The Byrd line covers the basics quite well at the moment. Quite a few of the major Spyderco knives have a Byrd counterpart. Delica-Meadowlark, Endura-Carara, etc. While not identical, the spirit of each knife and it's corresponding Byrd remain very similar. I can only make assumptions of sales volum...

Well, this is good news potentially, though 4 days later, getting on the wait list is pointless at this point, considering how fast they sold out.

Enjoy your sharp things ladies and gentlemen :cool:

Missed this one. Did not expect it to go out of stock that quickly. Ah well, it happens.

There's just one thing about these though. When you say Swick 4...uh, what happened to #3? Have you been holding out on us? :D Swick 2 was actually third generation. Swick 1 had two versions. A new Swick would be the fourth, technically speaking, but I'd like the idea of a third one I don't know ab...

There were 3 runs of Swicks. Two of which were sprints if I recall correctly. 1st set was nearly identical to the 2nd, but I cannot for the life of me find the info on site. It lacks the trademark hole, and also has the word Swick on the side of the blade with the Spyderbug, as well as came with a k...

Look at Titanium handled knives in comparison to their alternatives. The sad truth is that titanium is expensive. Also, the more exotic the handle, the higher the price point. To use the Native 5 as an example, compare the G-10 model to the fluted titanium, the Ti is roughly twice the price. If anyo...

I have an old Spot lying around somewhere, being overshadowed by the sheer awesomeness of the Swick ;) Both nice little knives, but I don't believe they were particularly popular when they were around.

From someone who has been in customer service(and felt the sting) for almost 20 years, I'd give you a standing ovation, but you wouldn't be able to tell :cool: In customer service, 9/10 times, you only hear the negative feedback, and it tends to be demoralizing. Take solace in the fact that for ever...

Tasman is quite sturdy and will hold up to semi-abuse. Have not owned a mini Matriarch, but that tip looks a bit thin for heavy use. On the flip side, I find VG-10 to outlast H-1 before I need to sharpen, and serrated only increases the time between sharpenings. I feel like I didn't help you choose ...

Is it really so dangerous to life in the states? First time I ask this, as over the years beeing a forum member I often see threads like this. Without going into such detail that it would put half of us to sleep, it depends on where you are, and the surrounding circumstances. There are areas of the...

A sturdy pair of shoes and a good knowledge of where I am. I have no desire to end up in court justifying my actions if I could have avoided the situation. Worst case scenario and I can't avoid it, whatever happens to be at hand. Good luck charging me with intent what there's more tape residue than ...

Interesting how much has changed since I was a regular here.

Not that what I say carries much weight, but this isn't really the place for this. Handle your business privately please. Not telling anyone what to do, just a polite request.

I think the texture of a knife handle is a pretty personal thing. What I consider rough, another may consider a wet eel, and vice versa. As mentioned before however, it comes down to cost effectiveness in the end. That being said, I remember when G-10 was only used on the high end models, and FRN wa...

Have to chime in here, mine is still going strong after 6+ years I think. To be perfectly honest though, it was lost in a shed in the backyard for a year of that.
