I just love how companies make it sound like they're looking after their customer's best interests.

Spyderco is one company I do belive IS looking out for their customer's best interest. Everyone discontinues old and underselling products to make way for new stuff, especially when they have a finite production capacity, Spyderco publishes their discontinued model list for us, so we can snag an outgoing model before they are gone. They are one of the best companies for knife knuts, produce a huge number of models, and take a chance on designs that nobody else will. The owner, Sal posts on forums all the time, and I've talked to him several times by PM. I've seen him send out knives to customers who weren't happy with his products for one reason or another, in most cases the replacement was worth far more than the model the customer originally bought. He involves customers in testing, and bringing exotic steels to the public, and have seen him produce a model as a direct result of customer requests. He sends out new products, and gives sneak peaks to fans all the time. Their customer service, and willingness to fix or replace anything that breaks is legendary.

Most of the models on the list have either run their course, or have a direct replacement on the way. A couple I'm sad to see go, but BladeHQ and Knifecenter are offering remaining stocks for sale for less than they typically go for used. Picked up a $120 Domino myself, 3rd spyderco I've bought in the last month. Most of the higher end knives on clearance now will be able to be sold or traded for more than their current price pretty much as soon as they sell out.

I got a Positron and a Domino. The Positron is a gamble; people seem to either love them or hate them. But at less than $100 I am willing to give it a go.

The domino is a solid little knife, but the Positron handle just looks uncomfortable, and I'm no fan of liner locks, but have been proven wrong in the past, and overlooked some cool knives that ended up working out. Been looking at picking up a supersteel Para 2, probably S110V, but might take a gamble on Maxamet, supposedly 70HRC and more wear resistant than S110V, but potentially chippy, and supposedly starts to rust really easily, even by non-stainless standards.

Ok - after looking at what Knife Center has on sale - I am thinking about getting a PITS Fred Perrin Street Beat as well.

My $120 Domino arrived, at this price I might snag another, this is a fantastic EDC. It's basically a Manix2 blade in updated steel with a flipper/Ti framelock on bearings that reminds me of the new crop of ZT blades, really nice flipper action. Fit and finish is a step above my other Spyderco's, which is saying something, I kinda like the much maligned woven CF pattern on top of the G10 scale, even so, it's easily replaceable with something else. The handle shape is excellent, a bit smaller, thinner, and feels more refined than the manix, but in the same ballpark as an epic utility design.

I got Positron from the sale. It's too small for my big hand and the point drags below my thumb when I open it. Plus the flipper is small and you have to put some finger tension on the frame before pulling down on the flipper to snap it open.

It's on eBay now with the Chubby I never carry.

I just got mine today and I like it but I ended up reversing the clip as it dug into my hand. That mod made it much perfect. I don't know if that would be helpful to you or not.

I would give it a slight ding for having slick scales (should have textured it).
