Re: 2017 Catalog...what's at the top or your list?

The Para 3 for sure. I haven't seen this one mentioned yet, but I'm excited to take a close look at the Polestar. I know it's a value offering and not that exciting for the majority here, but I think the Polestar could easily become the go-to knife for people who like the Para 2 but aren't willing t...

Re: Delica G10 S110V

Even if they sent S110V to Japan, it seems unlikely we'd see a Blurple G10 Delica. The G10 Delica and Endura were discontinued originally because they just didn't sell well compared to the FRN models.

Re: Here's my wants - What's My Knife?

I would go with a dragonfly. For a small knife it's really comfortable in the hand. Also the wire clip is pretty discreet. Which version? I see quite a few different options when I type in Dragonfly at online shops. Many colors, most with the VG10 blade for around $50, but then there's a 'foliage g...

Cat or Dragonfly get my vote. Chaparral if you want to spend a little extra money.

Re: Am I missing out on a Delica?

As for the reason that the FFG models aren't available in full Spyderedge, I think that there just may not be a huge advantage to it. Due to the way serrations are designed to cut, I don't think that having them on the FFG blade would offer any distinct advantage over the saber grind in full Spyder...

They do great work. I had a D4 with a destroyed edge that they reground for me.

Re: Am I missing out on a Delica?

It has in the past but I believe the only SE option currently available for a Delica is combo edge. The current saber ground D4 is available in all three edge configurations (PE, CE, SE). The FFG models the OP is asking about have only ever been available in PE. As for the reason that the FFG model...

Re: Where's the new Catalog?

The new catalog is always a bit of a treat. However, because Spyderco is so transparent with us ELUs about what is coming, it's not as much of a "big reveal" as it is for me when Kershaw and Cold Steel (my other preferred companies) release their new catalogs each year.

Re: The MAP announcement

Are you saying the new MAP will cause prices for Spyderco knives to go up, when it comes to we consumers? Because from what I read, the MAP change will not actually prohibit a retailer from selling a Spyderco for a minimum price, it will just ask them to not advertise that lower price, correct? Exa...

Re: New byrds

sal,

Any info on the weight of the new Raven. The old one in G10 was 3.3 oz according to your website. Hopefully the new one is comparable.

I seem to remember that it was back around 09 or 10 when you took a leave of absence>> I vaguely remember you telling us you had to leave for a while but it's been so long that I don't remember a lot of details.

Re: Native 5 Midnight Blue s110v Lightweight

I'm looking forward to this one in a big way, as well. I've got the S35VN N5 Ltwt and the S110V M2 Ltwt, and I absolutely love them. As a combo, they can't be beat. Can't wait to have them both in S110V.
