PE Autonomy and/or other knives featuring the Plunge Lock?

Postby Evil D » Fri Oct 07, 2016 9:42 pm

Any chance we'll see any of that? I really like the Autonomy, I would love to see one in PE (other than H1). I'm also really interested in the Plunge Lock, it appears to be a really strong lock design and I like how the button works as both the firing and unlocking action.

Ultimately I would love to see something like the Yojimbo 2 with this lock, but a PE version of the Autonomy in a steel that holds an edge better than PE/H1 would be pretty sweet too. I can always profile the tip to be pointier.

I'd probably carry my Autonomy more if it was a PE, I'm mean its a pretty wicked cutter with the SE and would have bought no matter what but I think I would carry it more in PE. I've come close to pulling the trigger on the orange one a couple of times now but just don't think I would carry it much and with all these great pieces dropping lately it just doesn't make sense right now. I'd definitely buy a PE though especially if it came in Cruwear or CTS-XHP, how about a blue with S110V.

I'd love to see that. Even more so if they switched the steel to S30V, S35VN, CTS-XHP, 154CM, or even BD-1.

Almost picked up an Autonomy, but it is hard to imagine any purpose for it besides cutting restraints. EMT shears (~$5.00) will do that job really well, too :P

Just kidding, the Autonomy (Embassy and Citadel, also) is a well designed auto. The Plunge Lock is a great mechanism, similar to one used on another auto I used to own. I actually traded my BM AFO (Gen 1..not the new one) for the Millie I carry now. Great trade, have never looked back.

Now, if this became available in a combo-edge w/ CTS-XHP or CRU WEAR? I'd be sold entirely :D

I think a PE Citadel or Embassy might be the closest you'll get for a while Evil, unfortunately. I fully agree with you, I love the designs Spyderco has put out in the Auto category.

I really like the idea of a S110V / blue handle autonomy. Another good idea, an Endura in LC200N w/zome Black & yellow
