof that's unfortunate - I lost some hand tools because aluminum thread tapping liquid spilled on a bunch of tools during a move and learned the hard way the stuff is corrosive. Silica gel is the way to go, damp rid is for rooms/vehicles

Re: DLT Exclusive Delica OD Green FRN and Coated Cruwear

In a delica platform, what are the advantages of this over k390?

Is this the steel I want if I carelessly smack the edge into a copper staple ?

Re: Permanent damage that you've actually done to a knife?

I guess if I chip or roll the edge, I get to get some sharpening practice in - now to choose a user knife nerdlock - how did you flatten out that part of your delica? Staying in one spot with some very coarse abrasives? Benchmade used M2 long before it was cool to use tool steels - I guess once M4 b...

Permanent damage that you've actually done to a knife?

So I had a "beater" knife I use for work and I'm not happy with it - and this made me think a. why am I bothering with a "beater" and b. has anyone actually permanently damaged a knife, short of prying with it? If yes, what were you doing with it? My main concern was that someone was going to borrow...

Re: Community Sharpening Journal

Today I finally got around to sharpening my 4v Native. I usually keep the factory angles for the first few sharpenings and then gradually work to a more acute angle but the factory grind was so uneven I decided to try using the Sharpmaker to take it to 15° dps. I started with the CBN rods and plann...

Re: S35vn on the Tenacious...what does it mean?

The tenacious is definitely a hit for spyderco - there's so many used one's for sale on ebay that are obviously not being sold by knife geeks, and they sell for only a few bucks less than a new one

I'm actually surprised it's the tenacious getting the upgrade, and not the polestar

Re: New Double Sided CBN Benchstone

I'm excited to see Spyderco get back to their "first we made things sharp" side

What would be a nice coarse diamond to complement this with? DMT XXC/XC or Aroma 140?
