That's right, but I'm working on some more footage of the same knives though.

It was on my end, how about now?
I see it.
Good, thanks!

I think it was still stuck on 'private' when I first posted it. It should be public and viewable now.

Video: Spyderco 2019 Production Sample – Police 4 Lightweight

This year, I managed to also shoot some video of the various production samples. I figured this might give an even better impression of the new Spyderco knives. First up, the excellent Police 4 Lightweight Production Sample!

Re: Spyderco Amsterdam Meet 2019 Report

CHIEF!!! My only complaint is that there are no liners... I think it has nested liners. One of Wouter’s pics gives me hope. In any case, we have a heartbeat! I thought so too, but I think it's just light through the crack. You can see his finger. I thought it didn't have any liners at all.

Spyderco 2019 Production Sample – Byrd Harrier

The Byrd Harrier in G10 is another great way to catch the Spyderco Bug on a budget. Knife snobs might scoff at its ‘made in China’ label and its 'lesser blade steel'. However, back in the mid- to late 1990s, this would have probably been considered a premium factory knife. The quality is impressive....

Spyderco 2019 Production Sample – BaliYo

I was happy to see the BaliYo getting an upgrade at this year’s Amsterdam Meet. If you like knives, you’ll probably like balisongs as well, or at least played with one. A BaliYo takes the game of the balisong knife and it puts it in a pen. My co-workers might not always appreciate the clickety-clack...

Spyderco 2019 Production Sample – Native Chief

I have to say that the Native Chief was my favorite of the new knives that Spyderco showed at the meet. Call it nostalgia, as I remember seeing that concept design on the forums back in 1999 or so. This was back in the day, when you had to put a knife on a flatbed scanner, cover it with a cloth and ...

Re: Spyderco Amsterdam Meet 2019 Report

1.86 oz for the Sage LW? That doesn't seem possible. The Delica LW is 2.5, the Chaparral LW is 2.0. I guess both those knives have metal in the spine that the Sage hasn't got, but they also have less blade and less liner. Or, I measured inaccurately or I made a mistake. Please take my 'hand measure...

The P4 will be VG-10 as the other blades in the family. I'm also planning a K390 (midnight blue) and ZDP (BRG) versions in time.

Thanks for the clarification Sal, I'll update my posts.

Spyderco 2019 Production Sample – Sage 5 Lightweight

I made a rookie mistake when ‘judging’ the new Sage 5 Lightweight, I went by its looks. The new grip pattern looked different, and therefore a bit ‘wrong’. Then I picked up the knife, and ‘got it’. Are you familiar with the grip effect on the FRN pattern slipits, like the UK Penknife, Urban or Squea...

Spyderco 2019 Production Sample – Emphasis

The Spyderco Emphasis is kind of a larger version of the Efficient. So with the Efficient, Small Efficient and the Emphasis, you got a nice trio of value folders. The Emphasis handled heavier but well balanced, compared to the Small Efficient. It also looked and handled a lot like another large G10 ...

Spyderco 2019 Production Sample – Small Efficient

The small efficient is, simply put, a smaller version of the efficient. As is usual for Spyderco, the 'cockpit area' (the area of the knife covering roughly the pivot, choil and opening hole) seemed the same size. The blade and back of the handle are shortened to achieve a smaller version of the sam...

Spyderco 2019 Production Sample – Dragonfly 2 Wharncliffe

The wharncliffe Spyderco Delica was popular enough to bring out an Endura with a big ‘wharnie’ blade, and now we can look forward to a Dragonfly 2 with a wharncliffe blade. Personally, I prefer the ‘wharnie’ in a smaller blade. An original Kiwi has been my office folder for over 10 years now. I’ll d...

Spyderco 2019 Production Sample – Dragonfly 2 Emerson Opener

When the sun’s out and the shorts come out, there’s a Dragonfly clipped to my pocket. They’re as easy to carry as pocket lint, and boy do they cut! You might not realize it, but with regular XL sized hands you can get a full grip on this little folder, and it’s very practical. Living in an urban are...

Spyderco 2019 Production Sample – Endela

As the name implies, the Endela is the size in between the Delica and Endura. I guess the SKU number should be C10.5? This is not just a ‘shrunken’ or ‘enlarged’ blade, depending on your perspective. The grip and blade have both been redesigned to be an intermediate size between the Delica and Endur...

Spyderco 2019 Production Sample – Police 4 Lightweight

I certainly didn’t see this design coming, the Police 4 with a lightweight FRN handle. This knife is all sorts of long, slender and light weight. I can imagine you’d forget you’d carry this knife, it’s that light for its size. If I recall correctly, the bladesteel on the lightweight will (also) be K...

Spyderco Amsterdam Meet 2019 Report

I loved seeing my fellow knifeknuts and the Spydercrew again at this 15th Spyderco Amsterdam Meet. It’s nice to see that many of my ‘own kind’ in one place. And, oh right, there were also a ‘few’ of Spyderco prototypes….;-). We needed a bit more time than last year, to determine what knives could be...
