Toss up for me between the Native Chief and Manix XL. Both have only had one special variant made, I believe (Manix XL M4, Native Chief Rex 45), and the Chief's variant isn't out yet.

For me it was a close thing between the Native family and the Manix family. I voted Native 5, FWIW.
Used to be JR in CT with a much earlier join date. :rolleyes: :spyder: Native in 440v was my gateway Spyderco! :spyder: Wharnie for the whin! Friends call me Jim. As do my foes.

I’ll vote Manix XL because the other models all come in steels/variations that I already want.
The big Manix’s deserve more love.

I voted for the N5. It's the smallest spydie of the available selection. Would probably result in the lowest price. Plus the N5 is a masterpiece (all except the LW). :)

It would be a true gem.

I actually think the fact that the Native is lightweight (linerless FRN) is one of its biggest selling points, behind ergonomics. But I love the Native, so any special versions are good with me.

I just have to say that I think that it's a testament to this forum's curmudgeon-ness that we're 15 votes in and the two most popular models on the list (Para 3 and Manix 2) have not got even one vote :D

My only thing with the Military is that it’s already clear we’d need full metal liners in the knife. Just something to consider because that’s a significant change to the model. Much more so than the newly announced Paramilitary 2.

I know it’s going to be made in Seki, but that larger Straight Spine Stretch is already meant to be made with Cruwear I think, so what’s a little Micarta on top of that? ;)

My vote, realistically, is for either size of the Manix or that 4 inch Stretch.

Been a long time since the Millie had a sprint.

Wouldn't say no to a Manix XL though....micarta really elevates this model to the next level IMO.

I voted Military of course. Second place would be the Police 4. Then, the Delica. SS Stretch and Manix XL get honorable mentions. Native Chief of course, but I've not handled one yet to see if it fits my hand.

I'm guessing Para3 will be, but voted Military.

If the full liners are a requirement, I'd be shocked to see the Military or Chief, even though those are the two I would be most interested in.

Definitely the Millie. I really hope they can figure out a way to make this happen.
