Re: Spyderco Mosquito Sprint

All this over some gifts 2 decades ago... Wow. Mystery is good, ya know. Not every detail of spyderco history has to be written down. Sal said he made them, Joyce said they were then given out as gifts. Good enough for me, obviously not good enough for some. I'm sorry Spydergirl88 if you feel rubbe...

Re: Spyderco Mosquito Sprint

Seems like Sal answered the question on the first page... By using context clues one can come to the following conclusion: Sal made them, he frequents Europe, Wouter lives in Europe, Wouter and Sal attend the Amsterdam meet together... Sal gives one to Wouter's friend. Maybe it didn't happen exactl...

Re: Spyderco Mosquito Sprint

Page 1 of this thread bro As Mushroom mentioned, nowhere on page one is there a statement from Sal of what was claimed. I know and never doubted the origin of this item, as I have discussed the mosquito with Sal myself long ago. I have yet to see however, anything connecting these specifically to t...

Re: Spyderco Mosquito Sprint

I believe it to be fact. It was stated on this forum, by Sal himself. He has no reason to lie. haha obviously no one on this forum would dare to deny the words from the man himself, which is why If you ever some across that statement in the annals of this forum I would be very appreciative to see t...

Re: Spyderco Mosquito Sprint

Sal made them as gifts for an Amsterdam meet, long ago. Hey just curious if you know this to be fact... I've been wishing for a mosquito for my ladybug collection for about 12 years and the only one I ever saw for sale was ridiculously priced on ebay. In all that time I never heard anyone say anyth...

Re: Pattern on G10 - How do they do it?

This is "peel ply" g10. It gets that texture through its own manufacturing and production process. The raw sheet of G10 has a thin layer of plastic that contains the texture on one side. It would appear smooth on both sides until that texture layer is removed, or "peeled" off. After scales are cut ...

Re: Spyderco Dealer/Distributor Exclusives from JAN 2018 to MAR 2020 (2+ years - 27 months)

Thank you Sir! :spyder: I don't see the Manix2 CPM-M4 Satin Blade Natural G-10 BladeHQ (USA) When did it drop? I can't remember if it was just before, or after the DLC version. None of the BHQ M4 DLC came before their satin bladed counterparts. If i remember correctly, the satin was Nov of 2017, th...

Re: Spyderco Models From 2010 & Earlier That You Wish To Return

Kris. That's a very interesting request VASH :cool: That KRIS model over the years has had one of the most enduring cult followings of about any the Spyderco "specialty" models. I regret that I passed on two trades where I could have had one of those. It's one of the very few from that period that ...

Re: Large slipjoint Spydie, anyone?

Not sure if anyone mentioned the C131. Terzuola Slipit is listed just a tad longer blade length than the PITS. For the OP I think the aftermarket price may be prohibitive, but I threw it in there anyway.

Re: 2020 Spyderco Product Guide

The Galley “V” is an old product from former years and long time out of production. As I saw it in the PDF I really was happy to see it again and I was gutted about the fact it wasn't in the price list. Considering that the galley V is functionally the exact same sharpener as the gauntlet at a diff...

Re: BladeHQ M4 Jade Dodo

Ergos? I've read some accounts of the great ergos of the Dodo allowing for a full 4 finger grip. I'm wondering what size hands it's best suited for. With those grooves I can't imagine that it fits any hand size. So for those of you who have one or have handled one - comfortable for your hand and wh...
