    EDIT: Rookie and Calypso are still available.

    Lum is sold pending funds.
    1. Lum Chinese - collector's #637
    Carried a few times, used a few times, and sharpened once.
    A couple very light scratches on the blade - I bet they can be polished out.
    The coating on the aluminum scales is slightly flaked around the top clip holes which happened when I switched the clip from tip-down to tip-up.
    All of these flaws are very minimal. Knife is otherwise in great shape.
    Asking $80 shipped.[/b]


    Meerkat is gone.
    2. Meerkat
    Carried a few times, used a few times, still has factory edge.
    A couple very light scratches on the blade - again, I'm sure they can be polished out.
    Asking $25 shipped.


    3. Calypso Jr. Lightweight
    A now discontinued knife which was a favorite amongst Spyderco fans.
    Carried a few times, used a few times, it retains its scary sharp factory edge but has a tiny spot near the tip where it looks like the edge is rolled. A steeling or sharpening will quickly fix this small flaw. I can find no scratches on this knife. You will have a hard time finding one of these in such good condition.
    Asking $40 shipped.

    Adding another one to the chopping block:

    G-10 Rookie
    This is another discontinued beauty. Like the others, it has light surface scratches from minor use.
    This is the smaller version of the Police model.
    Asking $50 shipped.


    If you want to purchase multiple items I will cut the prices for you.
    If you think any of my prices are unfair, feel free to email me with an offer. I can also entertain partial trades but the fact is: I need money.

    Yes, the Lum is the green one. It is a Spyderco collaboration with custom maker Bob Lum and is numbered on the blade as it was one of the first 1000 made (#637).
