All my Spydercos are users. I don't have anything too rare, but I do regularly use my tip up BG42 Military, tip up S30V Para, Blue Yojimbo, Pikal, ZDP189 Caly Jr etc. Not the most valuable or hard to find Spydercos, but they're my "grails" since they work the best for my needs.

The only spydie I couldn't get myself to EDC was a C44 dyad, it was marvelous in every respect, but it was just too beautiful to use often. I eventually sold it off so I could get a true user.

The rarest ones I have rotating in my lineup now are:
Black SE Dodo
"Experiemental" micarta caly JR SE that was NIB
Blue PE salsa (They are getting harder to find :D )
SS Kiwi (In my pocket right now)
and a PE Micarta SPOT that I reprofiled for boxcutter duty.

I also used to have a SE copilot in GIN-1, but it didn't fit my hand quite right, so I sold it off, and I really want to get a kris :D

I carry my UKPK. I've wanted this knife for years,k and finally bought it last
week. It's my favorite knife, and I've found that I use it more than I would usually use my EDC knife.

I second that with a four way clip, in VG-10, with foliage green g-10.

The only change I would love to see is addition of liners. Different color of micarta or polished G10 can be acceptable as well. As much as I love Calypso I would pass on FG :(

I'm all for a sprint run. Not too picky about scale material or blade steel, I just want a reversible, tip-up clip. Without adding liners (it would change the character of this knife too much), that probably means a wire clip.

I'm an admirer of Spyderco's designs. Using them is like immersing yourself in music or studying a painting in a museum. I buy some "fine" art but my preference is for usable art.

I EDC a blue G-10 BladeForums Native PE.

I don't know if it's a "Holy Grail" but I like the model enough to have one for EDC and one NIB with the River City Sheaths CF pattern Kydex neck sheath that came with it as a package deal.
