Good quote, mate. One point that I have to wonder about is why the population isn't more upset with a president who stole the election and why no outcry to abolish the electoral collage that makes our votes meaningless. George Sr, George W, & Jeb all benifited from rather unusual elections. Wonder w...

IMO the erosion of our personal liberty is
now in ful swing. The Bush dynasty will be
recorded as the one true killer of what our
constituion afford us. Terroism aside, liberty
is never really free. Fight for it yes..cower
before our new secret police.....bad news.

The secret behind TV hawked cheap knives is.. "Price Point" There is a price level at which some folk's will not go beyond. That level is dependent on the customers knowledge of the product or "what they are told". If you offer a dozen knives at $40 most folks will risk the money thinking they will ...

Sure, we welcome positive discussions of all knives. The cold steel knives you mention have what's called "eye" appeal to some folk's. As to are they good knives, I'd say yes..... in the right application. What you might want to consider is ......are you collecting them or going to use them. Collect...

A more direct answer to why more than one knife is easy. Every tool has a distinct purpose. So it is with knives. No one blade can do everyting well and different blade shapes do more work easier. If you make a practice of carrying more than one knife you will soon learn that the blade shapes had be...

Instead of wasting development dollars on a "new" clip design spend them on a new way to carry your spyderco's. Look for ways to carry your spydie such as a clipped sheath with magnets or sticky rubber inserts to hold the knife in a pocket pouch as an example. Experiment with embedded magnets to hol...

No, I didn't forget that some spyderco's are ....designed... to have a clip both sided. They are mostly the volumn leaders in the spyderco lines in a controlled molding process that will limit the opportunity for scrap. Therefore the risk (cost) is lower. For the hi end spydies that require a machin...

The main reason most knives don't have clip hole on both sides is the cost of another operation to pu them on both sides. That extra operation means more scrap for the total operations count. With the market for lefty knives being so small it is not good business to support the extra scrap rate for ...

Hope you wife enjoys a speedy recovery.

One lesson that can be drawn from this incedent is
that there is no such thing as a harmless knife. Kitchen
tools often are overlooked for the danger they pose.
From a table dull butter knife to the sharpest knife in
in the rack all must be respected.

Yes, by all means go to Sears for your tool needs. If you

The issue of very large folders has been around for centuries. Over time the number of them has always been small due the fact that much beyond 4" a fixed blade is much safer. Experianced knife users (Not collectors) will bear witness to that fact. So my only comment on a very large spydie is .....W...

One it comes to the meanest and the baddest of anything it will usually be the one you least suspect and selsom think of. So in terms of sheer cutting power (that's what a knife is all about, right?) my vote will always go for the large Calypso. Other than the chinese none of the other spyderco's ar...
