    Spyderco Urban for me, I just love that knife. I also have a UK Penknife, but I just prefer the ergonomics and overall appearance of the Urban.

    Used to carry an Endura that had a plastic (Zytel, i think) Clip. Moved on to the Endura with the Metal Clip. Now i carry the Tenacious.

    hmmmm- lots of Delica's :) no real surprise, it's lightweight, ergonomic, fits well in a pocket while still having a very useable length blade, good steel AND is relatively easy on the pocketbook ;D

    Most time;
    1) Spyderco Salt-has the krein regrind.. (most abused knife for for cutting. I use it in the kitchen all the time and then into the dishwasher)..so this is by far my most used knife.
    2) Spyderco Police (sees a lot of back pocket time for self defense while traveling to places like brazil. But now i am replacing it with the Military!!)

    two new additions that will see more time:

    3) Spyderco brown Military - my favorite...(love this new spyderco for back pocket carry!)
    4) spyderco para 2 camo w/black blade-newst addition and is seeing lots of front pocket carry. Just wish it was a liner lock instead.



    Salts 1 and pacific Salt in Maui!

    My lava does not have etched handles. It also cleaves, but not as much as depicted in the photo.

    The Stretch in VG-10 has dominated my knife pocket for months now, a distant second would be the Tenacious combo edge. My absolute favorite was the Sage 1 (until I gave it to my girlfriend).

    Quick follow up on some new Spydies.

    The Sage 1 was returned. I had to find money for the Native 5. I EDC the N5 currently. Below are the Cat G10, Persistence, and N5. I also picked up and returned a PM2. I had to get my hands on one due to the great feedback. It wasn't for me. A little too big for my EDC tastes and the compression lock wasn't as fun being a lefty.

    Here is another shot of my N5 lily pad.

    A couple more shots of the N5.

    The Native 5 is a great knife. Perfect size, finger choil, blade shape, and G10. The blade steel is CPM S35VN which is debated online regarding quality. I have no opinion either way, but I will say it does fine. Takes a great edge and holds it. I still hate the lockback, but the knife is so nice otherwise. It does have a pivot bushing, so the blade will collapse with the lock released. This makes one-handed opening and closing much easier compared to normal lockbacks. This is the most money I've spend on a knife ($123 eBay), but excellent knife.
