Hello ... which Spydie is that? OEM or modded?

Damn good looking.

Thanks Guy! :thumbsup:

That pic is pretty much a Bill Siegle “mini showcase”. He modded both knives—added the HOGB8 swedge as described above and the other is a CPM10V Farid K2 which started life with an upswept point good for skinning but not much else. I asked him to re-grind the spine at an angle that made the clip dead straight while preserving as much blade length as possible. Started out with a 4 1/2” blade and is now 4 1/4”—just outstanding.

In my mind this is the knife the Millie should have been.:thumbsup::cool:

Very nice. I especially like how you have the vision to improve the lines/look of a blade and the wherewithal to follow through and make it your own.

A high compliment coming from a man of your style and taste! Thanks, brother—very generous of you. Have to give Bill the credit on these, though. He does make my daydreams and doodles look good.
