No idea. I think it just works with cyanoacrylate. It sets really fast too. Maybe just a few seconds.

Re: Baking Soda

I just learned that baking soda will help super glue cure quicker and be used to build up broken parts. Check Youtube for methods. Yep. It can be used to cure glue, specifically cyanoacrylate almost instantly. It also makes a great filler when used with cyanoacrylate for small gaps in plastic, glas...

Re: What grits do you use on your different steels?

Except for a few fine grained steels, I finish at around 600 grit. I hit it a few times with an extra extra fine DMT. For the fine grained steels like superblue or XHP, I finish with a golden stone.

Re: Ignore feature?

In all seriousness I have used the feature but not because of what somebody said. Only because he just posts wall of pics a hundred times a day with no text and it's annoying to scroll past it on a phone. So yeah I have to agree this is a pretty good bunch of guys. And of the same set of knives eac...

Re: Is it worth stropping Spydies? ... and something about Sharpmaker hard stones

Yeah Mike, that's the same thing I do and I never have issues with removing a burr. A few very light higher angle passes will cut a burr off cleanly and it doesn't take many more light alternating passes to get back to your apex with no burr. Good tip. I use that same technique too Lance. I never h...

Re: Is it worth stropping Spydies? ... and something about Sharpmaker hard stones

Yes Chuck I can get it hair splitting off of the stones AND I can get it even sharper off of the strops afterwards. I can touch up an edge faster with stropping on cardboard than I can by getting out my sharpening gear, why is that so hard for you to follow? There is no edge you can put on a knife ...

Re: Is it worth stropping Spydies? ... and something about Sharpmaker hard stones

If I can't touch up an edge with a simple strop and bring it back to razor sharpness any faster than I can with a fine stone, then my technique is lacking. ;) If you're just as fast with a strop as a fine stone, then why waste time on the strop? Didn't you mention that you couldn't get shaving shar...

Re: Is it worth stropping Spydies? ... and something about Sharpmaker hard stones

There just exists this unrealistic idea that you can remove a burr with a strop and everything is peachy. This was the idea that was presented to me when I first started stropping, and for a while I even believed it but I noticed far more chipping in my edges and less than expected edge retention. ...

Re: Is it worth stropping Spydies? ... and something about Sharpmaker hard stones

Hi, I don't consider myself an expert, but I do have my own experiences with stropping knives, not just from Spyderco. My trick and consideration is to get a Tormek leather stropping wheel and load it with white Tormek stropping paste. Just lead the edge, both side, along the spinning wheel and you...

Re: What Spydie would you grab in an emergency?

Once time during a strong earthquake and a subsequent tsunami warning, I bugged out of the house(100 meters from the ocean at the time) and I wanted at least 200 rounds of ammo. I wound up bringing 600 rounds for .45, .40, and 9mm. I changed over to single caliber after that. This sounds like an em...

Re: What Spydie would you grab in an emergency?

So rather than being obtuse about it, lets play an internet game, put all of your knives in front of you on a table, grab the easiest one. Tell us which one it is, not so hard right? You can even close your eyes and pick if it helps ;) I'm really not being obtuse. I'm being realistic. If you want t...

Re: What Spydie would you grab in an emergency?

... We have knives in bags and vehicles for sure, but the luxury of choosing which is knife is pretty much low on the priorities. If I'm dressed, it's pretty much the one in my pocket. If I'm not, it'll be the one I can reach fastest, that is, if I remember to grab a knife. I agree, if I had been d...

Re: What Spydie would you grab in an emergency?

Luck favors the prepared. I put together a little package of a SpecOps sheath, Busse DSSF (kind of an 8" kitchen knife on steriods) and a M4 Ti Millie that I keep by my bed. When the fan gets dirty, that's what I grab on the way out. Yup, that would be ideal. However, imagining that you'll still ha...
