Spyderco Persian, Red G10 Sprint Run Looks Good. (I think I want it.)
The original Spyderco Persian (Ed Schempp design) is one of my favorite Japanese made Spydercos of all time. I got mine years ago at the military surplus store on first Ave. in downtown Seattle, Federal Army & Navy Surplus/ Gr8gear.com this place should be a destination for all Seattle visitors, they have a ton of great clothing & knives & lights and good prices, with nice people who know their shit. I'm living further South now, so I don't get up there as often as I'd like, but if you visit Seattle you should make the trek to First Avenue to check out the store.
ANYWAY, I just had to say, the Spyderco Persian in red is hot, hot hot.
you can see it now on better knife sites. Roger Claunch's Knifeworks.com has 'em for a fair price. I've gotta decide if i can afford this or not...oh well, I'm content to know it's out there for now, and I can always look @ my original black micarta Perisan and pretend it's red...but the red Persian is a Sprint Run, and limited to 700 pieces, they'll go fast...I guess I'd better get some cash & get one while I can...too bad I don't have any contacts @ Spyderco, LoL.
Big NEW reviews coming SOON. Keep your eyes peeled!
