Replies: 26

I just sent one to Golden for observation as it has developed a good amount of vertical blade play. My other lock backs didn't have nearly as much as the SB Caly did, so I doubt it is normal. I agree, at no point have I not. If there is excessive play then either the locking bar or the "tang" of th...

Just opened the box with my new Caly 3.5 SB in it. There's a quite a bit of vertical blade play on this knife and that's got me concerned. I also own a Caly 3.5 and Caly 3.0 which, in spite of being used for a long while, neither has any vertical blade play. Is this normal for this knife? :confused...

Hi Chuck. I got the same knife recently. Did you notice a strange odor coming from the SB steel? Also, when cutting apples, do you notice the transfer of metal on to the slice of apple? Carbon steel knives will have an odor when cutting acidic foods. It is normal. It will become less distinct with ...

Lost some Dragonflies myself. Lost them while riding a motorcycle on a nice long twisty road. Came out of my pocket. This was with the old FRN molded clips. The new Dfly2's with wire clips do not have the same problem.

Huge bummer. Know how you feel. Time to order a replacement!!

I have an Emerson Traveller and right away - out of the box after a bit of lube on pivot and playing with it for a day, I realized the lock could be made to easily fail with minimal spine force. There was also vertical play in the blade and you could heard the blade and lock mating surface clicking....

My G10 Caly3 keeps finding its way into my pocket everyday. :spyder:
Caly 3.5 in SB is pretty much the same pocket real-estate as a Caly 3, so unless the laws where you live specify under a 3" blade, why not carry the 3.5?

Think you might be surprised. AFAIK, the Japanese knife making industry is still more like a craft guild that relies on skilled workers, rather than a group of modern factories that rely on CNC and other automated equipment. Some are, literally, family operations. Better ventilation, possibly. Bett...

I finally got my 2nd batch Moonglow Manix 2. I have 1 from the first batch, and one from this new batch. The material is totally different. Exposed to the same lights it doesn't glow as bright or long. I tested this using 2 identical 6700k T5 lamps for a fish tank. Each knife was exposed to identica...

Very interesting, however that was 22-23 years ago now? I'm willing to bet it doesn't look like that any more. I would assume that like most other areas of manufacturing, some positions have been automated for consistency and quality control. I'm also sure that health and safety standards have risen...

I finally managed to get a Blue Dodo, nib, from the secondary market. Im in love with this design. It has made start to lust after this upcoming sprint even more!!! What a great little knife. Im curious why Spyderco has gone away from these non-caged locks. I like it more then the Manix 2's lock.
