Re: Most Apocalypse Spyderco?

I would probably grab my GB1, but a close second would be my BG-42 Military.

Re: Combo Edges: Like or Hate?

I believe that CE blades have their place. If you have ever had to cut vines or roots, you will appreciate the serrated part and if you have ever had to do a bit of 'woodcraft' such as carving a spoon, you will appreciate the PE part.

Thanks for the review, Spydie, it was great! And, my thanks to all who answered. I just pulled the trigger on the Stretch Super Blue. I think that it will bump my ZDP Endura. :)

Stretch Super Blue

I have my finger on the trigger for a Stretch Super Blue, but I am looking for input as to the practicality of the knife for edc. I generally maintain an edge with a strop. Any input?

I've been using Endura's for 16 years....Military, regular forces, Army, Afghanistan, Air Force. Used well, used hard sometimes.

I would definitely be interested in an ATR if it was kept as original as possible. I was standing behind the door when the DLC version was available. :(

That said, my Military gets far more pocket time, as it is as home around the camp as it is in the kitchen. It carries like a small knife and the more you use it, the more it seems to 'shr...
