The reason that the Spyderedged Military and SE ParaMilitary both were deleted from the main line up was indeed due to low sales. And there has been a time in the past 10 years that Spyderco's Spyderedged models lost their appeal from the public. But with some new Spyderedged models like the Jumpmaster, Aqua Salt along with a couple of other great Spyderedged models I've seen them catapulting in popularity recently. I'm seeing a change in attitude and seeing a renewed interested not only here on the forum but I do believe more people are discovering how good Spyderedged blades work. Also considering that many of their iconic folder models like the Police, Harpy, Endura, Delica are all gaining new fanfare as well I think we are on the verge of seeing a new upsurge in demand for Spyderedged blades.
I've actually converted my boss and a couple of other guys here at work by just loaning them one of my SE Spyders for a day and it amazed me how they fell in love with them. I've got one guy even wanting to buy my older 440V SE Native in spite of the years of usage it's had
. If Spyderco could get their dealers to come up with some sort of a test driving program by letting the prospective buyers actually use a serrated Spyderco blade for a day or so I do believe that many people would lose their negative pre-conceived notions about serrated blades. They would discover first hand that not all serrated blades are created equal and that Spyderco's SE blades are truly great cutting tools.
You would not only have the Military and Paramilitary return in Spyderedge but you would see a resurgence in SE models all across the board >> I'm absolutely sure of it.
Using and seeing the amazing results you can obtain with a high quality Spyderedged blade is truly what made me a believer and fan of Spyderco's great serrated blades. Don't believe me>> test drive one for yourself and see
We are going to see a resurgence in popularity I'm certain of it.
