Hmmm...dpends on what size.

Small: Stainless Steel dragonfly
Medium: Calypso Jr. or Delica
Large: Tough choice...either the SS police, Civilian, or Military <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle>

An honest man's pillow is his peace of mind

This week the most bang for your buck is the C39 DYAD JR.Lightweight with FRN handle in color choices for 49.95. See Spyderco Products Online Catalog: Discontinued.
Also would make nice Gifts for Christmas at this price.

I agree with Paul. The Calypso Jr will do everything that most people need a knife for and is a very sophisticated design as well.

Don't worry that the world might end tomorrow, in Australia it's tomorrow already.

I would like to say the SS Delica, still my faverite, but in truth I think the Calypso Jnr just nudges it out on price.

As always, such things are dependent upon one's use and expectations for a knife. While I am very pleased with the Calypso Jr Ltwt I bought, and even more the Native, I can't see that one can get any more knife for the money than the Endura for $45. I'm not sure one has to stay in the Spyderco fold to say that.

When the VG-10 is used for the Endura/Delica, and the price changes made, I can't help but hope that it will be even more true then than now.

The Calypso JR lightweight was a favorite on an EDC thread. I also think it's the definite "most bang for the buck". I've been trying to dull mine (within reason)but it's still scary sharp, and I like the way it looks and handles.

I guess you are right. I think in my terms of what I use the knife for daily, which is light office/home stuff. To someone who needs a knife for heavier, maybe outdoor chores the Endura might seem a better deal.
I'm going to the Lake of the Ozarks this weekend and I will certainly be busting out my Endura. (and some other toys)

The FRN Native...the best in the line, so far.
