I have been a big Spyderco fan for years. My first was an Endura back when it first came out with the molded in pocket clip. Over time the Military became my favorite. Here is some of my collection.

Nice collection! Yeah, I like my various Spydercos, but once I got a Military, it instantly became my favorite.

There's a Vallotton for sale locally that I've been incredibly tempted to pick up. If it's still available, I think I'm going to go ahead and pull the trigger on it this weekend.

I found a Spyderco knife in my father's safe. It is an ATS-55 4" serrated folder made in Japan. My mother gave it to my son for helping her around the house with some chores.

Sold all my Benchmades going back to 1999, saved only one, a classic, beautiful knife... 710 M2 HS, straight edge, coated, my favorite knife of all time.

Spyderco, thirteen miles away, has replaced Benchmade. My EDC's...

MANIX 2 CF S90V
PM2 S30V
SAGE 2 Ti S30V

All three Spydercos, phenomenal knives!

I saw this post and decided to go check out the latest offerings on Spyderco's website. I used to carry an early Delica (plastic molded clip) back in the 90's.

I discovered their pretty generous OpFocus program that offers a 50% discount (off MSRP) to military, first responders, medical professionals, and veterans. I picked up a new Delica for $60 (50% off their $120 MSRP) which is still less than what you normally find one for in store.

I snagged this one with the OpFocus discount on Wednesday. I think it will go well with my McBees, which are my main blades at work since they have to be less than 2.5".

So as I continue my “Spyderco journey” I have to say one thing I am impressed with is how involved both Sal and Eric are with the community. They reply to various forum posts, provide insight to design decisions, offer help with issues and just generally come across as real enthusiasts willing to discuss, agree, disagree and just be a part of the community.

That is impressive to me as so many large companies (good and bad) are simply corporate giants nothing more nothing less.

Reminds me of the CEO of Dan Wesson reaching out to somebody with an issue years back over a holiday.

It’s amazing how far being a human can go whether you agree with them or their answer/justification for this or that.

Not sure why I posted this other than to reaffirm I am still very happy with my switch to Spyderco.

That said I still love my Benchmade Northforks. Frown

I may have missed some, but here are the Spydercos I have added since the group pic of 11/5/2010. If you are a Spyderco fan, enjoy.
