So, on a lark, I went to that famous auction site and did a search for Spyderench. There is one for sale.
Someone asked the seller the condition and he said it was new.
In fact, he says, "I am the designer of the SpydeRench and in conjunction with Spyderco have been personally finishing this last batch of tools from my shop in California. The tool is new. It comes with instructions, but does not have a box. Thanks for your interest in the 'Rench and Good Luck! Marty Beck".
What's up with that?
