Uzumlubay, I live in the Philippines and I like my spydies. I have bought 90 percent of my 25 or so knives online. I made my decision as to what knife to buy mainly from the input I get from the forums. On each of my purchases, I have rolled the dice on getting a good specimen, on the item making it through the postal system of a 3rd world country(and all that that implies). I can say that I like centered blades, no blade play, and reasonably good grinds. No dealer that I have bought from have I ever asked to inspect my knives.
Having said all of that, all the knives I have received are to my satisfaction. Maybe some knives, I found are not to my taste but the quality of the product always has satisfied me.
