I hadn't heard of that one Ben.  It does look good.  £80 is a bit out of my price range ATM. :-\
Be excellent to each other and always know where your towel is.

Same here.  :-\

Still, it's good to see something other than the UKPK.  :)

It's very nice, and i can see myself buying one at some stage, like the UKPK (in black at least) its not a very "friendly" looking knife is it? Still very nice though!!

Yeah I clocked it :)

Bit steep for 440c though, but at least it's another manufacturer addressing our little island for once :)
Give in, buy several Farmer's!!!!!!

OK, my opinion of this knife has gone down a tad.  :-\  According to Boker, they used the Spyderhole with permission from Spyderco themselves.  This is in fact not the case at all.  Sal himself was surprised to see this knife and the comments Boker had made.

I really hate manufacturers who stamp their name on the clip, kinda defeat the point of a low riding clip doesn't it. SOG is the worst, stamping their name everywhere on their product.

I never thought of that, but yes it does seem a bit daft doesn't it?

I used to come here a lot.

Yeah that bugs me too.

SOG are by far the worst for that.  :D

Normally when company wants to blatantly advertise of your property, they pay you....

That is quite... horrible. Tacky even. I didn't even look at the knife specs.

The worst part is it's actually over $30 more expensive than uncoated version.

I quite like the idea actually :D A knife like my Becker Necker would (IMO) look quite cool with a design like that on it, then again i'm slightly odd!! :D

OK i gotta side with Ryan. I actually think it is kinda cool, and different. I mean it aint everyones bag, but really look at it as a marketing thing. People buy SAK knives with all kind of advertising on them. At least this one is the real company and not Marlboro cigs.


MMMMMM Cigaretts!

Yeah I had read that elsewhere.

It does seem odd that Sal would claim he knew nothing about it though.
