Spyderco Retro?

Does anyone else regret not picking up old school Spyderco's when they were available? I deeply regret not picking up Chinook's 1-3 while they were available. I'm Canadian, and (not getting too political) those knives are basically impossible to get now, unless some other Canuck is willing to sell. ...

Re: Shaman Cru-Wear Sprint Run release ?

Well, the Canadian dealer had 30, and they were gone in a blink of an eye. I failed. I'm really bad at this game. Another sprint lost.

I wouldn't mind having a Cru-Wear Military. Just throwing that out there. I wouldn't mind a Military in CPM 10V either.

Re: Suggestion on how to greatly improve the Manix 2

I like the jimping. I could probably live without it though. Would it lower the price point any if it were left out?

Re: Spyderco Heavy Weights!

A slab-sided (non-fluted) titanium Military is pretty heavy.

Re: Tip down Chinook

I wish the Chinook 4 had tip down. It's my only complaint. I still bought two of them.

I'd love to see one with a Military-style curved clip in tip down. That's my favorite clip.

If there is a Chinook 5 in ten years, I vote for tip down, and made in Golden....

Re: Cruwear Micarta Native follow up to the Shaman??

Looks great. I hope Spyderco makes tons of them, and the Canadian dealers can get their hands on them, enough so us enthusiasts don't have to cut each others throats grabbing them up. Customs won't let me bring one into the country on my own.

Re: Spyderco Amsterdam Meet 2019 Report

Native Chief is looking good. Finally! If you want sprints, we'll have to support the initial CPM S30V black G10 model. Remember the Manix 2 backlock. That being said, if we're taking orders, I'd like one with the old style "swedge-grind" look, with the old square jimping, to match my old school Nat...

Re: Any Spyderco Military sprint runs or exclusives coming out besides REX45?

Just gonna say, if anyone of importance happens to be listening, I would take two of the CPM 20CV coyote tan/brown versions if offered in the Military platform. I missed your PM2 version (which sold like lightning; anyone not online within the hour did not get one). Let me know. I'm good to go.

Re: What Spyderco is in your pocket today??

Contoured handles! These two knives compliment each other very well. https://i.imgur.com/WPrB7rI.jpg How do you like the Shaman? I've had mine for more than half a year and I still can't decide if I prefer the contoured scales. I think that all the years of handling flat Spydercos has me biassed, e...

Hi! I'm Canadian. Is it OK to send my Spyderco in for service now?

Hi. I was wondering. I bought a TI military (regular), non=-fluted) from KC when they were disco'd (not sure now if they are or not, they sell them regular now) and it does not have a good lockup. The blade and lock both can move when in the lock position. I was wondering; Is it OK now to send the t...

Is the border services donkey embargo over then? I see that Warriors and Wonders has the "Burl Ives" version of the Manix 2 available.

Re: So, let's chat about the Chinook

I bought one when they first came out, last September (2017). I liked it enough to buy a backup in January (2018), as the Iron Curtain against knife importation fell here in Canada. I thought the first one I bought was a nice knife, but the second one I have is even better. They are nice knives. The...

Re: Native Chief - Can we get a heartbeat?

I'm still looking forward to this. I think a blurple version would make one heck of a folding knife. I'm still not sure how I am going to get one though. The Spyderco supply seems to be drying up here in Canada, and the prices for those left on this side of the border are sobering. Looks as though a...

On foot?
I don't think I'll do it on foot. Where I'll have to conceal the thing I think even the shortest of walking trips will be unbearably painful.

Any former drug mules here? I need some advice.

Re: Canadian UKPK

If we do this, I want it to be huge. Like 4 ~ 4.5 inches of blade length. Not really for utility, but just because I want big honking knives streaming across the border.

Re: Native Chief - Can we get a heartbeat?

I'm still hoping we see the Chief soon, even though there are a lot of Native's (Native 5, Shaman, Lil' Natives) on the market now. Four inch blade, with a Golden back lock, would be awesome. I keep looking for it when the catalog and supplement come out, as well as the Amsterdam meet pics. One day.
