Re: New to Spyderco/forum, and help request

I have multiple para 3s and the action is always unique.
Some where perfect from th beginning others needed time/use to get smoother.

Fake ones will have a bad blade steel - dull easy, bad to sharpen.

I also never heard of para 3 fakes.

Re: 2020 hopes and dreams

Dragonfly LC200N yellow
Para3 lightweight Maxamet, LC200N

And something for Wartstein!
Endura ffg SE (with Endela SE serration pattern)

I am sorry for him that he has to wait so long for his dream knife and I get new Para3s every reveal.

Re: Earth brown/dlc or Blue/dlc bento para 2?

Blue.
s35vn Is similar to s30v.
M390 is a steel you should have experienced.

Please do not upscale the blade thickness.
Keep it lightweight.

Re: Sharpening

Not let it get too unsharp.
Then it's easy with the Sharpmaker.

Re: Which Lil Native?

Thickness is the same. Remember its a TANK. It's a Para 3 but shrunken only horizontally. The para 3 lightweight feel (and is also) lighter. The ricasso also digs a big in your finger when close the compression lock. Small backlocks are available, both have thinner blades (chaparral, dragonfly). But...

Re: Military 3 vs delica.

Para 3 lightweight. If you can wait a bit get the SPY27 cobalt-blue version. I also recommend the Rex45. Both were released in reveal 4 a few weeks ago. They will be awesome. Sage 5 lightweight should also be a perfect knife. Did not had it in hand. Lil Native is a tank in a tiny package. Comes as b...

Re: Siren v/s Spydiechef

I definitely recommend experiencing a compression lock. You have to use it to see if you like or not. Honestly, I would not buy a LC200N folder at the moment. Maybe a Siren (guard looks too big to me) or the Native (too small for you). I bought the Waterway, but it gets not much use. I would wait fo...
