    Yeah, but processing a return costs them money. The margins are super low on these bulk import retailers. I've had them give a full refund rather than ship a missing screw on some cheap guitar...

    I didn't know about it while it was in production. The current price keeps me away. I'd take it in VG10 and < $120 any day over most of Spyderco's models.

    The liner lock doesn't thrill me but...

    You could take some very fine (1200 grit would be my first guess) sandpaper and wet sand it lightly. I would try the back side of the clip first.

    I like the heft and feel of the G10 model. 154CM and S30v work just fine for me.

    Differential heat treat methods exist but I've never heard of a Spyderco using them. That's more of a small time custom maker thing.

    I've got an FRN body some destroyed while removing the S110v blade. I can't explain why but it's better than the FRCP version.

    But nothing feels as nice as G10.

    4mm blade? It's already massive as it is!

    I'd like to see the Manix line expanded with different blade shapes, like Benchmade does with their Griptilian line.

    There's a federal law that says a knife branded by a gun manufacturer can only have so much value for the money. So they had to raise the price :).

    If I buy enough real spydercos can I collect knockoffs? They're kind of hilarious.

    The addition of a carbon coating to an H1 blade is pretty ironic.

    What's with you yellow handle freaks? I would have bought an H1 dragonfly by now if I could get it in reasonable color.

    I used to only EDC a Native FRN (1st a GIN-1, then an S30V). At the time I was in love with the ergonomics, but now after carrying bigger knives when I pick it up I'm not very enthused for some...

    Ironically, from I've heard grunts carry run-of-the-mill Spyderco folders (Endura, etc) in the field more than their issued fixed blades.

    I'd say they're about .03" too long. If I can work out a way to hold them I can grind them or mill them shorter. The length can't be too short or it won't grip the liner correctly. Tricky!

    No, FFG is a bad idea for shaving. You need hollow ground because you're going to be sharpening it constantly and you don't want a secondary bevel.

    Odd Delica problem

    Picked up a used Delica 4 for a song the other day. Thought I'd flip it to clip down carry but after I tightened the clip screws I found I could not open it. The screws are too long and clamp down on...
