Re: Manix 3

@Wartstein, regarding the extended blade, have you seen my mockups on the previous page? I photoshopped an extended blade over the regular Manix to at least provide a visual representation of how an extended Manix blade would theoretically look like. :)

Re: Spyderco's Designated "Beaters"

Whatever knives I am using for my day to day fishing work always become my beaters. Conditions are rough out there and the knives see a ton of wear from sun, salt, fish teeth, blood, bile, etc. They get dirty and beat up but these two don’t even bat an eye at the daily abuse they receive. https://i...

Re: Spyderco Smock Custom Wood Handles

Hi Chris, Are these wood scales stabilized, including the Watus? Thanks The wood is not traditionally stabilized. So if you are planning on getting the oil finish, you must be prepared to take care of the wood and condition it periodically as well as being mindful of the conditions that you are usi...

Re: Manix 3

I would be very interested to see your ideas. I'm curious to see what you did to reduce the folded width especially. While I've grown used to it the Manix folders are certainly wide in the pocket. You may be new here but I've found your posts insightful. Glad to have you around. Thank you vivi! :)

Re: Manix 3

Also (I forgot this thought while typing my previous reply but I swear I was thinking about it earlier, lol) a choil-less design *might* be possible in a CBBL given that the D-Allara 3 has no choil and a full cutting edge. Again, *might* is the word as I'm no engineer here.

Re: Manix 3

Thank you for making this thread vivi. I've been struggling with making a thread for an updated Manix for months now, but I was apprehensive that I still do not have enough forum cred to garner attention and maybe even offend people who are already content with the current Manixes. I love the Manix ...

Re: High Hollow Grind

This is why I love my GB2, the hollow grind. It really was a mean slicer out of the box and even now, months after having it, I still have to sharpen it yet it still makes curvy cuts in paper (not that I haven't used it in other EDC purposes). If the detent was only stronger and I didn't have to dea...

Re: Power Lock

I’d try a Millie, only because I want a BACKLOCK Military. I am not an engineer. I have trouble wrapping my head around how having more parts does not create weak points that could fail. The backlock is simple in that regard. Hmmm, just a thought, but maybe it will help in eliminating blade play do...

Re: Sal's Casual Bombshell Thread

All I know is that a HG Delica would look amazing in photos. Nothing like the light transition effect on well-lit photos of a hollow ground blade.

Re: C-60 Ayoob Campaign: No I Won't Shut Up

It will sell well as long as the steel is more premium than VG10 and construction will be screwed on, not pinned. (0.02¢) :)

Re: Gayle Bradley 2

Not that it's lock-related, but this would have been "the knife" for me if only aside from the lock stick, the dismal detent issue would also have been avoided. My detent is such that I can actually flick open the knife by just snapping my wrist with a moderate amount of force. If only my copy had a...

Translucent green, LC200N, full screw construction, XL and regular sized runs.

Bet it'd be a home run.

Re: Spyderco's Designated "Beaters"

Manix 2 in S30V. Show me any other knife in Spyderco's lineup which has the same tank-like build quality, fit and finish, full liners, great ergonomics, strong tip, and one amazing lock that is truly ambidextrous - all for less than $130. It truly is the most value-oriented knife Spyderco has ever m...

Re: Gayle Bradley 2

Thanks everyone for the replies. Appreciate the detailed post description Nerdlock. My tang appears flat enough, definitely no hollow point that I can tell. May resort to your solution further down the track. I have done that before on another knife. Will persist with it for now. Cheers. No problem...

Re: Gayle Bradley 2

When I first opened the GB2 after the terrible lock stick issue, I noticed it had this hollow in its tang/lockbar interface. I wasn't sure but it seemed that it contributed to the lock stick . https://i.ibb.co/8NPCxKC/IMG-20200906-135710.jpg I disassembled the knife, https://i.ibb.co/6gB3pXJ/IMG-202...
