Create your own Spyderco "Chimera"

Postby avocadobbq » Sun Mar 25, 2012 6:47 pm

I was wondering which features people want to see more of. To answer this, I want you to take a spydie, and imagine changing at least 2 things about it. These things have to be in other Spydercos already and they have to be within reason. GO!

More full Spyderedge knives.

How about some Full flat gring fully serrated blades.
My favorite Spyderco is the one I'm carrying now :p


I got a thing for stainless steel and frn ....

It may becoming a issue :p

Delica/yo2. If you can give a delica a matriarch blade, you can give it a wharncliffe. That may be the last knife I ever buy 5 of.

Deljimbo? Yolica? Good one, I think it would be cool to see a delica with the blade thickness of the Yojimbo.

It's already been done.....the Para 2 :D Different steels and colors coming soon to a neighborhood near you. Love to see another with S90V. Maybe the Military and others with a compression lock. :rolleyes: Did I forget to mention others with a compression lock? :)

I had a feeling I was gonna get a "Para2 is perfect post." I guess it wouldn't be a real thread without one :)

I like that!

I'd build a Sage with a Compression lock and Natural G10 scales.

Awesome
(ok take out that silly lanyard slot while you are at it and put a big tube like the PM2)

EDIT: And change the useless clip for a wire one like on the Sage1

Here are a couple that have been discussed here recently, plus two:
-Lava with G-10 or Textured CF scale, in SE
-G-10 Sprint Jester sized up proportionately by 2x, available in SE
-Vagabond-style FB with 3.5-4" H-1 blade, orange G-10 or FRN handle, and separate sheath--kind of like a mini Aqua Salt.
-G-10 Cat with better blade steel and jimping

Real (midlock) bolster & scales Kiwi with a narrow leaf shaped blade and full flat grind (think Lum Chinese, only narrow and without the spine bevel). If only 2 changes allowed, then either the original version's jigged bone scales, or the CF ones of the last production version. If a third change is ok, then add cocobolo scales like the first Kopa's.

Para 2 with titanium scales and an integral compression lock. Like the little brother to the titan Millie.

Amen to that. Make a sharnie Delica and i'll buy one.

I'd just like to see more blade variations in other models. How sick would it be to have a wharnie or hawkbill Para 2? I know i know, someone will say "why not just get a Yo 2 or a Superhawk?" and the answer is because i want the exact same handle/lock but with a different blade option.

Since the Sage series is all about different locks you might get your knife!

I think that's called a Spear Shape, like the Caly 3.5. I like it better than the Kiwi's too.

I'm surprised they haven't made a titanium Para 2 yet, I bet it would sell.

I want something like the Manix Lightweight but in a more compact package. Maybe a linerless Caly 3 or Delica with a cage ball lock. And I'd put on the classy FRN scales from the Squeak. Last but not least a deep carry clip is a must for me.
