For the price I assume that this will be a Golden, CO manufactured blade? After some thought about the chosen steel and handle materials, it sure seems like a far better deal than a small sebenza (similar construction materials). Of course this is just a visual assumption, I've never handled a CRK k...

Axis-Lock :p , by far the most fun to flip around. CBBL is very similar in engagement, but it requires a great deal of tension and that makes it hard to manipulate the mechanism single handedly. The Axis can be manipulated with just the thumb or just the index finger. Second would be the compression...

Haha, the super refined quality of my Golden Spydies have definitely spoiled me. The Bits I pointed out have zero effect on functionality, so it's all just personal preference.

I managed to pick one of these bad boys up for great deal. My model has the same grind issue, but I will eventually end up evening it out with use and sharpening. The only part of the grind that is really bad is the very tip... again, fixable. What I really do not understand is why aren't the visibl...

The cf stretch is one of my favorite blades to use on a daily basis, it's just about perfect. The peel ply cf is grippy, but not too harsh on the pants. The frn on the other hand usually pulls threads out of the corner of my pockets. Count me in for one. G10 in anything but black; not too sure about...

This thing looks great. But It looks very much like the ambitious, and the dimensions are pretty close. Techno specs: Blade 2.55", closed knife 3.45" and overall 6.00" Ambitious specs: Blade Length 2.25", Closed Length 3.594" and Overall Length of 5.812" I've carried the ambitious quite a bit, but t...

Thanks all, I really didn't search around for other posts concerning the topic at hand. I didn't realize the amount of dealer specific sprints that were out there. Yea, the two examples I posted were of the extreme, but I tried my darndest to get a hold of the of the gray PM2 months prior of release...

Sprint Runs

Hi all, I have been a fan of Spyderco's knives for quite some time now. They are a great manufacturer offering versatile, comfortable and robust knives that can handle nearly all of your cutting task needs. The fact that there are available variations in blade material is just icing on the cake. . ....

So now just debating on which to get now or later, or both now etc etc.
I understand where you're coming from, the G-10 version is noticeably heavier that the FRN. Not necessarily a bad thing though, the G-10 still pretty light!

It can be done. I have a buddy that bought both specifically to swap the ZDP-189 blade into the FG G-10 & steel liners. Carrying it around right now in fact. I think he gave the VG-10 & BRG FRN "parts" to his wife for her own EDC. I successfully constructed the Frankenstein G-10 ZDP-189 Dragonfly! ...

Ahh, it finally showed up. All I have to say is that the BRG D2 is friggin awesome!!! Not to mention it's substantially lighter than the g-10 version. Side by side comparison looks like the blades could be interchanged, but I don't think I will be attempting it. Side note, I have no idea how the bla...

Just wondering if I would be able to swap the blade out and slot it into the scales of the Dragonfly FG g10 without having to make any adjustments?
Ditto, I'm definitely gonna give it a try when my BRG comes in!

Not anymore! :p

I finally caved in to give the PM2 a try.

BTW Jim at Howe's is a very friendly salesman. Also his prices aren't too bad, plus free shipping. I will definitely do future business with them.
