Re: Mr. Lester DeAsis passes

Sad to hear this. I had some pleasant conversations with him in years past and still have a handful of the iconic models produced.

Me too. Had "Kit" Carson build me this Model 4 in (then 420V) back in the 90's:

Also have a neck knife in the same steel received as a gift from Darrel Ralph a year or two later. I wear it daily.

Re: BHQ Shaman Exclusive DLC/M4

The intersection of price and demand will be interesting to monitor going forward. I don't doubt that larger supply and somewhat tempered demand, (based upon the combination of (higher) price, and enthusiasm (or lack thereof) for the steel and scales), will have something to do with how long the exc...

Re: Spyderco’s For Law Enforcement?

I've carried several Spyderco knives in plain clothes federal L.E., as well as SRT. From Military down to Calypso Jr. size. All were useful daily companions. I never resorted to one for defensive use nor used any as a pry bar. As a cutting tool, any of them will be hard to beat. If you need a stoute...

Re: TKJ Spyderco exclusive cruwear ????

Messaged him Thursday after seeing other people getting theirs. They response literally was, “just because one persons item shipped, doesn’t mean email me and ask me about your order!”. I’ll happily post screenshots of our conversation for the naysayers. It absolutely left a sour taste in my mouth....

:spyder: Nobody liked the KC exclusive, smooth black G10 PM2 Cruwear either.
Correct. I'm nobody and I like it. (PM2 and Para 3.) Then again I have several smooth scaled "traditional" knives so it never presented an issue for me.

Re: TKJ Spyderco exclusive cruwear ????

You can't lose If you don't play the game.

Is a dealer exclusive or a sprint worth the emotional investment and turmoil some folks experience? It's beyond "first world problems" imho.

Re: Sprints

I just saw the Shabazz video in this...agree with everything he said, especially the part about flippers being the lowest form of life in existence . I guess I look at it from a non collector perspective . Much as I have little use for "flippers" and have stated so here and elsewhere, that particul...

Re: Sprints

Well, Jim, you may think it's politics and that's your right. Some things are. Mostly it's a practical application of resources and manpower, with the most serious crimes getting the most focus.

You seem to have your mind made up so I'll not waste either one of our time expounding further.

Re: Sprints

Regardless of whether it's legal or not, this all sounds like a tremendous waste of law enforcement's time over a few people missing out on a pocket knife. It wouldn't meet the threshold for investigation (or prosecution) in my experience, even if it met the underlying statutory requirements. Yeah,...

Re: Sprints

That it has come to this level of angst and gnashing of teeth is sad in and of itself.

I remember when buying custom and production knives was fun.

Re: TKJ Spyderco exclusive cruwear ????

He did a preorder? I guess buying a limited Spyderco is now like catching a unicorn? If that is what the future holds I am gonna direct my attention elsewhere. Join the club. It is unfortunate, but between the price increases and the need to prepare to jump on (by design) limited opportunities, it ...
