Re: FRN/Lightweights: I just can’t get into them

Very fond of the Seki FRN, not so much the Golden stuff. I had a liner-less Native for about 48 hours, and then immediately sold it. Too "plasticy" for me. Every time I handled the knife it made a hollow "clacking" sound. Might try a LW Sage eventually, but waiting on the XL Stretch, and hoping for ...

Re: NEW: MGE Wholesale Teal Native5 Exclusive

Thanks for the 'heads-up" on this laker_cj. Very nice..love the color! If I didn't have any s90v or a Native I would consider this, but I am going to pass. I hate to get another knife and then have just one more of my current Spyderco models pushed to the "rear". I'm not into buying knives only to t...

I'm waiting for screw construction before I buy any more Manix LWs. Sold my few I had in the last purge. None until screws for me. Hopefully they change over before this one.
...thinking the same thing. I would like to see the CQI thing "kick in" with screw construction.

Re: Clear Manix 2 LW Vanax SuperClean sprint?

I'm not big on that clear look...but that's just me. To me it looks "dime store" novelty. I like the Vanax SuperClean suggestion, however.

Re: What’s up with the military?

We probably aren't seeing any retailer exclusives on the Military because its easier/faster to move a block of exclusive Delica/Endura models at around the $100 mark than it is to move the same number of exclusive Military selling in the $200 range. Although all those Para2 exclusives sure seem to f...

Re: DLT Exclusive Delica OD Green FRN and Coated Cruwear

Mine arrived today as well. Very nice...the color scheme is very Army. I will add that although the price of Spyderco produced Seki knives keep increasing unabated, the quality remains high. This is my third Spyderco Seki within the month and each has been flawless. The SS Endura and the Teal s30v E...

Re: DLT Exclusive Delica OD Green FRN and Coated Cruwear

I’m trying to resist. I even closed the browser window I’ve had open all afternoon. I love the steel/color combo, but I’m hoping they’ll run it in a Police and/or Endura. Even an Endela might get me to try that model for the first time, but as much as I like the Delica I generally opt for bigger mo...

Re: S35vn on the Tenacious...what does it mean?

Doesn't it make sense that Spyderco's profit made from selling a Chinese-made Tenacious, whatever the material, helps to pay salaries and bonuses of USA Spyderco staff, assist in Golden's maintenance and expansion, and aid development and research? Just sayin'. The cold facts are that the Golden pla...

Re: S35vn on the Tenacious...what does it mean?

I'm thinking of the Tenacious and brethren as a platform; the FRN VG-10 Delica/Endura platform aren't going anywhere despite the infinite variations we have seen from that platform. Many on the forum have been asking for a Tenacious upgrade for quite some time. Let's see what this Chinese maker can ...

Re: Thank you Sal for the pink Delica

I'm not big on pink as a color in general; probably a conditioned response. One more thing on my long list of things to meditate on. For those who love love'em, I'm happy you will have this opportunity.

Re: S35vn on the Tenacious...what does it mean?

I only own the Persistence, Tenacious (both blue G-10) ,and the Polestar in Spyderco's value-line; I have personally found them to be well constructed with good fit and finish. While neither are my favorite Spyderco model, I doubt anyone would be disappointed with a S35vn blade substituted for the C...

Re: S35vn on the Tenacious...what does it mean?

It truly changes the performance of any of those Chinese-made value line, production folders; and, of course doubles the price of each model. I'm not making a value judgement. We have all been asking for up-grade options. Put a S35VN blade in one of those titanium Byrd Cara Cara 2's and I'll buy two!
