I think half of it is as simple as most people tend to morph words to be more personal, easier to say/type, or simply enjoy making new words that add a bit exclusivity to themselves and their group of, let's say, "sebbie" owners. Don't get triggered CRK people, I'm a two time seb owner myself I like Spydies too. The other half is, I think, businesses realize people like new words with special meaning coupled with those little tick words like super, limited, ultra, tactical, military grade, practical, economical, exclusive, hand made, custom, alloy, titanium, carbon etc. etc. these words sell more than just knives With all that said, why would you hang out, so to speak , on basically the biggest wad of knife nerds in the world and get mad when they treat the whole thing like comic book or trading card collecting and have all these weird and annoying words and catchphrases like any other group of nerds majorly into something no one else really cares about? Excuse me while I tactically deploy my convex Sebbies and spydies for bushcraft food prep to include the precision disection of cucumbers and the batoning of carrots. The slicyness of my drop shutty spydie should slice meat well too.
