    Default Did someone say Lum?

    This knife was handmade for me by Bob Lum just prior to his untimely death. It's probably the most precious knife in my collection and a pattern for Spyderco collaboration knives which would come after his passing. I simply can't bring myself to carry it like I should.

    I have two of the Lum x Spydercos, wish I still had my original numbered green ones. I still need one of the glass fiber handled variants as well as the large Lum. Do you have any other sizes or are yours all the mid-size?

    Still kind of miffed that I was the one who proposed the ZDP-189 variant but I was never able to get one.

    Default Funny thing. I've got one that looks just like it.

    Two differences: (1) mine is shorter - a three inch blade; and, (2) mine doesn't even have holes to attach a clip - I asked Bob to make it without a clip.

    It's a great knife and I have carried it, though not a lot, so it's no hangar queen. Special, though, for sure.

    I thought you had 12 or so just like it. Of course one of my two was gifted by the lurker formerly known as OCD.

    Some days, I really wish I was right-handed.

    DLC'd 3.6" S30V full-tang blade, handle of machined G10, kydex sheath. I like the gladius-like profile of the blade. The handle is very slim, amost too small. I'd like to see a full size version with a six or seven inch blade.
