My submission for the 2014 Spyderco Calendar Contest

July 29, 2013

Spyderco decided to run another calendar contest this year. Despite my horrible track record, I decided to try an idea I had last time.

I think every calendar needs a photo that is made specifically for a particular season. That is why I pictured a Spyderco-themed Christmas dinner table setting, with a different spydie to be used for each course. The bowl featuring the entrée is filled with iron and a 😉 . Christmas often brings a sense of nostalgia, so I chose three all-time classic Spyderco designs for this photo.

My submission for the 2013 Spyderco Calendar Contest

July 16, 2012

For a few years now, Spyderco has organized a calendar contest on its own factory forum. I though about my submission for a while and I decided to post a Spyderco that technically doesn’t exist yet. Read my motivation below.

Forum Name: Mr Blonde
Model: Spyderco C156GPBN Brad Southard Flipper

A large part of our collective enthusiasm for Spyderco knives, on this forum, is the anticipation for the next new design. Spyderco has always shared new design prototypes with us knifeknuts for feedback before they are finally produced. This knife doesn’t really exist yet, it’s the Brad Southard Flipper prototype that was shown at the 2012 Amsterdam Meet. I was more than happy to take the pictures and share them with my fellow knifeknuts online. Judging from my web statistics, it is the single most anticipated new Spyderco knife for 2013.
