Re: Slipjoint mod Para 3

Very interesting design....have you done anything similar for liner lock designs? I'm guessing the technology would not be terribly different. In any case, awesome! I don't think a mod like this is possible on a liner lock. This mod fits into a cutout for the compression lock that doesn't exist on ...

Re: Am I paranoid about counterfeits?

A Böker employee recently confirmed that Amazon's warehouse just stocks all items together regardless if they are Amazon's stock or that of dealer a or dealer b. Even when you order from dealer a you might end up with a knife from Amazon or a knife from dealer b. As long as everybody sells legit kni...

Old "little white spider on black circle" letter logo - how long was it used?

Hello, I wonder how long the old "little white spider on black circle" logo was used on the "letters" that are included in the box when you buy a knife. Up until recently I thought that they changed the logo to the "big fat black spider without a circle" logo when they also changed to the red and bl...

Re: Uk Penknife Maxamet?

Gray FRN & Maxamet sounds good to me. If it's G10, then I hope it uses the current split spring NOT the older full length spring. There has been a lot of interest in bringing back a G10 version, but the older full length spring makes it very difficult to change the clip and/or reassemble . I prefer...

Re: Knife laws in France, Italy and Spain

Just a SAK has prevented me from being allowed into historic buildings in France and Italy. Yes. Some sights have a pretty high "security" standard / have very strict security. That's why I hinted at the price. I personally "got rid" of a Victorinox Spartan during my last trip to France. It cost me...

Re: Knife laws in France, Italy and Spain

Peter, do you think if a tourist were using one of the locally-produced knives, such as a Spanish Navaja, or, a French Opinel, for say, picnic making, like sandwiches and bread and the like, they would not likely have a problem? In all of these countries it totally depends where you go. As soon as ...

Re: Selling knives

Anyone sell on Instagram? How? Facebook (technologically) isn't a good price for selling but Instagram has to be even shittier. AFAIK all you can do is post so most of the time only your followers will see that you want to sell a knfie. Don't think that will work to well for guys (like me) with few...

Re: G10 UKPK officially makes a return! Heinnie Haynes Exclusive

I just wanted to ask them for a tracking number but then found out that the "Standard Shipping" for £6 indeed doesn't have tracking. Only the £29 "Next Working Day Delivery" option - and I was to cheap for that. However, once you switch the currency to Euro you will get an other EU shipping method: ...

When you order from Heinnie to an EU country and chose Standard Shipping you won't be able to track the parcel, right?

Are there any pictures of the back / spring? I'd like to know if it has a short spring as the lightweights UKPKs or a full spring that reaches all the way to the fourth screw...

Re: Fairly comprehensive list of Spyderos in movies, tv shows, etc

I just watched S4E8 of Quantum Leap and I am not sure if the knife really is a "Leap Pro-Grip Pro-Venator Delica" as it is stated under "Unconfirmed TV Show Sightings" in the original post. Maybe some of you pros can id the knife? I made some screeenshots from the DVD. Sadly the handle is hardly eve...

Re: Are there two hand opening locking knives by Spyderco?

Why did this turn into such a political/knife laws thread? It would just be nice to have a knife that locks, and doesn't have a Spyderco hole opener. I have to agree. Just an ordinary two hand opening locking knife would be nice. IMO no special treatment is needed. For me it would be absolutely suf...

Re: Are there two hand opening locking knives by Spyderco?

The German BKA defined the Griploc as a locking knife (due to the easily one handed accessible locking lever at the back of the knife). The BKA just stated that it is a one hand opening locking knife without going into detail. The VG Wiesbaden however (who asked the BKA for their opinion in the fir...

Re: Are there two hand opening locking knives by Spyderco?

Hi NicoColt, FC Sniper, Welcome to our forum. I spent a fair amount of time on the German knife forum trying to come up with a THO locking folder. We could not come up with anything that the forumites there were satisfied with. 1. Any locking knife can be "Spydie dropped" if the blade is exposed en...

Re: Are there two hand opening locking knives by Spyderco?

nail nick or not, OHO or not, most countries have restrictive blade lengths in the same ballpark, [...] Germany is 8 cm (3.15 in) max same as Hungary, [...] Denmark has forbidden any locking knives on your person in public spaces, like Finland or France [...] Those two are wrong. 1. Germany only ha...
