I received my first K390 last week...I believe it was the Delica. I pre-ordered the Dragonfly but still no words on when it will shipped. Does this K390 steel comes in other knives?
Wow you have quite a collection! Are they all Spyderco? Do you use or collect? It’s quite addicting really. I’m fighting the urge to hoard!
Nice score on the Delica! These will be some of the best performing ‘Endura family’ Seki knives that have been made so far, IMHO.
K390 first came out in the Pingo, Sal had made for the Edgematters forum members in the UK. I actually carried that as my EDC while I was travelling in Ireland and the UK. Ended up losing it at the KL airport in Malaysia.
Then there was the G10 Police 4 and the Urban.
BentoBoxShop still have their K390 PM2 and Para 3s with Ranger Green scales available.
And now the Seki Endura family line we’ve been eagerly awaiting...
Um, I don’t really collect knives, LOL.
I’ve just somehow ended up with a bunch of them ‘cause I like learning about the history of edged tools, and different historical and cultural patterns, and metallurgy, and using nice knives at work, and for hunting and cooking and camping.
Regarding modern folders I’m pretty much ‘rusted on’ to Spyderco designs exclusively, but the traditional knives and regional patterns and kitchen knives and fixed blades are by all sorts of other makers.
I’ll be interested to hear how you like that Delica and Dragonfly once you’ve had a chance to use them a bit. You really got some good ones there.
