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.

The thing I don't understand is why so many Spyderco folders use carbon steels VS nearly exclusively using stainless for fixed blades.

I value toughness more in a fixed blade.

I worry about corrosion more in a folder.

Always seemed backwards to me.
Been wondering the same for years..!

Re: The Waterway Will Be Mine...

Unless you're running the knife's edge into the sheath when you un sheath and re sheath it, you shouldn't have a problem. :) I agree, but find it really hard to avoid touching the sheath with the edge in regular use. I am always trying to be mindful, but can’t always be as careful as perhaps one wo...

Re: The Waterway Will Be Mine...

Anybody else’s Waterway came as dull as a butter knife? I’m going to resharpen and test it- might be the sheath. I tested the edge after taking it in and out of the sheath It’s not the sheath. Mine was also dull straight out of the box. QC needed to be better on this one. Yeah. I reprofiled and sha...

What’s holding the G10? No hardware to speak of. Internal pins and glue. Right! I really like that clean, hardware-free look. Hope it holds up well over the years. Gonna put a 13-14 degree convex edge on that sucker and see how it does. I'll be shooting for a similar angle with a V edge. It'll be f...

Otherwise, it’s nearly perfect.

Re: Can I baton with lc200n?

I use my SpydieChef plenty hard. I’ve cut really heavy dity zipties, fish bones, and other typical material like heavy duty cardboard, wood and rope. I find Lc200N to be plenty tough. What I do recommend, however, is to use the right edge when tackling heavier duty tasks. I personally put a 13-14 de...
