Re: Police 4 Serrated LC200N lookout thread

If indexing is important then why not add jimping to the lock bar above the release cutout. Not overly important to me who has been carrying a Spyderco since '83, but to many it would provide traction and lock release location. Rarely seen if ever on custom order production folders.

Re: Q

I love the R2 that Sal sent to me and I posted a review back in 2011. https://www.countryknives.com/c67-rs-review/ I have been recently carrying it again as my EDC to torture test the flat ground VG10 blade. I have grown even more impressed by VG10 as a result. It holds a great edge and takes a razo...

Re: Q

The "Q" was my idea and project. It did present its' challenges. I designed the knife, the clip and the lock, which were all unique. I don't know that we could do it the same today? Would CQI dictate improvements/changes? If so, what would they be? Was the wire clip on the 'Q' the beginning of inno...

Re: Spyderco Neck Lanyard?

I have always been concerned about the inherent danger of paracord/nylon webbing lanyards (and the same material being used for holding neck knives) as it could be used for grappling or strangling in an altercation. Also, it would never be a good idea to be wore around any machinery. That is why I h...

Re: Would you be interested in a smaller version of the Respect (FB44GP)?

No dis-Respect, but after five years of carry, the Bradly Bowie is a much easier EDC.

Re: Verifying Worker authenticity (pic heavy)

When was the sharpened cut swedge changed to the longer curved transition wedge as in this Sprint Run Worker? (https://www.spyderco.com/catalog/details.php?product=893) As I recall both Worker models in the Evolution Set had the newer curved wedge. This is one way to tell the difference between an o...

Re: Benshot Lil Native Rocks glass

Cath & I are enjoying sake we bought from North American Sake Brewery when we visited Charlottesville, Va last fall. The food was eclectic and fantastic too. We met Andrew the head brewer and got an impromptu tour. He has a real passion for making sake. http://www.pourmeone.com/sake/ http://www.pour...

Re: Grail Achieved, Slight Issue.

Making an elliptical stop pin takes a lot more skill than a corrected symmetrical round one. If you open the knife and hold the blade so that there is a 50% overlap at the intersection of the tang and titanium lockbar, you could use a modified feeler gauge to determine the the additional diameter of...

Re: Grail Achieved, Slight Issue.

I have fixed a number of liner and a few compression locks (Spyderco, Benchmade, ZT, etc.) with this issue by loosening the stop pin retention screws and turning 90°(up to 180°). Many times the stop pin becomes distorted and/or worn due to excessive slamming to opening or just long tern wear and tea...

Re: Tip down Chinook

Buy a Chinook 4 and take it to a reputable gunsmith or machinist. It should be an each fix to make it tip-down. Tip-down is my preferred orientation―of course I have been carrying a Spyderco everyday since 1984. :D
