    My first Spyderco was Delica 4. Actually, I think it was my first decent knife.

    First Spyderco was the stainless vg-10 dragonfly I think 3 years ago. Still have the knife but it totally changed my mind about stainless handles; that thing got mucked up very quickly and the weight made it unattractive to me for something that small. It was also too small for my rather large hands and I was an amateur to the knife community then and didn't appreciate its steel quality that much. I simply wanted a spyderco to see what the hype was about. My experience with the dfly kept me away from spydies for awhile as I got into bigger knives and autos with poorer steels that I could actually afford. That is until recently. Just got fed up with poor quality blades so I ordered a long sought after model for me in the Superleaf when I heard it was discontinued. After a few years of looking, experimenting, and compromising based on price, I think my purchases for the foreseeable future will be spydies.

    ...Hours later ordered the blue g-10 persistence. Just had to have it, love the look/color and 8cr13 is a great value steel in my mind.

    I bought the Spyderco Q folder. Unreal how light it is. The serrations make it scarey sharp.

    My first was the Tenacious. Never had a knife that well made, or as sharp! I got quite a few Spydie bites learning how to open and close it! I just got the left handed Military! What a great knife for people that use the "wrong" hand! Not sure what the next Spydie will be, but there will be more!

    my first was a benchmade dejavoo ;)
    tenacious being a ffg folder with hole opener i figured it was what spyderco was all about so why not, its not that expensive. i then said well they started the serrated edge, and that endura had my name on it with big brown puppy dog eyes so i got that one next. then someone have me an old progrip model with plastic clip is flat ground with sander and spindle sanded the serrations a bit to restore them. then my wife and i went shopping and got me a dragonfly when we first met. then i got a native, best heat treat in my whole collection imo. my parents got me the bug set after i bought myself a stretch in vg 10, and for my birthday i got the zdp mangub, cat, and resilience
