I just posted this thread over on bladeforums, spyderco subforums...
After seeing STR's work on forumite Bell's Lava and Navigator2 here:
I knew I had to get the same.....except with burgundy micarta scales. I love the ergos on both knives but don't carry them that much b/c of their weight....I favor loose in slacks pocket carry for "work". So these babys arrived yesterday and I couldn't be happier than "a pig in slop".
Each knife has chunky 3mm micarta scales and 3mm Ti backspacer combined with STR's Ti low rider clips combine for two strong but lightweight "Lil' Big Knives" I can't really comment on their weights b/c I have no scale at the moment. These low rider clips are awesome, with just the right amount of tension :thumbup:
The SS Navigator2 had a slight amount of vertical blade play that has now been eliminated.... thanks much Steve, great job :thumbup:
The Navigator2 is in the middle of the "spine shot" photos; comparison pix are with a Spin and a camo Boker Subcomfolder; the lighting isn't the greatest for these pix but I was feeling "trigger happy" this evening
