For me, it'd have to be a simple Delica 4 Lightweight, in VG-10. It's just a really well-balanced knife.

Thin enough blade stock to slice food. Thick enough to be strong for other duties. Not so big that it scares the muggles, but big enough.

I'd miss my Spydiechef, Walker and Dragonfly 2. But hey, this is a doomsday scenario, eh?

If only one it would be a fixed blade. Something as tough and simple as possible. I only own one Spyderco fixed blade - LC200N Mule.

I think it'd have to be my Para3 or my Chaparral LW. Both are small light and super functional. I'd probably have to go with the Para3 just because it's a little bit heftier.

If you could only keep one Spyderco out of all the models you have, or maybe it’s a model you don’t have yet, only one knife to do everything you asked it to do!

Which model is it? And what steel is the blade in? And what knives are you leaving behind?

You must leave the rest, and only pick one!

Very hard decision. Smurf blue M390 PM2, with S110V Manix 2 Lightweight and FFG Delica nipping at its heels.

All of my Spydercos are great knives.

If I had to pick ONE MODEL out of all of the knives that I currently have, it would probably be the Yojimbo 2 in 20CV, OR the Sustain in 20CV.

The following are all of my current Spydercos (and I have at least 15 more that are on my want list):
Military S110V, Bob Lum Darn Dao, Yojimbo 2 (ONE) S30V & (TWO) CF 20CV, Sustain, Native 5 Maxamet, Jumpmaster 2.
Spyderco Collection: Military (S110V), Bob Lum Darn Dao(CPM-154), Yojimbo 2 (1 in S30V & 2 in 20CV), Sustain(20CV), Native 5(Maxamet), Jumpmaster 2(H1), Province(4V). SHORT LIST: CF Shaman(S90V), Native Chief, Street Bowie(4V at 60+ HRC), Nightstick, Yojumbo.

PM2 in M390 but must have Aramis' contoured CF scales, other than that the GB Advocate has really grown on me.

I’d keep the Techno. It’s my “fun” blade to carry. I have to say, I’ve never had a knife grow on me like it has.

Military G10 stainless blade. Para military 2 and para 3 well respected. I could never count all that well :)

Do all CQI Military models have those options? Besides the scale material, and blade steel?

Of what I have? Cruwear pm2 with regular g10 scales swapped in. I like the blade of the military much more, and carry my millie 10x more than the pm2, but the compression lock is just so good.
