Re: Very Disappointed

I bought two of the Wiha Torx Drivers: from BHQ and knifecenter.com
Boker Wiha Toolkit Torx Bit Driver Part #09BO700
Buy two of them: you may need to hold and/or turn from both sides.
Not cheap, but you get what you pay for !.

Re: Spyderco Salt Knives as Anti-Shark Defense Tools?

Has anybody used a Spyderco Salt knife to cut up a shark for cooking purposes ???
Shark skin is like sandpaper. Good luck if ANY knife is used on a shark for self defense!!!!

Re: DLC M4 Para 3 with Natural G-10

I'm not sure , but it seems to cost $33.95 USD for a knife only, shipped Priority Intl. to Australia.
Other orders I've made for a knife plus a few extras, have cost more.
Hope that helps ?

$30 for tracked shipping to Canada is more than in willing to pay, so that shut my order down today
You think your shipping cost is a bit much ??!!
$46.00 AUD to Australia !
It's a matter of how bad you "want" something.

Re: Ebay Fakes - What do you think?

Quality is getting better all the time BUT the steel quality is always suspect.The quality of washers and other small parts is always doubtful.
I own about 4x Chinese copies for reference and approx 30 ? Genuine Spydies in my collection so far ....!!

Re: PM2 Surface Rust and Disassembly

Judicious use of a heat gun and a set of Wiha drivers should be a big help when taking things apart.

Re: Spyderco Smock

This looks like a very interesting knife- design wise/features.
If I'm the only interested party , then I'll take 2 or 3 of them.
