Just voted for Manix 2 lightweight.
Love the lock and have been wanting this knife for some time.
That said, I want a Stretch really, really bad too.
You can't go wrong with any of the ones you have listed, just make sure you let us know which you choose and why!

Well, I voted Native since you are going to use it as a tough EDC. I have to say my Native FRN is the best knife I have for carving wood, making feather sticks, or whatever you are looking to do with cutting wood. It is the knife I always turn to if I am going to do heavy duty cutting. That said, it...

Please forgive my ignorance here as I have never used H1 steel and am not that familiar with it.
What I would like to know is why people here recommend VG-10 for PE, but H1 for SE? Why is H1 preferred for SE?

Wash it out like Paul said lube it lightly. Look for mineral oil at a pharmacy and use it sparingly. Huh, mineral oil. Never would have thought of that. Will have to see if I can come up with some. Thanks for the tip! This is why I love this forum: I have the wisdom of literally thousands at my fin...

That's the main reason I wish more folks would take the time to at least add a location to their profile here. Even just the country. Agree that tightness isn't a common problem for the Native. In fact, most complaints I've seen about the C41 have been the opposite - that the backspring tends to be...

I am not the most experienced compared to a lot of others, but yes, my pinned spydies are much tighter than the screw construction. My Native FRN is a very nice knife, but a little too tight for my taste. I have to really think about it when I want to open it. Other than the tightness of the blade, ...

Well, now that I have had the Native FRN for a while now and have EDC'd it regularly, I still say it is the stiffest knife I have ever owned. I love the design and it fits my hand like a glove, but I have to think about it or my thumb almost slips out of the spydie hole when opening. I am living ove...

Just had to comment now that I have my Centofante 3 how much I like it! It has a longer blade than a Delica, but it actually feels like it takes up less space in pocket! As most know it isn't a heavy use knife and don't plan to baton with it, but for anything I use a knife for, it is more than adequ...

Good to hear it isn't taking too much flack! I have been looking at the Manix lightweight, but have held off. One of the reasons being not knowing much about BD1.
May have to take another look at the Manix lightweight thanks to you all!

Both knives are very good knives, and like has been previously stated a number of times, you really can't go wrong with either. For myself it depends on what you are doing. If you are going do do more slicing than say carving then I would chose the FFG Delica. (also the Centofante 3 is also an amazi...

Well, I finally got my Cent 3 in the mail yesterday and boy am I stoked! this thing is a mean little slicer!

I know this is an older thread, but man, this knife still rocks! I am waiting for mine to be delivered, and this thread is not making the waiting very easy! I completely agree that if people are looking at the Delica (which is a great knife in itself), they really need to take a hard, long look at t...

Wow! I would absolutely love to see Spyderco go to BD1 in their Chinese knives! Wow, talk about more incentive to buy from Spyderco! This would be great to see other companies follow suit if this does actually happen. Any idea how this would effect the prices? I'm sure there would be some increases,...

There is a thread up on the front page of the Spyderco General Discussion page right now trying to rally support for an FRN Caly 3. I posted in it indicating my support, but it also gave me the thought to come over here. What about a byrd that fills the niche of being a "FRN Caly 3." Now, I'm not t...

Good to hear you like your Centofantes!
I really wish I could actually handle a Dragonfly to see how it fit in hand. I don't mind having a small knife, but I a little worried it might be a little too small.
