2021 and still discriminating.
You should probably start a 2021 thread so people don't get confused. I'd say organize a March For Justice so people nationwide know of this travesty. If that still doesn't work then you only have one option left: the dance-off
Hell, yeah!! Hit 'em where it hurts!
@unwisefool , you actually made me laugh out loud! Thanks!
I would bet that will wind up somewhere in my conversation with my guys out on the construction site tomorrow...!
It os frustrating.
There is definitely a demand considering how quickly the left-hand conversion kits sold-out. But they haven’t even made more of those. Shirogorov is even making a left-hand version now, but Hinderer still only has the Maximus , not even the XM, that is ambi.
The Ranch and Fieldtac are ambidextrous...
There's a lot of lefty or ambi knives out there, get over it . Buy a Spyderco Police, it'll cut anything a Hinderer will at half the price and has all position carry options.
So that is your recommendation?
I get it, there are plenty of other brands of knives out there which make ambidextrous knives and some even quality USA made flipper knives. But come on Spyderco Police!?! Sure, if you’re just looking for a knife that will cut (or a large Spyderco) it is great. But if you’re wanting a Hinderer, it isn’t even close. Spyderco Police has a different action, lock style, handle material, manufacture location, etc.
At least if you’re going to make a recommendation, recommend something similar.
The Police fulfills the same need for a knife...hard use, one hand opening, locking folder, right-left friendly, tip up or down, good steel.
Lefthandedness is only present in about 10% of the population.
You are correct in the characteristics that are similar. But most people, on this forum especially, have characteristics beyond those you mention that they do and don’t like on a knife. Even my wife, who isn’t a knife nut, has her own preference of opening mechanism and lock, both of which are different on the Spyderco Police as compared to Hinderers.
Would you suggest a Volkswagen Golf to a person who really wants a Ford Mustang on a car forum?
I’m curious, do camera forums have threads asking Canon and Nikon to make left handed cameras or have left handed photographers just adapted?
you sir are leftist and us left handed people aren’t going to take it.
That's funny. I'm not left handed but I find it easier opening a frame lock flipper with my left hand.
Hinderer, and others, can do a preorder to gauge the market. They may be hesitant due to perceived risk of return on investment.
Wouldn't that make me a rightist or an anti-leftist?
Just remember...if the right side of the brain controls the left side of the body, then only lefty's are in their right mind
If i can open/close the XM easily with my left, anybody can. I’d be more worried to use my left with the Maximus though. Note that I’m right-handed.
I can guarantee if he did a run they would sell out fast. Similar to the shiro run that was just released. Hell those were $750 too.
I’m right handed and carry right handed, but always close my frame locks with my left.
It can’t be that bad, haha.
My reply to all of you is to qoute myself from an earlier post....
I think that anything he makes sells out fast. That seems to ultimately be the problem. When sales slow, he is likely to step out of the box a little more. But, for now, why would he add more work without the prospect of more profit?
