Sal, what is planned for release in the next six months?
I was wondering what Spyderco has lined up for release in the next six months. I know nothing is carved in stone and delays happen.
Anxiously waiting for a Military Jr.
Yeah, I could go for a Military Jr. also<img src="wink.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle>
Count me in. Plain edge plz.
This is a list of what is scheduled for the coming months. Sal can add more I'm sure when he returns (outta the office for a couple of weeks).
C63 James Keating Chinook~ this fall
C10TR Endura Trainer Model~ this fall
C11TR Delica Trainer Model~ this fall
C53 Peter Herbst~ late this year, early next
C60 Massad Ayoob~ late this year, early next
C65 Bob Lum Chinese Folder~ this fall
C68 Bram Frank Gunting~ this fall
C68 Bram Frank Gunting Trainer~ this fall
FB02 Bill Moran Drop Point~ this fall
TC07S Police Model Tie CLIPIT~ in, avail.
Can't offer an EXACT date as all new models go through QC first, some are numbered and then have to ship. I'll post a more detailed time line when I get it.
Joyce thanks for that info! I'm saving my pennies in anticipation.... <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle>
Vesuvius, Temperence, Meerkat? <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle>
The Herbst, by the way, will be a re-introduction. It's the Spyderco that The Wife picked out when she finally, after 30 years as a "mixed marriage," (knife-person, non-knife person) admitted that it just wouldn't do for the wife of a knife dealer to open a box with her car keys!
Good tools to sustain life, or at least make life more convenient
Thanks for the reply. Always nice to know what is planned for release in the next few months.
I'm going to hold my breath until a Temperence release date is announced.
Starting ... now
Okay okay. I mean, starting ... now.
I think Joe passed out...
Thanks for the info.
Please please please Sal, Joyce and the rest of the Spyderfolk, include the Meerkat in the fall-lineup (I love them little knives)
Meerkat, Vesuvius & both Lil' Temperance pcs schedule for early 2001.
*droool!* <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle> Can't wait to get my paws on the FB02!
"Both" temperences? What'd I miss? Just different handle materials, or something more substantive like blade grinds or shapes?
Blade shapes Joe. There is the drop point similar to the Calypso Jr, which has caught your fancy, and also a clip point a bit like the Chinook. Both flat grind. I think James has pictures of both of them, if not on his Spyderco page then on his page of pics from Blade.
Don't worry that the world might end tomorrow, in Australia it's tomorrow already.
I think there are three Temperances:
1. Temperance Jr. Folder (swept point)
2. Temperance Jr. Fixed Blade
3. Temperance Folder (drop point)
Oh yah! It's on James' site, I remember that clip point version now. The one that looks like a rhino. Thanks Clay
Nice to see the release dates. I am anxiously awaiting the droppoint Moran!
Me too! <img src="wink.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle>
I'll be waiting for the Meerkat. I saw it on Jim's site, gotta have one!
