    Des Horn Discontinued?

    Is the Des Horn discontinued? Can anyone tell me?

    I see that they've just showed up at STP and if they're not going to be available in the future I want to grab a back up.

    I think Amazon also has some. I can't remember if they are in the 2014 catalog or not.

    It is not discontinued. I checked the Spyderco site, and the catalog lists it as well.

    Hi Mr TomAiello!


    Actually the Des Horn is not included on the 2014 Spyderco Catalog.

    It means it's officially discontinued.

    So if you really like it, grab a backup as soon as you can.
    Stay Sharp!

    I was also wondering if its appearance at Sierra meant official discontinuation this fall. ??

    Official "discontinued model list" usually coming out in November-December, so officially it is not discontinued. But I remember from the past there were some models, which showed up at deep discount and later were announced that they were discontinued.

    Or perhaps STP just had a couple of them, since the only Spyderco I see on their site is the Breeden Rescue.

    It's only cut when Kristi says it's cut in the annual thread.

    Des Horn is still "in production" until further notified .

    It has perfect F&F like you'd expect from Taichung Taiwan-made Spydercos. Not really my style but I got one and it's slick.

    I have one and it's become my favorite "dress up" knife. The fit and finish really is phenomenal.

    I think I'll pick up a spare from STP. For $90 with the current coupon it's a bargain.

    Usually showing up on the Sierra Trading Post site is not a good sign...

    I'll pick one up with my next 45% off coupon, which tends to be offered once or twice a month.

    Is there a trick to getting STP to send me 45% off coupons? For some reason I only ever receive the 25-35% off coupons. I have bought from them before but it has been awhile. Do they only send the "best" coupons to customers who have recently bought something?

    I used to think the same thing. I have placed a couple orders from them and do notice the 45% seems to come around like jabba stated!

    The Ti UKPK disappeared for a day or so and is apparently back. The same has happened with the Breeden Rescue before and the Chokwe has come and gone on their site a few times as well.
