Didn't they do a Sprint Run of that FB03 fixed blade LUM model? The original was done in AUS-8 and I believe that the Sprint Run was done in VG-10.
Mr Janich I truly believe that ROOKIE model was probably the most perfect sized and proportioned EDC type folders that Spyderco ever made in my opinion. I'm surprised that Rookie didn't become a permanent model like the Delica, Endura or POLICE.
There were three FB03s that I am aware of. Black micarta, burgundy micarta and black/green G10.JD Spydo wrote: ↑Mon Sep 21, 2020 11:11 pmDidn't they do a Sprint Run of that FB03 fixed blade LUM model? The original was done in AUS-8 and I believe that the Sprint Run was done in VG-10.
I had two Dyads even more rare and forgotten than that Micro Dyad>> I had a Burgundy and a Blue-Green ( or Teal) both Dyad Jr C-39 models. I got extremely desperate about 10 years ago and sold them. I got a pretty lofty price as well. But I wish I had those two colored Dyad Juniors back instead though.
That Ti Salsa was the only Salsa with ATS-34 blade steel. And the Titanium handle was superb on that one.
I really liked that Ocelot model but there was one minor problem that never got fixed with the original OCELOT. Those "paw prints" on the handle/scales ( deep recessed holes in the handle) did not serve well. Because I used an OCELOT one day to field dress some small game animals ( I believe it was some cottontail rabbits). Within a day that knife got to stinking so bad and then I figured out what the problem was. Some of the guts, blood and other residue from the rabbits had gotten trapped in those recessed paw prints and I had to soak it overnight in a strong concentration of DAWN dish soap to get all of it out.
I've thought for years that the MOUSE, SPOT and SPUR models would have made great Sprint Runs for some of Spyderco's older small bladed models. Maybe someday ??
