Spyderco 2016 Production Sample – Stuart Ackerman Sustain

The Sustain was my favorite new fixed blade design at this year’s Amsterdam Meet. It was a nice large tactical type blade that was also very thin and light. I really liked the ergos, and even though my suburb environment doesn’t provide a clear ‘practical need’ for this design for EDC, I’m still going to get one. I’m sure I’ll find something cool or useful to do with it!

    I am very much interested in the Stuart Ackerman Sustain and would like to know how I can purchase one. Is there a forum or an alert lust that I can subscribe to?
    Thanks for your help,

    • Hi mike, the spyderco discussion forums would be a good place, but I’d suggest signing up for the spyderco byteor to keep track of the listings on spyderco’s new product page on their website.
