$300 for a new EDC spydie or two

Postby knifenut1994 » Sun Nov 15, 2015 7:23 pm

I need some advice, looking to pick up a new spydie, or two maybe, and I need some advice on what's good, I'm open to almost anything, just has to peak my interest, discontinued or not, I need ideas, I got a new pm2 and feel like I need to buy something to carry alongside it. Any advice is appreciated :spyder:

I'd go with a watch pocket knife...Manbug ZDP-189 or VG-10...I got 'em both and it's a toss up each morning as to which one gets packed...but one of them ALWAYS gets packed!

Ladybug is great also if you prefer that blade shape...but I prefer the strategic jimping & larger Sypderhole of the Manbug...

Lot of knife in a package that is almost like carrying NOTHING...

An original Kiwi is a classy small knife unlike anything ever made by any cutler. Very ergonomic & unique if you desire a Wharncliffe blade with no belly. Of note also, the Kiwi has no pocket clip, if that option is important to you.

For $300, you could opt for a discontinued Kopa from a secondary mkt. in an exotic handle material to REALLY class it up. Plus it has a pocket clip & a more leaf shaped blade than the afore-mentioned Kiwi. I'm partial to the honey jigged bone, stacked wood, & Tiger Coral.

Happy Hunting & let us know what you settle on!

The Techno is a good suggestion but I much prefer his Slysz Bowie. Both are very well built knives.

Lance, my first thought was the Slysz Bowie too. ;) Seriously, they don't call this knife the "Sebenza killer" for nothing. It is very well worth the price, IMHO. You will likely have some cash left over, so I'd recommend getting a Sharpmaker too.

My first idea was Slysz Bowie but he mentioned he wants something to carry alongside his Para2.That's why I suggested Techno.

A Salt series in SE. A Lil Matriarch in SE or PE. A Dragonfly or Chappie for using around sheeple. Enough left over for a Sharpmaker.

Just looking to suggest something that wouldn't be redundant to the PM2.

In all honesty I would get a Sharpmaker, a SE knife, and a very high end multitool. Let us know what you get! :)

I no this might sound weird but if you can find a used hinderer xm 3inch in spanto I would try that .in one pocket you have a sweet slicer on the pm 2 .then the ultra tough spanto grind on the xm would make a definite all around tough two blade edc set up that can do all.if only spyderco get the full titanium native or a yojimbo 2 .

Manix 2, Military and Native 5. With your PM2, you would have a well-rounded assortment to select from.

I still say full titanium native thats a beast and small.and you were worried b4 you got youre pm2 about the size right?the military would be to big and its the same grind just a little bigger no need for that.the titanium native is just a awesome blade pluss if you want you can anodize it.the cf native 4 is also realy nice .you also have the yojimbo 2 the warncliff grind is very usefull.I also say if you can get a used spanto xm thats the best partner.you can pry and all other hard uses that the thin blade the pm2 cant.even a used xm looks new the stonewashing covers allot up and you can get different scales.alsp you can get it totally restonewashed.

Given that you want something to carry alongside a PM2, and given that a PM2 is a medium-large, plain edge with a traditional blade design, I would say that a very complementary knife would be a smallish, spyderedge hawkbill. So, my pick would be a Tasman Salt. It not only has a totally different set of cutting applications for which it is optimal, compared to the PM2, but it is 100% rust proof. Lastly, you will have lots of money left over.

I'm liking the idea of something serrated, does anything come in g10? I really like the g10 on my paramilitary 2.

My $300 Spydercos are some of my favorite knives. The one that stands out above the rest though is the Slysz Bowie. That is one fantastic knife in every way! I agree with those that suggested the Techno, as it too is a very nice knife for considerably less money, but the Slysz Bowie is my suggestion.

A harpy would be a good partner for a Para 2
