    Ahh one of my most favorite threads of the year.

    Thank you for sharing, I'm itching for more. The endela looks like a great idea.

    The P4 LW will be VG-10. We're also planning K390 (Midnight blue) & ZDP (BRG) in the future.

    Put a polished wire or metal clip on the P4 LW and it would be perfect to me. Just hate to carry knives w/black clips on them because they show wear so easily.

    I’m happy and sad about the P4LW.
    Variety is great, but my decisions are harder (P4 vs P4LW—when K390 becomes available).

    The I’ll be waiting for the blue! Fortunately that’s a nice color, so is the green.

    What is MSRP on these?

    Spyderco 2019 Production Sample – Small Efficient
    The small efficient is, simply put, a smaller version of the efficient. As is usual for Spyderco, the 'cockpit area' (the area of the knife covering roughly the pivot, choil and opening hole) seemed the same size. The blade and back of the handle are shortened to achieve a smaller version of the same knife, but with proper ergonomics. This small efficient was indeed a 'fist full of small knife'. It reminded me of the Dice versus the larger Domino.

    Small Efficient looks like a cross between the Lil' Native and the old Chad Los Banos Lava.

    Spyderco 2019 Production Sample – Emphasis
    The Spyderco Emphasis is kind of a larger version of the Efficient. So with the Efficient, Small Efficient and the Emphasis, you got a nice trio of value folders. The Emphasis handled heavier but well balanced, compared to the Small Efficient. It also looked and handled a lot like another large G10 handled knife I get to show you in a later posts.

    Spyderco 2019 Production Sample – Sage 5 Lightweight
    I made a rookie mistake when ‘judging’ the new Sage 5 Lightweight, I went by its looks. The new grip pattern looked different, and therefore a bit ‘wrong’. Then I picked up the knife, and ‘got it’. Are you familiar with the grip effect on the FRN pattern slipits, like the UK Penknife, Urban or Squeak? Did you notice how the pattern feel smooth when you move your fingers ‘up and down’ on the handle? And how it gets very tacky when you move ‘forward’ towards the blade? Imagine that effect times ten, and that is how this handle pattern feels -to me- on the new Sage 5 lightweight.

    Eric shared at the meet how Spyderco wanted to make lightweight compression locks for a long time. It required the introduction of new polymers to make it a reality. A compression lock exerts a lot of force on the handle, and this new lightweight stuff can take it. Personally, I’m not the world’s biggest Sage fan, but I can certainly get into many other famous Spyderco compression lock folders in a lightweight format!
