Re: Anyone Interested in a Sprint Run SouthFork?

I would be in for anything. 4v sounds about right. 10v would be great too.
Hope they are ground a bit thinner - closer to the way Phil makes them. Maybe something like the sprig grind on the southfork?

Re: para 3 - lanyard tube and aftermarket replacements?

Just a bit of background too. I like blurple. I really do.
But... I also have been considering the cf/s90v version. I wanted to dry run what would happen if I sanded down the peel-ply CF scales. It is all definitely doable.

Re: para 3 - lanyard tube and aftermarket replacements?

How’d you get the stock lanyard tube back in? I chucked mine up in my drill press and used a file to take the flare out, there was no way it was going to go back in. I’d just file down your stock one, you could chuck it and use a file in the bottom, just mark off the amount you want to take off. I ...

Re: para 3 - lanyard tube and aftermarket replacements?

That sand job looks great! If that were my knife, I would try to sand down the tube you have first. Worst case, you’re buying another anyways. But best case, you got a really nice looking para3 that you didn’t have to buy another tube for Can I ask how flush the stop pin and other screws are? I wou...

Re: para 3 - lanyard tube and aftermarket replacements?

I haven't ordered any myself but I've seen other people get anodized hardware and lanyard tubes/plugs for PM2 and Para3 from Blades We Love and the lanyard plugs were specifically made smaller so they won't cause problems like the stock lanyard tubes. Doctor Frunkey recently made a video of him ins...

para 3 - lanyard tube and aftermarket replacements?

I finally got around to swapping the scales on my rex 45 - from orange to blurple. Thanks again @spydersense for the scales. I sanded the scales down, which I realize is an odd preference. After I reassembled the knife, I realized that by smoothing out the texture, I had taken 1-1.5mm off each scale...

Re: Please help me fix my urban pivot

Here's another option: The "D" shaped liners are very difficult to reproduce when making aftermarket scales for these FRN knives. (The internal spacers and standoffs also present their own challenges to replicate) I was able to do it with some very delicate chisel work on one set of wood scales - bu...

Re: Spyderco Smock

It may. The video from BladeHQ shows a different clip hole pattern from the mid-year catalog, including left and right tip-up carry.

Re: Smock Flipper

Anyone else notice that the clip configuration in this video and the mid-year catalog is different form the clip in the BladeHQ video? The BladeHQ shows a standard three scree clip, with the knife tapped for right or left tip up carry.
