If the demand isn't there, and they can be gotten for cheap, I would recommend getting one as a user. Save the ones in more demand for the collection. The design is sound, and makes for a great general purpose folder.
What Happened to the Spyderco Chinese?
Received a few emails asking what my thoughts were on why the last run of Foliage Green Chinese Folders from Spyderco is not selling well. I honestly don't know. It could be that the collectors were more interested in the previous Black handled run because the blade was made with ZDP-189 steel, and this one wasn't. Or that it followed the previously run too closely to the market. Or possibly Foliage Green isn't a popular choice.
