Re: Micarta Shaman 2nd Sprint Run

What's silly is that you dont understand the economics of this. There may be huge demand for this particular item right now. But it will not last forever. The market for this specification is limited. Don't get me wrong I like this knife, but it shouldn't be a production piece. If anything, just ke...

Re: Micarta Shaman 2nd Sprint Run

I know lots of folks like the hassle and chase of sprints, but why not just make the Micarta and [high end steel] Shaman a regular production knife, like the S110V/Blurple ones. Demand is clearly through the roof, and it seems silly to keep a great material and great tool away from people who might ...

Re: Shaman Cru-Wear Sprint Run release ?

I'm very much hoping that they take this as a cue, and offer a production Shaman (much like the S110V Para2) in Micarta. Because this is definitely souring a LOT of people on the Sprint Game.

Re: The Future of the Para 2? I'm sort of worried

Discontinuing the PM2 would be just as silly as discontinuing the Slysz Bowi... wait. Oh no! :D

I would be *shocked* if they did anything to the PM2. It's an icon.

Re: H1 SE Tatanka LW Salt Anyone???

I'm curious: Now that LC200N is a thing in the Salt line, and has been shown to be basically rustproof, with substantially better edge-holding, why would you ask for H1 here? My current feeling is that I, for one, welcome our LC200N overlords, and I hope quite strongly that it comes to replace H1 th...

I realize this is a little silly, but a Waterway in M4 and Jade G10 would be awesome IMHO. Just saying :)
In M4, we'd have to call it the Desertway.

Re: The Drunken: Amazing Knife, Ruined by its Pocket Clip.

I just did a bit of bending myself, inspired by BWUnger, and it's definitely better. Having more room under the clip definitely helps, both in the pocket and in the hand.

Does Spyderco ever acknowledge when items are discontinued? Or do they just let them quietly die?
Spyderco announces a list of Discontinues at the end of each year.

Re: The Drunken: Amazing Knife, Ruined by its Pocket Clip.

Speculation and I’m no engineer but it might be that on a knife with washers there isnt much machining needed on the inside of the scale. All the machining is on the outside so it’s all done at once. This knife has extensive internal milling. I have trouble believing that could be the issue here.

Re: The Drunken: Amazing Knife, Ruined by its Pocket Clip.

I don't know that the clip tension makes it quite so dire on mine, but I agree, the clip is definitely the biggest downside here. I'm wondering if some creative re-bending might be able to make it a bit more usable, particularly giving it a bit more height in the back.

Re: Payson= PAY:SON

Having handled a prototype, I'm quite excited about this one. If the production build quality matches the prototype, this will meet (or exceed) the offerings from other companies at similar price points. "A knife should not cost more than X" is an argument you can make, although it's your personal o...

Re: Will the Paramilitary FRN replace the Delica?

The thicker blade is the main distinction. But I think between the Para3LW and the FRN Chapparal, we now have specialists to either side of the Delica, one for harder work, one for slicing. But I suspect for many, particularly who desire USA-made and enjoy sprints, the P3LW will be a really compelli...

Re: price increase?!

Will there be any specific targeted price increases or decreases (e.g. the Shaman getting more expensive in 2018 beyond the MAP and other price hikes affecting all models)? Or is this affecting all models equally and in the same direction? Also, will previously announced models (e.g. the Paysan, Dru...
