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. Not sure about production figures, but most <img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> runs are 1000 to 1200 pi...

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...

Congratulations Samo, may you and Mrs Samo share a long and happy life together. The Kiwi is a great choice, and, if you can't get your hands on one of the Kiwi holsters with the flap and little "belt" to tuck it under, I have a couple pouch type ones that Joyce sent me a while back. They look like ...

Glad to be of help Stevie, and a VERY nice shot of the BlackHawk, thanks for sharing it with us. Now you gotta show us that Herbst! As for resizing, I use the freebie version of MGI PhotoSuite that came with my camera. Most digital cameras come with it, or a "basic" version of one of the other photo...

Stevie, If you're using Village, each picture in your alblum has two hyperlinks below it, click on the one that says Image URL and Tools, then look for "HTML for an IMG Tag" and highlight and copy the block of code below that that starts with a less than sign ( < ) contains something like: img src="...

Chad, I'd venture to guess that Rycen is correct even though my 2000 catalog, the earliest one I have in which the C46 appears, shows it in Ti with an uncoated blade ATS-55, and lists it as available in PE only. My 2002 and 2003 show it only in G10, with dual liners, and a black coated ATS-55 blade ...

Hob, I agree that the Calypso Jr. is one of the real bargains of the Spyderco world. The grey FRN, fish scale texturing, and bead blasted clip combine, IMHO, to create a look that is head and shoulders above all the other FRN models. And, as you already noticed, the flat grind and thin edge make it ...

Nice bunch of new toys Swede, use them in good health! I too love the bead blasted clips and hope Sal will use them on more models in the future. They look great and seem to stand up much better in use than the black. Stevie Ray, you might want to check out <A HREF="http://www.balisongcollector.com/...

Thanks Cas and Salty, the one on the bottom right is a Pegasus, which is kind of like a stainless Navigator with a sub 2" blade. Nice little knife that never caught on for some reason. Left row, top to bottom are: a C27 Jess Horn, Santa Fe Stoneworks malachite Kiwi, jigged bone Kiwi, stainless Kiwi,...

Well, don't know if these pics will help or not, but they do show the comparitive size and thickess of the FRN Dragonfly and Calypso Jr. The size difference is obvious, the weight difference is so slight as to be almost unnoticable. In one respect the Calypso Jr. is slightly wider due to the thicker...

Couple nice catches there Chad! You've had a great <img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> hunting month. Use 'em in good health. I like the looks of the Renegade, but have yet to score one, as I'm "holding out" for a PE one and those seem to be pretty scarce.

Sounds like you had a great day my friend, in spite of the cold. Very nice finds there at a dynamite price.

Paid 2.09 a gallon here yesterday for regular, highest I've paid so far. Glad my Metro gets fifty miles to the gallon. I'm 6'2" and 240 and that little car gives me more head, leg, and "elbow" room that most of the bigger ones.

Thanks for the kind words Chad, but the kind of work you, Alex, and of course Sal, do takes a lot more talent, creativity, and skill than mine. All I'm really doing is cutting out shapes and changing the colors of them. I start with a photo of an existing knife, cut out the parts and paste them back...

Chad, I'd have to agree with Swede and Stevie Ray. I've got one of the aluminum Herbsts, and even though it is a much "better" knife than any Q, neither it nor the ti handled notched seconds are worth the kind of money even the most common Q's are bringing these days.

Took this just now, with the lock of my Chinook II disenganged and the blade just slightly short of the locked position. Think this is pretty close to the amount of depression needed to disengage the lock. A Boye dent, at least on mine, would make it into a fixed blade. Only have the one, so can't s...
