    Weekend Warrior! I liked that one. :thumbup:

    My pleasure. :thumbup:

    I`t a Sebertool, made in the USA. This is no joke, i`t an very strong and usefull little tool, easy to carry on a key ring.

    Yesterday I ran into a sharpening issue with my Para 3. No matter what I did, I just couldn't get rid of the burr. I decided to take it to the diamond stones, and then finished up on the white Sharpmaker stones. This is the first time I've ever had this issue with a Spyderco, but as thin as the grind is, I guess it's possible the heat treat was a little screwy right at the edge. It looks like I got rid of any weak steel, because it seems to sharpen up just fine now.

    Yes. Some can also be found on sites rhyming with marathon and fadehq.

    I really wanted a Para 3 until I saw the picture of it next to the Delica. Seems like a souped up version of the Delica with a different lock. I'm a little disappointed but hey, every knife doesn't work for everyone.

    Allen Putman makes some really nice scales

    Right hand clip side is the stepped side of the pivot. Very crucial when you go to adjust pivot tension, as the stepped side is different on different models.

    All assembled with perfect fit and finish!
