    Not completely. Watch out for radioactive Spyderco's! I don't even want to imagine what could happen if you got bitten by one right after licking off your carbon steel broadsword :frantic:

    I liked this one on steelreviews, too, but it's a bit big for my taste...

    It's so light for it's size thought, as this is the aluminium handle version. It's slimmer than a sebenza 25 too, just.

    Liking it, though it is taking a lot of breaking in, sticky lock and scrapy detent. Seems to be a common issue though.

    Usually disassembling, cleaning, lubing helps a lot.. Or if you have it blow it out with compressed air. But it runs on bearings so a good lube would do no harm :)

    I've done what I can, but as it's not a custom it didn't come with pivot tools, so until I pluck up courage to open it with needle nosed pliers or spend another $40 on tools all I can do it get graphite on as many surfaces as possible, lube it up and fidget with it constantly.

    I don't think it's an issue, just breaking in. It is improving slowly.

    Your burnishing and stitching are top notch. I've played around a little bit with leather working, and if I could produce this quality, I'd probably quit my job and open a shop somewhere
