Have to admit that clip placement is not an issue for me, personally, as I take them off. It's also, IMHO, the one "handedness" issue which can be remedied relatively easily on an otherwise desirable knife.spinynorman wrote:Hi All,
Wondering in the wake of the awesome left hand Millie, if there are any plans for any other left-hand variants?
I would LOVE to see a left hand Persian, for instance... I've always loved that knife, but I can't quite get around the right-hand only carry bit.
I have an old lefty Mariner, the lefty Millie, and all my others are left or right hand carry.
Sorry if this is a dead-horse forum subject, but what the hey, the squeaky wheels sometimes get the oil.
Exactly - I love the Persian, and it's ambidextrous except for the clip. Couldn't it be designed for a 4-way clip, like the superb Para 2 was? Does it really add significant production costs, or is it a matter of the clip placement not working out with the knife's design?The Deacon wrote:However, I must say I was somewhat baffled that the tactical version of the Persian was not set up for a 4 way clip. As for liner and frame lock models, I think left handed versions of a few of the most popular ones would sell well enough to be worth the R&D and tooling costs for Spyderco.
Agree 100%. I collect enough crap as it is, so I'm probably secretly grateful that I am a lefty and can skip the majority of Spyderco's releases.Douglas wrote:I have absolutely no compromise in me on the lefty issue. This saves me a bunch of money as I'd otherwise be interested in some of the liner locks, especially in the ethnic series.
Yea! Let's piss off all the righties for once. Although, a lot of people would probably buy it just to flip it, as is the norm with most of the sprints now, and ruin it for all the lefties who wanted one to use.Water_Gremlin wrote:How about a sprint run, one of a kind, Spyderco knife dedicated to loyal Spyderco customers?
