Hi Travis, welcome to the forum! I carried an old first generation SS Endura for a long time, until it was sacrificed to the Lake Gods. Then when I went looking for a replacement, the great wide world of Spyderco was opened to me, and I haven't been the same since. I like my knives from several companies that I collect. But I'm ADDICTED to Spyderco!
Be very, very careful. Once you go Spydie, you don't go back.
EDC Everything! Our knives are TOOLS, not 'Objects d'art'. A 'Safe Queen' is an implied insult to the designer/manufacturer.
