2013 Spyderco Forum Knife Native5 - C41GPGR5 - RELEASE INFO

Postby TazKristi » Mon Jul 08, 2013 1:44 pm

C41GPGR5 will be available for purchase on Thursday, 18-Jul-2013 at 0900 MDT.

The discount code will be FORUM2013 and it will give you a 40% discount off the MSRP. The 40% discount is only applicable to the C41GPGR5.

All sales will be handled by the Spyderco Factory Outlet store online at http://spyderco.com.

Maximum Purchase Allowed: TWO

What is the C41GPGR5:
The Spyderco 2013 Forum Knife is a reflection of both the deep tradition and commitment to innovation that characterize Spyderco. It is based on the Native5, the latest evolution of one of our most popular US-made designs. The full-flat-ground blade is machined from premium CPM S110V steel—an ultra-high-performance, state-of-the-art alloy that includes cobalt, niobium, molybdenum, vanadium, and almost three percent carbon. Its handle is also highly evolved, featuring full skeletonized stainless steel liners, a stainless back spacer, and a meticulously crafted back lock mechanism that took literally years of R&D to perfect. The handle is encased in green G-10 scales with a distinctive diamond-cut texture pattern and the liners, scales, and lock bar are all expertly hand sanded for an exceptional fit and finish. The 2013 Forum Knife will be the first production knife to use this new handle material with its very unique texture. A polished four-position hourglass clip completes the package, supporting tip-up and tip-down carry on both sides of the body and making the knife’s operation completely ambidextrous. A shining example of our US factory’s craftsmanship, this unique limited-edition knife is laser engraved on the reverse side of the blade with “Spyderco Forum Knife 2013.”

I'd personally like to say thank you for this. I know we (myself included) haven't behaved very well over this topic, and I still have this sick feeling in my stomach that something negative will still happen surrounding this knife, but I'm over it and just thankful to be able to buy it for myself.
