File:Spike's duster.png
It's my second skin. It's who I am. It's just one more thing he's taken away that I'll never get back.

The duster that Spike owned originally belonged to his second Slayer kill, Nikki Wood.[1] In 1977 he first battled Nikki and after the fight, he complimented that he loved her coat. In July of that year they would meet again in New York on a subway and had a ferocious battle. After getting the upper hand over Nikki, he snapped her neck and stripped her off the duster and wore it as a trophy.


It was part of his trademark look for over two decades before it was destroyed by a bomb in 2004. After Spike complained that the duster was irreplaceable, the CEO of the Rome branch of Wolfram & Hart gave him an identical coat along with 10 others that were sent to the Los Angeles branch along with some new shoes, allowing him to quickly get over it.[2]
