Hi, I'm new to Spyderco. I just ordered a Para-Military 2 from thespydercostore.com and have been pretty pleased with the purchase, although the knife wasn't as sharp as I thought it would/should be.
After ordering from thespydercostore.com, I stumbled upon an older thread here that was critical of that site (ca. 2006). Have things changed for the better since then? It's not that I want to deny the official Spyderco site my business, but if I can find official Spyderco knives cheaper from larger retailers, I'm going to go that route.
What are your suggestions?
Also, if Spyderco knives are purchased from retailers besides Spyderco, are their warranties still valid?
