So why was one on ACK before the reveal?

I was wondering the same...

Anyhow, I'm glad to see St.Nicks continuing this awesome series. The native lw is not for me, but it looks great. I'm psyched for the many of you that love this model and will now get to experience the awesomeness that is spyderco's 4v!

Pretty obvious there was a snake in the system...just leave it at that and continue on.

Another great offering by St Nicks for people into this model!! Can't beat 4V for this price!

People will be stealing twenties out of their Grandma's purse for one of these. :eek: With only 600 available, I'm not even going to try to get one unless they don't sell out.

Maybe the one on ACK belonged to a Collector's Club member? I thought the all variants members got one before it was shipped to retail. I could be wrong.
Used to be JR in CT with a much earlier join date. :rolleyes: :spyder: Native in 440v was my gateway Spyderco! :spyder: Friends call me Jim. As do my enemies.

Agreed! Might be the best deal of the summer!

The knives they had at ACK didn’t have collectors club numbers, which was the odd part.

None the less, I’m not sure if I’ll try for one of these or not. Would be a good candidate for a blade swap. DLC 4V in Fluted CF would be sweet!!

Hey, I didn't see any mention of it on their website, where did you see the "only 600 available"

Gotta find yourself a dlc backspacer too! The g10 version will have one like bhq’s m4 did. If you can wait that is.

FYI, they were posted on ACK before the guys at St. Nicks had even seen photos of them, let alone had any in hand. :eek: Best to leave it alone since the threads were removed. Just wanted to vouch for the team at St. Nicks. They are my favorite Spyderco dealer by far and these 4V exclusives are my favorite exclusives. I just hope they listen to suggestions about doing a bunch of Seki 4V models! :D

It is only posted on their main page, for some odd reason.

Wow for $125 this is gonna fly. I'll try for one, most definitely. Also glad to see the one-per restriction from St Nick's.

I missed the shaman.

I am more interested in more variations of the native chief.

Im interested on this one though because its the lightweight version. I might have to try for one.

I also saw on their instagram comments when someone said "I need a para 3 lw in the same color" their response was "soon". That has me super excited!

Well, since we already saw the G10 version of this knife, I will wait and try for that one.
