Re: Any update on the Police 4 K390?

Great pics everybody! You said it! I've tried to take a few pics, but my feeble attempts pale in comparison to the amazing shots I keep seeing from many folks on this forum. I'm having a hard time finding reasons not to get one of these. I like the military a lot. Rarely am I without one, so the ne...

Re: Which spyderco is in the mail?

I have a Chinook 4 on the way. This was my first pre-order, and it's likely also my last.

Re: Military and Para2 in s110v Blurple

I probably would have passed on the S110V Military if it had anything but a black clip. The black Military clips are IMHO the best clips on any spydie.

Re: Backlocks and back spacers

I was billed for mine today, so it should be on it's way soon. I'll let you know how mine is once I get it. It will definitely be next week though.

Re: Could you manage with 6?

Pretty sure I could get by with just a plain edge S30V Military if I had to. If I'm forcing myself to take six, I'd also pack a K2, likely a Chinook 4 and 3 spare Milie's.

Re: Anyone else grabbing a Chinook 4?

I've had one on pre-order for a while, so I'll be getting one. It's not "on the way" though, and my dealer says they have no idea when it will be. If I like it enough, I will buy a spare.

Re: New Models Dropped: Police 4, Chinook 4, Opus

Thanks a lot for your work. I especially appreciate your up-close videos. I think it's pretty impressive that Spyderco can release these three on the same day and still have much more to come in the coming weeks, not to mention what has already been released this year.

Re: Opus in the wild

The two pics are using different clips, have different lanyard locations, different pivot screws and one has an extra screw on the clip side. What is that extra screw for? https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=MxxhWinkizk Interesting. The finished product seems to be a distillation of both the KC and BHQ p...

So it can fit around the pivot screw when mounted tip down.
The location of the lanyard hole is different on the photo KC is using.

I wonder which is correct?

Re: Let's talk about Vanax

Based on the picture you provided alone, if that knife ever makes it to production, I will buy one. That's exactly the sort of thing I'd be interested in. No experience with Vanax myself, but now I'm interested.

Re: Looks like the Chinook 4 bouta drop

Yay. Probably will be a little while for the pre-order to be fulfilled, but we made it here anyways.

Looks like the Police 4 is out as well.

Re: Looks like the Chinook 4 bouta drop

Thought I would link this here. Not confirmation, but likely close to dropping.

Let's hope we close out September with our Chinook 4's in hand.

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...

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.

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...
