Any news or rumors about a sprint, exclusive, or regular production version of the Sage 5 LW in another steel? I would like to try one, but don't want any more S30V (or black scales ). Cruwear and K390 would be my first choices.
I regularly carry :spyder: s loose in my pocket (sans clip). I only do this with backlocks, as they are the only ones I trust to not accidentally open in my pocket. Fortunately, I’ve never had a serious cut or injury from accidental pocket opening of a non-backlock. I've had enough close calls to kn...
I didn't read the whole thread, so this may have already been addressed. If you ever want to carry the knife loose in a pocket (as opposed to clipped), the backlock is the only one I trust to not accidentally open in my pocket.
As far as I can tell, the handles for the Salt 2 and Tasman Salt 2 are identical. It also seems to be the case with the Delica 4 and Lil Matriarch handles. That’s why I’m thinking a hawkbill blade in the Delica 4 handle would not involve expensive new FRN molds. I guess only knows for sure.
I have a Boltaron sheath for my Province scheduled to arrive on Thursday, and was wondering if anyone has pics of the Province with this sheath? I did a search and could only find the stock pic of the sheath by itself.
I'm wondering how difficult it would be to fit the Delica 4 handle with a hawkbill blade? I'm pretty sure there will be an LC200N Tasman Salt 2 forthcoming, but what I’m really looking for is an updated version of the Merlin, with a FFG K390 blade
Sal has said the maker is willing/able to work with K390. I’d love to see K390 right out of the gate, but I think the initial version is likely to be VG-10, or another stainless, and understand why that makes sense.
I have the K390 Endela, and like it, but I chose the Stretch for the finger choil and blade shape (straight section and more belly). I have the regular Stretch in V-Toku2, but am looking forward to the SS. I know I prefer the look, and anticipate I will prefer it functionally as well.
Not to rain on my own parade, but I realized that the Morans are done by a different Japanese maker than the one producing the current K390 models. They may not be able, or willing, to work with K390 :( This would apply to the Perrin Street Bowie & Street Beat, as well. Only Sal/Spyderco can say for...
