It really is a great knife that was totally underrated.
I know ! ! !
I am super satisfied with mine.
. . . but . . .
quietly . . . one voice off in the wilderness is chanting just barely audible above the intermittent howl of the desert wind . . . then another voice then another . . . building and building :
No but seriously; Pattada from Syderco = Good Stuff !
Have you had yours for a while or brand new ?
I've had mine long enough to discover I prefer it without the pocket clip (carried in a belt pouch).
It's just an ergos thing for this particular user handle shape (have no problem with the Spyderco wire clip in general).
Good knife but on the heavy side. Tip is on the fragile side too. Sold mine off. Woulda prolly kept it if the liners were TI to keep the weight down.
Agreed. I use mine carefully and carry other knives for tip durability such as this one.
I was using it at work today.
That would be awesome. The steel liners are going to last longer though for the lock.
I'm good with the weight.
For a pallet cleanser carry a Buck 110 for a couple days. You'll be loving the Pattada for how light and agile it is.
These days, for my light use, I kind of like these thin ones. A 3.5-4" bladed knife like this is not so heavy as some of the more "tactical" options that are prevalent these days. Say what you want, but a 4" blade is nice when you want to slice an apple in half with one stroke, or cut the cheeks off a mango without getting the pivot full of junk. No thumb stud to catch either, when using the full length of the blade for those through cuts...
It looks a lot more ergonomic than something like a Boker Kwaiken, for example.
I had just about talked myself into one of these the other day, but I have a humble little Kershaw Chill which is similar in design that is doing the trick for me. (light duty, so the steel doesn't matter as much)
Thanx for the kind comments. K390 does not appeal to all. Mostly steel Junky's. The Police 4 was a gamble. Add to that the 25% - 30% more for the K390, makes the market smaller. The Pattada, as an "Ethnic model" did not appleal to the "eye" of many.
@Sal Glesser , perhaps an upgraded steel such as S35VN, S110V, or DLC M4 in a new Pattada...?
Love my Pattada. I still can't see what's wrong with n690co?
There's nothing "wrong" with N690, it's very much the same as VG-10. However, there are more preferred steels out there today.
or m4, rex45, hap40...
Nice to hear from you sir !
You know me . . . I latch onto something for what little comic effect I can wring from it and don't know when to stop. Thanks for not saying STFU STHU
Someone in another thread said they despised lanyard holes because they caused the pocket clip to be moved further down the handle making a knife stick up above the pocket.
That made me look at the Pattada and it seems like that is an optimal lanyard hole placement because it is pretty much beside the clip and with the deep carry wire clip what more could one ask ? !
I too could go for the M4 and the HAP40 would be so cool.
That's easy guys / gals all we have to do now is buy up all the existing Pattadas in N690 (as SSBB said nothing wrong with N690 (I love it to)) . . . then, THEN we can start howling in the wilderness in earnest for them other alloys.
Sure there are Para2 collections . . . some impressive ones . . . time to collect Pattadas, in all the alloys and handle materials . . . tantos for the non surgeons (delicate tip shunners) among us.
I'LL TELL YOU WHAT !
Better get your CLASSIC N690 Pattada before they are all gone !
You'll have to howl on the Spyderco site forum, or the Spyderco forum here. I don't get out to general very often. I was working on a smaller version of the Pattada, circa 3"-3-1/2" blade. Might be a good one for a new steel.
Lil Pattada would be awesome
That'll suit the people who want light weight.
I hope more and more people learn to appreciate the handle shape.
First time I laid eyes on it I said "that's what I'm looking for".
er . . . I mean yip yip y e e e e o w L L L L L
I am a fan of the Pattada in general (I have a custom Pattada from Sardinia), and a smaller version would be something that would spark some interest for me.
It's on the top of my "to buy" list. Just haven't been able to find the right "deal" for one yet but I will in time.
Any upgraded steel or components at all. I loved the look of the Pattada, but the overall package seemed like a compelling $100 knife.
I love the contoured G10 and the blade shape
