    Your thoughts on pre-ordering

    I have pre-ordered before but it took a long time to get the knife and sometimes the early runs had problems. In some instances prices on the web soared after the knife came out and then again,...
  2. Didn't realize all the uses for a Maddox

    I bought it to compliment a mini cleaver that I have. Both are razor sharp.
    The Maddox is a super tool. This evening I
    needed to cut 2 thick frozen pizzas in half. The Maddox did the work...

    Dialex Jr.

    Have been EDC-ing Dialex's Jr. and have found
    that the blade/pivot keeps constant friction and
    can't be adjusted to let the blade swing free. It dawned on
    me that this was how the knife was...

    Pivot Washers

    Some of the finest Spydercos that I have owned have had Mylar or some other plastic looking pivot washers. They all worked great for me. Other knives have had bronze pivot washers which seem more...

    Never any problems with any of these knives other than blade centering. As well as I remember I once bought 5 gray Calypso Jr.s at a great price and EDC'd one for 5 years in the most extreme...

    C52P was hardest Calypso Jr. to find. I had nearly given up until I saw this knife on eBay that looked like a C52P.

    Calypso Jr.'s

    The C52's are great knives and I EDC'd a gray one for years.
    I have all 9 variations and the C52P was the hardest to find. I got the
    C52 BMS Experimental from BH49.

    Most user friendly knife

    Dialex Junior just seems to fit my hand perfectly and does all the right things.
    Just my take on a great design. As a skinner, the Junior is right up there with the Wegners. For some reason I...

    Thoughts on the SS Balance

    Love everything about this knife except for the size. It is more like a piece of jewelry than any Spyderco I own. Can't clip it into my watch pocket as my mini SAK rides there and I need the scissors...

    The lesson that I have learned is not
    to use excessive torque on T6 and T8 Torx
    screws no matter the quality of the bit.
    Excessive force will kill the 6 tiny splines
    in the screw heads compared...

    Re: Kobalt tools

    I have Proto, Craftsman, Starrett and Klein tools. The Kobalt Torx tool filled a need with no hassel and on short notice. I have no other Kobalt tools so I have no opinion on them and probably won't...

    Another decent Torx tool

    Used a Harbor Freight Torx T8 bit to reverse the clip on my Junior. It stripped the screw head out. Charlynn
    sent me new clip screws and in the meantime I found a kobalt Torx tool at
    Lowes in the...

    My Leafstorm came today! A great knife.
    some people are turned off by the greenish
    un-dyed G10 but I like it for it's uniqueness.
    No warts or flaws on this Golden knife.
