Re: Try this at home. New sharpening method.

This does not work with Serratas, as these pesky micro serrations will not allow themselves be smoothed off on the one side... :D :cool: :rolleyes:

BTW...I applaud the efforts taken by all folk looking for something new in edge reforming, and as Sal said...
Share the info! :)

Re: Thoughts on this police knife

Sal really needs to see if this is a prototype Police or not. The scales and blade appear to be a laminated steel, if my monitor is accurate? This would be a red flag alone. The clip is strange, and the pivot is a removable one... I am thinking that it might be a "liberated" proto that Sal might be ...

Re: Why are so many people concerned with perfect blade centering?

I have a Serrata that came out of the mold slightly bent, and lots of grinding the blade made the blade look straight on the spine, but off centre at the edge nearest the ricasso. the thickness is around 3mm, versus 5mm of the "normal" ones... I called it "Rhomboid"... It is mine, and the slight til...

Re: Hawkbill blade in Delica 4 handle?

Any folder can have a custom hawk blade fitted, but it will not always cut right. The pull stroke for the blade is desirable, and most times the blade will still be a hawk, but just an arc that aligns with the previous blade's tip and ricasso. I have designed around 18 ( I think ) hawkbills for exis...

Re: Machete by Spyderco?

Realistically, Spyderco will never make a Machete, or even a full size kukhri. I had made a few kukhris for Sal's perusal and evaluation, but I decided not to submit them, as the cost to the end line user would be prohibitive. There are westernised versions of the kukhri, and mine would fall into th...

Re: Which fixed blade would you like to see in K390 first?

The smaller thinner etc was a one version called the Pug. Various profiles for different folk. The one I made for you Sal, was my own Butterscotch G10, and 12C27 steel, 4mm thin at the spine, flat grind...Kydex sheath. I chose the name Serval, a wild cat from Africa.

A thinner Serrata would be good.

Re: Seconds Sale, what are you hoping to snag?

TenGrainBread Methinks Seconds Sales are for one time period, once a year, and that makes perfect sense. Mayhem would ensue if any folk walked in any time of the year and asked for Factory Seconds. Seconds Sales are/is a unique idea, as Spyderco would be selling everything at a loss. BUT is gives fo...

Re: Seconds Sale, what are you hoping to snag?

I was hoping to get a single coffee cup, but the shipping would have nullified the deal.

As my son lives in LA, I might just one day get to Golden in the distant future... :)

As a resident of the Far far South, I am happy that possibilities have opened.

Shipping is going to be an issue, I think?

Yup, there will be hordes, and i wish patience and tolerence to all at Spyderco in their dealings with us. :)

Re: Help me clean my 20 year old Walker

Disc brake cleaner in a spray can works the best for me.
Spray it everywhere in and outside the knife.
Let dry, and oil the joint.
