Re: Number of Spyderco Knives in your collection

I have no business owning 10 Spyderco knives. It's fun collecting. I only moved into collector status last 2 months. Prior to that ID buy one a year, beat it up, get another one. Never sharpened them. That all changed recently. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/8uBR9WBBFFVYTtDlrz6Z5uBUg2dDh20y2fDiO1...

You may like to speak to someone at a local Gun Shop about cold bluing products. :)
Ahh. Forgot about blueing. Couldn't I just get a blueing kit from Amazon?

Etching wire clip - how to darken finish?

I acid etched a wire clip to get it matte finish instead of chrome polished. Any way to darken it to look like the dark grey/black finish on chaparral clips?
Thanks in advance.!

Re: MXG Clip

IDK if its bc i haven't used knives that dont have low rider clips, but the clip on my PM2 is pretty perfect. Im interested in a MXG clip for how it looks.

Re: MT-24 MAXAMET Review and Testing

Who knew computer guys were so into knives? ;) It's not a Mule, but I did just sharpen my Native for the first time today. I really like how this steel sharpens, not at all as difficult as I thought it would be with a high carbide steel. ZmaxSharp.jpgZmaxSharp2.jpg That is an Epic pile of cardbord ...

i’d really love one of these, but over 50 bucks for shipping the the knife to europe just isn’t possible for me to justify pulling the trigger :( as for the dlc coating: are there any dlc coated toolsteel knives out there already having a patina? i’m just wondering since the dlc just gives a minor ...

Re: Para 3 Maxamet

I like mine so much I started taking it to the office. The blade finish is so smooth and edges are rounded unlike any other Sppderco (other than my LW Manix also in Maxamet). https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/nxwm_1-OOarypRi9-qiFuls2xkHVF0W4kDpnFbTdN8N9X-kiTDqRnPtPIfNUzeJuaeB900gTumeVHxlXZG4iXdzpl_m...

Re: G10 vs frn vs frcp

I got my FRCP dark blue manix, and I'm disapointed it wasn't the older FRN version. No need for disappointment. There has never been a FRN version of the Manix 2 LW. They've all been FRCP. I honestly can't feel the difference between FRCP and the FRN that comes from Golden. I just had my lady close...
