I just never liked the design myself, its my opinion, I apologize if it sounded as if i were putting Spyderco down.Euclidean said:Is that an early April fools hk? With the exception of the Yojimbo I can flick every knife in at photograph open, without even using the Spyderhole in many cases. I can open the Yojimbo one handed sans Spyderhole too but I have to manipulate the lock to do so, so that's technically not a flick.
Ugly is subjective so I'll agree with anyone who says anything is ugly, because if you think it is, then it is.
I wouldn't call the Spyderfly badly balanced, but I wouldn't expect it to hold up to a Bechmade model 42 or a Microtech offering at its price point either. It's more of a dangerous toy. I play with it often but I never carry it. A serious balisong enthusiast can do better I am sure, but at a higher cost.
