I am not a lefty, but would totally support the lockback-version-idea!! For one it's my favorite and really the same for lefties and righties...
In the meantime, try the Byrd Cara Cara 2. I've been carrying one for a few weeks and it's held up great.pantagana23 wrote: ↑Tue Jun 04, 2019 10:07 amOne thing I appreciated most about value folders line was the design, going from the handle shape, to blade being completely usable (no half finger choil - not a fan of this unless the knife is really short, and even then you need usable blade length more than ever).
Looking at Ambitious, Persistence, Efficient, Tenacious and Resilience, IMO all have a design to drool at.
For years I was waiting and hoping a lefty sprint run would come up, or perhaps a lockback version of these, making it usable for me.
My questions would be to lefties here first (as you would be potential buyers of these), would you be interested in lefty linerlock or lockback version if it came up?
Depending on you response, my question to the guys in Spyderco would be if this would be feasible (please say yes ).
Thank you for your time.
Left handers, please support!
i am the same. i am left handed mostly. i have grown up using liner locks (right handed) and many other types and now i have many more types of locks. i learned how to use the lock left handed and never had an issue before. i have never owned a dedicated left hand knife so i dont know, but like i said i have never had an issue.spyderg wrote: ↑Tue Jun 04, 2019 7:11 pmAs a lefty, I’ve never had any issue using a “right handed” lock. As long as I can carry left tip up I’m good. Having said that, I do own a couple “left handed” knives and like the idea of more knives in general,lol! Always interested in a good knife from Spyderco and agree that expanding the value line up is a good idea.
I don't really care if it's budget line or not, the design of budget line knives is why I'm asking this.Doc Dan wrote: ↑Tue Jun 04, 2019 9:18 pmI know it is not a budget knife, but here is the king of lefty knives:
