Re: Anyone else Aeropress coffee?

I have too many coffee makers (french press, nespresso machine, regular espresso machine, bonavita drip coffee maker, percolator, Hario pour over), but I have almost bought the AP several times. Might have to bite the bullet and snag one.

Melitta makes a ceramic version of their pourover cone JD.

Re: Fake Dragonfly 2 ?

His other auction is fishy, says his PM2 came with green scales and he swapped them to camo. I'm not aware of a green s30v PM2 ever existing. The box indicates a black PM2, either way, I'd avoid this seller.

Re: Siren in the dish washer?

I hand wash the utensils that I use for food prep and they are always clean when I finish. If you feel your hand washing is substandard enough that you don't think the knife is clean when you're done, I guess you could dishwasher it. I just haven't met the crud that couldn't be defeated with dish so...

Re: A study in modern miniaturization

Welcome aboard!

Unfortunately, I think the knife is much too thin to accommodate that lock.

Re: Got first Spyderco, somewhat disappointed...

As others said, do not take it apart. It should be smooth, return it to whoever you bought from. The Native 5 is one of the best, most refined backlocks available.

Re: Performance Rankings: Knife Steels

It is kinda a weird list, but I don’t think we need to alienate or ostracize; better if we could have profitable discussions and incorporate a new member into our forum. I'm all for productive conversation, but this OP is misleading and presents what seems to be mostly opinion based rankings that s...

I enjoy Larrin's scientific approach much more than compilations of hearsay, random suppositions and second hand data poorly strung together. Weird thread.

Re: Hey DLT Trading

What are you all doing with a Lil' Native to get all worked up about lock strength? I think any lock Spyderco puts on a knife is going to be strong enough for my uses.

Re: What's your Favorite Rex Sprint Run?

I've carried the Rex Para 3LW more than any other knife since I got it a few months ago. It's broken in nicely, and the action is almost as good as the G-10 model. Maybe 75%. The lighter weight and the deep carry wire clip are real nice for summer, I couldn't ask for a better knife. Until Sal & Eri...

Got mine the day after I ordered from NGK. Talk about service. I hope everyone can grab one and put it to use. Mine got a couple boxes to open today.

Re: Byrd with high-end steel

8Cr13 is closer to Aus-8 than 440c from what I recall. You've got to watch Chinese D2, there are budget brands using legit D2 and other things fraudulently labeled D2. Even different knives with the same brand name can test as real and fake. Heat treat is another concern. Luvthemknives on YouTube te...

Re: REX45 Lil' Native Alert Thread

If attention to detail and aesthetics (blade centering) and tactile feel (smooth lock) are inconsequential to you, then maybe you should stick to gas station knives. I worry about the small stuff, of course. In every aspect of my life. I’ll enjoy the 3 knives that I paid for, and will enjoy knowing...

On behalf of those still trying thanks for hoarding. :rolleyes: Is it just me or do the email stock notifications not actually work when you sign up with a vendor? I must be on half a dozen+ notification lists, but haven't got anything about the knife. Seems like I just get added to their email list...
