Re: The Advocate - An Official Statement from Spyderco

So after several weeks of EDC, this Advocate is my favorite knife (and I have had many, many). It opens easily and authoritatively, is still razor sharp after lots of light-medium duty cutting, and is simply beautiful. I might buy a second one....I don't know why, it is just that good. It could be t...

Re: The Advocate - An Official Statement from Spyderco

Thanks for taking the time to answer, SG. In the meantime I reread the last postings of the related threads, and figured this out. I have to say though that on the pic the bronze is reeeeeeally hard to spot, at least for me. :o Is it easier to see with your eyes? It is fairly obvious when actually ...

Re: The Advocate - An Official Statement from Spyderco

I just bought one from BHQ and requested the new revised version. it came in today and its the old design. The marking on the box for the date are LP so Dec. 2016. looks like this one is going back to BHQ. I Don't think they're at dealers yet. That's where I got an old and new version. They are out...

Re: The Advocate - An Official Statement from Spyderco

Hi sal, It's a great design and execution. I wasn't implying you should or could track that down, only that people shouldn't use the code to purchase by (which someone previously said), and that a warranty claim serial may not match the particular version of the knife. Thanks for continuously making...

Re: The Advocate - An Official Statement from Spyderco

So...I just received my second request for a new Advocate from the same retailer that provided the "LP" code previously (non-CQI). I purposefully requested the new one on the order form with the intent that the new and old return would pass each other in transit, and I would not get the same one. I ...

Re: The Advocate - An Official Statement from Spyderco

Yes disappointing. I spoke with them and they said they are short-staffed at warehouse in VA and couldn't fulfill the request on the order.

Re: The Advocate - An Official Statement from Spyderco

*removed pic link* It was really hard to get the rings with phone camera. I had to use a light, which distorts color a bit. The rings are definitely black... :confused: I specifically asked for the newest batch with CQI when I spoke with the retailer. I wonder if the knife got swapped out at the ret...

Re: The Advocate - An Official Statement from Spyderco

Got my new Advocate today. Interestingly, the bearing housings look black, not bronze/copper as I had expected and was shown in the newsletter. Has an LP production code, so I think that means it was 12/2017 production. I would say the action is smooth and crisp - far better than my positron. Just w...

Re: The Advocate - An Official Statement from Spyderco

Delivery of new batch confirmed at a few online dealers. Ordered mine after following closely for nearly a year. Getting excited...

Thanks Sal, long-time reader and customer, first time typer. The GBA brought me out from behind the curtain, as it seems like a nearly perfect EDC knife for me, and I'm looking forward to hearing more.

Cheers,

Re: Gayle Bradley Advocate First Impressions?

That GBA is a beautiful knife. Hoping to hear more on the bearing issue before pulling the trigger.
