Re: Something new is coming soon.

Hard to know what are the exact specs - but this seems within 1-2mm of the Cat, more than the chaparral.

Re: Sliverax Mod-Squad: pinups & give-away

Stickers received. Thank you Paul.
The envelope looks like usps ran over it a couple times in a rain storm. Luckily the stickers are intact.

Re: Sliverax Mod-Squad: pinups & give-away

Nice job Doc!
I am also considering grinding off the flipper tab. It flips fine - but the more I use the knife, the less I use the flipper tab.

If you delete the lanyard hole, he provides the standoff and screws (torx 6). Really quick and easy deliver, great guy to work with.

Re: Para 3 Cruwear in stock..

I've never had the opportunity to handle micarta scales like this. I know it's called canvas micarta but does it really feel like canvas? Not really - the canvas refers to the base material, which leaves a certain visual texture. Paper vs linen vs canvas vs burlap micarta leaves progressively large...

suingab. Only scale maker I found with a good way to delete the lanyard hole (stand-off).

Re: Para 3 Cruwear in stock..

Really loving this knife. But man, do those scales get dirtly quickly. Held it a couple times, then peeked under the clip :eek: Was planning this anyway - now the knife is just about how I like it. https://i.imgur.com/SxznDFS.jpg?1 https://i.imgur.com/MT0dcJw.jpg?1 https://i.imgur.com/6XluzsJ.jpg?1 ...

Re: Sliverax Mod-Squad: pinups & give-away

Could you post some close ups of around the base of the handle and on the top of the spine. I thought about rounding the spine while I am shortening the blade. Doc, Just got my chopped Sliverax back from DigDug - Awesome job!! Two responses to your earlier questions. He contoured the scales as well...

Don't think you're allowed to. Would have to change your forum name to mini... or gray :D

Re: Name a Spyderco knife you fell out of love with ;)

Native. It was my first huge crush, and I could not put it down for months. I even have one inbound - but the magic is definitely not there anymore. I think it is because I found better (for me) knives.

little bit of guilt here :o

Re: Sliverax Mod-Squad: pinups & give-away

I also had the lukewarm spot from the original clip. I don't have a chopped sliverax (yet), but I fixed my issue by swapping to the shorter dragonfly-sized wire clip.
Just bought another from SFO - clip28 if it helps.

Re: Pacific Salt with Pacific Monsters

If I remember correctly, you ground down the tip hump on your pac salt. With the size of those beasts, you may need a slight size upgrade. I think you can take this one and grind a sharper tip to your liking? Maybe Sal will make a sprint in H1 for you. https://assets.brandfolder.com/k2r9c4zc/view.pn...

Re: I feel like the only person who likes S30V in 2017

Agree with most of what has been said. If s30v is fine, then s110v is finer :D. Let me approach it this way - I don't really need another knife. Got everything more than covered. Since I still keep buying new ones though, it is awfully nice to have a different steel as an additional selling point. C...

Re: Re: Name a Spyderco knife you thought you would like but didn't once you owned it.

Came across this older thread looking for comments on the positron (trying to decide its fate). Gonna resurrect an almost zombie thread, just to say that ergos are such an odd thing. The two that never felt right in my hands were the PM2 and the caly 3.5. Strange thing is I am loving the Para 3 and ...
