Re: competition for the Para 3?

I recommend the review video from nick shabazz.

Consider also that the Para 3 lightweight will be available in different steels...

Re: competition for the Para 3?

Para 3 lightweight
Lil Native (a small tank)

If I remember correct, Sal said that a Lil Native lightweight is in the works.

I suggest also the Dragonfly.

Re: Para3 lightweight stiff

Hi.

Where exactly is it stiff?
Only at open or close also?
Try to wash it in soap water. The blow dry and lube with oil.
Open and close it 200 times....

Normally it should get smoother after a few weeks of use.

Re: Folders for food prep?

I use a ffg endura. And a mantra 3.
Mainly to use them and to enjoy cutting with a Spyderco.

I am afraid to say that a kitchen knife is better to use due to the much thinner blade stock...

Re: couple sharpening questions

Hi Edward. Welcome here. I normally use the 40 degree slots. It's easier to sharpen only the edge with that. Please use a sharpie on your edge and see where material is removed at each slot. Also keep the rods clean. For kitchen knives I use the rods only or a benchstone - freehanded or on a table. ...

Re: Siren Update?

Also some other EU distributors have it listed as January 2020.
If it's not in stock it will not be delivered before Christmas.

I would gift another knife (waterway!) or a "voucher".

If he loves Spydies he will understand the delay.

Re: Are you done with 2019, Spydie wise? What do you wish for in 2020?

Chances are bad the Para 3 LW all black arrives in the next few weeks.
So that's it for 2019.

2020: hopefully some special steels Para 3 LW will be available.
Lil chokwe might be bought.
Hoping for some surprise of the Spyderco team.
