Use the corners of the brown/grey rods on the Sharpmaker at 40 degrees...Use the 3:1 sharpening ratio...Finish off by stropping between the serration scallops with a sturdy leather shoe lace (you can put compound on the lace if you want for even more polishing)...

A little tip that I learned a long time ago.... You know the foam insert that comes in the box with the knife? Take it out and place it on a flat surface. Lay the knife on this when tightening the screws and make sure that you use straight down (vertical) pressure. Some people feel that using a high...

Again though, Spyderco's normal response to that, assuming it was a warranty issue and the model was still in production, would be to send the person a new knife. If it was not a warranty issue, they'd either regrind the blade or tell the customer the knife was beyond repair. Just seems that would ...

Spyderco has never sold blades for any of their knives which use screws. Am curious as to why you think they'd start doing that now. I think what he means that if the knife has to be sent in for blade replacement, then it becomes a lot easier to do so at the factory. I had started a thread asking t...

Thanks! I haven't been on here much and didn't realize this change was being implemented into already-released pinned models as well.

Screw construction?

I know the new Dragonfly 2 features Torx screws at the pivot and lockbar hinge but since when did the other formerly "all-pinned" models start having this? I just picked up a new PE Pacific that has torx at the pivot and lockbar hinge instead of pins....

Did you tighten the pivot only?

If so, here are a few other "quick fixes" that might work...

Tighten the the handle screw nearest the pivot and make sure that the other handle screws are firmly seated. Sometimes, tightening the clip screws a hair can reduce miniscule amounts of blade play.

I have one that has been carried and used for almost 8 yrs straight. Lock up is only between 40 and 50%. I don't see 50-55% being a problem. Personally, I prefer a more "centered" lock-up on a liner lock.

It does seem the Military has fallen by the wayside as of late when it comes to upgrades and steels....
