Dontknow, if its the same with some of you guys, but my grandfather was a knifecollector,and had quite a selection of small knives,mostly non locking folders but real nice pieces.
Now, mostly all of his knives were given to his sons and grandsons,including myself.
The one, i have, is A very swissarmy style pocketknife,with a large blade and small blade and brass scales.This small pocketknife is called a Krugerknife,like the gold Krugerrands in S-Africa,which is a collectors item, amongst coincollectors.
I remeber when i was about 5years old and my mom, showed me this small pocketknife and i asked her when i'll be old enough to receive it.
6years later i was given the knife on my 11th b/day along with some other gifts.
I was using my first pocketknife, passed on from my grandfather,proudly, opening my gifts and slicing b/day cake into small pieces.
And this is how my love for knives started...
Today im 29years of age and im a proud Spydie collector.I just wish Spydies were also around,when my grandfather was a young knifecollector.
Maybe then, he also would have had a couple of Spydie bites,im sure.
