Only 3 for me so far

Bhq m4 pm2
Mantra (calendar contest)
Military (deacon's contest)

I'm mostly waiting for the rhino to drop. Will probably buy a couple of those.

I'm almost embarrassed at how many I've added so far this year, almost :D I really did get carried away on the HAP's, I think I ended up with 16 after the dust settled.

Caught multiples on all the sprints and exclusives(PM2 and militarys) Numerous disco'd models I've been after. I'd say I'm probably somewhere around 40 so far this year and have a bunch more on my list of must haves that haven't even dropped yet. It really has been an epic year so far for Spyderco. :) :spyder:

Sound s like your hitting on most of them, I'm sure there will be some unexpected ones like usual, I'm thinking we will see at least one or two manix2's yet, hopefully a cruwear. Yea we still have a ways to go this year, I'll be grabbing a few rhinos, euroedge x2, sage 5, CF manix etc.

This year:
(Delica 4 HAP-40 @ Xmas '15)
Dragonfly 2 HAP-40 in March
Mantra in May
Ladybug Hawkbill Salt in June
Nirvana in July

And that'll do me for the rest of the year unless something comes out so good that I can convince my wife that she wants it or wants me to have it. ;)
Anything else I buy will be non-knives; I want another flashlight, and maybe a nice pen.

In these days I pride myself much more, when I am passing on the knife, which I really do not need, to compare, when under the forum pressure I am buying a knife, which just one day or sooner after receiving will raise a question:"Why did I buy it?" :eek: :o :(
So far I sucsesfully passed on both Millies and BHQ para. Tomorrow will pass on KW para as well. I think that I am on the way to be cured from addiction.

Well said, Roman. The biggest obstacle (at least in my opinion) is well-intentioned peer pressure from the other spydernuts. ;) If one can remain firm on their resolve, the sting of not getting a new knife only lasts for a few moments.

I think 6 Spydies. I have bought 6 other knives that aren't Spydies though.

Busiest year I've had in a while. Typically I have a one new knife per year rule. Between the ATR 2 and Police 4 no way that's happening until 2018 at the earliest :D

CTS-204P Military
Pacific Salt black blade (Can't find any satin finish PE black handled Pacific Salts!)
Szabo Folder
ARK

I only buy knives I have an immediate use for, and if I can't go to a store / website and find it for sale (S90V framelock Millie) I pass. This helps :p

Pretty lacking year for me, and I'm totally ok with that. I've gotten 3 Militaries (two 52100 and one S110V) and the Mantra 1 from the calendar contest, and that's it. Kind of interesting considering I used to have zero interest in the Military at all, and now I own 4 of them.
