Re: Mule Team Survey

1) Did you purchase a Mule Team knife in the past? Yeah. https://i276.photobucket.com/albums/kk28/yablanowitz/Mules/IMG_20200325_122213442_zpsxv784awk.jpg 2) Did you put a handle on it? A couple of them. Mostly I just cord wrapped. 3) Did you make or buy a sheath? Made it custom to fit the ruler poc...

Re: Large slipjoint Spydie, anyone?

Name one lock that has no moving parts. Name one that doesn't require precise fit between moving parts to function correctly.

Re: Large slipjoint Spydie, anyone?

I'm still of the firm belief that having the lock there leads to careless handling, making it less safe instead of more safe. Locks are small bits of metal, designed and built by fallible people, which have to fit together just so in order to work. Any of them can fail at any time. The only real saf...

Re: Large slipjoint Spydie, anyone?

Hi Archangel, We have a prototype for a 3.5" blade UKPK that we call the CPK (Canadian Pen Knife - in house name). sal Hi Sal, With all due respect sir, I really am curious. What's the purpose of a slip joint folder that large? The same as any other blade that size. Some places have laws against ca...

Re: SHOT Show 2020 Videos and other info concerning new models

I think everyone's all juiced up on the tanto because it's something totally different from Spyderco. In actual use, it's not very useful. You really have to crank your wrist in uncomfortable way to utilize the tip to penetrate something , say cutting from above and pulling back. Just a different d...

Not unusual. The tighter you tie one, the stiffer and harder it is.

Re: So I stripped a pivot screw.

The spydiechef has a “faux” torx head on a female pivot. At least mine did. So if one was to try and disassemble the knife, they have to know to only turn the show side pivot. Lock side will not turn. Maybe cqi changed that recently though. I don't have a Spydiechef so I'm not familiar with those s...

Re: So I stripped a pivot screw.

Did you strip the threads or just round out the head? Disassembly doesn't automatically void the warranty, but warranty won't cover the damage you do trying to DIY. Clean soldering iron held to the head for a few seconds will break most threadlockers, boiling water won't get the job done.

Re: Sage 5.2

I might as well chime in here. I would buy a button lock Sage for use, whether it was a button Compression lock or a plunger lock. Integral comp lock would only get my money as a collector piece and would likely never see the light of day, much like my Sage 2. I dislike having moving parts in direct...

Semi-ambidextrous (clumsy with either hand).

There are also proprietary processes involved, so you aren't going to get to see everything without going to work there and being the guy in front of that camera.

Re: Sprints

Yes, there is a large difference, I think most people already knew that. You couldn't prove to me by anything I've read here in the last few years. They always seem to get lumped together, and called Sprints whether they are or not. Most of the gripes don't even apply to Sprints, just Exclusives.

Re: Sprints

I think there are a lot of people here who don't know the difference between a Sprint Run and an Exclusive. Many of the "it sold out before I could order one" whines are coming from Exclusives, and Spyderco has no control over those numbers other than saying "No, we won't do that for you" and losing...

I used to shave with one, and I would definitely pick one up from Spyderco even though I've worn a beard for thirty years or so. Let's see where this goes this time.

Re: Production LC200N

LC200N did not impress me in the Mules, certainly not enough to justify making it a primary production steel. But then, 1095 is corrosion resistant enough for me.
