I have been debating which of these 3 to get (first), and since I have NO EXPERIENCE with the Salt series, hawkbills, reverse-s, stainless handles, or the Spyderedge, I thought I'd ask you guys. Planned use is as a companion blade to a normal, most likely PE Spyder like an Endura or Native. Frequent, if not constant carry is the goal. Sometimes pocket carry, but IWB when out and about in public. I know the Tasman is the lightest, but its also thicker than the SS Harpy, which, in combination with the drying vent and smooth handle contours make me think its the way to go. I'm also really looking at the Lil Mat as a standalone EDC or companion. Do any of you have some advice for me? I'd love to hear everyone's picks for my described needs, along with your reasoning behind it, since I can handle none of the three. Plus a good discussion is always nice, thats what we're here for, right?
