    Lately I have been carrying a DFLY 2 the most and I always have a ladybug on my key chain. Outside of work it depends on the tasks I expect but a millie/para and a stretch/delica

    I voted PM2.

    I'm surprised at the number of people that selected knives that aren't one-hand operation. I'm going to have to ask about that in a separate thread.

    Yeah, everything on the list can be opened and closed one handed.

    I'm not at all surprised about the Caly results. There was a time when the Caly 3 was the epitome of EDC perfection. If I weren't so biased towards compression locks, I would probably agree. I would have to say right now my favorite EDC is my Yojimbo 2, but that's constantly changing. As always with these kinds of questions, I'll just post the same pic I always post and say "one of these".

    D'fly for sure.
    The Sage 1 kicked my Stretch SE out of rotation (sort of, it also needs a new backspacer, I just have no incentive to replace it , but my Para 2 only barely failed to best the Sage. So I voted for them all!

    Lockbacks were never intended to be operated one-handed. Yes you can do it but it is very dangerous. The worst cut I've ever gotten with one of my knives was while trying to close a lockback with one hand.


    I'm surprised that more people didn't go for the Manix 2. It is probably overshadowed by the PM2 but the Manix 2 has its good points and it can be bought for less than the PM2. I have both and there are things I like better about the PM2 and other things that I like better about the Manix 2

    If you have a 50/50 choil, like a good amount of Spyderco's do, one handed closing of a lockback isn't that bad. It provides a safety guard of sorts to help prevent chopped fingers. That being said, accidents can definitely still happen.

    The finger choil of every one of my lockbacks enables you to flip the blade halfway closed (roughly 90 degrees rotation), and the choil stops it at your index finger (There's even enough unsharpened blade on my Ladybug and Jester to flip it closed into my index finger without hitting blade). The only exception is my Caly3.5...by the time the blade has rotated 90 degrees the sharpened bit will hit your hand. The 50/50 choil on the Caly 3.5 is a little "stretched" or "elongated"...if you pull your index finger to the back half of the choil, you can flip the blade into your index finger (Or let it drop if it's loose enough to drop with the lock engaged) and there's plenty of blade choil to interact with your finger so you don't cut yourself. It's all in the technique. Every Spyderco in my signature can be operated by myself easily with one hand.

    I voted Dragonfly. There are other more useful and enjoyable knives for me to carry but my favorite in the watch pocket is the Dragonfly 2; thin, light, usefull and any bigger I'm worried will show . I prefer they don't peak out the top for fear of losing them. I'm leaning towards non pocket clip carry, basically just self conscious.

    Lately my dialex junior is the one I keep in my backpack which makes it my most carried technically, it doesn't rotate at all but I supplement occasionally.
    Greath thread.

    Very often I minorly cut the joint on my right index finger closing lockbacks. It's a matter of being careful, even not being careful it's not too serious so I consider just about all of them one handed closers.
