Re: Would you prefer if Spyderco boxes were improved in any way?

I've had sellers go as far as to pack Styrofoam peanuts in the knife box so the knife doesn't move in transit. If that is a beneficial thing for shipping a Spyderco (which I think it is) wouldn't it be kind of fair to say that step maybe should have been taken by Spyderco themselves, rather than th...

Re: FRN Police 4

Since the new FRN versions will be lightweight you could bring back the Boyd dent and shave off a few more grams from the weight. :D Just a thought. I have the current G-10 P4 and I love it. It's probably my absolute favorite Spyderco I've ever had, but I can imagine slightly preferring the boyd den...

Re: Crazy deals @ Sierra and other places

I'm very surprised the Para 3 deal I posted is still available to be purchased. It's almost $50 less than the average best price elsewhere. Also surprised others on here don't seem too interested in it, or at least nobody has commented that they bought one... heh I guess it's a very unpopular deal ...

Re: Would you prefer if Spyderco boxes were improved in any way?

Here's a different idea: for only the rarest and more expensive of the Spyderco releases they could use a box with better protection. Or at least use more padding than normal etc.... :) Take any of the limited releases that have had a small number made and sold out very fast. If you were lucky enou...

Re: Would you prefer if Spyderco boxes were improved in any way?

I think the issue has more to do with the retailer in question. even with sturdier packaging, you'd surely not want to see the box dinged up, so you'd prefer to have it shipped properly. I agree. In the first post I mentioned Spyderco maybe needs to try to better educate their distributors as far a...

Re: Crazy deals @ Sierra and other places

Are para 3 actually being faked? I haven't seen any or heard of any. That's why I think the para deal I posted is a near certainty for being real, plus it's the spyder edge version which wouldn't be as likely on a fake para. If I'm wrong and there are fake para 3s out in the wild with full serrated ...

Re: Would you prefer if Spyderco boxes were improved in any way?

Not at all. The boxes are fine as they are. I want any and all improvements focused on the knives themselves. Blade and Handle and other materials and mechanisms. If anything I would prefer it if Spyderco were to keep the boxes even plainer and less advanced than they are, perhaps a generic cardboa...

Re: Would you prefer if Spyderco boxes were improved in any way?

Huh, I didn’t notice that. I always prefer to keep the cash in the home economy myself, but that’s getting harder and harder. Personally, I’d be fine with a recycled brown cardboard fold up style box with no embellishment. I'd also be plenty happy with some plain cardboard box, if it had strength i...

Re: Would you prefer if Spyderco boxes were improved in any way?

Well I voted before I read your post. You make a good point, but I’d rather just see the vendor take more care in their shipping. One knife I ordered came in a padded envelope with no other packing- result, mashed corner on the box. 3 other vendors had very careful packing and contents arrived perf...

Would you prefer if Spyderco boxes were improved in any way?

What do you think? I have had some Spyderco distributors simply throw the brand new box in a padded envelope, with zero other padding or packaging and they ship it like that. I've had several different sellers do this. It has led to me getting a smashed or ripped up Spyderco box a couple times. Luc...

Re: Crazy deals @ Sierra and other places

Thanks for the crazy deal Mystery. I am debating hopping on this one or not as a possible gift knife. I definitely am not in need of anymore Para 3s or S30V in my collection. I believe your issue with the thread title is covered by "and other places", no? I agree that in-depth discussion that veers...

Re: How can you tell if black dlc blades are corroding?

There is so much bad information about knife blade coatings out there. And i rarely see people provide any evidence or talk from their own experience. People are just repeating each other like monkeys. Not all blade coatings are created equal and maybe people had bad experience with fake or bad DLC...

Re: Spyderco Deals!

Also, be careful ordering from Amazon. They're notorious for selling knock offs. This looks legit (at least the picture they're using does) but just do your homework to avoid getting duped. Yeah for sure. That is a good warning and reminder about amazon, but that is mostly only a concern with certa...

Re: Spyderco Deals!

Oh yeah, and a friendly reminder. Try to not go crazy overboard with deals and order way more than makes sense for you and your own budget. I think amazon is limiting 4 per account for this one. Also it's nice to try to leave more for others to grab before items sell out or the price changes. Just s...

Spyderco Deals!

I just found this really excellent price on a Para3 fully serrated . It's "temporarily out of stock", but you can order and WILL NOT BE CHARGED UNLESS IT SHIPS. Which it VERY likely will if you wait. Shipped and sold by amazon, not a 3rd party. Make sure you click to "clip" the coupon to save an ext...

Re: Para 3 exclusive at River's Edge Cutlery

Does anyone know how many of these were made? I think they said 300 were in the first batch and I remember seeing a post they made when waiting for the 2nd batch. It had said 120 more passed quality control from spyderco and were on their way to River's Edge. so maybe 420 were produced? or 500 or 6...
