OH no! Dude you're making a mistake there. Because sometimes when you try to seek out an old, collectible Spyder that might be all that's available.
That was what I was looking for without attempting to and avoiding lead the witness. Thanks Deacon I was wondering if they were the earliest releases. For the prices on the Secondary market for some of these... No Thank You Very Much!!The Deacon wrote: ↑Sat May 04, 2019 4:18 am
Some find them more desirable, some find them less desirable, some don't care one way or the other.
On the positive side:
If you're concerned about counterfeits, a CC# is a pretty good guarantee you're getting a genuine Spyderco.
For those whose knives might be stolen, a CC# gives them a positive way of identifying their knife.
On the negative side:
The "bug" is bad enough, a CC# adds one more bit of unnecessary clutter to the blade.
A CC# means you're getting an early example of that model. So, in essence you're a beta tester.

and come on what is a small embossed number on the heel of the blade going to do to affect the performance of the knife if you find one you really want to use?
I have a lot of units with the collector number on them ( collector pieces & users) and personally I could care less either way.
