The awesome deal I got!

Postby MJ23KB24 » Thu Jul 12, 2012 11:12 pm

Hey guys first time poster here but I thought I would share with you the deal I got on three Spderco knives! I saw this ad on Craigslist and jumped on it immediately I ended up paying 125$ for all three knives together. He had plenty but I knew what I was looking for and grabbed the Sage 1, Spyderco S, and the Carbon Fiber Native! The Native Pocket clip is pretty beat up and its not sharp at all. Plus the blade has some scratches. The Spyderco S wasnt sharp but fixed that. Then the Sage 1 wasnt sharp with chips in the blade along with the pocket clip being a little too spaced out. I fixed both of those issues and am pretty proud with my purchase! Another bad thing was no boxes were included but whatever. What do you guys think about the deal I made?

I regularly search CL for Spydies but all i ever find is like crap like "*****SUPER RARE VINTAGE SPYDERCO WORKER $9999.99*****". I never realized the Sage was that much bigger than a Native.

In the hand the Native doesnt feel any smaller then the sage. But yeah I had to drive an hour but it was worth the drive!

Yeah the guy didnt realize what he had, he was trying to sell me different ones but I knew the value I had when I picked the three I did. i know I struck gold with that Native too. Plus a Sage 1 was on my list for a while now.
