Re: Note to self - only let the GF carry stainless knives...

Brake cleaner works pretty well for me. Brake cleaner is way harsh! A stone and denatured alcohol should handle the adhesive. A stone is less harsh than brake cleaner??? I must be missing something??? :confused: The next time I need to sharpen or reprofile a knife i'll try some brake cleaner. 🤣 Tha...

Re: Note to self - only let the GF carry stainless knives...

Because she just put my 940 through the wash. Thank god it’s in 20cv 😂 Slightly bitter that even my washing machine couldn’t remove the cardboard box adhesive I’ve been struggling to get off...

Byrd Rescue 2. Pry open a paint can (or d*** near anything) without worry. What a work knife. Stout sheepsfoot sabre grind. Strong design, cheap, reliable, great performer (spyderedge).
I was going to say get a Byrd so you can replace it for less than the cost of a Lynch pocket clip.

Haha! Reminds me of the Chevy Nova. It didn’t sell well in Mexico, who would buy a car that no va, “doesn’t go?” I've been told the Mitsubishi Pajero was originally named Pendejo by some unfortunate Japanese :) Sounds a bit far fetched i think, and i hope they didn't get so far as to actually deliv...

Re: Para3 LW in m390.. First LW exclusive

Man this one really caught my eye but I have a gray g10 cruwear para3 that rarely sees pocket time. How does the lightweight compare to the g10 models? I find the cruwear para3 loosing out to a lw chaparral, small sebenza, or spydiechef a most days... you could sell me your cruwear P3 and then buy ...

Re: What did you use your Spyderco for last?

Ouch!! ^^^ Yeah! I was using a paper towel soaked in denatured alcohol. Didn’t know it was happening until I got deep enough that the nerve and/or the alcohol lit me up! Then I treated the cut with liquid bandage, was worse than the cut!! :eek: I’ve seen enough nonsense at public ranges I don’t go ...

Re: Names of certain models - do they have any impact (on perception, sales, associations..);which names "fit" which don

I don’t care for the “police” name at all. Not particularly fond of the “military” name, but since the para military 2 and para 3 seem to get shortened to pm2 and pm3/p3 often I don’t have any negative associations. Urban... I like the knife not the name. I understand why it was so named, but at the...

Re: Spyderco Rescue 3 mod

Am I the only one who is deeply bothered when the serration pattern doesn't start and end with a large scallop? Man that absolutely drives me crazy. On this knife it's actually worse than that; the edge ends only halfway on a small scallop. If you want to cut with the very tip you can push or pull....

Re: S30V, VG-10; But If I Had A Choice???

It is easier to to sharpen and just as corrosion resistant if not more. Holds a truly sharp edge longer and well golly gosh darn I hope Spyderco will drop the steel craze a bit as they are all over the map with different steels and give us some 440C. I am on board to buy some let’s return to yester...

I remember Sal saying something about carrying some of these on him to give away to first responders he may come across on a day to day basis.
That’s awesome.

Like someone said above, would be nice to have one for first responders, specifically EMT / Fire.

Re: S30V, VG-10; But If I Had A Choice???

The only Spyderco I’ve bought in s30v was the teal dragonfly to put away for one of my daughters. I bought it for the color, in spite of the steel, because they love teal. The only other knife I own in s30v is a Benchmade Snody 210, a neck knife sized fixed blade. It was my sharpening nemesis, and I...
