Hi Tom,

Thanx much for the kind words and for posting. And thanx for your service.

Spyderco has shipped Natives to the Middle East every month since 2003, and we are still doing so. They are still engraved, though the mission name has changed. The color of the knife is dedicated to troops in the Middle East. They are not for sale to the general public.

Hello Sal,
I am new to the forum, but not Spyderco. My collection was stolen in 1999 and it hurt.

I came across this post while setting up a request for help from Forum members on building my new Spyderco Collection.

I cannot say how much I agree with what you posted about this topic. We are all in this together as business owners no matter what our business is. Ethics, Morals, Honesty and a great product are many times hard to find. Spyderco has always been a shining beacon of all of these.

I am happy that I can now start my Spyderco Collection again but I wish I still had my early knives from you guys.

I am so happy to be back - I will definitely visit you guys at SHOT 2018.

If you would not mind - take a look at my post on beginning my collection.

Again many thanks for years of great products and services you provide to all of us.
Marc

Intelligent, civil communication is more valuable in our everyday lives, too. Thanks, Sal, for the fine words.

The hostility that seems to appear on the forum makes it an uncomfortable place to be. This is opposite the intention.

Much of the hostility seems to be centered around the "round hole issue".

After listening to comments, discussion and much thought (which requires time becausae I'm sometimes slow), I have a request.

I am asking you to pull any tag lines or comments that could be percerived as hostile or antagonistic to other companies in the knife industry, while on our forums.

I realize that to many, it is an important issue, and I will admit to being sensitive myself, but a negative approach is not good for the industry or Spyderco in the industry.

Intelligent, civil communication is more valuable.

We have always tried to "leave shiny footprints" where ever we go. I personally have tried to avoid negative comments towards other companies. (No, I'm not perfect either :o ) I think it serves to keep thoughts about Spyderco and other companies more positive than negative.

If you would like to be closely associated with Spyderco, which we greatly appreciate, it would be our wish that you consider leaving shiny footprints rather than hostile feelings, where Spyderco is concerened.

thanx much for your cooperation and kind understanding.
