Re: Lost spydies

My desire for a Spyderco began instantly when I saw the Spyder-edged Endura in the movie "Cliffhanger". I saw and bought my first one in Okinawa in '94. I found it in a scuba diving shop on Kadena Air Base. It was the first version Delica ClipIt PE with the integrated clip. I lost it about 10 years ...

Re: Bob Lum Darn Dao

Picked it up at Smokey Mountain Knife Works. The salesman told me there were 1200 made. Mine is number 276. He said they are the only ones with them in stock so far and that I was the first person to buy one. I asked for serial number 1 but it wasn't in their batch. They only had three or four of th...

Re: Bob Lum Darn Dao

Picked one up last night. Wow, this thing has great balance and deft. Looks heavy but feels surprisingly light and just flows great. Those wanting to use this as a chopper, you won't be disappointed. I haven't been able to take mine out of the plastic bag yet LOL. I handled the display though. It co...

In the beginning, and back again :)

I bet most of us can remember when we first saw a Spyderco in a movie. I saw the Endura in the movie Cliffhanger in the mid 90s and had to find out what kind of knife it was that could be open with one hand. How impressive and cool is that. I mean how many times did we have only one hand free and ha...

The Manix 2 with G-10 grips. Or the XL if you want big. I carry the original Manix, and sometimes the Manix 80mm, and they have been my favorite EDC for years.

What? :eek: I wonder if I could get that much for my Lum Tanto Folder LOL. It's rare LOL. If it's worth that much, they should keep it for a few more years and list it for $1000. It's value is increasing faster than gold LOL.

Currently my favorite would be my Mini Manix PE. It is the perfect EDC for me because I favor G10 scales, flat-ground blades, and Tip-up carry, and the Mini Manix grip fits my hand like it was made for me LOL. I also like the Paramilitary. Wish it were tip-up.

It isn't really your knife until you've cut yourself with it. ;)

Most of my knives are really mine. :o
Well said. It's an "initiation" thing.
