Re: Any blade play in the New Green Pac Salt?

Mine has the worst up/down and side to side play of any Spyderco I've ever had. It's impossible to tighten the pivot enough to take up the side play without making the knife impossible to open. Up and down blade play is something I expect, but the kind exhibited by my example is pretty extreme IMO....

Re: Any blade play in the New Green Pac Salt?

I expected some blade play after reading some of the accounts here of the first releases. I asked the dealer to check for bladeplay on mine, and they said they had two left in stock and both had play. In the end, I wanted the knife enough, that I said just send the one with the least play. When it a...

Re: RIP Tony Bose

That’s very sad to hear. Tony Bose was a giant among contemporary knifemakers.

He has left an enduring legacy in the knife world.

RIP.

Re: What did you use your Spyderco for last?

Looks great! I'd love to try growing a greater variety of hot peppers. Last year, all I planted were ghost peppers. Isn't Trinidad 3rd or 4th hottest pepper in the world? Yikes! :eek: What do you make with the peppers? Thanks Connor! Yeah I like the Ghost/Bhut Jolokia strain too - it’s about my fav...

Re: A call for help

Sorry to hear that, Abyss. I hope the symptoms are mild for you. I’ve also been checking out ‘different’ types of designs recently, as I have enough Spydies for my everyday user cutting tools. The Emerson Matriarch is pretty cool. The Seki K390 series deserves a look if you don’t have any. Did you t...

Re: Have you owned a Spyderco lockback with zero play?

My CF Chap has no perceptible vertical play either. My most recent Seki lockbacks, the K390 Dragonfly and the LC200N Pac Salt have both been disappointing in that regard. Both have very apparent lock rock if I bear down on any material, or even when cutting binding material like cardboard. My ‘test’...

Re: Left handed PM2

I haven’t tried the lefty PM2. I’ve adapted to using the standard PM2 compression lock left handed. It doesn’t feel wrong handed to me. I never really got a lefty PM2, because I didn’t want to interfere with the muscle memory I’d developed for my other PM2s, and also because I’m not that into CPM S3...

Re: Atlantic Salt in ffg LC200N - won´t it be a great platform for a "wharnie-modded general EDC"?

I’d be interested to try a combo-edge knife with forward serrations as I’ve also pondered the concept (neat how people can come to the same idea independently). Kind of curious now to look for any cheap knives that already have something similar to do testing and “feel out” this idea. Would even be...

Re: K390 FRN models - Has Seki improved the edge angles or sharpness?

Thanks to everyone sharing their perspectives and nice photos Cambertree! It's helpful and definitely sounds like Seki is doing a better job on the K390 now compared to the discontinued K390 Police4. I have never seen any other spyderco that came with as obtuse of a factory edge as that K390 G-10 P...

Re: Community Sharpening Journal

Prior to Sharpmaker, I used Fallkniven diamond/carbon stone for sharpening, where I would follow the existing bevel of the blade. This would, however, end up as convex secondary bevel, or to be more truthful, the edge was all around the place. The only steel that ended up great on the stone was LC2...

Re: Community Sharpening Journal

Reprofiled the Dragonfly on a Galley V. I used 80 grit sandpaper wrapped around the ceramic rods to hog off the steel and then finished with 400 grit paper. I'm tempted to pick up a set of CBN rods but I don't think they'll last very long when taking off this much steel. I think the Galley V is sup...
