Never really see much posted on here about Spyderco knives. In my opinion they are the best production made folders. A company not afraid to use steels that are hard to grind. Though they are thicker then I like! But nothing a regrind can't fix. So let's see your Spydie's!

I always thought they were ugly, until I actually bought and used one. I started with a Delica. I currently have the Delica, Edura, Sage, Gayle Bradley, Military, PM2, Salt serated, and recently, a Native FRN. I always have one in my pocket along with a victorinox Cadet alox.

My fav spydercos are the Moran drop points. Have several. IMO the perfect factory hunting knife.


Years ago i wish I’d bought a couple of the wegner folders. I like that blade style. They bring a premium on eBay now.

Spyderco definitely makes some weird styles that aren't attractive to me. However, they also have some super ergonomic knives that just flat out work. My two favorites right now are the Para 2 and the Ikuchi. Wish I would have bought a Slysz Bowie when they were available.

I have many. Delica or the Native 5 might be the best EDC folders ever

I have a Delica and a Native. I don't think they can be touched for the money

Currently I own two PM2's--no pics at the moment. The most recent of the two is a brown S35VN sprint run model that I felt I just had to have. I don't think I have even opened that package currently.

The first was a blurple S110V model that I hoped to use as an EDC knife as well as on the boat. Love this knife but I found out it is a bit large to deal with in my pocket while sitting at the desk (rubs just right against the chair's arm to bug the crap out of me) and after my last trip offshore, I have started to notice some staining on the blade.

I am currently contemplating a PM3 as another EDC knife but will probably get one of their salt series first.

Looking hard at the Native 5 in LC200N steel. Really like that this is made in the USA but have really come to love the compression lock. Which has me eyeing the Caribbean....just a little torn about the Taiwan manufacture (hell of a lot better than China) as well as the fact that it is larger than a PM2 which is already a bit on the large size for my needs. Realistically though...I know I will probably end up with both of them anyway so I may just buy both to begin with and avoid the inner turmoil. laugh

If they offered a PM2 or PM3 in LC200N, I doubt I would look any further or be hung up on the decision. I keep meaning to email them about a sprint run in this configuration.

Tiachun produces the best of Spyderco's high end knives.

im not good with the picture thing so you wont see my beat up delica combo edge i've been carrying for 20 years or more.


I have a metal military combo edge, paramilitary, provenator, and new delica serrated in the box for delica back up.

I really like the thin plastic delica weight over the metal ones and rarely carry the metal ones.

When you find a favorite you stay with it and the spyderco hole is appreciated more now that arthritis is creeping into my thumb.


Other than that, How was the show Mrs. Lincoln?

I owned a serrated Endura when they first came out in the early 90’s. Great knife but the serrated edge was hard to sharpen and too specialized. Mine has the clip molded as part of the handle. It broke and Spyderco screwed a metal clip on the knife. I ground the serrations off and ultimately made the blade too thick to be useful. I just ordered a flat ground Endura in orange. I’m excited to get it, but I can tell you Buck customer service is quite a bit better than Spyderco. Hopefully I won’t need any ‘customer service’ with the new one.

I have become a fan of the Spyderco hole as well. While not arthritic yet, my big hands don't do well with small studs. I know some people don't like the aesthetics of most Spyderco's, but the large hole works well for me. Definitely a "form follows function" design.
