    Spyderco Quality Control Declining?

    Perhaps a better way of putting it is that I don't like the lock sticking when I press it to close the knife. Again, not a deal breaker for the knife. It still works as intended. Just not quite as enjoyable to carry.

    Spyderco Quality Control Declining?

    Huge Spyderco fan here. I bought at least a dozen last year and already two this year. I'd have to say that in general I'm still seeing an upward trend in quality (especially when it comes to the heat treats!), but, alas, not everywhere. The issue that continues to occasionally pop up is the...

    M4 vs M390

    I'm a Para 3 hoarder. It's a sickness, I know, but one that allows me to speak to the performance of many steels in that format. M4 - This steel will patina and rust. Mine did, and if that bothers you look elsewhere. If you don't care about that, or live in an arid climate, it's a...

    If I could go to Spyderco's website and order a Para 3 in S90V steel and Micarta scales, I would do it. I would do it right now.

    Knife scam sites (knifesilo.com and others)

    Do Not order from Kinfe Silo! They have my home address and phone number listed for their contact info! I've never heard of them. Now, I'm getting 10 calls per day from frustrated people. It sucks...

    Sebenza Maintenance

    Okay, will do. My biggest concern is mixing up the screws and the fasteners. Any issues with this? Also, when I push out the lockbar the blade swings back and forth freely. It's perfectly smooth, so it appears that the issue is the pressure being applied by the lockbar.

    Sebenza Maintenance

    I have a question that I'm sure has been answered. Please forgive me if I'm asking in the wrong place. I disassembled my small 21 Insingo last night to clean it and relube everything. I think I may have mixed up some of the screws and spacers. When I reassembled it the blade is perfectly...
