Whoa. I really didn't think that would be the next Golden model to get this flavor. I might have to revisit the Yo2.

Oh I'm all over this. I've wanted a tougher steel in a Yojimbo since it was released.


I do wish they'd do the Sliverax though :(

Y'all are wrong for this. So much for trying to cut back on spydies

Not a huge fan of the jade but maybe this is the one that gets teeth?

I’m in the same boat! Not a fan of jade, but still may try to scoop one of these.

BladeHQ did a video about RIT dying jade g10 a translucent light blue, and it came out great in my opinion!

Dang. I literally just ordered a yo2 last night(brown s90v). If not for that, this would be a must have for me.

Oh man. Definitely going to try for this one, border or no border. I missed out on the 20cv but I can’t miss this one. Like many others I’m not a fan of the natural g10 but M4 on that blade is a no brainer.

Yes indeed! M4 is a great choice for a Yo2 and I think the jade green looks good on it. I don't need another Yo2, but this might be hard to pass up. Please, everyone else buy them up!

Finally an exclusive or sprint that's recently dropped that I'm not interested in! The Yojimbo just doesn't check the boxes for me, but good for all of you that are into it! Our wallets are all hurting after these past few weeks of great releases, Spyderco needs to chill out for a bit! :p

Probably going to pass on this one. A DLC version would possibly get me to pick up my first Yo.

Still hoping they they continue this line with DLC M4 / Jade G10 Shamans and Lil Natives and rerun the Millie and Native with DLC.

Id really love to see a DLC M4/White FRN Native LW as well.

Waiting impatiently for: LC200N Native Salt, Rex45 Military, Cruwear Micarta Shaman! :eek:

Wishing for: Sprints/exclusives of some Golden-made folders in 3V and 4V. More Native and Native LW sprints/exclusives

I don't currently have anything with Jade G-10 in my collection, but I've always been fond of it. Super excited about the M4!

I really don't get all the hate for the jade G10. We've had several threads asking for white FRN so people can dye them, this is essentially the same thing. It'll take just about any color dye.

Hate?
I get the impression, that the jade Spydercos sell like hotcakes.
Many rave about them - just look at this very thread ;)

Some of the nay sayers in this thread dont like the design of the Yo or that the blade is not DLC. That hardly is jade hate though.

I might be mistaken but its my impression that jade is popular.
Jade Spydercos gets snapped up VERY fast on for example BF.
