Not a huge fan of the jade but maybe this is the one that gets teeth?
Teeth you say? Like this? :cool:

That hollow grind with m4 is such a perfect combination.

Ditto.
Luckily, we have a wide range of steel and handle color combinations from spyderco to choose from, so it might not come to that but yes, if its a steel/knife I want, it can be a Hello Kitty model for all I care.

Speaking of M4 ...

Dang. I literally just ordered a yo2 last night(brown s90v). If not for that, this would be a must have for me.
I think that’s the nicer one.

I may end up selling my DLC/brown version, I haven't used or carried it one time. It's a bummer because I really wanted DLC but the mods I do to the blade would be ruined if I grind on it.

This might finally get a yojimbo in my hands... not fussed about the Jade, but M4 is a favourite of mine.

I’ve always thought the natural g10 looks waaaay better in person rather than in pictures. DLT exclusive PM2 and Saint Nick’s Para 3 have priority or this would be a contender this month.

My jade para 3 feels just like my other para 3’s, so I’d say it’s the typical peel ply. I don’t imagine they’ve changed the texture between this and the other BHQ exclusives. The pictures seem to confirm the scales are just like their para 3 exclusive imo.

You mean do they have the same texture as the other G-10 models? If so yes. Only difference I noticed is the color. (I have the Jade Para 2 and Native)

I really don't get all the hate for the jade G10. We've had several threads asking for white FRN so people can dye them, this is essentially the same thing. It'll take just about any color dye.
Hate?
I get the impression, that the jade Spydercos sell like hotcakes.
Many rave about them - just look at this very thread ;)

Some of the nay sayers in this thread dont like the design of the Yo or that the blade is not DLC. That hardly is jade hate though.

I might be mistaken but its my impression that jade is popular.
Jade Spydercos gets snapped up VERY fast on for example BF.

Jade is popular, but not as much anymore I don't think since there have been so many of them and the exclusivity factor has worn off. I still LOVE it with DLC, but it's pretty meh with a normal satin blade to me these days. Going to pass on this one. For reference I have the Jade DLC Manix and Jade Satin Native (wish it was DLC), and I am kicking myself for not grabbing the Jade DLC Para 3 since that was before I "discovered" how great the Para 3 was. I would definitely buy a Jade DLC Military and Jade DLC Native if they rerun those in DLC.

My hope is they continue the Jade into the Shaman, Manix XL, and Manix Backlock and offer DLC M4 on all of them. Then stick with DLC M4 and put it into the Manix LW and Native LW with either White FRN or the crystal clear FRCP shown on the Manix LW pre-production sample years ago.
