I can understand the plastic protective
film placed on the sides of knives with
titanium side plates such as the Phoenix
but why does my Scorpius SS have the
covering on one side?
The gray Spyderco boxes are of better
quality than the Chinese red and black
boxes. Cheaper to manufacture like
most everything else. I have several
duplicate knives and one may be in the
red/black box and the other in the gray
box?? Change of box mfr's midstream?
What do the letters denote on the end
tag (LH/GH/DH) etc.?
My older Spydercos dating back to
those in simple white boxes had instructions,
warrantys etc. inside. Later boxes had
Knife Edge-U-Cation papers inside. My
newest knives have only a foam liner
and maybe a plastic sleeve in the box.
I have boxes that have an end label
applied over another end label which
was for another knife.
All this is probably irrevelant in the
scheme of things but it has been a
slow evening here while browsing the
knife forums and eBay.
