Re: Spyderco Byte 8/2017

Is whiskey a suggested pairing for the Chinook 4? I'm sure it would increase sales!

Seriously though, I'm glad this is finally on the way. Hopefully I'll be able to give one a workout this fall.

Re: Late love for Schempp Bowie

They are pretty nice pieces, and make a great gents folder. Love the negative blade angle. The brass is a nice touch, and I'm hoping we see brass bolsters on another Spyderco soon. The deep carry clip is one of, if not my favorite, clips. The knife disappears in the pocket, and the brownish colour o...

Re: Looks like the Chinook 4 bouta drop

Well, the Caly 3 HAP40 has arrived. Different factory I know, but I can't help but notice another made in Japan spydie has made it to market ahead of the almighty Chinook. May the Chinook 4 be the next release! "We have a large number of new models to come out and we're tying to meter them out so a...

Re: Caly 3 HAP40 dropped

I've been thinking about getting one since these were announced, but I still think they are too small for my tastes. Better off to let someone else have a bite and wait for the 3.5. One model I know for sure will it my hand is the Persian 2 - How about one of those in HAP40 - They were made at the s...

Glad the pics are back up. Thanks Darby. The Photobucket debacle has destroyed some of the past great forum threads.

Police 4 (Maybe. Who am I kidding... Probably.)
Shaman (Finally, after all these years!)
Native Chief (Early reports from the Sal after 18 years!)

Re: What models should Spyderco come out with next?

Really though, I'd like to see the Native Chief and Military 2 (with stop lock). Besides the Chinook and the Shaman, those two have been on my radar for years. Unless Spyderco unveils something else amazing (which they always manage to do) that's all I want and really need.

Re: Time for New, More Advanced Spyderco Pocket Clips

They sometimes use a nice black coating that isnt paint, i would champion that more often, or as an add on. I dont think deep carry would be such an issue to some if the clips didnt look like they had just been torn off of Donna Summers corvette. I agree with this. Some may like the shiny clips, bu...

Re: Native Chief - Can we get a heartbeat?

I'm kinda hoping it still has a backlock, and either Native 5 lines or is like the prototype, however I would not throw away a larger Shaman.

Lords and Ladies, So, this happened in the Spyderco Shaman News and Gossip Thread: "Eric and I are considering the Native Chief as well. development is mostly done, should be easy to slide into queue. sal" Now I am wondering, what does the Chief look like after all these years? Does it still resembl...

Re: Spyderco Shaman News and Gossip Thread

The design has been in development for years. In the end, I decided to use non textured 3D G-10 with S30V. "Grip" is in the form. This is a basic to watch the model. Plenty of opportunity for sprints and exclusives. I'd like a version like the new Native fluted Carbon with S90V. I like the way it c...

Re: Spyderco Shaman News and Gossip Thread

Not sure why, but all the years I've been dreaming about this knife, I always pictured it coming with tan/sand/coyote brown (or whatever that type of colour is called) G10 scales. One of those "natural" colours. Again, I have no idea why I thought this, especially since most other G10 models typical...

Re: Spyderco military 2

Stop lock folks, stop lock! As was foretold many years ago. I too would lament the loss of the current style of clip. It is my favorite, bar none, and I wish it was on every Spyderco. (I also wish the Military-shaped handle was on every Spyderco, but I realize the knives would then all be quite simi...

I'd be interested to know as well. The PM2 and Para 3 will be getting Maxamet. Those are too small for my tastes, so I'd be very interested if Maxamet came to the Military.

Re: Looks like the Chinook 4 bouta drop

By my crazy, baseless calculations (i.e. looking through the calendar and supplement), from Japan we are also still waiting on the Police 4, ATR 2, Caly 3 HAP40, Opus, and maybe a kitchen knife or two. Last I remember, the Police 4's were waiting to go through QC, and I thought the ATR 2's were not...
