I would definitely have to go with Civilian and then a Harpy.

I don't see anyone really mentioning any of the Salt lines, like the Pacific Salt, which is almost to be considered an "Endura Salt". Is this because the Salt line is too new, still, and, not really as an old "Standby" as the Police and others?

Easy. SE stainless police.

For me, I'd also add spyder-edge to that list. :)
Agreed: My checklist of the iconic Spydie goes:
Hole opener [x]
Mid backlock [x]
Pocket clip [x]
Full serrated edge [x]
Steel handles [x]
Warhammer 40000 is- basically- Lord Of The Rings on a cocktail of every drug known to man and genuine lunar dust, stuck in a blender with Alien, Mechwarrior, Dune, Starship Troopers, Fahrenheit 451 and Star Wars, bathed in blood, turned up to eleventy billion, set on fire, and catapulted off into space screaming "WAAAGH!" and waving a chainsaw sword- without the happy ending.

I bought one of the early SS SE Police with POLICE etched on the blade as a gift for my brother-in-law who was a patrolman and on the SWAT team at the time. He told me he used it once in a raid to cut open a gate that was tied shut. Later he discovered that what he thought was sash cord turned out to be electrical wire. He was impressed.

Recently, I bought an SE Police 3 G-10 for myself.
