Bill, I'm still new to Spyderco and didn't know the Delica and Endura had liners. Thanks for that info. I appreciate the input from all you guys. :) Only the Delica 4 and Endura 4 have liners and that is just to enable a 4 way clip position. Strength was never an issue on previous ones. Get the one...

Guess I'm going against the grain, but,
Notched, bolstered and a hollow grind, please.

Will the ergo's remain as good as on the old one when just upscaling this design?
I'm sure you have been giving this a lot of thought.

Come on toomzz, the edge of the knife in your pocket is closer to your genitals than the edge of my necker is to my throat.

Instead of a ball chain, has anyone tried paracord with a piece of flexible plastic tubing as a lock? If you get hung up on something the tube will release one end of the cord. Yes, a piece of plastic tube from a ballpoint. But you have to use a bit of superglue. I always carry a necker. A Izula or...

I carry a Izula on a daily basis.

The problem with laquer on knifehandles is that eventualy it will wear through. This gives ugly spots on the handle. Also it gives just a high gloss to the handle but doesn't really bring out the grain of the wood, making it look artificial to some extend. If you PM me your adres, I will send you so...

Forget powertools, it's like trying to ride a motorcycle before having learned how to master a bicycle. You take the stag scales off with a torx driver #6. Check if one of them is longer. Take that one and use it as a template and use a metal scriber to draw the shape on your desired material. It wi...

Thanks all.

KnOeFz, I have a small stock of CF myself, leftovers from work (Fokker).
I can send you some if you like.
Epoxy from Bison will work just fine.

I didn't find it very difficult, just take your time and check the fit very often. I think there isn't much to lose for the average guy. The Kiwi 3 is inexpensive and the stag scales are only held by a few torx screws. All the tooling you need is cheap too, a junior hacksaw, a couple of small files ...

Kiwi 3 stag, nice starting point.

For a gents folder.

Fit new inlays, straighten out the edge and give a little chamfer to the inside edges of the handle.
Drop of oil to the pivot and you are done.

Still no love for the Pukko. Has it been cancelled? I don't think so, it was there. Made in Taiwan by Taichung and looking good. The only difference with the original was the blade finish, it wasn't polished. The fit between blade and bolster was excelent, no gap whatsoever. Makes me happy to see a...

Jason, first of all, welcome on the Spyderco forum. So to get this clear, for my understanding, language barrier and all, this is what you say? That since you started as Kut Throat Knives a little while ago, you have become a master grinder and that the only reason why almost all of your blades are ...

What about the SPOT and Swick? They are milled or otherwise machined and are very good knives, at least in my opinion. There are many different ways to make knives. What matters is the end result. Yes, I agree. I don't have a problem with machining as a dominant factor in the production of knives. ...

No, just because his skills are limited to milling.
Which in turn limits his designs to what he can make on his milling machine.
And that is not enough to make a decent knife.

I think it's not a knife. It's a thing, meant to look cool and the result of the only skill this ''maker'' has under his belt. He can work with a milling machine and thats it. Oh yes, and he can work the forums. I wish him all the luck to make a name and all, but until he learns a whole lot more, I ...

The problem with deployment of knives will allways be clothing. Something you carry on a belt is pretty much useless if you have to dress for cold weather, in a suburban area that is. With the use of a static line you have more options. You can carry it loose in a pocket that you have easy excess to...

Kydex with a static line could do that.
