    Dr. Chim's Ever-Growing Collection (Picture Heavy)

    Hello all, figured I'd make a thread where I can share some pictures of my collection-in-the-works. So far it's been a revolving door since being Spyder-bitten early last year. Damn, has Spyderco got it right.

    Thanks for looking!

    Pete

    Excellent snaps sir, I particularly like the shots of the Pacific Salt.

    It's nice to see a varied collection as well.

    Nice pics. Thanks for the eye candy. Salt 1 is in my top favorite knives, so I really like those.

    - best wishes, Jazz.

    Thanks for the compliments, guys. I really appreciate it.

    Here's the most recent addition to my modest collection, a ParaMilitary 2. I should have picked one of these beauties up a long, long time ago. Better late than never, right?

    I love the Bug. It's a great conversation piece. the minuscule size never fails to impress someone...and it's a very sharp, very functional slipjoint too. I enjoy using it to open my mail




    Endura 4 FFG that I recently acquired. Great knife. Might have to make this one of my users.




    Here's my user Delica 4. I love this knife to death and it's probably one of the sharpest I own. Perfect for EDC.

    Yet, I didn't make it into the 2012 Spyderco Calender. Thanks for the compliment, though! Maybe they'll consider me for 2013, haha.

    Sir... your sickness, it's at a critical level! Please let me treat it, or else your wallet may be permanently damaged!!

    Haha, just kidding. Great collection. For some reason, all the knives in your collection are on my "want to get but we'll have to see" list.

    Thanks, Donut! Nah, those aren't Christmas lights....they're Halloween lights! I have a bunch of orange mini lights adorning my garage and around a fence in my back yard.

    Hey, thanks a lot! My current camera is a not-that-fancy Canon Powershot SD880 IS that is 10mp. Like any Canon, it has outstanding macro capability.
    Sooner or later I'd love to get my mitts on a DSLR, but that's money I will probably never have.

    Haven't you heard? There is no antivenin for a Spyder bite
    Oh, and good luck crossing some items off that list! My own list is is a bit sickening!

    Thank you all once again for all the compliments. I'm having a blast being able to share all these pictures with you.

    I noticed I completely forgot about my pair of trusty value folders, the Tenacious and the Resilience. Usually I am against Chinese-made knives but these two are great workhorses. I did own an Ambitious for a short period of time but I wasn't a fan.







    Here's another one of my user knives, the Caly 3. Blade is all scratched up, G-10 is worn...boy do I love it!
