Re: Crazy Good Deals Part 2!!

The Bradley Bowie, Proficient and Chinook 4 prices seem either steep or uninspiring on Sierra's site but the Aqua Salt is at half of MSRP, which is pretty good IMO.

Guess I'll try Dack now that I see more good reports about them.

Re: getting manix 2 smooth

Klaatu...Barata...N(sneezes)! (thread resurrects) I just got my first LW Manix 2 a few months ago, a secondhand (but apparently NIB or with no obvious wear) Maxamet model, and it was far and away the stiffest spyderco I've ever used. Couldn't close it with one hand, not flickable by any method, etc....

Re: 2020 Seconds Sale - SOLD OUT!

I expected it to be much harder actually. A small site being hammered far more than ever before, with flippers using automation to snag many items. I couldn't get most of the rarer stuff, but I got lots of great users, a couple of interesting less conspicuous models, and I spent maybe 1/3-1/2 of wha...

Re: 2020 Seconds Sale - BREAKING NEWS

I bought a nightstick. I thought it was a nice design and I've really been appreciating Gayle Bradley's designs lately - less than half of street was good and I missed the shaman and spydiechef, so I decided to grab another Z cut and it. I think I bought 3 Z cuts, the paratas, the respect (that thin...

Re: 2020 Seconds Sale - BREAKING NEWS

A buddy of mine wanted to try a Parata, and so did I. He was a bit short today, so I just ordered 2 - saved the shipping and we both get to try these for about half of street price. Can't complain about that! Wouldn't your buddy be the same height every day? Did you just assume his compliance with ...

Re: Seconds Sale, what are you hoping to snag?

There was a Warrior Hawk drop for $187. I tried to grab one but it was sold out by the time I saw it. Will watch tomorrow, I would jump on a Szabohawk, I love Laci's designs.

Hoping for one of the hatchet models or something in the native family. Already got a Maxamet PM2 this morning.
They dropped the Genzow Hatchet about an horu and a half ago I think. Hope you landed one.

Re: Spyderco Online Seconds Sale FAQ

I've had good luck on most things I've tried to order after a couple of sprint runs got snagged as I tried to check them out. I'm just grabbing anything I might use, which is basically the whole catalog so I am getting a ton of knives that will make good users or impromptu gifts for someone who coul...

Re: 2020 Seconds Sale - BREAKING NEWS

They appear to be adding inventory every couple of hours. I'm guessing that's mostly going to be a business hours kind of thing. Thanks, Spydercrew! I honestly expected everything to be flattened out and only flippers with specialized setups to get anything good. The rarer stuff can be harder to get...

More has been posted now... Police 4 g10, fish hunter, etc Saw digicam para 2 and para 3's and a $16 6" se utility kitchen knife i wish i saw when i ordered the police! I'm guessing the police went pretty quickly. If you'd waited, it would have likely been snapped up. I know i wet for it when I saw...

Re: Spyderco Online Seconds Sale FAQ

Will continue to watch this. I saw a lot of things not changing (possibly more common or less sought after items) but that some things were added later. I'm not complaining by any means - the biggest concern I had was that only ebay flippers with specialized setups would get these, and I feel like w...

Re: 2020 Seconds Sale - BREAKING NEWS

Definitely looking forward to this. I think having it spread out over 3 business days will almost guarantee everyone who tries has a shot at a deal or two - it will likely be slammed to the point of not responding or generating errors, but after doing hundreds of anticipated online sales, I can tell...

S30V is a nice touch on that Endura. I was happy with the damascus version I just got but am considering this.

Re: Crazy Good Deals Part 2!!

I remember a $25 walmart sale, I think they were liquidating in-store stock. Heard of someone getting I think a PM3 for 25 or maybe 50.

Thanks, spydergirl88, I would have jumped on that if not late.

Re: Crazy Good Deals Part 2!!

I'm stoked about the upcoming seconds sale. The knifecenter prices I posted are from their pre-BF sale. The Lil' Temp is also a good price, but Amazon has it even cheaper (couldn't resist at $115). Tempted to get that REX-45 Mili but I already have the origin M4 mili with the titanium fame lock. Lea...

Re: Crazy Good Deals Part 2!!

I doubt that we are gonna find the Bowie for less than $200. That deal would qualify as crazy. :D I paid 199.95 for the Bradley bowie and 159.95 for the Chinook today at KC. Unless you mean a different bowie, like the Respect or something. Agreed with others a deep discount on the Tusk would be awe...

Re: Crazy Good Deals Part 2!!

Oh man. Bradley bowie and Chinook 4 are more than 50% off. I don't think they're going to get much cheaper than that.

Thanks for the knifecenter tip, CG!

Re: Crazy Good Deals Part 2!!

I saw this and felt like I had to bite - I missed out on the mule and most Damascus type steel models cost quite a bit more. Not sure why this isn't sold out - 10 bucks to have damascus steel over a standard Endura seems like a deal to me, but maybe everyone here found better deals. No idea. https:/...

Re: Crazy Good Deals Part 2!!

Dvor.com doesn't seem to have anything other than a hanan, a bug decal and a tshirt now, but opticsplanet has lots of models. Looks like the Carribbean is about 20 dollars more than this special, 12 or 13 more for the SE sheepsfoot version.
