EDIT: @Micky D - Sad git that I am, I was actually thinking yesterday how to get a decent pic of them all together. I remembered Bob (J-Sews)'s pic on the stairs, but our staircase is curved :D

Maybe you could find a really big fence post..... :D

Telegraph pole might do it :D

ROFL! I reckon it might look a bit like a hedgehog.  

I'll think of something. I'll probably then forget it but hey.

I think I'm up to about 60ish different variations now - it's getting a bit daft.....

I used to come here a lot.

Just to bring things slightly OT (as I've been commanded to be good  >:( )...

That's a really tasty looking knife Ben.  Though its not healthy for me to spend too long looking at Spydies  :drool:

I'm glad I got the yellow in the end.  I expect it's not a very popular colour though.

I saw following your thread benner on knife choice and waiting for you choice, I'm also contemplating on buying me a pure folder myself. I think you made a good choice, could you make another review after using it until lets say January next year? thanks.

Excellent choice Ben! :cheers:

I've heard great things of that blade and H1.  May it serve you well and do the job.
how are you liking the "hole?" I like the thumb stud better but the hole works fine.
and how are you carrying? (if you were too)

Having a slightly larger hole than most, it is real easy to open and so far I am liking the hole.

As for carry, I am using the pocket clip.  It's pretty easy to clip on and off, so so far I am pleased.

I like spyderco knives.  However, I never really liked serrated blades even though I have a lot of them.  For a knife that use everyday, I like plain edge better.  I really like those bright scales as well.  It is great ifyou use it in the woods or around water if you drop it, it would be easier to find.

I find that I almost never use straight edged knives.. I usually only carry a MT that had both straight and serrated and I always use the serrated!

Good choice Ben, i have the SE version of this model myself, also in yellow.
I have it for about 3 years now and it has been a part of my EDC ever since, and it has been to various corners of the world with me.

They are great EDC knives.  :tu:

The only issue I have is that there is a small (and I mean small) amount of vertical play in the lock.  This is however highly common and just the nature of that kind of locking mech.

I'm not much into knifes but I do own a small spidy and I like it!  If I ever have to buy another knife it will be a H1 spidy as well. Good choice! Congrats  :tu:

Had the salt 1 and I got to say I hated the thing. It had the blade retention of a tuna sandwich. I actually never owned a knife that was so difficult to keep sharp as the salt. So I ditched it and never looked back. Now my wet knife is just my Native with the Ti clip off the salt.
