My submission for the 2020 Forum Calendar.

My Spyderco collection is pretty diverse and there's not one model that I'm partial to over another, so "all knives matter" in my collection, I'll rotate my carry based upon assumed tasks I could run into throughout the day, and I'll carry 1 or 2 knives on me as 1 knife is none, and two are better than none in my book.

Spydie's pictured: (I'm only missing two as I can't recall the tip of one and the scales of another off hand and didn't write down what I included when setting up this photo). Delica PLKIT1; Navtive C41PBK; Tenacious C122GBBKPS; Tasman Salt C106PYL; Pattada C204GP; Dice C182CFTIP; Ikuchi C242CFP; Remote Release C30SBK2; Delica C11SBK; Polestar C220GPGY (Knife Rights); Para 3 C223GP; Delica C11FPTL; Ladybug LYLS3HB; Silverax C228CFP; Paramilitary 2 C81GP2 scales replaced w/Copper; Tenacious C122GBBKP; Pingo C163PBK; Ouroboros C207GP; Squarehead C193TIP; Strech C90PBK2; Tasman Salt C106SBK; Dragonfly C28PBK2; Ladybug LBKP3; Dragonfly C28FPTL2; Cricket C29GFP; Delica C11FPOR; Rubicon C187CFP; Embassy C121PSBBK; Ambitious C148GP
My Owned :spyder: - Tasman Salt (C106PYL/C106SBK); Endura (C10PSBBK); Delica (C11FPOR/PLKIT/C11PSBK/C11FPTL x2); Embassy (C121BKPS); Tenacious (C122GBBKPS/C122GP/C122GBBKP); Kitchen Santoku (K08PBK); Yojimbo2 (C85GP2); Pattada (C204GP); SpyderPac (SP1 x4); Para 3 (C223GP); Ouroboros (C207GP); Dragonfly (C28PBK2 x2/C28FPTL2 x2); Squarehead (C193TIP); Ambitious (C148GP); Ladybug (LBKP3/LYLS3HB); Kitchen Utility (K04SBL); Cricket (C29GFP); Rescue (C14SBK3); Pingo (C163PBK); Native 5 (C41PSBK5); Gayle Bradley Folder (C134CFP); Rubicon (C187CFP); Dice (C182CFTIP); Remote Release II (C30SBK2); Manix (C101GP2 x2); Moran Drop Point (FB02PBB); Polestar (C220GPGY); Ikuchi (C242CFP); Sliverax (C228CFP)

My Wishlist :spyder: - Nirvana (C199TIP); Endura Damascus (C10TIPD); Hungarian (C173GP); Tusk (C06TIP); Roc (C177GP); Mamba (C196CFTIP); Reinhold Rhino (C210GP); Szabo Folder (C146CFBBKP); give it a day, more will be added, which requires a perpetual wishlist of SP1's.

My entry is a C75 Kiwi modified and customized by David Yellowhorse. He removed the original scales and the rear bolsters and replaced them with a custom inlaid design in stone and sliver that he called Night Eagle. Photo was taken several years ago on a well weathered tree stump while walking in John Boyd Thacher State Park.

I have always loved high end knives but unfortunately, have never been able to afford one. Thankfully, Spyderco and their collaborations with custom knife makers, make these "high end" knives affordable for the every day guy and gal. The Magnitude is easily my favorite knife to date.

Products featured, Magnitude and Sharpmaker

I did, but realized my file size was a hair over 15mb, resized and resubmitted without issue.

I’m at 14.9 mb so that shouldn’t be the issue. It’s popping up as “the website could not perform the action” with an error code

Try uploading a smaller file and see if it works. The same file can use different amounts of space on a HD depending on how the drive is formatted and the cluster size used. With your file size being so close to 15MB that would be my guess.

The Endura and Delica were in both introduced in 1990.
The year 2020 will be their 30th birthday and it should to be celebrated.

With the Endura and Delica, Spyderco got it right the first time.
Dam near perfect. I purchased a Endura in the early 90s and I still have it today.

But Spyderco listen to their customers and always seem to be looking at new steels, materials and always trying refining their products. So the evolution of the Endura and Delica began, :) 30 years of it.

:o My little collage is certainly not worthy of making the calendar, but I hope it will inspire others to use the Endura and Delica as a theme this coming year 2020 :D to help celebrate their 30th anniversary.

The one knife I always have on me is my Foliage Green VG-10 Spyderco Ladybug. The Spyderco Ladybug is a little big knife that has been more than capable at performing all of my edc tasks. It is pictured here within a cold war era 30mm shell casing of an inert training round I borrowed from my pop. The Spyderco Lady bug packs a wallop for its small stature!

This is a shot of the Spyderco Caribbean that I use while at work offshore. I am a Commercial Diver, and have been for over 12 years. I make sure not to enter the water without my Spyderco Atlantic Salt and Pacific Salt knives on my dive harness. For topside work, I have chosen the Caribbean. With the majority of the materials we cut offshore being fibrous, the Spyderedge is 2nd to none for the job.
