I have dabbled in Spyderco knives over the past few years, have bought and sold a few, and have kept a few precious ones long term, but I hadn't "went crazy" for a model until I discovered the Para 3. I have always really liked the PM2, and I really like larger knives in general, but for some reason, the Para 3 really does it for me. Maybe it's the timing. I didn't have the extra cash when all the cool variants of the PM2 were coming out, so trying to collect all of them on the secondary market just seemed to be too cost prohibitive. I seemed to have discovered the Para 3 early enough that I can work on trying to collect the variants that I missed out on so far without breaking the bank.
Anyway, here is my Para 3 collection so far. Let's see what everyone else has as well!
