Re: Any sprint runs or exclusive Yo2 in the works?

I'm surprised we still haven't seen a standard production Blurple/110v version.

Re: Spyderco 2019 Lists: Delivered & Upcoming

And i don't think BBS ever sold out quick on a sprint. Many don't seem to like them as a company. Even though the K390 price seems reasonable for Americans to me. Since they don't offer free shipping and returns there is no "out of jail free card" for any flipper for when a sprint isn't popular. Th...

Re: Centofante

I'd be absolutely ok with the Centofante 4 just like it is if it only had a screw pivot. I'll even be happy with VG10. Agreed. I think the design should be exactly the same as the original except with all the build improvements the newer FRN models have gotten, like the screw construction. Of cours...

Re: Shaman Cru-Wear Sprint Run release ?

I missed out on the M4 and 4V, so I'm glad I got an order placed with the mother ship for the Cru-carta Shaman this afternoon. I look forward to the Rex 45 Rosewood version as well. Hopefully, it's a sprint, not an exclusive. Yep, can confirm SFO has them on display. I was in there today looking fo...

Re: K390 pm2 Launch Shenanigans

I'm kinda' straddlin' the fence with this one. Worked 11.5 hours without a moment of downtime the day it was dropped. Was happy to see when I got home that it didn't sell out in 75 seconds and that it was still available. What a surprise!!! Here it is 24 hours later and it is still available and I'...

Re: Reveal Three Sprints Sell Out Timeframe

If the St Nicks sellout is any indication, the Cruwear Shaman is going to be $400 on eBay in no time.

The Stretch on the other hand will probably be a slow mover since it's VG10. (Plus I'm in the weird minority who likes the original blade shape.)

Re: Have you had a folding knife open on accident?

I haven't had any issues with locks/detents failing, but I've had the waved Endura get accidentally deployed multiple times when the clip caught on something and it was yanked from my pocket. That's definitely...awkward.

Re: A resurrected lower cost One-Eyed Jack, please

Yes! As would many I suspect. I didn’t know what a great knife it is until I got one. Keep the Barr design, and the bolsters. I love the ivory G10 too. I removed the clip from mine, added a simple fob and pocket carried it. The feel is so much better without the clip. I agree. I would be interested...

Re: S110V Para3 LW?

I think it is almost certain we will see a blue 110v variant of the Para3 LW eventually since it seems like every other popular Golden model gets the treatment. That is likely the one I will buy.

Re: Exclusive Re-runs: has this ever happened?

As mentioned, it has definitely been done before. I assume it depends on whether the dealer is willing to take a risk on not selling out a 2nd or 3rd run due to hype dying down by the time it can be produced. KnifeWorks for example has had a couple exclusives that they sat on for a very long time an...

Re: St. Nicks Knives Exclusive hint - Lil Native?

Wow. I'm impressed with their web site. I had no problem refreshing and watching the stock number dwindle in real time. I wish more dealers would be that upfront with the inventory status as it's nice to have it available. Where do you see the quantity in stock? It just says "out of stock" now, but...

Re: Bento Box M390 PM2 Re-Release on July 19th

I think it's so weird that there's this one outlier with such a different approach to reselling sprint runs. EDIT: But the existence and success of BBS's strategy suggests that the other retailers are doing something wrong. The others are selling them off fast, at prices that let the secondary mark...

Re: SpydieChef Stock

With the advent of all these YouTube and social media "influencers", I think Spyderco is more popular than they've ever been before and Spyderco wasn't prepared for their products flying off the shelves so fast. Yep, only an insider can see the actual numbers to prove it, but from my view, the infl...

Re: Return shipping fee - cumbersome to apply from abroad

It looks like the current Spyderco Online Store doesn't accept PayPal, and I assume maybe they have their reasons for that as many other vendors also do not. (Some don't like the fees, some don't like the policies, etc.) That said, I do always appreciate when vendors DO accept PayPal as a means of p...

Re: Poll: more CBBL

I like the lock. BIg fan of the Manix, but I'd also like to see an option that carries a little smaller/slimmer in pocket. Due to the nature of the lock, though, that might be tough to do.

Sold out. What's next? Shaman DLC? Then maybe a Manix XL? Lil Native Comp Lock? Native LW with translucent Jade FRCP?
My guess would be on the Shaman DLC based on the demand of the non-DLC.

Safe bet that if they keep selling like crazy, they'll keep making them.
