    For me it has to be the Endura, large blade, thick spine, slim profile, light weight, strong lockback, easy to open one handed, good ergos, pocket clip.

    Welcome to the forum. Wow, that is a difficult question to answer. Do you mean Spyderco knives only, or any brand and type?

    Honestly, and this may shock some people, but if I could have only ONE SINGLE KNIFE from the SPYDERCO would be the Spyderco Caspian Salt with pointed tip.
    I mean, I like all kinds, Hawkbills, Enduras, Puma folders, fixed blade diving knives, etc, but I would have to say the design that leaps out at me the most, is the Caspian Salt.
    Here is an image of it:

    Unfortunately, it is currently discontinued.

    The Karambit, of course. But a good, solid, straight spear point blade floats my boat pretty well too.

    Locking folders in the 2.5" to 4" blade range are generally my favorites.

    Specifically the Para 2 is my favorite knife I've ever owned so far.

    I have interest in several different types of knives:

    For EDC I like good quality folders in the 3.5-4" range, G10 or Micarta scales, good steel, keen point, plain edge, tip-down pocket clip, thumb studs or thumb hole. Lock type should be liner lock, frame lock, axis lock, BBL or compression lock. Some of my favorites are Paramilitary 2, Manix 2, Manix 2 XL, Military.

    I collected custom hunting knives for a long time and I still find a lot of them interesting.

    I've gotten interested in looking at handmade bowies although I don't think I'll every be buying many of them.

    I have some interest in looking at "tactical" knives although I don't know that I need one or really know how to evaluate them.

    short answer...the one that I will use

    a "user" for me must be:

    a. relatively thin behind the edge and pointy.
    b. light enough to carry that I hardly realize it's there, with a small footprint.
    c. reliable lock (midlock or liner is best IMHO)
    d. easily serviceable stainless steel (I'm a low-maintenance type guy)

    that's why I carry: for small folder = Manbug, med. duty = Caly Jr. & Chapparal, large carry = Caly 3.5, or Millie
    Have Kiwi, will travel...wire Paladin...Hotel Carlton, San Francisco

    My favourite knife is the the chaparral series. Extremely high f&f with a thin blade and small compact package. pack a lot of cutting power for a relatively small knife
