Once again, I find myself prostrate at the feet of the Spyderco experts begging for crumbs of information. Please help out a newbie..
How does the Ayoob compare in strength (blade and locking mechanism) to the Mannix or Chinook? If I were looking for a very strong daily carry knife that, in addition to being used for defensive purposes as a back-up to my duty weapon (I'm a LEO), was also good for utility purposes, would the Ayoob seem as good of a choice as the other two? Any input or opinions would be greatly appreciated.
