Hi Kahlua. Titanium is an element. #22 on the periodic table. There are several companies making Titanium kitchen knives and folding knives with Titan as a blade (That I'm aware of). There are many companies and individuals using Titan as a handle material or a liner material. Often when used as a l...

Hi John. Stropping brings out and forms a "wisp" of a burr. This is what works best in shaving face hair. Anything harder than a hair that hits that burr will bend or break it. One NEVER feels the edge of a razor with their fingertip or they damage the burr and the person shaving has to go back to s...

Hi Cerulean. Interesting question. Most of our models are under 3". That seems to satisfy both legal and "intimidation" problems in a general society. Many of us like a blade in the 4" range for overall general use (food, utility, etc). This combination of sub 4"and sub 3" serves most of the market....

Hi Pertinax. It is much debated issue at this time and we're not sure of the "best & proper" way to handle these pieces. The Matriarch was originally produced for So Africa as an exclusive. We are concerned about selling them in the USA so we restrict them (at this time) to Law enforcement professio...

SgtMike. My reference was to Oregon's and Florida's "legal to make & own" automatic knife laws. I must, however, ask that you avoid any racial comments on this forum. Spyderco distributes knives to many countries where intelligent discriminating ELUs appreciate our efforts...including Pakistan. Than...

Hi Joel. The custom shop concept is really not practical. moving a clip is much more difficult than simply changing handle material. Perhaps there is a custom maker out there that would like the job? We could refer customers to them. Regarding the "bits of info". It often causes trouble if I "leak" ...

JYork. It really depends on the model and the maker. It also depends on the additional tooling involved. With some steels, there are large minimum quantities or long lead times. No hard and fast rules.

Hi dePaul. Sometimes the "opinions" of many is a "guess" at best. First of all, there is only one other manufacturer that at this time (to my knowledge) is using CPM440V, and that is Kershaw. They followed our lead. We developed grinding wheels (2 years) which they simpy ordered from our supplier. T...
