Re: Looking for anyone in the US who isn't getting a BladeHQ Dodo

Thanks for the PM's guys! :D Still no day and time yet? Man, this one is taking forever. :( Looks like some fellow members may be willing to help out. Hope you are able to get one! Yeah, this one seems to take a bit longer than most of their exclusives. Then again, I don't mind all too much in this...

Looking for anyone in the US who isn't getting a BladeHQ Dodo

As the title states, I’m on the lookout for someone from the US who won’t be getting him/herself the upcoming BladeHQ M4 Dodo. Some of you may know BladeHQ only accepts credit cards as a payment method and I simply don’t have one nor do I know anyone in my direct surroundings who does. (they’re not ...

Re: Lost knife

Ouch... Sorry to hear that.
Never had this happen to me with a Spyderco, but losing a Victorinox Huntsman Plus over a decade ago still annoys me.

(if you got there by car, it might be worth checking under the seats; I've read about several people finding their lost knife under there)

Re: Regrinding the Nirvana?

There has to be something corrosive down in the pores that hasn't come off yet. It needs a good detergent soap and hot water wash followed by drying then sealing the air away by a good wax like Rennisance wax. I've been hearing a lot of good things about renaissance wax; might have to give that a g...

Re: Regrinding the Nirvana?

Carry a $500 knife? Like to use it? It’s your knife, but the best case is it doesn’t get stained, scratched, lost, etc. Or — God forbid — taken by the TSA. I get that some people really enjoy the craftsmanship in knives at this price point. I get it. But unless the price just isn’t something you th...

Regrinding the Nirvana?

I reckon I should just accept the fact that my Nirvana is doomed to show more and more (surface) rust. All of my Spydies are cared for and not even my M4 models have ever shown a speck of rust. I know others have complained about similar issues when using their Nirvana for a little while, so I've ke...

You can. Just order $125 worth of stuff :)

Re: BladeHQ M4 Jade Dodo

As some of you might've seen, I asked for help in picking up this sweet little sprint. MacLaren was kind enough to reach out and get an extra one to ship my way upon release :) Seems like BladeHQ is limiting sales to 1 per customer... (didn't notice the warning before, so this might've been a recent...

Re: Really Spyderco ... 5.2 oz for the Emphasis ?!

I prefer carrying a somewhat hefty knife like the original Kris/Persian, Sage 4, LionSpy, Mamba, etc. over lightweights.
Long story short, I'm probably getting one (Efficient hasn't arrived yet, so don't have any baseline yet).

**** those are nice!
the checkering alone on the police model is impressive and must have taken forever.

Glad you like them!
And yeah, checkering by hand is a good way to spend quite a lot of time! :p

Re: Filed Spydies?

One of my Police's has some nice filework to it. It has filework done on the spine to add some jimping and the round hole was chamfered: https://i.imgur.com/ZkjC6qG.jpg Other than that the lockbar was given some jimping for added grip and a tactile feedback of where it is (since it doesn't have the...

Re: Spydroid

This is actually the first time i use something Spyderco related on my phone, believe it or not, and it was simply because opening the Spyderco app made the screen/phone look like a Spyderco box :) It does look pretty sweet! I tend to use the same wallpaper throughout the lifetime of a phone, but I...

Re: What to do with chipped corners on Sharpmaker rods?

Ascending fine grits of wet sandpaper seem to do the trick for me thus far. It's definitely an annoyance having to deal with the chips, but you can sand them out a couple of times before having to replace them. (haven't replaced mine yet) Just be careful you only remove the necessary amount; you don...
