Love all five of these but, if push came to shove, my favorite among them is still the second from the right because it's the most compact of the lot.

The R, all day, every day. THE most underrated Spyderco that unfortunately only ever came out in limited runs. 25% of the time people ask for a design to be different, they don't know it, but they're asking for the R.

Santoku

Then Native Chief and Stretch 2

The SpydieChef is rad and a favorite to be sure, but it could stand a regrind.

Re: What are your favorite ~3.5 inch/ ~3 inch edge 50/50 choil Spydercos and why?

I've pretty much moved away from choils where I can, but I really do love the Shaman, it's the best new knife design in a long time (excluding my beloved Caribbean). Ergonomically it's about as good as a 50/50 choil gets for me. I love the lack of thumb ramp too and the thick rounded scales seal th...

What are your favorite ~3.5 inch blade / ~3 inch edge 50/50 choil Spydercos and why?

What are folks favorite 3.5 inch 50/50 choil Spyderco? I am really not good at favorites and i like a diversity of things and styles. I do tend to like 50/50 choil knives with a mid lock back in the size mentioned. Some of this has to do with hand size and wanting a hand-filling knife. My favorite ~...

Re: SRS-15 / SRS-13 ?

I would be most interested in a Stretch 2 and maybe an Endela. Brown FRN sounds good. I like cladded blades.

Re: TeroTuf!

Yesterday I received a set for one of my Native 5s. I haven't had time to install them yet but I did hit them with a little mineral oil to darken them a bit. The oil had just been applied to the scale on the right. The color will end up being somewhere in between the the two in the pic. [url=https:...

Re: assembly of the autonomy 2

It snapped somewhere in the coils. But I did open and close it a lot just for fun. It's also been in Salt water but I didn't see corrosion or anything. I'll have to look at it more closely when I get home. I've broken a protech spring before too. Of course I had over tightened the pivot and also op...

Re: Which Spyderco stainless is least prone to accidental edge damage?

Thought it'd be helpful to actually see Larrin's data here: [img]https://i.imgur.com/mg6iREM.jpg Resistance to all types of edge damage would presumably be best in steels that are tougher at higher hardnesses/strength, right? Based on that, AEB-L, Niomax, and Nitro-V would stand out. Of the more re...

Re: Which Spyderco stainless is least prone to accidental edge damage?

LC200N is quite tough (according to test charts and use), but not that strong. It tends to roll/ plasctically deform, but I have chipped it. It's not as damage nor wear resistant as CPM Cruwear, but quite good. Sharpening response on both is excellent, an important part of 'the best steel for you' e...

Re: assembly of the autonomy 2

I broke my spring yesterday and it took maybe 5 minutes to change out. When you put the spring in it is not tensioned. Then you use that little key to torque it back and put the screw in. Of course if you don't have that special key I could see this being difficult. The instructions are pretty clea...
