Spyderco porn!

Something about the scarcity and "forbidden fruit" about autos. I couldn't decide which Spyderco auto to get, so I got ALL of them. Photos taken with Canon Rebel XSI, 60-mm Macro lens, and a macro-ring flash. No digital enlargement or enhancements.

Here are some close-ups:

This is my EDC - Caly 3 Carbon Fiber. I really like this knife and the feel of the CF handles:

Nice collection!

I have no experience with the autos but I own several Spyderco knives.

What sort of camera are you using? Mine must suck or I just can't take pictures. Mine never look that good.

I'm using a Canon Rebel XSi with a 60-mm Macro lens and a macro (ring) flash. It's set up for "macro" or very close up work. The flash is mounted on the end of the lens, so lighting is even and without shadows (unless I shut one half of the ring flash down).

Looks similar to this:

I like that Citadel... It's very Benchmade-esque

I just picked up an Endura 4 with a black handle for EDC. I don't know why I didn't get one years ago. Nice knives, good price.

More Ka-bar. I honestly have no idea what I'll ever use it for. But, it seemed that I should have one. A real "man's knife." Relatively inexpensive, anyway.

You REALLY need to get a Sage 1. By far my favorite knife EVER. I thought no knife would ever take place of my Delica; I was wrong. The Sage is the perfect EDC for me.

Crap. I think I have a serious addiction. I've ordered two limited run Manix 2s.
