Nice. Not too far from there now. I deal with kids and parent from all over the state! The winters here are brutal, but they take care of the roads here. Not just sand on ice like in Dallas that one week of the year of winter there lol.

Going to revive this thread. Does anyone have a lead on this knife? I missed out on one deal where I guy over on Glock Talk bought two of them (I didn't have the available money at the time plus the buyer was wanting to sell both of them togther). The guy who bought both of them hit me up a couple of weeks later and I offered to buy one of them but never heard from him. The pair of them were selling at a premium over what they were going for when Spyderco was selling them for when they got discontinued. I would be interested in any leads for one at a reasonable price.

That's not a bad deal nor a bad looking auto. Just wonder about the quality/durability of it.

I replaced my M&P and got a second for my wife. Great knives. One straight and one partial serrated.

So I've been looking around for a Spyderco Citadel Auto for a while now but didn't get serious until this past month now. So I finally came across one and it wasn't exactly cheap considering what they were going for when they got discountinued (around $130 I think) but I picked up one BNIB for $200.

I found some used in very good condition for a little cheaper but they kept getting sold before I could contact the buyer. Even found one in Texas for $170 but he didn't have the box and didn't want to go down on the price because of that.



That being said, the mods over on Blade Forums are pretty touchy about their rules and I had to pay for a membership just to be able to respond on their classifieds. And I wound up finding the knife on a different message board. Go figure. I'll probably stick around over there just to do some reading but will probably do my buying and selling elsewhere.

Sorry I missed this!
I had to fill out a form or two. Basically I had to tell them I was active army or at least in the reserves. I called up and they said that there is no way for them to check it, so I just filled out the paper work. It was when I was still in the IRR, which made me feel a little better about lying.

I also showed up at the post office with it already packaged.
Honestly an easy gig. The forms are located on their website.

Thanks for this . Just ordered one now after 30 minutes of looking for a citadel.

One day I'm getting a Benchmade infidel.

But for now I'm happy with my new Stryker II. *manual*
My little collection is slowly growing.

Agreed, this may be just a novelty item for me as I've never had one nor have a need to open a blade up one handed/assisted. Certainly looks tough whipping one out like that though but I would probably prefer a nice Emerson knife with a Wave function. Just never had an auto before and since they became legal, the Citadel was what I wanted but still couldn't have because fucking Spyderco discontinue them!

Spyderco Paramilitary 2 is next on my list.

Notice my post about the infidel above if you missed it.
I just dont want anyone getting their hopes up and then being dissappointed with a $400 letter opener. I get the cool factor though.
Check out the infidel mini. 3550

Here's my benchmade 5000.
I hated the feel of the factory finish so right before deployment i fogged it tan. It smoothed it out just like I wanted.
Fast forward a few years and we had a sandblaster at work and I was tired of the chipping paint. I took the skins off and blasted them. It literally took my 6 hours to get the knife back together all while fighting that fucking spring.

I think the bare aluminum looks bad ass.
