I want to get myself for the 50th birthday a weird Spyderco. I am trying to chose between Chinook 4, Myrtle and Hanan. What would be the most extravagant of Spyderco on the market today?

Tropen has blade coming out of the handle when closed, and subvert is too large for my hand. I already looked for both...

Q ball
Hundred pacer
Lil matriarch
Rhino
Parata (not sure that's the right name)
Shemp Bowie
Amalgam
Any hawkbill salt
A Lum folder of any size

And yes, plenty of disco'd models that are harder to find.
How weird you want is dependent on how willing you are to work for it.
The easy ones to find are in the current catalogue. I'd recommend having a look

That depends largely on how you define extravagant.

Cool. That’s a great price for the myrtle. If I didn’t already have one I would have picked it up. It’s a nice piece too. Not perfect, but really nice. I like the blade shape. Sharpening is ok on the sharpmaker. Other sharpeners will likely be difficult. The marbled carbon is spectacular. My all time favorite carbon. My only nit pick is that the detent is pretty strong and the hole is close to the pivot, which makes deploying the blade a little harder than other designs.
