I recently bought a Spyderco Manix 80mm PE. It is in new condition with box. I really like it. Solid. It makes the loudest sound when the blade locks open.
Anyway. Should I use it in my edc rotation or should I save it and keep it in new condition? This dilema is tearing me apart.
What say you?

An possible solution is to try and obtain another one. The legendary "Powernoodle" from Bladeforums is a proponent of this strategy. Buy one to use, and one to keep pristine for fondling and drooling over. This is often easier said than done on a discontinued model. I did this recently with the original Manix: I have one for tearing up stuff and one for ogling and stroking.
