The subject says man's first weapon; the post says man's first tool. I'm sure they were two different things. Which one are you asking?

Either way, though, I'd love to know how your doctor knows. I'm pretty sure that whatever it was, it predates records.

Just managed to get a second PE Standard as a backup. I have a feeling my girlfriend might "borrow" it, though.

While you're explaining your Al-isms, Allen, would you mind letting me know where you got the word "opine"? I've been wondering since the first time I saw it.

That's the knife that turned me off to Micarta handles and to linerlocks.

Geez. You guys must be pretty serious collectors or something. I can't think of a Spyderco I want enough that I'd be willing to pay more than the MSRP. More than half of it is even a little iffy. There are a couple I've really wanted since day one, and I managed to get them for 1/2, 1/3, and 1/8 MSR...

I'd be awful surprised if Spyderco actually made the screws, but I have a feeling they could tell you where to get the ones you're looking for.

Replies: 17
Views: 4425

Work, I had the opposite experience -- I've had a bunch of new Spydies and I had one Sebenza. The Sebenza is the only knife that was sharper than my Spydercos, although my Calypsos came awful close.

With that said -- I have a Spyderco in my pocket, and I don't own any CR knives.

I'm also a pretty big fan of the USPS, never had a problem. As a matter of fact, I'm wrangling with UPS right now -- something going from Florida (them) to Maryland (me) ended up in Illinois (huh?). I always ship priority with a confirmation number, and I don't remember the last time it took more th...

I'm trying to be clever here, so this is probably only going to get a snicker or a groan, but how about the Spyderco Efficienado?

Spelled that way, naturally, for the double meaning. I can almost guarantee you it's never been used.

I know I'm not the only one out there who thinks a well used, well cared for knife looks pretty nice. Brand new solid black clips look almost a little sterile to me.

They've always treated me right, and I see no reason to think they won't do so in the future. Cops using a Spyderco doesn't make Spyderco hypocritical. It means that someone at Cops has good taste. You might say that there legal issues in knife production is oxymoronic but, quite frankly, it's not. ...

It really makes no difference to me. I suppose the optimal size would be the one on the G-10 Harpy, since it's the knife on which I learned. Muscle memory and all that. But, really, I find it very easy to open my Ladybug, and I found it veyr easy to open my Military. That's part of the beauty of a h...

I've bought from the factory store once or three times. Everything else has been from elsewhere on the internet. I don't think I have ever bought a knife in a real store, but that's because I've only been to one, and prices were thirty to fifty percent above MSRP. I'd pay MSRP, but that's a bit of a...

The technical reason is that, since putting serrations on both sides is impractical, they needed to pick one side. Assuming you're holding the thing you're cutting with your left hand (because you're cutting with your right), they wanted the knife to migrate away from your holding hand, not toward i...
