    Hello, where can i buy Spyderco spot knife?

  2. spyderco source Says:

    Since its discontinued, you will have to try eBay or For Sale listings on forums like Bladeforums or Jerzeedevil.

    I have a VG10 version with the micarta handle but without the nib. Instead of the nib it has a hole (closest to the handle) and a different Kydex sheath with only 4 eyelets. No coating on the blade. Do you have any information on this knife? There is no problem keeping the knife in the sheath so Im not sure why they had the nib version made.

    I’ve never see the nib-less one, though I remember seeing pictures with no nib. Possible its a different release or a prototype though it would be marked as such.
