Re: Spyderco coffee mug

go big or go home! Deneen Pottery. These two are the camper size - 14oz. https://i.imgur.com/XroRzEq.png https://i.imgur.com/tvfAsD5.jpg I'll second this and hope that Spyderco seriously considers having Deneen Pottery in St. Paul, Minnesota, produce these mugs. Made in the USA, by hand, ability to...

Re: What Spyderco is in your pocket today??

Old favorite here with me today: C41SBBK Native. Purchased this new in about 2007. Distinctly remember it was the first Spyderco I ever owned that had the bug logo etched onto the blade. Lots of changes to the Native since I bought this one, but I still prefer the old style. 8B19B626-1152-4ACD-85D0-...

Re: 701 Profile Stone Instructions - download here

Interesting you mention the 702 Profiles>> they are a smaller version of the 701 Profiles but extremely handy. I kept mine over the years and I do find uses for my 702 Profiles from time to time. I wish Spyderco would bring both of them back and with more grit selections. Years ago I had the good f...

Re: Spyderco coffee mug

We're working on two. The first one will be very much like the original 12 oz coffee mugs we made years ago. The second one is an oddball and I can't say anything about it. Both will more than likely be consumer direct to keep the cost down. Then we'll go from there. sal Need to make one that is a ...

There's the "compendium" thread that I think is on the first page, lots of good sharpening info there.

My thoughts are pretty well summed up here.

Re: Finally!! The Portable Hand!

Rich: I will bet that you worked hard to track down these Portable Hands. As you know, they are a little hard to come by. I just found a post on another thread from back in 2008 and at that time I wrote that I had been looking for one for "quite some time". I still haven't found one, so the fact tha...

Re: Knife monogamy is a satisfying yet boring life

Once I learned about sharpening them and how to make them slice without snagging, it opened the door to a whole new world of performance that's way beyond anything I've experienced with PE At the risk of sounding totally incompetent, might you be able to point me to anything you have previously pos...

Re: Early Sharpmaker

CoPilot, I saw that sharpener on Ebay and was tempted to bid on it but I didn't know anything about how it worked, how complete it was, or how good it was at sharpening. I'd never seen anything like it before. So I didn't bid. To tell you the truth I'm a little embarassed that I didn't recognize wh...

Re: Finally!! The Portable Hand!

Thanks Rich!

Some good close up detail pics of the various components (clips, arms, etc) would be great, too. I'd love to understand how those circlips function. Do they just hold the alligator clips to the rod arms?

Re: Do you always use grease on your knives or is something less viscous OK to?

Shades of the resurrection of the dead! This is a 6 year old thread. I guess it is still relevant. I have never, ever heard of oil ruining the brass on a knife. Blood, yes. Sweat, yes. Oil, never. There might be some oil out there that has additives that would react with the brass, but I do not kno...

Re: Spyderco C09 CoPilot Varieties

I talked earlier in this thread (see the fourth post on pg 1 with photographs illustrating the spring differences ) about the Spyderco's use of an "integral backspacer and lockspring" that occurred with the C09 CoPilot. Sal has referred to this integral unit as the "split spring". The integral backs...

Huge fan of The Far Side here. No other comic made me laugh like Gary Larson could. One of my good friends was a fellow Far Side fan and we used to talk about the comic all the time.

Re: Do you always use grease on your knives or is something

However one single drop of oil will destroy a classic slip joint with Brass liners when stored for long periods. I would say get all the oil off them and use nothing but Ren wax Can somebody explain the physics (or chemistry) of this statement for me? What is it in oil that is harmful to knives wit...

Re: Can anyone identify this model?

markhayesdesign:

Did you ever end up sending this in to Spyderco W&R? If so, what was the verdict?

Just curious. Sounds like possibly a broken or damaged lockspring or significant wear on the lock.

Here is another after-market custom-engraved brass-lined CoPilot. It is the work of gemstone artist John Bailey and was done in 2019. Here is the information on it from the artist's webpage. I believe it has been sold or is otherwise no longer available. I dug up the descrption from a cached version...

Thank you, Sal.

I checked the few Spyderco catalogs online and the 701 Profiles last appeared in the 2011 catalog and were absent from the 2012 catalog onward.
