Topic: Your "all around carry" Spydie
Replies: 36

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...

Dynarider raises a valid point that I had not considered, regarding the possibility of damage to other items, although personally, I never carry anything else in the same pocket with my knife. Regarding slots or lightening holes, I wonder, if these have to be machined, where the break point would be...

Natives come in 4 basic flavors, but there are some additional handle variants as well. BRK 1st Generation Native - considered by many not to be a "real" Spyderco Native, these consist of Spyderco marked blades made by Camillus in a FRN handle, and originally made for and sold by Blue Ridge Knives. ...

I use a shoulder carry bag that was really designed for carrying a laptop computer as my pack, it carries all my "work related junk" (spare pen, mechanical pencil and spare leads, hiliters, laser pointer, couple of blank 3.5" floppies, calculator, notepad, and office papers when needed) as well as a...

From the lack of "official" answers to similar questions from myself and others regarding clip screws for other models, I've come to the conclusion that the size and thread pattern may vary from batch to batch within a model as well as from model to model. IMHO, the easiest and safest solution would...

Introduced in '95, discontinued either in '99 or 2000 (they are in the '98 catalog but not in the 2000 and I don't have a '99). Handles are unlined G10. Clip is set up for RH tip down carry only, it is positioned behind the pivot pin making the knife ride very high in the pocket. Handle design is as...

My opinions, based strictly on handle ergonomics of models I own, and colored to some extent by my left-handedness, YMMV: The "Great Ones": Native III - if I knew I was going to spend the day cutting up a ton of boxes or carpet, and could only bring one knife, this would be it. FRN Native - almost a...

What if...

Just had a little brainstorm, or maybe a brainfart, only time and the opinions of other spydie junkies will tell which it is. From what I've read here and elsewhere, many of us like the solid feel of a stainless steel handle, but wish it was less slippery. While filing my nails a few minutes ago I t...

You are right Clay, and it's even worse for a southpaw that shares your tastes in knives. Just have to hope the Kopa makes it off the drawing board and into the lineup. Alan, I agree with you on the Persian, although I'm still hoping that the production version will be set up for L/R tip down carry....

PE works best for the things I normally do with a pocket knife (trying to visualize what it would be like to peel an apple with a spyderedge), and it's easy to sharpen. Mostly a case of it being what I'm use to.

Buck; I carried a 501 for almost twenty five years before discovering Spydercos. It still locks up tight and takes a good edge, but Spydies are just so much easier to open. In addition, their original Fillet knife is my favorite carving knife, and my close to forty year old Caper my favorite paring ...

There are two prime reasons for these laws. First, is that there is a natural tendency among lawmakers to attempt to solve problems (real or imagined) by passing laws against things.

Oh yeah, I could go for that, think the 2000 and 2003 catalog covers would make great T-shirt art too!

VW, pretty sure the artwork from that poster was used on the '98 dealer catalog cover, have one here.

Well, since you already have stainless, G-10, FRN and aluminum handled Spydies, my suggestion would be to go for either a jigged bone, titanium or micarta handled one. The Kiwi in jigged bone is a sweet little gent's knife with excellent workmanship that gives the look and feel of an traditional poc...

When I first saw a picture of the C27 Horn, I knew I had to have one. I bought mine on eBay for $270 about two months ago after watching a couple go for well over that. The last one that sold there brought less, and my only regret is that I could not justify buying a second one, or it would have sol...
