Re: Community Sharpening Journal

I'm thinking of getting this stone to be my reprofiling stone... I don't have that stone but I have the DMT D8C (the 8" coarse uninterrupted surface stone), and I wouldn't recommend it for reprofiling. It's good for putting a toothy edge on hard steels, but it would be relatively slow for reprofili...

Re: KC Exclusive Shaman Rosewood REX 45

I just had to . . . . A different approach: https://i.imgur.com/PFqjouB.jpg Aftermarket black micarta scales from RC Bladeworks. They're close but not quite as perfect as the Spyderco micarta scales. In particular the contouring on the edges of the scales is flat and not rounded like the Cruwear mi...

Re: Reveal 4 Live!

Excellent stuff here, very impressive! As early as this morning I was sure I didn't need another knife... I found it interesting that the Rex 45 Manix 2 G10 and Manix 2 LW sprints appear to have different blades. From seeing all the blade swaps that have been performed between G10 and LW models (e.g...

I hope this release is a success so that Spyderco might consider being more open to releasing new scale material.
Considering that the pre-order has already been closed (for now, it says 'additional quantities available soon'), I'd consider it more likely than not that these will be popular.

Re: Crazy Good Deals Part 2!!

Before the new year, a K390 PM2 was $185, and now it is $200. And whereas previously the $15 shipping charge was good fo...

Thanks. Great data. That’s a 20% increase in end-user pricing in just 3 years.
Similarly for the Delica (C11PBK):

Year: MSRP, MAP
2017: 114.95, 68.97
2018: 114.95, 74.72
2019: 120.00, 78.00

Re: Hardness vs Toughness vs Strength

Not a simple question and an online forum almost certainly will not give you a complete understanding of the topic, but a simple example of axial loading of a steel rod can help explain some of these concepts. Some terminology: Stress: force normalized by the cross-sectional area over which the forc...

Re: Sage 5 Lightweight

I looked at prices at BHQ, DLT and NGK, and it looks like these are being sold at 70% of MSRP. Is this particular to this model or is a MAP change on the way?

Re: Para3 LW in m390.. First LW exclusive

The price seems a bit inflated to me. If I'm going to pay that kind of change I at least want a G-10 handle or better. It's hard to reconcile the price of the Para 3 LW M390/red FRN exclusive at $130 against the price of the Manix 2 M390/brown G10 exclusive at $136. The Manix G10 is such a more sub...
