Spyderco Province FB45GP

Postby Archimedes » Wed Sep 11, 2019 2:16 pm

This knife hits all the right buttons for me. It falls in line with what I feel a fixed blade you are going to use should feel like. Excellent balance. Handle feels great. This knife just screams use me and I will. It is a big knife. I am excited.

Cant wait to check out the steel. I will check back into this thread when it gets some use.

Anyone else picked one up?

Cant wait to play with this one. I will probably pick up a thermoplastic sheath for it.

This beauty is literally razor sharp from the factory. The final product turned out extremely top tier.

You must be happy.

I wish I could pick one up.. little out of my price range.

Just started a new job. Moneys tight. I absolutely love the province, looks amazing. The perfect knife.

Looking forward to getting this knife! Maybe if I'm good Santa will put one under my tree...just purchased a 4V mule and have the St. Nick's para 3 4V. Might as well make it a trifecta.

Such a beautiful knife Ankerson!

guy, I’m tipping you haven’t been married too long or maybe not long enough.

Anyhow, try this and for the extra cost of a bunch of flowers, some gift wrapping, ribbon and a card you’ll have your Province quick smart.

Buy the knife and gift wrap it, along with a bunch of flowers and a nice card professing undying love and profound gratitude for your wife.

Give her the lot as an unexpected gift and she’ll be rapt, until she sees the knife of coarse. I should add, discreetly put a little distance between her and yourself as she unwraps her gift and an escape route probably won’t hurt either as you don’t want to be stabbed.

When she unwraps the knife and voices her displeasure at your gift, which she will, it’s important for you to act as hurt and disappointed as you possibly can. Ask here if she liked the flowers and card at least and tell her you may as well keep the knife seeings as she didn’t like it. :cool:
