    I carry my Gayle Bradley every day. Sometimes I carry my Lum Chinese carbon fiber but more often than not the Gayle Bradley gets the nod.

    I like the native, although it is a relatively large knife to roll around with in your pocket. My most carried is a bug. It is the smallest decent knife that I own and has held up great over the last year with heavy use. Used to carry an endura, ladybug, delica, military, sage etc.

    My Manix 2 and Paramilitary 2 get carried the most, but I also have a Tenacious, a pair of Delica 4's, a Centofante 3, and a Kiwi.

    Currently I EDC a Persistence.

    [​IMG]

    I tried the Dragonfly G10 for a day, but HATED (strong word) the lockback and the size. Beautiful knife otherwise. It went back to the store.

    [​IMG]

    On order is a Sage 1 CF. I opted for this over the Persistence because I've been craving a finger choil to choke up on the knife. The Persistence doesn't have a choil.

    (Pic coming)

    I'm also very interested in the Spyderco Cat. I fear it will be too small since it's very close in size to the Dragonfly2. It does offer a choil and other wise is close enough to the Persistence.

    I have one major complaint with Spyderco's in spite of them being my favorite knife. Most of the knives look cheap. I think FRN is a terrible looking material and I personally would never own one. I find it funny that the budget series of Spyderco's actual have the look and LOCK I prefer.

    Otherwise their customer service is fantastic! The overseas budget knives have great quality (speaking specifically of my experience with the Persistence/China and the Dragonfly2/Taiwan).

    I get a knife and mirror in one. Works good for plugging USB's in the back of computers and checking for spinach in my teeth.

    I usually have a SE and a PE Endura 2 on me 99% of the time.
    The rest of the time I carry as S30V Native that I bought at Wallyworld.

    Sage carbon fiber handle, Cally 3: Both are a great size and fit in hand. And both have very nice jimping to them. They both fall into my ideal 2.25-3.25 (ish) range of blade length for EDC. To avoid too many replies off the subject of this tread, this range is just a basic criteria, which isnt a do or die for me. It all depends on the knife itself. I used to have a SSteel Police, very nice knife, but a little to large (length) blade for my EDC liking. Nice and thin knife though!!! I occasionally use the G-10 Police 3 fully serated for working on home interior and exteior work. I dont care for full serrads, but since i have it, i use it. Hope this was helpful even though i dont have as many listed as others

    Paramilitary 2. I had a tenacious, carried it maybe 3 times and a Native III. I gave both up. Most of the models I have had were just two wide.

    The Tenacious was my first Spydie; I loved it so much, I bought a Native (FRN) and a Police (G10) soon after. Spyderco makes such wicked blades, I definitely need to get some more.

    I call for a Military with a Ti framelock and a G10 scale, with TIP-UP CARRY! (Preferably for $200 or less) WHO'S WITH ME?
