Re: Swayback Lookout Thread

My first impressions after 30 min of ownership: Love the nylon/canvas case over the old pleather style case. Changed the clip to a 2 screw deep carry clip. The stock clip doesn't make any sense, sorry Spyderco/Mr. Slysz. The smoothest action of any spyderco I've ever owned. Fit and finish are flawl...

Re: Swayback Lookout Thread

Just chiming in with my initial impressions. I find mine flips open well. If I try to slowly open it it is difficult, but an intentional flick works well. Very nice action. Keep flicking it. As you may have read, I couldn't open mine slowly with the pad of my thumb. I had to use my tip of my thumb ...

Re: Japanese steel Seki Sprints?

OP not sure if you're aware but they've already done sprints for the Endura family in Super Blue, HAP40, & V-TOKU 2. They've also done a few exclusives with HAP40 and Super Gold. As far as laminate steels are concerned I have no issue with it. Yeah the softer outer steels get scratched easily but it...

Re: Para 3 g10 locking issue

I've only had one or two PM2/Para 3s that had a little lock stock. It was worse when I'd flick the blade open (for obvious reasons) but it went away after awhile.

Re: Swayback Lookout Thread

By the way, I took some behind the edge measurements. I get .0175". Not bad considering the blade stock thickness

Re: Swayback Lookout Thread

FWIW, I didn't really mean to sound negative or bum anybody out about the Swayback. Just being honest about my first impressions. Like I said, it's a nice knife it just doesn't thrill me like I was hoping it would. I have no plans to get rid of it at this point. I'll keep it around and see if it gr...

Re: Swayback Lookout Thread

I just got home and opened mine. It's nice but not sure about it What are you not sure about? Just wondering. I guess after all the anticipation for this one I'm feeling underwhelmed by it. I have a lot of Ti frame locks and the Swayback doesn't really thrill me considering the price. I can't open ...

Re: What's Spyderco's Consensus Grail Knife?

The forum’s consensus? Don’t ask me. I can’t even say which among my accumulated Spydies is my favorite... I'm the same. I have a hard time deciding which one to put in my pocket each day. At one time the Fluted Titanium Native 5 was pretty much a grail for me. I have one now so grail achieved. I g...

Nah, that was the CruCarta Shaman.
Agree. It wasn't even really a "grail" for me but apparently it was for a lot of people. I really like it now that I have one. I have that one and the 4V, plus a bunch of different knives with REX 45. So I didn't even consider getting the REX 45 Shaman

Heads up,

I just saw that SNK has approx. 150 4V PM2s and 20 Manix 2s available. Act quick!
Please post links with these notices.
A post on their FB page came up on my feed. I knew there wouldn't be much time. You can do a little of the work yourself

Dangit! I only saw the PM2 alert thread until just now, so I didn’t know the Manix was also available! :( There were only 20 of those. It was already sold out by the time I posted my alert. :-( Thanks. I just hope that St Nick’s does a Manix LW in DLC 4V and dark red. I'm hoping they do a M2 LW too...
