I have nightmares of opening an automatic knife which slice my fingers off in the process. Best not to dwell on AOs as well.

I am mulling over whether to buy the Civilian or the forum knife. I am very worried that the Native will be too small for me. Darn it.

Ladybug these past few days. Have it on my key ring. If I need a change, I will carry my Dragonfly2 Salt. I would like to carry the Squeak but since it does not have a lanyard hole, it gets left behind. The second issue that it does not fit well for my purposes is the blade width. So it does not see...

Thanks for the info. That's what I was afraid of.

Do you feel that you don't have enough handle length on the Native in comparisons to the Delica? When in hand I mean.

Judging by the clip, that Rescue has seen a lot of pocket time. Thanks for sharing. I like the unique shape.

Something that makes me buy Spydies a lot more is the thought put in to designing their handles. I think I have medium sized hands and all the blades I own work really really well for me.

I won't give any comments Evil as I do not own these two knives.

Is there are reason that you havent considered the Tasman? I have the spyderedge on mine and it is a workhorse of an EDC. I primarily use it in the yard; trimming plants, cutting rope, cardboard (esp now that the town has gone to a single recycling barrel every other week). I hadnt noticed a signif...

I haven't cut anything too tough yet, some small limbs on a tree, cardboard, boxes, weeds, but it still looks new. Hopefully I can find somethingto scratch it up a little, so that it will look used. Okay and thanks. I scratched mine a few times when my hand slipped on the SM. how about food? Any ch...

I find that I walk around with my Tuff just looking for something to cut to see if it will. So far, it has cut any and everything. Definately Tuff. And I agree on the SM. Me too. I try really hard to find something to use the Tuff on. Then again, I have to balance its use during work. My bosses are...

I looked for the x-ray photo that Deacon mentioned but could not find it. I hope someone does. Then again, not sure if the tang has seen some kind of modification after that x-ray was taken.

Yeah,I forgot to mention the ATS-55 Harpy with the G-10 handle,I guess i`m slipping on my job. :o I'm afraid that the Harpy is slightly smaller than I like. I guess that only leaves me with the Civilian that is somewhat closer to my requirement. The downside is that since that it is a dedicated SD ...

Got a box through the diplomatic pouch today. I had the Tuff and Dragonfly Salt on me. Decided to use the latter to open the box up. http://i1218.photobucket.com/albums/dd411/kardinalsyn1/Snapbucket/FE69E8A2.jpg Then used the Dragonfly to unpack five packets of briefing papers.

There are some models already on the shelf. First of all they could re-release the Superhawk in full Spyderedge and I'm sure it would sell extremely well. It still blows me away that they didn't offer it up in Spyderedge when they put it in the main line up. The size of the Superhawk is just perfec...
