Why not mod the snark maker base?
Well that’s too good to correct. But I did mean “sharpmaker”.

Re: custom base for sharpmaker

Why not mod the snark maker base? Cut it in half between the slots. Bevel the pieces so you have a gap at the top and afix the halves to a hinge. Use appropriate spacers on the ends to get the desired rod angle.

Re: My take on the Spyderco Police...

Wish my DS stones had the old style smooth leather slips. The new suede is just floppy and unsatisfying.

Re: One Proud Father

Too cute! I have two sets of twins, they all have their own glow in the dark plastic Delicas. The older set have their own Meadowlarks, the only problem being they can’t press the back lock lever down to close them. One of my girls likes my squarehead.

How tall are you Vivi?? Im going to guess around 6-4"?
Height doesn’t always follow. I’m 6’3” with a 35” inseam, but only a size “L” glove. Hence the para 3 is such a good fit.

Re: native salt!

Pelagic, everybody has their preferences. I grew up in Florida on small boats. For my part, a “boat knife” is something along the lines of a Salt for cutting rope and corrosion resistance, or a fillet knife. I happen to like Rapala fillet knives, they’re inexpensive and easy to sharpen quickly, and ...

Re: I never want to hear about "chippy" steel ever again

As a kid I took everything apart. I wanted to know how it worked. Sometimes with disastrous consequences. I had to epoxy my SAK scales back on... but I still have that knife, works fine. I’m definately not in the “fluff n buff” is required crowd, but I take apart as I feel necessary. Once to change ...

Re: I never want to hear about "chippy" steel ever again

I have found that I have a lot more control over what I listen to than what others say. This, in spades. The thing people tend to forget about the First Amendment, while everyone has the right to speak their mind, their right to speak does not mean others can be forced to listen. People seem to be ...

Re: native salt!

I need to find one to hold. My bar none favorite is the para3; to me this model defines Spyderco. I’ve never seen the native in person let alone held one.

Holy smokes. That’s a pic you need to bring out when we get into ergonomics/knife size discussions. No wonder you prefer the pacific salt!

Re: “Little knife for a week” challenge.

Para3 blade isn’t particularly large. My frequent edc is the p3 and an frn squarehead. Most tasks are handled with the SH, but it doesn’t work so well for my daily apple at lunch. Dragonflies handle an apple fairly well.

I’d give him $20 and tell him to send it to Spyderco or someone else to have it resharpened. :)

I’d give him a swift kick in the keister and tell him to send it in to be sharpened on his own dime. Opening cans with a pocket knife is just daft.
