Re: Native 5 as "Essential" in Backpacking Magazine

While we're on the subject, where or where is that FRN-bodied Caly3? That would make a nice pack folder.

Native 5 as "Essential" in Backpacking Magazine

The FRN Native 5 got on the list of "Essential Accessories" in Backpacker Magazine April 2016 issue. "Best way to update a classic? Make it lighter. Spyderco shaved the weight to 2.5 ounces by changing the handle to fiberglass-reinforced nylon. The material feels, well, cheap, but its multidirection...

Re: Dialex Junior Review: Massively Underrated Folding Knife

Interesting. I don't own Paras, so didn't know that. About how close to the end of the handle is the center of the pivot on the new Para? Having the newer Para move the pivot forward might indicate the designers thought the knives would be plenty strong with less support around the pivot. At some po...

Re: Dialex Junior Review: Massively Underrated Folding Knife

Have you noticed how far forward the pivot sits on the Junior? It's really close to the end of the handle, about 7mm. (Compare that to a Sage, at about 13mm.) That translates to a larger blade:handle ratio, which I really like. I don't want to be carrying around a lot of empty handle, I want to carr...

Re: Dialex Junior Review: Massively Underrated Folding Knife

But I just can't see what the Junior model can do that my dearly beloved TEMPERANCE 1 model is capable of. The Junior model is probably one I doubt I'll ever own. Because after hearing EVIL D. comment on the fact that he didn't find the Junior to fit his hand very well>> whereas my TEMPERANCE 1 fit...

Re: Dialex Junior Review: Massively Underrated Folding Knife

Dialex Jr. also one of my favorites, gets carried lots. Had to buy a "pre-need replacement" just in case. The marketing on the knife was off because "rough tough knife-using men don't carry kid's knives." I'm positive it would have been more popular if not profiled as a kid's first knife. I love it ...

Re: Amsterdam Meet 2016 Report of Spyderco Prototypes

Thanks for the great photos, W. I've decided to buy an Ouroboros just based on your photos and description! Say--isn't an ouroboros a snake that eats his own tail? I suppose that's what we get when this knife is folded--!

Re: Amsterdam Meet 2016 Report of Spyderco Prototypes

Cute! But...no concern of the index finger sliding forward onto the blade with the Lil' Lum?

If you shorten the word "cute" by one letter at the end, what do you get?

Caly Yes Please

Just putting in my 2¢ -- yes, a new Caly3 please. My wish would be a compression locked model if possible and an upgraded steel (not that there's anything wrong with VG10).

What time of year does Spyderco usually offer new models?

Is there a particular time of year that Spyderco customarily makes its new models available?

Re: Sal what are the longterm Caly plans?

I'd like to see a future version of the Caly without blade play, which exists on all 8 of my Calys. Compression lock Caly would be nice, or upgraded backlock with the pin stop. But honestly, if it has that super useful and highly refined Caly blade shape and size + slim handle + deep carry, I'll buy...

Re: OFFICIAL 2016 Discontinued List

Maybe just add an internal stop pin like the Chaparral, or make the lock like the Native 5, and with that, keep everything else the same and re-release it!!! With HAP40. :D Yes, that's what the Caly3 needs most of all. That blade play is annoying and unnecessary. I'd also like to see a Caly3 made s...

Re: Spydercos at 50%+ off MSRP

This sort of information leads to additional sales (if anybody at Spyderco is listening). I had no inclination to purchase an Air Bradley until this thread got me investigating, whereupon spotted a good deal, and jumped.

Re: Spydercos at 50%+ off MSRP

THANK YOU RAMZAR, what a great service!

Let's all relax about buy/sell info on the list. The whole point of Spyderco, as a business, is to sell. This is helping sellers sell. And tonight I'm in a buying mood. One of the main reasons I visit the list is to find precisely this sort of information.
