About the Spyderco Forum
The Spyderco Forum is available for open discussion and the free exchange of opinions and ideas relating to Spyderco products, philosophies and related topics. Postings are saved and can be viewed until deleted. The postings are not edited for content, style or factual errors.

Like the community you live in, the Spyderco Forum works best when everyone follows basic standards of conduct. Your privilege to use and contribute to discussions depends on your compliance with the following guidelines. The Spyderco Forum Administrators and Moderators may revoke your registration privileges and/or take any other appropriate measures to enforce these guidelines if violations are brought to our attention.

Spyderco Forum Guidelines
As a Spyderco Forum Member you are entirely responsible and liable for all activities conducted through your Account. Listed below are some, though not all, violations that may result in terminating your Account. By registering a Spyderco

  • Do not post any material that violates copyright laws.
  • In an attempt to respect the extreme diversity of our members, we ask that you do not start or participate in any discussions relating to religion or politics.
Links in signatures are allowed, however links must lead to sites whose primary content is relevant to the content on our Forum. Spyderco Administrators and Moderators will hold final say in determining relevance and will remove links accordingly.

Posting links to images: If a member has to click on a link that takes them to any site other than an image sharing site or your own site the link will be removed. If you are linking to an image on your own site, it must be done so in a manner that the link is directly to the image, not to the site.

Spyderco Forum reserves the right to monitor some, all, or no areas of Spyderco Forum for adherence to these Rules or other rules that may be published from time to time. You acknowledge that by providing you with the ability to distribute your content, Spyderco Forum is acting as a passive conduit for such distribution and Spyderco Forum is not undertaking any obligation or liability relating to any content or activities in a topic area.

Spyderco Forum Disclaimer
By posting to a Message Board you agree that Spyderco Forum can display, modify, transmit, distribute or delete your posting without needing further permission from you. Spyderco Forum does not edit postings and is not responsible for the content of posted comments or images. Postings may be removed by Spyderco Forum at any time at their sole discretion.
