You are going to be disappointed in the Spiderco! What a rip off. They are not Spiderco's they are a copy ! Byrd Knife BY10GS Robin, supposedly designed by Spiderco. The website claimed they were Spiderco's... :evil:
I didn't realize it at the time, either, but Byrd is a division of SpyderCo
, with it's own branding. They're Chinese imports, but they are in fact sold on the SpyderCo website
. If you or I had bothered to check, we could have known ahead of time they weren't the SpyderCo-branded knives we've come to know and love.
Do you think I should remove this thread?
Personally, I don't think so. It's not Ballistic Reload's fault they weren't what we expected. They didn't lie about the product, they sold them as they're marketed elsewhere. There was no dishonesty on their part, just a lack of research on ours.
It's not a fantastic knife, but it's about what I'd expect for $20 - $30. As I said, I needed a new knife, and this one suits me just fine.
