MILITARY C36PIN PART IV: Deep Carry Clip in Titanium

After the part III where I built a patina by worshipping various acids, here comes the part IV of improving my old classic Spyderco: installing a better clip. My first attempt in custom deep carry titanium clip has not be good. It was for…

From M2HSS to CPM-M4 — Hightech Peasant Knives and why I love them.

I always wanted a Old Timer feeling on a Nasa tool. Grandpa’s knife update, a workhorse with the latest tech but asking for the same care as the previous 20th century generation used to provide to their pocket knives. Back in the 90’s I…

Spyderco C36 CPM M4 – Building a Patina

“After building a Patina, coat it with cheese.” This is an old trick Fred Perrin used to do just un case someone asked him about his knife: – Is it a weapon? – Nope I eat a lot of cheese. But the cheese grease…

SPYDERCO MILITARY C36PIN PART III: WHITTLING WITH GHOST.

We all know that the steel is only 30 percent of the equation for a great blade. And I’m not talking about the whole knife — ergonomy, lock quality, sheath, clip —  just the blade: the main “Matter Separator” to quote Sal Glesser. Apart…

The Mantra 2 is Eric Glesser’s design and is one of a kind Spyderco as its blade’s hole is only here as a trademark. Your only way to flick the knife open is the flipper invented by Kit Carson at the end of the…

Spyderco Military CPM CRU-WEAR ~ C36GGY – Fifty Shades of Grey

A smooth G10 handle after some sanding. Back in 1996 I was handling my first Military. It was a CPM440V (S60V) blade with a black G10. Here the link to our old review Fred Perrin and I back in the Geocities’times. Since, well, the…

Sprint Run Spyderco Military C36 with M390 Steel

Imagine a C36 Military with Carbon Fiber handle instead of G10, dual liners when my old Millie in CPM440V got only one and a black aluminium back spacer… now Imagine the chance to test the best steel in the Sprint Runs manufactured in Golden……
