Re: Lynch Northwest Wire Clip Replacement Deep Carry Clip

Yes thank you Sal for both reading the posts and taking issues seriously. I find all wire clips will do this, but on some models such as the Kapara, it sits in a spot where it’s unlikely to happen often in my grip. On the Para 3 it’s in a spot where it happened all the time. I tend to grip things t...

Re: Swayback Lookout Thread

Mine just arrived minutes ago! But already I can say I love it! As a lefty it is ideal to flick open, plenty of access to the hole and even opening it with my right hand it’s just fine....... I’m confused by opening complaints? Honestly not sure what's happening with them. Mine was just plain stuck...

Re: Lynch Northwest Wire Clip Replacement Deep Carry Clip

I noticed the twisting more on the Para 3 LW than I ever had on the Dragonfly or the Manix, but I also found that applying just a touch of purple lactate and tightening the clip screw real good was sufficient to stop it for the most part. One of the things I like about the stock P3LW clip is it has...

Re: Para3 - CPM-SPY27 now shipping!

Holy crap is this an improvement! This Lynch clip not only solves my problem shown in my previous post, but it’s 100 times more comfortable and looks better. I can barely feel it at all and can’t make it dig into my hand if I try. It doesn’t carry any different but is less noticeable as it’s not as ...

Re: Maybe small knives are not TOTALLY awful

Personally I like my small knife to be a nice traditional slip-joint in my back pocket, very often a GEC. Something a bit larger in my left front, (I’m a lefty) pocket. Usually a Spyderco. Since it’s arrived, I've been carrying a small for me, Spy27 Para3. Behind the choil, it’s a nice 3 1/2 finger ...

Re: Do you always use grease on your knives or is something

However one single drop of oil will destroy a classic slip joint with Brass liners when stored for long periods. I would say get all the oil off them and use nothing but Ren wax Can somebody explain the physics (or chemistry) of this statement for me? What is it in oil that is harmful to knives wit...

Re: Do you always use grease on your knives or is something less viscous OK to?

Here in the middle of Canada, we get -40 temps, grease or heavy oil can make a knifes action less than desireable. I like to use fishing reel oil. Something called Quantum hot sauce, I believe is what I’ve got right now and it works great.

Re: Forum search turned up nothing: How do you lubricate the washers on Manix 2 LW?

So, sometimes I need to add a drop of oil but don’t feel like taking the whole knife apart to clean and lube. What I do is loosen the pivot, then with an appropriate sized torx, (because I use a multi bit folding set) I wedge it in sideways, between the scales to separate them slightly. Then a drop ...

Re: Para3 - CPM-SPY27 now shipping!

So the clip is as it looks in pics, nicely rounded. This is a huge improvement as it doesn’t dig in too bad despite landing on a spot where the squared off clip would have made this another unusable knife for me. It does however keep folding over so I’m glad I ordered a lynch wire clip replacement. ...

Re: Good cleaning solution for knife blades to use for food prep?

So as mentioned dish soap is what I use most often. However after breaking down cardboard or packaging I often have glue from the tape on my blade. Soap alone doesn’t cut it. That’s when I turn to lighter fluid. Just a little squirt on a paper towel or right on the blade. Then a quick wash with the ...
