Need Advise

Postby dl1340 » Thu Aug 07, 2014 9:00 am

I got my first spyderco months ago, black / satin PM2. Love that knife. I want to add another knife, something a little smaller to my spyderco collection more for EDC. I do EDC the PM2 but sometimes when I pull it out some of my co workers eyes jump out. I have the domino as one on the list, can you guys give me some other suggestion. I know this has probably been asked or brought up before. Thanks

For smaller knives, I find the Dragonfly 2 to be my go to LBK. Many other great choices as well in the sub 2" blade category. Plenty useful and they won't scare the non knife people.

The Domino is no doubt nice.
I would suggest the Caly 3

I have to give a +1 on the Dragonfly, great knife.
Also, the Delica is a must have.
Fairly small knife, but great for it's size.

If you want other smaller knives that don't scare easily, go for the Tenacious, Persistance, Squeak, Meerkat, Cricket, etc.
If you want a knife with a bigger cutting edge, but that doens't look scary, I would say the Centofante 3 and Chaparral are great choices!
Hope this helps :D

Every Spyderco fan's list will grow :p
Once the bug bit you, you're doomed to collect till there's no space left for a knife (and then still keep on collecting :D ).

If you want to stick with the g 10 handles, I suggest the Caly 3.

Another knife to consider is the frn handled Delica 4 with the full flat grind, it is a heck of a good deal for the cash, and, it comes in an assortment of colors to help make it friendlier for non-knife-people.

Keep in mind that the Caly 3 in G-10 is discontinued, but they can be found on the secondary market if you have your heart set on one. It's a terrific 3" option in both PE and SE!

Great choices so far, I second (or more) votes for Native 5, Chapparal, Caly 3, Sage or the Dice (if you like the Domino). I've been especially enjoying the Dice the last month or so! Cheers, Radioactive :)

Yep. Innocuous, light, legal almost anywhere, avail in 4 steels and serrations. Hard to beat it for the money!
