Re: So I had an Amalgam and an extra Pivot ....

I think this is genius!
Why did you drill through the far side scale? Does that hole allow the back side of the pivot to clear the scale so you can fully unlock the compression leaf?

Re: FRN de-dye / re-dye

Knives plus does a fade, from the yellow to green to blue. Somehow they can make the end blue, so it is possible.

Re: Sanding or reshaping FRN?

Thank you both. Good advice.
That was my one concern with the Para3 LW. Now, no concerns except for how long I will have to wait :D

Sanding or reshaping FRN?

Here's the background: The one thing I do to all of my Para3's is to sand down the choil just a bit - flattening it out so my index finger can sit a bit further back. When I do this, the Para3 becomes ergonomically perfect for me. This is easy with the g10, since the liners are not even close. I am ...

Re: Which Spydercos saw the most use in January?

Ukpk in s110v.
Para 3 in rex45 a distant second. I might be cheating a bit since there are multiples of the ukpk

Re: UKPK Drop Point vs. Leaf Shape

Personally, I find the drop point to be slightly more functional because the tip is shorter and able to to maneuver better (e.g. coring an apple), but find its form less appealing than the leaf shape. Kinda funny - was thinking the exact opposite thing today. I have been trying out my drop point in...

Re: Suggest a medium sized Spyderco FB for hiking & camping

Probably not a helpful suggestion, but the upcoming bow river will check most of your boxes. Not quite a drop point, and no batonning... but it fits everything else. I have one from Phil Wilson, and the ergonomics and ability to choke up is a bit better than the Southfork design (in my opinion) desp...

Maybe I am the odd man out, but I would love to see a Goddard. Preferably FFG, keep the micarta. Tip up would be nice as well.

What's the price point they are aiming at ?
Somewhere between free and crazy cheap.
In the US, MSRP is $49.95, or MAP of $32.47.

Re: Hear me out: The Traveling Spyderco Knife Box!

I think it is a great idea, but the devil is in the details as usual. I arranged a passaround over at bladeforums, and one guy flaked and disappeared. I think he had some very real issues in his life, but the passaround abruptly ended nonetheless. Perhaps we limit it to 2-3 knives per box? Maybe the...

Re: "The one"

I can do "The Two" For summertime and work, UKPK in s110v. Have a few different flavors now, but this is it. Wonderful ergos, light as a feather, keeps an aggressive edge forever. For long pants weather (only a few months a year here) I really like the Para 3. Have most of the steels, but s110v is c...

Re: Mantra Bearing Race

Will the Mantra3 have the same bearing system as the Sliverax? The Sliverax works very well, and I would have no complaints about this bearing system in the Mantra3.

Re: UKPK 52100 Sprint?

Yes and yes please.
I am now up to 4 ukpks, with two more sets of custom scales on the way. I really love my Para3 in rex 45 and my sliverax, but the UKPKs can cut 99% of what I need them to do without even making me think twice. The more I use them, the more I realize I don't need a lock.

Re: Something has been bothering me...

I spend more time here than any other forum, even if I don't post much. The knives are a given - but it is the people that make this forum worthwhile.

Re: Serrata review

Sorry - let me clarify I was relaying the comments on the video - they are all piling on to the "inadequate" steel choice of dendritic 440c. I didn't mean for it to sound like I was voicing my opinion - I was not. I think the dendritic 440c is a different and interesting alternative to the high carb...

Re: Serrata review

I handled it once - beautiful to hold, but too big/thick for my purposes. I read through some of the comments on the youtube video page, and everyone seems fixated on 440c. Even when cast, 440c is no longer adequate for a knife. Speaking as a reformed steel snob - I never realized how much steel imp...
