  • Howdy from South West Vic

    I'm from Geelong and have been prowling the forum for quite a few weeks now. Purchased a beautiful Spydy Endura 2 stainless (Aus-8 blade) from one of the guys & I love it. I have a bit of a Spyderco fetish & find them irresistible and just a little bit sexy, I'll stop at that!
    Like many of the new people here I don't have a huge collection (yet), Spydy Endura 2 C10-P, Buck 112, Sog Tomcat, Pacific Salt, Spydy Kiwi, Muela fixed blade, Leatherman K500x lockback (which is surprisingly good & has a 154cm blade), Navy K-620G (cheap but handy & feels OK) + a nice little 'Old Timer' that was an unexpected gift with my C10-P Endura & is nice.
    I fish a bit (love Tassie & the Snowy's), heading off for 4 days Trout expedition tomorrow, camp in the better weather (I'm getting old!) and do a bit of photography, trying some astrophotography on this trip.
    I love the forum, will definitely be making another purchase or two from you guys when I save a few pennies (giving away my age) and appreciate the friendly and helpful manner of the few people that have touched base with me.
    That's all for now, thanks & have a great weekend when it arrives.

        Pacific Salt! That's just a great fisherman's knife. Careful of the military & paramilitary 2, those two really stressed my kitty. There always seems to be another Spyderco needed. The Spyderco Military fluted titanium & Native 5 fluted titanium are my current obsession. Talk about sexy! Maybe too sexy, at least according to Aussie Custom's importation rulings. Have a good one!

            Thanks Nikolai. The Salt is sweet, comes with me every time I go near the coast though it's good inland too where I do most of my fishing. I got my first look at a Spyderco Chinook today on eBay, that is one nice looking knife! Think I'll start putting some aside for one of your Military Fluted Titanium's they're goddam gorgeous :-) Customs took possession of a couple of mine too so I've stopped trying!
            Thanks for the warm welcome and have a great weekend when it gets here; cheers, Gary.

                Gday Gary welcome to the Abf, I've also recently been developing a love of spyderco's , so your not on your own there. They do become somewhat addictive though.
