I started working on this post and Holland beat me to it by minutes. I'll attempt to freeze mine and we should stick with Holland's


I began my 2018 list without reference to my previous lists. Then I saw I left out the PITS, and had to keep it in there, so I had to drop the Des Horn, which made me cringe. :mad:

Looks like I still like small blades. I still prefer wire clips.

No big moves and no new-to-Spyderco knives made the list this year.

Hope all had a great 2018 !
&
Wishing everyone a Fantastic 2019!

Well, 2017 is the first year I actually have 10 Spyderco models to choose from. Here it is, largest to smallest,

Police 4            K390
Military              ‪206P‬
Paramilitary 2    M390
Manix 2            XHP
Para 3              CRUWEAR
Caly 3              HAP 40
Mantra              M4
Delica 4            VG-10
Native 5            S90V
UKPK                S110V

It would be more difficult to pick top five from the list...

Based on pocket time
1. PITS
2. Sage 2
3. Chaparral stealth
4. Caly 3 ZDP
5. UKPK S110V
6. Military G10/Ti M4
7. Military CF 52100
8. Shaman
9. PM2 Cruwear

Seems like I’m gravitating more towards 3 inchers, ti handles, and steel doesn’t matter as much as before... Still perfer the in-house designs over the collabs, with the PITS being the dark horse the list.

Favourites at the moment: Military 204P, Spydiechef, Sage 2, Pits, Heinnie UKPK, Native Cruwear, Chaparral Ti

Glad you put this one up "Holland" because I haven't done a JD's Top 10 in some time now. I'll go ahead and put up my personal, primary top 10 favorite Spyders.
(1) The C-60 Ayoob
(2) M390 Military
(3) Spyderhawk
(4) Dodo
(5) TEMPERANCE 1 ( fixed blade) ( SE & PE)
(6) AUS-8, Full Spyderedged Catcherman
(7) G-10 Harpy
(8)JD Smith
(9) The Stainless handled, ATS-55 RESCUE
(10) C-46 Lum Tanto folder

That's just off the top of my head. I'm going to have to modify that list in the next month but at least that will give some of you an idea of what I use the most anyway.

I only own 3, but I’ll put them in order:

1. Hap40 Wharncliffe Delica.

2. 52100 Para 3.

3. Cruwear Para 3. (This is actually my favorite blade steel but I have zero confidence in the slick smooth g-10 scales and don’t carry it. When I swap in some micarta or grippy g-10 scales it’ll probably become my favorite knife).
Team Wharncliffe
