Spyderco knife rotation? How many?

Postby tps3443 » Thu Oct 11, 2018 9:10 am

Just curious how man knives you guys rotate with and what do you rotate?

I’m thinking I need a few more Spydies!

(200)-(600)-(800)-(1000) Diamond stones.

I started out with a few, but lately I just seem to have the Police4 all the time. I guess I finally found 'the one'.
I'll carry a dragonfly as well sometimes.

I rotate them all. I think I have about 16, and they all see action in a 6 month period. I enjoy all the knives I have, so it makes it fun to rotate through them. Some more than others.

One of my few PM2s is with me daily. And the ones below are some of the more common ones in my rotation.

I used to rotate between my different Natives, but ever since I got the old ATS-55 version of the Rescue it hasn't left my pocket. Guess I've found my perfect knife. :)

Ok, nice pictures! I’m thinking I could rotate with (3) knives.

I’ve got my PM2 S110V in route, I may order a PM3, and a Military too. Then I’ll have the full set.

Foundry and k390 urban will be back soon. Carried the rubicon last week but it’s back in the spider pac now.

I have 26 out of my collection in rotation (loosely speaking), not all are Spyderco's. Activity dictates choice of style and size. The Spyderco's are PM2, Advocate, GB2 and Military. Lately one of my favorite EDCs are a set of three highly modified PM2s. Hoping to add the Ikuchi to my rotation in the very near future.

Looking forward to: FFG Pacific Salt, FRN Police 4, Swick 5, Native Chief

I’ve only carried a V-TOKU2 Endura since they dropped. So about 4 months now?

I normally carry whatever is the sharpest. I am pretty lazy with sharpening.

For the past two months I have mostly carried my M4 Military, Pattada, Maxamet Native5LW and since October 1st I have carried a pink Native5LW everyday. I seem to be rotating less lately. Honestly, life has been too busy to put too much attention towards the hobby.

In the big picture I have probably 50-60 users that I consider to be “in the rotation”.

What do you have so far?

Lately it's been mostly a Delica/Chaparral at the office, and PM2/Manix2/Military/Police4 elsewhere. Changes a lot though with all the new releases. I've been spending most of my time with the REX45 PM2, and tried to talk the Endura into a more serious relationship in the name of VTOKU2, but we're still trying to figure each other out.

I have had a lot (obviously less than a lot here). I'm down to one that i regularly pick up and put in my pocket, the carbon fiber/M4 pm2. I'd rather it have smooth micarta but it does everything i ask of it and demands more.

Maybe the micarta/cruwear shaman model will displace that. Or maybe it'll be too big, bulky, and heavy. I don't know. As of now, though, it's the m4 pm2 that totally reigns supreme and has knocked basically everything else out of any kind of contention.

I have two different situations, "office carry" (sub-2.5") and "outside office carry" (anything reasonable goes). For both, I have a small group of frequently carried knives, then a larger group that get carried occasionally but not as often as the others. In general I don't keep any knives that I don't carry at least once in a while.

For office carry there's a core group of two (One-Eyed Jack, Rhino). The V-Toku2 Meerkat, when it comes out, might push its way into this group.

For outside office carry the core group is a little more expansive. Besides the PM2 (in one of several variants) and the Southard, there are also several non-Spydies: the North Arm Skaha 2, the Sebenza, and a number of vintage Benchmades: the Tsunami (700), the AFCK (800), the Dark Star (880) and the Stryker (910). Albeit the AFCK is kind of an honorary Spydie ...

Generally I prefer nonserrated, noncoated blades. I still have some older partially serrated knives that I have sentimental attachment to, but I don't buy them these days except in unusual circumstances.
