I believe the original SR-1's blade was 95 mm or about 3.75 inches. So about the same as an EnduraPete2s wrote:I really like it. Reminds me of the Terzuola. What do you think is the blade length?
Those are the screws for the metal[I am not 100% on the actual type] insert on the titanium lockbar which is on the original SR-1 by lionsteel, so that it would reduce wear, and allows you to order replacements from them if/when it wears down to keep the lockbar stable.2cha wrote:What are the two little screws for at the tang end of the lockbar for?

They are for the steel insert on the end of the Ti lockbar, similar design to the Ti millie, prevents the lockbar from wearing prematurely.2cha wrote:What are the two little screws for at the tang end of the lockbar for? Are they overtravel stops?
Thanks, I must have an earlier Ti Millie--FLYBYU44 wrote:They are for the steel insert on the end of the Ti lockbar, similar design to the Ti millie, prevents the lockbar from wearing prematurely.
I'm not sure the newer ones have it yet, I could be wrong. It was introduced with the Knifeworks M4 Millie a few months ago.2cha wrote:Thanks, I must have an earlier Ti Millie--
So, the end of the lockbar that makes contact with the tang is replaceable? (I know that primary reason is b/c Ti softer than hardened steel). If so, that's awesome. I have an old Bob Terzuola with the Walker lock--the lockbar is ALL the way over to the far edge of the scale. I wonder if a similar top edge could be retrofitted,... hmmm.
not my cup of tea either. I like my sharp things to be pointy as well.D1omedes wrote:thanks for the pics. that model is not my cup of tea but it looks nice.
thanks. i checked out the video, he shows it in use around the 6:20 mark for anyone else. i do like that clip as well. i kind of wished the handle was milled out of one piece titanium but then there wouldn't be much difference between the spyderco and the original version other than a hole in the bladeThe Mentaculous wrote:The circular thing? If you twist it when the blade is locked, it holds the lockbar in place. Also it keeps you from bending the lockbar too far
