My first Spydie was a leafstorm. I had my eye on a Benchmade 755 but the leafstorm had better reviews. I love the leafstorm and sometimes edc it but I have to be careful where it goes as technically, it is illegal to carry.

My first was the Ambitious. Quite a big bite packed into such a small package.

An Endura 3 CE with black coated blade. Still have it and carry it on occasion. My second was a Delica 3 CE olive drab with black blade, I paid $35.00 for it and only in the past few years did I realize that it was a sprint run. After I lost it. I bought both of those new in 2004 or 05, not sure which now.

My first was an SE Snap It in red with kraton inserts. I still have the knife over fifteen years later.

Bought a new Endura Stainless SE back in June 2007. Been hooked ever since
The important thing was that I had an onion tied to my belt, which was the style at the time. You couldn't get white onions, because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones...

Foliage Green Ladybug 3. However, it was the next one, the FRN Dragonfly 2 that really changed my life.

My friend was telling me about his knife with a hole in the blade (early 90s). I said there was no way I was going to get one. At the time I was into Benchmades. After a couple of months, I decided to try a Spyderco. I decided to get a black Delica plain edge with the molded clip. When I got the Delica, I found out why my friend liked them. They were so easy to open with the hole in the blade. I've bought tons of Spyderco over the years and guess what, that first Delica is still in my pocket.

FRN pro-grip CE with integral clip. Carried it and abused it for about seven years or so. Never knew much about spydies until I lost it and started looking to find another. Picked up a PE Delica 1 and an Endura 4 CE for a steal. Love them both. Best part is I found the Pro-grip later. Worst part is I lost the Endura. Now I need another.

Black blade tenacious. Got me hooked and I haven't bought a different brand since. I gave it to my brother for his birthday to show him the value of carrying a knife. It helped that I had some nicer spydies by then.

Resilience was my first, but the one that really caught me in the Spyder's web was the Para2.
