Paid $155 for the Techno 1, are these upgrades worth the extra $60?

Maybe that was years ago, they have the same MSRP today. Try and find a Techno for that $155 today. $215 MAP.

I tried the first one twice and just didn’t like it, but had nothing to do with the blade shape. Had to do with the action, or lack there of. If this one is no better, will not make the mistake of picking this one up. Waiting to see what folks think and how it compares to them.

Good point. Either way, the blade shape in the stock picture looks great, and I love the Techno 1, so I will be buying this one.

3. knife is thinner and lighter overall


The Techno 2 is actually the same or Thicker than original Techno. Scales are much thicker, negating the thinner blade.

It appears from the video that Eric thinks the 2 is lighter. Guess we will have to wait and see

I much prefer the Techno's blade shape and jimping.
But, I prefer the stand offs and the thinner blade of the Techno2...

Does anyone make standoffs for the O.G.Techno?

Oh, I also feel that taking away the lockbar insert is a huge step backwards in quality.

“This model will be replaced by the second-generation Techno 2, which is currently being manufactured in Taiwan and should be available later this summer.”

From the lastest Spyderco Byte.

There seems to be a lot of confusion floating around about this...

The original Techno had a carburized lock face. It was basically ‘heat treated’ similar to the way a Sebenza is done. This is not the same as carbidizing.

Many of the Taichung framelocks have been carburized, to good effect evidently, as lockup issues are nearly unheard of on the models that have had it. Brad confirmed that the Southard received the treatment, and someone (can’t recall who, it was either Marcin or someone from Spyderco) confirmed that the Techno and Slysz Bowie were done the same way.

This has come up before when other Taichung Ti framelocks have been released, it’s how we originally heard whether the Bowie was carburized. There’s zero reason to think that this Techno 2 is being done any differently. People are acting like the Techno has a stainless interface and that Spyderco has moved away from it on the Techno 2, when in all likelihood, they’re just doing it the same way the previous model was done since that has worked out so well.

Wasn't it confirmed that Spyderco has never carburized or carbidized their lock faces on any of their knives?

Hello folks, the Techno 2 is already available in Taiwan (where it's manufactured)!
I just got one yesterday and have been playing with it for a while. Here's a video overviewing some of its features:

My dang leg won't stop twitching in anticipation. I'm a junky for Slysz designs but on a beer budget...
