I like spyderco because they stick their neck out and try new things constantly. So many different steels, with good heat treats, exclusive and sprint runs, the ethnic series... There's something for everyone! My personal favorite is the Amalgam, which seems to be very niche. I figured more people would love a spydie flipper but seems some can't be bothered to just move their finger a little when the flipper passes through the lock cut out. It's very fidgetty, even more than a PM2! You can flip it, spydie flick, thumb flick, do a hard shake out, spydie drop... And the sounds it makes!
I love the thing. The manix 2 xl is close though, I'm really enjoying it as well!
Still wish we could get a "poor man's" drunken with G10 and S30v... Maybe one day I'll find a user for a good price!
