Survey Says This is What You Carry Most...

Postby Joyce Laituri » Mon Aug 06, 2001 12:00 am

Survey Says!



In the recent "Win Fame, Fortune and Valuable Prizes" thread we asked all of you- "What one Spyderco model do you carry daily or what one model is a strong part of your everyday rotation?"



Thought you might be interested in what your top 10 replies were, once tallied.

Joyce, does the survey positing on the Military PE and Calypso FRN models information jibe with sales, or does it just mean that forumites prefer flat ground blades for everyday use?

Have you noticed we're sort of like lab rats? They test out new ideas and such with the dedicated ELUs. We make most of the purchases, and convert new collecters to our side...

We all start with 10 fingers. Those with Spydies have 9 to spare, Still need a thumb. Good thing I still have 8 to spare...

Looks like plain edge is the most popular carry.

Hi Guys!

We were surprised by the preference of plainedges most of you had! The one conclusion we did arrive at as a result of the survey is that all of you are not average knife buyers. This has to be due to experience, education, the fact that most of you are knife savvy to start with.

I think once Sal gets out of meetings he will probably have comments to post as well.

Ciao

I seem to be an oddity even for here.

I prefer SE blades and aside from the SE Military, none of those are my EDC. I do have some in my collection but not for real use.

Does this mean I have to get more <img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>s to conform better? (Darn <img src="wink.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> )

"Ne vyklykaj vowka z leesoo, ..... bo tsej vowk maje <img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> ." Don't call the wolf out of the forest, because this one carries a <img src="spyder.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0> .

Huh? I know there are more dedicated Endura fans out there than that! Strange that a model that is near #1 in sales isn't among the top 10 in forum usage.

Keepin' it real...real sharp, that is.

The survey should be done again, and since it's been a year since the last one, I'd bet that some of the results would be different.

I'll be lookin to glasshart for an Endura soon. I love the Native, and have been useing it every day since I got it, but, I have two Endura's that have broken FRN clips to send to the Spydie factory. I will look forward to a new Endura with the steel clip. SE even. Might replace my Native, or get carried -with- the Native. Oh, the two broken Spydies are in Red and OD, and will become part of the seldom to never carried collection (unless they come back with re-spydied-edged's).
Just gonna keep the bug goin!

Joyce,

A lot of us here are users of knives that are kept unusually sharp, as that is our habit. I believe that this situation lends far more usefulness and versatility to the ole' plain edge design than it would perhaps demonstrate otherwise.

I usually check the Forum at least once a day, but I don't remember a "Win Fame, Fortune and Valuable Prizes" thread.
It also seems quite odd to me the position of the Delica (not to mention the Endura - THIS really is strange). Maybe you should post that thread again.

Dialex,
The original post is a year old, so you might have missed it then.

Thanks, Ted, I'm only a couple of month here. I only checked the topics from the last 100 days when I signed in, so that's the explanation. Well, I'll dig further and add my opinion to that thread <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>
