indeed you where right! new is new, like new is taken out of the box and opened a few times, carried is carried, used is used. Better luck next time Johns Fishy pictures always scream "warning" for me, as you can clearly see, the seller is capable of taking very detailed pictures. :confused: Greetz ...

Spyderco Forumites Friends !

Sal is right, most non US Forumites have too pay double the MSRP price. Maybe one of us who lives in the States and is a thrustworthy and long time member can invent the non profit "Spyderco Forumites Fund". We donate money to the fund (say by coïncidence the MSRP) and the SFF donates us as a way of...

Indeed Vincent , for me a 100$ is a pair of shoes for one of my kids, or 4 days food, a new tire, and two filled gas tanks for the car. Don't think "old" people can draw handfull of $ out of their hats. Some have to support family's on limited resources. Also remember that some people don't live in ...
