Re: SEKI-CITY JAPAN looks hand etched

If I had to guess, someone bought a legit model from them, used their liberal return policy, and sent back a fake. Then Amazon put that fake into inventory.

And you were the unfortunate soul that received it.

If it were me, I'd take advantage of that liberal return policy and send it back.

Re: Fillet Knife? Steel Types?

http://i.imgur.com/DbGfs6K.jpg The Spyder was a recent purchase on flea bay. The seller comments stated he found it in his fathers old tackle box. It came exactly as you see it, scratches and all. Which for what it is, I don't mind, it felt like a rescue? Because that guy had no love for it, sentim...

Re: Micro Bevel Matter?

Probably not much (unless one is fixated on bess-tester results). Some of those guys may need psychiatric help. :D But it's the crazy people that gather the data points (in many things knife related). Over time we all learn from them. If a non knife guy saw someone hammering a knife through a nail, ...

Re: Para 2 with button lock release..

Price is

$224.00 (plus $10 if you want colored scales, or more for colored hardware). http://bladeswelove.com/
$136.47 (todays cost on amazon for a lefty PM2, which we'll subtract)
$ 87.53 looks to be the actual cost of the mod

Re: You can run any model you want in LC200N. Which do you choose?

Great to see all the love for the catcherman.

I've got an old combo edge that's seen better days. Would love to replace that one with a PE, seeing how the combo edge doesn't really fillet well.

But I also want a SE one for around the house & yard. 4.313" (110mm) of pure cutting awesomeness.

Re: Micro Bevel Matter?

Anyhow, I don’t know if there’s a quicker way than using a micro bevel to touch up an edge and I am pretty idle but I can’t see myself using a 40deg micro bevel anymore. . Super quick touch ups, (agreed) hard to beat the speed in which you can get back to shaving sharp with a true micro bevel. My r...

Re: The Secret Heat Treatment of Frank J. Richtig

To get to the bottom of it, you'd also need a sample of the steel or alloy that he cut. I think there was some tom foolery going on, where he was cutting soft alloy that was fashioned to look like something it was not. Call me a healthy skeptic.

Re: Para 2 with button lock release..

If someone buys this, hopefully they will disassemble, snap close-ups, and post.

Looks like it can be home brewed. Just a question of how easily.

Re: Micro Bevel Matter?

I should of qualified it better. I was using the sharpmaker angles in my head 30 vs 40. I'd imagine LT's edge is a degree or two (nano in comparison), not the 10 degrees difference you'd get with standard sharpmaker slots. Sorry for not making that clear above. But, I agree, even at those sharpmaker...

Wanted to show a picture that'll help illustrate what you discovered (for anyone not fully wrapping their head around it). http://www.caseyspm.com/images/cpm.ImagesGif/KnifeFigure-4.gif At 30 degrees inclusive the edge is stable enough to not need a micro bevel, generally. Everyone's use is differen...

Re: Para 2 with button lock release..

Interesting. I'd rather Spyderco cqi that into the model at a better price.

Can already imagine some people arguing this new lock release will make it faster than a back lock. :rolleyes:

Re: The Secret Heat Treatment of Frank J. Richtig

Makes you wonder is it possible that his real secret was possibly annealing the steel he intended to cut (prior to arriving at a demonstration)?

At any rate, very interesting read. Thank you for posting it and looking forward to your future findings.

Re: Micro Bevel Matter?

Hey Bloke,
Can you carve a stick to resemble a birds head, an if it has any knots, use one for an eye. Then add some feather stick curls to give it a beard and sideburns?

O wait, nevermind....

Re: Trendy steels

There are many reasons why people flock to Spyderco as a brand. For me, the two biggest reason are design, and steel options. I've already found a design that works good enough for me in my daily work EDC (and have backups). I could easily call it a day and walk away. The main reason why I'm here no...

Re: Trendy steels

Not into stainless steels that are a pain to sharpen. I'd rather go with a steel that skews towards toughness and ease of sharpening. If you took a hard pass on two knives that were $150 each, and took that $300 and bought all three of the new Venev double sided resin bonded diamond bench stones. I...

What steels and scales combos would one like to see?
Curtain colors and materials don't concern me much, long as they aren't pink or fuchsia.

HAP 72 on a Stretch 3 would fly off the shelves.
