A question for Sal and those who know...

I have two Spyderco Civilians, w/ what appear to be annodized aluminum handles w/ krayton inlays for grip enhancement.

Were these the first produced? I got them at an antique store in TN, after the current models came out...

I believe the coated versions came out in 96-97.

It is off topic, but I'm intrigued - what kind of antique store was it? I wouldn't think that products with obvious modern materials (kraton, aluminum etc...) could be considered 'antique'.

Agreed, Im having trouble imagininng two c12's selling in the same environments as old typewriters and rockingchairs and all that random old crap; i go searching for shave gear in them occasionally. Its getting really rare to find a deal on anything... internet is the way to go on just about anything.

Well..they're real Spydercos...I checked that out w/ the collector verification "office" at SMKW.

I dont remember the name of the "antique" store.

They had a seperate knife section for estate collection knives, alot of old CASE products. I do remember sending my son back to SMKW w/ the new model Trailmaster I had bought that day so I could have extra cash for the Civies! I looked at the above links...both my knives are there. First ones made!!

Keepers!
