First time spyderco owner--love it!

Postby Cowboyfromhell » Sun Apr 14, 2019 8:22 pm

Hello every one, I just joined the forum tonight and this is my first post of many I'm sure. I have been soaking up the knowledge on this forum for the last week or two and have since that time purchased my first ever knife over the $50 dollar Mark--a PM2 black s30v!! My co-workers all carry various different spydercos and love showing them off. I felt a little left out when all I had to show them was my trusted kershaw clash I think? Had it over ten years amazingly and never lost it or broke it. Actually passed it down to my 15 the old daughter for her first knife. The PM2 fit me like no other folder I ever owned. I really admire this knife for the rugged build quality and lifetime warranty plus it looks cool. Very happy so far and will continue to test my new edc. I actually picked up a back up PM2 in s110v blue g10. To round out the trio I picked up a dragonfly 2 H1 salt serrated!!! .....I wonder what will come home next??

Welcome to the forum! Really nice choices for first Spydercos, and real classics... ;)
I have had quite a few Spydies over the years, but never a PM2 till quite recently. Always thought I would not like it too much (without ever having handled one to be honest).
Then Zatx, a forum-member, very kindly gifted one to me, and what can I say... I am really surprised how much I like that knife. Still I am preferring backlocks and especially my Stretch 1s, but really not by much...

Enjoy your Spydies, looking forward to reading more of your thoughts on the knives!
Top three going by pocket-time: Endura 4 in VG 10/Micarta-scales; Stretch 1 in VG 10; Endura 4 in HAP 40

Welcome and congrats on your new acquisitions! I have several PM2 in various popular steels but the s110v really caught me by surprise, I am loving it. Hope it serves you well too (and your s30v is no slouch either).

Welcome and glad you are here! Congratulations on your PM2 purchase. You are now the proud owner of a knife made by the best knife making company on the planet (IMHO).
