    dang those spyderco bites dont feel nice....

    To not high jack an earlier thread here ya go. I just got my new edc in the mail 20 minutes ago, its a spyderco delica wave and as was stated earlier in the week "its not your knife till youve cut yourself". Haha well its definitely already my knife within the first 20 min. Trying to get used to all the mechanics of a new knife to replace my kershaw blur and what do you know its not real easy to close one handed!

    I tried to and flicked a little too hard and the serrated part of the combo blade decided to embed itself right on my first knuckle!!!!! Probably could use a few stitches but I just started a new job and am waiting for the insurance to kick in so we will make do! Careful with those spydercos! They are as sharp as claimed right out of the box!

    Super Glue works wonders.

    I prefer superglue over stitches.

    Am I the only one who never cuts myself with my knives? The last time I cut myself must have been like 10 years ago whittling bamboo with an X-acto

    Funny you ask, I was feeling all high and mighty earlier in the week but a little more humble now. Guess there is a first for everything! I did use superglue on a friends finger once when we where in mexico(you dont want doctors in mexico stitching you up) didnt even think about it. Thanks for the reminder!

    Superglue works wonders, the people I usually get blades from send band-aids with the knives, its awfully thoughtful of them.

    I own both the Delica (now called the Delica 3), and an Endura Waved. I also used to carry a Endura CE (now called the Endura 3 CE). I always one handed those knives. The kick is supposed to protect your finger. Just make sure your index finger is where it can catch the kick, and it should be fine. Of course, if your finger is too far back from the tang... Did that once myself not ten minutes after getting my orange Rescue Jr. Hadn't even left the store parking lot yet.

    Aloha yankeeman,

    One of my co-workers did the same thing as you...but he was messing with my Spyderco Matriarch! Next thing i know, I hear my knife drop, see him holding his thumb leaving a blood trail, looking for the first aid kit!

    One thing I advocate is this, regardless if the opening "device" is a Hole, disc, or stud: PRESS the knife opened. Find whatever it is with your thumb, be it disc or whatever, and "dig" into it a bit with some pressure and PRESS it open.

    I have seen "flickers" not always get the knife opened due to wrong thumb placement, change in pressure, etc...However:

    Once you learn how to PRESS the blade open, (by this I mean keep pressure on the blade while opening, until you hear the *click* assuring you it's locked open) you can then PRESS and DETACH...sorta like a flick, and the knife will open as fast as any auto, but you will keep you thumb SAFE because you will learn how to DETACH safely from your blade upon opening. *Trust me on this*.

    I have seen a lotta flickers end up with thumb wounds...

    God bless and take care!!!

    I bought my Kershaw because while I was looking at it in the store I cut myself and bleed all over the knife and the counter. The guys behind the counter says, " I sell a lot of knifes this way".
