I think you are asking a bit much.
Never handled one, so I did not list it... but going by the specs: Could be very much to my likings: Basically an Endura (which I love), but featuring a choil that does NOT take away too much of the actual edge-length (which is my No 1 critics on choils)

People in the US have much more opportunity to see more knives than we do here in Aus and I’d say the same would apply elsewhere.
I can often tell I would like a knife by looking at it, then I look up what others say about it, WHO actually said it and how similar it is to other knives I like.
Might also be good if a complete list of sals designs were listed as most wpuldnt have a clue.
I’d definitely say the Endura
Good question... I did always know the Stretch 1 and 2 were designed by Sal for himself, since that gets mentioned a lot; The Shaman also was often announced as Sals design; Concerning the Endura at first I just assumed it had to be designed by Sal since it is a very early design; googled the Endura and the Chaparral then.
Sals moniker on the blade would be a good starting point, I guess.
Right, but it isn´t always there... Sometimes generally not (Endura, Delica)), sometimes not always (Stretch 1)ChrisinHove wrote: ↑Wed Jan 09, 2019 7:25 amSals moniker on the blade would be a good starting point, I guess.
I really couldn’t say which are my top 5. The Military, Caly & Kiwi 4 would have to be in there, but so would the Dragonfly, Chaparral and Stretch. I also couldn’t possibly leave out the Delica, Endura or any of their derivatives. Did Sal have a hand in the Sage line? - there’s another five there.... etc etc!
Thanks, that clarifies a lot.
So: A majority of Spyderco knifes are designed by either Eric or yourself? To be honest, I really never did care too much who the designer is or what logo is on the blade when looking at all the knifes,so I do not know (ok, when I lost my stretch 1, which HAD Sals makersmark and bought a replacement which had NOT I DID notice it.. )
Thanks for sharing! So ranks 4 and 5 are exactly the same as mine. Calypso will almost certain make my top three as soon as I get to handle one I assume. Police (just handled it) and Military (own one in Custom Zirikote wood scales) are great, but just a tad too long for me.
If you're talking about the big C-54 Calypso then you've got a big "HIGH FIVE" on that one Other than the C-60 Ayoob it's the one folder I want the very most in one of the new Supersteel blades.
