Military. It's soooo slim, and lightweight that I don't even know its there. That sexy, long ffg blade is razor sharp. That needle tip will puncture anything. That huge Spyder hole sucks your thumb in for positive opening. It's like having a straight razor in your pocket. Made in the U.S.A.
Chicks dig it. Badass.
Don't get bit by your Spyderco........

A military M4 at a good price is on my short list.

Up until recently I think it was truly a toss-up between my ZDP-189 Burgundy Caly Jr. and my original C-44 Dyad as far as being the EDC I've carried and used the most over the years. But now I think I can say with 100% honesty that my M390 Military has now become my most used Spyderco EDC ever.

Even though I like the overall design of the C-60 Ayoob from an ergonomic design aspect>> I've still used my M390 Military far more than I ever used all my C-60 Ayoobs put together.

Now as far as my Spyderedged companion blades goes that's going to be a tough one. But probably the vote would fairly go to my G-10 Harpy which got stolen from me :mad: Because I carried it almost a full 8 years before it got lifted from me :mad: And I so much want to see a new G-10 Harpy Sprint Run at some point. But next to that one I would say it is my old Spyderedged ATS-55 stainless handled RESCUE because I have sure had it in my pocket a lot too.

Was my Manix in S110V. Liked the lock, but didn't like the blade shape. Since I got a PM2 in S110V, replaced the scales with heavier copper ones, and added a deep clip, it has been my EDC when not traveling.
Traveling I alternate between a various slip joint knifes: PITS, UKPK, a Terzuola Clip, a SOG Sliptron, or one of several SAK's. Unfortunately, have not seen a slip joint in H1. The PITS and Terzuola are probably my favorites on the road, but a cheaper slip joint variant in H1 would give me fewer worries

Hello, everyone. Longtime reader, first-time poster.

Lately I've been enjoying my franken-PM2. I'm really loving the FFG spyderedge blade.

Military is frequently a favorite of mine, especially after camping, road trips, or few days of use.

Most used is the PM2, and favorite by default. Cruwear would now be considered my most used, as my oldest PM2 is no more :mad: .

I like my Native 5 Lightweight in S110v.
I really wish they would make a native 5 lightweight with a G10 handle and an m390 blade. Ideally they would make one with a textured G10 handle and another one with a smooth or brushed G10 handle so it doesn't tear your pocket up.

Can anybody else way in on the mantra? It has really peaked my interest.
Imo both the Mantra and Sage 2 could be considerd classic Spydies. Beautiful knives. Fantastic in the hand, and easy on the pocket. The Ti scales and open pillar construction make for ease of cleaning. Imo, the Mantra is one of the most comfortable "in the hand" Spydies. Great design. I like the M4 but, wish this came with M390 or S110V, or other stainless.

Most used is easy, it's this K04 Utiilty that Araneae modified into a mini-santoku for me. Hardly a meal goes by where it doesn't get to "cut stuff".
Image Favorite is a lot harder, as I love both the Stretch and the Kiwi.

Office carry is usually a CF C22 Michael Walker or a Techno. Out and about (and at home) I carry a Military

My most used is either my Delica or my blue nishijin Spin. That little knife has taken everything I can throw at it and then some! It's a perfect coin pocket knife, super easy to clean and maintain!

My new favorite is the Superblue Caly Jr.
Stay Golden :spyder:

I'm with Peacent: My Spyderco Pacific Salt, and I will add, my Spyderco Byrd Cara Cara.

I like all my Spyderco knives, but these are my most used when undergoing actual cutting chores.

Both of them cut like pocket chainsaws and are like something out of science fiction, something Captain Kirk and Science Officer Spock would have carried onboard the USS Enterprise.

My fav so far is the para3 but I haven't carried it as much as I'd like because it's so costly. Maybe once I get a spare I'll be more comfy beating hell out of it.
Image
The two that get the most use are the Delica and Ambitious, the Delica because it is light and easy to carry, the ambitious because, well, it's cheap, so I use it a lot at work if I feel like sparing the delica.
That said just got an endura and that thing is wicked. Bigger than I'm used to but not too big. It may be the next big thing lol.
