Not really sure specifically what I’d be using it for. Pretty much anything I guess. Not sure as to what size would be comfortable or practical without having different ones in my hand or pocket to try out first. There really aren’t any places where I can see one in person so I’m stuck with taking a chance buying online.
I'm with you I don't really have any duties that require me to cut stuff but since getting bitten by the Spyderco bug I find things just to use use the knife. There are many very helpful and intelligent folks here who can answer any question you may have. Good luck with your purchase!Bourget117 wrote: ↑Thu Nov 15, 2018 7:58 amNot really sure specifically what I’d be using it for. Pretty much anything I guess.

Ugh. That is what I was afraid of.TkoK83Spy wrote: ↑Thu Nov 15, 2018 1:01 pmI say just go straight to the PM2. As all of us here know, you'll get the Efficient and like it. You'll read more threads here on the forum, see more pics of various PM2 's you'd be interested in, and end up buying one. Inevitably kicking the Efficient out of your pocket for the superior model. It's a vicious cycle!! Welcome aboard!
This is what I was afraid of. Right now my “eye” likes them all.sal wrote: ↑Thu Nov 15, 2018 1:11 pmHi Bourget,
Welcome to our forum.
When one first becomes interested in Spyderco, the "eye" drives decisions. As one becomes more involved, the "eye" has less influence and "Function" (performance, ergos, safety) begins to carry more weight. I think the Tenacious or Delica are a good choice for a first Spyderco. It will give you a closer look at what we do. Then if you like what you see, time here on the forum and other models open the door to a larger room. The more you learn about design, steel, geometry, history, etc. the more the "brain" is used and the "eye" less.
I was thinking the same about the Tenacious. That it could look a little big and scary to some people. Maybe the Efficient would work better for EDC and certain places and the PM2 I could get later on for use in other places.araneae wrote: ↑Thu Nov 15, 2018 11:36 pmThe efficient is a good size for an all-around knife. I like mine and feel it might be a more people friendly design than the Tenacious. Both are great designs though. A delica is also a great first Spydie, there is a reason many of us that have "too many" knives still carry Delicas frequently.
