Wow thanks Deacon. That's a new one to me.The Deacon wrote:It's a FlatIron Folder, made by Spyderco exclusively for Ironstone. Not sure whether or not Spyderco owned Ironstone at the time, know they did at one point. It's a pretty rare bird.
YVW, If you go to Ted's page of catalog downloads and grab the 1998 Ironstone catalog (panning for knives on the cover) it's in there, along with a bunch of other Ironstone exclusives.Bluntrauma wrote:Wow thanks Deacon. That's a new one to me.

I think he's plain ol' ignorant!! I have a notion to offer him 15 cents for it!!The Deacon wrote:Seller is either ignorant, and assuming spider on sheath = Spyderco, or a bit smarter and figuring his POS knife will get more hits if Spyderco is in the auction title.
Yep, the seller is a Collectors Club member, received the Woodcraft exclusive, and is selling it. Aside from the him getting a bit mixed up an listed the steel from the latest Mule, the listing, and the knife are totally legit. Steel is actually S30V, which can be seen if you look at the photos in the listing. Knife is similar to the Mules but also very different and, as I mentioned, was made as an exclusive for Woodcraft, a chain of woodworking supply stores. What makes this a bit amusing is that Woodcraft's first ads for the knife also listing the steel incorrectly, in that case as S90V.Bluntrauma wrote:Woodcraft knife?
