Video – Various Production Samples from the Spyderco Amsterdam Meet 2018

March 18, 2018
A little dessert from the Spyderco  Amsterdam Meet 2018! Just before the meet started,  I had the opportunity to take a few close-up videos of some of the knives I had photographed for my other posts. I figure these clips will offer a better impression of the knives’ sizes and how they fit the hand. The labels with numbers on the blades help attendees give feedback on these designs, on special cards that were collected at the end of the meet.

Please note, these are all production samples and I have no information on prices or availability.

This video includes, from start to finish:
1) Paysan, Peter Rassenti design
2) Brouwer, Jerry Brouwer design
3) Respect, Spyderco design
4) Nati Amor, Nati Amor design
5) Lil’ Native Backlock, Spyderco design
6) Mantra 3, Spyderco design
7) Amalgam, Brian Lai design
8) Reinhold Rhino, Michael Reinhold design
9) Zoomer, Thomas Zoomer design
10) Parata, Paul Alexander design
11) Hanan,Brad Southard design

Thanks for watching!

Spyderco 2014 Prototype Video – Serge Panchenko Dog Tag Folder

March 18, 2014

One of the prototypes Spyderco showed this year at the IWA show in Germany, was the Dog Tag Folder designed by Serge Panchenko. Eric Glesser gives a quick overview of this new upcoming folder.

There might have been a little mistake in this video, I overheard Eric explaining elsewhere during the show that the blade is stonewashed and not coated. This is still a production prototype, when the knife is ready for shipping, I’m sure the exact specifications will be published on

I have no information on the pricing or (planned) availability of this knife.
