For me it is unequivocally, the Sage 1.

It's not just in my head, it's in my heart.

That would be the Caly 3.5. Nothing else Spyderco makes can touch it for all around every day carry.

My Domino has replaced all others as my daily carry. I have tried to carry others and found that I was reaching for the flipper on them. The message is clear to me.

Here are is my favorite knife(s) :) I believe the Chaparral series is about a perfect EDC knife. For me anyway. I need to take better pictures of my Chaparral. This one is about the best I have and it doesn't bring out the beauty of this knife at all. OTOH, that may just be my lack of skill. :( The Manbugs are also a very sturdy small knife that will cover 90% of my cutting.

Caly 3 Damascus. I like this knife so much I've started to fear I'm going to lose it. It was a gift from my wife and I was blown away she would buy it for me. If I do decide to put it away my next favorite knife would probably be the Gayle Bradley.

I love all my Spydercos. It's a toss up. I like the size/weight and feel in hand of Chaparral just a little better than Caly but what I like better on Caly is the Carbon Fiber scales, the blade steel, and the amazing smoothness. I like my Southard best to play with, it's so much fun and carries well.


If I had to pick a personal favorite, hmm…. I think I would pick Delica. It personifies what a knife should be. Great steel that shapens up easily, great blade shape, lightweight, carries well in the pocket, FRN scales can take a beating, feels good in hand, and price point doesn't deter me from tackling any task I encounter.
Most Carried: Sebenza Insingo small, Chaparral, Modded Southard Flipper, Delica 4, Ritter Mini-Grip, Techno, Injection 3.0
Wishlist 2014: Sage 2, Mnandi, Krein Alpha,
Other's I own or have sold: Vallotton, Anso Zulu, Blur CF, Scallion, Leaf Storm, Sage 2, Caly 3 CF
Flashlight EDC: Preon 0, Peak Eiger AAA Oveready edition with QTC & momentary button Nichia 219 emitter, Beta-QR, Muyshondt Aeon

Another vote for the Southard. I find myself wanting a spare (and I don't usually want a spare of anything).

From a pure "fondness" perspective and it has nothing to do with pocket carry time or usefulness, I'd have to say the original, emerald green plain edge Bob Lum Chinese folder.

As for this week/month, my new Caly 3.5 laser.

Manix 2. Standard (not FFG) G-10 version.

Or maybe the FFG M4 version, but I tend to baby that one too much.

Or maybe the Southfork...except I can't really EDC that one.
