Re: Squeaky pivots on ambitious-persistence-tenacious knives?

My Ambitious was stiff, felt gritty. Opened it up. There was grit in there. Cleaned, drop of 3in1, good to go. I doubt the grit was from carrying or use since the knife felt that way right away but I didn’t clean it immediately because I wasn’t comfortable disassembling it at that time. I prefer my ...

Re: A question for Mr Glesser and Spyderco (Clipped Manbug)

I carry my DF2 in the watch pocket without a clip, works great that way. The clip is on my Positron cause it’s better than the stock clip for me. I would like to try a clipped Manbug but I probably would take the clip off. I have carried a Ladybug on my keychain but I switched to a small multitool w...

Re: Do you care about deep carry?

I don’t carry a big folder PM2, Millie, Manix when traveling and in my state the larger knives are legal carry. I prefer a deep carry clip to stock on my PM2 because it’s more comfortable when using the knife. Mostly I don’t care. I carry the larger knives right rear pocket because then I don’t catc...

Re: How do you store your knives

In cigar boxes. Also some models are in fabric coffee bags from Guatemala then in the cigar box.

Re: Is the CBBL dead???

I’d love a Sage 6 because the size of the Sage is excellent for an EDC. However I usually carry a large knife and a small knife so any size that works with the CBBL would interest me. I buy a knife every 2-3 months so I buy 4-5 Spydies a year. Sometimes more.

Re: Maintaining factory edge.

I find the Sharpmaker easy to use, versatile and effective. It’s also relatively cost effective compared to some. I own an AG Russell sharpener, the angle is different and it really works only on pocket knives. Check out the Sharpmaker videos on YouTube to see how versatile the Sharpmaker is.

Re: CBBL: Two finger unlock, or one?

One usually, my thumb but I can do a forefinger alone or a two finger grip. I find it easy to do with one thumb and I am perplexed by the word struggle. On the other hand I have to focus to flip a knife open. Enough that I’m not much of a fan of the flipper as an opening method.

Re: Is the CBBL dead???

I’m with you. I would be very interested in a different design with the CBBL. I think it’s the best one hand open and close knife I own and I think it’s at least as good or better than Benchmade’s Axis lock. I would be interested in a long slim blade like you suggest but would also like to see somet...

Re: Help! I need to be talked out of getting a Sebenza.

I’m a huge Spyderco fan. I also really like titanium slabs for knives. I own 3 Spydies with titanium handles and an Inkosi. You won’t regret buying a Chris Reeve knife. The thumb studs are a bit of an adjustment but the workmanship, fit and finish, grind, lockup and blade centering are all perfect o...

Re: Multi-Tools & Specialty Tools

I can add a little to the discussion I think. I own Leatherman rather than Victorinox. My Leatherman Crunch has locking pliers. It’s not one handed operation but the pliers lock easily and securely. I also have a first generation Wave, that’s the one I use the most. I bought a bit kit that fits betw...

Re: Is the Dragonfly Obsolete?

If you like the hump, the Dragonfly is for you. If you prefer humpless the Chapparal is for you. My first Dragonfly 2 has ZDP 189 steel, certainly competitive with CTS XHP. Quality of fit and finish of both my Dfly and Chap is excellent. Every one needs one of each!

Re: Looking for a blade for my Miltary Knivfe

I would like to see pictures and know how it was worn down. I have bought 2 Militaries recently and did not pay full price for either. One was second hand and the other a close out. Shop around you could find a replacement if you have some patience.

Re: Casey Lynch Short Clip vs. MXG Gear Short Clip

I have tried both. I bent the Lynch clip pretty badly (my fault). However it’s thinner stock makes it more fragile. I also had trouble with the screws. I found installation of the MXG product easier and the clip itself more durable.

Re: Used Military questions

Thanks to both of you. I can see Spyderco CQI at work having an early and recent model of the same knife. It’s very cool to me that someone saved the box and I wound up with the right one. I save all my knife boxes. Don’t really know why.

Here’s a pic of the back spacer. How long were Military’s made with these? Also is LI for the date September of 2012? Someone please answer. I’m super curious!

Re: Used Military questions

Here’s a pic of the two knives showing the difference in lanyard holes and standoff’s. Is the plain knife typical of earlier titanium Millies?
