I only have one in my collection, the Spin. Great knife...excellent ergonomics for such a tiny thing. Love the blade shape too, straight edges just make sense on small knives IMO.

Those are amazing. I'd like the blade from the top one put into the handle of the bottom one.

Personally I really like the standard Police in SS, but Paul's on the money, the original Kiwi was a real winner in all stainless, engraved or not.

Wow. Those are gorgeous. The top knife appears to be saber ground on one side and full flat on the other. Is that just a trick of the lighting?

Thanks guys. Top one was engraved by Antonio Montejano of Spain and the bottom one by Marcus Hunt of the UK. They use different tools, but both are master engravers.

Bill, yes, it's just a trick of light coupled with the engraving extending past the transition between the blade flat and the grind and making it less obvious, but it's hollow ground on both sides.

I have so many of the stainless handled Spyders that I very much like. Here lately I've been carrying and using a very little known but probably the most rigid of any Spyder ever made and that being the stainless handled RESCUE model from the ATS-55 era. It's probably Spyderco's most overlooked and under-appreciated model ever IMO.

Now as far as a unique stainless handled model I would have to give a big "thumbs up" to the stainless handled C-52 Caly Jr. model. It was the only Caly Jr. model that had a hollow grind blade and one of my most favorite out of the AUS-8 era.

I only have two, but my SE Endura wins my personal favorite award. Although if I owned. Police model, that would most likely be the winner. But I am waiting for the Police 4 as my first of that line.

Dragonfly, but... it really needs to be redesigned like the FRN ones. It needs the wire clip - the current one is hard to open because of the clip's placement - too far forward. Plus, the lower jimping would be nice. If they redesigned it, then I would engrave one or two.
- best wishes, Jazz.

Hey Brother Spydutch it's great to see you here at Spyderville. There is only one thing you forgot to mention>> that your "Copilot" is definitely one with teeth. If you all think I'm over fanatical about Spyderedges then you all don't know my good friend SPYDUTCH. It was him and the honorable Dr. Hannibal Lecter MD who really sparked my insatiable, elevated interest in Spyderedged blades.

You know when you think about it probably the most iconic Spyder of them all is without a doubt the Spyderedged, stainless handled POLICE model :cool: Really when you think it through deeply it was the stainless handled Spyders that paved the way for all the great models we see now.

I also know that my good pal SPYDUTCH is also a fan of the stainless handled, serrated Hawkbill i.e. the HARPY. Spydutch is truly the ambassador of Spyderedges>> and it's great to see you posting again Brother :cool:

My favorite SS-scaled Spydie is the original Co-Pilot. Before 2001, it was generally acceptable to carry while traveling by air because of its sub-2" blade. Boy, how the world has changed...

Roman I'm very glad you put up that older/discontinued "Adventura" model that our good Brother "Dialex" designed. OH how I would love to have that model along with the Ulize in Spyderedge. And why Spyderco doesn't do some Spyderedged Sprints in blade styles they've never done them in before has me baffled. Because I think it could literally open up a new, untapped market for them.
