A few months back I won a Centofante III for a great price on an online auction. Like you, I was looking for a knife between the sizes of the Delica and Endura. I LOVE the looks of the Cento III and that cool silver spydie, and the thinner blade, to me, is a blessing. HOWEVER, even after all my droo...

Question about my NOS Police

Recently picked up an older serrated Police via an online auction. Mint condition. Great knife. Has a red box and the tang says just "SPYDERCO" on one side and "SEKI-JAPAN" on the other side. Can anyone tell me what steel the blade is? What about when the knife was made? Thanks in advance. (And than...

I just looked at the Botach site. The shipping cost would double the price of a Photon II. It still wasn't a terrible price, and Photons are great, but that sort of pricing scheme (basically a bait-and-switch where, at first glance an item costs X, but once it's ordered it costs X+X) really ticks me...

As native Floridian, born to a native Floridian father, who in turn was born to a mother who'd moved down here from Indiana in 1908 (**** snowbird!), I concur. Florida has indeed come to suck. And it will continue sucking until the invading locusts (i.e. complaining Yankees) who have swarmed here in...

Replies: 16

I prefer PE because the vast majority of my knife use is just good old normal pocketknife stuff: scraping, scratching, fiddling, slicing, poking, carving, etc. And for that, I prefer the versatility of a plain edge. I can't remember EVER having to hack through a rope or seatbelt or netting, or needi...

samo: If you're a wine drinker, look for the new wine, which I believe should be out now, called "burcak" (boor-chaak). If it's out now, they'll be selling it in the wine bars, or "vinarnas." The Moravians are great wine producers and drinkers and cutting up some cheese and salami to go with the bur...

Hope you get a chance to see Prague. I'm sure they'll be busy cleaning up from all those floods but it's still the most beautiful city in the world and where I learned about Spydercos too!

I like the shape of the Goddard but found mine too darn big ... I traded it for an Endura and never regretted it. I don't own one, but I really like the utilitarian looks of the Pro Grip Lightweight.
