How far in advance do people start lining up/camping out?

A couple people got there Thursday afternoon last year, but it wasn't until Friday evening that the line really grew. When the sale starts on Saturday, they let in the first group of 50 people or so, then one person in for every person that comes out. The line probably didn't hit 50 people until the early evening on Friday.

So what are the seconds ceramics like? All I've seen anyone mention is knives.

Thanks Jabba.

I'll be there for sure. As to if its Friday or Saturday will depend on weather I suppose.

One run I have been curious to see if it will every show the light of day is the Japanese Rhinos. Can anyone comment if they have ever seen an entire batch of failed QC models at the seconds sale? Dont get me wrong, I love my Taiwan model. It was absolutely the right choice to change manufacturers. I just wonder from time to time what happens when 800-1500 knives as a whole fail? Im sure disassembly isn't practical for the few pieces they could repurpose.

IIRC, that batch was already deemed substandard by the time of the seconds sale last year and could have been there, but there were none.

I’m reluctant to even share a rumor I heard while I was there last year, but I heard they would be available at this years sale. This is by no means a fact though. I guess we’ll find out on November 17th! :D

There was an entire run of K04 serrated kitchen knives one year, so it seems possible that a large batch of the original Rhinos could make there way into the sale. I’ve got my fingers crossed! ;)

If I recall correctly, they didn't sell them last year because they didn't want the factory seconds to beat the actual release to market.

That makes sense. It was best to not muddy-up peoples impression of the model. The Taichung variant is about as perfect as can get.

For some reason I can't recall if sprint 2nd's show up here (?).

The closest I've come to making the sale is off by one weekend last year on a business trip. Maybe one day. I still enjoy seeing your hauls and excitement from the treasure hunt posted here for us to enjoy. Stay warm!

I think I have seen posts from years past of people picking up sprints/exclusives at the seconds sales.

They actually had the Knifecenter cruwear with smooth CF manix 2 BEFORE knifecenter released info about them. I saw the knife at the sale and was baffled as that model had never been released before

So if I arrive at 08:00 on Saturday how long might I have to wait to get in? Is there enough stuff to find good deals without camping out? I’m hopefully going to be there at 8:00 am.

For those of you who have been to the Seconds Sale in the past, what does Spyderco consider "an incredible discount"?
Hopweaver, Below is an image of a haul from last year's Seconds Sale, prices are still on the blades. I heard from someone that the blue stickers are actually returns... imagine a K2 for $60.00 or that M4 BHQ Manix 2 for $65.00

The Black & Brown Southards (NIB)were being cleared out for $135 / $125 respectively. You may have to zoom in to see the prices :spyder:

Well worth it in my opinion!

Wow those are some really good discounts! I am going to have to make my way up there for the next seconds sale.

Just heard news on the Spyderco Factory Outlet Facebook page of a "special guest" attending this years sale.

:spyder:

So close now, just one week. :D Exciting!
