Well, considering what I had to do to get it, and how many crazed Spyderco fans have been making offers on it, I think I'd like it even if I didnt like it, so to speak.
It's going in the knife vault/sock drawer for six months...well, maybe three months, to begin with. That would bring us to Decemeber, which is not only gift-giving season, but is also kind of a desert for knives: the sales are over, the stock is low, the new models haven't come out, and there's probably nothing exciting out there worth buying. Early December I'll post a local add in the online classifieds to see if I can get any action at $300. If not, I'll give it another three months, and if the desperate collectors still wont bite, into long-term storage it will go. The owner of my local knife shop just bought a beat-to-hell Spyderco super blue from 2006, or maybe '07...around then. I think it was a full sized Calypso, but even that I'm not entirely sure of. What I remember was the price: he paid $475 for a beat up knife with plastic handles (but no rust nor serious blade chips). I dont want to wait a decade+ to make a profit from this one, but that's why it the only time it's ever been out of the box was for the photo shoot.
That said, if I can find a little non-locking higonokami that actually looks like it had a legitimately aogami blade, I'll scoop that up in a second, and will never come near the sock drawer. I'll use that thing daily.
