Re: Anything that can replace Chaparral?

Should you do the mod, I´d be really interested in your opinion on it if you like to share it. Move that lock bar spring and it will be like a new knife. Hey Wartstein- I did this mod with my FRN Chaparral and I agree with MichaelScott, it really made it like a whole new knife for me that I thoroug...

Thanks, I really like that knife! I would love to see Spyderco use those materials on a Chaparral and make a “modern” knife to go with my GEC

Re: 2019 seconds sale

Wish I could go but won’t be able to.. I’d love to pick up a few models, especially when I see all the prices that they go for :/

Re: Micarta Chaparral

I would love it if they made a Chap along the lines of my GEC 77 Barlow.. micarta with a bolster and everything with a nice subtle radius.

Re: Micarta Chaparral

I would prefer a linen micarta over a canvas micarta for the Chap- green, natural, or maroon would all be nice colors. Wood would look nice on this knife too, and I’m kind of surprised they haven’t used pakkawood yet.. I think either wood or linen micarta handles may also look nice with a titanium b...

Re: Swick 5 ETA?

I can’t wait for this one to come out! I’m very excited to try this design and the fact that it’s in LC200N will be killer!

Re: lc200n production

I would love a Manix 2 LW, Chap LW, Para 3 LW, Ladybug FRN, and a Dragonfly 2 FRN in LC200N! I wouldn’t be opposed to any other models as well but those are on the top of my wish list.

Re: Flipper musings (Mantra 2)

Just remember to be smart about it. Go slow, take a little off and put it back to together and try it. You can even set the lock bar & ball on the hole to see how it's changed as you're doing it. I'll be interested to hear how you do. What I don't want to hear is that you got carried away trying to...

Re: Flipper musings (Mantra 2)

Yep, after fixing my Sliverax I took my Mantra apart with the intent to open the detent hole a little on that one. Turns out the detent ball was just really flat. I flipped it around and it much improved. I ended up putting it back together without opening the hole. No need for it at this point. I’...

Re: Flipper musings (Mantra 2)

I bought one recently too because of the price and I LOVE the design on this one. The action on my example is mediocre, the detent is on the weak side and it is easy to fail when flipping. I can get it to fire hard if I load up the flipper tab though. Do other people have this issue? If I could make...

It would be cool to have ivory FRN with an abalone inlay to keep it classy, and I would also like to see the above co...

I’m in for a Delica, Dragonfly, and Ladybug no matter if it’s solid or laminated. That being said I find that I do like the look of the lamination line and I don’t mind scratches.. ;)
