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 )? 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.
