Lol! This review makes me inch closer and closer ...

Re: K390 FRN models - Has Seki improved the edge angles or sharpness?

The factory edge on my Dragonfly K390 is beautiful. It's definitely up to Spyderco standards.

Re: Official 2021 Discontinued List

Looks like I need to grab a tusk and a chinook. I’ve been wanting a tusk for a long time. So I guess now is the time to pull the trigger.

Re: How About A High Caliber Hawkbill?

http://knifenewsroom.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/Hawkbill_Header.jpg I would love a locking and a slip joint hawk billed blade with the spidie hole towards the tip where the fingernail groove is. Spyderco could do something similar by creating a Swayback with a hawkbill blade. Slysz design would...

Re: Chaparral Lightweight

I’ve never found the lock bar on my Chap LM uncomfortable. It is narrow but it’s not so stiff as to be hard to use. One issue I have with my Chap LW is that the slots for the wire clip aren’t quite deep enough - the clip slipped out and damaged my scale. But as I understand it this has been fixed in...

Re: Power Lock

I agree it would be nice to see a back lock Millie, and a power lock seems like a good choice for that platform.

An Endura would be great as would a Straight Spine Stretch!
You are reading my mind! The new XL Straight Spine Stretch that will come out one day would be a good choice, too.
I’d definitely buy an SS Stretch in this config.

Re: Spyderco’s best kept secret

Hi Marius, To tell you the truth, I was a little intimidated to open the thread. Oh uh, what does Marius know? Thanx for the kind words. Passion is a good thing. As far as what I like? I do enjoy the using of the tool. You can't "know" the spirit of the design without using it. It also gives me the...

Re: Shaman: Primal instincts?

As I understand it, Eric is planning an FRN model in addition to what I'm currently working on. the issue is capacity in Golden. So as models are put into queue, the time line increases. al Thanks for that little bit of news. I know y’all have so much in the works but I’m glad to hear an FRN Shaman...

Re: Shaman: Primal instincts?

The lighter Shaman is not FRN. sal Eh well, even a lighter version in G10 will be welcome. But I’d love to see one in FRN someday :) At least Sal once asked if there´d be "any interest in an FRN Shaman in K390": See here (at the end of the post): https://forum.spyderco.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=86153...

Re: How often do they restock?

I’m in the same boat - vet so I get the discount as well. It really is an amazing discount Spyderco provides, but it somewhat limits availability since SFO is often out of stock. But they almost always restock eventually. Just keep checking back :)

Re: Shaman: Primal instincts?

I’m really looking forward to a Shaman LW. I love my Shaman but find it a bit bulky for EDC. I usually like to EDC lightweight models. My current favorite is my Goddard LW. So I’m glad a Shaman LW is in the works.

I saw a fully serrated Lum Chinese in green Alamite sell for $108 on eBay the other day. I was bidding but got outbid and slept thru the end of auction. I was so mad at myself!

Re: Any interest in the return of models like the pingo?

I just picked to an orange FRN Pingo a few weeks ago. I absolutely love it. I’d be down for any variations.
