FYI - I saw it listed as in stock at KC. probably others as well, just thought I'd mention it.
I ordered mine and cant wait, love that blade!
I love the looks...and want one. I am going to try it out and see how it works for me as a lefty.
On the hunt for...
Ah man, I forgot about this one. Time for another trip to SFO.
Oh man! Held this one at a show. Beautiful!
How is "Des" pronounced?
Dess or Dez, or is the s silent?
Democracy is two wolves and a sheep voting on what to have for lunch. Freedom is a well-armed sheep contesting the vote.
Tolerance is the virtue of a man without conviction.
On the Spyderco web site for the Des Horn, one area says the scales are G10, one says Micarta. Which one is it?
The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants
Ah, that sweet Jugend-stil piece is there! I handled it in Amsterdam already, wonderful little cutter!
Even in times of peace a gentleman still keeps a sword by his side
I think I will be waiting on Gayle Bradley's AIR, if it ever comes out for my first wharnnie
Edit: unless peer pressure forces me to get a Yo 2 first...
Ordered the Des!!! And now the wait for the mail man is on

TBH, I was excited about this one until I read the blade length... Was hoping it would be longer.
Still might get it (and I do understand the rationale behind blade length in a gent's folder) but I'm itching for a nice long wharnie...
I can only imagine length would add width (or height I guess). Similar to the Lum series.
The Yojimbo2 is in the works! it's not huge either but with the lacking popularity of wharnies beggars can't be choosers I guess.
No offense to whoever takes the stock photos for Spyderco, but I would have no interest in this knife based on the picture. Mr Blonde's photos, on the other hand, elicit the exact opposite response: the immediate need to get this knife!
