@Moshe ben David I agree. When is comes to pocket knives Spyderco is my brand of choice. They make so many nice ones. This Spydiechef is my fifth Spderco and the ones I have run the gamut with the exception of Seki City. I don't have one from there but I did get my Dad a Delica. I have carried a Persistence for three years now exclusively. It does not have a sought after steel but it is such a high quality knife none the less it has just been my trusted companion. I saw this Spydiechef the other day and the ergonomics screamed to the cook in me. Being single and very picky about what I eat I cook a lot and even when not at home I am constantly having to fend for myself on the road or at other peoples houses. I once toyed with the idea of using my PM2 for my on the road chefing activities but it was just not the right knife for that. This one is perfect for what I do with a knife and I think it will also handle all the things I took care of with my Persistence. People are always wanting me to whip this or that up when I am around and a lot of people don't own a sharp knife at all. I love that this Spydiechef is wash and wear, open framed, corrosion resistant and shaped for food tasks. I like the pocket clip so far too. Nice and secure. It is a winner.
