Re: Sage 5 Lightweight Frenzy

The chaparral is the best sage model. Change my mind. It's a Chaparral, not a Sage I do agree that the Chaparral has the same general shape but it would have to grow a little to actually be a Sage model. Y’all aren’t changing my mind. :D If spyderco called the chaparral the Sage 7 no one would blin...

Re: Sage 5 Lightweight Frenzy

I do get that. However as a collector of the Sages i am primarily interested in the different locks, again i have no interest in collecting umpteen variations on existing models. This is pretty much how I feel. I'm fine with variations of the Sage 5 LW. In fact I've been waiting for something a lit...

Re: Sage 5 Lightweight Frenzy

Probably in reference to the return of the Sage 1 in Maxamet, but I don’t entirely share their opinion. Correct. AFAIK the Sage series is about different locks on a common blade configuration and that's what i want to see, not another PM2 Carnival of infinite variations of the same. Yes, that was t...

Re: What is your dream car if you had unlimited money?

My problem is I like variety and I have trouble with settling on one just one of anything I like (guns, knives, etc). I could easily have the same issue with nice cars. The scenario I described above was a crazy money dream thing and would obviously be adjusted depending on the amount of craziness. ...

Re: What is your dream car if you had unlimited money?

I've always said if I ever win one of the big lottery jackpots I'd build a nice house on some property and I'd have to have a 10 car garage to house my car collection. There's no way I could have just one. I can't say exactly what that collection would include but there'd be a Porsche 911 (Carrera 4...

Re: Reveal 7 Live!

No doubt the brand new Regular Production Para 2 Cru-Carta is the biggest news Spyderco has pulled out in the last 5 years :D No offense, but Spyderco has released dozens of interesting new designs in the last 5 years. To me, something like releasing the Native Chief after decades of development ma...

Military - 9 votes vs. Para 3 - 0 votes. THIS is a GREAT forum! :) I won't argue with that! :D Maybe it’s because I’m new here but I don’t understand why the para 3 gets so much hate. Can someone explain? Is it because it’s had a lot of sprints in the past? It doesn't get as much hate as you might ...

Re: Which should be the next model in Cru-carta?

I voted for the Native 5 but then I remembered those are now made without liners. I guess I'd vote for a Para 3 but my REX45 P3 is wearing tan Terotuff scales. I have a Cruwear P3 too. So I wouldn't actually be interested in buying a Cru-carta P3

Wow, three new members on this page alone with 1 or 2 posts just asking about the Shaman. This one is going to be hard to get just like the Cruwear.
The new Cruwear/Micarta PM2 might change things a little

Re: Reveal 7 Live!

The Phoenix is cool. Not something I'd normally like but I may end up with one depending on the price. I like that it's a nostalgic piece and would like to have one in my "collection". K390 Wharnie Dragonfly and Delica might be must haves for me too. I was kind of holding off to see when/if the Whar...

Re: New Para 3 Problem...Help!

I'll add....I've only had to send in a couple knives (out of 100+) for warranty work. When they sent the one back they included cash in the box to help cover my cost for sending it in. Don't know for sure but my guess would be they do it this way because they don't know if something will be covered ...

Re: Fixing a stuck pivot

Just don't hit it so hard that you damage something.

Also, good fitting torx bits and a driver with plenty of leverage helps. If you whack it a few times and it's still won't budge hit it a few more times. It'll break loose
