Re: Lanyard tube rattle in Taichung models

I have some that do it too. It never really bothered me, but some people here have suggested: remove the lanyard tube entirely or put locktite on the tube or put figernail polish on the tube. All of those require pulling off the show-side scale so don't go for it unless you are comfortable taking y...

Lanyard tube rattle in Taichung models

Anybody else experience this on their Taichung Spydercos?

Both my SpydieChefs, Bouwer and Smock have developed this annoying lanyard tube rattle.

Maybe one day Spyderco will stop ruining their knives with ugly, obtrusive lanyard holes.

Re: Para 3 Salt Lc200n

While I love the Salt line and LC200N, I do not think I’d get a Para3 LW Salt. BD1N is already very resistant to corrosion, and it comes at a very attractive price-point. A Chaparral LW in LC200N is a different story, however! I’d love one of those, especially for its thin blade-stock. Would be inte...

Re: Underrated utility

I have many kitchen knives, including really pricey premium models from Japanese makers, etc.
however, Spyderco’s MBS blades kitchen knives are my most used and loved in the kitchen.
They take a lickin’ and keep on tickin’..!
Def underrated, with tremendous value.

Re: Squared/Rectangular Handle Scales: Do you like them or not?

I much prefer a more versatile, simple handle design. One of my favorite features of the SpydieChef, for example. Also why I love the Sebenza 21, traditional folders and other knives with similar handle designs. All these contours, finger choild, etc. only restrict the versatility of the knife, IMO.

Re: Caribbean Behind the edge thickness?

0.013 is thin, but not exceedingly thin. I personally wish most factory knives came with a small measurement behind the edge.

Re: Does anyone else wish for a standard scale color other than black?

Hate knives with black scales/handles.
Super boring, and uninviting.

Would love Dark Grey more, but especially dark blue or green.

Re: Tips for UF bench stone?

Rubber erasers work well on this stone. However, a rust eraser is probably best for cleaning waterstones, but also does exceptionally well. You can buy a rust eraser on Amazon. It’s a product made in Japan (at least my version is). The UF benchstone is one of my favorites. It polishes fairly well, a...

Re: What is this on the new Spydiechef lock bar?

Maybe another CQIed version is due.
One without stick due to better fit between blade tabg and lock bar surface, as well as a broader lock-bar to avoid travel when negative pressure is applied.

Just a thought.

Re: What is this on the new Spydiechef lock bar?

Mine still has the same stick when it was new. Does not seem to be getting better after many weeks. We are still waiting on the lockbar treatment question to be answered by Spyderco. edit: I have a second one NIB that has lock stick as well, but I haven't tried to work it out yet. Both of my exampl...

Re: Spyderco Centofante and other Sub-3MM Blades: Afraid of breakage or no?

I best the crap out of my knives, when it comes to cutting. I do not pry with my knives, as they’re obviously not prybars. I’ve had zero issues, and can only hope that Spyderco and other brands start manufacturing more knives with a thin blade stock and thin grind. The Chapparel is an incredible kni...

Re: PE H1 for EDC - how long will it last?

Honestly, for regular EDC, it should last plenty. If you have proper work in mind- IE. Cutting a bunch of cardboard boxes, etc. then look elsewhere. I carried my PE H1 Dragonfly for 2 weeks on my Hawaii honeymoon, and it was perfect. I used it to open boxes, clamshell packages, cut fruit, zipties, e...

Curious what happened with the lock bar issue? Never saw a definitive reply, Perhaps Sal put the brakes on production to straighten something out?

I wonder what happened there, as well.
Hopefully we’ll get an answer one day.

Re: Kitchen Knife Sprints: Any Interest?

I love the Spyderco kitchen knives!
But would prefer to do the sprints with their affordable line of knives.
Superblue, Hap40, LC200N, ZDP189 would all be interesting to me.
