Just wanted to say hey - introduction type jazz.

I'm new to Spyderco's - new to "real" knives in general in fact. (I've been carrying a beat up Gerber Gator for about 25 years...)

In any case, I recently scored two NIB Spyderco Embassy autos - one in silver and one in grey. Safe to say I've been spider bit now - I've got my eye on a few others already.

Anyway - see you around.

Greetings and I hope you don't have any kids expecting college money.

You might be bit, what is the next three Spydies you plan to buy?
On my radar: 110V Military, Police 4 and some sweet Rex 45 Military action.

Newest Spydies: S90v Ti Military, Pacific Salt and a special Kiwi.

Oh...and another Embassy in black if I can find one.

Welcome aboard amd enjoy your stay here. The Gerber Gator is one fine knife, I hope you'll find the Spydies equally pleasing.
Congratulations on your inspired choices, the Embassy has many interesting features.

WELCOME TO SPYDERVILLE :cool: No it's not Rod Serling's voice you hear about another dimension of sight or sound :rolleyes: >>> you've just entered into "THE SPYDER ZONE".

First and foremost we all bid you a hearty welcome to what I believe is the best knife forum on the entire web IMO. The one Brother is absolutely right about not expecting to fuel a college fund :D But you will sure have a great selection of folders and fixed blades when it's all said and done ;)

Glad you just became citizen of our Forum and now let the hunt for premium Spyderco models begin :cool: .

Welcome to the 12 step program. By 12 steps I just mean the next 12 knives you'll end up buying. It's a very slippery slope.
