    Default OLD SPYDERCO KNIFE

    HELLO
    I just found this old knife that I had purchased about 15 years ago in an old storage box. It is a spyderco and it has 2 "M" markings with a line between them on the side that says Spyderco and it says "AUS-6 Japan " on the other side. I have tried to find some info about it on the internet but no luck. Does anybody know anything about this knife ????

    The marking is actually an "E" and "B" instead of two Ms. The designer of that knife was Eduard Bradichansky.

    From what I can see, it looks like the lock is the tab that appears to be a clip. When the knife is open, you can stick your finger in that hole to press the tab outward so it no longer interferes with the blade and the blade can then fold into the handle. If that is so, it looks like a perfect little finger trimmer. It looks to me like a prototype for the Byrd Flatbyrd: http://www.spyderco.com/catalog/details.php?product=256 This thing may have been discontinued for liability reasons. You may have yourself a nice collector's item there. Although the Byrd brand is the low end, China made Spyderco knives.

    Personally I think many Spyderco knives are gimmicky crap. Look at this thing: http://www.spyderco.com/catalog/details.php?product=268 that entire knife is a design flaw.

    Icedog,
    If you push that bar out the knife will certainly become a liability as that is it's locking mechanism and it will probably never be the same. As for it's intended method of carry and for the general info of the original poster or anyone else interestd, here's a link to site that had them.

    As for being gimmicky junk, some Spyderco designs can be pretty radical and appeal to limited tastes but they are always quality steel and well built. American made for the most part to boot.

    Ditto on the quality. I purchased my Spyderco nearly 30 years ago, and it's still my favorite pocket knife. Tough as nails, all stainless. Mine is made by Seki - Japan.
    Really holds an edge.

    Cheers,
    Rick

    Spyderco is extremely reliable. My Delica and Endura are some of my favourites in my collection. The Byrd line is reliable as well and excellently priced. The SpyderCo Tenacious is probably one the best knife you can get for the money, probably beating knives two or three times as pricey.

    They can be gimicky, but the practical ones just won't let you down.
