Re: Sharpening Odd Things

Love the ideas from you guys. David, I only had to do the office, manual, long arm, scissors type paper cutter. Wasn't too hard because fortunately it was a really mild steel. I don't have darts, but that got me thinking about needles. I recommend sharping them. They are surprisingly dull. I too hav...

Re: Sharpening Odd Things

I too recently did a paper cutter for work, turned out good. I don't think I have done tweezers, but why not. I sharpen screwdrivers and wire cutters all the time. In regards to the nail cutters, I believe it was in the Sharp Maker instructions that to sharpen them you work outside surface with the ...

Re: Sharpening Odd Things

Oh and ditto to the crow bar. They are awesome when sharp. Though to not have any fancy Ti types. Just your Home Depot variety.

Sharpening Odd Things

And, now for something completely different, I sharpened a cheese shredder. The stamped steel implement never really did a good job of shredding stuff. Now, works like a champ!!

What's the strangest thing you have sharpened?

Re: Yojimassist Mod

Wow, some great feedback. I didn't know we had some many people modifying their knives in a similar way. I’ve never seen the Assist II before, pretty cool. So, last night (before I saw everyone’s posts) I did end up grinding the blade to a more acute angle. I really like it now; very pointy. The tip...

Re: Yojimassist Mod

Assimbo LOL

No the glass breaker is completely disabled with this grind. I should point out that this a a factory second knife without a glass breaker. I would not suggest anyone void their warranty with this mod.

Yojimassist Mod

Morning All, Here’s a quick post to share a mod I just made and to get some feedback. I call the below a Yojimassist and think that Mr. Janich should consider the Assist for his next modification. The knife has huge potential for defense and hard use. http://i271.photobucket.com/albums/jj160/mountai...

Re: The factory seconds have hit eBay

Spyderco made an interesting move for this year’s second sale. Prices were about double as they have been in previous years. This puts the price for a second at about what I believe is a reasonable price for a second quality knife (about 30% of MSRP) and I believe that this will cut down on the numb...

It's the 4th so I only carry Golden models. Today it's the Native 440V and the Para 2.

I need someone to cut a Native in half so I can see where I should add material. :P

Yeah, so the blade edge contacts the steel spring when it is closed.

Deacon, That’s my understanding as well for the blade kick. I wasn’t sure because of the wooden Dragonfly and the Spyder Wrench, pic below. http://i271.photobucket.com/albums/jj160/mountainmanjim/Wrench1_zps8bab7125.jpg But, the Delica certainly hits on the little kick on the blade, pic below. http:...

JD, My thought with SE edge is that wear from hitting the spring would be limited to the points of the SE edge. With the PE edge, I end up with a much larger dulled area. By the way, in checking the completed listing on the Bay, there were a number of 440V Natives that sold for a reasonable price. I...

Deacon : What’s your understanding of which part of the blade is used as the kick? Reviewing my pictures again, it looks like I added the epoxy to the wrong part of the blade. Upon further review, the worn part the blade is actually where the lock bar’s follower starts to ramp up the blade’s cam. I ...
