I started with a Spyderco Persistance and found this forum (spider side) So impressed with my Persistance that I wanted more! Came to understand that I have "value folder" and there are a lot of Spydercos I would love to have but just can't afford to collect and play with those. Someone suggested I try Byrds. Looks like I can afford some different blades, length, and styles to try to see what really suits me. They look great, think I'm going to order a couple today to try.
