Topic: engraving on spydies !?
Replies: 4

The one in the picture below has the most commonly found type of engraving. These are still being done up by Spyderco and, as civilian pointed out, can be found quite often on eBay. I've seen just about every current production stainless knife except the Jester and Kiwi done up this way, but the Pol...

Topic: Opinions on ProGrip Lightweight?
Replies: 6
Views: 1061

If you are right handed, and don't mind the integral plastic clip, then the Pro-Grip is a nice knife. Otherwise either the Calypso Jr. (ultra light, quite sheeple friendly, carries tip down, ambi clip, great slicer), the Delica (tad heavier, carries tip up, ambi clip), or the Salt I (same basic size...

A larger knife with the Jester blade shape would be great, but would prefer a lock back to the compression lock myself. The Pro-Grip would be a natural starting point for something like this, as the current blade shape is already close to this, except for the forward finger rest. The only "problem" ...

If you want to stay with an under 3" blade, then the Delica or the Calypso Jr are your best choices, as they are the "longest" lefty friendly Spydercos that meet that requirement. The choice between them would depend on your normal uses for a pocket knife. If you do a lot of slicing, I'd favor the C...

Welcome to the forum FricFrac. I'd pretty much agree with Mr. Blonde's views, would add that the Native II is another good choice and is the only ambidextrous SS handled Spydie. If you really want a Delica, you might consider hunting around for one of the left hand Carbon Fiber ones, they can be set...

Well as most have said, the Delica and Endura are good choices, and both are available with either FRN (ambidexterous clip) or stainless handles (RH only clip). In FRN the Native III is another great choice, with perhaps the best ergonomics of any Spyderco and an ambi clip. If you're right handed, t...

Nice pics Ted. The only thing I question is the dating on the "All God's Critters" Dealer catalog. I know the cover say copyright 1996, but that's just the picture, which I think was used on the poster before being put on the catalog cover. The last year in "Through the years..." in it is 1997. In a...

Hi spudin, as rycen said, JFJ still does have some of the T-Shirts.

Hi Chad, the "through the years" section in my catalogs show the intro date as 1998. My best guess is that it hit the streets either very late in 98 or sometime in 99.

Hi Nicky, Sal did mention the possibility of an FRN version of the Kiwi a while back. Not sure if he envisions it with a clip or not, but it would be kind of a trick designing one to fit in the confines of the Kiwi handle. The all stainless version, which can be had for under $50, does work nicely w...
