Are there any laws that prevent this from being a possibility? I've wanted to buy one for a long while, but the quality leaves something to be desired. I've seen folding trench knives that suit my fancy, but once again, I bet Spyderco could do it better. Basically I'm just dreaming of a Spyderco trench knife, folded or fixed.
There is much to be learned from one who never speaks
shiny footprints......lol not sure if a trench knife fits their motto. Plus it would be very hard to sell those as brass knuckles and the like are illegal quite a few places. I don't see spyderco venturing this way. However with that being said....I'd definitely buy one if they made it as Kansas just lifted ALL of their fixed blade, auto and butterfly laws!
In the mean time Bradley, pick yourself up a warrior. Sick double edged out of the ordinary knife with super comfortable grip/reverse grip!

Hmmm. I had to go look up pics of the "trench knife" as well. This is different that what I assumed it was. I had in mind something like a Japanese Hori-Hori used for digging, trenching or gardening...
All knife laws and all knife bans should be ended across the board, permanently, and forever, and allow people to carry any kind of knife they want. The idea of a Spyderco Trench Knife is beautiful. I can already envision it in my mind: FRN handles with some fluting or checkering for a sure grip, full-tang blade, the steel would be VG-10, H-1, or something, and would be a one-piece double or single edged blade with optional serrations, perhaps saber-ground, and one piece with a knuckleduster grip with holes large enough for any sized fingers, and, a skull-crusher butt.
Put some brass knuckles on the Spyderco Warrior and be done with it. I do not believe a trench knife would be that far off from either the warrior, szabo or the tatanka for me. I will be passing on all of them. Different strokes for different folks.

Also, do you think a kangaroo would eat a bowl of spagetti with sauce if someone offered it to them?
Uh oh, I guess everyone should be really embarrassed about Spyderco. The Warrior was designed by some of the most hard core killing machines the world has ever seen.
I have two of them (shiny and black)
Not to mention the fairly constant stream of MBC designs, including the Yojimbo.
Brass knuckles are very limiting, but the rest of the concept of a "combat knife" can translate to utility use quite well, really for the majority of things that need being cut the type of knife you have is almost irrelevant, "sharp" is pretty much the only qualifier.
I'd love to see a lightweight 9" hog sticker in H-1. 1/8" thick with either a spear point and deep wide hollow grind, or a full on dagger with one side getting the full SE treatment. I particularly appreciate having both PE and SE on the same blade with the Warrior.
