LGC Spyderco knife scales? Gauging interest

#1 Post by AmirMortal » Sat Nov 11, 2017 2:40 pm

I have a friend with a CNC machine and he's got a laser coming in the next couple of weeks. I was considering having some custom scales made for myself, when I thought maybe some of y'all would like an LGC logoed knife.

Spyderco is one of the only companies that doesn't void their warranty when you install aftermarket parts, so I figured that combined with their general popularity makes them a natural candidate. They also tend to have several variations on blade steel but with pretty much identical handle scale shape for most of their best selling models, so you could sort of get the handles, them pair them with your preferred blade steel/price point.

So the question them becomes: which model(s)?
NOTES:
Almost all models except "Sprint Runs" can be had for about half the listed price.
This will only work for models that are screwed together. Will NOT work on pinned models, such as some of the lightweights.

That's pretty sweet. If I was needing to replace my Benchmade I'd be in for sure.

My angle is 'in addition to' I carry Benchmade as well and custom scales for that would be awesome. :)

Not necessarily against getting a Benchmade (and doing something like this would give me a good excuse) down the line, but I'm pretty sure even though they sell the tools, their warranty is voided if you disassemble the knife. I would be pleased to be wrong in this case.

That said, the Endura 4 in G10 is the leading pick so far for this poll.

How odd. Looks like you are correct. Probably a basic disclaimer to keep stupid people from claiming warranty service for stupid things they've done. (Like taking it apart and screwing up the mechanism)

Probably. Also serves the marketing dept., keeping the brand 'above' the riffraff who think they can sharpen and lube their own knife. Pfft. I admit I do like their mail-in sharpening service, though. I use my mini Barrage on everything, from kindling to cheese. That cheese is surprisingly hard on the blade.
