Hello everyone. After about a year of lurking and being a registered member since January, I thought it was time to introduce myself and share my story. I've collected knives for about as long as I can remember - mostly traditional slippies. I've accumulated about 60 or so Case knives, another dozen SAKs, various and sorted others and a hand full of Kershaws. Last year, we relocated for employment and in the process of packing up my knife chest, I found a 1st generation Spyderco Delica in it's original box. I don't remember buying it or trading for it but there it was. I took it out and thought, "Man, that is the ugliest knife I've ever seen." So I stuck it in my pocket and used it for the next couple of days for packing duties since I didn't care if I destroyed. Well, you guys know the rest of the story. To use a Spyderco is to fall in love with a Spyderco. That knife handled everything I threw at and molded itself to my hand. Well next thing I knew, I was cruising this forum and beginning to lust for more. I have learned so much from all of you but shame on all of you... you are enablers! To date, I've acquired a Delica 4 FFG, Caly 3 CFP, Caly 3.5 CFP, DF2 Salt and I just ordered a DF2 ZDP-189. Next on the list, Chaparral CFP. Ahhh....such a magnificent obsession!
