I bought my first Delica and Terzuola when they first came out in 1990. Then a full set of Goddards, a Terzuola Jr., Snap-It, and a Catcherman in the early 1990s.

Wow!! I'm blown away and very envious as well :cool: Because it wasn't until 1995 when I got my very first Spyder at a Gun Show here in Kansas City, Missouri USA Earth. My very first Spyder was the elegant MARINER model with a stainless handle and a GIN-1 blade. I had that knife up until about 2009 or thereabout.

It wasn't long after that I also got a stainless handled Police, a JD Smith early ATS-34 model and during that time I landed a full SE Military 440V model. Then I really went nuts from about 2002 till now :D

1991 I think. Serrated Mariner, purchased from AG Russell. In retrospect I would have preferred a plain edge blade.

Followed shortly by a serrated Endura.

The serrations were the heat with the G2 blades.

1st gen full SE Delica "ClipIt" in 1993 after I first noticed the Spyderco in the 1993 Stallone movie Cliffhanger. I think it was a Stainless Steel Police model.

Correction - I think it was a SE FRN Delica or Endura I saw in Cliffhanger. The SS Police model I saw was in another movie, just can't remember which.

Around 2003, an FRN Cricket and Catcherman (AUS-8, the thicker one).

I carried both for many years.

At the moment the only Spyderco I know I'm going to keep is the Warrior (both), and the Tatanka (until they make something similar with a disal taper FFG).
