I watch IG and belong to 3 of the FB groups dedicated to Spyderco. I know a lot of people watch this forum but I'm pretty sure a lot more are seeing all the different posts on IG and FB. Plenty of people are aware that this is dropping on Friday.steelcity16 wrote: ↑Wed Aug 26, 2020 1:34 pmSharp Guy wrote: ↑Wed Aug 26, 2020 12:15 pmI'm kind of surprised there hasn't been more hype for this one. Not sure but maybe because this one's coming so soon after the LW dropped people are a little less enthusiastic about it? We'll see how it goes when they go on sale Friday but I think it'll be fairly easy to get one if put a little effort into it
I feel like the main cast on this forum lately (myself included) have been trying to keep the hype to a minimum in these threads as the date approaches to slide the thread back into page 2 and beyond so the unscrupulous flippers randomly browsing the forum don't know or forget about the drop in order improve our odds of actually getting one. Even on the day of most drops people haven't been bumping the thread up until a few minutes before. I didn't think the Native LW was hyped too much and it sold out in ~3 minutes. I don't see this one lasting much more than that given the limited quantity and the Native being an iconic model and the first and only 4V G10 Native. So if by fairly easy you mean you have a leisurely 3 minutes to get your order in rather than 30 seconds, then perhaps. Good luck to all on Friday! I already have a meeting on my work calendar to prevent someone from scheduling an actual meeting. Gotta focus!
When I say fairly easy I mean I don't think it'll sell out as fast as the PM2 did. I'm aware that the run was much smaller but I still think this can be had fairly easily as long as those who want it have their ducks in a row.
