Re: Trouble sharpening Spyderco...

Looks like there's a professional sharpener having the exact same issue as me.

Re: Trouble sharpening Spyderco...

Do you sharpen using the blade stock as reference or the blades flat grind? I like to set my folders to a 15dps bevel (performed with the Edge Pro) with a 20dps microbevel (performed with the Sharpmaker). We basically sharpened the same. :) I sit the blade on the table of my Apex Pro style sharpene...

Trouble sharpening Spyderco...

Hello all! I seem to be having an issue sharpening my Spyderco knives. For some reason the heel and the tip on the show side of the knife seem to be taking a different angle than the rest of the knife. I am using a Edge Pro to do the sharpening and have never had this issue with the two dozen or so ...

Re: Red G10 20CV Manix 2 - DLT EXCLUSIVE

Holy cow, what a turn around time! Fantastic job DLT! I ordered my knife on Tuesday and it arrived in my mailbox in Washington state early in the morning, just two days later. Phenomenal. I'll try to get some pictures up soon before I go to work. This being my first Manix 2, my first impressions are...

Re: Will there be more Rex 45?

I'm still hoping to see a G10 Native 5 in Rex 45. I can't imagine a 1,200 piece run would survive a weekend before selling out.

Re: The Gauntlet Stands Revealed

Looks like I nice setup, but I don't think I can justify picking it up. I set the edge on my folders/fixed blades at 15dps with a 20dps microbevel and my kitchen knives are mostly set at 15dps with no microbevel. I use an Edge Pro to set the bevels on my folders and kitchen knives and then use a Sha...

Re: 2019 New Product Reveal!

I wasn't so sure at first... But after seeing the execution, I'm completely on board with the new way of doing the product reveals. I am really excited about the Para 3 LW! It's one of those knives I didn't know I wanted to be made... But after seeing it, I have to have one. The Spyderco deep carry,...

Re: Chaparral FRN - Best New Manual Folder 2018

Well deserved!

The Chaparral FRN kicked the standard Delica out of my pocket. I can't think of a bigger vote of confidence than that!

Does anyone know if the Dragonfly 2 dropped yet? I saw on the Bladehq website that it was "coming soon".
It has not.

Re: Sprints or exclusives?

I saw a worrying quote from Sal earlier: “Sprints are still going, but they are a bit different in that they are all disco'd models.” I sure hope that doesn’t mean that we will no longer see sprint runs of current production knives! I know we’d still have distributor exclusives, but I absolutely lov...

This dang thread... I got an itch while waiting for the V-Toku2 Dragonfly to drop and ended up ordering a Mantra 3 and Smock from Campsaver. The Mantra has already been shipped... Here's hoping the Smock makes it through QC and packaging soon! I ordered a HAP40 Delica Wharncliffe at a fantastic pric...

Re: Sal's Casual Bombshell Thread

My pretty knives sit in a case. Not because I'm worried about damaging them... But because a lot of them aren't great users.

My Spydercos get USED... And the more I use them and find out what amazing tools they are, the more beautiful they seem to me.
