Re: Etching wire clip - how to darken finish?

i may be wrong, but when you gun blue your blade that makes it no good for food prep right? pretty sure the bluing isn't food safe. Not sure. I actually had pcb ectching solution. I did use gun blue after trying to darken it more. It did almost nothing that pcb ething didn't already do. It's the wi...

Re: Etching wire clip - how to darken finish?

update: ordered 2 of the foundry clips. about 15 bucks with shipping included. You get replacement screws also and some Loctite in the package from spyderco factor outlet. The one thing about the acid etch is that it made the wire clip too grippy. I guess depending on your needs you'd like that. For...

Re: Too Many Exclusives?

I wish they made more so the hoarders don't eat up the whole stash. Makes the sprints borderline too valuable to use Very true. Think about all the sprints and exclusives that will literally never get used to cut anything, lol. Funny how that works. They design some incredible steel that could cut ...

Re: Too Many Exclusives?

Aren't exclusives just another form of offering sprints in the first place? It does take away from the rarity of sprints, but the only people who care are people who care about resale price. Like other said, they stop when they don't sell. It's nice being able to get a knife that has specs you like ...

So you milled out the native Maxamet rivets? Swapped into a g10 with carbon fiber scales?

Looks sick.

Re: Re-Sprinting the Super Blue Caly 3/3.5?

I'm super happy with my zdp cf Calys. The pivot bolts are annoying but it's worth it for the thinness this guy brings to the pocket. Are frns and g10s thicker?

If they ever brought back the Calypso Sr. (The big one) I'd get one.

It takes a while to get reply but you will. It's definitely a small shop, but that's also why you get Sal and others posting on these forums and it actually means something to the community.

I see some dealers have the Para 3 maxamet as (Discontinued
This product is no longer available) is this true?
It's why I didn't return my Maxamet Manix LW(I just bought too many knives at once). Worried the steel won't stay production.

Re: New knife law hits london

In the UK, kitchen knives will always be legal to buy (not carry unless you’re like a chef) and they’re far deadlier than 3” blade non-locking folders. There are also all-ceramic kitchen knives that defeat metal detectors. To say that “there is never a reason to carry a knife” is just naive. So, ev...

Re: New knife law hits london

I don't even own guns and don't like the attention being spent on the symptom and not the cause. Violence is a difficult problem that can't be easily solved with a law. Similar to drugs. They're illegal too aren't they and pretty much have always been.

Re: Para 3 Maxamet

What's keeping me from buying another knife is that I really should invest in some good sharpening equipment first. It's pretty much how I started collecting knives. Just buy a new one when the one i carried becomes dull. Dropped some money in a good sharpening system. Then I justified buying super...

Re: PM2 to PM3, happy?

I found the standard clip hole position is best on the Manix 2's. I don't mind the regular clip on that knife. For my PM2 need a medium carry and on the Para3 I need a deep carry. I have to find a satin Ti deep carry clip that isn't as long as the one I have and isn't the wede duck billed MXG. After...

Re: Migration to smaller knives....didn't realize

As has been said, I think many guys carry way more knife than they need. They are convinced that a 4” blade is the minimum that they need to accomplish their tasks. It’s probably way overkill, but if you enjoy a large folder in your pocket, have at it. On the flip side, there are guys like me who u...

Re: Etching wire clip - how to darken finish?

used a small blowtorch and some locking plyers. PCB eching first, blueing second (did nothing), and then finally blow torched. This is best I could do. Came out a little un-even, but oh well. I think that was the blueing that made it uneven like that. SHould of used a plastic twisty tie instead of a...
