Agree, it looks massive, it makes the Millie look like a Caly ! :)

Here's a Farid custom K2 next to a slightly...'adjusted' Mili, and a Szabo. Looks like the Spydie has a bit more height to the blade, and slightly squarer shoulders on the frame profile.

Apologies for the poor photo quality.

The Spydie K2 looks real good, I'm gonna have to get me one when they come out. Maybe two.

You may need to consider pre-treating yourself with ibuprofen before starting tests!

Well it's wearing me out on the rope cutting.... LOL

It's doing very well. :spyder:

It's pretty much this, Sal wanted us to test it.

He and a few other folks are knife testers (with a structured and scientific process). I'm sure Sal wants feedback from a few who are known to shred cutting materials for joy and education alone.

I hate it when I have to buy a knife I will likely never carry based purely on Sals character...

(Not the first time, and I'm sure it won't be the last...)

Pre-order at GPknives, but I don't know them. Anyone got a good price for Canadian shipping?

Edit:
I realized GPknives offer USPS first class to canada for 9.99, which makes it 20$ lower then Howes. Anyone who dealt with them knows if they are reliable? About to pre-order mine :P

Wow, congrats to spyderco for delivering this design with extreme steel for a very affordable price. This one doesn't float my boat, but those who are seeking this design are sure to be tickled pink.

Thanks man! Normally I don't check there for current models, but if I can scrounge up the cash I'll be ordering from there. Man you saved me about $30, I was almost gonna pull the trigger on Howes

Nice!! Howes has the Slysz up too! I'm curious why the smaller Slysz bowie costs almost $50 more than the much larger K2...
