You know you're a Spyderco lover when.......

Postby SpyderEdgeForever » Mon Jan 06, 2014 7:45 pm

........you judge the price of everything else by how many Spyderco knives you can get with the same amount of money!

....the thoughts of at least one or more Spyderco knives go through your mind daily.

......you would have retractable Spyder-edged blades at your finger-tips if it was physically possible.

Anyone care to add others?

Man don't get me started on dreams...

I tend to go into any place that sells knives just to look to see if they carry Spydercos, only to be disappointed and then stand there shaking my head at the other brands' offerings.

LOL I get that too, but then I also have a bunch of other weird interests, so my suggested vids are really random, from video game stuff to wood working, but really most of my You Tube time is spent researching bands/music. I try to be careful how much I take in from You Tube review videos, because I don't like to be swayed too much by other peoples opinions.

I am not yet ready to admit my addiction, I still get up and go to work every morning so I am fine. I use to knit but I was forced to give that up on the request of my wife and children ... why I still don't know.

I hate it when I see a place actually selling some Spydercos and then I look at the price and it's so grossly overinflated I just can't justify it. For example, Cabela's selling the Military for $220. The normal G-10 military.... Pisses me off since I have a gift card there from the holidays and would like to spend it on a knife, but it just doesn't make sense.

... you know you will never get another firearm again because every time you have a hundred dollars or so you can't stop looking at what Spydie you could get instead.

... you look for additional items to be cut in a day when you feel you have neglected your carry blade for that day.

... your wife yells out in a room of friends, "hey honey bring me one of those blades with the hole in it"



I can do this all day!

When your wife picks one up, examines it and opens it and judges it by the action. Also she has a designated Spyderco for kitchen duties. She also noticed right away when I bought a non-Spyderco (0801).

When you look at every single person's right/left pocket and try to determine if they're carrying a knife--and if so, whether it's a Spyderco.

When you are almost happier to gift a Spyderco or have your friend buy one than get one yourself since nothing beats spreading the addiction...
