Topic: Oh no, the clip!
Replies: 11
Views: 2117

That seems to be pretty unusual. Just looking at mine, the clip is certainly not bent and the end of the clip (opposite end to the screws) sits flush with the knife. I would order another clip - it should definitely not need to be bent into shape. As for the clip snapping, if enough force is applied...

Definitely prefer the low riders (carrying a Caly atm). I usually wear cargo pants which have a pocket cover where I like to keep my knife and the wire clip knives seem to fit in much better than the others. Doesn't stop me from carrying my other :spyder: s though. :)

Topic: H-1 Spyderhawk, perhaps the *perfect* Spydie?
Replies: 5

Yeah, the Spyderhawk sounds like it would be a great knife. The larger hawkbill blade in H1 really appeals to me. I have a Tasman which I usually take out on the boat with me, but I find that the blade isn't quite long enough for my tastes (EDC at the moment is a Superhawk). I don't mind the hollow ...

Topic: Delica: flat saber grind vs. hollow grind
Replies: 10
Views: 7770

I'm a fan of FFG, makes a much better knife all round. The hollow grind is not too bad, it is relatively easy to sharpen and is a good slicer. The saber grind on the other hand, I think (and this is my opinion only) is just terrible. I think that if the Delica IV (PE) had almost any other grind (and...

I don't know that I am too keen on wooden handles. I think it is going to come down to Rock Salt, Moran or one of the smaller Hossoms.

Fixed Blades & Your Experiences

Hi Guys, I wanted to have a discussion about fixed blades and the experiences people have had and what you look for in a fixed blade. I've been thinking more and more about them and what I would like in a knife. At the moment I only have the Forrester, which is one hell of a knife, but I am reluctan...

I use my Millie when I am out doing emergency service type work. It has never let me down and has proven itself to be an excellent knife. I do think that the Millie cries out to be used though. I have used mine on 16mm rope, vines and bamboo, kernmantle rope, gyprock ceilings, stripping dirt encrust...

I haven't had too many problems with it. I loaded it on my laptop without too much trouble. The only problem I have is that I can no longer tether my phone (E71) to it. For some reason it just does not want to connect (even though, via USB or bluetooth) Nokia PC Suite works and recognises the phone ...

That Kauri looks fantastic! I'd definitely order one if they were available. You've got a couple of pieces of interesting wood there. The zebrawood looks like it could produce some interesting results. There are a couple of pieces down the bottom of your first pic that also look like they'd make nic...

I've started a thread when I've had a problem or question about one of my knives. 9 times out of 10 I get very well thought out and considered responses. I've only ever had to contact Spyderco once (after the thread recommended it) and the problem was pretty quickly resolved.

My Forester seems to be fine, no spots, the edge is very sharp and the screws are flush with the handle. I haven't had any problems at all with it.

I only recently discovered the Stretch. I have a couple of Delica's which I always thought would be great if only they had a flat grind. Then I saw a Stretch for sale and it replaced my Caly as the knife I usually EDC (around the shops/office). It is a great design and has everything you'd want - li...

Yep, I have one and need another one now. I really like it. Given I use most of my knives, I find it easier than storing them in the boxes. Takes up less space too (although I have kept most of the boxes).

I'd say grab one.

Now, can you name the knives?

Windows 7 Fun

Don't know if anyone has done this already, but in Windows 7 you can turn the desktop photo into a slide show. I have pictures of each Kopa on mine and every 5 minutes it changes to a different Kopa. Pretty nice time waster!

A very tough question. I most often edc a Stretch SE now, but when I need to do some serious hard cutting (on a frequent basis), the Military is the one to do it. So, despite it being a little big for EDC, I'd have to say the Millie.

I think a caged ball lock would be excellent. The OP's drawings on page 1 look great (even like the colour). I'd love a run of Yojimbo's to be done as it is a knife I would really like to own and my chances of getting an NIB are pretty slim at the moment.

I wouldn't mind a Catherman, it looks like a very useful knife. There was one at a store down the road, but the price is way too much (something like $190!). A pity, it could come in very handy.
