Re: How About A High Caliber Hawkbill?

Sure but I'd also be happy with another Sprint of the Superhawk in FRN. Maybe LC200N and green.

Re: Discontinued List 2021 Speculation Thread

Inventories might be lower than usual in general because of production constraints. If so, I would expect fewer discontinued models would be discounted.

No idea but Campsaver adjusted the estimated date for my order until Feb 2021!

I've gifted a couple and owned a couple. None now. I'm waiting on the bird's eye.

Re: Power Lock

Taller grind or a hollow grind.

Can someone who has a knife with the Powerlock confirm if it is tightly locked up when open? Or does it have a little vertical play, like some of the Seki lockbacks?
The two that I had had zero (vertical) up and down play.

Re: Power Lock

I owned the Chinook and the Tatanka. I thought the Powerlock was nice. It would be cool to see another XL with a Powerlock.

Re: Pac salt green frn lc200n shipping to dealers!

I'm bummed out because I'm afraid to buy another. I'm not super picky about up and down on a lockback. I know what to expect but this was worse than normal. I would have been curious to open it up. Still considering getting a RockJumper or Endura Wharnie. I don't have a serrated Spydie and I'm itchi...

Re: Watu - aftermarket scales?

Maybe Knifecenter will order an exclusive with the pakkawood. After all the beautiful koa and walnut, pakkawood would be such a letdown ;) Yeah, the pakkawood isn't great but for a factory "wood " option it's not bad. I don't love the Watu enough to buy one and customize it but I would be intereste...

Re: Pac salt green frn lc200n shipping to dealers!

I tightened the pivot on mine to reduce side to side play but the up and down play was the worst I've seen on a new Spyderco lockback. Was it a fluke? I returned it. I had an H-1 Pac Salt with very minimal up and down play. I had a sprint run Superhawk with very minimal play. Enduras, Delicas, Drago...

Re: Wharncliffe's

I do like the Wharnies that Spyderco is putting out. A high hollow/ flat grind would be interesting. Anything that results in a more slicey knife is appealing to me. The uniqueness of that grind would have some extra appeal.

Re: Please Pardon the shameful sales pitch - Rock Jumper

Any photo out there showing it closed, resting on the back so we can see the spine tip? Not sure what you mean....do you want to see the tip of the blade closed inside the handle? Hi thanks, I meant the tip of the blade closed inside the handle. I was curious about the amount of "extra room." It's ...

Re: What happened with the mantra?

It just didn't work out for the Mantra. Gen 1 had bearing issues and the Mantra 3 has that ugly recurve. So none of them reached their potential. I bought the Mantra 2 on closeout and reground it so now it slices well. Action isn't terrible. Lockup is very late but solid. It carries beautifully. I l...

Re: Anyone got the SE Endura Wharncliffe?

I keep going back and forth between this, the Rockjumper, and the Pac Salt 2. I think I'll go with the Pac Salt 2 because the rust proof seems like a freebie. I don't need extreme corrosion resistance normally but I might on occasion and the knife doesn't seem to give much up. Which one are you lea...
