When someone says ''Spyderco'' which of there knives comes to mind first?

For me, it's The Pm2 and the Manix.
The pen may be mightier than the sword, but the knife is cooler than the pen.

Easy. Delica/Endura FFG in pastel colors. I remember seeing them for the first time around 2011-2012. They were so different and oddly attractive than what I was accustomed to, they left a real first impression of Spyderco in my mind.

The Delica, because it perfectly embodies the spirit of Spyderco: simple, versatile, efficient yet very distinctive.

And the Dodo... because who else could have designed that knife? :)

I don’t necessarily picture a certain model as much as I do the Spydie hole. Even when I see any sort of cutout on any other knife. No matter the shape, I still think Spyderco.

Delica. It wasn't the first spydie I owned, but it was the first I ever saw, and became one of my favorites.

First generation, fully serrated Delica - my first Spyderco and all the things that made Spyderco an innovative player in the cutlery game - pocket clip, spyderhole / one hand opening, “interesting” design and teeth.

I think the Delica/Endura line is what really popularized Spyderco’s name. Since that introduction, the PM2 has become iconic and served to shine light on all else before and after. So, in answer to the question, take your pick.

Things like the Dodo, Poliwog or even the new Pochi.

Knives no other company would ever take past the "back of a napkin" phase, but end up being great users.

Definitely the Endura & Delica, because that's what we sold the most of at the knife shop I worked in during college.

No knife in particular comes to mind when I hear "Spyderco". I think of the Spyderco brand as a whole.

There are a number of models that could be considered iconic today, the Paramilitary 2 and Native are a couple that come to mind, but personally there is no Spyderco more iconic than the Delica.

For me it’s either the Delica or the Native, that’s just the mental picture I have.
