But it turned to the possibility of a group purchasing knives on their own and having them engraved as an "Unofficial" Forum Knife. I wanted you all to be aware of this, before anyone did that and couldn't back out of it.

;) Although, it is always a fun discussion to watch.

I'll post more when those are complete. As I mentioned though, Sal and I are both traveling, so it'll be at least a couple of weeks before I can give out details.

Thanks though!

Kristi
o....well thank you then! :o

With all this talk about the old Calypso Jr. ....maybe it should be that bad boy. Nice and affordable. Best cutter ever.

Some great ideas, and this time, I think I'll follow through.

Really like the idea of the Meerkat or the Calypso Jr.. The first blade that went through my thick skull was the Meerkat with a better steel choice than Aus 6. Quite fond of that little blade even with the steel it has.

Thanks Kristi.

Hey Taz,

I will be in on this no matter what knife model it is & no matter what the handles are made of. I would prefer a folder over a fixed blade & would like a sub 2 1/2" blade so I could carry & use it here in Chicagoland :)

But I am not concerned with what it turns out to be I support whatever your choice is & will get it for sure :D

Thanks for doing this for us ;)

I'll second the Caly Jr, though the original 4" Calypso would be at the top of my list as well. My ZDP Caly Jr, which was high hollow ground to a .005" edge by Tom Krein is probably my most used folder by far. Having a factory version of that knife (or a full size Calypso!) would be a great knife to have as one I could keep close to factory specs to have as a cherished user/loaner to show others what Spydercos are all about. I find once people use Spydercos they start buying lots of them, as those "funny" looks turn out to be so functional. Just ask my Dad who just bought a Civilian because he wanted a good last ditch SD knife. A couple of my Spydies are on the permanent borrowed status with my old man after his joking about the looks. Now you can't pry a Spyderco out of his hands.

How about the new Sage Titanium framelock we saw a while back? I am eagerly awaiting the release of that!

I think that may be the Titanium Framelock (RIL) Sage2 your thinking of.


I would like to see it be the rumored Ti Framelock Military. (Hopefully with G10 and nested liners on the opposing side)

Your right ClockWork, I was looking at carbon fiber Natives on the bay and put the wrong thing. Either of those Ti models would be great!

:D :D :D I'm with you on this one David. The Calypso Jr. would make an excellent forum knife.

I was thinking that the last 2 forum knives were forumite designed. Maybe a new one in 2009 with forumite influence could be the one. Chokwe.
