Resilience in 2014 or early 2015. That didn't "Trigger" the Spydievirus, but a few months later I got the Pacific Salt, which is still today the most perfect EDC folder for me, and in quickly succession 14 Spydies were added to the collection, plus 4 Byrds :p

My first was the Black CF Positron, around this time last year when it on clearance. Before that, I had never spent more than ~$35 on a knife. It sold me on Spyderco and on quality steel.

I carried a CRKT M16 for probably 5 years through the end of high school and college. When I got my first real job one of the first things I wanted was a "nice" knife and I sprung for a Spyderco Citadel Auto. Problem was that it was truly my first real nice knife and I was afraid to cut anything with it. Now I have the knife bug and I'm trying to collect the standards but in colors I like or sprint runs. Got my first endura this year in Vtoku and the green/black pm2.

Just ordered my first one on Sunday and received shipping notice yesterday for a Lil’ Native Compression Lock. Should have by next Monday. Looking forward to seeing first hand what the excitement of Spyderco’s is about.

My First was a Pm2 camo/Black, when i got it i couldn't put it down. Constantly flicking the knife for weeks.
I felt that i had purchased something spesial..
I have been chasing that feeling ever since, but no mather what knife the postmann brings, it's never the same. Sometimes it's close enough, so I keep On ordering knives. :)

Mine was a Persistence that I absolutely love and carried as my EDC briefly before purchasing a couple other Spydercos. I've since quickly fell in love with the Para 3 and have a full blown case of Spydivirus... especially for the Para 3 and all the recent Sprints and Exclusives. Now, much like Mom3ntuM, I find myself chasing that feeling and cant wait for the next Para 3 Sprint run or Exclusive to drop.
Too many Military family variants... and yet not enough.

First gen Worker. Followed by a first gen Delica. The Worker accidentally ended up at the bottom of Sportsman Lake. Still have the Delica.

I've said it several times before here on the forum but it doesn't hurt to repeat it because it did truly change my mindset on how I view knives as tools and necessary gear for all kinds of jobs that you would encounter in every day life.

It was April of 1995 at a Gun Show we had here in Kansas City. We had at the time two very good knife dealers that showed up at all of the Gun Shows. I had been wanting to get a high quality serrated blade and two buddies at the time that I hunted with both said that Spyderco is the only way to go with serrated blades and at the time they really had no serious competition. How true that turned out to be.

So I got a stainless handled, full Spyderedged, GIN-1 MARINER model>> and as many narrators would say "The Rest Is History" :cool: that started an addiction/obsession that hasn't even slowed down since that day in April of 1995.

It wasn't long after that I got my first POLICE model (ATS-55 unit) and my first JD Smith model. You might say that the dam broke :eek:
