I have 6 different knives in Cruwear. Good stuff!

How do you like the Wilderness Explorer? Been eyeing that for my next fixed blade purchase for some time now.

Re: Sun/Moon Chappy

I'm not typically a fan of smooth G10, but this appears to have a fine peel ply texture in the photos. I'm interested to see some macro close ups of the texture once these start getting out into users hands. That will ultimately make the decision for me.

Re: Reveal 4, What's your favorite release?

Yojimbo 2 black, because they’ve started blacking out the compression lock. Good catch dj! I love DLC, but I have always disliked the uncoated compression lock and liner lock. I was just thinking how much better that DLC Cruwear Shaman would look with DLC liners. I really hope coated everything is ...

Re: Quick question: Upcoming K390 Endura family: Sprint runs or regular production?

I can't recall if it was ever said whether or not the entire K390 Endura Family will be sprint or regular production but, the K390 Ladybug in Reveal 4 is listed as a new regular production model. If that's any indication for the rest of the K390 Endura family, I would guess they'll be regular produ...

There will be more released on the actual drop date that is TBD as of right now. There is still a chance to get one.

Great to hear! Hope it is true.

Re: TKJ Spyderco exclusive cruwear ????

Missed out. What a way to wake up. Glad to see they did 2 per household on such a low quantity knife so everyone can get their extra to flip!! :mad: Guess the Knife Joker moniker fits! Pretty bummed to miss out on this for how long I've been asking for a DLC Cruwear knife. :(

Re: Reveal 4, What's your favorite release?

So it reads to me like the K390 Ladybug is NOT a sprint and the blue K390 Seki models will reside alongside the other production models in the way the BRG ZDP-189 models have done for years. Perhaps ZDP will be phased out in favor of K390? Hoping to see the Delica, Endela, Dragonfly, and Jester get ...

Re: Reveal 4, What's your favorite release?

Looking forward to:

Rex45 Native LW and Manix LW
New Pacific Salts
Hearing more about SPY27


Things I would have liked to have seen:

Translucent Orange FRCP on the Rex45 Manix LW
a Manix XL in the Rex45 series
the next Micarta Shaman

Re: TKJ Spyderco exclusive cruwear ????

Yeah, the grip on the factory Micarta Shaman was actually very slippery. I dropped it too many times! I started putting drumstick wax on it and it is more to my liking now. I will probably try this G10 version assuming I can get in on the drop! I haven't found that to be true at all. Yeah it's not ...

Re: TKJ Spyderco exclusive cruwear ????

$315 I can see why the store is called The Knife Joker. He's a small dealer. I'm pretty sure he's running his business out of his home. I think it's great that he's commissioned this exclusive and I hope it helps him get his name out there. The actual price of $217.75 is not out of line IMO While t...

I think it's worth a shot. I don't like the smooth g10 on the black cruwear native at all, but I have no complaints with that g10 shaman.

Yeah, it does look different in the photos than the other smooth G10 knives. Will give it a go! Thanks!

Re: TKJ Spyderco exclusive cruwear ????

A note on the "smooth" g10 scales on this one: I'm assuming these will be the same as the smoother g10 scales on the St.Nicks shaman. Yes, they are smoother than your average g10 (see pic with red g10 pm2) but I still think they're plenty grippy. They don't have much texturing, but they still have ...

Re: TKJ Spyderco exclusive cruwear ????

Hmm, G10? Thought it was Micarta. That changes things. I passed on the St Nicks Shaman because I didn't want the smooth G10. Decisions...

I hope that Spyderco has a DLC option on the rumored upcoming OD Green Cru-carta Shaman. That is what I am really after.

Re: TKJ Spyderco exclusive cruwear ????

Excellent! I'm in! Wondering what the drop will be like?? Specific day/time? 1 per household? Quantity in the run?

Awesome to finally see some DLC Cruwear
