This is a sweet little knife. The Taichung Spydercos really are top notch in terms of fit and finish. I am curious to see how the chisel grind works for me. It is ground for a left-hander and I am a rightie. I can see how the grind was necessary for design reasons, and I am sure it won't be a big deal in a small utility blade like this.
All in all I am very pleased with this little knife. It is a cool design with a high quality steel that is executed superbly. Some have complained about the color scheme (wanting an all black knife) but I really like the colors. They are playful ( for want of a better term) and certainly make the knife less intimidating to folks who might otherwise think this was some sort of covert weapon (ie idiots aka most people).

Yes, I noticed the chisel grind is for lefties as well. If you look at Emerson knives they all seem to be that way too. In food prep you will find most Japanese Knives have it the other way around so right-handers can get really close cuts to the material, and the bevel on the other side will push the cut material away. I don't know why Emerson and any others that use Chisel-grind haven't cottoned-on to this, seeing as being right handed is in the majority? In this case, I guess it has to be flat against the Titanium back.
