I chose the Spyderco Bradley Folder. When it arrived I was inspired to try my hand at carving immediately. For my first carving, I decided to attempt a heart shape for my lovely wife of 10 years. After the heart was finished, I went for a walk to gather wildflowers. Then presented my gifts to my sweet, beautiful wife.

I'm wondering how others posted their picture so large? My original is 2048x1152 , great quality. I have to reformat and submit such a small size..

It looks like you posted your pic as an attachment rather than linking a pic hosted on a photo hosting site.
Of all the things I've lost I miss my mind the most!

There are now three photos featuring the Manix 2 XL GITD. Weird.

Great pictures thus far everyone and good luck to those still busy getting the perfect shot!
I think most entries will end up being posted in the last week, so we've all got that to look forward to as well! :D
As promised, I chose the Spyderco Captain:

Image


Forum name: DutchBlades
Model: Spyderco Captain ~ C111G

Spyderco has provided a platform for unique designs since it's early days
and the Captain is an amazing example of this artistic freedom.
The compound grind, bladeshape and overall looks are unprecedented in any other model,
whilst still maintaining Spyderco's trusted style and performance.
Here the Captain stands amongst it's plentiful treasure, shimmering in the last light of day.
A knife fit for for any landlubber and seadog alike!


(I noticed PhotoBucket stores images at a lower quality than the original.
If needed I can provide the original via email.)

Title: Diamonds are forever
Username: Thorien
Model: Spyderco Chaparral Titanium (C152TIP)


The Spyderco Chaparral Titanium (C152TIP) has been part of the line up for a few years now but is a recent purchase for me. It is, however one that I wish I had made even sooner! This really is the consummate gentleman’s pocketknife. It is pocket friendly in size and weight, elegant and poised and yet tough and ready for action when needed. The Blade opening is silky smooth and the back lock inspires confidence in use. The design of the scales is fabulous giving a good grip for something so thin. I really love the texturing and angles on the scales given by that diamond pattern, so much so that it inspired me to make this image. I guess the old adage really is true in this case: Diamonds are forever!
Cue the music.... :)

I have always appreciated the variety and uniqueness of the Paramilitary 2 line. The Paramilitary 2's in this picture represent clothes which also comes in many different combinations and variety. We pair a different shirt with a different pair of pants everyday because the industry provides us with this luxury. We are allowed to choose a favorite shirt that has our favorite color much like how we can choose a Paramilitary 2 with our favorite steel and/or color. Life stays unique and interesting with so many choices to choose from so thank you Spyderco for providing us with so many options to choose from for the Paramilitary 2!

Title: The Spyderco Grip

Username: Spygineer

Description: I often wonder what it is about Spyderco that has a hold on me. Is it the visual aesthetic, the build quality and functionality of their product, or is it what the company represents as a whole? Nevertheless, ever since I discovered Spyderco nearly 10 years ago, I have dramatically expanded my collection and carried one nearly every day. Which begs the question: When it comes to all things Spyderco, who really has a hold on who?

@Spygineer, ha ha, I sometimes feel much the same way, except I always carry at least two every day, one usually a Dragonfly in a shirt pocket. And my collection has grown so big I've had to do what any sensible and responsible person would do... stop counting them ;)

In addition to the things you named, I think they fulfill some basic human instinct... now if I could just discover some other basic human instinct and capitalize on it, to help support the grab-Spyderco instinct.

Username: napalmfriday
Model: Burch Chubby C183TIP

Of all of my Spyderco knives, the Chubby was never one that really caught my eye prior to acquiring it. Don't get me wrong, I appreciated it, but for whatever reason it never made my "must have" list. It wasn't until a perfect stranger put it up for trade that I decided to give it a try and low and behold, it's spent more consistent time in my pocket than any purchase to date!
This picture was taken on a hiking trail that my wife and I frequent located in a near by state park. I just happened to glance down and to my immediate left while sitting at an overlook that showcases Lake Catherine, I noticed this gorgeous patch of moss adorning a near by rock and it was calling the Chubby's name.

Forum name: Filoso-
Model: Spyderco Sage 2 C123TiP


Image

The Sage series honours to the best locking devices and mechanisms and their respective inventors. In the same platform, every version focus on a different lock mechanism.
The knife in the photograph pays homage to Chris Reeve and his magnificent Reeve Integral Lock (R.I.L.). This mechanism uses the handle scale as the lock's liner.
I have chosen this knife because it is my favorite version of the Sage series at the moment, and it helps me to bear the waiting for the new Sage 5... :rolleyes:

Title: Zenning
Username: TheArchitect
Model: Spyderco Squarehead C193TIP :spyder:

My Spyderco Squarehead complete with paracord lanyard and flamed titanium bead to give it that extra handle grip is showcased in a Zen like quality. Since acquiring the Squarehead it has maintained a spot in my front pocket. While sitting in my lawn chair Zenning in my small garden with my Squarehead in hand I cut a small flower from the flower bed and created a small Zen inspired Spyderco garden.
