Re: CS Exclusive Orange Paramilitary 2 DLC CTS-XHP

These were interesting but had to consider the upcoming M4 model in natural jade G10 (something I very much like) and the new S110V. Both at lower price points and with better steels. And that might have made me question CS's pricing except for the fact that they will sell every single one rather q...

Re: CS Exclusive Orange Paramilitary 2 DLC CTS-XHP

And I have been stuck at a meeting at my corp office listening to my COO and VP blathering on about the company I have worked at for 15 years and will probably work there another 20, all the while I am just sitting there thinking "can I be excused?

Re: CS Exclusive Orange Paramilitary 2 DLC CTS-XHP

On price, consider this: if it were lower, you'd see these flipping like crazy on sites like eBay. It's a fair price, even though lower is always nicer.

I'm a little surprised that there is apparently no per-order limit, though. I would have expected a 2/customer limit.

Re: MT21P - Mule Team Fixed Blade with CPM 4V

I thought I read somewhere that the Spyderco store staff had said there were +/- 1200 of these, which would mean that they're selling faster than most of the recent MT knives (a lot faster...). 4V has market appeal that a lot of the recent steels didn't - I would not delay very long.

Re: Paramilitary models - does anyone have them ALL?

I have at least one of all of the sprints and exclusives and some of the regular production knives. I used to have two complete sets, but sold one of them. There will be quite a few to add over the next year or so. ;)

Re: Mule Team MT01 52100 - Help With Scales

You may not be able to find that locally. KnifeKits.com sells carbide spade bits, which will work if you use them carefully. I was able to enlarge the holes with that bit. I smoked everything else I tried, literally.

They come in and out of stock. They're available only from the link in the first post. They're truly excellent (I have one).

Re: Spyderco ATR: WOW!

I owned one of the titanium PE ones for a number of years and eventually sold it. I didn't like the grip, and the blade profile was so-so. I really didn't like the cobra hood - I had several unintended "wave" openings. It was beautifully made but really didn't strike any chords for me. I'd far rathe...

Re: S110V Paramilitary 2 has dropped!!!

Agree on letting the frenzy die down.

Blue is very sensitive to lighting and post-processing, so it could be the pics rather than the actual G10 that looks so purple. We shall see soon enough.

Re: flipper that doesn't flip so well (Southard)

My Brown Southard just never really flipped that well. The Black Southard is awesome..... But they are both a push button technique imo Mine doesn't flip for beans. I've tried loosening the pivot, cleaning it out thoroughly, lubing with very light grease, lubing with various oils - this one simply ...

Re: The Whites

I used to have a bunch. I dyed them back when FRN came in any color you wanted as long as it was black. ;) I think I still have a couple of Delicas in white around.

Re: Rotary Grinder to Mod my Spyderco knives?

If you're using a bench grinder for that sort of purpose, you want a low rpm grinder made for working with edged tools. Ideally yes, however I just have a normal 3000rpm grinder. It's OK with care, but I never go right to the edge. To be honest I think a low speed grinder would also be quite capabl...

Re: Rotary Grinder to Mod my Spyderco knives?

I'm with the post above for most purposes. The speed is too high and the working surface is too small for doing anything other than "filework" on the spine or perhaps setting a sharpening choil.

I hadn't seen that - thank you for posting that. And once again, thanks to Spyderco for the whole Mule program. I've been in since MT01. :spyder:
