collector newbie from germany

Postby MarcusH » Sun Aug 28, 2011 10:24 am

Hello everybody,

my first posting. I’ve been reading around here for quite a while, but my English is due to lack of practice not too good.
Let me introduce myself: I’m 47 years of age, married with two lovely children. My main activities besides my job and knife collecting are mountain bike riding, snowboarding (unfortunately only once a year for 7 days in the last few years), photography and chess, not to forget obedience trailing with my German shepherd dog.

I got my first spydie at the beginning of this year; it was the 4th of January 2011, if I remember correctly, and I bought a centofante 3 at the böker store here in Solingen, Germany.
Immediately I liked it a lot, so eventually I sold all my benchmades or traded them for a spydie. Right now I have a nice little collection, see pic.

So, I have a little puzzle for you. I still have one BM, as it has some spydiestyle, but I mirror polished it, so that you can’t see the butterfly anymore.
It’s hidden in the picture. Can you spot it?

Greetings from Germany

Some very nice Spydies you have there Marcus; I'm particularly fond of the Tim Zowada.

BM 740 Lum Dejavoo under the Orange Millie.

It's not just in my head, it's in my heart.

Welcome aboard, Marcus!

You certainly have a very nice collection of Spydies. Great picture! :) To answer your question, I would say the BM is the sixth knife above from the bottom left side of your picture. (I'm not sure the make/model of the BM... After all, my name is "SpyderNut" ;) ).

Take care,

It's definitely the lum dejavoo. Which has already been mentioned. It's the one under the orange Millie. I just found the mini version with all black for a great price, it's in the mail

Welcome to the forums and very nice collection

Welcome to the forum, MarcusH!

Hope you will enjoy your stay here, you will find lots of very knowledgeable folks here.

I did guess right, the BM is the knife below the orange millie.
