Now "Jezabel" that's just not fair at all >>no!!! not even in the least!! Since I was dumb enough to trade my last 440V SE Military it's been like trying to climb Mt. Everest in the winter on the north side trying to get back my 440V SE MILLIE
Well PEACENT you and EVIL D I think may have the right idea for getting this ball rolling. We've all talked in the past on a couple of occasions about petitioning Spyderco for Spyderedged Sprint Runs and this might just be the one to kick it off with. But in one sense I wouldn't want it to be SE only because this model really shines in SE & PE both. But it might be the ticket to get it in the door for serious consideration.
Interesting! However I just don't seem to think that the C-60 Ayoob is all that big size-wise because I've been EDCing my M390 Military so long that when I carry one of my Ayoob models it seems like a medium sized folder to me.rangefinder wrote: ↑Sun Aug 12, 2018 2:59 pm
The Ayoob was a tip-down only model in the past. If a sprint run still supported tip-down carry, then I'd probably get one. I don't care if it also supports tip-up carry, just don't lose the tip-down carry option.
But I agree that a smaller model would probably sell better. Any knife that's 5+ inches closed is going to have limited appeal. There are a lot of people who just don't want to carry a knife that big. (And if they are OK with a knife that big, they probably already have a Police or Civilian -- or both.)
Hey Brother great to see you again at Spyderville!! The Sprint Run C-60 of 2011 did have a G-10 handle but I wish a newer Sprint Run would have a slightly thicker one. The G-10 handle sure added a lot of grip/purchase to it and I ended up with 3 of those and it really hurt me that they didn't offer the Sprint Run in SE >> because the original Ayoob in SE was a "Mega-Beast"
There are so many new Spyderco enthusiasts out there now that I doubt whether a Carbon Fiber, G-10 or even the original Almite handle would not make a great deal of difference as far as several of these newcomer Spyderco fans wanting an Ayoob model. I can't tell you how many people have tried to buy or trade for one of mine over the past 5 years especially. So there's no doubt to me as to whether or not the market is there because I firmly believe it is.
