    New member from Spain

    Hello everyone.

    I am a new member and want to introduce myself. I am from Spain and have been visiting this forum as a guest.

    Now I think is the time to become a member and participate a little more in it. My bad English could be a shortcoming but I'll try to improve it.

    My present Spydercos are Persistence, Ambitious, Tenacious, DF2 ZDP, Caly 3.5, Manix2 LW and Manix2 XL.

    My next purchases can be Sage 1 and 3.

    I hope to learn and share knowlegde too.

    Best regards

    Bienvenidos! Vivo en Costa Rica, pero mi novia se de pais vasco, so we usually pass through Madrid every year to visit her family. Maybe next year I'll smuggle you some spydies in when I visit. Hehehe. Welcome to the forums!

    Y no se preocupe. Your English is very good. Don't be afraid to jump into the discussions around here. There are folks from all over the world on this forum and everyone is very polite.

    Welcome to the forum, you are certainly among friends! As the others have said, your command of English seems quite good. We do enjoy good pictures as well, so get your camera out!

    Welcome to the forum Titomake.
    Are you familiar with Navaja knives? Spyderco makes an excellent Navaja:

    http://www.spyderco.com/catalog/details.php?product=632


    From the Spyderco main website:

    " Unique to the Navaja is the Carraca or ratcheting sound it produces when the blade opens and closes. Carraca ratcheting generates a reaction similar to the sound of chambering a round in a firearm, distinctively announcing the knife's presence and has been attributed to deterring a criminal or criminal behavior."

    ¡Bienvenidos!

    Su inglés me parece muy bien. Hay pocos errores. ¿Estudió usted solamente en España o también en un país anglohablante? De todos modos, este foro es un fuente excelente de información. I don't post here often but I browse it about every day. If you have the money, I would recommend purchasing the Knifeworks CF S90V Manix 2 sprint run while it's still available! I think they ship overseas . . .

    All spyderco folders are navajas actually. That's just what they call folding knives in Spain. Actually the folding knife was born in Spain after one of the leaders passed a carry law against longer blades some 500 years ago. True story...government imposed knife restrictions are nothing new apparently. Now, there is a classic spanish (gypsy?) knife that is known for its distinctive ratcheting sound, but I don't know what it is called specifically.

    Ok, most of this info I pick up from my spanish girlfriend and more so, from some of her friends who are into knives, so I'm just repeating what I've been told. Please step in and correct me if I've got any of this wrong Titomake.

    Cool story Lance. Seems like contraband is the source of all things good sometimes, no?

    Folding knives go back at least to ancient Roman times.

    Welcome to the forums, Titomake. You've got a great start on your collection and the Sage 1 and 3 are especially good choices. Hope to see you around!

    Hah, yeah, I have to be careful about repeating what I hear without googling it. . I just looked it up and there's a pretty interesting read on the origins of the Navaja on Wikipedia. They allude to the governmental restriction, but don't say much about it. I have heard the story in more detail...most of which I can't recall, but I remember it being kind of interesting. I'm sure I could find that info too if I wasn't too lazy to practice my google-fu.

    Welcome!!! Great collection so far!!

    Get the sage 1 now And wait for the new sage 3's unless you like the blue g10. But the carbon fiber pattern on the new sage 3 looks really great!
