Thank you Allen!

Hello everyone!



Today I went to pick up my mail to the P.O. Box office. I was happily surprised by an envelope from El Paso, TX containing Spyder Santa's gift! A KIWI!!!!!!!!! <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>



Allen, thank you very, very much. This little knife is a work of art! Another EDC, and with a special meaning from a forum friend. <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>



My quick KIWI opinion: Nice and small EDC, clipless, elegant, wonderful for small to medium tasks (medium elephant-sized tasks, of course <img src="tongue.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>), easy to carry in trouser, vest, sweater pockets. This knife is a MUST for any Spyderco collector. It's razor sharp out of the envelope (and out of the box). Rugged, old-fasioned, but upscaled look. I LOVE IT!



I am practicing opening it one-handed, since it's a bit smaller than a Mouse or a Cricket, but I am learning quickly. I don't have the support of a clip for quick opening, but with practice I am sure I will improve.



I am including a photo so you can see the scale next to a Cricket and a Mouse. Second photo is me as a happy Spydie owner. <img src="tongue.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>



Spyderco did it again! A high quality knife and a blend of old and new in a nice little package! <img src="wink.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>



<img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> RULZ!

Oh, and, a quick reminder to everyone that the envelope came from El Paso, TX directly from Glasshart's (Classy Glassy) shop! <img src="wink.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> <img src="tongue.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>

Blades,

Thank you. <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> I am enjoying it very much! It's such a classy knife! I am liking the straight blade edge as well. Very useful for opening letters. This is a knife for definite show-off. My husband is eyeing it suspiciously. <img src="wink.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>

Nice! Thanks for posting the pics. I had the impression that the Kiwi was bigger until now. Enjoy your new <img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>.
