I had over 80 Spydercos at one point. Lil Temps, ATR's, S90V/CPMD2/S60V/S30V Millies, Forester, tip up wire clip Para 1, ZPD calys and much, much more.
I sold off everything except for knives I had an immediate use for or had sentimental value.
I kept my Police 3 I bought at New Graham on a road trip through VA. It was one of my favorite folders and had sentimental value for a few reasons. It was my dressier pocket knife.
I kept a CPMD2/digicamo Military that I've since lost. It was my go to EDC.
Kept a SE Tasman Salt as my skateboard griptape knife, and general glove box dirty job knife.
Pacific Salt PE as my summer EDC. CPMD2 doesn't interact well with sweat, and I frequently carry IWB, so the Pacific Salt was my go to summer EDC before I bought a coated Para 2 that I'd carry year round.
Kept an Aqua Salt for camping/hiking use + sentimental value.
I also bought a Perrin Street Bowie when they brought it back to production, because I enjoyed the design of the Street Beat and never got to handle the original. I really like the design, but don't really have a use for it and will most likely sell it one of these days.
That was all I kept. I've since added a Para 2 and plan to replace the lost Military, then after that I'm about done.
I'll still keep my eyes open for a Military 2 or ATR revival though. Both of those could potentially interest me ebough for become my new EDC. But as much as I admire different designs they make each year, very few folders they make compete with the Military for comfort, ease of use and light weight. None compete with the Pacific Salt for its practicality, rust proof qualities, and incredible size/weight ratio. None of the fixed blades would serve my use better then the Aqua Salt.
I don't have any interest in collecting anymore. It feels like a waste of time and money to me. But I still love Spydercos and keep one in my pocket every day. I only buy knives I plan to use, and I can only use so many, so my collection remains small.
