So far, I haven't really looked at the $200 and up Spydercos.
That's probably because I still don't see a lot of asthetic beauty in any of them. I did see a Delica yesterday with custom wood handles that was a real beaut.
But the six Spydies I have now are beautiful things to hold and use. The way they look just isn't that important to me. All the threads I read tell me the more expensive models look better, but cut pretty much the same. So I'm happy with my Delicas, Enduras, and military.
In fact, if I had bought the FFG Delica and Endura first, I'd only have one each now. I would not have bought the Sabre Grinds (partially serrated) if I already had the FFGs. If I find I don't use them, I'll probably sell them. The one in my pocket or toolbox is worth much more than the ones in a drawer.
I guess what I'm saying is Spyderco has a very good lineup under $150 for those that can't afford the more expensive models. We can't all afford a Ferrari, but that doesn't mean Ferrari doesn't care about their customers.
