Shipping Spyder to NYC

I want to gift a Matriarch to a friend in NYC.

Would you feel comfortable shipping one given their onerous and ambiguous laws? TIA

It really is fantastic. Two points: Ergonomics are truly masterful. Mr Schempp and both Eric and Sal Glesser are each masters of ergonomics and visually aesthetic design. Mr Schempp also happens to combine ergos with beautiful and celebrations of classic and ethnic designs. I echo everyone who urges...

I sure hope not a Native, purely because of (intimidating) looks I agree that previous iterations of the Native with their clip point swedge were pretty aggressive looking. I myself found them simply ugly so never got on board. However, the FFG CF Native IV and subsequent FFG Native V are much tone...

I am inclined to think that in each case it's just the result of a hollow grind on a trailing point blade.

Agreed, the Nilakka will be great with refinement. I love the angular shape of the G10 and the subtle striations.

For those of you really craving a tool but not wanting to step up to the bulk of an MT, a small pry bar can be great. Atwood of course is the "luxury" bar, STR's titanium bars are great, and cheap Ti and steel govt Widgey bars are at County Comm. They sit small and light in the pocket like a knife a...

I bought 4 of them as a financial investment. Say what you will about Nutnfancy but this is not ridiculous from a pragmatic perspective. His channel has over 150k subs and he claims the knives sold out in under an hour, which I find believable. His following is vilified but devoted. Watch ebay. The...

Check out the Hossom series. I have to think that as a manufacturer, large survival blades are probably a nuisance to produce. Those knives, more than any other genre, are "abused" regularly. Batonning and splitting wood is extremely hard on knives and many users take the ability to baton for grante...

It won't stop me from hooking into another or picking up my first Khukuri.

I'm still foregoing the Schempp Rock to make sure I have enough Spyder funds on hands to pounce on a sprint if I have to.

Darn photobucket. So many useful threads are ruined by their silly expiration.

Nice design. No permanent damage to the blade but still looks a little more intentional that the simple zip tie mod.

I'd like to see more knives featuring Schempp wheat heads on their blades. Especially in classic scales like micarta or natural materials.
