Thanks for sharing, Louis, these are awesome!!! I really love that "All Gods Critters Have Knives" Pamphlet! Thats always seemed like an "iconic" Spyderco ad in my mind.

Also, interesting to see the C39 Dyad Jr. was originally called the "Gemini." Never knew that before. :)

I appreciate the offer!
ATM It's only the Delica 2 that i am wanting.. (wanting as in ready to pay a fair price for one, of course, any Spydie that falls in my lap for a song is interesting, but i am a realist) :)

I've got at least 3 boxes of Spyderco Memorabilia, Old Catalogs, Shop Posters and a myriad of stuff I got from their booth at shows over the years. I still have some of the old Ironstone stuff as well. I also kept many of the old issues of American Survival Guide magazine that had a lot of big one page adds of theirs.

I also have one of the first editions of "The Spyderco Story by Kenneth Delavigne. There is no shortage of Spyderco memorabilia to collect. Not to mention all the stuff that came with several of their models over the years.

Erik Remmen's Clipit class was the first MBC class using our knives. In the '80's. A great person and a great trainer.
