Same list as you except I change the stretch 2 to the pacific salt/endura. I do like the stretch 2 ergos better but I grab my pacific salt and endura 4 way more. So that makes them better for me.Enactive wrote: I am going to shamelessly bump this thread. I never responded to it earlier and it only lived for a couple days before. Curious if we will get any other interesting additions?
My list goes like this:
SpydieChef: This was my gateway drug to Spyderco folders. The uniqueness and kitchen utility of the knife really sold me. The F&F, ergos, looks, feel, action, performance are all top notch! Framelocks are not a favorite, but in this application it really excels.
Shaman: This was the knife that got me really paying attention to Spyderco folders again after not really paying them much attention. The Cruwear Micarta variant is really outstanding, although my "base model" Shaman has a stronger detent, which i prefer. Currently these are my only comp lock knives.
Stretch 2: This knife has exceptional ergos for me. The V-Toku 2 is a very fun steel, with its amazing sharpening response and fine edge capabilities.
Native 5: I couldn't pick between the Native Salt and the KC Cruwear exclusive, so i included both. They are both outstanding.
Native Chief: This bad boy is my pointiest knife and is an amazing slicer. While I want a Cruwear and LC200n Chief, I couldn't wait for a sprint and bought this guy as soon as it was available!
What y'all got?
Edited to add: It's been a big year for my Spyder fever! So many cool knives.
You reminded me, how could I not include the Mantra 1 which reminds me of the Sage 2. Don't think there's a way to pick the 5 "best" Spydies.
Both questions achieve the same goal. If criteria is not specified, at least on this forum, it's safe to assume personal preferences are expected.
