Okay, I admit, I'm way too fickle to really pick one
(um, I mean, it depends on the task/environment/scenario
That said, what I do know is I'm perfectly happy with pretty much any of my Spyderco's.
In fact, today I dug out my ATS34 Vesuvius. That knife can still hold it's own against anything else I own.
Yesterday was my new Native 5 and as Roman said, this thing rocks!
And much like Blake, 99.9% of what I do (outside of the kitchen) my Balance handles just fine.....
Kind of a different spin but the one I miss most, if it's not on me is the Balance. So I guess it's that....
