I had the pleasure of visiting Spyderco’s facility located in Golden, Colorado while on a family vacation. I was extremely impressed by the quality of the gear they make and have since purchased several of their products. I’ll be reviewing each of those over on our companion site Gear Trails – Spyderco Tag – About Gear Trails – but this one fits better here on homebrew Finds.
