I just ordered a Sage1 (through Amazon).
I narrowed it down to the Native, Cary3, and the Sage1. I may end up with all 3 eventually, in one form or another, but the price on the Sage, with S30V steel and carbon fiber handles, was too good to pass up.
The knives I just mentioned all seem to be in the 3-inch blade category. I'll also look at other sizes in the near future: Para-Military2, Military, and maybe something smaller too - sub-3-inch... the Chaparral maybe?
I've lived in Alaska for the last 20 years. To me, a folding clip knife won't replace a fixed blade or big folding sheath knife. If I don't get side-tracked, I guess I'm looking for one or more knives in the city/office/civilian EDC category, suitable for in-pocket carry without using the clip.
I'm a new Spyderco fan. How'd I end up here? The Sharpmaker.
