Most Abused Spyderco ever

Postby spyderwa » Mon Jul 02, 2012 12:15 am

Recently I was asked to assign values to a knife collection in an estate. When the knives finally arrived the majority were broken Old Timer knives and similar with no real value other than spare parts. There was one oddball knife in the bunch that caught my eye. This is the most abused Spyderco that I have ever found that was still functioning as a knife. Looks like a Calypso model that has been through the apocalypse. The only history that I could pick up was that the elderly gentleman that owned the knives was known to be "hard" on things. Lockup is tight with zero play in the blade. The pivot is very smooth as well. I just thought you might want to ponder what happened to this poor knife. Enjoy.
