Police 4 LW... I don’t know if saving is the right term though... property taxes are paid, so now it’s more like waiting to do income taxes and see what happens there.
The planter, the farmer, the mechanic, and the laborer... form the great body of the people of the United States, they are the bone and sinew of the country men who love liberty and desire nothing but equal rights and equal laws. - Andrew Jackson

When I'm not buying Spydies, I'm buying cans of Baked Beans. Three meals a day. ;-)

The only ones I’m really waiting for are 1)Another run of Red (garnet) 20cv Manix 2s from DLT...really hope they do it with more available 2) Shaman with micarta in OD green or blue denim 3) Sage 5 LW variants in colors I like and cool stainless steel options. Who knows if one or two will ever come, or if I’ll act fast enough for number 1, assuming they do it.

I can't believe the number of orange knives coming out. I realize that it's color coded to the steel but if you aren't a fan of orange scales your options from this reveal get narrowed down in a hurry.

My second Spyderco Province in 4V. The second one, I am going to fiddle with the handles. Might have aftermarket green micarta grips made for it to match my Chris Reeves Green Beret fixed blade.
Let us know what you find with the scales. I found a guy who could custom make micarta scales for me but he would have to pin them to make them fit perfect. I wish Spyderco offered some aftermarket micarta scales for the Province that are removable and contoured like the stock G10.

Hey Nap, sorry to here, mate and I hope better days are around the next corner for you, mate.

I count my blessings every day and genuinely consider my self very fortunate to be in a position to be able to buy things I don’t need. I know many, many people struggle to make ends meet, let alone have money for flash pocket knives or flash anything for that matter. I’ve been in the same position in the past. I’m no stranger to adversity and I can’t help but have at very least a little empathy for those less fortunate.

Hang in, Nap! There’ll be better days ahead mate, and every dark cloud has a silver lining. ;)
I'm OK Bloke. I just keep putting one foot in front of the other. :D

I can certainly recommend the DragonFly!
Talk about a little POWERHOUSE.
Mine is in HAP40, and I love it.

I will say this about Orange G10 .... If you use Rit "DyeMore" in cherry red, you can very easily change Orange to Burgundy / Maroon / Dark Purple just based on the amount of time.... Clean your g10 really well, and make sure to use the "DyeMore" not the powder, and if you don't like it, acetone for a few hours, then give it a bath in the rit-dye-remover for 20 minutes.... both the dyemore and remover can be found at hobby-lobby or a bazillion places online... I have the PM2 and Para3 Rex45, I've dyed one and left one, it honestly grows on you.... But even if you hate it, the steel, ohhh the steel is so worth dying or swaping scales...

If you’re okay with bonded scales, blind pins work well. I’ve done this on some scales I made for Mule Team blades. I used pins cut from #10 stainless steel sheet metal screws and G Flex epoxy. Bonded scales prevent rust from growing behind the scale slabs.

Thank you for the comment! I'm handy but I'll leave the knife mod to a bladesmith. This is probably one of if not the best non custom knife that I own and I'd fudge it up. :o

Grimsmo/Spyderco collaboration on a Norseman. This one is just wishful thinking on my part. I really want a Norseman with a Spydie hole! :D

Very true. I don’t do anything orange, ever, so that makes it difficult with this. That evil entity in the upstate of South Carolina ruined orange for me long ago.
