There will absolutely be micarta.
Hi Jordan, will one of your go-to scale makers be “Ripp-ing” out these custom scales by any chance, or is it someone new? Thanks! :)

Re: DLT Kapara Exclusive!

So in anticipation of this one, I ordered a blue backspacer direct from Alistair Philips. I think it'll look great with the grey. Fingers crossed I can get the knife to go with it! Kapara is a red backed spider, reason for the red back spacer. Me personally would leave it as is. But yes, different ...

Re: Cutleryshoppe Exclusive Native Chief, DLC CTS-XHP, Orange G10

I’m a bit saddened by those comments about RIT dyeing the orange G10 black given how rare those exclusive color scales are in general. I know it means buying a second regular black G10 Chief, but I would do that, swap the scales, and then sell off the NIB orange S30V one for the same price (or more)...

Re: Retire The PM2?

I have zero issues taking apart PM2s and swapping them as I please. There are tools out there that specifically deal with lanyard tube removal (not the method your buddy Thomas likes). If you want 3D contoured scales, those are available from Aramis Akhmedov and other makers. Plus if they “retired t...

What’s a Griptillian? ;) (Never bought a BM, never will, even though they’re a few miles away from me.)

An awesome pic from the Spyderco IG page that needs to be shown off here too!

Re: DLT Kapara Exclusive!

I am very excited about this exclusive, the Kapara was a Knife of the Year for me. As for the G10 scales, while they are smooth, they are not fully polished and buffed like the orange G10 scales on the Positron, rather a flat matte (unbuffed) finish like the scales on the Bombshell and Subvert. I'm ...

Re: Let’s see your Urbans

Oh! On my monitor the Roadie looks chocolate, but yours looks coyote. I thought it was a fancy RIT job. So, the brown Roadie is coyote? It’s exactly the same color as the AEB-L Urban. Which of course means we now need an olive green Urban as well (not to mention an orange one and a blue one). https...

Seriously?!? It’s coyote brown, a color I’m pretty sure you specifically requested!

Yes, from a while back now.

Some “experts” on IG are calling this a “Radioactive” color scheme — apparently those people have a Homer Simpson’s-level of nuclear physics knowledge.

Re: Let’s see your Urbans

K390 and LC200N would be great options. I don’t really need a slipjoint larger than the Urban. There already is a K390 Urban. I also sold my Elmax BB and original K390 Urban (with my CC number) in a mad fit of “slimming down” and regret it immensely. I managed to find this K390 one on eBay recently...

Re: Cutleryshoppe Exclusive Native Chief, DLC CTS-XHP, Orange G10

This is the Chief I’ve been referring to for a while... I’m a bit sad to see it in DLC first, was kind of hoping for a satin blade. Might be time for a blade swap with the CF S90V one, since orange/S90V is also a CS theme. ;) Pics courtesy of Cutlery Shoppe: https://i.imgur.com/zJDOb3i.jpg https://i...

Re: Compression Lock Patent - Expired?

I have a most excellent compression lock Pulsar made by Jesse Jarosz probably six or more years ago. Custom makers could use the comp lock if permission was granted from Spyderco (which it was, in fact I recall a hilarious conversation between Sal and Eric about it when I showed it to them at an OKC...

Not blue pearl Kirinite, but rather blue snakeskin Juma, but you get the drift. Images courtesy of the infamous Steve Ketchen (retired).
