UKPK S110V Drop Point?

Postby Knifewing » Mon Mar 26, 2018 11:11 am

I've been eyeing the navy UKPK with S110V blade, But before picking one up I wanted to ask if anyone knows if Spyderco has any plans to bring out a drop point version in that steel. I much prefer that blade shape, which was offered on past UKPKs, and would wait for it if it's ever going to be produced.

If they did produce it, I'd buy one, but honestly the current (leaf) blade is fantastic. If you're on the fence, just buy one--you won't be disappointed.

Would love to see a drop point as well as a wharncliffe (like the orange urban). Not sure how likely either will be unfortunately.

+1
I've been close to pulling the trigger on the drop point with BD-1 model. With s110v in a drop point, there would be one in my pocket. I'm just drawn more to the svelte drop point over the leaf shape.

I know BD-1 is no slouch of a steel, but there are too many other great choices available begging for me to empty my wallet on.

No plans at this time. I can mention it. I like drop points, but the market seems to prefer leaf blades.

It really is. I don't think I've bought another knife since I got my UKPK S110V. (But I've sold many others! :eek: )

The UKPK is indeed a nice knife.

Excellent size, not much weight. Hardly gets noticed until needed.

Gotta love the leaf shape.

Must admit, that Im happy with my leaf shape UKPK and wouldnt buy a drop point version.

I like drop points on some Spyderco knives - fixed and folders - but no on the UKPK.

(Looked at the Moran drop point - still bought the trailing point :) ).

Now a PM2 wharnie on the other hand!! :D
(Could buy a PM3 of course but wouldnt be the same as the below beauty).
