Which of Your Spydercos are you Most Proud of?

Postby dreadpirate » Sat Sep 09, 2017 7:20 am

Maybe it's because you customized it. Maybe it's because it's been a dependable EDC for many years. Maybe it's because it's a scarce collector's item. Maybe it's because you had to scrimp and save to buy it. Which of your Sprydercos are you most proud of?

For me; it's this Manix 2 in Cru-wear with these Putnam [Putman - sorry] scales. Love the steel, but I do not like the scales it came with so I had to change them out. I am very pleased (and surprised) how it turned out.

For me that is easy. My Police4 because it was a gift from the man himself.

I am also quite proud of my CF Balance because it is a super cool knife and somewhat rare.

^^ I think I could have answered that one for you Darby. ;). That is super cool.

I don't really feel more proud of one over another. But the Delica Wharnie does hold a little edge in this respect, just because it's the best story ever...as to how it came to be. Makes me proud to be a customer in a sense.

I am most proud of my Manix 2 back lock and my Urban LW K390. I have other knives, but these two are my current favorites.

My Shabaria. The story behind it is both tragic and encouraging. The knife represents common heritage. To me it is a special knife.

Definitely my custom Manix 2. I've put so many hours of work into this knife there isn't another one like it anywhere else.

Well, much as I love this Kiwi that I had customized by SFSW with stag I selected myself, then engraved by David Clevinger...

D, the handle contours on that Manix look wonderful.

Paul, simply amazing! I would be proud of that Stretch too. I am still hoping a Deacon tribute Stretch comes to fruition.

For me it's my Blue Stepped Titanium Chaparral. I love all of my Titanium Chaps, but this version especially.

That Stretch is just as beautiful as it gets! Would love to see that side by side with a Sage 4.

Thanks guys. The contour is only part of the work, it's the liners that sucked out more of my life than anything. It's not easy skeletonizing your own liners. Makes me really appreciate it when Spyderco do it.

Here is one from SFSW when you could order just one :-) Not sure if there are any other Kopas of this design.
