Hi all, There was a request and a thread on our making a Jester Sprint run. There were requests for a handle other than FRN. My thoughts were to make the scales from G-10. Thoughts were for gray as a possible color as ther isn't much gray around. My question is; if we make gray G-10 scales for a Je...

I just picked up one NIB and the lock is nice and solid. I think it's the sharpest Spyderco that I've ever recieved from the factory. It even surprised me. And I love my full flat grind Spydercos. Kudos to all invloved, designer, company and factory. And example of international excellence.

The Lil' Temp is still one of my top three EDC folders. I got one as soon as it was released and have carried it since. I love it. I'd go for a sprint run or a redesign. I'm sure I'd pick a couple up like I did the original Lil' Temp. An all around awesome design.

Definitely. Thankfully it's not a worry where I live but I always carry a legal blade length when traveling out of state.

My choices would be...

Folder : Chinook 3 (3" or under: Lil' Temperence)
Fixed : Warrior

But .. there of plenty of other awesome blades in their inventory (past & present) that are GREAT self defense pieces.

On the other, Eric, who worked quite a bit with Ed on the current Persian design, felt that the true functional "spirit" of this excellent design would best be served with a G-10 version, peel ply, full flat grind and skeletonized liners. Light and thin. sal Yes! That sounds like an extremely capab...

I would hope it would at least have a 12" to 16" handle. A slight curve toward the blade in the end of the handle for "snap". You know, the usual Spyderco ergonomic treatment. Lightweight, quick in hand with good balance, tool steel blade, hammer on back and a sheath system with multiple carry optio...

Santa didn't get me anything ... but my faithful dog that I rescued from the pound picked me up a Spyderco Superhawk & a FFG G-10 Endura. Thankfully my wife was nice enough to wrap them for him. :D

No liner locks please. The rest of the details won't matter much to me (blade steel, color, etc.). I still carry one ...

I Think Spyderco Should make one of these Tactical Pens...an aircraft aluminum body Pen with countersunk holes running down the body and little divots (like on the lil Temp or Yojimbo) near the top to assist in rapid grip change positions, (there are six different positions to hold a Kubotan)..that...

I just picked one up this week. Awesome design + Awesome manufacturing = one fine blade. Well worth the money. I'll be EDC'ing it over summer for sure. It carries light and flat in the pocket. It's very secure and fast in the hand. Oh, and sharp. EXTREMELY sharp. The blade alone is unreal. Add that ...

I'd settle for any handle material too. I'd rather have a G-10 handle but I would be happy with the same handle anodized a different color to keep engineering/tooling costs down. Any color is cool as long as it's fully serrated.

Spyderco C60 Massad Ayoob Sprint Run?

I have a fully serrated Massad Ayoob that I have carried since they were first released. I love it. Great design, very ergonomic, fully serrated blade cuts like a beast and it rides easily in the pocket. The only improvement I could see would be give the Ayoob handle the J.D.
