M4 (in GB1, Air, Manix2, PM2, Shaman)
K390 (in Police4, Urban)
S90V (in Manix2 XL, Native5, Shaman)
Each takes an aggressive edge with just a little effort on the brown stuff, and can cut without undue fracturing. Were I spending appreciable time in the woods or garden, I’d likely go for something tougher... indeed, my SE SpyderHawk Salt and I are soon to tear down the garden for Winter.
I reserve judgment on ZDP189, Cruwear, 52100, and Rex45 until I can try them in two different Spydie models. And I still have no 3V, 4V, Maxamet, HAP40, or V-Toku2 to try.
I hasten to add, if I could have only one Spydie in the relatively more balanced VG10 or S30V, or in semi-magical LC200N, or in the magical SE H1, you would not hear me complain.
EDIT: Added my reasons, other pertinent info, and refinements in my thinking.
