Re: Pacific Salt One Year Later - A Big Surprise / Sleeper EDC Knife

I really enjoy my pacific salt. Just wish they could make it ffg. Then it would be perfect. Hoping for a ffg lc200n version one day. :)

Re: Question for Michael Janich

Its barely wider at the widest point but the stock delica tapers down pretty quickly while the wharnie has the curve. I guess well see as mine will arrive shortly.

Re: Question for Michael Janich

That looks awesome! My only grip was how wide it sticks out from the handle. Could we see a picture of it closed? Mine arrives tomorrow. I wanna drop it in the mail to you for that mod!? :)

Re: New Delica Wharncliffe-chip in edge

This is the kind of thing that drives me nuts when I open a new knife box. This isn't a knock on Spyderco as I realize mistakes happen, but I see this type of thing on a fairly regular basis from ALL knife companies. No way this should make it in a box and sent out to a customer. I'm not sure I wou...

Re: Manix 2 Questions

All M2 lightweight are pinned except pivot, Sounds like you want s110v. Excellent edge retention and corrosion resistance. All the Manix's I've handled required two fingers to close easily. Steve Ketchen Sketchen Scales makes nice manix scales. S110v lightweight is my personal favorite.

Re: Out of the Spyderco knives you own, which one is your favorite?

I've had some of the higher end models but I must say my favorite is the delica. Perfect edc. If I want a little more blade then it is the endura. You can beat them imho.

Re: Delica 4 fake or old stock?

I watched a couple of videos (including Nick Shabazz's vid) but still managed to mess up the spacer alignment. Do you have a link to the recommended reassembly method? Installation of the lockbar starts at about the 21:30 mark. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=MERI8A17jjM This is the same method I'm t...

Re: Delica 4 fake or old stock?

You need to assemble the knife entirely other than the lock bar. You put the lockbar in last. You insert the lockbar and then press the d-bolt through. You can find some videos on youtube showing this method. Its actually fairly easy if you do it this way. I watched a couple of videos (including Ni...

Re: Delica 4 fake or old stock?

Thanks for looking. Does the logo etching look like this one as well? Tang markings are stamped on both of mine. Pink VG-10 one in the same font and size as the one you're worried about. Green ZDP one in a slightly larger, more widely spaced font. When they use to stamp them dies would eventually w...

Re: Delica 4 fake or old stock?

Wow lol. I bought a used Endura once that had the backspace tabs not engaged with the scales. I had great trouble reassembling my Delica. Aligning all the pins while trying to prevent the spring bar from jumping out of place is very hard. I thought I managed but now I see that one of the spacer tab...

Re: Delica 4 fake or old stock?

The fact that you can see the typical VG-10 "waves" in the steel on the knife is question indicates that it's probably authentic. It's unlikely that a counterfeiter would use VG-10, and I've never seen another steel exhibit that wavy quality. Not sure what you mean by the waves but the blade finish...

Re: Delica 4 fake or old stock?

The engraving is the old style and authentic. Pretty sure both are real. How did he manage to mess up reassembly? He got the liner mixed up and switched sides. This probably wouldn't affect function but I switched them back. He managed to pin the little tabs on the backspacer between the scales ins...

Re: Delica 4 fake or old stock?

Have no desire to take any of mine apart, but can tell you that, with the knife closed, the lock notches in the blades of my CC#'d ZDP-189 and pink Sprint Run VG-10 Delica 4's both look like the one on the right. For that reason, I'd vote for it being authentic. As a side note, I think returning a ...

Re: Delica 4 fake or old stock?

Yeah I was trying to avoid going through the hassle of sending it in. Maybe someone from Spyderco or a forum member who knows more can chime in. I think its legit due to little things like the finish on the blade and the liners and hardware appear to all be identical. The seller would accept it back...

Delica 4 fake or old stock?

I recently purchased this Delica 4 from someone second hand. Upon receiving it I began to question it authenticity. I have several other Delica 4's and this one is slightly different. The ones I have are recent production. I believe this one is older. I'm wondering if this is just a slightly older o...
