Re: To decide between these 4 Spydercos..

I know I know. It’s another one of “those” threads. For what it’s worth, I have laboured over this decision for weeks. It’s kept me up at night (for real). I’m trying to decide between these four knives which happen to all be Spyderco products. Observe: -Vallotton -Caribbean Sheepsfoot SE -Military...

Re: First Spyderco - S30v or SPY27?

Hi all. Been Lurking for quite awhile. Signed up and still lurking. Looking at my first "good" knife. Narrowed it down to a Benchmade Griptillian or Spyderco Native 5. Leaning towards the Spyderco and today I see the Native 5 in SPY27 is back in stock on their website. I'm still learning steels (th...

Re: Spyderco ATR 2, a new best friend?

ATR2 was only PE.
Very cool knife, I guess loyalty killed this one, S30V made in Japan in that price range didn't attract lots of interest.

Re: It’s time for a Police LW Salt!!

Not happy anymore with Siren and Waterway :D ?
You might have a better influence in here, can I ask you to also suggest a LC200N Military PE/SE Yellow G10?
At least a Sprint, I'm sure it will sell-out quick.

Re: Are Military's done?

It may come down to sales, maybe it doesn't sell as well as expected. I remember Rex45 sprint sold-out quick, but KW S90V and 204P took a long time and they got rid of them only after price drop. People have requested new versions/sprints, Military 2 has been talked about for years, a Maxamet versio...

Re: The upcoming Salt 2 ffg: Spydercos (Mini-) Bugout alternative and more? Perfect ultralight hiking knife?

I don't see why somebody couldn't bugout until now for example with a Delica in VG10 or S30V. Was the 10 grams difference (64 grams VG10 Delica vs 54 grams LC200N Salt2) a bugging out problem ? Unless will be bugging out with the Navy SEALS on a regular basis VG10 or S30V are decently stainless. Min...

Re: Shaman Z-Wear Sprint - General Discussion & Support thread - (not alerts)

How could this pass through QC ? As a sturdy and heavier knive the Shaman must be rock solid in my opinion. Anyway, now that it is fixed i am sure i will be quite happy with it. In an ideal world yes :D but being so busy with so many sprints, exclusives and regular production plus a gazillion new m...

Re: Shaman Z-Wear Sprint - General Discussion & Support thread - (not alerts)

Mine showed-up, first Shaman and still not particularly attracted by the model, still reeling from the inhuman prices in EU but hey nobody forced me to buy it, will be eating marmalade sandwiches for the next 6 months or so :D No major defects I've noticed so far, it's centered, OK action, no up and...

Re: Has K390 "obsoleted" M4/REX45/HAP40?

K390 will probably become obsolete as well at some point because of the pricing. A K390 Endura is over 200$ in EU so I don't see it selling the tens of thousands here. Maybe over there in the Wild West at 133$ will sell better, but at some point people will become bored with yesterdays K390 and the ...

Re: Z-Wear Shaman lookout thread

I see there's plenty available on ebay, starting from 340$-350$ I've paid 312EUR on mine - knife + shipping - that's 378$, so 340$-350$ is actually a pretty good price. As Sal once replied to me that he understands cheap , the problem with you guys is that you want them cheap :D And cheap is not the...

If you keep your index finger in the lock when you disengage and the blade falls shut (if you have the CQI free falling blade version) you will feel a slight kick, but it's not too bad.
