When you hold a Spyderco knife in your hand you know you are holding quality. Each Spyderco knife is backed by more than 30 years of research and development to find the right steels and handle materials. All Spyderco knives have been ergonomically designed to open easily and fit comfortably in the hand while cutting. And each pocketknife will hang out in your pocket until you need it. Almost all Spyderco folding knife models feature the thumb hole pull for easy, one handed opening. Most have a pocket/belt clip for convenient carrying.

Now I know why this knife gets so much praise. My other blades are not getting any pocket time. Believe the hype - This is an EDC icon.
I didn't want to like it, but it is the benchmark so picked one up. Instant convert. And a second as I will customise one with flytanium scales, do electric etchings and commit other heresies so it is less intimidating when people borrow it in the office. Fantastic, very solid, very smooth and very strong workhorse, provided one does not do something stupid and use the tip to open paint tins etc. Extremely comfortable. It often replaces my Native 5s as an everyday carry. It is not beautiful, but like the Native 5 (which is a nice looking nice) it is a master study in good functional design, and it was designed as a workhouse, and not a 'drawer queen'. My hobbies end up with using cheap nylon rope and some woodwork - its a great blade size and geometry for that. Great geometry for food prep in a pinch - often end up at B&Bs with just one usable kitchen knife. Can't comment on blade retention yet.
Spyderco U.S.A. build Quality, fit and finish is perfect. Blade is centered and drops shut. The CPM-S45VN is a New Generation Steel and Spyderco's Heat Treatment is well-done, edge retention is on the upper range for this type of Steel.
Knifeguy's service can't be faulted, you're not likely to find better. Thank you for making a difference Martin!
Knife does not keep an edge.
Service from knife guy was top though.
