Re: Forum search turned up nothing: How do you lubricate the washers on Manix 2 LW?

Lube makes the action worse on all my PM2s/Para 3s. I assume the manix would be the same.

Re: Its a new "Golden Age"

Cheers to Spyderco. I've only been in the knife game a handful of years now, but i don't think I would have fallen in love with this hobby if Spyderco didn't exist.

Re: CPM SPY27 | Edge Performance

For the first time ever, my SPY27 factory edge was just too good to sharpen. I also have been on a bit of a binge lately, and have a number of new knives that REQUIRE sharpening. So im carrying my Para 3 LW everyday until i wear down the edge somewhat. Very excited to take it for a whirl soon.

Re: CPM SPY27 | Edge Performance

I just purchased a S30V Para 3 in G10 to do a side by side comparison with. It should allow us to see what Spy27 offers with more context. Thanks for doing this. I appreciate eliminating all the variables possible... knife/geometry/sharpening, current version, etc. Thank you, I picked up an S45vn P...

Re: HRC Database

per Shawn....Para 3 SPY27 62 HRC https://youtu.be/8mOpYQPICRg Anyone on the fence about SPY27 can get off the fence now. This is going to be some good stuff. SPY27 is to s30v what REX45 is to M4. Lower carbide volume, but higher hardness for equal or better wear resistance. Lower carbide volume and...

Re: First Impressions of SPY27 Steel

Also, let me just say, the Para 3 LW platform, the way it has been designed and executed, is a spectacular knife. Feels like a feather in hand, but doesn't feel cheap in the slightest. The action and lock up is so crisp and smooth. Beautiful work.

Re: First Impressions of SPY27 Steel

62 hrc is phenomenal! Best case scenario. Looks like Spyderco really stepped up and nailed this one out of the park.

I got mine today, was planning on taking it straight to the stones, but the factory edge is insane. So I'll put a little use on it before i go and grind that bad boy away.

Re: Thumb ramps...I like ‘em

To me, most thumb ramps are design sacrifices to accommodate the SpydieHole opening mechanism. Usually it's a worthwhile accommodation. I say sacrifice because i think the ergonomics usually come up a little wanting. Not enough room between the place your index finger finger goes and the thumb ramp....

Re: Para3 - CPM-SPY27 now shipping!

My preorder from knifecenter is shipping today, very excited. Can't wait to get this steel on the stones. I have a feeling it's going to sharpen really well. Slightly lower carbide volume than s35vn, with added cobalt and nitrogen? Lots of potential. Those of you that pre-ordered from KC, did you h...

Yes! I'd really like to see the Street Beat and Street Bowie in 4v!
I think it would be great on pretty much any knife outside of a dedicated waterman's knife.

It has enough edge stability, wear resistance, and toughness to satisfy most intended uses.

Re: Performance Rankings: Knife Steels

Edc attribute ranking:

1 Edge Stability/Strength- Resistance to chipping AND rolling
2 Wear Resistance
3 Toughness
4 Corrosion Resistance

That is how i weight my EDC steels. That is why steels like Cruwear/REX45/K390 come out on top for me.

More 4v, 4pleaze!

Man we need some more offerings in 4v in the worst way. I've yet to get my hands on any, and all reports indicate Spyderco's 4v is out of this world. It's like Cruwear but with even greater strength and edge stability, increased wear resistance, with slightly less toughness. It's like REX45, but wit...
