So, I'm thinking about getting a new spydie and I've narrowed it down to a few models:
- Lum Chinese g10 (large)
- Stretch (CF or FRN)
- Manix 2 blue translucent.
I'm a user not a collector, so I hate to buy a knife that will see more drawer time than pocket time.
I know The Deacon has sworn by the Stretch for years, and I've almost pulled the trigger on one several times before just because of his positive feedback on the model.
I like the construction and length of the Military, but I already have some larger "tank folders" and am afraid it will end up being put away.
I LOVE leaf shape blades and g10 scales, so why not the Lum Chinese? The lack of a choil kinda puts me off a bit, but the flowing deign really catches my eye.
I love the caged ball-lock of the Manix 2, but I fear this knife may be too similar in size and use to my Lil Temp and Paramilitary 1, both of which have been out of pocket for a while.
Which of these four would you choose, and why?
