You have to get out fast. What one Spyderco knife?

Postby phaust » Fri Dec 08, 2017 3:30 pm

Never really thought about it, but we got a mandatory evacuation message at about 10:30 last night and had to decide what to take quickly.

Long story short, grabbed a multitool and a trustworthy Spydie:

(Dog had to choose her carry quickly too and went with a well chewed favorite.)

What Spyderco would you take out the door in a rush?

Probably the Spyderpac that contains all of my favs :)

But at the current moment if I had to run out the door with just one the Police 4 would get dropped in the pocket. Awesome steel, easy to carry, and one heck of a backlock. It's basically the backlock Military I've always wanted.

Aqua Salt for sure. There was another thread about an apocalypse single knife scenario.

In all honesty, if I had to go with a single knife in a life or death situation, I'd go with an Esee. I haven't destroyed one yet, and I've tried.

But I love my Aqua Salt!
The first time I saw a Spyderco was the early 90s at a knife shop in a mall. I can still see the SpydieHoles through that glass display cabinet. My parents wouldn't buy any of them for me... so now I buy them all. :spyder:

Are you in SoCal? We just went through the fires in NorCal too, with mandatory and advisory evacuations. I used to have multiple answers to this question, and would still find time to take more than one Spyderco, but in the spirit of the question, if it was absolutely one and only one, the Jumpmaster 2.

Probably one of the Militaries that are usually laying on my desk, but I'd also grab my EDC bag that has a D'Allara and a SAK in it.

Yep SoCal

...to be honest I took all my knives, but they're packed away in the car somewhere.

If I grab them both, I will have about 95% of my Spydies.

For me it’s the Shaman. Do it all knife. Love it. Hoping for more runs with different steels and scales.

If I'm being evacuated to a detention center: Yojimbo 2 (it's basically the ultimate prison shank).
Anything else: Starmate CPM440 (the original not the later cheap knockoff). The most complete folder Spyderco ever made.
