The knife is already listed on Spydercos homepage: Weight 2.7 indeed.
Several of the weights stated in the Amsterdam thread were too low by a lot. Could be a malfunction of Wouters scale?!
Yeah I'm not exactly sure why they decided to use black scales for the S5LW. I have a lot of grey knives these day too and I'm necessarily looking for another. But, if it was a shade or two darker or lighter than the Chap FRN (just to make it different) I would've probably bought one. As it is I'll probably pass. A few months ago I was in regardless but I'm no longer buying knives with reckless abandon. Sal mentioned the FRN version might be available for exclusives. So maybe one will come along that I can't live without.
I didn't say I wasn't going to buy any more knives. I just don't need to have every new model or all the variations of the models I like. I was getting close to 100 knives. It was getting overwhelming and a bit excessive. I still have knives that I haven't even carried or used yet. I've also found something else to spend money on and I can't afford to do both. So I'm content enjoying what I already have.
same here, though I'll probably get it elsewhere.
