10 wt Nano-oil for knives and flashlight threads. It's excellent for the threads on titanium flashlights, which tend to gall badly.

Just wondering if anyone has got one of the customs from there? They have a lava I really like.just haven't pulled the plug yet. Do you mean customspyderco.com? I have ordered several custom Spydercos from them, they really do good work. Go to "About Us" and read all about them. They are a group of...

Love my Opinels! I always take one with me when I collect something from German customs. Due to German carry restriction laws, I open it very ostentatiously with both hands, nicely and very slowly and cut the package open. Oh, that seems to be sharp, they often say then. I have a stainless Number 6,...

Very cool. The Case Sodbuster seems to have come from that basic design. I wonder if they sell direct to Americans or if you have to go through a knife company middle man? Don't think they sell directly, here's a few links, unfortunately all in German: http://www.messer-mit-tradition.de/windmuehlen...

Gunslinger, I'd like to offer a well-meant advice, from experience:

Don't start with lights, knives are bad enough, you might just add another addiction!

Maybe my advice is too late already?

Cheers,

I like that. Elegant and handsome - the finish work on those steel pins with brass bushings is a good indicator of hand finish work. Solingen used to be a popular name to find on cheap imports in the states, along with Rostfrei (for Italian or supposedly Italian blades) but it is good to see a nice...

Solingen made pocket knife

I'd like to show you a true, genuine Solingen-made pocket knife. Yes, they are still being made, fortunately. A forum friend in a German knife forum was kind enough to select and buy it for me according to my request. He lives just 20 km away from Solingen and offered to do that for several forum me...

Thanx for an instructive post with great pics!
I have the original tanto and I'll keep it forever, imho one of the most beautiful Spydies I own! :D

I would really love to see this, a dream come true. It would be wonderful to order a knife with custom features right from the start without having to send it to a custom scale maker such as Cuscadi etc..

However, as bh49 said, it will probably never happen. :(

Hi Mr. skatenut! That Delica is Really Awesome ! :D It's a superb work. My respects for the CustomSpyderco craftsmen. Are the Punisher Skulls carved on the Ti? Or it is Laser Engraved? :rolleyes: Regards, Thank you! According to their website the skulls are CNC engraved. Cheers, skatenut

Impressive piece of work, skatenut! Are you going to carry this one - or just admire it? :) TedP I'd love to carry it, in a pouch, of course. However, German law unfortunately prohibits the carry of one-hand opening lockback folders in public "without sufficient reason". :mad: So I'm just not going...

Ti Scaled custom Spyderco

Received something from the superb craftsmen at CustomSpyderco several days ago: A flat-ground Delica with 3mm thick titanium scales, one side tricked out with the punisher motif. The other side is plain, except for their "hand" motif. This is my third Spyderco from them, the other two having Cocobo...

These arrived some days ago, Li'l Matriarch and Matriarch 2. They are a very nice addition to my other hawkbills. However, I wonder why the Li'l Matriarch has jimping on the back of the blade and the M2 doesn't, as can be seen in the pic. I'm a great fan of jimping, even if it's on a blade mostly us...
