Re: This is devotion...

Cathartt work pants have plenty of deep pockets and a fabric that seems very durable. I only have one pair but so far so good. The pockets are deep enough for a Millie no problem. I suspect that G10 would shred anything given enough use. I sand my G10 lightly to prevent excessive fabric wear when I ...

Re: 2020 Spyderco Factory Seconds Sale

Only time I went there was snow on the ground outside and it was around (just below) freezing and at least 80° inside. I stood in line for hours outside. Then again inside for maybe an hour. Totally worth it. I think the way they’re doing it this year could be the future. I would prefer this format....

Re: I Have a Problem

My first Spydie was a Manix 2 LW with the blue FRCP scales. Many knives later I haven’t bought one since a Smock last year, but that’s the longest period of time without a Spydie purchase in years. I think there’s a Shaman in my future. However there’s a Michael Walker I am looking for too! I too ha...

Re: Let's talk pocket wear...

My first thought is a thin leather flap that would fold over and fasten to the part of the pocket normally clipped to. It has to withstand washing. Could be a useful aftermarket accessory? It mist be thin enough not to make clipping difficult. sal If that piece of leather were held tightly in place...

Re: ZDP-189 stain removal

I heartily endorse the above suggestion. I don’t have any Flitz but “Bar-Keepers Friend” I got and it works great.

Re: Proposal for next SpyderByte: Road to a Collaboration Knife

I would like to hear from the designer and from Spyderco especially Kevin Smock and Ed Schempp. Hearing both perspectives would be the most interesting to me. I’m sure there is some give and take though I have the impression that Spyderco strives to implement the design as faithfully as possible. Pe...

Re: Are sprint runs too small?

I’m satisfied that my concerns about this topic are being addressed by Spyderco after reading sal’s comments. Namely larger numbers of the Sprint runs. The exclusives are what they are. I’m sure those selling exclusives have a good idea what their market is and those numbers are between them and Spy...

Re: Crucible 60 NiTiNOL

Nitinol has some very special properties. Including changing shape when reheated. Even at temps as low as 98°. That’s why it’s used in cardiac stents. Might be a problem in a knife blade? Search Wikipedia for more info. (Sorry I couldn’t figure how to paste a link)

Re: Lil Manix

I have 2 Manixes a LW and a second that had the swirly brown and black slabs with a big void in them that I swapped some aluminum scales onto. Neither was especially stiff at any time that I recall. Certainly the scale swap one was never difficult to operate. That said I would love a mini with a wir...

Re: lockstick - my thoughts and your facts or theories

Has anyone tried voiding there warranty by disassembling their knife and polishing the lockface? That seems like it would work. ( I’m joking ). If you do have lockstick can you send it to Spyderco?

Re: Maxamet: Odd behavior. Ideas? Sal?

Can you obtain another piece of the material? You could cut it and see if you have similar marks on the bevel. If you do then they should come off by cleaning or wiping on a rag.
