That was also my understanding. It does not look like he is out of business by either poor sales or choice, but rather the inability to meet the requirement of a brick & mortar store.JNewell wrote:Reading Tom's email, it looks like the problem was that Spyderco requires dealers to have a brick and mortar store, and the building he was using as a dealer became unavailable, which has led to him having him having to termintate (or, maybe more hopefully suspend? - but there was nothing about that in Tom's email) his dealer status. Here's hoping he'll be back soon. He's been a fabulous resource, and if he doesn't make it back he will be very much missed.

I'm an admirer of Spyderco's designs. Using them is like immersing yourself in music or studying a painting in a museum. I buy some "fine" art but my preference is for usable art.
