Re: Spyderco's Hidden & Forgotten models

Great thread. My first spyderco was a pro-grip, which has been mentioned here as a forgotten model. And for anyone looking for some of these less often seen models, there is a catcher man for sale right now on bladeforums. Not sure if the price is good, but thought I'd pass along the info.

Re: What would be the most 'niche' or 'out there' Sprint possible?

Not sure if this fits into the "niche" category or just a dream knife for me....
Original Persian in non-clad Superblue with brass bolsters and polished brown micarta.

Jaypowell - don't just joke, do it!! It was an amazing moment and if you are into knives and spyderco in particular enough to be on the forums then it is an opportunity not to be missed. One thing this thread has made me consider is that I wish there was one offering from Spyderco that had that old ...

Thanks to everyone for the kind wishes. He is happy and healthy and will definitely be inheriting the knife, and probably all the others I collect between now and then as well!!

Best Spyderco Use Yet!!

On May 28th at 12:37 am, I used my Super Blue Caly 3.5 to cut my son's umbilical cord. I had discussed previously with our midwife the possibility of using my own pocket knife when the time came. I think she must have thought I was joling but when the time did come and she handed me the surgical sci...

Man those Persians are just beautiful knives!
Ok, new fantasy grail. Large bolstered super blue Persian with polished gray G 10.

Side note question about the Persians...when were the blade markings changed? Some have the gold bug and some have a black and some have the schempp logo.

Thanks for the replies. I forgot to include that I would like these knives for EDC rotation. I usually shuffle through a PM2, g10 endura, and a Delica 1. While I agree that the Caly is probably the better choice for everyday tasks I also have to agree with Gbelleh, that I should grab any Persian I s...

Another "Which to Buy" thread. Sorta

There are two spyderco knives that I have to have. The super blue Caly 3.5 and the large bolstered Persian. Sadly, I missed the boat when these knives came out and I am on a budget. They seem to go for similar prices and seem to be about equally as scarce, so which do I get first? Does anyone see th...

I don't believe they are dyed as the bevels on the edges are a little inconsistent. They look good , but close inspection reveals that they are hand made. I like the polished look. Makes it a very classy endura, but I would love the option to swap them out sometimes.

eBay SCORE!!

So I purchased an Endura 4 on eBay a few months ago for $40. Good deal right? Especially because it had custom black G10 scales. For the longest time I couldn't figure it out. At first I thought it started life as a stainless handle version and somebody had milled it down to fit g10 scales. Nope. It...

Ha. Just had to laugh because I know the store in st augustine you speak of. I am native to st. A and only discovered a few months ago that the store sold spyderco knives. But I still go to Jacksonville because the shop there has better prices. Welcome to the forum!!

Do you think any strength would be compromised? I would love to try this mod, but I may have to track down an older mule. Not sure I want to try to grind the k390 just yet. But I do love the look and the feel of the street beat and think a mule version would be pretty cool.

Perrin style mule handle

Has anyone done a deep finger choil on a mule? Similar to a street beat?? I know the holes in the tang may limit how deep it could be. Also the street beat is 4mm compared to the mules 3mm. If nothing else any photoshop wizards want to give it a shot?

My first was a second hand FRN pro-grip CE. Latest is a Delica 1 PE. I know, I should probably get a model that was made in the last ten years. I did have an Endura 4 for a short time. Lost it on the job unfortunately. Planning on a PM2 when I can afford it. But would love an FRN stretch. I am most ...

FRN pro-grip CE with integral clip. Carried it and abused it for about seven years or so. Never knew much about spydies until I lost it and started looking to find another. Picked up a PE Delica 1 and an Endura 4 CE for a steal. Love them both. Best part is I found the Pro-grip later. Worst part is ...

I, Justin Motley, do promise to give my friend and co-worker,Dave, a grey FRN PE drop point UKPK this week. This will be the second gifted UKPK in a month. I gave my father in law one for Christmas. I have found that for most day to day use the UKPK is more than adequate. What a great design.
