Re: Unpopular opinions

I dislike the wire clip No love here for blacked out blades S30v is a perfectly good steel I would choose just about any steel before S110v, yes even 8cr13mov! Not a big fan of carbon fibre scales... Except for the cf over g10, that stuff is great! Looks decent, plenty of grip with a nice feel Backl...

Re: First Impressions of SPY27 Steel

Had my spy27para3 for a few weeks now. Used for my typical edc tasks, packages, cardboard for recycling, kitchen, light yard work, nothing particularly heavy but stuff that left my 110v an utter chipped mess and turned my vg10 into a butter knife in similar amount of time. Steels like s30v, 35vn, d2...

Re: Lynch Northwest Wire Clip Replacement Deep Carry Clip

Forgive me for saying that I hope never to shake your hand. 165 pounds grip? I'm guessing that a gorilla wouldn't want to measure grip strength against you. Lol! Funny thing is I’m not a big guy, 5’8” 190lbs. But hand strength runs in my family. For example, We discovered way back when my sister wa...

Re: Lynch Northwest Wire Clip Replacement Deep Carry Clip

Yes thank you Sal for both reading the posts and taking issues seriously. I find all wire clips will do this, but on some models such as the Kapara, it sits in a spot where it’s unlikely to happen often in my grip. On the Para 3 it’s in a spot where it happened all the time. I tend to grip things t...

Re: Swayback Lookout Thread

Mine just arrived minutes ago! But already I can say I love it! As a lefty it is ideal to flick open, plenty of access to the hole and even opening it with my right hand it’s just fine....... I’m confused by opening complaints? Honestly not sure what's happening with them. Mine was just plain stuck...

Re: Lynch Northwest Wire Clip Replacement Deep Carry Clip

I noticed the twisting more on the Para 3 LW than I ever had on the Dragonfly or the Manix, but I also found that applying just a touch of purple lactate and tightening the clip screw real good was sufficient to stop it for the most part. One of the things I like about the stock P3LW clip is it has...

Re: Para3 - CPM-SPY27 now shipping!

Holy crap is this an improvement! This Lynch clip not only solves my problem shown in my previous post, but it’s 100 times more comfortable and looks better. I can barely feel it at all and can’t make it dig into my hand if I try. It doesn’t carry any different but is less noticeable as it’s not as ...

Re: Maybe small knives are not TOTALLY awful

Personally I like my small knife to be a nice traditional slip-joint in my back pocket, very often a GEC. Something a bit larger in my left front, (I’m a lefty) pocket. Usually a Spyderco. Since it’s arrived, I've been carrying a small for me, Spy27 Para3. Behind the choil, it’s a nice 3 1/2 finger ...

Re: Do you always use grease on your knives or is something

However one single drop of oil will destroy a classic slip joint with Brass liners when stored for long periods. I would say get all the oil off them and use nothing but Ren wax Can somebody explain the physics (or chemistry) of this statement for me? What is it in oil that is harmful to knives wit...

Re: Do you always use grease on your knives or is something less viscous OK to?

Here in the middle of Canada, we get -40 temps, grease or heavy oil can make a knifes action less than desireable. I like to use fishing reel oil. Something called Quantum hot sauce, I believe is what I’ve got right now and it works great.

Re: Forum search turned up nothing: How do you lubricate the washers on Manix 2 LW?

So, sometimes I need to add a drop of oil but don’t feel like taking the whole knife apart to clean and lube. What I do is loosen the pivot, then with an appropriate sized torx, (because I use a multi bit folding set) I wedge it in sideways, between the scales to separate them slightly. Then a drop ...
