Siren looks cool; in it's simplicity of shape it kinda reminds me of the Goddard (if not exactly).
It's very close. I thought it was a Wayne Goddard salt at first.

Re: Is this a fake?

If you think that hunk of crap is "very well made" you ought to try a legitimate spyderco knife. That way you aren't supporting thieves and you can see for yourself what "very well made" actually means. Serious question... aside from the morals and ethics of making a counterfeit, why would you say ...

Re: A question or two about the Li'l Temperance 3

It has phosphor-bronze washers. The detent is also perfect and not weak at all. Like the other reply said, you will not get it to drop free like a PM2. The only thing I dislike is the clip is very tight, which appears to be because it sits down into the divot in the G10. I need to use 2 hands to cli...

he thought the Alcyone would sell a lot better than it is now that they changed it to BD1N and I'm pretty sure that's made in China right?
The Alcyone and Polestar are still in BD1 everywhere I look, not BD1N. Did they really change it to BD1N now?

Re: Where is my Bow River ?

The smaller handle is probably the main reason for why they didn't sharpen heel of the blade. I think some people will be "choking up" against the edge.

Re: a little (REC) help for down under

Possibly a dumb question, but what's a REC Para3 ? An exclusive from River's Edge Cutlery. It has CTS 204p, a tan coating on the blade and OD green G10. Looks awesome. But you're going to need deep pockets to get one because everyone is charging a ton for it on the 2nd hand market. This is why ther...

Is this going to be soon? I see the REC Para 3 is selling for $400+ on ebay. :eek: Flippers are sure to be swarming this one.

Re: 2020 Spyderco Forum Calendar Contest!

I initially joined this forum about a year and a half ago when I first saw a picture of the soon-to-come Bow River so I could track when it would be released. The team nailed this one and I think it's hands down the best value in the Spyderco lineup. I'll have it on me when I fish these creeks and r...

For the digi camo, I’m thinking we can get an orange g10 backspacer. That might be cool.
There are a lot of aftermarket G10 backspacers for some models, like the PM2. They're usually around $20.

Can someone lucky, who allready got one tell me where it has the balance point? Thanks.
Balance is directly on the 2nd pin from the blade.

Mine came today too. It's great!

Same here. Did they send you a few tootsie pops, too? :D Seriously, giving something extra plus free shipping which still arrived quick on a $32.50 order has definitely earned my return business.

Re: Where is my Bow River ?

I thought everyone already knew this. All promo pics for the last 1 1/2 years or so have shown the edge comes up a little short. Must be so nobody cuts their finger.

Knock-offs don't use real G10 (or they didn't use to, unsure about nowadays).
Counterfeits are definitely using real G10 these days. It's part of the reason it's such a shame to see them take the counterfeit path. They could have some decent folders if they used original designs.

Re: Where is my Bow River ?

Cutlery Shoppe had a free shipping option for the Bow River. I went for it. I'm in no hurry. I've waited this long. I don't care if they send via bicycle courier yup. I couldn't believe they gave us free shipping. Do they normally have free shipping for everything? EDIT: oh never mind, I just looke...

I checked there earlier today before I ordered from KJ. Darn it! I missed out on a free pen and Tootsie Pop! :(
yea I don't see an "Add to cart" option on Cutlery Shoppe anymore. I guess it sold out quick.

Re: Is this a fake please help

I think if people are overly cautious and worried about fakes, they'd save so much anxiety by just buying from an authorized Spyderco dealer. Hard to tell if yours is a fake from the pics.

Re: Spyderco 2019 Lists: Delivered & Upcoming

It shows as in stock at (at least) two internet sites. I think they will soon be available widely :D edit - it shows the Smock as in stock as well, so perhaps their inventory management is not so strong... I would not trust any place that shows the Bow River as in stock now. All of the large sites ...
