Hiya everyone, sorry to leave all the replies unreplied as I've been away for a while and just recheck this post while again on the look for largest Spydie out there
Firstly, kindly thank you for every and each reply guys. It's a warm welcome and I've read every and each replies to be very informative
Now that I'm back and in condition to fuel my hunger for more sharpies, I decided to go for BOTH the Military and Police 4 Spydie has to offer
Plan to purchase from Knifeworks or a reputable eBay seller named Belote *(based on some research regarding the seller and previously had experience of earning two legit blades from other brands from him)
Next a bit of my "first love story" towards Spyderco as I've never owned or handled one before. I'll just write it out here as it is one experience for me in finding a quality blade that I fell in love for lol.
At first I had hard time choosing between the two for sometime, and next is like ah heck it I'll try both after reading and trying to get deeper insight of Spydie products. Which tbh, at first, the moment I saw some Spyderco products with the signature "leaf shaped" blade and Spydie hole was like kinda turned off as I have those days of "Tanto point, all black TACTICOOL, with a good steel" is the only aspect to make a purchase *(No offense dear Spydie owners, as turned out I was very wrong explained by the next pharagraph)
Then I encountered a friend who had both Police 4 and Military in satin finish with black G10 handle. He lend me the blade, tried it...that very moment, that day, marks my love towards Spyderco.
Seriously...the Spydie hole which at first was kind of "weird" to me makes for smooth and quick open flick with various opening style, the leaf shaped blade as it cuts through paper and paracords...beautiful..beautiful delicate satin right sized piece to me, not to mention the handle quality and smooth yet strong mechanism...one fine piece (two piece) it was. At instant I want it both, too bad guy said it's not for sale lol, looked up for the Manix 2 XL and Para in Maxamet but guess I'll stick with the Police 4 and Millie for now *(that, I for sure, feel wont be my end in exploring the instruments Spyderco has to offer)
As for the Tatanka, I've noticed that it is one of the larger (if not largest) option Spydie ever produce however discontinued...then, before I wrote this reply, I saw a seller from my local forum puts one for sale in good condition overall. Well, guess I might have 3 blades in total for my first ever Spydies lol
*I'll get to the replies one by one. Once again, kindly thank you for all of your insights and time to this topic gents. Can't wait to have some genuine Spydie piece, cheers~
