Re: Trouble sharpening Spyderco...

Keep the plunge line parallel to the stone and be careful to keep the stone flat or you'll start to create a recurve edge. Maybe this video will help. I would bet you are right handed and when you flip the knife and stroke the rod with your left hand you are inadvertently tilting the stone when you ...

Re: Crazy deals @ Sierra and other places

Keep the title in memory of past great deals. :)
I recall getting a Spyderco Hossom Forager for $67.00 back in 2010. Micarta handle, Boltaron sheath, 7 1/2 inch N690CO blade. Insane price. I miss STP deals.

Re: Crazy deals @ Sierra and other places

Sierra Trading Post used to offer fantastic prices on Spyderco knifes. Sometimes up to an additional 45% off on knives that were already marked down to close out prices. In 2012 STP were bought by TJX Companies (Owners of TJ MAX) and they changed their business model and did away with the closeouts ...

Bento has them for 181.00 and 14.75 shipping.(US) With all the big shops adding sales tax it ain't looking too bad now.

Re: Best system for low angle wide bevels?

For the Hapstone I use clear packing tape on the platform and on the blade of the knife I'm sharpening. It doesn't gum up with windex, water, or anything else you throw at it.

Re: Who would like a traditional slip-joint Spyderco?

There some video out there of the steps that go into making a slip joint and it's just not something you'd do a flash batch of. The tooling, steps, dies, craftspeople. It ain't gonna happen.
Maybe a collaboration.

Re: Question about Sharpmaker

There was a discussion over at BF about the play. If you scroll down to post #18 you'll see the efforts some have gone to eliminate it. I'll just live with it.

I wonder what the reasoning was to put a lanyard pocket clip on the non lanyard Fradon CF Delica?
