Since the Harpy and Merlin are on the "small" size, I would go with the larger Endura rather than the smaller Delica. Also, I would suggest a serrated Harpy be paired with a plain-edged Endura. A stainless steel handled serrated Police would make an even better partner.

I've carried a SS serrated Police for over 7 years and even sleep with it (don't tell my other knives. It might cause problems.) I would vote for the Police. It's a nice sized knive and easy to carry.

kraziekurtis, oh man, sounds like you got bitten by the bug (Spyder) real bad. Kiss your money goodbye! <img src="wink.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle>

Personally, I like the stainless steel handled Police since the blade seems to be strudier than that on the G-10 handled Police. The serrated blade on the ss Police is awesome (get this one first). I still want to get a plain-edged ss Police someday. A serrated ss Police carried on the strong side would make a good partner with a plain-edged Harpy (new model) or plain-edged FRN Merlin carried on the weakside. Just be aware that there are more wonderful Sypderco knife combinations than we have money in our pockets.

I am sad, sadder than sad. I was expecting to gracefully walk in and pick up a Harpy and something else, but now I give them a call and either they sold the Harpy or the bimbo on the phone didn't know what he was talking about <img src="sad.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle>

Out of the last ones you listed I would go with the Starmate.
Cpm-440v steel and G-10 handle, you can't go wrong.

Ok If they for sure don't have the Harpy I will get the Starmate, and if they have the Harpy which they priced at 70 and they are selling the Starmte for 110 or less I can get both....
