A fine gift and a rare blade, indeed.

Those of us dextra-privileged often lack awareness of the daily tribulations faced by the sinistra born among us.

The need for golf clubs, rifles and even scissors for lefties is easily understood. Knives, not so much. The typical plain edge fixed blade is inherently ambidextrous. Spyderco folders with ambidextrous pocket clips can be positioned left, right, tip up or tip down. The center release lock back works well in either hand.

It's only the liner locks that are not ambi and I never considered that the Spyderedge is on one side and not the other and would not be visible when being used by a lefty.

It's been a slow day at the office.

Thanks for the post. I write lefty, cut lefty, shoot righty/lefty, bat righty. It is a bit of a challenge sometimes, like when I need a left handed screw driver.

You are on a roll!!

I'd pretty much given up buying knives, especially customs. Every once in a while something comes along that intrigues me, this knife was one of them. Here's the video of Nathan Carothers testing his Field Knife:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1w1_WX_fNN8

This is the one I picked up, I have always considered Jimmy Fikes the king of sharp, Nathan is the new winner!

I am a Benchmade guy. Had a Red box (import) one for years, a local Tac Shop was going out of business and sold off their knives at a good discount, so I picked a couple up, then went back and got a couple more.

The one I had been looking for was the Osborne 940-1 (CPM-S90V Blade/ Carbon Fiber Handle Scales) (middle knife in photo)

My other favorite is the top one in the photo, at 757 Vikar beefy, good feel in hand, and easier to use with gloves on, my outdoor carry knife.

The Osborne is now my EDC, wicked sharp and incredibly light.

All the medium and large Spyderco knives for the American market can be opened with one hand by starting the blade with the trademark opening hole using the thumb and a flick of the wrist. When they lock, they click. Even opened slowly, when they lock they will click, just not as loudly.

The very small Spyderco lock back knives do not lend themselves to one handed opening unless a lanyard is added but even those click when locking.

European Spyderco knives, slip knives, that do not lock probably do not click much.

It can be quite startling to bystanders to whip out and click a Spyderco. In public, generally I open mine very slowly and quietly.

Spyderco makes a knife I believe that as its being opened, makes a ratcheting sound, thats what I meant when I said click haha. Should've been more specific about what type of "click" I meant. But yes I know the click you are talking about, and I quite enjoy that click from certain knives. The best opening "click" I think is from both of my CRK Sebenzas, and it does indeed bring some looks from people around me. Its actually pretty hard to get a Sebenza to open quietly one handed lol.

In the immortal words of Emily Litella (Gilda Radner) on Saturday Night Live, "Oh, well, that's very different. Never mind."

And no, the Schempp Bowie does not ratchet. I do not own one, but I believe that it is the Navaja that ratchets, also by Ed Schempp.

Sold a couple knives I never use anymore, Spyderco Delica 4 and Military, so went and added another one to the stable.

Spyderco Slysz Bowie


This thing is phenomenal! Carry's very well, super easy to open like all Spyderco's, just this one takes a little practice to confidently open one hand with it's smaller hole that is close to the body. It's also my first titanium handle and also first frame lock. I've had liner locks in the past and never liked them but this is much better and I have zero complaints. Been carrying and using it every day now for just about 3 weeks and I don't see this one ever leaving the collection. Might be safe to say it's my new favorite.

Jeeps and knives on the same forum? I knew I liked this place for some reason!

I had to stop my EDC tools / knives spending so I would have enough money for the Jeep's monthly payment but I think it will be worth it.

I just sold my Emerson CQC-7A to buy a 7BW as I wasn't a fan of the tan scales. Here's a shot I took the other night and I tried to brighten it up as much as possible but of course that really takes away from the quality of it. It looks much better on the small Instagram app than it does on a big computer monitor.



Here's another one with my DPx Gear H.E.S.T. Since I never used the RotoBlock I swapped it out with something more my style.

Newest addition, the all black Spyderco Southard flipper. I can see this one becoming a favorite.

I was cleaning my knives this morning and realized something kind of interesting. The tops of the blades on my Umnumzaan and Southard are really similar. The two "humps" on the top, close to the back of the blade close to the pivot, line up almost perfectly when placed on top of each other.

Spyderco often collaborates with outside knife designers. Brad Southard designed the Umnumzaan and the Spyderco Southard.

Old school guy...I work in a "factory" in a Shipping department. I need a EDC that holds an edge. I used Buck knives for years....got old and don't hunt as much, no reason to always have a cleaning/ sheath Knife on my belt.....tried Gerbers...and even the "good" Gerbers couldn't hold an edge more than 3 or 4 days at work. Stumbled across A Spiderco. Light weight easy open, and holds an edge like you wouldn't believe...yeah that "click" always gets the other peoples attention. Best knife I have ever owned...I have two just in case I "loose" one...don't want to have to hunt for a replacement I like as well in a hurry.

Same! There's always one in my pocket regardless but in the Jeep is a Leatherman Multitool waiting on deck. Those pliers have come in handy too many times to count.

There's a small subset of people in the knife community that have decided on Thursday as the day to show off some of your knife collection. One guy even created a website for it .. knifethursday.com.

Here's my contribution to last week's Knife Thursday:

I have two of these from Joey. They are custom and not available from his website. Shoot him an email and ask.

Well I stumbled on this thread a little bit ago and I just thought I would say I like this tread. But on to the real reason I came here, did you guys know that Morakniv or Mora is releasing a full tang knife?
