Re: ORANGE Dragonfly? What do the ladies think?

Just to follow up on what Doc Dan mentioned....Orange isn't a preferred color for me but there are a couple of places that you can still pick up a purple Dfly. They are around MSRP though. I would buy a pink Dfly if Spyderco made another run of them. I prefer large knives but it's not always appropr...

Re: ORANGE Dragonfly? What do the ladies think?

I don't know if it counts but my sister carries an Orange frame handgun. She would probably like one to match her .380.

Re: BBS DLC Paramilitary 2 Exclusive?

I would be willing to pay full MSRP if this combo was released in a Military. I would feel like I was being over charged but ultimately I have other solid functional knives and this is a luxury item that's an individual monetary choice. It's why we have at least a semblance of a free market.

Re: BBS DLC Paramilitary 2 Exclusive?

I likely won't order one but it's a really nice looking knife. Kudos to BBS for keeping these runs going. I don't particularly agree with their business model but at least they are helping keep some variety out there.

Re: Factory edge poll

No problems here. The recent Urban aside, I believe the best edges come out of Maniago though.

I got one when I ordered a replacement clip for my Police 4. It's the only sticker I have.
Me too. I have only received one if I ordered something directly from SFO.

Re: Collectors Club Question?

My Elmax Urban, a British Blades exclusive, came from Country Knives with a CC# 113V. I’d rather not have CC#s. I suppose I’m just the kind of buyer CK banks on: desperate afi who must have a knife now rare and will tolerate MSRP and adornments for the privilege. And, indeed, I’m glad to have this ...

Collectors Club Question?

I recently bought a couple of knives from Country Knives. I have spoken with them and they are great people. My question is do retailers have their own CC membership? Both were European issue only and showed up with CC numbers. Just kind of wondering. Thanks folks.

DLT has after market clips to replace the wire clips. I have not actually used one so I am not sure how well they work.
Sixty-four, ninety-nine + S&H ... oof.
Yeah. It's why I haven't used one.....

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

Very nice knife. Time will tell if it's going to be a keeper or not. Right now I'm enjoying it - it is my first Lil Native, first CPM 4V, first DLC, first compression lock. I am impressed with the solid construction. It's a heavy little knife if you're used to FRN but I kinda like the extra weight ...

Re: Carrying Jumpmaster 2 for Self Defense?

I wonder how you swim, cut, swing, with that kind of weight on you unless you are very carefully balanced and trained. If you are looking to just jack with someone...there are more options available than a Jumpmaster. Every time a knife SD thread pops up I wonder if people have really looked at a Ci...

I carry small knives when appropriate. Lil Native just killed the Dfly for me.

They can mint money with their exclusives. My bet is that you will see a PM2 next. If we are lucky, a Shaman.

Re: Small Knife Blues

We have been hearing the call for more big knives for a few years and I think spyderco has actually answered the call. Of the last few years we have seen the brouwer, lil native, and Mcbee. But we have also seen... Drunken 3.5”, s90v Paysan 3.88” s90v Chief 4.08” s30v Shaman 3.58” s30v Tropen 4” s3...
