  • Brief : "No matching angles" GTC: "consider it done fam"

  • So was it ... edgematters.uk/attachment/3253…6fcae80e392dbc2b30508963d Or did you bail and go for edgematters.uk/attachment/3253…6fcae80e392dbc2b30508963d

  • I like it very much , mirroring the line was a great decision , thanks for taking the time to share , always a treat to see

  • Very nice as always , do you mind me asking what prompted the guard shape change from the drawing ? I think the finished article looks better but was it just a question of going with the flow ? Or a remake after seeing number 1 in the flesh so to speak ?

    And a couple of general size comparisons alongside a Pingo & Para2 , edgematters.uk/attachment/3252…6fcae80e392dbc2b30508963dedgematters.uk/attachment/3252…6fcae80e392dbc2b30508963d As mentioned above its a compact knife but not overly so , I work with my hands so by default my hands are in a permanent state of looking rough .... Sorry but my brand new mechanixs gloves are in the wash edgematters.uk/attachment/3252…6fcae80e392dbc2b30508963dedgematters.uk/attachment/3253…6fcae80e392dbc2b30508963d…

    Quote from Paul W: “Unifinished internal surface on the Backspacer? ” standoffs So , it's fitted with a pair of nicely machined standoffs , standoffs appeal to me much more for a quick clean out , so although disappointed with the finish on the back spacer , it's turned out OK , had the spacer been of higher quality would it remain ? Probably not TBH. Unfortunately I didn't get pics of it stripped down , but dissembly was easy , all screws were thread locked but I didn't feel the need for a claw…

    Quote from DARJAC666: “@Jimmypie How's the ambidextrous use ? ” My spare hand seems to be able to manipulate it with no issues , either crossing a finger over or using my thumb , but it is a strong spring and detent , if your weak and left handed then there truly is no hope , but you might still manage the knife ok

    Quote from akacoach: “Just had a good browse at tacwrk. My wallet does not like you @Jimmypie (and SWMBO would not be a fan either!). I think that flyer you got with your knife is an unofficial motto of most of us 'collectors'. Looking forward to the rest of the review. Does any of the bumf clarify where the knife is made? ” Ha ha, your welcome And not that I've seen .. It's as sanitised as a US Special forces Cross border op into ... Well China I guess Quote from Tigertim: “Available in EM blue…

    Part 3 - Closer look pt2 As mentioned briefly , the back spacer is a disappointment but everything else is very good , the action is smooth with a very good detent , it's not a finger flicker at this point but hopefully it'll smooth out even further , it's a compact piece but I really like the overly large area of jimping to the lock bar , should make it easy to disengage with gloves or cold hands should the situation arise . Lock up is excellent in the first third with a very positive clunk , z…

    Don't mind the grubby / oily looking blade , I performed the "first cut" at the end of the review and after its already been in my pocket A closer look , first impressions are everything is very nicely machined , and seem to be of good quality , a very slim peel ply G10 over steel liners , CTS-BD1 blade steel running on bronze washers , fit is good , no flakey paint on the screws , one slight niggle which I will highlight further down . edgematters.uk/attachment/3250…6fcae80e392dbc2b30508963dedg…

    So , I started a thread here : The James Brand which after a little feedback and reading a few more reviews led me to ordering the budget (in The James Brand range) Folsom model from here : tacwrk.com/en/the-james-brand-…m-black-+-stainless-30135 Ok , so controversy , some say USA made - some say Far East made , who knows , here's the blurb . THE JAMES INTERPRETATION OF THE LEGENDARY LINER-LOCK. Featuring G10 scales and a steel liner-lock, the Folsom is ready to be put through the paces. The Car…

  • Excellent Hugh , I trust you've paced out the wifi distance accurately ?

  • @Paul W time flies mate That belt knife of mine has a lot to answer for

  • Field knife at the top , followed by Spike , more images on page 1 edgematters.uk/attachment/3246…6fcae80e392dbc2b30508963d Personally , if you don't need a spike then don't buy one , or ask Daniel for a modified version - same pattern just sans spike .

    Do you mean integral ? One piece ? Interframe is not a term I've heard before

  • @vilePossum as long as you can get the final internal size to same as it currently is then yes I don't see why not , things to consider though . If the blade is relieved or the scales relieved to accomodate the bearing set , your new washer will need to bridge that relief , now a bigger washer on the lock side may interfere with the lock bar . If the final thickness of "washer-blade-washer" is not almost exact to that of the standoffs or backspacer then expect bad centering / binding , blade rub…

  • @san-mai-usa and don't forget to set the blow lamp to "flare" so you can do all the screws at once

  • Quote from Spydiepeat: “I get the feeling Spydie hardware must comes from different places and manufacturers. The Para2 in S30V screws are great whereas I had to frankenstein my Gin1 UKPK screws into flatheads after the first strip ” You just needed a bigger hammer

  • Totally understand @Spydiepeat , I've lost count the amount of times I've seen a statement like this on a forum "I never liked the look of Spyderco knives , they always looked ugly or awkward, until I bought one and it just worked" I said it myself once upon a time and a few thousand pounds ago

  • Considering the amount of threads that get started or comments on sheared / mashed/ rounded out screws I really Can't see this ending well for Spydercos customers services ... (Hidden Content)

  • Often overlooked when just comparing raw materials is the decades of experience, production scale and after sales care , if you email Daniel , Daniel will email you back I'm Happy to pay for all that

  • Will update with thoughts later edgematters.uk/attachment/3241…6fcae80e392dbc2b30508963d

  • I'll say the same here as in this thread :Wooden handles.... Quote from Jimmypie: “Look after it and it'll look after you , with basic knife care and the right wood in place you don't need it stabilised . Winkler-II knives are mostly a very hard & dense maple , haven't seen any failures "just because" but I have seen chipped and split grips due to borderline abuse and neglect , if it gets soaking , I mean immersed then don't put it on a radiator and try and dry it out in 10minutes , Don't use it…

  • Ok .. I've been mucked around twice on eBay on this so a one time drop to £60 all inc of shipping and PayPal for a like brand new & boxed LED driven Surefire torch .

  • No no .. Cheap fix as in "it's 2am and I need this knife in my life" then it arrives ..its crap . And your forced to do the sale of shame and sell it at 50% of what you paid

  • im not the biggest fan of the brand at all , much like CRKT and Gerber I've had my time with them, I cut my teeth and nearly my wrists over QC on plenty of the models in my early knifey life ...and later on too . but then they always come up with something that tries to lure me in ...

  • Honestly haven't looked at the prices since release , it put me off , but the US prices are only really relevant to me if they will actually let me buy it .
