Maybe I'm being sensitive here but I don't understand why some seem so against the idea. 'Shave a few inches off of a regular manix', 'get a native, it's close enough'.
I mean if Spyderco doesn't think there's a demand for it, or if it's too much effort to pull off that's one thing. But barring that... 'shave a few inches off a regular Manix'? By that logic, why make a para3 (the very popular para3) after all you could just shave a few inches off the blade and handle of a para2. Same difference right? Why would anyone bother buying a para 3? Why dont they just buy a Native? It's pretty close to Para 3, sure the lock is different and so is the blade, but it IS close. Right?
Sorry if that comes across a little salty
but I hope you understand where I'm coming from, I get not everyones into the idea, but why shoot it down, or tell them what they really need is something else?
(Also I hope Vivi gets more Manix XL sprints too
I am with you on this one. A 3 inch CBBL
Manix would be a great daily user and a nice platform for future sprints.
i think it would be a great knife to scale down a bit, but i think it would be too close to the native to be worth the production for spyderco. i don’t think people are saying it’s a bad idea. they are just trying to help you see if something that already exists could fit what you are looking for.
The native doesn't have the CBBL. That's a primary criteria for me.
I agree with Marius, Matt, and Tom.
If the Native came as a CBBL, it'd probably be my favorite or at least most carried knife. That is, until a more awesome 3" CBBL knife came around.
