I kinda wish Spyderco would make the standard color white or very pale gray on all FRN handle knives so we could just Rit dye them whatever color we want.
I’d hate to have to dye my scales every time they got all scratched up and the white/light gray started poking through.

Re: What's your 2 knife EDC system?

I keep a Swiss Army Compact with titanium scales on my at all times (unless I’m in the woods, in which case I carry a walnut Huntsman) along with my standard knife (a titanium Chaparral today). The SAK gives me access to a decently sized backup blade, a corkscrew, scissors, bottle opener, tweezers, ...

Re: G10 Delica/Endura in Super Gold

Other than the MAssdrop Delica & Endura; which other Spyderco knives have been offered in SG2 steel? CG AFAIK, this run of the D4 and E4 are the only offered models in SG2. There was a discrepancy in funding the source of raw steel needed for the original idea of a G-10 sprint in SG-2, so the produ...

Re: G10 Delica/Endura in Super Gold

Trust me when I say that the regular Massdrop customer reps don't know jack. Refer to my post on the previous page. I received a similar response when I asked if they were going to have a second drop. I escalated it to a supervisor when I got the B.S. runaround response and then got tired of waitin...

Re: G10 Delica/Endura in Super Gold

Regrettably, I do not have the technical information regarding the amount of the Super Gold Steel Watches that we have sold. Although, this is a popular drop and th...

Re: G10 Delica/Endura in Super Gold

It now shows they have sold more than 1000. I have sent an email to Massdrop for clarification. It's because there were SEVERAL people that cancelled during the year long wait (completely understandable in my opinion), and those people are still being counted in the sales number on the page. I got ...

Only 18 Delicas left of the run of 1000 as of now! I think people who miss out on this are going to really be kicking themselves. It's beautifully done.

Re: Massdrop SG2 Delica...arrived!!

I think you'd probably have trouble matching the gold exactly, but you might be able to find some TiCN coated screws with a matching tint. I'm interested enough to check it out, actually. I think you’re probably right. I’m going to do some hunting on the ‘bay and a couple other places to see what I...

For those of you with these in hand...

How do you think black G10 and bronze Ti hardware would look? Is the "gold" too gold to match to bronze?

Re: Why the "Restricted Models" section?

Yea... but depending on the size, assisted knives and gravity knives are legal in all states. Automatic knives are illegal in about 30 states regardless of size. Between pining over things I can’t have and watching the general forum blow up with knife politics over automatics, I think I’d rather th...

Re: Super Blue Calypso, Jr.

I just picked one up over the weekend, and I like it, however it has a bit of a hot~spot to say the least. It is where the top back of the blade meets the end of the lock bar, and is not at all flush, with the lock bar a good 1mm above the blade junction and FRN, leaving 2 very sharp corners that c...

Re: BladeHQ Exclusive Native 5 Linerless Natural G10 DLC CPM-M4

I purchased one, but after I received the confirmation email, I noticed that I was charged sales tax. I called the dealer and politely questioned this since I do not live in the state that the dealer is located in, nor have I been charged tax on previous purchases from the dealer.

Re: Doublestuff 2 - need a bigger one!

Hi Fixall, Thanx for the suggestion, but I don't think the sales would support the tooling cost for a new stone as you mention. I thought the new "2" version would serve better, but I also thought the Duckfoot would. sal I’m sure you’re probably right. I can’t imagine milling a groove into a sandwi...

Actually... Maybe something more like this so you still have the both edges of the Medium and CBN stone to work with. https://i.imgur.com/kKYtVJB.jpg I wanted to say that I think this idea is excellent. I don’t need the portability personally, but this would make a great “all in one” for any beginn...

Re: Delica FRN to micarta

you shouldn't have any issues at all. I did a Delica swap from FRN to custom G10 just a while ago and it went as smooth as can be. Same with the Para 3 G10 to micarta swap I did a few months ago. If you haven't disassembled a Delica before, I'd watch a video on it as the backspring can be slightly t...
