Re: Small Police 4 lightweight

I'm not kidding at all, and I cannot stress this enough. Get a byrd Harrier 2 Lightweight! It feels so much like a smaller Police 4 Lightweight. Everything about it gives me that feel, and it also feels like a major upgrade from the FRN Cara Cara and Meadowlark. The FRN feels like an upgrade and the...

How about some Byrd Wharncliffes? Robin would be a good place to start.
I'd be all over this!

I'd love to see the Meadowlark and Cara Cara CQI'd to make the handles a little more like the Harrier 2 lightweight's. I know FRN molds are expensive, but I think it'd be worth it.

Why the byrd Harrier 2 Ltwt is a game changer

Last week, I received a byrd Harrier 2 lightweight in the mail. When I took the knife in hand, I was floored by the quality of it. I have other FRN byrds. I currently own a Cara Cara 2 and Meadowlark 2, and I've previously owned the first generation Robin, Meadowlark, and Cara Cara. The Harrier 2 le...

Reminds me of a Kershaw Leek with a bigger belly.
I once heard a YouTube reviewer (I can't remember which one) refer to the ESEE Zancudo folder as an improved Kershaw Leek. If I were a reviewer, the Astute would probably be my opportunity to make the same comment.

This is going to be a tough few months for me. If I pre-order all of the new ones I want out of this reveal, I'll go broke.

Re: Endela-i want one

I'll definitely be getting an Endela. It's the perfect size for me for a carry knife. The Endura has always been a bit too big for me and more so since they upped the size a small amount with the E4. Has anyone else noticed the weight on the Endela? According to Wouter's Amsterdam coverage it will t...

Re: Casual Sage 5 Lightweight reveal

As excited as I am for the Para 3 lightweight, I'm even more so for a Sage 5 lightweight. I hope this thing makes it to production! For Eric to have it in pocket, it means they have to have spent the money on the molds for the FRN handles. That pretty much guarantees that we'll see it at some point.

Re: More on new Spyderco Light Weights: Let's discuss!

Now I can see from Spydercos point of view (insofar as I can delude myself into thinking that I do). What I see is that each G10 knife involves what looks like a fair bit of CNC machining -- whereas when you absorb the cost of having a mold for FRN made, then you can just squirt stuff into the mold...

Re: Did then Endura always have this?

I was not a fan of the hump shaped of the Endura (and Delica) 4 tip. When they first came out, I did not like it and wished for a return to the "splinter picker" tips of the previous models. However, I changed my tune on the humped tip when the FFG models came out. I still don't like the hump on the...

Re: Casual Sage 5 Lightweight reveal

Man, I'm loving all the FRN models we're seeing/anticipating lately. Me too. So am I. Spyderco has gone through a knife renaissance. Also, did you look at the screen shot of the knife that shows the blade thickness. Isn't that a nice and beefy blade for cutting chores? Most definitely. I pre-ordere...

Pacific Salt SE would be my choice in that environment. Salt 2 SE if you're worried the size of the Pacific would raise eyebrows.

Re: Para 3 lightweight anticipation

I'm excited for this one too but no plans to trade in my G10 versions at this point. I, on the other hand, will probably put my G-10 version up for sale the day the LW arrives. The G-10 model just won't see any carry once the LW gets here. The Paramilitary 2 is a different story. If they release a ...

Re: Favorite Saturday folder?

Manix 2 LW. Great shape, strong, lightweight. Everything I want in a no-nonsense yardwork folder. Also, the BD1 steel on it handles everything well but also comes back to razor sharp quickly after the work is done. Hoping to have my pre-ordered Para3 Lightweight by the time spring starts so that I c...
