Well, now I've had a few days of USE of my Meerkat, and its definitely my favorite small/friendly knife- Spyderco or otheriwise. (Of course, I only have ONE knife that's not a Spyderco, and it's NOT a small knife by any means). Anyway, I read on the BladeForums that colors and reverse s-curved Meerk...

Hmm...

Thanks, Sal and all, for the Meerkat!

Maybe I'm alone here, but I just got my Meerkat the other day and I have to say, as far as Spyderco's smaller knives, this is now my favorite. I've been a die-hard Dragonfly carrier for a long time, and never really liked the "navigator" based knives, but with the Phantom lock and the heft of the li...

My first was a Ladybug, but the first one I really clung to and carried all the time was my second, the Dragonfly serrated FRN. (I've since given it away a couple times over). <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle>

Hi Jeff! My first guess would be cost issues. If I recall, the FRN and SS Delica are almost the same price, but there is quite a difference in price on the SS Dragonfly over the FRN. I agree it doesn't make much sense that the "standard" seems to have been reversed on the Dragonfly. All I can say is...

A question for those who may have the know-how to find out for sure. California is a very volatile place to have just about any kind of "exotic" knife. However, recently I've found several switchblade knives that are California Legal (their blades are under 2" ). Since its our switchblade/gravity kn...

I'm looking into picking up a Benchmade Mel Pardue 856 (wth G-10 handles)... just curious, from those of you who own Benchmade knives, is this a decent little knife? It looks like a good "sunday" knife- friendly, conservative, non-threatening. How are Benchmade's knives? Anyone know anything about t...

I'm always looking for "different" knives- this one would fit the bill.

That, and I like it- sounds cool. I'll take a spydercoin, too! <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle>

Suggestions

After seeing all sorts of suggestions on improvements roaming around here, I thought it might be kind of fun for each of us to pick up our favorite Spydie and move to fantasy land- that distant place where any changes you would make could be done. (Of course, my intention is not for this to be a pla...

A contest? A prize just for posting? How could I pass that up! <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle> It's a toss-up between two, but as of late the Dragonfly FRN has been my most used knife.

Best Sellers?

Sal, or Joyce, or anyone else who cares to share, I have a question (out of simple curiosity): I know the Delica and Endura are the stereotypical best sellers, but I'm curious what others are in the "best sellers" list. It seems the Cricket and Calypso, Jr. and Military are quite popular- but are th...

Craig- I have both an FRN Dragonfly and FRN Cricket (serrated and plain, respectively) and have found both to be quite "acceptable" to the masses. I think either- considering their small size- should work well for your needs. Congrats on the Cricket purchase- its a great little knife (the only one I...

I started off with a spyderedge SS Dragonfly, which got lots of negative response from sheeple. I think it might have been the teeth, however. When I "upgraded" to an FRN plainedge, I got much less negative press from the masses. However, I have since decided I prefer serrated edges, and have gone b...

I just found out I'm not the only one unloading aluminum crickets on ebay- including mine, there are actually three. Two serrated, and one plain. Well, it seems these rare little guys are showing up for those of you who want them. <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle>

I don't know if there's an "official" screen saver, but I know how you can "make" one. If you have a Mac, that is. A small company called Ambrosia Sofware makes a super-friendly screen saver called Eclipse. Eclipse will let you "paste" your own logo into a window and use that logo as your screen sav...

As I understand it (just to clear up misconceptions) even though many of the Spyderco knives are made in Japan, they're all "invented" and designed (er- thought up) here in America, correct? -Michael Kind of like how all of Apple's new stuff has the slogan "Designed by Apple in California / Made in ...

Wow... I did find out one thing today (from another thread) I did not know that Mr. Sal was the owner of Spyderco.

That makes his presence- and his willingness to adopt ideas from out here- all the more incredible. Thanks, Sal! <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle>
