I've been wanting to pick up a few UKPKs in G10 so I can re-scale them for Christmas presents. But they have been really difficult to find on the secondary market. (I know they are discontinued!) The auction site hasn't had any in months, although they have orange Urbans occasionally and sell a pretty reliable stream of titanium UKPKs.
I should have picked up more of them when they were on close out a couple of years ago. Oh, well.
I've been looking for other Spydies that are set up for easy modding (e.g., no nested liners, no pinned construction). There are a few in the current line up (e.g., Native V, Cat/Chicago, Budget Line), and quite a few discos... But I'm wanting some blades that have good steel - which rules out the Cat/Chicago and Budget Line - and don't cost an arm and a leg.
There are some Persians on closeout at a good price, but they look pinned - is this correct? The basic Lum G10 looks like an option, too, as it is on closeout several places. Any thoughts about other models to look at?
Sal, I miss the G10 UKPK and Urban!
