Re: The Superior Delica

Lately, my CE Delica has been my primary carry knife, both for work and outside. Having used it so much for so long now, it's led to a bit of a dilemma whenever I start looking at something new. "Will it work better than the Delica? Will it allow me to do something that the Delica can't accomplish?"...

Re: Crazy Good Deals Part 2!!

BladeHQ still has some good bundle deals up on their site. I wish someone would either buy out that Police 4/Atlantic Salt combo, or buy it for me, because it's been tempting me for a week now. I can't believe that one hasn't sold out. I'm not particularly interested in either of those knives other...

I'm tempted, but I really want one with a serrated edge. Hopefully that's coming soon.

Re: Older box is better

Maybe I'm weird, but I think I'm more of a fan of the hanging clam packs. I just loved the inserts that gave you an overview of the knife's construction and features. Hang packs increase freight costs for international dealers and of course display costs for retailers. As a collector, and user I pr...

Re: "Re-surface" Almite

Contact Josh over at Razor Edge knives. He could likely clean that blade up, and cerakote the handle, making it look like new.

Re: Bottom of pocket/clipless carry ?

Whenever I carry my Dragonfly or Co-Pilot, it's clipless in the bottom of my pocket. They're small enough that it's not a bother if they don't ride perfectly vertical.

Dang. I might just have to pick up one of those CE Enduras to go along with my Delica.

Re: Spydiechef Rusted After First Use

I'm voting for surface contamination on the blade itself, likely from the belt they used to grind the blade. Looking at my Salt 2, there's rust in the "1" of the H1 engraving, and I'm pretty certain it's due to contamination from what ever tool they use to mark the blade. When we first got some larg...

Re: SE performance is more than simply teeth vs no teeth.

It took me a couple decades, but I've finally started coming around on serrations. Like James, I prefer them a bit shallower, like the ones on the Delica Wharncliffe. I'm also finding serrations seem to perform even better after a few sharpening have rounded the points of the teeth a bit. They still...

Re: SE performance is more than simply teeth vs no teeth.

How do you take damage out of a SE edge? (Are the corners on a cbn rod usable?) I bought, tried sharpening, and then sold a knife because I could not get rid of the rolled serrations. I'm not Evil D, but I've had good luck restoring serrations by wrapping some wet/dry sandpaper around a wooden dowe...

Re: Police 4 LW

Was there ever an explanation as to why the LW/G10 have a different blade than the SSversions? The blade on the SS what originally drew me to the police. The SS ones aren't the Police 4. I believe they're technically the Police 2, though not the same as when they came out. That's probably why Spyde...

That Junction keeps tempting me. I have enough fixed blades in that size and role, but it looks too nice for $100 to not buy.....
I wish you'd buy it. As much as I'd like a fixed blade, I don't need to spend the money right now.

Re: Which Steel In you’re experience is your favorite for Spydie Edges?

I voted for VG-10. I enjoy H1, but as some have said, it likes to burr up, especially on the plain edge section. I suspect its due to the chisel ground nature of the SE edges, but if I get a burr on the PE section, it's a bit stubborn to grind off. VG-10 in SE seems to be much more forgiving and jus...

Re: Shaving sharp off a reprofiling stone

Watching the video got me curious, so I decided to try something similar with a Dragonfly in VG-10. It...didn't work out so well. I used the extra coarse stone from a Worksharp guided bench stone set, and the edge got pretty torn up. I backed up to a well used DMT coarse, and that worked a little b...
