Did anybody notice the 18K gold sprint Spyderco bead/lanyard?
Also not appearing in the catalog is the fluted CF Para2 sprint. I wonder if this means that production has been delayed further, or whether it was entirely too "sexy" to include in the catalog? Hmmmmm.
I think a fair number of sprints don't ever make it into the catlogs/supplements, so I'm not going to read any discouraging smoke signals here.
Thank you Kristi.

But it appears to be real. I handled a prototype at the Blade Show this spring. Eric said that he was not happy with the thickness of the scales on the prototype and wanted to thin them down before the release. As I recall, the prototype was similar in contour to the Millie fluted Ti scales - but made from CF, of course. I can't describe exactly how it felt in hand... but it was among the most comfortable handles I've ever experienced. The CF was warm and tactile with just the right amount of grip, but it didn't feel like it would rip your pockets up like a lot of textured G10. Great stuff - like I said: Drop-dead sexy.
I'm anxious to see what kind of steel they are including in this package. Would it be too much to hope for M4?
Thanks for the heads up. My wallet is gonna be a whole lot lighter after reading this.
The Knife Center already has some of the new models listed for pre-order. I ordered the Spy-DK and the Clipitool with the bottle opener. I thought the list prices on them were quite reasonable, and the KC discounted prices very nice, indeed. The Firefly, however, costs more than I would ever allow myself to spend on a single knife. Not sayin' it isn't worth it, though...
My Spydercos: (all plain edge)
Jester (Gray G-10 & Black FRN), Manbug (Black Lightweight & British Racing Green ZDP-189), Dragonfly (Green G-10), Dragonfly2 (Black, Orange, Yellow H-1, British Racing Green ZDP-189), Pingo (Black & Orange), Squeak (Black), Delica4 (Black), Salt1 (Yellow), Manix2 (Blue FRCP), Native (Black FRN S30V & Brown FRN CTS-XHP), Zulu, Rock Lobster, Balance (Stainless), Calypso Jr (Gray FRN), Double Bevel, Lava (Blue G-10)
Tusk looks great! Curious why such a small blade though?
Autonomy, H1 auto = instant winner!
More S90v & CF please.......
