Topic: REVIEW REQUEST: SPOT
Replies: 7
Views: 1547

My SPOT is my concealed EDC. I wear it in urban settings as well as the back country. I've adjusted the length of the chain so that it rides between my pecs and it is both comfortable and unseen. Rarely do I take it off and rarely do people know I carry it... except my family and friends who have se...

Topic: OT - Any GPS users out there?
Replies: 18

Hi Samo, I use and sell Garmin's Gekos, e-Trex and Rhinos. My biggest problem with them (all GPSs for that matter) is their severe battery usage. I can do better (and go much longer) with my SUUNTO watch and topo map (with a needle compass, whistle and Spyderco around my neck for backup). Batteries ...

Hi Sal, I vote for technology and subscribe to the right tool for the right job. My EDC varies for the city, the back country and water sports. However, when pressed for a multi-knife, my EDC is my SPOT (perhaps the lightest knife I own). However, when I go off hiking or camping with the guys (not E...

Yikes... cutting about 30 of your kids... that's tough! There's some great suggestions above. I only have a few suggestions: Cut (poor choice of words) the Wrench... it is cumbersome and multi-tools have become a mass market driven by price rather than quality. Ditto for the new saw... tough to sell...

I can't say it any better than Dave did. I agree with everything he said. My thanks and congratulations to Sal and the Spyderco crew for this most beautiful and sentimental piece of history. I use every knife I own... except for this one. The knife in its display box have taken a prominent position ...

Prior to wearing my SP<img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>T I had worn a CRKT Bearclaw. Although the Bearclaw is quite functional (and costs less), the difference between the two is tremendous. You always knew the Bearclaw was around your neck due to its weight and shape. ...

See SPT run!

I just wanted to write and compliment Sal and Spyderco for the SP<img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>T. I have the micata model and find it to be the perfect everyday wear. It is extremely light and can be worn discretely under anything. Around my neck or in my hand, it's ...

I unfortunately agree with Sal's view of the future. However, the nonconformist within me does not subscribe to limiting EDCs to small gent knives, just for the sake of satisfying the PCs. It's the same PCs that want to have someone else take the lead to defend them... "Let's roll" is a too true of ...

Hey KBR... sounds like our dad's should get together. But then, sometimes two likes don't work well together. I'm also afraid the way my dad cleans under his nails with his pocket knife would be a bit much (bloody) with a Spydie.

IMHO... some of you need to unwind and relax a bit. Can't imagine how you would pop your cork if it were a serious problem!?!

We recently picked up a new line of sunglasses, Native. Take a look at their website; http://www.nativeyewear.com/home.htm
I've tried them all on and really like the fit, the optics and the styles. IMHO... I like them better than Oakley and Smith, which we also sell.

A Beautiful Knife... Forum 2002

My knife arrived today (250 of 500) and it is absolutely gorgeous! It's got the sleekest most beautiful lines I've seen on a <img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>. Now I know why Jeff equated it with sex... <img src="wink.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> Nice ...
