    That letter from M Glesser himself is a classy touch ...... :thumbup:

    It adds to my pride of ownership.

    Wow very disappointing to see this, the Southard is one of my favorite go to knives. However glad to see Spyderco took care of you.

    What was the outcome of the failure? Just curious......

    I would also be interested to hear what the probable cause of failure was. I own a Southard and still have every confidence in it, but I too am curious.

    Any update on this. I WANT to pull the trigger on a Southard bad but honestly sort of hesitant..

    don't be shy. I have carried a Southard ever since they first came out. Flawless. Heck, it's in my pocket as we speak. :D

    Why would you hesitate? Spyderco stands behind their product and took care of the single issue thus far. I would have no reservations in getting one knowing that they will make it right in the slight event that it isn't.

    Exactly. Atakdog's post says it all:

    ANY KNIFE CAN FAIL. And by the laws of probability, if you make enough knives, some of them WILL fail. If you want to purchase a knife that is guaranteed never to fail, you're going to have to find one made out of a material that currently does not exist.

    The reason I am hesitant is because I plan on rit dying the brown G10 black. This would void the warranty bc I "took it apart".

    There is a black model.

    I wish people would stop perpetuating that rumor.

    I wouldn't worry about it, personally. Any knife can break, if you name a (production) model, I'm sure there's a picture of it broken somewhere.

    I wouldn't speak for Spyderco...

    If you can figure out how to take the stock scales off to put the aftermarket scales on, you should be able to do that in reverse. ;)

    The key word is "technically". Spyderco will take care of manufacturing defects regardless of being taken apart.

    No kidding. The warranty is still void then. Or are you suggesting putting the old scales back on in the case of needing a warranty?
