I just wanted to say thank you to Spyderco for making exceptional products. Feels appropriate that my first post is a grateful one. I live in Canada, and it's a little harder to get spyderco knives up here.. it's all buck and Gerber products in every major retailer. I'm just not a fan. When I was younger my dad had a spyderco delica. Which I fell in love with. I recently found a local retailer - www.reliks.com
here in my city that sells spyderco knives. As you can imagine I immediately picked up Delica, quickly followed by a Tenacious, Reselience, Alcyone, Ambitious and an Endura.
It wasn't really until I grabbed a Manix2 G-10 s30v that i truly fell in love with what spyderco is - innovation. I then seen a design that I fell in love with - the Sliverax. Getting a knife with a flipper design in Canada ain't that easy either so I was surprised to see it in person here in my hometown. I saved up and paid the rather high ($260cad) price. This is my knife though, the one that I really fell in love with.
On a little side note I also wanted to say that I'm a lefty so I've really had to learn to adapt to alot of knives ( Sliverax - compression lock ) and I have. Recently I bought a left handed PM2 and wow, just wow. Fit and finish from Golden is great, right on par with Taichung imho. Just want to finish this post where I started... Thank you Sal, Eric and everyone at spyderco for making knives the unique and innovative way you do. Also thanks for not forgetting us Lefty's.
