Could you manage with 6?

Postby Eee » Sun Sep 10, 2017 11:33 am

Inspired by MissingMontana's thread (//forum.spyderco.com/viewto ... =2&t=75843), do you think you could manage with only 6 Spydercos? If so, which 6? (Pictures make everything better :cool: )

I think I could (just) manage and it would have to be these 6.

I could make due with just 3...a Military, a Dragonfly, and a Ladybug. The hard part is choosing which versions of each.

Yes, I could get by with only 6. But I'd have a really hard time picking which 6 would make the cut. Thankfully, I don't have to worry about it.

Sprig
Chaparral
Urban/Pingo/UKPK (I'd go with the Urban K390 of those three)
Dragonfly (I'd go with ZDP)
Manix 2 (I'd go with the Maxamet lightweight)
Southfork

Six models, easy. Although I can't imagine a scenario where I'd want or need to limit myself in that way.

One specimen each of the first two, no way!

Easily. I am pretty sure I could manage all my cutting needs in life with only 6 knives and I am pretty sure I could manage with only one Spyderco folder but what fun would that be? :) They would be mostly fixed blades as I love to cook and love the outdoors. I have tons of folders but I am fully aware that I could get by with only one.


1) Dexter Russell Chinese Cleaver (if I had a K08 Santoku it could go here as well)
2) Sprig (can be used as a paring knife and as a game processing knife)
3) Southfork ( I need a hunting knife and it can be used in the kitchen as a carving knife)
4) Rapala fillet knife (I hope Spyderco makes a fillet knife soon)
5) Bradley Bowie (a do everything hard use knife and a good knife for woods bumming)
6) Cruwear Military (It could easily be my only folder)

I would need my leatherman wave too. :)

Pretty sure I could get by with just a plain edge S30V Military if I had to. If I'm forcing myself to take six, I'd also pack a K2, likely a Chinook 4 and 3 spare Milie's.

ZDP Dfly
Cruwear Millie
XHP Manix LW and my GB could take care of anything that I need a folder for. I wouldn't pick a Spydie fixed blade. I have an old Ka Bar that looks like h#ll but that I would trust through anything.

Easily.

1. Delica 4 hap40
2. Dragonfly salt
3. Junction

Honestly, I could stop right there.

4. Stretch hap40
5. Mantra 2
6. Hap40 dragonfly

Para 3 cruwear might replace the mantra if it grows on me enough

That leaves just enough space for my favs both on a practicality side and usability side. But I obviously cannot limit myself to six, because I have a whole box full!

certainly. In today world even one is OK. One of my Native5 will do the job, but why?
Can somebody here limit your self with
1. six tops (total, not each of six of :shirts, t-shirts, tank-tops, sweaters)
2. six pants (total, not each of : pants, slacks, jeans, shorts, sport shorts ...........)
You got an idea.

I could yes, but then those 6 multiply into 12, and then 24, and so on and so on... :D
