What's your favorite Non-Spydie to Carry?

Postby araneae » Sat Feb 02, 2008 11:04 pm

So, I am just wondering what everyone's favorite Non-Spyderco knife to carry/use.

I'll start by showing you mine. I when I got into knife collecting I started out collecting USA made Schrades. I picked up a Schrade Lake and Walker and fell in love with it. It is the first knife I decided I "needed" back-ups of. I currently have 3 in Combo edge and one in Plain (the plain ones are hard to find). There is also a holy grail version in BG-42. It was designed by Michael Walker & Ron Lake. Its got a nice full hollow grind, and takes a good edge. It has a frame lock and an early version of the LAWKS system currently in use by CRKT. The pocket clip carries real low. I just like this knife for some reason.

Sadly, USA Schrade closed in 2004 and the name was purchased by someone who chose to move production to China. The knives will never be the same in my opinion. I think if they made more knives like this they might not have closed. :(

So what about you??? Show your non :spyder: favorite.
So many knives, so few pockets... :)

Just got: Ikuchi

Only thing I carry when I'm not carrying my Spydies is the Sebenza. However, more often than not a Spydie accompanies it.

Victorinox Adventurer or Boy Scout

Postby foxquads » Sun Feb 03, 2008 7:31 am

I've been carrying a Victorinox Adventurer for over 20 years as I need the can opener, tweezers and screwdriver regularly...(I didn't know about Spydies until recently.. :( ) Recently I retired my old Adventurer and bought a Boy Scout...(Same knife only has a serrated blade (!) like a :spyder: !)...It was also almost $10.00 less...
Recently after being bit by a :spyder: , I have been carrying a D-2 Military too.. I fell like this covers it all...Then occasionally I carry the Harpy, and the D'Allara, and Delica, and the endura, and the ........Oh well ; You all know...(!)

Probably either this Kershaw Leek:


Or the Kershawk quince Splinter.


I really love the narrow slim blades. Something Spyderco doesn't do a lot of, I think due to the neccesity for the spyderhole. Also part of the reason I lust after the original Jess Horn so much.
