    Your top 3 Spyderco folders :spyder:

    What is your ultimate top 3 folding knives from Spyderco, wich you actually all own?

    Mine:
    #1 = Spyderco Endura 4 by Santa Fe Stoneworks
    #2 = Spyderco Para-Military 2
    #3 = Spyderco Centofante 3 (Pimped)

    Your turn!

    This is really impossible to answer, but... today I'd say, as far as what I EDC:

    Para 2 (S90V)
    Native 5 (fluted ti)
    Caly 3.5 (ZDP-189)

    Those 3 could cover just about anything I could ask.

    Did you see KnifeWorks post on Facebook the other day that they expect to get 10 of these fluted Ti Natives in (if you don't already have one)? It looks like they haven't sold all of them yet... I already have 3 so I need to NOT buy another .

    My problem with a top-10 or top-3 list, is that it changes from day to day depending on my mood or what catches my fancy that I may not have carried for awhile . Lots of them that I really-really like, not enough pockets to carry them all.
    Which Knife, A or B? get Both! (and C, D and E)

    Bolstered cocobolo Stretch, a magnificent gift from Sal:



    Bolstered Kiwi, started out life with jigged bone scales, had those replaced with Sambar Stag that I selected myself at a knife show and had installed by Santa Fe Stoneworks. A few years later I had the bolsters engraved by David Clevinger:



    Chaparral CF, superb slicer and my go-to knife on those days I head into Greenville, where there's a 3" blade limit:

    Hard to choose only 3. In no particular order because they are all great:

    1. CF Caly 3.5
    2. Domino
    3. Para 1 or 2

    When originally posting this I said no particular order however in fact this probably would be the order though it's tough. The Sage 1 could be thrown in there just as well, and the CF ZDP Stretch too. Whew it's rough to say only 3

    It's so hard to pigeon hole only 3 During my latest cull among midsized folders I retained:
    PPT
    Breeden Rescue
    Cento3

    Can't really decide among the smaller ones as most of them have really become part of everyday life. Plus there are a couple of newcomers

    As long as you can enjoy, use, sharpen, and appreciate
