I got a special delivery this week, thought I'd share some pictures while I'm watching a new sneak preview video on Nick Shabazz's channel (the Brouwer looks great, the Mantra 3 makes me think of a beefed up Delica, and the McBee looks impressively small and yet somehow still ergonomically well thought out). I'm pretty curious as to how the Amalgam is gonna be received with the good bad and ugly
Anyway, special shout out to Alex for all his help and patience dealing with me, and thanks to him, Eric, and the rest of the Spyderco team for fulfilling this knife nerd's dream.
Having Eric's signature on the blade really means a lot to me; I have a lot of respect for him and his designs, and he was very encouraging to me in whatever limited conversations I've had with him. So if anyone from Spyderco is reading, thanks again guys!
I also got a little nostalgic and thought I'd dig up the different models I made for comparison with the earliest iteration at the bottom and the final result up top. It's kinda fun to look back and trace the evolution of the design.
