Re: mid sized "gentleman" folder

You seem to carry small and large, but not much in between. How about a rhino? Small, gentlemanly, and definitely not s30v.

Re: Pocket Clip Sets and Handle Scale Sets : Would it be worth it for Spyderco and would you want them?

I would love more scale options. CQI would likely prevent this from happening. For instance, I remember a custom scale maker posting here asking about changes to the native 5? - the contours changed slightly from an older build to the current build. As such, the scales he made fit the original versi...

Re: If you had to pick just one?

I was going to pick the UKPK s110v - but if I could only have one, I would probably want a lock for the 5-10% of the time a little extra safety is needed. So I would choose the s110v Para 3. Funny thing - I don't even own one yet. When I quote myself, is it like talking to myself? :eek: One year la...

Re: You're So Jaded...

I have found two that work well for me - and it has actually made the :spyder: chase a bit more fun. Case in point - I love the new Ikuchi. I can't wait to try it out - for so many different reasons. If I get one with the first release - fine. If I miss out on the first batch, I can wait until the s...

Re: Who else is getting an Ikuchi as soon as they are released?

Just did an odd thing. There was one on ebay for about MAP, shipping from Canada. I chose to pass on it - hopefully a Canadian member got it, and won't have to worry about shipping from US to Canada.

I also have a regrind from Josh at RKE (a SouthFork). I highly recommend his work. It's definitely first rate. :)
I'm going to be waiting patiently for pics of this one! Fits the theme of the thread. It may push me to do the same :D

Re: FRN UKPK with Cuscadi scales (Mod complete!)

love my cuscadi UKPK scales. Remember to use the washers - makes the blade smoother and reduces play.I think they recommend double washers on each side.
Interesting thing too - did you ask for a solid backspacer? I have a carbon disk that acts like a spacer between the scales at the clip.

Re: [HELP NEEDED] Advice on Customizing Para 3

Agree with araneae - need a bit more info about your experience and comfort level. Some people have hada hard time disassembling a para3 for the first time (especially the lanyard tube). Regarding stone wash - very easy process. The tumbler will help, but make sure to get coarse media. My tumbler us...

Re: Favorite steel!

I find it a bit difficult to separate the knives from the steel.
As far as every day usage - s110v. This is mostly because I love carrying my ukpk and para3.
Rex 45 has really been growing on me.
And oddly enough, I would add s30v. Not in any way flashy, but it just works well.

Re: Can I baton with lc200n?

And as far as the comments on batonning hardwood - you guys have way more skills than me. I can't baton effectively with a 4 inch blade. I need all the help (and length) I can get.

Re: Can I baton with lc200n?

Thanks for the replies. Edge angle is a great consideration. I actually do have a cleaver - but I can get a little excited and my wife doesn't appreciate the splatter I generate when chopping up fish. I have been pressing down on the spine of the sprig with my palm to push it through the spine - con...

Re: More button compression locks?

It is (almost)exactly the same as the Autonomy 1 and 2. I think the button lock on the Smock is fantastic, minus the god awful choil thing. I think... (take the following with a grain of salt) In order to accommodate the front flipper on the Smock, the stop pin had to be moved way back. It is also ...

Can I baton with lc200n?

Kind of a serious question... Just ordered a waterway. Woo hoo. I have been using a sprig with s90v for all my fish processing. This includes occasionally cutting up large salmon into steaks. Kind of like batonning through the spine :eek: . I haven't had any edge issues, although I sometimes wince a...

Re: Smock Anticipation

Really loving this one! Well made, great finish and great detailing. While I was initially worried that it would be a bit bigger/heavier than I usually carry (ukpk...), it really disappears in the pocket since it is so sleek and slim. I also had the "grittiness" out of the box, which did not resolve...

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

I was thinking/dreaming all night about a factory released para3 with button lock. I think every compression lock with a choil (and no flipper) could easily accomodate a button in place of the cut-out on the far scale to allow access to the compression lock. Every flipper could accept one as well - ...

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

The placement of that button is at a bit of a mechanical disadvantage - being so far back. Yet the video makes it look pretty easy to disengage the compression lock. Really nice job. I am looking over all my compression locks now to see if a similar mod might work...
