    This knife has to be an April Fools joke by Sal. I mean who in their right mind would use giant slabs of titanium and and make a blade as thick as a magazine. It makes no sense.....no sense at all.
    The sarcasm was basically dancing buck naked for me (the excessive disbelief made it obvious). The Techno is an awesome knife; in fact, it is going to be my next spyderco purchase. Your description of how solidly it is built just makes me want to get this even sooner. Yeah, ZTs are awesome, but I love Spyderco's willingness to try out many blade steels.

    Is it because no one ever tried or because it is an obscure reference?

    Yeah the Techno is super robust...it's built like a brick s***house (Some construction language snuck through there). I bought one a few days ago, and carried it from the moment it left the store in my pocket. This thing is going to see a LOT of pocket time. It's not threatening or intimidating when you pull it out, and almost everyone that sees it can't fail to notice the quality of the materials, or the beautiful finish...even non-knife people (Though most still balk at the cost when I tell them what it's worth...but you get what you pay for, and these are high end materials).

    It was because you bought a Techno and your ZT reference which are beefy enough to be used as screwdrivers just taking a stab at a humorous/ sarcastic tone to harmonise with the thread. Not that I think a knife should be used in that way, though, how you use them is your business. Just saw in your sig you do have a varied collection but I hope you see the humor.

    Wow, a couple of you would probably be better off just not posting at all if all you're going to do is insult. So the OP's sarcasm wasn't clear, that makes it a dumb thread? Where's the comradery of just being Spyderco or knife lovers in general? Maybe take up knitting and join a knitting forum instead, it might mellow you out a bit. Jeesh!
    Screwdriver, I wasn't 100% sure if your intent was sarcasm either but I'm glad you're enjoying your knife.

    LOL I can imagine seeing some grannies getting hostile over who's sweater is nicer and using their knitting needles as shanks. Seriously though, some of us here need to lighten up a bit. I've seen several forums go down hill because of unnecessarily rude attitudes. As my avatar Bob used to say "One Love" people, "One Love".

    The Techno is one I let go of to fund another purchase. I quickly realized the error of my ways and sold that knife and bought another Techno.

    It's all good. This forum is pretty resilient against complete @$$holery and Taz is not afraid to put the boot down when things get out of hand.

    Sarcasm is hard to pull off in text form which is why I only use it in person when dealing with Mrs. Square.

    Why the long face? But seriously just got a tecno for my birthday! Let me tell you it shocks me that its built like that. I'm willing to bet that it could survive a nuclear blast.
