Re: I really want a Shaman in M4!

I’m no expert, but I read quite a bit/watch reviews from trusted sources. From what I have seen, Rex 45 is better than M4 in every regard (toughness/edge retention/corrosion resistance/hardness). Even side by side(actual usage) testing proves that it is far superior. Bonus is Rex 45 Shamans are chea...

Re: River's Edge PM2

Dang, I saw one pop up on eBay, checked the site, and gone. I don’t check their site often, and didn’t sign up for notifications. I usually am on top of it, but it seems I slept on this :(

Re: DLT Exclusive - Purple PM2 Cruwear

Just checked my email and I did receive an order confirmation, but the website never actually showed the order successfully completed. Error message every time I tried to finalize the order. Not a very reassuring experience. Sounds like a good problem to have, out of all the possibilities (I.e. not...

Re: Don’t lube your Southard!!

I’ve found too much lube (especially the thicker stuff) can cause the action to feel like it is gritty, even with washers.
In this case, just absorb some with paper or paper towel, and try flipping again. It’s definitely not smart to rinse, then go without applying more lubricant.

Re: Swayback Lookout Thread

These clips look excellent! That said, I don’t have as much of a problem with the stock clip as most seem to have. I’m just happy it is a standard screw pattern. I haven’t played around with it too much just yet, but with little to no use, mine has developed a locking issue. I can force the lock clo...

Re: DigDug72, thanks for the inspiration

Way to go, I like the look! Did you thin the scales? That was one of my biggest complaints with the Southard.
IMO, it looks a lot like a thinner Techno, which takes care of my biggest complaint about the Techno :P
Excellent job!

Re: What's Spyderco's Consensus Grail Knife?

Most people: Whats a Spyderco? People who at least know the brand: Wait arent they all made in Japan? People who like the brand but get all their info from youtube: Slysz Bowie People like us with a problem: Whatever is not already in the collection. ^^^Lol, spot on! I’d say the Slysz Bowie, or Spy...

Re: Hey Guys who makes the best Scales for a Shaman?

PM sent.

As far as aftermarket scales go, I prefer Fireside or SDK. RC Bladeworks is good, too. I tend to dislike RGT, but need to try them more since I have had varying results.

Re: Is SV30 Good for Cutting Coaxial Cables?

For your needs especially, it is impossible to beat the value that comes from the Native 5 LW sprint in Rex45. $112 and readily available!

Re: Pacific Salt on markdown

I have personally bought near 5 of them from eBay, all were 100% as expected. They had black blades, black handles, in PE, and all were 100% new/unused/authentic CQI models. To top it off, each were around $50-$60. They’re my go-to gift knife, since this is how I was first introduced to Spyderco. I ...

Re: Bladeops waved pm2 exclusive

I have to say I am more impressed than I thought I would be. It’s a neat idea, but I am mostly impressed with the different blade grind. It’s weird to see in person, after seeing so many (exclusively) clip point FFG PM2. It’s also a noticeably heavier blade, which changes things up as well. I will m...

Re: Benshot Lil Native Rocks glass

One interesting thing about the blade, is that it's nearly fully finished. It's ground almost completely, just missing an edge, it has all the typical laser markings including a date code, and the spine is even polished around the pivot. I'd be surprised if all that work was done to these blades ju...

I ordered some. That 2nd amendment glass is very cool, but you couldn’t brim it with bullets and expect it to be worth anywhere near something like this, not that anyone asked ;) I am stoked to get mine! Part of me wants to assemble lil native hardware onto it(while leaving it in the glass). Now wou...

Re: Endura Black Zome Glow in the Dark C10ZFPGITD

steelcity16, surely you didn't forget to ask for them DLC coated....did you? I know I’d go for one of those three, if they were dlc coated.
I’ll be more interested in the Delica. VG10 is fantastic, IMO. Boring, but excellent.

Re: St. Nick's 4v pm2!

That’s what I’m worried about :/ as I’m sure everyone else is as well. Hopefully the bigger sized run will make this more attainable. I was all about this idea, but if I miss out, I’ll be happy with the past St. Nick’s exclusives that I have been lucky enough to own.

Gotcha, that’s another thing. It is sweet. I love the DLC everywhere! I’m not a black/red type of guy, but I’m all about these St. Nick’s exclusives. No way I can bring myself to use them, though. I have plenty of similar users that take the abuse.

Re: SNK Manix 2 4V Coming....

Carrying it every day is one thing, but have you seen a Province? The Manix 2 could be replaced by the Para 3 or Shaman in 4V just fine, and then you’d have a Province.
