Great photos of sentimental Spydies, many thanks to each of you.

Here's some late add-on with info about the model.

This is a Mariner "Paramedic" version. Key points:

1. Slab side scales like other early Mariners
2. "Short" back lock
3. Unmarked steel; Paramedics were GIN-1, same gen/unmarked Mariners were AUS 8
4. Absent "Mariner" marking on blade
5. Thin scale opposite the clip side scale, which was full thickness

(Addendum for the Wiki, if anyone wants to update with #6. Lots of older spydies have unlisted variations..)
6. * Most* Paramedics had a smaller lanyard hole, but this one has the large hole.
(Likewise, *most* Mariners had the large lanyard hole, but I have a LH PE with the small hole)

good luck,
a n.on

It’s got to be Thursday somewhere...
This just arrived for a purveyor of old goodies.
The top swedge is more prominent than the Super blue caly jr. I like it.
Also, wishing for more micarta. This is my first.

Not sure if this allowed, but there is a Wayne Goddard for sale on /r/Knife_Swap. I haven't seen many throwback Spydies for sale there before.

Note: this is not my knife
