Personally, I like the Dyad very much. It is indeed a very much under-rated knife. It has great possibilities.

Perhaps one day, it will rise up again like the Phoenix.

Those Missing Years

I was just reading up a bit on the Spyderco history when I noticed that in 1978, sharpeners were introduced. Then there was a lull. Nothing happened until 1981. New products were introduced every year until 1984, then 1985 and 1986 nothing again. What happened during those missing years? Thought I a...

Combo Edge 50/50 - is it the best?

I am one of those who are impressed with the Spyder-Edge because of its improved cutting performance with its one large and two small serrations. A lot of knife users prefer the plain edge. Some prefer the combo edge. If I go for the combo edge, what would be the best combo to go for? I understand t...

Who names the knives?

For a while now, I have been curious about the origins of Spyderco models and their names. Who comes up with all the different names like Native, Delica, Dyad, Salsa, Civilian, Matriarch, etc? Can we the Spyderco collectors and owners come up with suggestions for names of models? Okay, let's make it...

Is there any way of knowing how wide is Spyderco's influence?

How many countries does Spyderco currently exports its products to? Based on its present sales figures, is it possible to come to a figure as to the number of Spyderco collectors or buyers around the world? There is probably a simple mathematical formula to reach such a conclusion. It won't be very ...

Yeah, I had to retrieve the knife from Samo real quick because his saliva was dripping over all the blade.

And as you know, saliva can be corrosive.

Where's that much talked about ATR?

I don't hang around these parts much, but recently I caught a glimpse of the Spyderco ATR.



It is an impressive design. It shows great promise. What's the latest take on this model?



When is it coming out and how much is it going to cost me?

That's the One!

I reckon Spyderco has been around for more than 10 years. Perhaps now is the time to ask the question: Which particular one of the many Spyderco models that shot the firm into prominence? I am sure among the more famous brands, some of their founders would look back nostalgically 20 years later and ...

Spyderman Samo temporarily indisposed

If you don't see Samo posting here for the next couple of weeks, it's because he just had a nasty motorcycle accident 48 hours ago. Samo's currently under treatment at the General Hospital. He suffered a broken left leg in that crash. So those of you who know him, kindly send some prayers and positi...

GlockDoc, I am actually surprised that in your part of the country, knife gifts are "purchased." Here in Malaysia, we also have a similar practice. Anybody who receives a knife as a gift from another should give some money back in return. According to tradition, if money is not given to the bearer o...

Ying-Yang questions

Can you identify five areas in which Spyderco may want to improve upon? This approach has probably been employed by the Japanese since the 1960s in improving the quality of their products. They probably had a better procedure for strategic thinking. Thus, one can see that in the 21st century Japanes...

Growing number of Spydermen

I have noticed this phenomenon for some time now. Spyderco must have the biggest bunch of loyal supporters compared to the other brands. I have yet to come across anybody saying anything negative about Spyderco. This alone must surely be a bonus, to say the least. At first glance, I must admit Spyde...

I am from different parts of Malaysia. Originally from the State of Perak. Later Penang. Penang holds the best memories for me.
