If you could keep only one Spyderco, which one would it be?

Postby illacky » Mon Jul 24, 2017 6:07 pm

Forgive me if this has been discussed before, but I'm curious to see what everyone's July 2017 answer would be. Also I apologize in advance if this question frightens some of you, as it kinda frightens me thinking about it :D

For me currently it would be the S110v Manix 2. I have put this knife through more than it probably deserves and it continues to not skip a beat. Very ergonomic and a joy to use.

If you had to give up all but one, what would be your choice?

^ LW version, or G10? Common, you can't leave us hanging like that!

Complicated ;) It was once a G10 version, but now resides in a Maxamet LW chassis... so my choice would be the LW rendition, only because of how much lighter it is, and I've got a thing for that wire clip.

After giving this some serious thought I had to change my selection.
My Mules are the knives I edc over all others and include the best combination of features for me personally. So it would have to be one of my Mules. But which one is the hard part. It might have to be my Maxamet Mule, as the "last Mule standing".

Spyderco Paramilitary 2 folding knife. If you are going to make me keep only one, you may as well choose the steel for me :mad:

At the moment, I am completely and utterly smitten with my Manix 2 LW, which just so happens to be the S110V version. Even with the HAP40 Endura and Pakkawood Delica, it is my most capable and delightful knife. It is therefore my choice for owning just one Spyderco of my currrent selection forever.

This may change once I get the CPM Cruwear Para 3, Rhino, Caly 3, etc., but for now, the Manix is my choice. I have even carried it every day since getting it in April.

However:
If the question were: "which of the selection would I sell now?," assuming we could purchase future models, I'd keep the HAP40 Endura due to the exclusivity of it being a difficult-to-attain-at-a-good-price sprint run.
Own: Delica, yOld S30V Native, pointy Breeden Rescue, Delica, HAP40 Endura, ZDP DF2, S110V Manix LW,Pakkawood Delica, Cru-wear Para 3, SE H1 DF2, M4 Manix 2, HAP40 Caly 3, S90V Native 5, K390 Urban, Pakkawood DF2, Cruwear PM2, SE Pac Salt, HAP40 Jazzlica, S110V Native, P.I.T.S., DLC Manix 2, REX 45 PM2, Para 3, XHP Manix LW, SB Caly 3, 20CV PM2, Rhino, SB Calypso Jr., B70P, PMA11, K03, ZDP Stretch 2, Kapara, REX 45 Military, 154CM Manix LW, 204p PM2, Swick, SG Delica, BL Lil'Native, AEB-L Urban, HAP40 Stretch, KC Cruwear Manix 2, Cruwear Military, M390 PM2, Cruwear Delica, 4V Lil'Native, Mantra 2, CruCarta Shaman, M390 Para 3 LW, M390 Manix 2, K390 Police 4, RexWood Shaman, DLC Cruwear Shaman, Rex 45 Manix 2, Native 5, Native LW, 204p Para 3, S45VN PM2, S90V Manix LW, 20CV Manix 2, Rex 45 Lil’Native, Shaman, C208GP.

Waiting for: SPY27, K490, Swick 5, and something purple

I'd find it very hard to part with any of my Spyders but I doubt I could part with my Sprig. :eek:

I too love my Sprig but if it was only one Spydie, the M390, S110v, or 204P Millie would be the one. The OP can pick it for me. :spyder:

I think it fair to say Sprig for fixed blade and Millie for folder! ;)

Manix 2 Back Lock. This is a superior knife.
