Re: Seconds Sale.

@PikesPeaker suggest you change the topic title to "2019 Seconds Sale" for posterity. I got there around 1300 and was shopping around 1400. Spent about 1.5 hours inside and found one of the ones I was looking for. Overall, I felt like I saw fewer sprints this year than in years past. IMG_2172-50pct....

Re: Spyderco for firefighter

I used a Native for wildland firefighting where weight was more of a concern than "hard use". The discontinued Never Summer/National Fallen Firefighters Foundation Native seems like an obvious option and can be found on eBay...

Re: Para 3 Lefty?

It seems like the Para 3 is popular enough to justify a Left Hand model in black S30V. I would certainly buy one after trying the right hand version, which I like better than the Para 2.

Re: Salt Series UKPK

Yellow FRN & LC200N sounds great to me. I think it would make a nice lightweight backpacking/camping utility knife.

Drop Point vs. Leaf Shape (UKPK)

Sal has mentioned that "the market seems to prefer leaf blades" , but I thought it would be informative/interesting to see what this market thinks. I'm specifically thinking of the UKPK, but feel free to comment on other models. It would be nice if every version of the UKPK came in both shapes, but ...

Re: Uk Penknife Maxamet?

Gray FRN & Maxamet sounds good to me. If it's G10, then I hope it uses the current split spring NOT the older full length spring. There has been a lot of interest in bringing back a G10 version, but the older full length spring makes it very difficult to change the clip and/or reassemble . I prefer ...

Hi Foofie,

We're working on a Salt version. Heat treating the spring is challenging. What is it you (or others) would like to see?

sal

I think a yellow FRN version would make a nice lightweight backpacking/camping utility knife. Preferably in LC200N.

Re: New? Immerse!

Good advice Sal. For me, this will be the Para 3. As a lefty, the Para series has historically not been a good fit. I've tried the Para 2 Left Hand, but as good as it feels, it's still in that 3.5" anti-goldilocks zone for me where I'd rather carry something larger like the Military or the Police 4,...

Re: Spyderco Seconds Sale 2018!

Thanks for another Seconds Sale Spyderco! This was my fourth one and overall I found what I was looking for (Natives, UKPKs) along with several surprises. I arrived later than in the past (1430), but the line was inside the door at about the reception desk and it took about 1h30m to get in to the sa...

Re: Police4 FRN ETA

In addition to all black or all blue FRN, a black/blue Zome FRN would make sense and probably look nice as well.

Dark blue? Like a police uniform? I think most people would be okay with a midnight blue. :) That’s my vote.
Agreed. Navy blue or like denim blue.

A dark blue like the Emerson Openers makes a lot of sense. However, my prediction is black and if I could choose it'd be foliage green.
