Pass around of my Spyderco C160 Foundry!

Postby GoldenSpydie » Tue Aug 19, 2014 12:10 pm

It’s here—your chance to handle, examine, compare, and photograph the rare Spyderco C160 Foundry. This knife is made in Golden, Colorado, USA, Earth exclusively for employees of Carpenter Tech. I scored one on the secondary market, and I have decided to let 8 lucky people play with it! :D

Here is a thread about it: http://www.spyderco.com/forums/showthre ... 60-Foundry!

Here are some pictures:

Don't let all of this scare you off; most of it is just common sense. However, it is important that you read and understand all of this if you wish to participate. :)
____________

Participation Requirements:

You must have been active as a Spyderco Forum member for at least 2 months.
You must be financially able to pay for the knife if it is lost or stolen while in your care or in the mail to the next person on the list.
You must agree to the Rules, Shipping Terms, and Extras.
You must be 18 years old or older.
You must be in an area where the knife is legal.
You must be in the US. Sorry, but no international mailing.
You must agree to pay for shipping to the next person on the list, including tracking.
You must be approved by me. I’m not trying to pick favorites, but it’s my knife, so I can choose not to allow someone in without specifying a reason.

Rules:


Each participant will have up to 4 full days with the knife after receiving it and will ship the knife on the 5th day.

Do not carry the knife for EDC. Sorry, but there are plenty of great Spydercos with CTS-XHP, and I don’t want muh baby to get overly scratched up.

Do not cut much with it, if anything. Again, this is to avoid unnecessary scratches.

Do not sharpen it or take it apart. It’s just CTS-XHP, so the urge to sharpen a new steel shouldn’t be too great. However, you may adjust the pivot with a T10 Torx bit if you would like to.

Do take lots of pictures/measurements/etc.

Do post pictures in this thread! :)

Shipping Terms:

The Foundry will ship in a soft Spyderco pouch , and that will be inside of a small wooden box. Please use an actual cardboard box (such as a flat rate box) to mail it in, not an envelope.

Insurance is optional, but if you choose not to purchase it, you will be responsible if the knife does not reach the next person in line.

You may ship it via the USPS, UPS, or FedEx, your choice. However, please be sure to purchase tracking. Tracking is a requirement for this pass around.

Extras:

If it is lost while you have it or while in transit to the next person on the list, you are responsible. This means paying me for the knife or replacing it with a Foundry of equal condition. The value will be discussed in pm or email.
I may terminate the pass around at any time for any reason. The person with the knife at the given time will mail it directly back to me.
This will run on the honor system. Please don’t just decide to keep it, even if you pay me and claim that you have “lost it.” I believe that on this great Forum, people are honest enough not to try any tricks, so please don’t.
And finally, if it comes back to me all scratched up and missing screws, dull, and dirty, I won’t be able to tell who did it, so I can’t blame anyone. But once again, it’s the honor system. Please don’t be stupid, and everything will work fine.

____________

Now GO! Claim one of the 5 4 2 0 open spots before they're gone! (Full until next time.)

Very generous of you. I'll pass and let someone else have a shot at it. Maybe I'll see one over at the SFO some time.

I'd totally be in if it werent for the rules.....
Id want to see how XHP sharpens
'Id want to see how it cuts with its current geometry.
Id want to see how it carries
then id look for one if it ticked my boxes... I am still temped to ask to enter but I wouldnt be able to justify shipping costs to have it for 4 days.
Plus im over seas, I would pay for the person before me to ship to keep it fair..... but I would still delay it by a month ...heh

Hope people enjoy it!

Hi GS, I'm absolutely in, thanks so much!!! I just sent you a PM with my info.

Now what other knives does everyone think I should take comparison pics with this beauty (not that GoldenSpydie doesn't already have them all anyway ;) )?

Cheers, Radioactive :)

I got your PM--you're in and confirmed!

We will wait a few days and see if there is any other interest, and then it's time for some pass around action!

I'd be interested in checking it out. I could probably do a video review of it too.

Hello GS,

I don't qualify as I live in Canada and also there would be no point since this is one of Spyderco's many great models that just didn't grab my attention.

But I would like to say that this pass around is quite a generous gesture and you have my full respect for having such goodwill towards those Spyderco forumites/fans who may be very interested in this knife but would never have the opportunity to see one prior to purchasing their own (if they can even track one down). :)

I see that "gbellah" is interested in reviewing it as well and hope that he would qualify to your satisfaction. I'm sure you've already seen seen his thread with the reviews of a continuous rotation of his many Spyderco's as well as the high quality and funny video's that he produces. If not, then you are in for a treat when you check them out! Even though this is not the knife for me, I would love to see another of his well produced video's along with the return of "the Hot Chick" and the "Tactical Mall Ninja Dude-Bro" - hilarious! :D

Regards......Steve

I'd totally be in, but I'd feel like I'm kind of a waste of a spot. I have the Native XHP so it's not about the steel, I just kinda wanna...fondle it :o . I just really dig the handle and the blade shape. The Carpenter logo is pretty cool too. So I guess I'll sign up as an alternate? I don't know, I ramble a lot so maybe I can put together a worthwhile review. Otherwise I'm ok with waiting for this to hit the mainstream market, and I am totally in for one.

You guys are in and confirmed via PM.

@ PayneTrain: That's what this pass around is for--fondling, pictures, comparisons, etc. So you're in!
