Re: What Spyderco is in your pocket today??

It's an older black G-10 version in VG-10. We're working on a lite wgt, so I'm carrying. sal Awesome on the LW Caly! What steel are you thinking for it? And I have the Sliverax today! I find it getting better and better everyday. It beats out my PM2 and M2 KC exclusive with Cruwear and CF. I'm just...

Re: Quick 52100 patina setup

Re: Let's get hyped for the Amalgam!

Gundamaniac, Congrats on the entire process! Really cool story! I love my Sliverax, and it still flips very well for me. One thing that looks like will lead to better flipping on the Amalgam is that the flipper tab is placed more in front of the pivot than what the Sliverax is. This should allow for...

Benchmade Bluelube! My local knife store has some on hand and I've bought it from Knives Ship free for about $10! Works well!

Re: Spyderco Parata

Re: Official Sliverax Discussion Thread

anyone find either a pattern to do 3d milling myself, or a supplier of custom scales for this awesome knife? Carbon/G10 is nice, but I want to make one with natural micarta and don't have the setup to do it right myself. Also looking for flat screws like the PM2 has. and what about a sprint run wit...

Re: Sliverax question

I was wondering how long it would take EvilD to weigh in! :D I prefer my Sliverax for EDC compared to my Manix and PM2. It has more blade length, slices just as well on my experience, and I love the deep carry wire clip that allows it to slide easily in and out of the pocket. Then the fidget factor ...

Re: Production Cruwear

I like it! I have recently acquired the KC exclusive Manix with CF and Cruwear, so I don't have a long term report. However I am extremely pleased with how stainless it is. I initially heard its non stainless and babied it, then started reading how it's along the D2 lines of non stainless, but only ...

Re: First Knife of 2018

I don't NEED a knife, but the DLC M4 Manix would be absolutely incredible. Or the Parata to check out the Stop Lock with the Caly like handle!

Re: Spyderco Parata

The lock lifts up and out real smoothly and easily and operates similarly to a compression or CBBL in action. Really a one thumb function. I'd say even easier than the Axis lock on the particular model that was exhibited at BLADE. I think it pivots towards the blade when going up. YES!!!!! So excit...

Liquid Cobra also said the Ergos are great, so there is more affirmation. Can you speak briefly about how the Stop Lock works?

As soon as I thought my Spyderco collection was complete... hats off to Paul again! Looks amazing. The thing that intrigues me the most is the first ever Spyderco with the Stop Lock! How could I not get it???? My main wish... Cru Wear or S30V steel rather than VG-10. Not bad... but not everything I ...

Re: Any chance another run of tuffs will be made?

So for a long time Spyderco fanboy, how often do they redo old designs and resurrect then? I thought I remember hearing that when it's retired, it's retired. Am I wrong? The Tuff is awesome and would be a sweet piece! This is true. I’ve heard this before too. I better buy as many as I can then befo...

Re: Taichung Sprint Runs

I like the idea of Sliverax in M390/204p. I haven't handled M4, so I can't really weigh in. I like the idea of stainless for my fidget toy!
