Interesting! would you say it's equivalent in thickness to, say, the pakkawood versions?
Definitely thinner than pakkawood and G10 versions as well.

Re: Polishing Washers

I've used 1500 grit and 3000 grit automotive sand paper with success many many times. Lay the sand paper on a flat surface and polish each side by moving the washer small circles with light pressure as evenly as possible with your finger until all of the tarnish has been removed. This is when any di...

Re: Techno 2 - quick look and more...

Thanks for the thoughts and pics. It took me a few tries for the Techno 1 to click, and I'm not sure why I'd like the 2 better. I'm glad to have the first version because I think it's a real classic, and I'll have the 2 at some point as I have and enjoy all of the other Slysz colabs.

Google Pixel3 or Samsung Note9?

Thinking about picking up a new phone... Still rocking an S7. From these two options, which would you pick? Does anyone own(ed) either of these and willing to share their experience? I might wait until the S10 drops, but that hole in the screen might be a deal breaker regardless.

Re: Spyderco new FRN Lightweights: What do you think will be the best?

Sal mentioned maybe moving to a different maker for the Caly 3.5 not long ago. Where do you think the FRN Caly 3.5 would be made? What if it was... Golden?! No chance?

Re: The Endela - what are your hopes for it?

I would also be quite happy to see a Stretch with a straight spine. That also seems like it would be easier than creating a new model. Not sure if you saw this... Sal mentioned a Stretch with an Endura blade shape could be in the future. https://www.spyderco.com/forumII/viewtopic.php?t=82528#p1296217

Re: The Endela - what are your hopes for it?

I'm hoping for a more forgiving handle shape like the Police4 (smoother profile without pointy bumps). I came to terms with the Endura last year but it's not ideal for me. I was sorry to hear a choil isn't happening, but am hoping for more cutting edge and less exposed tang. Definitely hoping for th...

Re: Sprint Run Manix2 build year

Pretty sure it was 2017, but check out the two letter date code on the box for the most exact answer. Below is the chart from my google doc, Month is the first letter on the box, followed by year. For example, "IR" would be 9/18: A January B Februrary C March D April E May F June G July H August I S...

Re: BHQ Manix in M390

Has there been a sprint or special edition in the XL? I would love to see that. I don't have any experience with M390, does it rust or corrode easily? I like the satin blade but would go with the DLC black if it corrodes easily. The S90v CF Manix2 XL is the only XL sprint I am aware of. M390 is a g...

It's shocking how many multitools miss the mark when it comes to useful screwdrivers.
