Re: 2020 Spyderco Forum Calendar Contest!

http://i.imgur.com/Ex7pt6Cl.jpg That’s the winner right there. Great knife, picture, and contrasts. Thanks Jazz! Looking back, I kinda wish I'd cleaned it up a little first, but I figure a work knife should look like a work knife. And thanks to you for convincing Sal and Co. to produce the wharncli...

Re: Need help deciding on Wharncliffe and steel

I recommend going with the serrated VG-10 version. The serration pattern isn't quite as deep as some of the other Japan models, which allows it to cut smoothly like a plain edge, while still giving you the advantage of a serrated edge.

Re: 2020 Spyderco Forum Calendar Contest!

http://i.imgur.com/Ex7pt6Cl.jpg This is the Spyderco Salt 2 Wharncliffe. There are many like it, but this is mine. Except for maybe a week, this has been my every work day carry since I got it. Its blade shape is perfect for my uses, and its light weight means it won't weigh down the swim shorts I ...

Re: So about that "red" Loctite...

It's not just Taichung. I had some initial issues removing the pocket clip from my Wharncliffe Dragonfly because there was so much thread locker on the screw.

Re: Is that knife really that important?

I've said it before, and I'll say it again, any time I've bought a knife on impulse, I've ended up regretting the purchase. And, more often than not, I'll end up selling it for a loss. I kinda follow Jim's method, and I'll wait a bit before making the purchase. If, after a few weeks or a month, the ...

Re: Repair Dept: Is this a Sharpening or a Reprofile?

I've sent in a serrated Police model that looked worse than that, and it came back looking like it was brand new from the factory.

This knife is so great. I wish they made this knife 20 years ago... I would have saved myself so much money! Lol
Agreed. I'm giving some of my other small folders the side eye right about now..

Re: Real World Anectodal Incidents of Corrosion Resistance

I had some rust spots near the top of the blade on my wharncliffe Dragonfly, but it had spent about 8 hours in my waistband, soaked in sweat and salt water. I was able to clean them off easily enough.

Re: Dragonfly Wharncliffe

I got mine last week, and I'm loving it. It's so light that I almost forget I have it on me, and it uses one of my favorite blade shapes. I only have a tiny nitpick about mine, and it's the last third of the edge has a slight curve, like it was sharpened just a bit more near the tip. I'm sure that i...

Re: Polished or Toothy finishes

I used to try to polish my edges to a mirror finish, but lately I'm trying my best to try and replicate the factory finish on the edge. Usually that means using the coarse plate on my Worksharp Guided Benchstone to set the bevel, and just lightly refining the edge using the medium stones on the Spyd...

Whats the smallest spyderco you're comfortable using ? The lady and man bugs are a bridge too far for me, but the dragonfly is perfect.
Before I broke it, I was fine with the Clipit-tool with the bottle opener.

Re: Then and Now

Which stones did you use to get that coarse of an edge? The diamond or CBN? And did you use the 30 or 40 degree setting?

Re: AEB-L Urban sprint issue.

I remember reading a couple complaints about the tip on the Urban K390 hitting the backspacer when the knife was closed, mine actually had that issue as well. I wonder if this is their fix for that problem, though it looks like they may have caused another one.

Being a fan of the Delica, I regret not having the Kahr model. Unfortunately it is no longer in production. Has there been any discussion of a return of the Kahr or something similar to the blade in the Delica platform? You could just order a customized one from Knives Plus. They have one available...

Re: M390 Delica Blue FRN Bento Box Shop Exclusive

I think the dark blue is what might get it into my pocket. I missed out on the Kahr Delica in that color, and I didn't really want to have to buy BBS' Lil Matriarch and do a blade swap. Plus, it sounds like M390 is pretty easy to deal with. That checks a bunch of boxes for me.

Hi Chris, Lighter, just as strong. The tooling is more expensive, but we think it makes a better product for the intended use. We have an old line we've been using for decades; "No more than necessary, no less than perfect". sal Thanks for the info Sal. I had a suspicion that was the case, but it n...
