Love my K2, but people around me always look at me funny when I pull it out. I also really want a Tatanka and Szabo.

Military all the way. Although I'd like to have a k2 one day.

I love my Police4 and my K2, the ManixXL is great but it is a pocket hog( not that the K2 isn’t), the Endura never clicked for me and the Military is my favorite Spyderco model. The hundred pacer is still sitting on my wish list but looks like it has a lot of potential.

Military is the king of all Spydies!

As long as Mili is an option, this is an easy one. I want a hundred pacer, and if the tatanka was made in a better edge-holding steel than vg10 I'd want that too. I like the endura and have several. But the Mili is the king of 4 in or longer folders!

Good to see some love for the Manix XL. It feels like it was made for my hand and the F&F on mine is just phenomenal. At the time it was right around $100 retail and I remember being baffled at how they could put out something American made and so high quality for so little.

Was a tough choice between the Endura and the Military for me. Just recently, I carried the Military for a week to see if I could come around to liking it. Ended up liking it so much, that it has become one of my main work knives. (Shaman, D'Allara 3, and Military)

I've also been carrying the Endura and really liking it. The size had always deterred me from carrying it, but after carrying the Military I feel "converted" to larger blades!

With that said, I voted Military. :D

I voted Police 4 because it is everything I want in a pocket knife, just at a ridiculously large size
I own an assisted knife and am embarrassed to admit I enjoy it.

I voted Military because it's the only large Spyderco I currently own. It's a terrific knife though!

I really like the endura, but the absence of an index finger choil definitely sets it apart from others like the military for me.

Endura is my daily carry and has been since 92. I don't consider it large though I had to choose it. My current large favorite is the K390 Police 4. That is one amazing knife. K2 next and ditto on the amazingness.

I picked Manix 2 XL but I also have a couple of versions of the Military. I like the Manix 2 XL better but it does take up a lot of room in my pocket. The Military handle seems a bit thin to me, even though the Manx 2 XL borders on being too big, but I don't like the thin point on the Military.

204P Mili. But I am reserving my final judgement after my Police 4 gets here (this week). :)

Seriously considering making a long winded thread about how the Police 4 is superior to the Military in 9/10 ways.
