Spyderco Schempp Bowie ~ C190CF

The first Spyderco knife was made in 1976 under the direction of Sal Glesser. The company started out as a traveling entity as Sal & his wife, Gail, traveled from show to show. The first permanent establishment was in Golden, Colorado where the company made its first folding knife in 1978. The company proudly touts their knives as being different, peculiar, even out there. "We may look curious, homely, whatever, but we'll never be called unusable or undependable."

I fully realize MSRP is no indication of street price but come on, $300 for this?? Are they out of their ever-lovin' minds? :shock:

I hear ya Mike but at those prices, who could afford to? Three of them at those prices would be a heck of a comedy team.

It seems the norm for their pricing is slowly creeping past the $225.00 mark.. And that knife is butt ugly to me.. ::td:: Too much going on!! ::facepalm:: John :D

I've never understood those prices. That kind of money (and less) for a chunk of steel (I don't care if it is premium steel), two slabs of FRN, some spacers and a few screws. Buck makes several models of high quality modern knives here in the USA and they sell for $25 - $60. So does Kershaw. A traditional knife has a lot more parts and hand manufacturing steps and there are a Billy blue bunch that sell for less than $100. Am I living in my own little world here? I ain't payin' for a damn hole.

I agree. I just don't see that kind of money for that knife.

That's what I'm sayin' Phil. Even though our dear friend Josh might be offended to his socks, I'll have to say it again. I ain't paying extra for a hole. ::huff::
