Effective January 1, 2018 per Facebook post by National Knives, LLC an hour ago: "Stock up on your favorite Spyderco knives. Come January 1, 2018 there will not only be the yearly price increases, but also a new Minimum Advertised Price policy (MAP) that will go into effect. Currently MAP pricing is 40% below MSRP. Jan.1, that will be 35%. That's a 5% increase on top of the yearly prices increases!" I've been buying fewer Spyderco knives since MAP enforcement of I think two years ago and now it'll be fewer still.
