Does anyone happen to have a current list of left handed Spyderco models that are popular?
I'm left handed and have firm beliefs in what my knife needs to do, so maybe I can give you a couple things to consider. Foremost, my knife needs to be operated one handed. I'm often working on important things that require my attention, so looking at the knife and using two hands is out of the question. In this regard, the Manix 2 really shines. Also, it fits my hand very nicely. The next consideration once you've made that decision is the steel. I have one Manix 2 in S110V and one in Maxamet. I'm having a lot of fun with the Maxamet, but for ease of use, I'd recommend the S110V. There are a variety of other steel options, as well.
The Military is fine, but I'm not a fan of tip-up, and in this day and age, there are locks I prefer over the liner.
The Left-Handed Paramilitary 2 is also really nice. I'm fond of the lock, and it's really simple to operate if it's on the correct side. The S30V blade no longer excites me, but it might be a good choice because of the ease with which it takes an excellent edge.
Sadly, not all the compression lock knives (Sage 5) are offered in left hand versions, nor are there many options for exotic steel. Regardless, you might be very happy with one of the three models listed above.
