    Considering how poorly the last run of them sold, I'm not sure how anxious Spyderco would be to roll the dice on a new batch. Not sure what the minimum order would be either. I know Spyderco's...

    FWIW, the term has been around since at least the 1950's. As for "fact or urban legend", it's a bit of both, with a side order of conspiracy theory paranoia thrown in.

    Ned, back when they came out, the Mini Police had an MSRP just a couple dollars less than an all stainless Endura. The price was probably why the didn't sell well back then, I'm fairly sure Spyderco...

    I cannot think of a single "rule" regarding Spyderco knives to which there is not at least one exception. FWIW, there was also a red "live blade" Endura, but that was before there were any trainers....

    Sticky: Kiwi Sextet

    Over the years, many Spyderco knives have become platforms for embellishment and I have always found the Kiwi particularly well suited to it. The six shown here represent the work of as many...

    Pretty sure the power lock has a higher parts count than the implementation of the midlock in the current Delica. Adding complexity inevitably adds cost. On a knife with a 4mm thick, or thicker,...
