The Dragonfly 2 in Zome Green VG-10 and the Para Military 2 in CPM S30V are my first two Spyderco knives, and the basis by which I'm judging all others. The Dragonfly is sheer perfection, and I can think of nothing that would warrant a version 4 upgrade. The Para Military 2 is hands-down, no-contest, without question the best knife I've ever owned, and I can promise you it will never leave my possession. Thank you to Sal, Eric, and all the fine people at Spyderco for quality products you produce. Any images we can submit are merely shadows of your true art.

Model: Spyderco Tasman Salt
Forum name: wec12

Chose my oldest gold, Spyderco Tasman Salt, to be the model because I still remember the child-like anticipation and the pure joy when receiving my very first hawkbill Spyderco 12 years ago. The simple thrill when opening daily mails and boxes with the bonus of rustproof is really indescribable; hope the photo shows component of thrill and rustproof well.

Been loving this M4 Para 3 ever since i got it. Looks great, good ergonomics, edge retention, etc... This so far is my first post on the forum so hello to everyone, definitely a lot of awesome pics guys. I took this picture not too far from my house when going out for a walk earlier, there is a old Japanese Maple that has a hollow in the trunk that collects water and i thought it looked pretty cool so..

This summer we took our family vacation in Arizona. I decided to take my Slysz Bowie with me, to photograph in this beautiful state. I must have taken over 50 photographs with it at the Grand Canyon, Sedona, and on mountain trails. Overall, this photo, taken in Sedona, is my favorite. It was just starting to rain, so the sun was not glaring off the blade. I loved this old fence post withe the metal wire wrapped around it. I think this knife was designed with this type of landscape in mind. It's like it was at home in this setting.

I have a lot of Spyderco knives that I really like. But the Slysz Bowie has been the one I have carried the most.

Model: Spyderco Police 4
Forum name: DougC-3

The Police 4 has surprisingly turned out to be one of my most favorite and frequently used models in spite of its large size. It turns out that the huge blade, at just under 4.5 inches, is great for all kinds of kitchen work, and the K390 steel rarely needs sharpening. Also, it's fun to watch the K390 develop a patina. I photographed it against the small pack to emphasize its size.

Hey everyone,

I realize I'm a newbie, but I didn't see anything in the rules that mention a minimum membership timeframe or post count, so I thought I would try this out anyway. Even if I don't qualify for some unstated reason, we have another piece of eye candy to look at, right? :D

I'm actually very new to the world of knives in general, not just to Spyderco, so I'm literally just getting my feet wet.

Here's a piece I'm sure everyone here is familiar with: The Delica. This photo was taken in a treed area along a pathway that's right near our home -- where I run, where the dog goes for a walk, where we take our toddler to burn off some energy. The colours of this photo spoke to me, as orange + grey were actually our wedding colours! It's a shot of familiar things and a new interest rolled into one.

Model: Urban K390

The K390 Urban has quickly become my favorite EDC knife. The edge eats through wood like nothing and I rarely have to bother sharpening it. Thanks to Spyderco for holding this contest!

I just posted my photo, but I guess after such a long period of inactivity I have to wait for moderator approval! Please approve my photo before the deadline!

My Picture is of the Manix FRN in translucent blue
I love the shapes that these knives come in as Spyderco strives to achieve superior ergos. I think in this picture the Manix looks like it is a fat little duck waking up. :)

All I can say is, wow. I am glad I entered my photo when I did. If I had waited until today like I originally planned, I probably would not have entered. There are a lot of great photos. I doubt I will make the calendar, but just being able to have a chance with some really great photographers and photos is a blessing.

Thank you Spyderco and Kristi for the great experience. Also thank you to Liquid Cobra and CommercialDalton for helping me along the way. I have a new respect and appreciation for the world of photography, and it is because of you both.
