The Brown Southard scale that I gave you was off of that knife. It was bought new.Evil D wrote:That's enough that I would suspect the one on the right to be fake. Look at how the Spyderco script almost rolls off into the plunge line. That seems sloppy.bearfacedkiller wrote:The plunge lines are very different.

Have you adjusted the pivot? This was the first knife I tried bearing grease in the pivot and it made a world of difference. You also have to be careful not to put any pressure on the lock bar or it will slow down the blade.dogrunner wrote:I have the original brown Southard and like it (and Evil D's review was spot on). Everything but the flipping action, which has never been good. It was the first and almost last spyderco flipper I bought (since I also have the Mantra 2 and bought and sold a Domino). I'm not a flipper fan at all, I just liked the rest of the knife (despite the too-thick grind). But the flipper needs to work or the blade is hard to open by just the hole.
I like the Southard enough to consider picking up the black one at the discounted price, but for those who have one - any issues with action? Do I just have a substandard one?

New knives include DLT m390 PM2, knifeworks 204P military, Blade HQ M4 military and now the tan southard! The sales are going to ruin me man.
So I saw some comments about the flipping action between the two. After seeing most of the YouTube videos I went with the tan because I figure it will wear better the the titanium nitride finish. And I saw flipper criticism going to each model.
Does anyone think the more recently built of either color may be functioning better and that's the real factor?
Also any recommendations to finish out my current spending spree?
