O.K. I keep getting beat out on ebay on one of these great multi-tools.
Part of the reason is because Sal has said he wants to bring out a new improved version. This leads to hesitation in my bidding.
Any intelligence on the release of the new Spyderench? I can be patient and waited out the Trakker/Lynks, Ocelot thing..(worth the wait) on the other hand if the Spyderench isn't going to be reintroduced I ought to up my bids the old model.
In my pickup truck everyday I carry the Spyderench and my Victorinox Swiss Tool. I find myself using them quite a bit. They are truly my "one, two punch" tool-wise. Most of the time what one won't do the other will. I can't wait until a new model of the Spyderench will be released.
Did the release of the R2 cause the prices of original Rs to drop? Did the release of the ZDP Caly Jr lower the price of VG-10 ones?
My point is, even if (and I'd rate that as a VERY big if) a new version of the 'Rench shows up a few months from now, the original ones are uncommon enough that you would probably be able to recoup all, or at least most, of your investment. You might even get lucky and make a couple bucks. Plus, you would have something you can use right now, whereas there is no guarantee an improved version will ever be released.
It is getting closer. KnifeCenter just posted news about the SHOT shwo saying:
"The Shooting Hunting and Outdoor Trade show just ended with some great new products being announced. Spyderco will offer their Endura and Delica models with the Emerson WAVE opening device in the near future. Also available from them will be the return of the Spyderwrench."
Good news for many!

I have just received my 'Wrench!!
A bit of rust on the driver bits, but overall, seldom used!
It seems that apart from the factory edge, the blade has not been sharpened!
I will have the entire tool Ti Nitrided... Gold Spiders!!!
