Re: What "Other" is in your pocket???

I really like that 0470! That, and maybe 0460, are probably the only other current production ZTs I'd like to have. I have an 0450 that I really like so the 0460 will probably never happen. I liked the 470 so much I got another one as a backup.. Lol it's really that good to me. I never had any love...

Re: What "Other" is in your pocket???

Yep, I like it more than the Shaman. Just as comfortable but it locks your hand in better. More cutting edge. Edge feels like it is as thin as the Shaman's except maybe at the tip. I like a backlock more than a compression too. Very comfortable. I do wish they would bring the hollow grind back for ...

Re: How often do you sharpen your babys

Depends... I don't like them getting dull because that means I need to put more time into them later. Generally if they get to the point where I feel they aren't that they don't have that stupid sharp feeling anymore ill hit the sharpmaker and bring that edge back. Usually just a few swipes will do....

Re: Is this a fake?

I cannot afford a new one now, so will look into buying a used one off Ebay. Will probably post here if I find one and have any questions about its authenticity! There is a high probability of getting a fake on ebay too so be careful there. He should do research on how to tell the difference, bigge...

Re: Anyone taken apart the new Smock?

Smock is a bearing flipper right? It wouldn't need cqi like the Kapara did on the pivot I assume. Actually, the Kapara probably didn't need cqi either, except I guess people wanted it to have action more like a PM2. But I believe the bushing pivot is superior so maybe it should have had it from the ...

Re: Which Spidie next? The Taiwanese conundrum

I'm for the Amalgam, because it's my favorite spyderco! I would like a Kapara, but I'm not really into the smock... Maybe I would be if I tried one but the design just doesn't grab me.

Carry my amalgam all the time though, like right now!

Looks authentic, but check the liners for 2 offset notches. I haven't seen a counterfeit yet that had the notches.

Re: BBS DLC Paramilitary 2 Exclusive?

I like tinkering. I worked on and setup my guitars, i do the same with my knives. Sometimes I just want to check out the guts, or clean them up and get them working smoothly again. It's very relaxing to me. Getting them to work the best they can is a fun little adventure sometimes, getting everythin...

Re: BBS DLC Paramilitary 2 Exclusive?

Are you guys all saying that you can't dial the action in to your liking by adjusting the torx screws, or you just expect it to arrive with an action that is perfect for you (but maybe not ideal for someone else)?? Is it a lack of education that this can be easily adjusted by the user? Being afraid...

Re: BBS DLC Paramilitary 2 Exclusive?

Can people stop crying about the action of a knife? As long as it can open with a slow roll of the thumb, then there is technically nothing wrong with it and I doubt Spyderco would do anything for you...because that's what the knife is designed to do. It's not just for repeatedly flicking around an...

Re: BBS DLC Paramilitary 2 Exclusive?

Just got mine. It's a beautiful knife! Perfectly centered blade, beautiful fit and finish. One problem though... Pivot is too tight! Not a big deal, I need to swap the pocket clip to tip up, then I'll tune the pivot and all will be well! Can't wait to start using it! Update : swapped the clip to ti...

I think I ordered mine Sunday, didn't show it actually moving until Tuesday. Got it Thursday. Ive had multiple packages show as awaiting shipment and then be halfway here all of a sudden. I think usps sometimes has delays in their updates for some reason. It seems there tracking isn't as smooth runn...

Re: Do you immediately sharpen a new Spyderco?

Nope. All of mine have come stupid sharp! Seems like no other production company can do that. Cold Steel is #1 imho with Spyderco a close 2nd. I don't even value initial factory sharpness much, but I'm just being honest. My new broken skull is absolutely hair whittling, even with the grain. A good ...

Re: Red G10 Para 3 M390

People selling them on blade forums for 180-200, and even saying they didn't want them but got them anyway. I'd refuse to buy just out of spite! Would be nice to have a red one to put away for my son (his favorite color is red, but he's not 3 yet lol).

I'll pick him up something one of these days.

Re: Do you immediately sharpen a new Spyderco?

Nope. All of mine have come stupid sharp! Seems like no other production company can do that. I just got a new zt 0470...dull. My 1st 0470 was sharp, but the bevels were uneven. They use too obtuse an angle anyway so I do reprofile them. But my Spydies? Nope. They shave, curly cue paper... That's go...
