Re: Are sprint runs too limited?

I'm a user/accumulator who appreciates trying out different steels. It's not a question of can I buy one, it's can I buy one and not pay an inflated price to a flipper who sees no value in the knife except an easy way to make quick cash. Is the knife worth MAP? I think so, but I am unwilling to pay...

Re: Are sprint runs too limited?

1200 pieces isn't the same as 1200 pieces when demand has increased, access has increased, and disposable incomes have increased. No, still 1200 pieces, just significantly easier to get. Are we debating how limited something is or how in demand it is because they're two different things. Right now ...

Re: Seki City FRN scales with nested liners

I've been begging for a move back to contoured FRN. The weird trend of going backward to flat slabs has been a real conundrum for me. My Natives need a good 20 minutes with a dremel to make them anywhere close to as comfy as a Delica. The thread on the Native 3 that just popped up showed off the cur...

Re: Are sprint runs too limited?

It doesn't seem like quantities are any less, more like flippers and resale value have increased so demand is greater. Higher demand doesn't mean something is more limited since 1200 pieces is the same as 1200 pieces. Back in '98 when the internet machine wasn't what it is today, sprints didn't sel...

Re: Pink Delica?

I spoke with management today and we'll plan on bringing the Delica ad D'fly in pink back into the line. We'll have to change something so as not to hurt earlier models. Maybe a blade shape change. Still full flat. We'll look at other models after watching demand. sal If they have your signature ma...

Re: Sal—design for Roadie 2

I’ve always liked the idea of the Roadie. The only reasons I haven’t bought a Roadie are the overly bulbous tip and underwhelming steel. I’m interested to see where this discussion leads. I have similar interest, although I always found the price a tad high too. It's a relatively simple knife. Slip...

Are sprint runs too small?

The chase of the sprint run has lost all fun for me lately. I remember when it used to be a challenge, but it was not a ton of work that lead to repeated disappointment when it failed. Yes, you can pre-order if you have the funds available and are prompt, but even that is a trick with some sites now...

Re: Back locks with edges going all the way to the handle

I've never carried a knife like the Delica or Native and thought that it would be better if it had 8 more millimeters of edge. If I found myself in that scenario, I guess I'd just carry a bigger knife. It's funny that a knife we haven't seen yet is sparking multiple threads. I prefer to one-hand dro...

Re: stonewash/acidwash

I wouldn't mind it on H1 knives which scratch the second you use them. Eventually they're a matrix of scratches, which doesn't bother me, but plenty of people probably don't enjoy. If Kershaw can do it on $20 knives it must be a relatively inexpensive process.

Re: Ideal Spyderco Knives For Lawn, Garden & Landscaping Jobs?

The SE H1 salt series knives are my go to knives for gardening and outdoors work. I just had my Pac Salt out cutting dead ornamental grass from last year. My Hawkbill D'fly also gets very regular yard use. Beat 'em up, put 'em away dirty and they're ready for more tomorrow.

Re: Who's gonna get a Counter Puppy?

Who's using a counter puppy? I can't pull the trigger because pricing seems way off to me when z cuts are so affordable, USA made and better steel.

Anyone have both for comparison pics?

Re: I wonder...Kiwi slipit

The slipit Kiwi was always close to great, but just a bit short. They tended to be thick behind the edges, making them less ideal slicers. They also tended to be nippy as David mentioned. Very strong springs and wicked tips. I don't mind if they are made in China, a thin FFG would be nice. I found t...

Re: Kapara in s90v?

Kapara's must be selling good. They have been Out Of Stock in the Spyderco Online Store for over a year. CQI models shipped out at the start of this year so it definitely hasn't been out of stock for a year. It is available now at most dealers. The Kapara is very nice, but already expensive and an ...
