Re: Lil Chokwe

Hoping we see it at shot show and can see if it has a pivot bushing. Hope so too. With the CQI changes to the Kapara, and going right out of the gate with the Sage 5 LW, etc, I’d be really surprised if they didn’t go bushing pivot here as well. Seems to be the way the wind is blowing. Fingers cross...

Watu for sure
Rocks Glass for sure
Something in REX45 likely (P3 LW, Lil Native?)
Interested in learning more about S45VN and SPY27 performance
K390 Ladybug?... intriguing, I can see talking myself into it

Re: Lil Chokwe

Agree with others, the CF laminate isn’t particularly exciting, but certainly not a deal breaker. With the 20CV, I’m definitely in for one of these!

Re: Slysz Swayback

Absolute day 1 purchase for me. This has been at the top of my Spydie wish list for years now. I’d expect XHP, fitting with the rest of the (non-Chef) Slysz collabs, but I’d take it with really any steel. (I mean, please don’t drop 8cr in there, but still. :D :D )

Re: Are you done with 2019, Spydie wise? What do you wish for in 2020?

2019 has been a good year Spydie-wise. Para3 Maxamet, Mantra 2, Caribbean, Shaman, McBee among others. I think that will be it for me for the year. Next year, I’m a definite day 1 purchaser of the Swayback, and will likely pick up a Sage 5 LW at some point. Beyond that, not much else I’m intentional...

Re: New to the knife scene

Hey guys, Over the last few months I’ve really started to get into this knife business. I’ve only bought one so far as I tend to only buy what really peaks my interest and I’m not trying to get a collection started. Out of curiosity, what was the knife you started with? Stick around on the forums l...

Re: Caribbean Scales: Love, or Hate?

Admittedly I didn’t love the look when first revealed, despite being a fan of black and yellow color schemes. But once I got one in hand I immediately grokked the smooth yet tactile grip and the layered G10 construction and milling. I’m a fan now, yeah.

Ever feel like you can't come out on top no matter what you do?

I dunno Sal, I think from a Utilitarianism point of view, you’ve come out way on top. John Stuart Mill would nod his head in approval. ;)

Re: Shaman Cru-Wear Sprint Run release ?

I am pleased to announce that there was a special meeting for management on this thread and they decided to make another run of brown canvas Micarta Shamans. We'll use a different, but complimentary steel and make twice as many as the first sprint. sal Excellent news! I’m loving my Crucarta Shaman ...

That’s great news. Fingers crossed mine comes through and there’s some action soon.

Definitely down for Green CRUCARTA, but also down for Denim CRUCARTA....maybe BLUCARTA?

I voted denim/K390, but I love the BLUCARTA name and would have no trouble supporting that
