Also the glue on tape often causes cutting issues.

Ha! Something I’ve noticed in the past but never quite put two and two completely together. Thanks Sal!

Ordered within 30 seconds of the drop and already got a ship notice. They were gone 2 minutes in or less!
They sold out in the time it took me to complete my order, about 30 seconds. I wasn't sure my order would be filled but it was. They must have only had a few because that was fast!

Re: REX 45 Military In Stock!

Rex 45 selling like Fun-Dip at a little league game, and there sits the Knifeworks S90V framelock Military for virtually the same price. I swear I don’t understand what drives knife sales. Bright Colored G-10. Carbon fiber really doesn't do anything for me after seeing so much of it in the Automoti...

Re: REX 45 Military In Stock!

Ahhhhh. Mine too. I wish I knew that's how the SFO worked. Thanks for the share. Now we know in the future to get it where and when we can. I think there are still places online where it has yet to drop...?

Re: REX 45 Military In Stock!

I'm amazed too. I thought that the Mothership would have had a weeks worth at least. I've had really good luck with the last couple Esclusive Para 3s so I guess I can't be too bummed. Hopefully I'll be able to get one of the Blade HQ Millies when they drop.

Re: Spyderco Factory resharpening

I've gone out of my way to tell you all this to let you know that there are some of these so-called "stainless" steels that are extremely vulnerable to food acids as I found out the hard way :o :( Now I'm very prudent to see that all my blades get immediately washed after use>> I don't even care if...

Re: Spyderco Factory resharpening

Funny this topic popped up. I just grabbed a slightly abused Para 3 with an SE that has seen much better days and was thinking of sending it back to see if they could bring it back a little. Has anyone sent a worn SE back for love and if so how much of a difference did it make? Thanks! I dropped of...

Re: How much are you willing to spend on a Chinese made knife?

As tps3443 said, if it wasn’t for the Chinese Spyders I purchased first I probably wouldn’t have spent hundreds on the USA made spyders that I have. The prominent China on the blades kills me but the quality of my Tenatious, Persistence, and Ambitious is impressive. Before my Value folders the most ...

Re: REX 45 Military In Stock!

I was hoping this would go for sale on the Spyderco website but I guess it’s not happening.. I’ve asked a few times and they keep telling me they will. Fingers crossed because I’ve been holding off myself. Don't worry friends. I spoke with Jon at the sfo yesterday. He has them and says he should ha...

Re: China and tariffs

While 25% sounds huge it's only 25% on one small piece of the whole product when you think of all the labor shipping electricity etc. American made costs more because we have a great standard of living here. While I've just recently been bit by the Spyderco bug, I can't imagine this having nearly th...

Re: Cutlery Shoppe Para 3 exclusives

This is my first DLC knife can any of you tell me if this is normal after very little use? DLC is coming off stop pin already after 4 days. I was wondering if it came like this or not so that is mainly why I'm asking 3281536549926056618.jpg By far not the most knowledgeable here but if the DLC is a...

Re: Your Spyderco Thanksgiving EDC

Might seem too obvious but I’d say spidie chef or kapara. Back on Earth my Para 2 will have to do until I get one of the above or a Millie. Happy Thanksgiving!
