Even though I joined this forum in 2017 I have been a huge fan of Spyderco since the Centofante 4. It was my first Spyderco. Im not sure what year that was. Irregardless, I have seen many post about the "Golden Years" (1998-2003) of Spyderco. There is a lot of merit to those years, but I think we have entered another "Golden Age". Its a time when there are so many awesome and unique exclusives, sprints, collaborations, and production models being released. Manufacturing techniques, CQI, and metallurgy have brought production to a new level. What a great time to be a collector or user and be a part of Spyderco history.
