Re: Taking apart knives

It's simple. You live in the USA and I live over the ocean. We have a metric system for the thread on the screws here, so the screws just won't fit in. I can find the same-size screws, but the step of the thread would be different. Metric system. Understand? My bad I forgot that the US doesn't expo...

Re: Taking apart knives

Or not have any kind of CQI program? (Let's keep making the exact same Omega springs!) Once again. I'm talking about the current models. Read my lips: CURRENT models Spyderco Paramilitary 2 and new model Spyderco Military (with stepped stop-pin) There's no any quality improvement in Spyderco Parami...

Re: Taking apart knives

When I needed new screws for my PM2 I sourced them myself. I don't understand why others can't (refuse) to do the same thing. It's simple. You live in the USA and I live over the ocean. We have a metric system for the thread on the screws here, so the screws just won't fit in. I can find the same-s...

Re: Taking apart knives

Didn't know there was a ban on the international shipping of SAE threaded fasteners... Must be a military thing. :rolleyes: Sarcasm, eh? Cool :) I admit you didn't know that) By the way : "There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy." - Hamlet (1.5.167-...

Re: Taking apart knives

Spyderco has generally been helpful to overseas customers that need minor hardware replacements over the years (from my observations, only, as I reside in the US). They appear to draw the line when the issue is deeper, that may affect the safety of the knife, then they request it be sent in. Has yo...

Re: Taking apart knives

You can always send it in. Yup. Seven thousand miles and two customs. Not a safe journey for a quite expensive knife, eh?) Knives have a way of going "missing" in the mail. Risk a two-hundred-dollar knife for a screws and a couple of washers? Nice decision :) You don't seem open to any other soluti...

Yes you should.
See previous discussion.
Yes it is.
I don't think so. No customer-friendly company would ever say you should source the parts yourself.

Could you not source the screws, etc. yourself?
Should I? Should I source the screws by myself?
Why doesn't the manufacturer source the screws, washers, standoffs etc. for the current models at least? I'm ready to pay for the stuff. Is it difficult?
Other manufactures do.

Re: Taking apart knives

If I take my knives apart and screw up I am responsible for fixing it, sourcing my own parts or sending it in for repair. I can’t see why Spyderco should be responsible for helping me fix my issues for free. And I don’t want to pay a sur-charge so that others can get small parts. I'm ready to pay f...

Re: Taking apart knives

So if I called one of these companies and said I need two new handles and all the hardware they would send it for free? What if I needed a new blade? How liberal are they? You just call them and they send whatever? No questions asked? No one I know sends blades or handles. You send the knife to the...

Re: Taking apart knives

Why not just support your products and sell internal parts? The current process causes out of pocket expense to the end user and this attitude of “users can’t possibly be trusted to use a T8 driver” comes across as sanctimonious, those who use these tools cone from many backgrounds and to assume th...

Re: Shipping of internal parts

So, what's Sal's decision on shipping internal parts?... Screws, washers? 🤔
