C188 Dog Tag release date?

Postby jah » Sat Jun 14, 2014 7:58 am

Anybody have an idea of when the C188 Dog Tag will be available?
Any further mention/discussion of a Ronin re-release?

I tried searching for the C188 and "dog tag, "dogtag" without hits, so figured I would start a thread. :D

It was in the mid-year supplement so I have to think/hope in the next 6 months. The specific timelines are seldom available unless Sal chimes in. I believe it's a bit of a mystery for them at times and it's a practice or under-promising and over-delivering for happy customers.

I don't know when but I may be picking this one up when it comes out. It is a cool little knife.

Does this knife have any locking mechanism on it?

Howes has it listed on their website, so it shouldn't be long. He also just listed the Chubby yesterday (?) and the Rubicon a few days ago. This usually means imminent release within the next 2-3 weeks, but that's just "usual" and not iron-clad.

Tks! Knifecenter has them listed as a pre-order, so figured the release was sometime in this century :(

Thanks Sal, and an apology, the last post was directed at KnifeCenters pre-order process, not Spyderco . I pre-ordered once from them on a sprint run Spyderco, and it was never fulfilled, after waiting months. The tone of the post upon re-reading it comes out wrong, what meant as humor, could easily be mis-construed.
So thanks again for the great knives, particularly the Delica, one of which has been in my pocket almost everyday since I first purchased one in the 90’s!

No problem,

Many often joke about our delivery dates.

I didn't see myself buying one of these when I first saw it...but I've rethought it and I'll almost definitely pick one up.

I want one so bad I can just about taste it. ;)

On a different note, I had the pleasure of being able to hold one of Serge's actual custom Dog Tag Folders at the BLADE Show this year. IIRC, I believe he was using CTS-XHP and brown G-10. Just about plunked the $$$ down for that little beauty. :-) Must...have...patience...ugh.
