This talk about an LC200N Swick means I will finally buy one.

I bought a Swick 3 when they came out and that was my first experience with it. I can say it’s one my most used fixed blades while fishing always around my neck. S30v is great but I just ordered a lc200n mule and this Swick might need to accompany it. Excited

It really is better than it has any business being.

I'll be buying one of each hole size to see which I like best and then I will buy two or three of it. I just want to know if it's going to be a wharnie.

Hi Jason, Ugaarguy,

We've got a new Sage FRN in-the-works. Might be an interesting test?

Curious what the lock might be! :confused:

CBBL could be likely for FRN?

I keep hoping for a button lock, but assume it wouldn't be FRN

Yuck
:spyder: Make Mine Spyderco :spyder:

I have tried many different High End brands and only Spyderco consistently produces High Quality Knives with the most Innovative Steels and Incredible Designs and often for less money than others.

I have been surprised many times by Sal's design in the dark philosophy and agree with it. How it feels in the hand and how it cuts matters more than how it looks. Lipstick on a pig, does not make it something other than a pig.

Yuck might turn out to be appropriate but I doubt it. I like my FRN Spydies just as much as all the others. I'll be interested to see what they're going to do with this one.

I am not dissing on FRN, i just wish they/Spyderco would keep the Sage family a bit "classier" for lack of better words. After Cf, Ti and ironwood FRN does feel a little "Really??" :)

CBBL Sage sounds good too.

Put them together, and a CBBL FRN Sage sounds great!

I'm not sure how they'd avoid it, but I really hope a CBBL Sage doesn't have the extra "hump" like the Sage3.

I'm unfamiliar with this hump you speak of. I looked at some photos, but haven't discerned an appreciably-sized humps. I also have never held a Sage, so I have no feel memory to reference.

Would you mind elaborating?

Let's see if I can quote a post a from another thread. If this works, notice how when closed the Sage 3's blade sits higher above the handle than the Sage 2's blade does.

Excellent! I only looked at open pictures, so with the closed picture I now see how less of the Sage 3 blade rests inside the handle when closed than the others. Thanks, ugaarguy!

Abbazaba, is that what you meant?

You're welcome, and thanks to Sharp Guy for doing the real work of taking and uploading the comparison pic.
