Hi and thanks. I am really hoping I get the sharpmaker with all accessories for a high school graduation gift. Does anyone think that is weird?

Do you aim to print out Delica parts after making the 3d model?

Short story: I returned the knife because it was faulty and the maker was a butt hole. Long story: I got the knife and was never able to use it. The detent was too weak to hold the blade in. The maker says he uses a weak detent by default because that is what most people want. I sent it back for th...

It's just a touchy situation. To be honest, it bothers me that any time something like this is announced on any forum where you have to be a member to be able to buy, you get a huge rush of new members flooding the forums and you never see them contribute anything and after the sale is gone they're...

Is there a reason that the bevels on some tips are wider than the bevel on the rest of the blade and other blades have even bevels the whole length of the blade? Is the even beveled one easy to achieve on a sharpmaker?

I have large hands too, It just takes a little practice and a lot of fondling.
That sounds like fun. I just want to be sure it wouldn't harm the edge.

I had a friend who, on arrival at the airport, remembered he had not emptied his pocket before leaving home. Seeing a potted plant in the main concourse, he buried his trusty Spyderco (don't know which one) in the dirt. When returning to the same airport, he dug it up, brushed it off, and went home...

Try holding down the backlock so the blade is loose and then it might flick.

That's good. I suppose that means flicking it open and closed won't do it either?

Sort of. There's a specific protrusion on the lower side of the tang, just behind the edge, that makes contact with some portion of the lock mechanism. On most Spyderco midlocks the location of that contact point is behind the lockbar pivot, which makes it impossible for the edge of the blade to to...

Closed spyderco

Not much of a question, but when a back-lock spydie is in closed position, the "heel" of the blade (the blocky part that attaches the pivot to the edge) is resting on the inside of the back-lock, as opposed to the edge of the blade resting on the inside of the handle, right?

How common is it for the bevel (on a ffg) to be a little (.25 mm or less) higher on one side than the other, including the tip? Would such a thing affect sharpening or anything else?

Hi Scorpion, Perhaps some insight? The knifemakers that we work with in Seki City, Japan as a whole are among the best in the world. Most don't think about the fact that much of this work is done by hand. That means crew are fitting, drilling, polishing, sharpening, etc. It is very labor intensive ...

Seki City quality control

This isn't a rant, I just wanted to ask, has anyone had any issues whatsoever regarding FRN VG-10 knives made in Seki City? Specifically, little big knives. I'm talking not-quite-perfect centering, uneven grinds, dullness, and scratches/blemishes. And what the heck were you guys doing to the other t...

Boo! I'm a ghost.

Yup, I know this thread is a decade old, and it can die again in a bit. I just wanted to ask, has anyone had any issues whatsoever regarding FRN VG-10 knives made in Seki City?

Common guys, it's not so bad. Just take a dremmel and grind off the spines of your blades as well as the pointy parts in the grip. If your spydercos no longer function after that, that might just increase your chances of getting it past the average uninformed airline idiot. But probably not. Yup, I ...
