Re: Left handed PM2

Personally I've been using the lock with my thumb and letting the finger choil hit my index finger. Then finish closing. That said I have to avoid the choiless designs as a result. Did play around with epoxying a tab or button and it worked pretty well for several months before it finally came off, ...

Re: Completely Forgotten Spyderco Models: Your Favorites?

Another plug for the Ocelot and the Navigator. I still have the Ocelot but gifted the Navigator to one of my daughter's years ago. I really liked that Ocelot model but there was one minor problem that never got fixed with the original OCELOT. Those "paw prints" on the handle/scales ( deep recessed ...

Re: Reveal 6 Live!

Pretty interested in the k390 endela, think it'll complement the police well.

The Colorado flag pm2 is...conflicting. But may just spring for it.

Re: New model ideas

Box cutter/utility knife. More as I'd be curious to see what a company that puts a good amount of thought into ergonomics would come up with.

Re: Byrd neck knife? ”Byrd Swick”?

Definitely looking forward to the swick as well. But something about the idea a byrd version could be called the swan (because you know, long neck...neck knife...right?) is humorous to me

Re: So... how is the spydiechef for lefties?

I had no problem flicking it open, or if I wanted I could push it partially open with my index and finish with my thumb.

If you could have a magic knife, would you rather?

Imagine if you could have a knife that could either be any steel/handle etc at a moment's notice, but only one design, *or* could change to any design instantly, but only one steel/handle choice, which would you pick?

Re: Best Pepper Spray for self-defense?

I agree it's a good option, consider the different trigger types too. The small pocket ones are usually a slide and press, with a few flip top and press options as well. If you ever have to spray it at someone or something, remember to move, if they don't stop immediately pretty good chance they're ...

Which models did you initially dislike but then came around?

Recently acquired a dodo. Pulled it out of the box, opened the blade, tried to close it....and kind of hated it. But decided to keep playing with it, and now I'm in between. I had the same experience with the sliverax and pm2. Pm2 I'm still in between, doesn't really do anything great for me. Sliver...

Re: Your TWO To Return In 2020

Phoenix, as originally was, or raffir noble (a brighter one than the chap has, maybe yellow or red tint) and a nice steel.
Any Ed Schempp design, which it seems a lot of people are coming to appreciate lately.

Tuff clip alternatives?

Picked up a Tuff recently, but it doesn't have a clip.

Does anyone know of an alternate clip or what size screws the tuff uses? The military clip pattern looks close, but I haven't been able to check yet.

I did email Spyderco but not optimistic on them having a clip laying around.

Re: Spyderco 2019 Reveal Volume 3 Per Knife Center

The stretch has a different edge shape than the pm2. The stretch's edge is straight until the last third or so when it becomes a fairly pronounced belly.

A pm2 edge is almost the other way, maybe an inch by the choil is straight, and the rest of your edge is curving into a slight belly.
