Re: What Spyderco did you get for Christmas?

I was getting a Canis and Watu, but sadly they're stuck in a USPS warehouse somewhere instead of under my tree! Guess they'll be New Years prizes instead. :(

Lol...for real. I have a package that was shipped from a neighboring city 70 miles away and has been "in transit" for 12 days now. I could have walked there to pick it up.

Re: 2020 Seconds Sale - BREAKING NEWS

Wow, that's crazy! Based on what I've seen at previous in-person events, my best guess is that they probably culled the inventory down to the items with the smallest defects to minimize complaints from first-time buyers getting stuff sight-unseen. At the physical sales, it doesn't seem like they've ...

Oh, that says "Out of Stock"? I thought it said, "Your wife said Stop Buying Knives."
Lol...Yes, my wife is a huge fan of this e-commerce platform. :D

Re: 2020 Seconds Sale - BREAKING NEWS

My guess is they're trying to catch up on all the physical packing of orders before taking more. If they really have had thousands as mentioned on twitter, that must be crushing their normal shipping crew.

Re: 2020 Seconds Sale - BREAKING NEWS

They had WolfSpyders at the last in-person sale too, so I'm not sure what the criteria is. I have always thought all models were fair game as seconds since they can't be sold through any channel as first-quality.

Re: 2020 Seconds Sale - BREAKING NEWS

People are being a lot more polite on this forum, on other social media platforms the response feels very negative. I hope this sale isn't going to result in issues when knives start arriving and they don't meet buyer's expectations. Agreed. Some people sound so toxic on the social media pages that...

Re: 2020 Seconds Sale - BREAKING NEWS

I have issues getting the site to load on my phone. For whatever reason, it loads fine on my desktop PC (Macbook running Google Chrome). The other thing about my desktop setup is that I logged in before the sale started and bookmarked the page, so not sure if that makes any difference somehow. On my...

Re: 2020 Seconds Sale - BREAKING NEWS

Yes, some way to "pay as you go" for your cart and then say "ok, I'm done" at the end and combine shipping would be nice. While I hope there isn't need to do this again next year because of a pandemic, I wouldn't mind seeing this become a regular alternative sale in the future (with some tweaks lear...

Re: 2020 Seconds Sale - BREAKING NEWS

I'm guessing it means they had a lot of them. Maybe the Maxamet models are harder to make and prone to lots of small defects.

Re: 2020 Seconds Sale - BREAKING NEWS

Weird, does anybody else see the Rex45 Lil Native as "in stock" on the main screen, but when you click on it to add to cart, it says "out of stock"?

I hope they have some ZDP DF hiding somewhere since all the regular dealers were sold out when it was disco'd.

Re: 2020 Seconds Sale - BREAKING NEWS

Stock is obviously limited but that updated drop was only live for about 20 minutes before selling out... I'm definitely not a fan of having to vigilantly sit around for the next two days waiting for the next batch of seconds to drop at any random given time. Yes, I agree that it seems that random ...

Anybody have Twitter? Any updates when the next batch, or what it may contain, will be released? There's hardly anything left right now. You don't need an account or app for Twitter, just go to this page: https://twitter.com/SpydercoKnives You just need an account if you're going to post, but not t...

Good idea, steelcity. Hopefully that is part of the plan.

Re: 2020 Seconds Sale - BREAKING NEWS

Not surprised at all to hear the usual scalpers are trying to cheat with bots. Such a bummer with literally every drop in the EDC community anymore. I wonder if it would be possible to make a really annoying checkout experience full of captchas to foil the bots and make it not worth trying to use th...
