Re: M4 Shaman Exclusive

I picked up the exclusive DLT Paramilitary 2 that dropped at the same time as the Blade HQ Shaman. Had to move quickly, and rely on Chrome's excellent autofill feature, but I managed to pick up 2 of each. It's something I've been doing recently, as I like to put 1 knife in rotation and 1 in storage ...

Re: What Spyderco is in your pocket today??

Not in my pocket, in USPS boxes inbound to the office, but I'll have 2 x Paramiltary 2 in 20CV and 2 x Shaman in M4.

Before you ask, no I won't wear all 4 knives at the same time. 1 of each are going in storage.

Re: Paramilitary 2, a delicate knife?

Good Evening Spydermen and Women, Attached is a comment I ran into on a Facebook group earlier today, normally I brush off a little trash talk... but he happened to be talking about my favorite model. The biggest insult of all was referring to the pm2 as "pocket jewelry", the equivalent of "flowery...

Re: Red G10 20CV Manix 2 - DLT EXCLUSIVE

Customs by a South African maker by name of Trevor Burger.

The model is the LEXK (Large Excalibur). The blade is an unusual variation, they typically come with a drop/spearpoint.

Left one is on washers, right two are on ceramic IKBS.

All three are front flippers.

Re: Red G10 20CV Manix 2 - DLT EXCLUSIVE

I always buy 2 of something I'm interested in, one to carry, the other to keep (either to flip later, or as a collectible). This was no exception. I haven't carried it yet, because I don't have a deep carry clip for it. So it's sitting on my desk. The only recent notable exception to the "2 rule" is...

Re: Reputable Online Spyderco Dealers

DLT Trading is legit, their shipping is insanely fast. They also have a loyalty program (dangerous). Knifeworks is legit, they're very nice on the phone (they called me because I made a large first-time purchase from them and wanted to make sure I'm not a Nigerian prince). Blade HQ is legit, they pu...

Wrong critter, but licensed hole! I say it counts, and one of Benchmade’s finest as far as I’m concerned. I gave my D2 one to a good friend, I need to get another one of these days.
That's exactly right!

Re: Shipping of internal parts

This thread devolved into a name calling fest.

Did we reach any conclusion?

I still need two parts for my mangled Para3 (my fault, I'll pay for the parts & shipping, because I'm a dum dum).

Re: Spyderco and law enforcement personnel

There is also a sort or urban legend or mythos that if you're a cop or military person that you know a lot about guns or knives. If you took a random sample of police vs the general public you certainly would have more knife/gun folks in the mix but for many of them its a tool for the job that they...

Re: Spyderco and law enforcement personnel

Very interesting, it seems like a mixed bag here.

The LE professionals on YouTube may be in the minority as true "knife guys."

Re: Spyderco and law enforcement personnel

Very popular. This is just from my limited recollection, so it's most likely wrong, but Spyderco seemed to be the first knifemaker embraced by the law enforcement community. I did an internship with my local police department way back in 1991 and nearly every officer had a Police model with a fully...

I used to not keep them, and I now have a CF plain edged Civilian without a box.

I've been keeping all my boxes for the past 10 years or so.

Re: KW CF/M4 PM2 question

It's one solid machined piece of CF (or two, one for each handle side). The quality is very very high as well, and I like the execution on this better than the CF Yojimbo 2. EDIT: I just noticed that the knife in the picture is set-up as right side tip down (as it comes from the factory). The guy wh...

Spyderco and law enforcement personnel

I've seen several YouTube videos where active LE personnel reference Spyderco as the de facto standard knife for LE. Granted, the sample size is small (their unit/department/other buddies on the force) and it's wildly unscientific. But I wonder: how true is it? How popular is Spyderco with law enfor...
