Thanks Ookami. I have never seen anyone put up the 2 different variations. I have 2 of the ones which you can take apart with a jeweler's phillips screwdriver. I have heard that the riveted ones can be worked on though.
I have put the Shabaria higher on my top 10 list of favorite Spyders. It used to be 10 I have moved it up to 6. That blade is a classic in the TRUEST sense. IF I had 8 of them in my collection it wouldn't be too many.
If anyone knows which was the first folder to be graced with VG-10 blade steel I wish someone would tell me. I have heard from one guy that it was the big C-54 Calypso. I heard on Bladeforums that it was the Massad Ayoob. I heard from another Forum brother that it was this knife the Shabaria. IF anyone knows which it was I would like to know.
The Shabaria is a design of Engineering genius
