Not sure if this has been done before or, if not, this thread will become a mainstay, but I thought it would be cool to read about some short stories regarding all things Spyderco. Not novels, but short, funny, interesting stuff that hopefully many will come to enjoy in time. I'll start with mine. So, for Christmas, I was looking to get my GF a knife as the Swiss Army knife her father had given her was snagged by TSA when she forgot to take it out of her pocket before going out of town. She is only 5'2" and did not want something large. She is not a "knife person" and was not sure she needed to replace it, but I have personally seen a knife literally save a life on more than one occasion so I think it is important to have one on your person at all times. I was not sure what to get her. I looked at an auto or two (she thinks they are cool), another Swiss Army knife, and a few different brands of pocket folders and slipjoints. Ultimately, I settled on a Dragonfly with a serrated H1 blade. I knew she did not care for the yellow, so I RIT dyed the FRN scales black. It seemed to check all of the boxes for me: excellent quality, fairly inexpensive, easy to care for, and a GREAT cutter. (Plus, she loves dragonflies!) The other day, she told me that she accidentally ran her jeans through the washer with the knife still in the front pocket. Then she told me that was the second time she had done that. I asked her via text if the "H1" symbol was still on the side of the blade (LOL). She sent me a photo of it, still looking like new of course. Then I broke the news to her, that she could wash that knife every day for the rest of her life and it still would not rust or hurt the knife. She carries the Dragonfly all the time, except of course when she is doing laundry, LOL. Ha ha ha, you gotta love Spyderco!!!
