OFFICIAL Show yer PM1 & PM2 - C81 Para-Military

The first Spyderco knife was made in 1976 under the direction of Sal Glesser. The company started out as a traveling entity as Sal & his wife, Gail, traveled from show to show. The first permanent establishment was in Golden, Colorado where the company made its first folding knife in 1978. The company proudly touts their knives as being different, peculiar, even out there. "We may look curious, homely, whatever, but we'll never be called unusable or undependable."

I talked about it with Josh in PMs but I see I never responded in this thread. Mia culpa.

"The difference" I can't tell is between one model of Spyderco and another. They all look alike to me except for the occasional handle material or handle color. Maybe if I was into Spydercos like y'all are I could identify the different models but I'm not and I can't. ::shrug::

As I told Josh, I'm not dis'n Spyderco's, it's just an observation. And I did buy one to see what they're all about. Bought an orange Delica at the factory store when I was out in CO a couple of years ago. Paid waaaaay more than I could have gotten it for off eBay just so I could say it came from the factory store. I guess you could say it's a souvenir of our trip to CO like the t-shirt from the Denver Hard Rock Cafe. :mrgreen:

I like the thumb hole in the blade much more than thumbstuds.
