I bought a calypso jr. which developed blade play after about a week (got me through the packages of christmas well) and returned it <img src="sad.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>

But I'm gonna get a new start with my wegner jr on the way!

My first was a Terzoula Jr. plain edge from the old SFO (called Ironstone) in Golden. Then I took a big jump--Carbon fiber/titanium Michael Walker 50-50 from the same store. Still have 'em both.

My first <img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> was a Police SS, SE which I inhereted from a friend and had never used. I carried it to one of my daughter's lacrosse games and we took bottled water in plastic shrinkwrap for the team. With one surprising swipe I opened up the shrinkwrap on two sixpacs and cut open 5 plastic bottles of water which leaked all over the place. So I learned what sharp means.

Spyderco Standard, old style with the stamped clip.

I bought it at a Hoffritz Cutlery Store on closeout. I thought it looked "cool". I didn't get another Spydie after that for 10 years (the next one was a Jot Singh Khalsa).

Dude ~

My first <img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> folder was a C-17 Catcherman! I saw this in the <img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> '98 PDR. It caught my attention almost immediately. I was on the lookout for a good folding fillet knife and I found just what I was looking for at a toolshop. The price was right and the knife feels great on my hands, so I purchased it wihthout any hesitation.. The <img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> C-17 served well in many of my outings especially when it comes to cleaning, gutting and dressing fish.. Though the AUS-6 was a bit stiff, it held pretty well.. I'm actually looking forward to the MBS-26 version to see how flexible and strong it can be... <img src="wink.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>

Mine was my Native Lightweight CE. It felt good in my hands, was easy to open and close (instantly fell in love with the round hole), and was good-looking yet useful for utility work. It's now my concealed carry, with the Calypso Jr. as my EDC at work.

My first Spydercos were two Natives.
Bladeforums PE.
Stainless PE.
I had been looking at Spyderco knives for some time, never being able to decide where to start. I saw these in a package deal and it was like, "Hello".

Ryan,
G10 PE Police. Biggest and best. <img src="tongue.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> Also, I have a question. Is the SFO going to offer the FRN colored Jesters? I need a green one.

My first was a <img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> Endura, actually wanted a Police model first but the store didn't have one. So the Endura was a hold over until I could get a Police model. Ended up with both a Police and Ayoob at the same time. All three were puchased in one month. Good start.

My first was one of the early Terzoula <img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>models, with the aluminium handles.
Plain blade. Still works great!!

I still remember when a former boss tried to confiscate it from me(with lust in his eyes towards my knife). And all he got from me is the "official NJ state Bird".

Spydercard 50/50 & Spydewrench PE.

I'd seen many <img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>s in various films over the years, 'blades with the roundhole in them', very distinctive looking knives, so it was inevitable I'd end up owning some.

My Tufram Plain Cricket, about 2 years ago.
Someone had showed it to me and it looked like a cool knife. Walked into an outdoorshop couple of months later and there was one on display. Wasn't priced either. Got it for approx $30 (75 NLG). <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0><img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>

Still my every day carry...

My first was a combo edge FRN Endura, I bought it off the Snap On Tools truck about 5 years ago. Two weeks later I bought a S/S Police S/E and shortly after a Native P/E FRN Gin-1.

I now own 25+ Spydercos and looking for early models to collect. <img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>

Spydercard... Don't leave home without it!
