Re: Do you ever wish you only had 1 knife?

Good topic! I do not want to reduce to one. Many have different tasks and reason. Similar in kitchen. One for good prep, one for eating steak or for bread and butter. One for slicing bread. Only one could work but why compromise so much in life? Maybe you can shrink down to a few specific for differ...

Re: Spyderco flippers

>>>3 deployment methods
You have many more...
Flipper: push button / light button
Flick: thumb / middle finger / hold knife reverse
Pinky flip is not manageable for me due to small hands

And the left and right hand ;)

Spydie flippers are real fidget toys :D

Re: Small Knives VS Large Knives

I am aligned with ZMW.

Need a knife not often outside my house.

In Europe even a small to mid size can raise eyebrows in the office. Smaller means lighter and easier to carry in the pocket.

Re: What were your first five Spydercos and why?

The first 5 Spydies did not matter.
Persistence
Resilience
Ladybug
Honeybee
Grasshopper
PM2 was the bait, hooked by PM3.

Where I live its hard to hold Spydies in my own hand. The few shops have only very limited models.

Re: Para 3 as first Spyderco?

You can protect the blade with tape. Being very careful anf slow helps also. For my Spydercos I use Sharpmaker only. For kitchen knives stones or diamond. Please be aware that the black DLC blade gets "dirty" soon and it stays that way. I like the look of new black blades but for EDC i prefer non-co...

Re: Para 3 as first Spyderco?

ALex, was the fixed blade after sharpening sharper as before?
I normally slice paper to check the sharpness.

S110v steel should be maintained to not being too dull. Otherwise its not easy got bring it back to sharp.

Which version of para 3 caught your eyes?

Re: Para 3 as first Spyderco?

Hi and welcome,

I love Para 3.
Perfect EDC size, super open and close action.

S110V is supersharp and better then S30V.

I recommend also a Sharpmaker for maintenance.

Do you have any knive / sharpening experience?

This is my current favorite edc.

Sliverax: if i want to be more playful due to so msny open variations.

Dragonfly 2 H1 PE: more discreet and lightweight

Vic. Rambler: during travel
Legal everywhere except airplanes.

Re: Finally got a stiff PM2...

My Para 3 S110V was very stiff.
After a few days playing it improved a lot.

Try loosen the pivot screw a tiny little bit.
Oil could help also.

Play with it 1 week and if it doesn't improve do the steps above.

Salt DF.

I can use push button and lightswitch flipping with ease. Personally I am more trained in push button because my Kershaw Chill works best with push button. Beside, flicking with thumb and middle finger works also great. Gravity drop (open blade with hard downwards motion and a sudden stop) works als...

Re: Stuck Lanyard Tube

I could not remove the tube from the metal bars at my para 3 cru wear.
But i must not. You can remove the scales also with installed tube.

A blue one will definitely look cool!
Pics please if available.
