    Great shots as usual. Mine is AUS-8 version which is a little different (nice pinned construction in micarta side and stop pin visible near the pivot in the other side), one of my all time favs.

    Spyderco Kitchen Knives

    After more than 8 years, we still use these knives everyday. I felt the pictures from back then didn't hold up, so I reshot them.

    While I was in Switzerland a few years a ago, I picked up a hand full of those wonderful Victorinox paring knives, and my wife prefers those over the Spyderco one. And she is much better at cooking than I am, so the little knife has seen less intensive use since the swiss invasion.

    My wife doesn't like paring knife also. I bought her Shun and she is quite happy with it. I do not use paring knife much either. I always have something in my pocket, which I like more . Out of my Spyderco kitchen knives, Yang is most used. But I do not have Homemaker (I remember that you have one) or Sushimi. They would be great on kitchen. My wife does more and much better cooking than I am, but I started to spend much more time on kitchen after I got few decent kitchen knives.

    New pics of old fixed blades

    While doing some site maintenance, I came across several pics of my old fixed blades that simply weren't up to snuff. So I took some new ones.

    That's a pretty nice collection of Dodo's!

    I went to change the clip on my Carbon Fiber Dodo to a low rider clip, and noticed that the CF Dodo doesn't use an entirely normal clip. The slots in the scale are thinner and the clip is ground a little thinner to fit into the slots. I had to rub the low rider clip on a sharpening stone to get it to fit.

    They say they changed some angles on the lock for the new ones. On mine it seems like the angles don't work perfectly with the Ceramic Ball. The ball is pulled away from the back spacer as it rolls over the detent corner and has a slight clicking sound when it lands back on the back spacer.

    Spyderco Ed Schempp Balance & Delica

    Some Ed Schempp customized goodness to start off the new year....







    Since I was photographing the Balance, I decided my old(er) customized Delica needed some new photos too.

    Ed Schempp made both the Delica's blade and the Balance's handle using Devin Thomas made stainless damascus.
