Spyderco Army Knife

Postby v34 » Wed Jul 19, 2000 12:00 am

It is not for me to tell a company such as spyderco what to produce but in this age of multitools a return to basics would clear the opposition. Produce a Spyderco army knife such as the old swiss army knives. A good selection of blades, one with a hole maybe with a liner lock,modern zytel handles. At last i would have a pocket sized everyday tool. Please build me one.

v34 - Welcome to the Spyderco forum. Thanx for the input. We've just introduced our first multitool with the SpydeRench. Certainly a learning experience, but the results is a very efective tool.

R & D is working on a number of additonal designs. Some more complicated than others, but all with performance as the prime focus. We've not "copied" others to date, and will probably continue to "do our own thing" as in the past. Stuff comin'. Can't say what or when though.

If you will email me your mailing address, we would like to send you a gift for being our first poster on this brand new forum.

The Centofante C25 is a good profile to start with for the body of the knife and the main blade. Make it thicker, and there should be room for a can-opener, caplifter-screwdriver, and a pair of scissors. Maybe a corkscrew? All of these are are not on the SpydeRench, which is helpless in the face of food and drink. :) :)

I'm yet to see or feel a spydewrench, but IMHO - that's really original in design, real awesome looking thing too! (-;

Skip the corkscrew, cheap ones are available wherever corked wines are sold. Add a locking awl, or long locking marlinspike opposite the blade. Either tool is very useful for working with leather or rope, plus the obvious tactical use on the pommel.

This is my post from Bladeforums a couple of weeks ago.

Bring back the Syderco Laguiole, put in another backspring for a scissors or a screwdriver/bottle opener and put a corkscrew on the back. I can't remember if the Spyderco Laguiole had a hole in the blade but if not, add a low profile one like on the Native. You'd end up with kind of an improved Victorinox Waiter that could be opened with one hand and have a longer blade.

Looked for the oldest post I could find on the newest forum and found this thread and thought that the topic was still relevant.

The recent clipitools are nice but a few more options would also be nice as well. But not the the extent of a SAK .......they are already out there and great for what they are. Perhaps variations with a three "blade" max with different knives having different themes but also with larger and more useful blade shapes than your typical SAK.

How about a variation on the Dyad but with three blades. Perhaps call it the Triad: Use the Dyad blades and then add a PE Wharncliff blade.

Either that or go to a 4 blade max (I know I've just contradicted myself :eek: )
With two blades off each pivot. One PE, One SE (with additional tool - e.g., hook line cutter on back), then two additional tool blades off of each primary blade pivot. The 4 blades can nest together from either side alternating from pivot to pivot. I think that 4 blades would be the absolute max though in order to keep the width down to reasonable sizes .....this is where SAK go overboard at times where the width of the knife (with blade openings) is larger than the scale depth.

The other day I switched things up and just carried a black alox SAK Cadet at work. An idea for some kind of alox handled Spyderco crossed my mind...

Blue alox Chaparral?

I am glad to hear Sal say they are coming out with new models. I did not buy the Clipitool because I could get more in a SAK. If the newer knives were FRN or G10 and had a knife blade, bottle opener, screw drivers (2), can opener, I could be happy.

Where did you here that one? Was it an unreported Casual Bombshell?

Hi Carrot,

Probably not. Mfr was very challenging. We lost our shirts on the project. They are worth far more than they cost to buy.
