Facebook showed me this photo from 2012 – my 1st Spyderco, the Stretch in ZDP-189, complemented by my 2nd, the Dragonfly 2 in ZPD-189. Every once in awhile they show you a photo "from this day" 1-10 years ago.
I had been saving up for a BM 940, when I got play with with a few Delicas and Enduras. Then someone showed me an FFG Delica. Finally, I saw the ZDP Stretch in a new Spyderco magazine and couldn't resist. I still think it's a hell of a pair. Great steel, great ergonomics, and so light! I feel like with these two knives you could do just about anything.
Unfortunately, I lost both of these around 2015, within a few weeks of one another. I do plan on replacing both, but I'd sure love to see a ZDP-189 Stretch with a Straight Spine in British Racing Green. :-)
What was your first Spyderco?
Edit: forgot the image!
