Dude, where's my Spyderco?

While on vacation last week I lost my trusty Spyderco Delica. Man, I felt naked. Luckily, we were just a couple of days away from returning home, so I didn't have to go Spyderco-less for that long.

Looking online, I see that Delica's have gone up in price. Almost fifty bucks? Sheesh! I should've stocked up when the old Zytel clip models were selling at $20 closeout prices. I like the Zytel clips better anyway, because unknowing folks always think it's a pager--not the telltale steel clip of a "tactical folder".

So I'm now on the lookout for cheap replacements. Something that if lost won't bother me (as much!) but would supply 80% (ok, 50%) of the Spyderco's utility. I'll report back when I get some samples.

In the meantime, I'm now trying different knives to rotate some of the lesser-used ones into circulation. Today it's the Endura. Tomorrow, probably the Ryan Model 7. Kind of weird, though.
