    My first two Spydies were identical Snap Its bought at REI when I was in college around 1990 or 1991.

    I took a 20 year break after that, and when I lost my cheap CRKT knife I bought a cheap Spyderco Tenacious to replace it. And now a year later I've got waaaay to many Spydies...

    A C36GPE S30V Spyderco Military. This was also my first one-hand opening folder and only my second knife (after a Victorinox Waiter) that I bought as an adult. It started my knife sickness. Unfortunately though no other knife bought after that could ever please me as much as a Millie, nor kick it out of my right back pocket. Sold most of my folders because of that.

    Delica4. When I decided to send it in for sharpening.....well, my entire verbose story is in my "Thanks to YOU:....." post. This thread is fun reading/viewing, especially for someone just really starting out.

    Received my first Spyderco last week. Paramilitary 2, black/black!

    The pivot is starting to break in nicely.
    Spent 4 days sharpening and polishing. I planned to do a 32 degree inclusive edge but accidentally did 38. Glad I made the mistake. It's razor sharp at 38 and likely quite a bit more durable than had I done 30 or 32.

    Liking the para 2 more every time I pick it up.

    My first was the Q. Bought it in 1997. It "disappeared" one day in '99 but I finally reacquired one a few years back.

    Manix 2 XL last December, liked it so much I got the new FFG Manix 2 a few weeks later, then a purple Ladybug for my wife and a G10 Dragonfly for me, then a Centofante 3 and one of the new Spyderedge kitchen knives, then a purple Delica for her and a pm2 for me. Just ordered a super blue Delica.

    My, it's only March! Have I been bitten by the Spyder Bug? (There was a Robin 2 in there somewhere).

    Oh, yeah. Got a sharpmaker pretty quick, too. Also the diamond and uf rods. Got used to it real quick, and now have razor sharp knives everywhere.

    Sure do like that PM2...

    1992 Endura lightweight serrated than PE. Still have the SE one and it's bearing surfaces are broken in like smooth glass.The FRN clip is loose but still there. The knife has many more years of life. Next was a Black bladed Delica about a year later.

    A good 12 years ago my first Spydie was actually 2 Delicas with the steel clip bought from a close-out deal from Sportsman's Gun Centre. They were £15 each, so I bought a part serrated and a PE VG10/FRN, in case the serrations sucked.

    How wrong I was. Still both in the collection, and that part serrated Delica has been to hell and back a pile of times. Still locks up solid too.

    After that, things kind of got away from me....
