Re: Which direction does the spring go when installing it in a Stretch?

Please tell me you have got the spring oriented in the right direction. I will assume you do. Something to keep in mind is that a back lock lockbar is just a giant lever. So with constant spring tension the closer the spring contact spot is to the center pivot, the easier (less springy) the action o...

Re: Dlc sells out faster than satin

Obviously because it wont reflect light and give away your position when doing covert missions behind enemy lines.
This is bad however since you cant use it as a signal mirror in a survival situation.
Both great mall ninja arguments in my opinion. :)

Re: Pacific Salt 2

Sal said that new Pac Salt will have E4 handle. LC200N with FFG but there is going to be also a H1 saber-hollow grind. should come in 2020, so I hope in the first reveal next year. Wouldnt the base version just be in next years catalog at the beginning of the year? Instead of the first reveal? Im a...

Re: Pacific Salt 2

Alot of things have been thrown out there over the past few years. The most recent info came from the discontinued for 2020 thread. The pacific salt 2 will most certainly have h1. This also means it will be sabre ground. Whether or not it gets other steel options or different handle options is still...

Re: Spyderedged Blades: A Total Mis-Understanding Maybe?

I didn't think the edge would benefit from the reduced teeth of sharpening. I'm not too experienced with serrations, so thanks for your insights Lance and Vivi. Think i'll have to look into getting some serrated blade for my edc in the future. I'm not totally sold on the H1 steel yet though. Think ...

Re: The hawkbill learning experience

I dont think I could carry only a hawkbill. They are wonderful for some things. But then you go to do something like cut a sandwich in half and you remember why they are considered a specialized blade shape.

Re: Spyderedged Blades: A Total Mis-Understanding Maybe?

Since we are on the subject, does anyone have opinions on other type of serration patterns. Veff, flaf top serrations that can be sharpened on a bench stone, chisel top serrations. I guess we are always splitting the difference between a knife and a saw as well. From the veff serrations argument sho...

Re: Spydie Blade Hump - I’ve seen the light

I agree with the box cutter thing but it doesnt really matter. I would also make the argument why not just readjust your grip? Should have happened after the first cut. Standard hammer grip is going to keep the thumb out of the way. I go back and forth on thumb ramps. Sometimes I like them and somet...

Re: Spyderedged Blades: A Total Mis-Understanding Maybe?

People get so worked up about this, but theres really no right or wrong, just different tools. I like combo edges so according to the internet that makes me a terrible person who isnt fit to own a knife. I like full serrated as well, especially in my salts. I think h1 is the best justification for s...

If its Zfinit which I think is what Zapp industries named it then yes. On the Alpha knife supply page for lc200n, they say lc200n=zfinit=cronidur 30

Re: List of available knife steels not yet used by Spyderco for sales

Sm100
Nitrobe 77
Dendritic cobalt
Stellite
Talonite

Not 100 percent positive but pretty sure.
There is going to be a ton of steels and metal alloys that could be on this list. So I guess you mean the ones that would be suitable or within reason to use.

Re: Which spyderco is in the mail?

Yesterday I received my S30V Manix 2 in DLC coating, along with a Salt 2 Wharncliffe SE. Both are great knives, and I’ll be taking the Manix 2 to work today. It’s my first-ever experience with a ball-bearing lock. Actually, the dealer I ordered them from, knifeworks, double-sent my order; I got two...

Ive been wanting a couple of these. The hawkbill serrated and a sheepsfoot. Are they all slightly different? Seems like the hawksbill has a flipper and the other models dont. Also seems like the clip pount has less of a choil or a different choil compared to the other two designs. Cant personally co...

Re: Pros, cons and limitations of locktypes, solely referring to CONSTRUCTION and DESIGN of a folder

I meant if a complock had a completely round and very large handle like on an oyster knife. It could limit how easily the comp lock is used in its standard closing procedure. The pich required may be more difficult as the thumb moves farther away. But now as I think about it the handle would be so b...

Re: Pros, cons and limitations of locktypes, solely referring to CONSTRUCTION and DESIGN of a folder

Well on the design side of things. Even if the edge goes all the way to the handle I would like to see the overall knife design still incorporate a hidden ricasso that is exposed in the closing arc. Pretty much regardless of any of the lock types. I guess thats what im getting at. Hey Wartstein. Im...
