OLD BROCHURES ANYONE???

Postby LouisSeacamp » Mon Apr 06, 2020 9:18 am

Here's a couple of old brochures I found in a box with MY OLD TRAINERS!
All in all I did learn how to handle a blade, but I still prefer a Seecamp, especially at my age.!

No problem, if you look at one of my other postings EARLY 90's VINTAGE TRAINER you can see what I trained with. I have so many brochures and catalogs
from the old days from old SHOT Show stuff down to the original Triangle Sharpmaker instructions!! Hell I even have one of the original "All God's Critters" Poster's!

Glad to see some people still like the stuff from the past!!!

I got stuff from the beginning of Spyderco, and I mean the beginning. Getting ready to pass some of my old stuff on to the younger generation who will keep it real.

Thank you for the photos.

I love the old catalogues and brochures. I have a reasonable collection now. I will take some pics later. I started buying Spyderco in the 90s so the history really interests me.

I am re-organising my workshop at the moment, Louis.
As I find stuff, I will set it aside.

I have three trees to chop down today, because SHE said so... :)

Very cool! Thank you for sharing these--especially the old-school "Martial Blade Craft" logo! I still remember sitting in the office of Spyderco's graphic artist helping to design that...

I also have some "American Blade" magazines in my stash of classic stuff... before "Blade Magazine" became "Blade Magazine"...

LouisSeacamp, I am also a Seecamp fan. My personal Seecamp was one of several carried by the late, great Col. Rex Applegate. He was the foremost modern proponent of point shooting (unsighted fire using kinesthetic indexing) and loved the Seecamp because it had no sights. Mine is a .25 (the Colonel also carried .32s) and was one of the ones he typically carried in his back pocket. Most of his personal Seecamps had one cracked grip panel because of the way he carried them.

I wish we could all sit in the same room, share our collections, and drink a nice bottle of Single Malt...

Stay safe,

Mike
