just got a wegner jr!

Postby 5150 » Wed Feb 15, 2006 6:12 pm

just got a plain edge numbered wegner jr. in mint condition! :D it is my new favorite knife, hands down. :D i am a fan of the full size wegner, but find it a little too big for edc. guess what? i'm thinking that's why the spydie factory churned out some smaller ones. perfect handle for my hand, as far as smaller knives go, a useful shaped blade and built rock solid and smooth. :cool:
anyone know how long they were made or anything else regards this knife? :confused:
any other wegner jr. fans out there? :confused:

seriously sorry i don't have any pics dudes. :o

Ohhh ya. Another really nice knife. Fits the hand oh so well - easy open and easy close. Not klunky or bulky. It is my dresss up carry knife. You will love it - congradulations. :cool:

Aloha 5150,

I HAD a CE version, and **** if I gave it away!!! :o I like the full size better...especially in PE! Ergo's are great on both though!

Congrats, and Outlaw should be here soon with pics... :rolleyes: :D

thanks guys! the only way i can imagine someone not being a fan of this model, is cause they haven't handled it in person. :eek: but i guess maybe i'm a little on the outer fringe! :p
so...
how long were these in production for? longer or lesser than the full size? :confused:
outlaw, bro, i forgot about you man! wenger all the way eh? :cool:

The Wegner junior is my all time favorite Spydie. I have two and I need more. Can you say sprint run in carbon fiber?!

Aloha 5150,

That is a common problem amongst Spyderco's. For example, I was not a fan of the Dodo until I was able to handle one. I ended up buying it of course! ;)

Cripes, I hope this will not be the case with my Lava! :(

God bless and uh, I think it's best TO forget Outlaw...well, sort of. :p :D

5150,
Sorry don't have any production dates for you. Believe it or not, I wasn't "into" the design when it was in production. Thought it was too "rounded" :confused:
Back then I carried a BM 975 / Emerson CQC-7. Not really sure what I was thinking... :o

Looking at the 6 :spyder: Wegner boxes I have, only 1 has a date. It's for a C48GPS, 6/22/01. So I'm guessing the production run started/stopped somewhere in late 90's for the C49.
