AET, I got mine on eBay, via a BIN, from razorsharpknives (Sawyer Cutlery). Their price was pretty much unbeatable at 79.95 plus shipping, and I've dealt with them before so it was an easy choice. Every one they've put up so far has sold on a BIN, most within a few hours. Think most of the internet ...

Hi MJ, just took a couple quick ones of mine, used the Kiwi for size comparison. When you consider that the steel, quality and MSRP of these two knives is identical, the Persian is a real bargain.

Stevie, being single I wouldn't have that particular scenario to worry about, athough I'd probably shoot myself if I spent that kind of bucks and then did not like the knife. As far as the BIN price goes, from everything I've read, Jess Horn is one of the select handful of makers who's work can comm...

My Persian just arrived!

Checked the mailbox about an hour ago. It was the third time I'd checked it today and I'd just about given up hope. Considering I only purchased it with an eBay BIN on Thanksgiving Day it really was a stretch to even think it might get here today. But, thanks to super fast shipping by Sawyers, and e...

Like the others said, Patrick, go for it. I'd lean toward a concave thumb ramp, as in Alex's revision, but you can always start with the convex, slap a couple pine scales on it temporarily, see how it feels, and revise if needed. Always easier to subtract metal than to add it. Best of luck with the ...

DR, my stainless one did not come with a box, so no clue as to what the box may have looked like or been marked. Didn't get one with the white micarta either. On the other hand, my C34, and one of my C38's came in plain white boxes (just the model name and number, a barcode and a date), my other C38...

Stevie, just checked out both my micarta Horns and my JD Smith, no side play in any of the clips. Do know what you're talking about as the clip on my G10 Black Hawk does that. IMHO, based on observations made when removing clips from a few Spydercos, the screws used with a given clip vary from model...

If it's a painted clip, I'd bet the old model railroader's standby, brake fluid, would work. No worry about scratching the metal that way.

Thanks for the replies, and the pictures recoil and chinook. Beginning to look like my quest for Horns won't be over for a while. That's three so far that I hadn't seen before; the black micarta "baby" and the burgundy and white flat ground versions of the 34.

Just got a little "Horn"ier

Added another Spyderco Jess Horn to my collection. Sniped a sweet little stainless "baby Horn" on eBay Tueday nite, found it waiting in my mailbox when I got home from work today. Which brings me to a question. There's the C27 in jigged bone, the C34 in black micarta, the C38 in black FRN, the AG Ru...

Don't feel bad David, we all went through the "What the heck are these folks talking about" stage. Spydercos, as you have found out do have a language of their own, although some of the terms you mention are more general. Ok, so here goes... swedge - as used by me, this is another term for "false ed...

Thanks for the info Ed, and thanks even more for designing what, IMHO, is one of the best looking Spydies ever. Not an easy trick designing something that combines functionality with grace and eye appeal, but you sure nailed it on this one. Now if my fellow southpaws and I can just bully Sal into ma...

The burgundy micarta Jester on my keyring is pretty much never out of reach. The ones I carry in my pockets get rotated a lot, but the jigged bone Kiwi probably gets carried the most often on work days and my S30V Native on weekends.

Thanks Java, I did notice the G10 Native with the root beer inlay on Johns site back when I got my PE Rescue, PE stainless Calypso Jr, and PE Pegasus from him. Passed on it for two reasons. First, to place some limit on the rather obscene amount of money I've been spending on Spydies lately, I've tr...

Jeff and Boxer, thanks for filling in some the handle variants I glossed over and the marking that accompany some of them. Thanks again Jeff for the heads up on the GIN-1 blades, have not seen one of those yet myself, so did not realize they existed. Out of curiosity, since they are early production...
