Tend to agree,i have a couple of Spydie folders that i wouldn't part with,great build quality,ergos and fit and finish and USA made.i would not like to pay 200sheets for a Taiwanese Scandi.
The knife has a factory version of the rhombic section that many finnish handforged blades have.Yeah I'd noticed that from a post on british blades. Forgot to edit my post. that's a bit thick for my tastes though, though they have reduced the weight by bevelling upper part of the blade. It's a nice knife still
