Spyderco Pins finally

Postby Mini2white » Tue Sep 18, 2018 12:31 pm

This lot have been gathering for over 20 years but only seriously for about 4 years. It was when I had few that I realised i might have a shot at getting them all together. Sure I don't have the gold employee pin, but almost no one does and it doesn't really fit into the series.

But is there anyone else out there that likes and or collects these?

Nice collection. I have one, the Euroedge I picked up at Blade Show 2017.

I honestly thought those were all real knives! Lol. Couldn't figure out the weird photo composition. :D

Nice collection. I don't think I've ever heard of Spyderco pins before.

When we first began making byrds, we were promoting their ancestry of dinosaurs with feathers and teeth. The pin was based on a dino with feathers and teeth.

Thank you Sal. It is nice to get the back ground behind the pin.

Thanks Sal. Very cool and unique marketing concept.

Mini2white, would you mind posting a close up pic of the Byrd dino pin? It was fun last night digging into the forum history on these, but I couldn't get a clear image of this one specifically. Fingers crossed your gold bug finds you soon!

I don't mind at all. I love showing these off. It is hard to find clear photos of a lot of the pins online or so I found. It isn't enough to carry and use a great knife or even collect them. I also love collecting things like the pins.

That’s really great! I have had a few of those over the years, but I’ve never even seen half of those! Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for the great shot M2w. I'm pretty sure I speak for everyone when I say that you would be a welcome curator for the :spyder: pins. It would be great to have close up shots of every pin, information on them (model/variant sku, date released, event(s) they were given out at, production info, anything really) and a shot with their full-sized counterpart for comparison. Not to task you too much, but I have a feeling you wouldn't mind :D Like I said it was fun tracking down what I could, but as you noted, there is a ton of missing in-depth documentation on these. It would be great to have it all in one place for future refrence (SpydiePinWiki if you will.)

Sounds like a worthy project. The dates released on earlier models I don't have.

Beautiful collection. I have a few Spyderco Pins that I've been fortunate to acquire over the years.
