I always carry a Strider GB Tanto in BG-42 along with my Dodo or Native. Often, I carry a Strider fixed blade, as well.

What NON Spyderco folders do I carry?

Al Mar SERE 2000.
SOG Deluxe Pocket PowerPlier.
SOG CrossCut.
...Along with my Native III, these 3 are my "EDC", (but sometimes I carry my customized Chinook in-place of the SERE 2000.).

Cold Steel Vaquero Grande.
Cold Steel X2 Voyager.

I also received a Benchmade 730 Elishewitz yesterday from a trade, and I have a strong feeling that this (excellent) folder is going to see some pocket-time, and might even replace my Native III as my "utility" EDC folder.

On rare occasions I will carry a Kershaw Talon, because it fits one particular shirt pocket uniquely well. It does not replace my EDC Gunting, but is a supplement. For certain occasions, when I need a large brute of a knife but cannot carry a fixed blade, I have a Strider AR.

I some times carry a SAK around the house but since I've become enamoured with Crickets,even that has become a rarity.tom.

Now and then a Kershaw Chive or a DeltaZ proto. They are fine knives but I don't want to damage them (especially the DeltaZ). It's the same case with most of my Spydies, I seldom carry them (except for the Delica, the poor one takes a lot of abuse).

Besides SAK's and multi's(I consider them tools),in my rotation I have a Gerber SL 3.25(CF),BM 812S,BM 814SBTRT,SOG Sculptura,SOG Mini X-ray,and I just picked up a Kershaw Random Leek(just like the regular Leek,only blacked out w/a reverse tanto blade of S30V instead of 440A). The SOG's are mostly carried cause I like the Arc lock,and the Leek's assist is fun to play w/. I'd like it better if it had the regular Leek's wharncliffe and a grippier handle,but the S30V is sweet.

My EDC folders (I also often carry fixed blades) except for Spydies the last two years was a Large Decorated Sebenza (BG-42), and a tiny Victorinox model on my keyring, which is usually used becuase of its built-in pen (GREAT). I also like to carry the Camillus CUDA/Raplh Mad Maxx Bowie (size DOES matter, but surprisingly easy to carry), and a handmade Kit Carson large Model 4 (in S90V), the only linerlock I really trust, and a beautiful knife.
But my beaters are nearly always Spydies, great price/performance ratio.

First, I'd like to say that the Spyderco knives I carry are the Native III (VG-10 FRN) and the Jess Horn FRN lightweight PE. The non-Spydercos I carry include, first and foremost, the Buck 112 Ranger w/o finger grips (great blade shape, lockup, and heft), a SAK camper, an A.G. Russell white bone lockback w/3-inch ATS-34 blade and 4-inch handle, and a Camillus gent's folder (with delrin scales and high-carbon blade).

* Victorinox, mid-size, with scissors


* William Henry 05 Cocobolo (the "cheap" series, now discontinued)
* BM 690

Once in a while:

* Buck 500
* Laguiole in black bone, nickel/brass bolsters/liners, corkscrew. Near custom-quality, bought in France for relatively reasonable money. Almost too nice to carry.

Spydies are a CF Delica and, within a week or so, my clear-out Peter Herbst should arrive.

A few fixed blades left; a CS CRK and a Helle Eggen, the latter bought in Norway. Sold the SOG Bowie - totally impractical. My BM 710 had to leave, too. Just can't pull it out in public here. Rotterdam is anti-knife-city nr. 1 in this country; any locking knife worn in public, however well concealed, can be considered illegal - new local legislation. Me not happy...

All my knives are plain edge BTW.
