I’m hoping we can get a bunch of support for an Emerson endura. I think that model has been deserving of a steel upgrade for quite a while. I would like to add to my collection...

You need the Bayou Shooter Endurance, that thing is awesome! I'm looking forward to the Stretch, myself.

Now that I've calmed down a little and realized I can't buy every knife that Syderco is putting out in 2018 (I do get exited) :D I'm in for a Hawkbill Dragonfly, Emerson Delica, and Lil Matriarch.
Carrying 3 knives is perfectly normal :D

Any ideas when these sprints are coming out ? I missed out on the super blue and certainly don’t want to miss out getting an endura in this sprint !

Best place to check is the "delivered and upcoming" releases thread. But not sure yet, other than sometime in '2018'.

Over the years my Emerson Endura has probably had more pocket time than anything in my rotation other than the Caly3. So thin, light, and fast out of the pocket with the Emerson opener and the FRN texture. It's also a bit of a study in compromise, with the saber grind giving it a strong piercing tip and thick Emerson wave hook, but really hurting the slicing ability for EDC tasks. Now that the Police 4 is dominating my rotation, I may finally try to re-profile the old VG-10 Endura Wave to a bit more of a slicer.

Having said all that (and knowing that this thread is pretty old), an Emerson Endura in a carbon steel would be a no-brainer for me.

Intrigued.

I'd definitely like to see more options for the Lil Matriarch!

PE Lil Matriarch would have me giddy.

A waved Delica would be cool.

Is there still a mold for an frn Cricket? I carry a Cricket from time to time.

I know folks want another Jester.

A PE Dragonhawk would also be appealing.

If we are talking about non frn then sign me up for a G10 R model.

Absolutely want to see a Jester in this and future Sprint runs...and back in standard production (with FRN...maybe VG-10, ZDP, and H1 FS Salt?!?)! PLEASE make this happen Sal!

+1 more for a Jester and the obvious PE Lil Matriarch.

Why no hype for the Stretch here?

I think we are assuming the Stretch will be included and are just naming other models we want as well.

I am in for a Stretch and a Delica like usual. :)

I think the Stretch 2 is already confirmed for the run, and of course, would be one of the models I would personally purchase!


Maybe it's sounding like other blade variations of the usual suspects are up for a possible run, like maybe there will be excess blade steel left...? So people are throwing out ideas for that possibility.


Along with the Lil Matriarch, all the mention of the Jester has me voting for that as well. I just bumped an old Jester Sprint thread, so anyone interested please chime in there as well! :spyder:

I already made my Stretch pre-order on KC
The first time I saw a Spyderco was the early 90s at a knife shop in a mall. I can still see the SpydieHoles through that glass display cabinet. My parents wouldn't buy any of them for me... so now I buy them all. :spyder:

I'd like a Vtoku Cricket or something else I could use like an Xacto cutting for my art.

Guys how do you think this VTOKU will compare to the super blue sprint.

I think most will find it very similar to super blue. They are not exactly the same but considering the broad spectrum of steels available today they are more similar than different.

I think that for those who missed out on the Super Blue sprints this should be very exciting.

Color me excited for this sprint run then. Still kicking myself for missing a chance of getting a super blue endura.
