Re: Are you done with 2019, Spydie wise? What do you wish for in 2020?

i WAS done having crafted 'my perfect edc' of a para3 cruwear modified with contoured scales and a wire clip added ( with a bolt thru the lanyard hole) so it behaves like the LW version BUT last night i pulled the trigger on an all black CE delica, very random as im not a back lock fan - yes im a fl...

Re: Discussion: What do you think is the best size for an EDC folder?

Delica was always my edc and before that was an SAK / Gerber multitool but like others have said, ego got in the way and i need to go as large/ chunky as i dare and ive got real used to the para3 now ...

Re: Spyderco 2019 Lists: Delivered & Upcoming

Just looks like a delica It’s far different than a Delica. They use a lot of similar footprints for their knives, but they strive for function over form. Take a look around, most of their in house designs use a similar format (some more so than others). For example; their UK Pen Knife is just a Cal...

Thanks everyone for the input, I figured I would try it on my least favorite scales- the smooth g10 and I can safely say I know love them! I set about trying to replicate the para3 LW and now it feels like I have wooden scales!!

Hated the smooth but wanted to experiment with contouring the edges to make them similar to the frn of the Para3 LW
OMG it’s completely changed the knife- yes it’s smooth but now ‘feels’ like a wooden scale and I’m in love- a complete 180 for me

Re: Show your mods!

has anyone created a 'plug' for the lanyard tube on a para3/pm2 that is threaded to accept a standard wire clip? this would make the model more in line with the lightweight but with the g10 construction? - ive seen titanium plugs but i dont fancy trying to drill and tap ti I tried the concept with a...

Wow that's a lot of work, I wish they would cqi this. I sold all 3 of my PM3s but I do want a lightweight with the wire clip and normal lanyard hole
I got the LW and put a cruwear blade in but still wish the g10 ones would be done better

Para 3 lanyard hole plug?

Has anyone thought about replacing the para3 lanyard tube with a solid plug- then drilling and tapping it to accept the single screw wire clip as per the lightweight? Wouldn’t this solve the common voiced issues with the design?
Are they commercially available? I see plenty of replacement ‘tubes’

Re: Blade swap, Para 3 LW

Just done a swap and put a cruwear blade into the LW, straight forward no hassles, much prefer the clip positioning etc, but we should have this set up in g10- maybe a para 3.1

Apologize for the crap pic
