Not sure yet. I gave my bro-in-law a Delica last year not sure what to expect, and he has carried it everyday so I may have to upgrade him this year. Not many people in my life really appreciate (let alone take care of) a knife well enough to bother.
SHARPEN IT LIKE YOU LOVE IT, USE IT LIKE YOU HATE IT
Sending a DFly Salt and a Delica to a buddy deployed to Afghanistan. The package is enroute now. He's not really a knife guy, but actually emailed me asking for a suggestion of a knife. He said he wanted a 3" ish blade. I thought about something nicer, but also wanted him to abuse it, if necessary, without remorse.
My daughter and her husband are getting a Sharpmaker. A Pacific Salt to my son (Early Christmas present). A K05 to my sister-in-law, she loved mine at first use. All my kids (now adults) love their Spydies. If any new releases that I'm interested in drop before Christmas, may ask my wife gift me one.
I usually gift a bunch for Xmas, so many that its almost expected. I've got a bunch of HAPfly's I'll be setting free this year also ordered 2 Sharpmakers today too for my boys, about time they start sharpening their own 's

"We may look curious, homely, whatever, but we'll never be called unusable or undependable."
I'm giving my girlfriend a few Spyderco kitchen knives. Knife Center had 2 for 1 on the K04 serrated and I ordered her a K05 plain edge too. I'm also thinking about gifting my daughters a Cat or a Dragonfly but I'm not sure if they'll use them. I'm pretty sure my oldest will love one but I'm not sure about my other daughter. Still thinking about this one.
Of all the things I've lost I miss my mind the most!
Girlfriend has been bugging me for a pink spyderco for some time. Almost got her the pink lum but feel it's a little too big for her right now. Went ahead and got her the pink ladybug. We shall see how she handles it. If all is good then I see a native or even that new pink pm2 in her future.
