Re: Spyder Classics: The C-80 Dodo model

Hey JD, I've always enjoyed the feel of the scales on the Dodo as well as the Yojimbo since they seem so similar in many ways. When I think about the control over the blade that a large handle knife like the Dodo gives the user, nothing but confidence is instilled in me when using. The extended scal...

Re: Teaching a rookie to sharpen serrated Spyderco on Tormek

Okay, I hate to be critical though there is not much I like about this sharpening video, though I can learn from good and bad techniques. First off, I'd hate to be this rookie and second, this method really shortens the life of the serrations. I never attack the serrations from the flat side grind a...

Re: Meerkat phantom lock

The Meerkat is a very nice knife and the lock works well. Me being a right hander when trying to use this knife with my left feels a bit awkward though know that anything I do left handed feels awkward. The oddity though comes from pulling with the thumb and pushing with the fingers rather than how ...

Re: Spyderco Online Seconds Sale FAQ

My question is: Are we able to combine items for shipping? Since knives are only secured after purchase many buyers may choose to make multiple purchases.

Re: Completely Forgotten Spyderco Models: Your Favorites?

Hey JD,

The Golden Meerkat was only made with the leaf blade and I think in plain edge.

Re: Completely Forgotten Spyderco Models: Your Favorites?

Okay here's a few I'd miss if I didn't buy one or two or:

Scopius
Progrip/ Venator
Viele
Persian
Lava
Mouse

There are so many more. JD knows I'm with him on old school. I don't really know why though there are no Military, PM 2's or 3's in my collection.

Re: Spyderco model ID

Pro Venator.jpg I think I own too many knives. The more I think I know about Spyderco, the more I question what I think I know. I thought I'd throw out a bit of curiosity I've found on this model. I have a few of the old Venators, many NIB, all with the same bar code, one with a date of 03/99 with ...

Re: What happened to the Native III moulds?

Funny, I never noticed the Sal makers mark on the FRN. This knife became my EDC about a year and a half ago so that I could really try a CE blade. I've grown to appreciate both the blade and the molded scales since the VG-10 is easy to keep sharp and the scales give great purchase even when wet. I'v...

Re: Most Fidget Friendly Knife

I don't fidget much either, though to break a knife in I will cycle it until it feels smooth to me. One of my favorites is the Meerkat. Just a pinch of the scales, slight movement of the wrist and the blade opens or closes effortlessly.

I'll jump in with names that fit the design: Dodo (with it's hooked bill), Snap-it ( because of the quick snap), Captain ( plain edge beefy re-curve) if SE ( should be called the Crew or Sailor for hard work), Co-Pilot and Navigator ( since it was supposed to fly with you), Spydercard (since shaped ...

Re: Please Help With Spyderco Knife ID

The Moteng is one of the nicer ones that contain no letters/company name/ or trade mark. When Spyderco won the Blade of the Year, Blade magazine offered their own Q sequentially numbered for $10.00 each.

I tried to copy a scan of the Blade magazine cover though couldn't. Sorry..... July 1995 edition
