OK maybe this topic's been thrashed, but if so, it hasn't been recent.
Where or how did you first hear about Spyderco knives?
I know for myself, it was about 3 years ago in Dick Marcinko's (Former commander of SEAL Team 6) "Rogue Warrior" series, specifically "Designation Gold:"
"He dropped all his gear except for the AK, and held his hand out. 'I'll need a knife.'
Wonder pulled a large Spyderco folder from the inside of his waistband. 'Try this.'
'Believe me, I will,' Koby said."
That sent me scurrying to the 'net to find out what the hell a Spyderco was... and the rest is history. <img src="wink.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>
