D4...Bought it/sold it

Well, I went ahead and bought the Delica 4 over the internet. I was very impressed with this knife...EXCEPT..for the tip. Call me crazy, but I feel like Spyderco overcompensated for the 'delicate' tip of the Delica 3 and just made the tip on the D4 too blunt. I just don't think you need to sacrifice...

Looking for a decent small sharpening stone

Hi All,

I'm interested in a general purpose sharpening stone that I can throw in a backpack and will give me a good edge on my large folder when I'm out camping/hiking. Nothing too big or expensive. Suggestions?

Thanks!
Native :)

Will Spyderco repair horizontal play?

Hi All,

My FRN Native has a little horizontal play. I'm surprised, as this knife has not been used very much.

Will Spyderco adjust it for me under the warranty?

Thanks for all the great repiles!

Now to make things more complicated: How do you think the mini-manix fits into the equation??

...Oh, the reason I'm asking: I was looking for a good defensive/emergency spyderco and was going to buy a Yojimbo, but I now have the opportunity to buy a NEW full-size Persian for $60.00, which I've always liked, but not sure if it beats the Yojimbo in that role.

Hi All,

Given the choice beween these two, which would you rather have in a self-defense situation?

Any thoughts are welcome!

I prefer the Native I. The wire clip on the Native III doesn't allow my hand to be flush with the handle (suspends my index finger in air where it meets the clip). I can get a better grip on the Native I.

I prefer the Native I over the III because the wire clip on the III prevents my index finger from making full contact with the handle (finger is suspended in air where it meets the clip. On the Native I, The curved portion of the clip allows my finger to be flush with the handle...making a more secu...

Persian vs. Mini Manix for self defense?

Hi All,

What are your opinions about these two heavy-duty spydercos? What are the merits of each regarding self-defense/MBC applications?

Thanks!

LOL! Yea, my 'wish-list' grew after spending just a few minutes browsing through this forum.

So, you guys are gonna make hard on me and give the Para a boost, huh? Well, maybe I'll end up with both eventually ;)

Spyduch,
Why only fully-serrated knives?

Thanks for the warm welcome!

Mini Manix vs. Para Mil. Hmmmm...

Hi All!...1st post. Right now I'm trying to decide between the Mini Manix and the Para Military. It would be for occasional jeans-carry for colder days (no shorts) and outdoor activities (camping, hiking). Self-defense, if needed, is also a remote possibility. It will serve as a more heavy-duty alte...
