    Most carried: Caly jr. or Caly 3/3.5 in FRN/CF/G-10 depending on my mood of the day.
    Celebrating special occasions the Calypso jr. in micarta and AUS-8.

    The poll needs alot more input to give an accurate graphic picture. 163 votes so far, and some people voted more than once!

    What would be interesting is for anyone who cares to write down every day what they carry. Most people who read this forum have more than one knife so the choices they make on a daily basis might be interesting. Example: MONDAY; Manbug, Chaparral, GB. TUESDAY; Chaparral. Etc. If a few people (the more the metter) would do this then post the choiced after 30 days that might be interesting to someone who is considering buying ONE NICE KNIFE and only one for a pocket knife. Of course the ONE NICE KNIFE may turn into several. Then when someone reads this forum looking for information to buy one nice knife that they will use every day the choices of EDC from people who have multiple options would be invaluable. My problem is I have traded or sold knives I didn't EDC much leaving me with a small "set" that get carried a lot. The set is this:
    Manbug
    Dragonfly2
    Sage4
    Chaparral
    Bradley Folder (GB)

    I have a few other knives but these are the only constant EDC knives I own. But my "set" is so small no one could benifit from me writing down anything. But people with 10, 15 or more options in a drawer and only pick an EDC numbering at 5 or so specific knives would be helpful to someone else, maybe.

    Just for grins if I chose only one from the above set it would be the Sage4. Legal in most places in the US. More than strong or big enough for any task I routinely come across for a pocket knife. My choice would be the GB except it is illegal (technically) in the state of FL I think. Where I live no one cares what pocket knife anyone carries if they use it properly. The reasons I wouldn't choose the others for "only one" is the Manbug and D'fly are too small for some tasks I have. So is the Chaparral. But the "most used" knife is the Chaparral. The perfect "set" to carry is the Manbug, Chaparral and GB.

    PS
    I still have a wish list of knives I'd like to get allthough I have no immediate plans to get one. Gotta get through Christmas and property taxes. But, thanks to this thread the Caly3 has just been added and very possibly added at the top of the list. If so many people with several choices pick the Caly(s) for EDC there must be something to the knife that isn't seen in a catalog.

    My EDC for a while. Stretch with carbon fiber handle, Chaparral 2, Dragonfly 2 with kirinite MOP handle, Manbug with bolster/red bone handle. Super blue/420J1 blades on all three (except Chaparral).

    I love the Endura. By leaps and bounds my favorite and most often carried pocket knife design.

    If I wasn't a student who works at a grocery store and has ammo to buy, I'd probably own a Caly 3.5 and a Manix 2 as well.

    Difficult to call one favorite over another. Almost every one I have is a favorite. Lately, the Wayne Goddard Lightweight and Stretch ZDP 189 have been seeing the most pocket time (with a bit of the Cruwear Military thrown in). I'm liking thin, slicey, and lightweight lately. Mike

    Great thread. We already have 200+ votes and I think that it will be pretty fair statement that tier 1 for afi is Caly family, Para and Endura/Delica family.
    I am pleased to see that my favorite Natives hold as good as entire Sage family or Military or Stretch. I thought that these knives would go higher. Probably Forum Native helped.

    Sal, Eric,
    thank you again. This was the perfect choice of materials and model for the Forum knife.

    Any knife without Spyderhole is defective.
    My top choices Native5, G10/VG10 Caly 3.5/3 & C83 Persian Black micarta/bolsters

    So, does anyone carry a Dodo besides me? Long live the Dodo!
    When you've got a Delica and a Dodo, everything else is just eye-candy!

    i had a CF dodo for a while, ended up selling it. got weird looks whenever i would use it in public and im not a big fan of recurves. i have to say though, it has the most comfortable handle out of any spyderco ive ever had. even better than the caly's imo
