    A couple of years ago I was in a local Sportsman's Warehouse, walked by the knife counter, and was surprised to see a Benchmade Infidel OTF under glass. I asked about it, and the clerk said that they...

    I wonder if it would be possible to have a removable hood that would not leave sharp corners on the back of the blade when removed. It would add more production cost than just leaving it off, but I...

    Ah. To a non-metallurgist like me, that makes sense. 'Bluing' on a firearm (and before that, 'browning'), done with a hot chemical salt bath, was originally intended to be a 'protective' finish on...
  5. Does Superblue 'patina' help prevent more serious 'pitting' later?

    I don't have any SB yet, but I will probably get an SB Stretch. Does working on getting a patina all over the blade protect it from more serious 'rust pitting' later, or is it mainly for the visual...

    I lost an 'original' Dragonfly several years ago. Haven't decided which version I want to replace it with, yet. My Delica and Caly Jr. are enjoying swapping quality pocket time with each other.

    Do be aware that you will be voiding the warranty, although Spyderco will still be willing to sharpen the blade if you send it in to them. A few years ago someone was selling red-handled trainers for...

    I used to carry a Dragonfly (not 2) in my watch pocket without using the clip. It is the only Spydie I have ever lost. I would recommend using the clip (even though it would be more discreet...

    Waved VG-10 sabre-grind Delica. I wish there were more sabre-grinds, but I understand the increased efficiency of the FFG.

    There is a place for both, but my favorite EDC is the sabre-grind waved Delica. I would love to see all of the 'new' colors in the sabre-ground Delicas and Enduras, including the USN 'toxic green' in...

    Scooby,
    I don't know if you are interested at all, but there have been limited runs of 'Border Patrol' Spydercos made in the past, that had Border Patrol insignia etched onto both the blade and...

    My British racing green waved Delica is my favorite EDC 'beater' (but not abused) knife. It's the one that gets the most pocket time with me. I don't know if the thickness of the saber grind blade...

    I am very sorry for your loss. I have a lab-setter mix who is getting older and starting to slow down, and I am trying not to think about that day. I know I will be devastated.
