    Man! You should have redacted that price, too! That's evidence of GTL (grand theft laguiole) right there. Congrats on that score!

    Thanks!
    It wasn't shipped to me, I am the third owner after Sal. My seller was kind enough and gave me the paper together with the knife... and I paid a bit more than 100.- USD ... but it was worth the deal!

    Thanks. Well, this thread certainly surpassed my expectations by leaps and bounds. Certainly not by means of my own. It's all about the enthusiasm and dedication of its participants, really.

    Special thanks to Reject for maintaining the list and smoothing out the bumps wherever they appear. I used to be able to check this thread several times a day. I haven't been able to lately, and I'm glad he's around trying to keep things in order and making calls where needed.

    Then there's a whole other category of thanks to the powerhouse players in this thread. Those who keep dishing out the challenges know who they are.

    Can't say it better!

    We need another category, for knives we can not show, due to anomalies in Spyderco's SKU-codes.
    Please tell me more about these anomalies. How many exist? How do you propose we bring them in?

    I can't tell you off-hand and who knows what the future brings At the moment we know from two in this thread (C55GP andC63GP). I suggest we make it easy: a separately shown column in the list, called "SKU-anomalies" ...

    Unless we're burdened by too many of these occurrences, I don't think we need to get too caught up by the SKU.

    The list would read as following:
    C63GP Chinook
    C63GP Chinook 2

    Forgive me if I'm not seeing the future complications that might arise from this simplification.

    The official tally would count these as two distinct models, and the game continues. With the way this worked, the Chinook could have been matched with a Chinook 2, and everyone would guffaw at these little tangles.

    Yep! Sounds ok.
    While the SKU may be the same, the description will define the difference in the models.

    Future complications? I am a faultman; I’ve been doing it for so long, that it is no longer what I do, but what I am. Others see a clear future; I follow Murphy and look for the things that can go wrong.

    Sorry about that Boss.

    It doesn’t mean that when someone puts up the first t-shirt that every size can be a new challenge after that.
    But will it relate to all different generations of Delica and Endura with the sample SKU?
    Will special editions with a basic SKU be considered a different model now?

    And there will be a heap more problems that it will most likely being up.

    But that has always been part of the game and part of the fun.

    And I know how much Peter1960 & IG-88 love controversies.

    “O” and is the Chinook 2 considered done or yet to come.

    Also, don't forget about the old numbering scheme used to use as 100x that overlap certain Cxx models.

    I was given the impression that SKU anomalies (like the Chinooks) are oversights by the folks at Spyderco and would have been done differently if they caught them there and then. That would be to say the Chinook 2 is distinctly a new model and not some sort of Chinook special edition. And yeah, let's consider the Chinook 2 done as it already showed up.

    All that being said, if the SKU matches, it's fair to play. And whether it's a distinct model (for record-keeping purposes), I defer to the more knowledgeable players in this thread.
