Name the spyderco you can't pull trigger on

Postby SF Native » Wed Mar 01, 2017 12:17 pm

So, I have been eyeing the fluted ti native for a long time and just can't seem to pull the trigger. I looks really good and would have a nice place in my collection.
What knife do you have trouble pulling the trigger on?

Oh there are lots. Far more that I can't than ones that I can and eventually do. There are some surprising ones that I expected to like and just didn't.

Native 5
Para 3 (and 2 for many years)
Manix 2 XL
Gayle Bradley 1 and 2

I could go on and on. I could also make a list of knives I never had any interest in buying but have ended up loving.

Manix 2
Military
Nilakka
Southard

The Techno, have had an attraction to it since i first saw it, but my rational side says "It's built like someone took a Zeb Macahan Bowie blade blank and whittled it down to lilliput size, and what's with the blue backspacer?? I mean BLUE? Come on.. And besides i don't like 3 1/2 finger handles"
Still there are days my mouse pointer hovers over the "buy" button :)
Of course there's a plethora of models i will not pull the trigger on because i don't like them much/at all, but i interpreted the question as for knives you kinda want.

I'm intrigued by the Battlestation, which is a knife that doesn't get a lot of attention. I've had it in my shopping cart 4-5 times over the last year, and just can't push the button. I like short blades in substantial handles, so that's great, and I'm drawn to the funky design, but it looks like it would be a terrible slicer.

Manix 2 LW in S110V for fear of the wife as well. Well, I did warn her that I want to buy one sometime this year, so I might be able to get away with it sooner rather than later...

The Cruwear CF Manix 2 exclusive, M390 PM2 exclusive, and a Chaparral (in that order) I can't convince myself of because they're all too pricey for me at this stage.

I realize my list may not give others pause, but I have always been one to make practical purchases, and I don't need another knife.

The fluted Military is a huge one on my list because I love the Military and absolutely love the fluted titanium but the added weight is a big turn off and for the price and how I use the Military it's just not a good combination for me.

Yes, knives you want and would suit your needs.
I don't have as much use for really big knives, so the military and tatanka are not on my list.

I like my techno, btw. Not spectacular but it goes in the pocket fairly frequently. May not suit your needs.

For some reason, I really just can't pull the trigger on the Salt I. It's not too expensive or anything, I just tend to gravitate towards something else whenever I'm buying something new. I'll try to get one before the handle update though.

And the Autonomy has always been at the top of my "want list", but I can't 'legally' carry it, so i've been reluctant to spend the money for it.

The Rubicon (especially the original). Always loved the look and general "absurdity" if you will of the knife and there is just something about it that turns my crank. But I just don't need something that beefy, especially for the price. Not harping on the price, just saying it would be more of a pleasure thing for me than a needed use thing so I can live without it.

The Ouroborus. I think it looks like a fantastic design and checks a lot of boxes for me but I just can't past the price point. One glance at one of my Delicas is all it takes to cause me to shrug my shoulders and not place the order.

Techno. Concerned blade might be too thick /too long (2.5" legal limit). The more I use my DF2 the more I like it, so less likely to pull the Techno trigger.

The Mantra 1. It has a blade shaped like a Delica, just a little larger, and no finger choil. Just sweet, sweet cutting edge back to the handle. These are the attributes that draw me to it.

I didn't buy one because: metal handle, framelock, and non-stainless blade.

The one I regret waiting so long to buy was Yojimbo 2 (I kept hoping for a sprint), I'm very happy I broke down and got the s30v version. It hasn't left my pocket for more than a day or two since I bought it.

The one that gets kicked to the bottom of the list the most often is the Assist. I really want one for the car, but I keep finding others that I have to have first, so it gets pushed back. The ZDP delica is another one I have every intention of buying but i can't get to yet. They are at the back of my "to buy" list behind the 40th Anniv. native, the Maxamet Native, and the Jazz Delica in Hap40. That's well over half of my knife budget already. Then I want the karahawk, the lil nilakka, and caly3, carribean...... Too much to choose from is a good problem to have.

The Tusk.....I'm just not going to use that marlin spike.

I would have jumped in with the Karahawk (as I have an original Karambit) but the new blacked-out variant is super nice

All of the fixed blades aren't for me because I don't really DO fixed blades....My idea of bushcraft is staying in a hotel without wifi. :D
Warhammer 40000 is- basically- Lord Of The Rings on a cocktail of every drug known to man and genuine lunar dust, stuck in a blender with Alien, Mechwarrior, Dune, Starship Troopers, Fahrenheit 451 and Star Wars, bathed in blood, turned up to eleventy billion, set on fire, and catapulted off into space screaming "WAAAGH!" and waving a chainsaw sword- without the happy ending.

Para 3. It seemed awesome, but I never use my Para 2 because it always pinches me, and I know it would do the same. Also, the lanyard hole shouldn't be quite so big, and then also there would be room to move the clip back a tad - not much - a tad. I don't like those insane deep pocket clips I see everywhere, but the Para 3 is too far out of the pocket for it's size.
- best wishes, Jazz.
