This does not mean that it may be right for you or for your purpose I mean it is right for mine. As a Law Enforcement Officer I find the Tanto style blade to be a better design for our uses than a drop point, clip point or straight blade. Here is my duty Spyderco and as you can see it is well used.
It won't break my heart if you insist on sending that knife to me...


WHAT A BEAUTY!

I have 7" tanto. It's like having a much longer knife with the tip broken off. It has a tacticool sheath, a really sticky grip, and a heavy, stainless blade/shank.
I got it because I found it, and I got my money's worth.

Francisco, what he forgot to mention is that it is the titanuim version.

I'm going to put you both on my "ignore" list!

I do love seeing a Spydie put to good use by somebody who appreciates it, though. To me, that Lum Tanto looks much better after 10 years of faithful service than any safe queen kept mint. I just like the way knives age and gain character.
