Re: Sal, with all the SE love of late

Apparently there are some floating around but I've never seen one for sale. I have seen photos though.

Re: Community Sharpening Journal

Ok. So I only live a mile from harbor freight. Went and picked one up, and reprofiled my Hap40 Endura. Pretty impressive for only $13.04 w/tax. A little smaller than I’m used to for a reprofiling stone. I use a Norton coarse crystolon 4”x11” usually. The 200# is extremely coarse. Couldn’t get a hai...

Re: What Spyderco is in your pocket today??

I had something very, very special happen today in my personal life, and it felt right carrying this knife for my first time :cool: https://i.postimg.cc/5tB9Z94L/20200930-171750-HDR.jpg It has one of the sharpest factory edges I've ever seen. Hair whittling sharp, pops off arm hairs without touching...

Re: Community Sharpening Journal

I've been raving about these stones for a while. I like them enough I just picked up another one. I needed to stop in Harbor Freight for some more hammock ropes. I'm going to use this one exclusively for sharpening, and the old one for reprofiling knives. If you get one I'd try to buy it in person. ...

Yet to have any K390, yet to have any kind of Green Manix (besides Putman micarta scales). I wouldn't be able to resist this, unless it was an LW.
If you or anyone else know where I can get green micarta scales for my m4 xl I'd appreciate a PM. Seems they're always out of stock!

Re: 100% of people agree on this one thing!

We need an OD green Manix 2 G10 with a sweet K390 blade. Also a LW, because we can't leave the LW crowd out. The ranger green is okay, but OD is more pleasing to my eyes. 99%. XL ;) Yes, an XL version would be great too. Now that BHQ has put out their exclusive M4 XL knives, maybe we will see more ...

Re: New Spyderco Knives: Reveal #6 in 2020 Coming Soon

Man, the Smallfly really talks to me... I wouldn´t say I am real good with balisongs, but I can do some tricks and moves and enjoy it. Now THIS one looks like a balisong that is a real, functional knife bladewise (most have more of a stout stabbing type blade, which is pretty silly and useless to m...

Re: Straight Spine Stretch XL FRN Color Poll

I've already said how much I like the Cruwear Delica color combo. That gets my vote. Now that you have said that, I might need to rethink this as I doubt Spyderco would do OD Green Cruwear TiCN (maybe Satin would be ok) since DLT likely has exclusive rights to that color combo in Cruwear across the...

Re: When to not sell

Sometimes this is a tricky thing to figure out. Sometimes its very easy. I recently sold off two Manix folders, the old C95 I bought off ebay and the XL in S30V I posted here for years. I decided as much as I liked the C95, the action on the one I got was a bit rough, I couldn't get it dialed in to ...

"Everything that we're doing in H1, we'll also be doing in LC200N as an offering." - Eric at 2:56 That's cool to hear! :D Wonder if that means we may actually see a FFG Aqua Salt someday? I'd buy a couple. The Aqua Salt is underrated in my opinion. It's a good knife. I like easy to sharpen fixed bl...

Re: Need advice! Freehand or Guided System

Anybody on here use 6”x 1” stones for freehand? what’s the best way to find the angle of your bevels? I've done most the knives I've posted on here on 6" DMT stones. I find 8" is a better size. If you look at my pictures closely, like my Siren after I reprofiled it, you'll see scratches near the ti...

Re: how are sales figures for the spyderco parata?

All the Japanese folders with G-10 are/were overpriced and there are now fewer and fewer as many have been discontinued. The Chinook4 with S30V and G-10 made in Japan is $241.50! I paid $127 for my Police 3 and that felt like a good value to me at the time. Still does. I love VG10 but paying $200+ ...
