No it’s purely a matter of semantics.
It’s just semantics, I don’t tell people what I carry.VooDooChild wrote: ↑Tue Feb 11, 2020 4:01 pmIm so confused. So the military would be fine if it had a different name? Spyderco doesnt print the name on their g10 knives like the military. Are you going around telling people what its called and all of a sudden the name is the problem? If thats the case I would just lie about the name. Tell them its called a spyderco lovepuppy or a spyderco cuddlebug. I so rarely ever meet someone who actually knows specific models of knives.
I would just carry it anyway, but a pacific salt or police 4 lighyweight would probably be a nice transition from the military.
Indeed it is, I’m looking at stretch 2 models currently vs the upcoming sprint run and current Shamans.
I've never handled a yojimbo, so I can't relate. There are plenty here that have/had both that can probably answer that for you. I have 3 Shaman's...so there's my thoughts on the comfort of that knife haha!
My concern with the manix 2 is that switch in the handle.

There are other dressier knives (chaparral, native etc) also. Finally, the UKPK is a slip joint in a great size.
What is your actual environment (not political :mad:)? Arid or humid? Is there significant salt water in your life? Salt series might make sense for you.
Basically, you can’t swing a dead cat without hitting a fantastic Spyderco.
