I got into Spydercos! And nice knives generally. For the first time. It's been weird...
I've carried a knife ever since I can remember but it was never a big deal which. I saved my aesthetic observations for watches or maybe bikes.
But having an interest in swords got me interested in blade steels, and construction, which then made me think, could I have a better knife? Or a less crappy one?
I started with a benchmade. It was nice but i found thumbstuds hard to open after a hand injury. I then thought, those spydercos... and tried one.
Now I have 2 Delicas, a Dragonfly, a Positron, a Native, an Endura, Military, Paramilitary2, and a Para3, in addition to a few others.
The irony is most days what do I carry? My old beat up delica lol.
But I do want another Delica. Just to have two regular ones in addition to the warnecliff. Maybe zdp. Maybe just a diff handle.
BTW I use the knives at work for opening stuff and when hiking / biking in the woods, and when I do have to use them i appreciate having a good knife and a good edge, compared to the crumby (ahem, "frost cutlery") stuff I grew up with...
ps. happy new year, rock on dudes.
