I have absolutely no doubt Spyderco will continue to come up with a metric ton of cool knives. But history would indicate that the releases tend to be a little sporadic. Spyderco got tired of that sporadic nature, and came up with the reveal system. And now the reveals are sporadic.Doeswhateveraspidercan wrote: ↑Tue Sep 10, 2019 9:00 amAww have a little faith, one thing I have noticed during dry spells Spyderco has been working up major bursts of interesting releases.dj moonbat wrote: ↑Tue Sep 10, 2019 7:47 amI figure the odds are approaching zero that 2019 will actually see four reveals. I'm sure it seemed like a can't-miss way to impose some order on the production pipeline when they came up with it. But if your production process is too difficult to predict with certainty, you can't just create that certainty by reporting on the uncertainty more often.
Now mind you as far as I am concerned the Z Cut knives are a completely different category and while there are many different types I myself speaking only for me consider them as one for various reasons so I do not see them impeding the last reveal.
This year we have seen some pretty good surprise releases from DLT and others and they have tended to be close on each others heals, too close making them hard to afford for some, to few making them unobtainable by others.
Strange year. Still Think they will pull in the final reveal but may be delayed in production of said revealed items into 2020 despite best intentions. Then again who knows 2019 has been the year of the burst mode.
