Spyderco 2018 Production Sample – Respect

Postby Mr Blonde » Fri Mar 09, 2018 2:40 pm

If one thing was hard for me to do after last year’s meet, it was not being able to share photos and info of my favorite design at the 2017 meet. It’s called the Respect now, which is an awesome name for an awesome blade. Mind you, this production sample still has a prototyped polymer handle, it will look and function better with the actual contoured G10 handle. I like the blend of old-school design and new school materials. I like bowies for their historical background and visual design. I might just try to attack our pile of cardboard for recycling with this knife though, just to get some actual use out of this knife. My suburban environment and lack of bushcrafting hobby doesn’t really demand a knife like this. But still, I will get me some respect for sure!

It's a nice blade alright, but i still take my Von Tempsky over it :) I don't know if you saw it at the meet Wouter? Anyway it is THE Bowie as far as i am concerned.

Spyderco 2018 Production Sample - ClipiTool Rescue

Postby Mr Blonde » Fri Mar 09, 2018 2:55 pm

I’ll admit I never really took to the first series of all-steel smaller clipitools. They were heavy for their size and offered few tools. I might have to adjust that opinion for this design. The ClipiTool feels like a regular EDC folder, but it also happens to have a few extra tools to go with it. The blade is just like any other Spyderco we like; full flat grind, forefinger choil, proper G-10, properly engaging linerlock etc.. The tools also open one-handed. The rescue hook, like the blade, is supported by a linerlock. The overall package is very thin, making it more of an EDC knife/tool combo. I hope this concept does well for Spyderco, with further development I’m hoping to see lefty-friendly tool/blade opening.

Spyderco 2018 Production Sample - ClipiTool Standard

Postby Mr Blonde » Fri Mar 09, 2018 3:24 pm

The ClipiTool Standard is very similar to the ClipiTool Rescue, but with a different tool selection. The tools on this variant don’t lock, but the ‘slipit-action’ was solid. The tools are vey easy to access, a lot easier than many other pocket tools out there. It should be priced well too. If I recall correctly, it should have an MSRP below $100.

Spyderco 2018 Production Sample - Zoomer

Postby Mr Blonde » Fri Mar 09, 2018 3:42 pm

Time for the last new knife post in my Spyderco Amsterdam Meet Report 2018! It’s always very cool to see the Spyderco Amsterdam Meets creating a little buzz for new Spyderco designs. But to have the meets help create a new Spyderco collaboration, now that’s a different type of cool. I’m proud to finally show these images of a fellow Dutchman and knife designer, the Zoomer!

I had to do a double take at the smooth handle, amazing how they can machine G-10 this smooth and this consistently. Equally impressive was the hamaguri grind with zero edge though. This knife will be shipped with an elaborate sheath with accessory pockets and a dangling loop for carry. It will be quite the package!

Wow. Thanks, Mr Blonde. Always look forward to your after meet photos and comments. I am very interested in the Clipitool Rescue. One of my nephews is a cop in Colorado and I have been looking at the Rescue knives as a gift for him. This one may be the best, given his work.

The Jonathan McNees design was another Spyderco surprise for me. The extremely small folder echoes small Spyderco collaborations in the past like the toad. It’s a size-class smaller than, say, a Dragonfly. The McNees design, size-wise, is more in the Ladybug range. The ergos were surprisingly good and even after a first-time pick-up I could open and close it one-handed quite easily. A cool design, I like the stippling as well.

I don't mean to highjack the thread by any means, and can edit the post if necessary.

This is a video (not mine) of Eric going over many of the knives shown in this thread, though it's from the IWA Outdoor Classics show in Germany. Just thought some would be interested to see.

The Alistair Phillips is an exceptional design! Sound likes it is being called the "Redback Spyder"!

Love the looks of the Alistair Phillips “Redback” the most! Hope it’s a successful one for Spyderco so they would entertain the idea of making a mini version with a blade less than 3” to be legal in more locations..
