    Just placed the order for my new ulize. One of my favorite online knife stores have them in stock. Thought I would share.:)

    I saw it for sale too. It looks like a nice knife just a little too big for me. Hope you love it though.

    I went back to their website about an hour after I ordered mine and they were out of stock.

    Just in today. In hand it's great. Mine measures in at 4 1/8' long, so if concerened about legalities be aware. Build quality is outstanding, as I've come to expect from Seki Spydies. Blade centering, lockup are perfect, and action during open/closure is as good as it can be on a lockback. Tipup carry is nice, and in pocket it looks like a small knife/tool. I added some comparison shots to a Millie and the knife in my accumulation I immediately compared it to, the Ayoob. The grind and bevel finish is topnotch. The backlock requires a good push and some travel to disengage, which I like. All around I'm very satisfied with my example.

    Don't think I've seen this before. I like the looks, the blade resembles a Cold Steel Spartan that's been stretched to a third of its width! :D

    Great pictures. It does look like a stretched Spartan.... Also a BM 710 on acid!

    I would look upon the Ulize as a more organic version of the Police as much as I would consider the Caly3.5 a more organic version of the Endura. Contours. Contours. I feel Spyderco really understands the merging of form and function.

    I'm trying to picture a swedge on the blade but my mind won't form the image for some reason.

    That's a super crazy looking knife. I'm trying to pick a Spyderco to buy this year and this is a top contender. I'm not sure why - it's very long and I'm not a lockback fan, but it's just too cool to ignore.

    Great picture. I don't think the flat down views do it justice.

    Great comparison shot with the Ayoob, I will absolutely be picking up one (2) of these.

    Hi Finedges,

    Very nice shots, thanx much.

    Uli did a great job with the design and our Seki maker did likewise.

    Why is the Stretch/Native clip with the lanyard hole used on this knife, that seems a little sloppy to me.

    Anyone got a comparison pic with the Police 3? They're going to do battle for my pocket when I get my Ulize in.
