Re: C-60 Ayoob Campaign: No I Won't Shut Up

Anyone know if a knife is discontinued for a year or two and stated as "discontinued," has Spyderco ever re-released a Sprint run of such knife again? Yes, there have been multiple releases of discontinued knives, however the sprints are never exactly the same as each other. So there is still a goo...

Re: C-60 Ayoob Campaign: No I Won't Shut Up

I have an original in SE and a sprint in PE, so I'm not likely to buy another. However, I still encourage Spyderco to make another sprint for those who have missed out.

Id like to have a coffee cup also,,,,,

Maybe Spyderco could team up with RTIC and have some tumblers, water bottles, or can coolers made.

I would definitely buy.
RTIC produces some good quality items and I think it would be a great fit.

Hi AUXCOM,

The Joule has been put on hold in favor of some other of Michael's designs, which are being worked on..

Very good news, thanks Sal!

@Spydernut Also good news, congratulations on both bits of news.

Re: Swayback Lookout Thread

Mine has become easier to open one-handed now, but I think it is more likely that my thumb has become more accustomed to the slightly different technique needed to open it. The clip remains a literal sore point, however. I really need to stop stalling and order an aftermarket clip.

Re: TeroTuf!

How much moisture do TeroTuf scales absorb? I had an idea to use some for a LC200N Mule scales.

Re: Current Blade Steel on Spyderco Cat? spec sheet vs etch

My 2 month old Cat came with BD1N steel. Many sellers do not update their pictures as they should.

Re: Gentleman Jess(Baby Horn)

I am onboard with this idea, but I also think it is important to keep it grounded in what "can be" vs what we want it to be. With the current model not selling out quickly, I'm guessing it will be awhile before Sal & crew are onboard with us.

Re: Gentleman Jess(Baby Horn)

Sal is usually reticent to move tooling between makers. He's mentioned that several times, so again unlikely to happen.

Re: Gentleman Jess(Baby Horn)

I’d love a fancy Jess Horn, but wishes will have to meet materials Spyderco is willing to work with in whichever factory is chosen to produce it. Likely one in Japan like the originals and that may rule out Vanax, etc.

Re: Damascus UK Penknife UKPK - HANDLE OPTIONS

G10 Ivory Smooth like the lil Nilakka +1 In my opinion, a Damascus blade should be paired with a handle that is elegant, but simple so that it doesn't draw attention away from it. Contoured and polished G10 or Micarta would be ideal and ivory or white would be an excellent choice. Yes and yes. It w...

Honestly, if it were up to me, I'd want to see a Baby Horn with the kitchen sink thrown at it.

That would be allllright!

Re: Damascus UK Penknife UKPK - HANDLE OPTIONS

Again, prices in the UK & Europe will be higher than US MAP. I hope our overseas friends get a very nice knife that they can actually carry AND afford.
This seems like wise advice from Sal "the blade is the art and the handle is the frame, not to "upstage" the blade".

Re: tops tools

So, the Rock Salt, Tuff, Darn Dao, Szabo Folder, Szabo Hawk, Hobbit Warrior, Ronin, Yojimbo, and Yojumbo do not appeal to you either?
I find Tops over-priced for what they offer, but most of their designs are just modifications to traditional fixed blade designs, with exceptions of course.

Re: Latest on the Joule?

I'd be happy to see any of his other designs become available as Spyderco Collabs. Foremost the Tuxedo Trapper, then the Grande. The Joule is interesting, but I'd need to see more pictures or hold one to really make up my mind.
