Apparently the yojimbo will have black liners. Sweet!
Good eye! The stealth Yojimbo is a winner for sure.

Re: CPM SPY27 steel

IMHO It could be similar to PSF27 but looks like it should have better wear resistance and corrosion resistance (i.e.stainless)...possibly higher hardness?

Re: Lil Chokwe

I like the look but will need to get it in-hand before I commit to the $182 price tag...especially with all the other jewels in the reveal. Not sure what they are going to have for the other reveals!? :eek:

Re: Caly 3 love?

Caly 3.5 just fits better ergonomically for me and is tough to beat for blade:handle ratio.

Re: Reveal 4, What's your favorite release?

Like the Astute but wish it was non-China. Rex 45, S45VN are cool. Wishing we knew more about SPY27, maybe Larrin will weigh in. K390 Ladybug + Watu, 100%.

Re: New Shaman release

I would love to see a DLC 52100/Gray G10 à la the Knifeworks Manix 2. That would be cool, but I wonder if they would take that risk since that Manix took A LONG TIME to sell out for an exclusive (I have one and love it) One of the best looking knives out there. Could be but with the performance tha...

I'd love to see a knife done in Damasteel's DC18N. Just throwing that out there. :)
+1 though it might be a hard sell given the available thicknesses of this high-cost, specialty Damasteel.

Can´t exactly recall what is the current status of this, just that:

- Taichung FRN texture (like on the Chap)
- Screw construction
- ?? Internal stop pin ??
- ? Could be released in the first half of 2020 ?
- ? Steel ?

Is there already more to know?

Burnt orange and hap40 for me. In either the 3 or 3.5
Based on the 3" with Hap40 I'd guess if we see something like this it would be a 3.5 with Green and Hap40 laminate.

Caly 3.5 in any flavor of smooth matte finished Micarta

Re: Lil Chokwe

Anyone else hoping this comes in RWL34/CPM154? From what I've seen from BBB, Larrin and others CPM154 performs really well and it hasn't been used much by Spyderco, so I would love to get some especially in this platform.

Re: Cruwear Native Chief ????

I like the cruwear/micarta idea, but how well does micarta work on a linerless knife? I'd imagine it depends on scale thickness but I think it's not quite as stiff as similar thickness of g10. I like the look and feel of micarta but not if it ends up with scale flex. I'm pretty sure the unlined mic...

Thursday was a Lil' Pattada prototype. Friday was a Shawn Houston prototype. Yesterday was a Kaila Cumming prototype. ;) :p

Any chance we can get more info from you on any of these? Materials on the Lil' Pattada? Is the BBB a folder? :D
Excited by them all regardless!

Re: VG10 and SG2 Experiments and History

Thanks for the excellent articles Larrin. I always appreciate the in depth, yet accessible nature of your writing. Really makes me want to try out SG2 but I'm going to have to hold out for a Wharncliffe version.
