    I live in a state that repealed essentially all of its knife restrictions a few years ago (thank you, Representative Coffey), and I still like this design quite a bit. Maybe it's just a novelty...

    The Street Beat is one of my all-time favorites. I love the ergos of it, and as you've mentioned, the handle scales are beautiful: a micarta-lover's dream. (I wish the Street Bowie had followed suit,...

    This is a beautiful photograph, and unlike any I've ever seen. If not for all the discontinued models, it would make an excellent calendar cover.

    Thank you for taking the time to comment, Mr. Schempp. I hope it's clear from all the posts that you have a considerable fan base in the Spyderco world.

    Best,

    I didn't mean to imply that Mr. Schempp designed any of the others that have been mentioned. (As an aside, the Shabaria and Chokwe are two of my favorites!)

    It's a fair enough point. And if we go by Oxford's definition of "ethnic," you may be right:

    Heh, thanks. Never miss out on an opportunity to fondle your knives, I say. (Although not too loudly, because it tends to scare people.) Seriously, I appreciate the info.

    Ha, interesting question. I'm not quite sure how people have come to the conclusion that a knife wouldn't be useful in space, though. Back in the 60s, Randall and astronaut Gordon Cooper designed the...

    Maybe this is stating the obvious, but even though the ceramic rods don't wear out, they do fill up with steel particles, which reduces their effectiveness. In my experience, it eventually gets to...

    This knife has been on my wish list for a long time, and I had no idea that this was the case. Guess I always just assumed it was the same as the C83 and C105. Do any other Spyderco models use buffed...

    Wow, great info! I won't presume to know if there any errors or omissions, since I'm not exactly a Centofante expert, but it certainly is useful.

    Maybe this is too much to ask, but can anyone...
