Choil-less Spyderco Knives

Postby Spydergirl88 » Thu Jul 04, 2019 9:49 pm

Suggest a finger choil-less spydie that isn't a Delica, Endura, or in the value line (tenacious, etc). Preferably not a frame lock or liner lock either.

Haven't you already had every Spyderco? :) How about an Endela? Centofante 3? Sliverax?

Endela...
But if you're proposing more choilless Spydies or choilless versions of existing models (Native... Manix 2...(though the latter HAS to have some choil technically due to the CBBL)) I am with you!
Something like a higher end Tenacious, (better steel) preferrably featuring a backlock, would be great either
Top three going by pocket-time: Endura 4 in VG 10/Micarta-scales; Stretch 1 in VG 10; Endura 4 in HAP 40

Why that?? The Native would be a hole lot more versatile with a longer edge and more usable area on the actual handle, the Manix has great ergos in an regular grip, but has just a really short usable edge for its bulky size. So getting rid of the choil would improve it for me personally.
And I am talking about VERSIONS of choil-models, not of replacing those...

I’m a hard sell for a choil delete mate, my hand searches for a choil when I pick up a fork.

All good, we like what we like.

I like the design of the Kapara, where the choil isn't a part of the blade.

Functionally, I regard the notch on the Endura (Pacific Salt)/Delica (Salt)/Endela as a choil. Does no one else?

After all, this notch provides a reliable purchase for greater blade control plus an index for knowing the apex isn’t far away...

I’m definitely not on board with deleting a choil from Manix or Native! The Native is way too small to lose the choil, also the 3 finger grip behind the choil is very uncomfortable and the grip feels very unsecured. For my hands anyway. The Manix has enough handle to lose the choil but it wouldn’t be a Manix. It would lose a lot of versatility. For my needs it has enough edge.
Now an updated higher end Tenacious is something I would look at...
