Re: Best Handbag Folder for Wife?

After seeing knives appear thru the door for me, my wife asked me 'where's her's' so i set about going thru different lock types with her and sizes/ weights etc and after a while with each WE settled on an Urban - the ergo's fit her hand very well and allowed her multiple comfort grips. She loves th...

Ti UKPK Blade swap?

Im sure this has been covered considering the age of the model - would i be right if i said we arent able to do a blade swap on the ti model for the 110v a: due to different spring and b: blade thickness ? Ive just got my hands on the ti and i love the weight and feel etc - its a user so snail trail...

Re: The Michael Christy Way Of Sharpening

I just received my DMT DiaSharp extra coarse/coarse stone with the base and plan on using it the same way. I've been doing the same with my Sharpmaker stones the past year now as well. Better results in hand than using the Sharpmaker base itself. Muscle memory is real folks! If I do well with this ...

Re: PAR a 3 clip update

Hello guys/gals, I have a question that may have already been dealt with, but hoping someone can answer it for me. I am wondering if the new PARA3 models have the deep Carry pocket clip like the light weight para three models? I really like the PARA 3 and would probably buy several if they ride as ...

Re: Sharpening

I just can join the choir: Get a Sharpmaker! I am really not good at sharpening (and was even worse when I got my sharpmaker), but that device makes it easy for me! Imho a sharpmaker should be the "second Spyderco" to get for anyone who does not own a sufficient sharpening system already! There are...

As long as it will be DROP POINT BLADE I will accept any steel variant ... and to provoke a bit - leaf blade is boring. :p
To be honest I’d prefer if it was a straight spine blade like the para line but figure I can grind a leaf- the drop point is just weird looking!

Sal, maybe to make the steel purchase more viable each purchase is a set of 3 - a drop point, a leaf and a wharnie, maybe throw in a spydy edge not only do you have a steel testing format, you a blade shape t...
