Re: What's next for the Sage?

Also, the Sage 4 is the lockback version. Oops, I meant slipjoint. So when Spyderco comes out with a G10 model, they just mill out the scales from raw material, right? So the cost of production is on a per-unit basis. Whereas FRN models require a large upfront expense (molds) and then make it up in...

Re: The next Endela?

I wonder if Cutlery Shoppe will do their orange/black zome exclusive with the Endela. I think there are lots of choices. ZDP seems like a natural extension of the lineup.

Re: What's next for the Sage?

There is also the LW version. I don't see why you couldn't have LW Sage with the CBBL. Could you do the Stop Lock on a LW Sage? I'm interested to see some disassembly videos of the Stop Lock. As for a lock back version, isn't the UKPK pretty much a lock back Sage? I know there are some slight differ...

Re: Sage 5 LW - Coming Soon? Specs?

How would they make a LW frame lock? That's kinda my point. If they could only do the LW versions of the Sage 1, 3, 4, and 5 it doesn't really make sense (at least to me) to release an "incomplete" set of LW Sages. Since the compression lock is the iconic Spyderco lock, I am guess that the LW versi...

Re: Sage 5 LW - Coming Soon? Specs?

Since the Sage line has always been about the lock, does anybody think the LW series will go through the four other locks? I'm inclined to say "no" especially since a FRN frame lock would be interesting to say the least. But I could see how some people wouldn't mind the other three locks.

Google "spyderco forum (insert topic here) ". Easier than using the forum search. It's what I do
Good ol' Google. Your suggestion makes mine look clunky and superfluous.

Re: Curious...

I'd also suggest that reviewing Spyderco knives is one way to "discuss Spyderco products" and thus part of the stated purpose of General here. I tend to agree. But it would be nice to quickly find a review that you want. The software that runs this form seems pretty simple (nothing wrong with that,...

Re: Seki City sprints

A HAP 40 Endela would be great, but I have almost zero hopes for that to happen soon. Well, there are two things going in your favor. One, the Delica Wharncliffe came out last year in HAP 40. That sprint was already "over", but somehow it got made (even had the burnt orange scales). Two, Knife Cent...

Re: Today I had a HUGE surprise with my Lil'Native... you were so right Doc !

Could somebody compare the Lil'Native and the Dfly with regards to comfort in hand? I know that is a pretty subjective request. I too am looking for the perfect urban carry (2.5" or less). Right now I have the Urban and am happy with it. I always figured my next small knife would be the Wharnie DFly...

Re: Small Knife Blues

It'll be interesting to see how the Endela and P4LW are treated with regards to the Seki sprints. If they are included, then you should see a regular cadence of larger knives (3.41", 3.75", and 4.39") that get unique steels. FRN lock backs aren't for everybody, and I would be a bit surprised to see ...

Re: So when does this forum start speculating about the upcoming discontinued models???

So does Spyderco typically announce discontinued models from the year all at once? If so, when and how? All at once. There will be an official post here when it happens. Once that goes live, the discounts happen at retailers. If you see something you like, i wouldn't hesitate. Plenty of people here...

Re: Native Chief - Can we get a heartbeat?

Don´t get me wrong, I like watching Nicks reviews, and he normally points out really interesting and important things! But, like most knife "reviewers", he does in fact mostly "just" kind of first impression videos (and good ones!!), and not real reviews. That is on no way against Mr. Shabbaz, as s...

Given Bradley's affinity for M4 (and PSF27) I doubt you would see a version with 20CV. Maybe if it were an exclusive?

Re: The next Endela?

While I personally prefer FRN, your G10 suggestion for me would truly be the "better PM2" (almost same dimensions) Do you get a royalty for every Endela sold? :D I originally thought the Endela would be an interesting knife as the Endura doesn't fit my hand quite right. But my priority is on other ...

Re: Endura 4 Scales

I've heard nothing but good things from Death of All Things . I'm not sure if he does scales for an Endura though. Kourtney McCrary has some interesting scales for her Delica. I don't know where she got them, but hopefully they make Endura scales. I would be careful about sending your knife off for ...
