Blade show 2015 news thread

Postby Liquid Cobra » Sat Jun 06, 2015 11:14 am

I haven't heard many reports from blade show, but I keep looking. I've heard there was a manix xl flipper there. I was under the impression that the new manix flipper was standard size. Also that there is a new para design, probably the shorter version.

Anyone else?

I'm here. Shaking hands and looking at new Spydies. :). I will check in on this thread in a few days once I get back home. :). The "what was in Sals left pocket" that I mentioned last month was here at the show by the way. It was the smaller paramilitary. ;)

Just so I'm clear, do you mean that there is a somewhat scaled down (smaller) version of the Para Military 2 that will be released?

Sal said they were working on one! And I guess there's a prototype now! :)

I couldn't make it to Blade Show this year. Just curious, what kind of knife pin did Spyderco give away this year?

I'm anxiously awaiting more news myself in the form of pics and videos. Lance, you better be taking notes! ;) I'm trying to anticipate the sticker shock of what awesome things I might see.

Re: the Manixes and Domino size comparisons, I dug up these pics I posted a while back that might help frame this discussion. Cheers, Radioactive :)

Yeah, this is definitely a nail biter. ;) What can you share with us from the proto case, Lance? Anything good? C'mon, man! :D

Thanks for starting this thread, LC. The suspense is killing me...
