Re: Reinhold Rhino Update

I can already tell I’m gonna want to put an mxg clip on mine. Does he do one for that hole pattern? Dang I guess I just assumed the standard ones would fit. I don’t think they will. If he does one for Benchmade that should fit. I have an old BM Mini-Grip deep carry clip and the hole pattern lined-u...

Re: Reinhold Rhino Update

My Rhino just arrived from the CS and it’s beautiful! Even though it’s a small knife, it fits my hand perfectly in a couple different grips. I love the ergonomics, the blade, the handle material and the blade steel. For me it’s better than I expected. It’s a wonderful design and pictures don’t do it...

Re: Show your mods!

I anodized the presentation side of my Ti Mil shown here with my Knife Works exclusive Military. I’m using a couple of old 18 volt laptop power supplies. I connect them in series to get 36 volts, which creates the light blue color of my Mantra in the previous post.

Re: Show your mods!

Anodized my Mantra twice and the purple is at 18 volts dc and the blue is 36 vdc. I kept the blue color and I’m pretty happy with it since it was my first time anodizing anything.

Re: Lil' Nilakka Roll Call!! (Flash Batch Database)

#1005 here. I love this knife. My only disappointment is that I didn’t get the flash batch/product guide/warranty information brochure. I wouldn’t mind if this was a normal production knife, but this is special. Does anyone know if the brochure should have been in the pouch? I emailed Christy at Sp...

Re: Show your mods!

Here’s a shot of my newly dyed Cruwear Para 3, used RitMore Racing Red. Hats off to Attila who posted his results and instructions in another thread. Shown next to my M390 PM2.

Re: When your first RIT dye job goes bad....

Thanks to Attila for the instructions and inspiration. I dyed my Cruwear Para 3 racing red last night. Here’s a picture with my M390 PM2. I used a little more dye and left them in the solution for about 30 minutes, but I don’t think the additional 15 minutes made much difference.

Re: Show your mods!

Thank you Jazz. I like your purple Delica and the black with the Damascus looks like it was made for it. I’ve really been wanting a wharnie Delica. I’m a hands on type and discovered a long time ago to not be afraid to work on things. It blows my friends’ minds when I get a really nice guitar and i...

Re: Spyderco 2017 Lists: Delivered & Upcoming

RamZar that’s a good point about the price, I didn’t even notice that. I’d probably get a brown one with the thought that I could get the S110V any time, but if I could only have 1, S110V.

Re: Show your mods!

The glossy scales on my Chaparral were getting fine scratches, so I sanded them with 2000 grit sandpaper. The scales are more of a satin feel now and scratches don’t show up as much. Touch-ups are easy. Also, I colored the outside of the liners black which makes the colors of the raffir noble stand ...

Re: Spyderco 2017 Lists: Delivered & Upcoming

On a recent internet search I found a couple of links for a brown G10 Para 3 in S35VN, C223GPBN. Neither of the links I checked had a photo, but it looked like a future model. One link is a for a distributor and the other is a retailer. I wouldn’t mind a Para 3 in that configuration. Has anyone else...

Re: Para 3 Cruwear in stock..

I finally got the order cancellation from KC as well, 3 weeks after I asked Spyderco and they told me the Para 3 Cruwear shipments were already complete. KC assured me several times they were still getting them in, even though I knew no more were being sent out. I suspect they kept the preorders ope...

Re: PM2 Red G-10 M390 at DLT Trading?!?!

I had one in the mailbox Friday. My first thought when I opened the box was “beautiful, which may be an odd description of a knife, but it is. Perfect in every way and since this is my first M390 blade I can’t wait to put it through its paces. I missed the Cruwear Para 3, so I was determined not to ...

Re: Show your mods!

Jazz you seem to be a prolific modder. I can appreciate making things work better for you. I picked up a Positron recently and due to problems getting to the lock I took a dremel to the scale and opened it up a little. It’s much easier to depress the lock now, even though it doesn’t look dramatic.

He pulled out a like new, never carried, never sharpened, perfect condition Merlin and gave it to me :D . We bought those back in the early to mid 90s for $15 brand new. I boug...
