Re: MAP policy change? 35%

Not calling MAP pricing “price fixing” is like not calling multi-level marketing a “pyramid scheme”.

Re: The Advocate - An Official Statement from Spyderco

It would be nice if the newly designed Advocate can be easily identified by the buyer. I don't want another one of the initial design.

Re: Spyderco Parata

This is the only knife in the catalog that really catches my eye. I really like the looks of it. Hope that it has bronze washers and not nylon

Re: CS Orange Manix

On Ebay, just because they are sold does not mean that they are paid for. There are MANY non-paying bidders these days on Ebay. There are also MANY unscrupulous sellers. Ebay does nothing to police their site.

Re: Para 3 Cruwear in stock..

Just say no to profiteering. Suppose that other knife retailers get the same idea. Then, on every sprint they increase the price $25-35 or even $50 more than the MAP price? Well, National did it and they still sold out, so why don't we all do it? The MAP price is already more than the competitive p...

Isn't it odd for National to sell it for $26 over the MAP price?
Odd, and I will remember it in the future. Like Cheaper Than Dirt, if you profiteer, then I will no longer do business with you.

Re: Caly 3 HAP40 dropped

I gave up trying to find one at the MAP price. I just bought a Delica Peckerwood instead and I really like it. Still have the HAP40 blade and laminated wood instead of G10.

Re: The Euro Edge.

I really like mine. It is a beautiful and robust knife.

The one thing that I don't like is that it is not really very lefty friendly. I have figured out a way to get around that issue, though.

Re: New Model Dropped: Chaparral Raffir Noble

They do not, it is a little slippery but I don't think it'll be to much of a problem. One thing I've noticed is the acrylic seems to take surface scratches easy kind of like the back of my iPhone when I don't have a case on it. Isn't a deal breaker for me they are only noticeable if your looking fo...

Re: New Model Dropped: Chaparral Raffir Noble

I want one of these, but I am concerned that the handle appears to be slippery. I am wondering if the ribbons reach the surface to improve the grip??

Re: Sal, hope to hear from you

Well, my Advocate has been at Spyderco for 3 weeks and I still have not heard anything. I am wondering how long it will be before I see my knife again? I still think that the way to fix it is to mill a pocket in the scales and insert a stainless bearing race instead of using these thin washers. Now,...

Re: Sal, hope to hear from you

It finally came back from the dead! It is supposed to be delivered today. It disappeared for 6 days, taking that long to ship from Arizona to Colorado. A mule would have been faster!

Re: Sal, hope to hear from you

Well, I sent my Advocate to Sal last Saturday and it now appears that the USPS has either lost it or stolen it. Its' whereabouts are unknown--not showing any tracking since it left my town on Saturday. It was supposed to be delivered yesterday. Out $220 and no knife! Thanks United States Postal Ser...

Re: Sal, hope to hear from you

Normally, I don't get too excited, but this time there is no record of it moving after it left the post office in my town. Nothing-no scans since Saturday. Spyderco is only one state away.

Hope for the best-expect the worst.
