Re: Dating Myself...

I dunno, Crux. I'm not bad looking, like sports, and laugh at all my jokes. So overall I think I'm a pretty great date. But seriously, thanks to all (and Sal!) for your replies and info. Those solid Almite PEs are rare; slotted versions seem much easier to find, probably because they're more recent.

Dating Myself...

I have a question for those of you who've been collecting Spydercos for a while. Was there ever a plain edge Navigator with a SOLID blue Almite handle? I've seen them with slotted blue Almite handles, and I have one with an SE blade and solid blue handle. And I believe a plain edge Experimental Navi...

Re: Have you gotten your dream blade of 2018?

I got a blue M390 Para 3 that I like a lot. And, continuing the blue theme (though not the dream theme), I added a blue FRN Robin 2 into the daily rotation. I also got one of the two I had been waiting for--the Brouwer. With a clip switch it's pretty great. The other one, the one I've really been wa...

Hey steelcity16, I'll give you the Dragonfly Salt with blacked-out H1 blade if you'll give me the toxic green FRN handle. It would be like a Dragonfly 2 version of the USN Ladybug Salt Hawkbill...

Re: PM3–what would it be?

Sorry if I mis-read the title. I guess I saw the title and thought Para 3. Thanks for correcting.

Dragonfly 3?

It's hard to mess with a classic and I'm a big believer in "If it ain't broke don't fix it." That said, I've been thinking about what I'd do to the Dragonfly 2 to make it even better. I've been EDC-ing a Super Blue Dfly 2 for a long time for non "dress" occasions, and a SE FRN version of the Dfly 2 ...

Re: PM3–what would it be?

I think the PM 3 is pretty darn great as-is, especially for those of us who can't carry a PM 2 due to length limit restrictions. That said, I agree that the lanyard hole could be dispensed with and a shorter deep carry clip added (wire, or otherwise), And I know I may be in the minority here, but I'...

Re: 2018 Alistair Phillips!

Thanks, RonT2, for sending this info that I missed! Of course, I'd prefer the 3" version of the Phillips to have the same lock as the original, but with design like this, I can work with a slippie. What can I say: Spyderco is the best.

Re: 2018 Alistair Phillips!

I'd like to echo MichaelScott's post. I, too, was totally ready to immediately buy a Phillips Redback until I got to the specs in Mr. Blonde's much anticipated Amsterdam Show post. I live in CA (Los Angeles) where the folder carry limit is 3". How disappointed am I? This Phillips has everything I lo...

UKPK S110V Drop Point?

I've been eyeing the navy UKPK with S110V blade, But before picking one up I wanted to ask if anyone knows if Spyderco has any plans to bring out a drop point version in that steel. I much prefer that blade shape, which was offered on past UKPKs, and would wait for it if it's ever going to be produc...

Re: How about a Leafstorm sprint?

+1 to Paladin's comments above. I've always wanted a Leafstorm--love the looks, the specs, the handle material, etc. But I never got one because I have a Techno that I really like and because every time I looked at the point on the heel of the Leafstorm blade right next to the handle I could see it ...

Re: New Salt Handles

While the retooling is in process, Sal, please consider adding a toxic green option to the mainstream Salt handle choices, especially for the Dragonfly Salt. I'd love an alternative to the yellow, and toxic green is in the same hi-visibility color palette.

Re: Super Blue??

I've been EDC-ing a Super Blue Dragonfly for a while now. It's a great version of the Dfly but there are definite drawbacks. I live near the ocean and the tarnish and now a tiny bit of pitting are obvious. I've used Flitz but at least one pit on top of the blade spine looks like it's here to stay. T...

Re: Byrd Morph to Spyderco?

The Finch 2 is about the same size as a Ladybug or a Jester (my all-time favorite small Spyderco). The choil makes it different and is what attracted me to it. The Byrd Starling 2 looks to be almost identical to a Ladybug.

Byrd Morph to Spyderco?

I just bought a Byrd Finch 2, my first Byrd knife in years. As many have said, the Finch 2 is a great little knife for the money. I really like the design although I'd prefer better blade steel and I'd also like it to be a bit bigger. So what I'm wondering is if it's possible for Spyderco to pick up...

Re: 2017 Catalog...what's at the top or your list?

I totally agree with the poster above who commented that this is the most exciting catalog in a while. Maybe because I go way back with Spyderco and am happy to see the new incarnations of some classic older models, such as the Meerkat and the Li'il Temp. I already have enough original Caly 3s or I'...

Re: Urban Elmax US Sprint Run?

I don't know K390. Is it similar to M390? If so, either that or Elmax in a lightweight FRN handle would be incredible for EDC & travel carry.
