    Jack,

    Going back to your original idea for a minute, what about using a Dremel inside the handle scale to rout a channel that accepts a piece of flat metal - like a short length of stainless steel...

    Exactly this. I regularly inspect my back lock knives for lint build up. This build up happens faster when the knife is carried loose in pocket rather than clipped. The lint collects in the bottom of...

    I've seen rust in the drive recess of type 316 stainless wood screws. Small particles from the steel driver bit are left in the recess and then rust.

    Delica was my gateway Spyderco folder, specifically a saber ground ZDP Delica 4 in BRG FRN. The Delica is still one of my favorite Spydercos.

    While not a "casual bombshell," this pithy assessment by Sal is incredibly useful knowledge distilled from long experience and determined investigation. Thank you, Sal, for sharing that with us.

    Fascinating discussion. I entered high carbide, fine finish in the poll. I cut wood plus many other materials in my work. My favorite folding knife is only offered in high carbide steels.

    I'm also curious to see Sal's refinement of the Stretch ergonomics. That is more personally compelling than new handle colors/materials.
