Just for my clarification and understanding: Though the Leaf Storm may be an extreme example of the choil, is that what you would do to make the blade more aesthetically pleasing and able to rid the recurve?
Yes, if I bother with it at all.

Re: Gayle Bradley 2 - So close to perfection...

Okay, so I've owned the knife for a little over a week, haven't even thought about carrying another knife. My aggravation with the sharpening choil and the recurve has lessened considerably (still think the choil should be centered on the plunge grind, but not worrying about it anymore.) A couple of...

Re: The Advocate - An Official Statement from Spyderco

Yes disappointing. I spoke with them and they said they are short-staffed at warehouse in VA and couldn't fulfill the request on the order. I would ship it back COD and stop payment on my credit card. I have a low tolerance for being lied to. Tell me up front, we won't do that, no problem. Lie abou...

@curlyhairedboy, here's a new video, showing compression lock manipulation in different ways, opening action pushbutton and lightswitch style with various methods with both hands, and detent-free flipper action against gravity with my weak hand for good measure haha. https://youtu.be/zjnJNNE4F6U As...

Re: The Kick

AFAIK, the entire exposed portion of the tang is the ricasso. So, while it would be part of the ricasso, I'd call that specific spot on the ricasso of a midlock, backlock, or slipjoint's blade the kick. On the knives mentioned, it has a function, which is to keep the blade edge from touching the lo...

Re: More K390?

I've never used K390, can someone comment on it's toughness? On paper it looks like it may be trading significant toughness for wear resistance, making me question why I would want this over S110V, which in addition to great wear resistance, is very corrosion resistant and has reasonable toughness o...

Thanks - does anyone besides me wish it wasnt in the way i find when i sharpen i want to go downstairs and grind it off What is it for? It's a mixed bag. I personally would prefer a sharpening choil centered at the plunge grind, but there is no doubt that a sharpening choil can get hung in your wor...

? for Spyderco regarding flipper design

Why hasn't Spyderco made any flippers with the standard bushing pivot? Judging by the way it works on knives like the PM2 (very flickable, usually wears in to free drop, no side play, robust design) it would seem like a solid way to make a flipper. Is there a reason this won't work well or is it jus...

Re: P3 S90V CF

i guess...i can understand long d/c models etc but cmon for a sprint that just released? thats definitely price gouging How do you think they manage to have long discontinued models? It's not price gouging. This sprint run isn't a life necessity - fresh water and bread after a major storm or even a...

Re: Let's get hyped for the Amalgam!

Flipping action and compression lock manipulation for those who are concerned with these aspects of the knife. I'm right handed and am able to easily manipulate the lock with either hand. I can also easily open the knife with the flipper using either hand. The action is nice, good enough that I can...

Re: SharpMaker Ultra Fine Rods or Leather Strop??

Hey Jase, if you have new Spydercos and you are sharpening on the 40 degree setting then you are already creating a microbevel. Just keep sharpening like that until your bevel starts to get too wide and then re-read this thread and decide how you want to go about reprofiling. :spyder: Ok, so the qu...
