Re: Still using DLC?

If they are putting dlc on the liners now that's pretty cool. Thanks for the scoop It’ll be interesting to see a DLC Para 3 (or a PM2) with black liners. I haven’t been able to find any images on the knife sites I shop at. The only DLC compression lock knife with blackened liners I’ve been aware of...

Re: Still using DLC?

When you say CQI'd para 3 are you talking about when they added a slanted notch on the tang for better lockup or something else?

Still using DLC?

Hey guys and gals, I got one of the new CQI'd Para 3's a few days ago and I was just wondering if anyone knows whether Spyderco is still using DLC to coat their black blades or if they're using something else now. The reason I ask is that I can't find a single retailer or piece of literature that sa...

Re: What Spyderco did you get for Christmas?

Well, I bought it for myself, does that count? I finally got my hands on a brand new CQI'd Para 3 with the "black" S30V blade. I have a worker PM2 in the same configuration but sometimes the PM2 is just a tad too big. All of my Para 3s are basically safe queens so I decided it was time to get one th...

Re: Base model Para 3 w/ DLC

I think the DLC Para 3 (in both black & digi-camo G10) is in the middle of getting a product refresh/CQI (Constant Quality Improvement) update. You should be able to find an old one online if you look hard enough, but if I were you, I'd just wait for the new CQI version to find its way to your favo...

Base model Para 3 w/ DLC

So, I'm a collector of the military series (more specifically the PM2 and the Para 3) and over the years I've put off purchasing the base model Para 3 with DLC because I figured since it was a base model, production knife that it would always be available therefore the sprints and exclusives were a ...

Re: What Spyderco is in your pocket today??

My trusty user PM2 in S30V and DLC coating, which still hasn't even gained a scratch in the 3 years I've had it. Can't say the same about the screws :spyder:

Re: Centering the blade of a PM2

Yeah, that's where I'm at, idk what could have happened to cause this issue 2 runs (maybe more?) in a row. Sometimes mine is so bad that it scrapes the scales on the clip side and that's beyond cosmetic. That's a serious issue in my book.... I'm not even sure what to do with it. I've taken it apart...

Re: What Spyderco is in your pocket today??

Para 3 with Maxemet blade steel. A real slicer for sure. Then a base model PM2 in DLC'd S30V. Ya know, so my Maxemet Para 3 doesn't get messed up lol :spyder:

Re: Centering the blade of a PM2

So I was just looking at my pm2 maxamet, which was from the run before this one. My blade is slightly warped but its hard to notice and I can live with it. But my knife also had the worst looking edge bevel (on the show side) of any spyderco I have received. Of the few stonewashed spydies I have, m...

What's the date code on the box? I'm curious to know whether it's current/recent production or more like 2017-2018.
JT so 10/20

Re: Centering the blade of a PM2

In my experience it's been the body screw that effects centering the most. The first run of Maxamet PM2s had an obvious warp to it. I have one of them... Are you sure it's a centering issue and not a warped blade? The Maxamet PM2 has been seen with warped blades in the past. Yup... It's warped alri...

Centering the blade of a PM2

I know this has probably been addressed multiple times but one of my PM2's (my Maxemet variation) blades is very noticeably off center and I've watched youtube video after video explaining different techniques to center the blade on a PM2 specifically and I just cannot get the durn thing centered fo...

Re: What "Other" is in your pocket???

Knife-wise I carry strictly Spyderco so that question is N/A in my circumstsnces but one "Other Other" thing that's always in that tiny little pocket in the right hand pocket of my jeans is my Suorin Air liquid vaporizer. Just like a Spydie, I don't (can't) go anywhere without it. Also, like a Spydi...

Re: Lc200N PM2 and Para 3

It's certainly been covered. But not enough. I'd snatch up an lc200n para 3 in g10 or frn in an instant. As for pm2, I think the caribbean sorta covers that size range, but I suppose if the para 3 got a salt (at least the g10 model) then the pm2 would likely follow. ... I’m not opposed to a Para 3 ...
