What out of production knife do you covet? Login/Join 
Member
posted
Hey all-

I just purchased one of my all time favorite Spyderco knives: a Co-pilot!
Spyderco originally spec'd this knife out to be under the airline knife length restriction. All that went away on 9/11 so this knife has always hearkened back for me to a simpler and more sensible time. Smile

Co-pilot
What out of production knife do you covet?

I have one that my dad brought back from Finland, and there are reproductions being made, but I have kids that could use one or two each...

Benchmade Mel Pardue 475. The symmetry, balance, size and shape were perfect. I want the auto but they're illegal in Wa. State.

Benchmade Ares. All of the variations.

And the Benchmade 42. Still the finest production balisong ever made.

Check this guy. I'm not sure this is exactly the knife you're looking for, but it appears he has some. I got a ZT0301TS from him a year or so back, after they were discontinued, and was extremely happy with the deal:

This one has the black blade, but you could e-mail him to see if he has any left with the TS blade.

Your post hit home braillediver for me...
I bought my 475 at a Washington Arms Collectors gun show 20+ years ago while still living in WA. After 30 years (in the rain) we moved to AZ in 2001 and the very first knife I bought in the auto-knife-friendly-state-of-Arizona was the matching auto.

Almost every mall that has a cutlery store carries switchblades and OTF fun stuff.

An Ek M4, for the last 30+ years.

No real use for it. A "dagger", so illegal to do much with here, but still...

About a year and a half ago I stumbled upon this pair for sale on a local forum. I'd never heard of Zero Tolerance but liked the look of them so I picked them up at $250 for the pair. That quickly escalated into a pretty sizable ZT collection. They have a lot of designs I like.

I snagged one of these a few weeks ago for a decent price (second from top). It's a really well-designed knife and I wouldn't mind getting one with a plain edge. All of these are nice discontinued Benchmades.



I can't think anything I'm actively pursuing but I've learned to just buy a knife while it's in production if I like it. Otherwise it could prove to be a difficult and expensive hunt down the road.

If I didn't already have one, I would have coveted the Spyderco Jumpmaster (original, not Jumpmaster 2). As it was, when I found out recently that it had been discontinued, I snagged the last one at Knifeworks. So I guess I coveted it even though I had one!

Just started a thread looking for advice on finding one. Want to replace one I had 20 years ago, found out they are no longer made. Frown

+1 just a sexy looking auto. I looked for one once autos became legal and only found 1 83mm model. I checked the next day and it was gone too.
