Re: "Re-surface" Almite

Contact Josh over at Razor Edge knives. He could likely clean that blade up, and cerakote the handle, making it look like new.

Re: Bottom of pocket/clipless carry ?

Whenever I carry my Dragonfly or Co-Pilot, it's clipless in the bottom of my pocket. They're small enough that it's not a bother if they don't ride perfectly vertical.

Dang. I might just have to pick up one of those CE Enduras to go along with my Delica.

Re: Spydiechef Rusted After First Use

I'm voting for surface contamination on the blade itself, likely from the belt they used to grind the blade. Looking at my Salt 2, there's rust in the "1" of the H1 engraving, and I'm pretty certain it's due to contamination from what ever tool they use to mark the blade. When we first got some larg...

Re: SE performance is more than simply teeth vs no teeth.

It took me a couple decades, but I've finally started coming around on serrations. Like James, I prefer them a bit shallower, like the ones on the Delica Wharncliffe. I'm also finding serrations seem to perform even better after a few sharpening have rounded the points of the teeth a bit. They still...

Re: SE performance is more than simply teeth vs no teeth.

How do you take damage out of a SE edge? (Are the corners on a cbn rod usable?) I bought, tried sharpening, and then sold a knife because I could not get rid of the rolled serrations. I'm not Evil D, but I've had good luck restoring serrations by wrapping some wet/dry sandpaper around a wooden dowe...

Re: Police 4 LW

Was there ever an explanation as to why the LW/G10 have a different blade than the SSversions? The blade on the SS what originally drew me to the police. The SS ones aren't the Police 4. I believe they're technically the Police 2, though not the same as when they came out. That's probably why Spyde...

That Junction keeps tempting me. I have enough fixed blades in that size and role, but it looks too nice for $100 to not buy.....
I wish you'd buy it. As much as I'd like a fixed blade, I don't need to spend the money right now.

Re: Crazy deals @ Sierra and other places

Re: Which Steel In you’re experience is your favorite for Spydie Edges?

I voted for VG-10. I enjoy H1, but as some have said, it likes to burr up, especially on the plain edge section. I suspect its due to the chisel ground nature of the SE edges, but if I get a burr on the PE section, it's a bit stubborn to grind off. VG-10 in SE seems to be much more forgiving and jus...

Watching the video got me curious, so I decided to try something similar with a Dragonfly in VG-10. It...didn't work out so well. I used the extra coarse stone from a Worksharp guided bench stone set, and the edge got pretty torn up. I backed up to a well used DMT coarse, and that worked a little b...

Re: Shaving sharp off a reprofiling stone

Great job Vivi. Do you find you need to touch up the edge less often at such a coarse grit? I guess I would worry about wearing the blade out prematurely.

Re: A resurrected lower cost One-Eyed Jack, please

That A.T. Barr design and Spyderco’s execution is the thing. I like the file work a lot. Gives it special character and is the closest I will get to a custom folder in that regard. I think the white, contoured G10 suits the design perfectly and the inlays hold special meaning for me, so I like them...

Re: Is the Siren a Salt?

This is one of those knives I didn’t even know I needed until I saw it. I was actually contemplating picking up a Native Salt at some point, but now I might just have to wait until this one is released.

AFAIK, Spyderco has only used it in a 2014 PM2 and the Lionspy ?

Re: A resurrected lower cost One-Eyed Jack, please

I’d be in for one in plain Micarta, G-10, FRN, whatever. There’s just something about the design that speaks to me more than other knives in its size class. But, those scales just killed any interest I had in getting it.

Re: RIP Pacific Salt

I've lost my fair share of Spyderco's to the deep. It's never a good feeling, especially when it means you're going to be without a knife for a bit. I think those little floats you can attach to your keychain will work too. Most of them are good for a couple pounds, so they should have no problem ho...
