Re: 3 in 1 motor oil okay for rust prevention on Spyderco blades?

I use mineral oil but I will tell you something we old hunters use. Wax. Furniture wax, candle wax, etc. will coat your blade and keep it from rusting. Be sure to coat the Spyder Hole. If you use candle wax, it is not usually toxic if unscented. Also, though I have some high powered rust preventativ...

Re: Manbug--Spydercos Most Awesome Knife!

Radioactive,

Who made those scales for you? Also, did you dye your Manbug's G10 or did somebody make those scales, as well. I remember seeing these before but I do not remember the details. Those look very nice.

Re: Endura hardware?

It'll cost you 5 bucks to send it in. Whether they will charge you to fix it is another story. Call and give them the sad story. They have a great reputation for helping out their customers.

Re: .Got my new Techno and...

How does it fit your hand? I have fairly large hands and I wonder how it will fit mine. This is why I have not bought one as I have not been able to hold one.

The color looks like a denim blue Kahr to me. But the blade shape is wrong. It could be British Racing Green though.

Re: Thoughts on modified Wharncliffe?

I am afraid that my favorite single blade wharncliffe is the Cold Steel Mini Tuff Lite. I like the design better than the Spyderco version (sorry) as it puts the blade at an angle and lower down from the handle so your fingers are not in the way while using it. The very thin true hollow ground blade...

Re: Thoughts on modified Wharncliffe?

I love the Wharncliffe as a secondary blade, but it is not versatile enough for a primary. The Stockman pattern is a good example of having a clip point with a secondary wharncliffe. The ultimate pocket knife would be something like a 2.5 inch Manbug with a secondary wharncliffe.

Re: getting manix 2 smooth

My XL's lock is still very hard to use because of the spring pressure. No matter what I try the blade will not fall free and the lock is a two hand affair (and I have large, muscular hands!). I have tried lubing the knife. I have tried keeping it open. I do not know what else to do at this point.

Re: 5.9 earthquake today

Home was Anchorage, but I also had extended stays in several villages, Seward, Kodiak, and other assorted places. It was normal to be rocked to bed by the ground shaking. Of course this was more than 30 years ago. I do not know how things are now that it is more civilized up there.

Also, those blue box (not pink or green) baby wipes from J&J will take fish off hands and should take it off your sheath.

Re: Let's talk about variations in Tang Stamps

No, that was not helpful. But thanks. What I mean is that Spyderco knives will often have variations in tang stamps, even on the same models. Sometimes it is because the stamp machine may be wearing. But there is often a difference, slightly, in fonts. The dash on Seki-City may touch, or may not tou...

Let's talk about variations in Tang Stamps

I have not seen much concentrated discussion on Spyderco tang stamp variations and I do not know that it is documented anywhere. I hope some experts will chime in. I notice that, for example, my two Manbugs have different sized tang stamping on the pile side. The difference on the mark side is evide...

Re: Manbug--Spydercos Most Awesome Knife!

I like the blade shape over the Ladybug. It is better for slicing and skinning, etc. What I would like is not a change to the Manbug, but a Superbug that is purely a Manbug stretched out to a 2.5" blade. I would want it to keep its dimension ratio and not be tall from the handle spine to the finger ...
