My wife and I went to a wedding in [beautiful] Estes Park, Colorado a couple years ago, and I'm still kicking myself for not stopping by Spyderco on our way back to the airport in Denver. I thought we didn't have enough time, but then we spent hours waiting for our flight anyway.Stuart Ackerman wrote:Next time I am gonna fly over and camp outside the Spyderco building...
when you're are in the collector club program you have to find a dealer who's willing to receive the knives and sell them to you.Bladekeeper wrote: As for the collectors club editions do you have to be a member and have a club number to buy those ?.
And is the CC open to new members or is it closed .
As long as the new members contribute that's fine by me. AFAIK, you didn't even have to be a forum member to locate and use the discount code or release info.Bladekeeper wrote:With all the extra joining of those members that clearly wanted to grab and run .
After making as much noise as possible I hope I'm wrong though.
I don't see why anyone had to join the forum to buy the forum knife. The Spyderco online store is separate; one can buy the knife online without signing up for the forum. I presume there was no forum member check when ordering by phone. So those that just joined didn't do so in order to buy a knife unless they were confused about the procedure. When the buying was in process there were around 200 forum members and 700 guests viewing the forum. It wouldn't be a surprise to find that more non-members than members bought these.Bladekeeper wrote: With all the extra joining of those members that clearly wanted to grab and run .
Are you sure about that? I thought that some dealers just joined the Collectors Club so they could get the dealer exclusive that normally don't go to every dealer.Senate wrote:when you're are in the collector club program you have to find a dealer who's willing to receive the knives and sell them to you.
the non allocated knives from the CC are numbered and sent to dealers anyway, don't know how they are chosen in this case. probably they were handling this CC number before the member quit and decided to keep receiving the knives. that's how, without being a CC member, you can buy a few CC knives from some dealers. we're talking very few knives here. when i was in the program there were less than 10 spots available IIRC.
to know if there's a sport available you got to call spyderco.
Shocked to say the least ........if it were any other LE it would of lasted at least 3 or 4 days.Philo Beddoe wrote:Why would you be "shocked"? Did you think they would not sell?
Also where did you get the "700" number at? Or are you just making that up? IMO I think the number was 500 made but that's just a guess.
I like what you just said ...........makes good sense and its true.OldSarSwmr wrote:I missed out too. I was working and by the time I could get to my computer, they were all gone. Oh well, guess it wasn't meant to be. I can't be upset about it though, Spyderco has so many great knives coming out something else will help scratch that itch.
Congrats to all my fellow forumites that got one, can't wait to see all the pictures.
