He actually came to me wanting to look through my collection for a new knife - specifically for something small, slim, and really light that he could carry in his lightweight shorts. Alas, turns out he doesn't like backlocks, which rules out most of the small frn spydie lightweights (para3 lw was bigger than he wanted).
So I guess my point is, there's a gap in the spydie lineup that could be filled by something like a lil native lightweight comp lock, or a mini Manix lightweight.
Am I missing any other small non-backlock lightweight spydercos??
I really think this is the way to go, if you can convince him to try. Just judging from my own friends that are slightly knife interested, both the back lock and the Spyderco aesthetics isn't something that intuitively appeals to them. And it's often something that has to be experienced before they understand the beauty that lies beneath.
Yes. Something in that under 2-2.5 oz range seems to be the size he wants. Something for around the house in basketball shorts that won't flop around in his pocket. A chap, a dfly, or a lil native with frn AND a comp lock would be perfect.Wartstein wrote: ↑Thu Sep 24, 2020 3:33 am
I thought of the Ambitious too already... but I am afraid both this and the Alcyone are not light enough for him, since the Lil Native comp. lock is not either... sounds like what he'd want is something like a DFly or Chap FRN, but with liner, comp. or CBB- lock...
Maybe even a fictional comp. lock Native LW or comp.lock Delica, since both have a slightly smaller footprint than the Para 3 LW (which is "too large" for him) and are a tad lighter?
Again, tough one...
Hallelujah!!! I never thought I would ever hear Brother BLOKE singing the praises of a full sized, GOLDEN, CO made flagship Spyderco model !!! I wish you were right here in front of me Brother BLOKE I would give you a serious "HIGH FIVE"
Haha! The shoe is on the other foot now, isn't it missy! Yours is the dilemma that we gentleman have been trying to deal with since... since...
