I have 20 different steels among my 31 unique Spyderco models. I've had around 60
total so far, and I've been trying to cut back recently.
Most are special to some extent, but these stand out:
- HAP40 Endura was gifted to me by my wife and the first with which I whittled a hair
- All of my Manixes because CBBL is the best
- Kapara was my calendar contest prize last year
- Cruwear Para 3 for some intangible reason
- The smooth green G10 of my Native 5 is just awesome
- Red M390 PM2 was one that I passed on during the first run only to kick myself every time I saw one.
- P.I.T.S. and I have a love-hate relationship. It was an impulse buy of a low wear resistance steel in a pricey package, and the titanium anodizing blemishes super easily, but I like everything else about it.
