Count ‘em up and share

Postby SF Native » Tue Aug 27, 2019 9:47 pm

Told my daughter that people are a little bored on the forum and starting games. She said she wanted to count all my spydercos. Fixed blades, kitchen knives, mules, folders, in the car, in the spyderpac, in a drawer, on the desk... all of them.
I said the big question is “is it over 50?”
Wrong spyderholic, it’s officially 88. :eek:

So, count them up and share which ones are special and why.

Special is the tufram police that Sal just sent to me as a charity give away and the red Persian, such a cool design.

I counted users, back-ups, retired knives and the ones I'm thinking about trading / selling.

18 Spydercos, and 1 CE Byrd Cara Cara that's been MIA since 2018.

Special ones?

Police 3 that I bought as soon as they came out. Carried off and on for a decade, rotating with my Millies and PM2. Lots of memories attached to it. First dates, job interviews, a few moves, etc.

Aqua Salt PE that Sal sent me for doing something dumb with an Endura. I beat the hell out of it over the years. It's the knife that opened my eyes to the carbon steel level of toughness H1 has, and made me realize rust proof isn't the only amazing quality of this unique steel.

Tasman Salt. This is from the very first run, one of the first ones to be made without a CC number. It was my first H1 knife, first serrated Spyderco, and first hawkbill from any company. It's had a rough life as a pure beater, slicing dirty and heavily abrasive materials I didn't want to subject my nicer knives to.
Current favorites:

||| Street Beat LW ||| Pacific Salt 2 SE LC200N ||| Manix XL M4 DLC ||| Police 4 LW K390 |||

i only have seven, which is pretty low for around here, but they are a very selective seven and i only have two hands, so it’s about five more than i need. i have been fortunate enough to have visited the sfo though, so i’ve experienced most of the regularly available knives in hand, which really informed my purchases. nothing in that store could kick the manix out of my pocket except a yojimbo and that’s only because it’s such a cool looking knife.

25 :spyder: folders. Another 10-15 in various other manufactures, including several fixed blades. Man, trying to account for them all made my head hurt. And I realize compare to some of you, I ain't go much. I should keep a spreadsheet or something.

In terms of the special ones, I have three and they are all Golden. Steel may vary depending on what is sharp at the moment.

Twenty-five Spyderco folders (although one of them is a Byrd), three Spyderco fixed-blade knives, twelve steel types. I used to own a Para 3 Lightweight but gifted it to my brother. As for special ones... I like them all, but I am especially fond of my combo edge Natives & Delicas which are mainstays in my work knife rotation & my Dragonflies (my very first Spyderco was a Dragonfly).

One of these days I hope to get a Manix, something by Fred Perrin (maybe a Street Beat or a Swick), something by Bob Terzuola, something by Ulrich Hennicke, a Li'l Native, something by Paul Alexander, and an original Worker.

Can't count at the moment but I'd say I'm somewhere in the 40s.

"Just" eleven.

Deliberately try to limit the Spydies I have at any given point in time to "around ten" (One of those I have currently was a gift). So I have to sell some from time to time of course.

9 of them lockbacks, 9 of them FRN, 8 of them belonging to the "Endura family" (if you count the Stretch as a "member").

No Spyderco fixed blades.

Ah, yes, plus only ONE quality folder anymore that is NOT a Spyderco... ;)

3 - Ladybug
2 - Manbug
1 - Chaparral LW
8 - Delica
1 - Tasman Salt
2 - Positron
4 - Endura

21 - Total

My favorites are my ZDP-189 Delica, carbon fiber Positron, and serrated Endura. Each of the Lady/Manbugs is on a 1 1/4" split-ring key-ring along with my two door keys. The two keys and large split-ring serve as a lanyard of sorts and greatly enhance my grip when using the little knives (If needed,I'll slide my little finger into the ring). If I'm away from home I'll have my house keys which means I'll also have a knife.

I've only discovered Spyderco for a little over a year now and went a little crazy once the BITE sunk in! A quick count I totaled 31 :spyder: 's

Mules have bit me the hardest and probably have enjoyed them more than the folders.

(6) PD#1's (plus 2 gifted)
(5) PMA11's
(1) CPM 4V
(1) RWL-34
(1) CTS-B70P

Para 3's:

BBS M390
Rex 45
CF 52100
St. Nicks 4V

Paramilitary 2:

Blurple S110V
Rex 45
DLT M390 (One for me one for my son he just left for school,WKU Red, but he though it was too big to carry around campus so I sold his)


KC Hap40 Pakkawood


BB S30v

ZDP-189 Manbug, VG10 Ladybug, Endura V-toku2 and my beloved Sprint Spyderhawk!

Most days the BBS para3 is in my pocket and is my most carried knife, the blue is perfect for a Dodger and WIldcats fan. Gifted family over 25 Byrds and a few Spydies over last Christmas, so to think I've purchased over 50 knives in a year is a little least from my wife's pov, I'm fine with it :D

"Only" 31 Spydies. But that's about a third of my collection, which now includes 40 different steels. Good grief.

I have 20 different steels among my 31 unique Spyderco models. I've had around 60 :spyder: total so far, and I've been trying to cut back recently.

Most are special to some extent, but these stand out:
  • HAP40 Endura was gifted to me by my wife and the first with which I whittled a hair
  • All of my Manixes because CBBL is the best
  • Kapara was my calendar contest prize last year
  • Cruwear Para 3 for some intangible reason
  • The smooth green G10 of my Native 5 is just awesome
  • Red M390 PM2 was one that I passed on during the first run only to kick myself every time I saw one.
  • P.I.T.S. and I have a love-hate relationship. It was an impulse buy of a low wear resistance steel in a pricey package, and the titanium anodizing blemishes super easily, but I like everything else about it.
Own: Delica, old S30V Native, pointy Breeden Rescue, Delica, HAP40 Endura, ZDP DF2, S110V Manix LW,Pakka Delica, Cru-wear Para 3, SE H1 DF2, M4 Manix, HAP40 Caly 3, S90V Native 5, K390 Urban, Pakka DF2, Cruwear PM2, SE Pac Salt, HAP40 Jazzlica, S110V Native, P.I.T.S., DLC Manix, REX 45 PM2, Para 3, XHP Manix LW, SB Caly 3, 20CV PM2, Rhino, SB Calypso Jr., B70P, PMA11, K03, ZDP Stretch 2, Kapara, REX 45 Military, 154CM Manix LW, 204p PM2, Swick, SG Delica, BL Lil'Native, AEB-L Urban, HAP40 Stretch, KC Cruwear Manix, Cruwear Military, M390 PM2, Cruwear Delica, 4V Lil'Native, Mantra 2, CruCarta Shaman, M390 Para 3 LW, M390 Manix, K390 Police 4, RexWood Shaman, DLC Cruwear Shaman, Rex 45 Manix, Native 5, Native LW, 204p Para 3, S45VN PM2, S90V Manix LW, 20CV Manix, Rex 45 Lil’Native, Shaman, C208GP, Cruwear Manix, Cruwear Manix
