    I absolutely can't wait for this one to get to the house. Thank goodness I went all pre-order happy a while ago.

    I am happy to see this, but must ask why no tip up carry?

    How bout that... I didn't even notice that there is no tip up carry option. Now I like this knife even more!

    That is curious. Maybe Masaad Ayoob just prefers tip down.

    With practice the Spydie-drop opening is faster that way. I need to practice but can see it.

    Also, you don't risk spearing your hand if the blade opens a tad in your pocket... but the spydie drop thing is cool, I can believe it.

    Mas Ayoob is a self-confessed old-school "Clipiteer". For him (and me as well) the Spyderdrop opening method is faster.
    I don't believe in safe queens, only in pre-need replacements.

    I love it, I can't wait to get one. Bad year to get into Spydercos. I just about finished getting all of the ones I wanted from last year and then this year has so many good ones, I can hardly keep up! I won't even start on the ones I missed completely. Let's just hope they keep reissuing the good ones as sprints or I would be totally broke.

    This is one of a few old Spydies that I've been lusting for since first seeing them. Found a C44 Dyad at a pawn shop a few months ago, and just ordered the Ayoob. Good year.

    I used to always carry tip down and then converted for some reason. Both have advantages and disadvantages. The problem that I have is that I like to have ONE way locked into my subconscious, just in case i ever need to get to it quickly in an emergency.

    I like tip down for certain knives. The Ayoob is one of those.

    I'm so happy about this sprint run. This is one old Spydie that has eluded me so far.

    Have one in the mail!
    Anyone know the size of the run?

    Took me forever to find this one a couple years ago in P/E.



    More S90v & CF please.......

    This is just one of those knives that makes me say "wow." Like the Yojimbo 2, I have no realistic use case for this knife, yet feel compelled to own one.

    It almost makes me wish for a zombie apocalypse.

    It does have a real wow factor. Quite practical too (like the Yo2) as the blade shape works for normal tasks. It's hardly...ahem...subtle. Looks like something out of Prince of Persia.

    I had a Captain and loved it but was frustrated in use more than starstruck at the cool design. Weird knives with sharp tips and comfy handles seem to always work as well as they look.
