Spyderco 2015 Prototype Video – Brian Tighe Stick

Last but not least is this short video I took of the upcoming Spyderco Tighe Stick, designed by Brian Tighe. Eric Glesser gives a quick table top preview of this stunning knife. Again, sorry for the poor video quality. Proper pictures of the Tighe Stick prototype can be found in this post.

Spyderco 2015 Production Prototype – Laci Szabo SzaboHawk

March 18, 2015

The Szabohawk felt like it belonged more in a toolbox than a display cabinet for fine knives. And I mean that in a good way, the Szabohawk is definitely all business. The hawk seemed very agile in the hand and ergonomic for a variety of grips. Apparently, it’s suitable for use as both an entry tool and a fighting tool if needed. The SzaboHawk’s sheath from this prototype seemed just right, solid retention but the hawk could be drawn smoothly from the sheath.
