I wonder if Spyderco would consider a different kind of collectors club for the rest of us that don’t want to buy every night nor can afford to do so? This would be a big help and give us collector status for those of us who actually do collect Spyderco knives .
I’ve known of collectors that got labeled as extremist and as some sort of crazy people because they didn’t belong to an official collector organization. They were labeled by overzealous DAs and police officers trying to make a name. But have having membership in an actual organization goes to show them that we are really collectors.
Me for example, I collect typically the smaller pocket knives. Not everyone but representations of each type. I don’t collect every Spyderco knife because I want to stay married. Ha ha Ha ha ha ! But it would certainly help me as a veteran and an ex pat living overseas to show that I am indeed a collector and not some nutcase.
I would pay yearly dues as long as it was not too much because of the exchange rate. We could also have a newsletter or other such things That got emailed out.
What say you all!
