Re: Ikuchi - fantastic knife!

I ordered through KC too, was on the short list, it was delivered in 4 days. I agree totally with you, it’s a great knife. It’s something really quite different from Spyderco. I flipped it so much when it came my index finger got a bit ripped up from the flipper wheel. Beyond that, it’s a superb de...

I would kill for a super steel DF2. DLC M4 please, or even a black handled Salt Lc200n DLC.
ZDP-189 isn't super enough for you?

Re: Who else is getting an Ikuchi as soon as they are released?

Received a pair of Ikuchis today. I realized within a few flips that my index finger was cut open and bleeding. The culprit appears to be the sharp point on the back side of the flipper wheel. Both of the ones I received are like this so I assume most are this way. Maybe it's my soft office hands b...

This thing is still in stock at DLT if anyone is looking. Definitely a solid $130 purchase.

Just received notice in stock at DLTtrading.
Looks like they have just over 50 available. Hopefully there will continue to be more inventory coming available at other retailers to reduce the secondary market pricing.

Looks like about the right size to me. Even folded it's as long as your leg.

Won't know what you have until it's in your hand. Good price if it's real and fortunately with Prime, returns are easy.

Re: Lil native

I sold mine because I'm waiting for an exclusive, but it was a well built knife and seemed plenty tough. My one complaint was the lack of jimping. On a small knife where I can't get my whole hand on it the jimping helps those forward fingers stay put. I wpuld love to see them CQI this and add spine...

Re: The Drunken: Amazing Knife, Ruined by its Pocket Clip.

If you cannot figure a way to maneuver that clip away from that scale, perhaps you shouldn't own such a complex knife as this? You could really hurt yourself . . . Of course we can try bending the clip. I tried that after posting and thankfully the clip is thin so I was able to bend it with just my...

Re: Caribbean different scales

I have no problem with the scales since the Caribbean is all about function in the environment it's intended for. It's just too big for me. I prefer fixed blades at that length.

A Lil Caribbean would be a no-brainer autobuy for me.

Re: Birthday coming up - thinking of a small EDC Spydie...

Despite the pressure of new knifes coming in to the collection, the Lil Native comp lock has yet to be kicked out of my EDC rotation. The Chaparral and Dragonfly are nice but I've long since moved on from back locks for EDC. The only back locks I still have are safe queens. Same with the Para 3. If ...

Re: Crazy deals @ Sierra and other places

the eBay coupons are non existent these days. There was a 15% off earlier this month. There will probably be another before the month is out because it's also quarter-end. I still see a 10% off discount for this month- MARCH10. I used the 15% off coupon to get a Mantra 2 :) It might help to mention...
