THE BACON for spyderco w/ this longtime customer!!
Recently, after a absence of 2 yrs purchasing from the Spyderco line I bought a knife that turned out to be of usual Spydie quality, but was in fact a factory error.
Sal, Kristi and the Spydie team jumped over hoops tryin' to get me to return the little "mutant" SchemmpRock, but so far it has performed as well as the other user Spydies in my collection. I decided to keep it.
Placing an order w/ poorfish.com for a Pacific Salt, I decided to give the guys in "spydie japan" 1 last shot.
I have to say my Pacific in H1 w/ spyderedge is a wonderful little pocket knife. Lightweight and sharp are not words I would use to describe it.
More like "inconsequential weight and OMG SCARY SHARP!" are totally accurate.
Fit/finish excellent. Blade thickness appealing though this isnt a prybar...and I wont be thinking of using it for such.
I would have prefered a titanium liner for the "yeller" FRN handles, for added strength, but it isnt really necessary.
Opens and closes as smooth as silk w/ addition of Ballistol lubricant. Pocket clip is basic but very tight and functional.
I sweat alot in the hot summers here in sc: some of my other stainless folders will come home w/flash rust in the workings, or on the furnishings after 1 days exposure to my caustic skin.
So thanks Spyderco for a great knife. Heard people say they were dissapointed w/this blade because "H1 was hard to sharpen" and dulled too quick...Then they revealed they were cutting copper cables w/it!!
To those people I say "Get some wire cutters, a STSM, and a life"
RESPECT THE BLADE!!

I wonder if spyders feel that way too??--mark.
