Re: Anyone else strop there folders?

I've been thinking about getting the knives plus one, the green one on a block, they claim it's one of the best? Now that I'm getting into more exotic steels (thanks spyderco) it might not be a bad idea? I just got that one in the mail the other day, it already has the compound on the leather and i...

Re: An observation regarding H1

Well from my understanding heat has nothing to do with this steel at all as it is not heat treated like other steels. The work hardening on the other hand is how it is hardened. I haven't used mine enough to get experience this phenomenon yet myself.

Re: Do you play with your knife in the car.

Yup! I try to do it responsibly so as not to endanger myself or look like I'm on my way to murder someone, but I'm sure it happens. :o Live life on the edge! Pun totally intended. Totally made me laugh. I think the same thing. Hope no one calls the cops on the psycho with knife in the truck. Haha I...

Re: Do you play with your knife in the car.

I do. My steering wheel has a little gouge in it where I flicked my manix a little too close to it and the blade tip stabbed a hole in it.

Re: PM2 red Locktite in pivot?

I haven't had my newest Military apart to know but if that pivot has red locktite in the pivot then I welcome it. I've never had a folder come with a better dialed in pivot action and KEEP that pivot action over extended use. They usually loosen up with use but so far after a couple months of daily...

Soldering iron or wood burner to the screw head and a wiha torx should take care of it.

Re: Red loctite

This is from Charlynn in warranty. I asked several months ago. "We use loctite 243 (the blue one) or 262 (the red one) depending on the screw." I've purchased several Paramilitary 2 sprints in the past few months. Of the ones I've disassembled, every single one had red loctite on the body screws, b...

Re: Ebay Pm2

After looking more closely at the picture it appears there is a little gap at the back of the cutting edge. That's making me pretty sure there fake. Anyone else more knowledgeable than myself want to chime in?

Ebay Pm2

Hey guys found these on ebay. Guy says there from an estate sale. Are they fakes? I suspect so but I'm not sure.

Re: Best Value in a Spyderco

All of them. Spyderco has the best bang for your buck of any knife brand! Compare knives with similar materials and functions to other brands and the Spyderco will be cheaper every time.

Re: Silicon Nitride or Zirconia (Ceramic) ball for CBBL?

After doing this modification I wont carry a Manix 2 that can be disassembled without doing it. I wish the lw version could be disassembled so I could do this to them. I have researched all the data on loads and shock and such. The knife will break long before the ball does. Theres a guy on here som...

Re: Silicon Nitride or Zirconia (Ceramic) ball for CBBL?

Very simple modification to make. I have done this on mine as well. No more lock stick and glossy smooth action. Zero friction. You can find them on Amazon for a few bucks. Size is 3/16. Take the old one out drop the knew one in. I would post a link but I'm not sure if that's allowed.

Re: Is this normal? S110V Edge Retention + Bearing cutting a track on Manix 2

The line on your bearing track doesn't look all that abnormal to me. I have Three M2's all with that same steel. All have some type of line there. I would imagine it is mostly oil that you could wipe off with a cotton swab if you try. But there is likely some slight amount of wear going on which I t...

Re: PM2 S110V directly from Amazon fake?

Its bad enough to sell fakes but it really pisses me off when they try to pass them off as real. At least if your going to sell a fake then list it as such.
Your not only selling shady merchandise, your lying about it.

Re: PM2 S110V directly from Amazon fake?

I think Spyderco does not sell directly through Amazon. We have an advantage in PM2 S110V steel. There are almost no fakes that I've seen on ebay for exemple. This fact is I think because of the higher demand for S30V which has a lot of fakes, clones ecc. But in spite of this fact, the most secure ...
