Re: Simple Endura Mod

Great mod, Dan. I always liked the Stretch handle better than the Endura for this reason. Swell over points, all day every day. I took the jimping off of the handle of my Manix 2 LW with just a bit of sandpaper wrapped around a drill bit (didn't have a power sander at the time). Much more comfortab...

Re: Simple Endura Mod

I've been doing this "mod" to my Enduras, and Delicas for years. To me, it greatly improves the "in hand feel/use" of the knife, having a more neutral handle shape (i.e. without the bumps). Though, I just use a bit of sand paper when I do it. ETA: I'm fine with doing this "mod" myself, personally. O...

Re: All Time Great Spyderco Full SE models?

Of the many Spydies I have, and have tried, one of my absolute favorites is the Stretch I (there are MANY Spydies I have not tried admittedly). I know too, that I am not the only fan of the Stretch I. So, I am surprised to see no one has listed it in this tread, as there was indeed a fully serrated ...

Re: Spyderco MSRP Increase for 2021?

Did the prices get bumped up again?? Last year (2020), I spent less money on, and bought less Spydercos because of the price increases. Who's loss?? Now here we are in 2021... did the prices get bumped up again?!?... I've always wondered too, How long ago did the knives that the prices got bumped up...

Re: Are you comfortable with VG-10 at 15dps?

Yes, quite happy, and comfortable with VG-10 @ 15° per side. I keep my knives (reprofiled) at ~11°- ~15° inclusive, with a BTE (behind the edge) thickness of anywhere from 0.012" to 0.005". I have numerous VG-10 knives (Delica 4s, Endura 4, and Stretch I's) that I keep "thin" like that - all are tru...

Again, I am not an expert here, BUT both of these look like fake PM2's.

'nother fake PM2

While I am sure not an expert, this one does seem to me to be a fake. The price, lack of jimping, screws, etc... Camo "PM2". Seller straight up calls it a Spyderco PM2. and this seller is state side, https://www.ebay.com/itm/Spyderco-Para-Military-2-G-10-Folding-Knife-Digital-Camo-cpm-s30v-knive/224...

fake PM2 with conflicting info

Clearly a counterfeit or fake orange handled PM2. The description says "Spyderco Paramilitary 2 stylle", and the description clearly states it IS NOT a Spyderco knife. The photos do show it as a Spyderco PM2, Golden Colorado USA Earth CPM-S30V... https://www.ebay.com/itm/Tactical-Folding-Knife-Spyde...

With a very crisp 400 grit edge on it, it effortlessly fell through that quite soft & ripe tomato, plus some cucumber, a lil'bit of onion, and that avocado too

Re: Report: Pacific Salt 2 blade swap

That looks fantastic Vivi! Seeing that thing at only 71 grams makes me hopeful that whenever the Delica sized one is released it'll be ≤ 56 grams. You can bet your bottom dollar I'll be getting one and promptly modding it into what I've been calling the "Hyker" mod for over a year or more now. u.w....
