Yeah I guess it's not abnormal. Maybe it's just because I haven't seen them if there are, but I think the handle is unique. Country Knives has one for about $170 and there currently are non on eBay...is that about the going rate?

It's funny you say that cause I've been warehousing for 11 years so I've worked primarily with guys who aren't scared of a knife, but I've just started working a new job where there are more women not from warehousing backgrounds and they've been commenting on how intimidating the Tenacious looks. I'd never really had people cringe at my knives until now and the ironic part is they're all too cheap to go get their own knives so I'm the go to guy when they need to borrow a knife. I was carrying 3 knives at one point...my Tenacious and 2 utility knives which I used a the "guest" knives.
The "S" is funny too me. When I first saw it I thought it was ugly, but very interesting so I stared at it. Then I started getting pulled into it's webs. I think I would love to own it, but part of me wonders if I really like it or if I'm just curious.

I do like the Kopa. If it were up to the Kopa vs. the Persian I'd probably go with the Persian right now though.
Thanks again for all the links guys! I'll be checking through these websites now to see what I can get. Why isn't there a trade thread or forum here? No one wants to give up their Spydie's? Haha.
