Hello from Michigan. I just ordered my first Spyderco (Lil Native Compression Lock).
Not a collector, (yet ?) just a user. Not sure I can add a lot to the forum, but if something comes up where I can add to the conversation, I’ll try.
I have been reading a lot here lately and couldn’t help myself but order a knife finally.

Welcome to the forum!

The Lil Native is a popular knife amongst knuts here and I’m sure you’ll be very happy with it so let us know what you think when you have it in hand. :)

Welcome to the city limits of Spyderville :D And welcome to the best knife forum out there. Just wait till you get hooked on Spyderco's Hawkbills and sharpening tools. It only gets worse from there on :D You better get an extra part time job because you will be spending some money for sure ;)

I hate to tell you this, but Spydercos are the most addictive substance known to man. They are worse than Lays potato chips. You can't have just one.

I fear you are accurate in this statement. I haven’t even received my first one and already looking at others to acquire. Hopefully common sense kicks in....but that’s not likely...

Just think of it as a "new" common sense. :)

Welcome to Spyderco and the forum!

Welcome :D

I would suggest other hobbies such as smoking crack/meth or gambling or prostitution, they're all far cheaper and less addictive than knife collecting.

Well the Lil Native arrived today (early). Perfect centering and very smooth to open and close I am doomed....

Sad but true.... think it was a matter of weeks before I was up to 5.
