Talked to my Sig rep this morning. I was going to order a Sig Pterodactyl. He told me Sig is out of the knife business.

From what I could research I believe Fox Cutlery USA was the manufacturer.

Sounds like Sig is getting out of the private-label knife business then.

Were you able to order the knife directly from Fox Cutlery?

Fox cutlery

No, they don't have the same exact knife as the Sigs. But they are nice and high end. You may have also seen their t-shirts around town - FKU (Fox Knives USA)

I'll be saving my pennies for a spyderco auto now/next.

Microtech,Spiderco,and Benchmade in my opinion on the Auto's. I own all three and cherish them all. Microtech for precision build, Spyderco for the Blade and alloys used and Benchmade for the variety of styles and keeping prices in a range all can afford.

Too bad - does anyone know if this is really the case? Sometimes there's a production lag if there's a buyout, but the product starts going though the supply line before too long.

Looking at the prices of most knives I have pretty much decided to stay with Condor products I might have to sharpen it when I first get it but none of them have disapointed me and I have never felt I have a inferior product.

I use the CRKT m16 series of knives for daily carry. When I am out in the bush, or have my tactical rig I rely on my Chris Reeve 7" Green Beret. Both are the best in class in my opinion.

This is an interesting move if Sig is also getting into the ammo business. Perhaps they are just orienting their business toward the more profitable venture?

Benchmade sets the knife standard in my opinion if you want something really nice. From the material used to the mechanical features they are superior. I have a barrage 581 spring assist and it's quality.
Agreed. I have an Axis Flip that is by far my favorite knife. CRKT runs a close second, with Spyderco and Kershaw tied for third. I do have an SOG that I really like, high carbon, extremely thin and sharp, but it's far from Benchmade/CRKT quality. But Buck is still my goto "get dirty" knife. I keep the nice ones nice, and use inexpensive but still quality buck's, for fishing and cleaning deer. For fixed blades, I have never owned anything other than Buck or Kabar.
