Re: Custom Red / Crimson Scales Where to Find?

The pictures you included have factory digicam scales that have been Rit dyed to red. The DLT exclusives have solid red G10 from the factory. If you want one like in the photos you attached, get a standard S30V digicam model and a bottle of red Rit dye.

Re: is this delica real

Delica fakes are particularly close in appearance to the real thing, but you can still spot them easily if you know what to look for. On a real Delica, the outer edge of the oval and the inner edge of the handle outline are extremely crisp, and appear to have a slight amount of mold flash. On the fa...

Re: is this delica real

It appears to be a fake. The FRN molding is not crisp enough. This is especially easy to spot around the edge of the oval.

Re: Spyderco Buying Guide article?

It's basically a clickbait form letter with the word Spyderco plugged into all of the <manufacturer> fields, mad libs style. It has nothing to do with Spyderco knives.

Re: SEKI-CITY JAPAN looks hand etched

If we’re looking at three different blades and the etching is the same, then I’m eating crow and agreeing with Darby and others that the etching is not enough to declare a counterfeit. Yes it's three different blades. From the top: the OP's Police, JuPaul's ZDP Delica and Sharp Guy's V-Toku2 Delica...

Re: SEKI-CITY JAPAN looks hand etched

It's definitely a known factory variation. Whatever method they're using to do that engraving, it's being done in a repeatable fashion. All of the little deviations appear to be substantially identical across multiple examples. I'd say it absolutely authenticates your Police. http://decadecounter.co...

Re: Benchmade Bailout - your thoughts?

What was he doing with it? Supersteel Steve did a lateral prying tip test into what looked like pine. I think he had the blade about a half inch into the wood. The handle broke at the forward edge of the diamond milling in the scales, and the blade picked up a permanent bend. The same test broke th...

Re: I Love Garage Sales

You have to go early before the dealers get there. Yup, you have to go early and on the first day. Customs vary from region to region, but around here Thursday is the first day of the garage sale weekend. Keep an eye on Craigslist, and organize the garage sales so you can go to as many of them as e...

I Love Garage Sales

I went to two garage sales yesterday, and had insane knife finds at both of them. At the first sale I spotted three old Case knives priced at $2-3 each, but then I noticed this completely unused Norman Levine custom slipjoint, with a big $2.00 price sticker... http://www.decadecounter.com/vta/misc/l...

Re: Pakistani knives sold as USA-made customs?

Even my wife who knows how I feel about knives abuses them like they are some garden utensil. I used to have my expensive chef knives in the kitchen but soon I realized that they need to be saved after what can only be called agaivated and habitual knife abuse. My wife is similar, so I've been relu...

Re: Pakistani knives sold as USA-made customs?

He's not just using weasel language to vaguely mislead people. I've talked to him at length in person, and if his knives are anything other than 100% hand-forged or hand-built by him from raw blade stock and handle materials, then his intention is to overtly defraud customers.

Pakistani knives sold as USA-made customs?

I'm looking for some help identifying some suspicious-looking knives. There's this guy who has started selling at various gun shows and flea markets in Ohio over the past year, offering a wide range of knives as his own "hand crafted knives made in the USA". I'm 99% sure that most or all of his kniv...

Re: Consumer vs Industry Standards for Spyderco?

Sal says this in part 1 of the BHQ Spyderco shop tour, just after the 11:00 mark. I believe he was referring to machining tolerances and other manufacturing/QC standards.

Re: Native Salt owners?

Another difference in the Salt is the handle and pivot screws. Usually, you would need a T6 for the handle screws and a T8 for the pivot (if memory serves). However, all of the Salt screws take a T8. The T8 handle screws are not unique to the Salt. I purchased a S110V lightweight (date code IR) fro...

Re: Native Salt owners?

My Native Salt isn't particularly stiff, but it does have some side-to-side play, and when I open it (left-handed) the ricasso rubs on the inside of the handle. The nub in front of the choil will also catch on the handle if there's any lateral pressure to that side while closing, like if I wheel the...
