    As some of you fine folks may know, I'm heading for Florida in a few hours. I'll be down there mostly for vacation, ie beach, kayaking, snorkeling, maybe a theme park, but also to house/condo hunt. I'm already bringing My Spyderco Pacific Salt for the water adventures but which one should I EDC around town and houses and stuff? I hadn't given this any real thought because I was just going to take my PM2 but what about my Southard!? Wait, how about the Sage. Then I thought I'd just take all of them since the wife and I are driving.
    So since I'm on the fence I leave it up to the forum! I'll be leaving around 5pm EST. I leave it solely to the forums!

    Not sure why I don't already have a stand alone pic of the Salt!?

    I live in Florida, and with the humidity down here and and water sports you'll be doing I would go with the Salt. But bring the PM2 for back up and for when you go out to eat and such. Have fun! ;)

    Sooo Florida trip was awesome! Thanks to everyone who voted or wanted to but was late to the party. :D

    I pretty much got lost in my trip but I did remember to take a few EDC specific pix.

    I used my Salt mostly to spread cream cheese on bagels. It was on me every time I went in the ocean or floated on it's surface. :) My best friend used it to cut something, no idea what, and when he handed me the knife back he had a very worried and anxious look on his face... told me the knife was too sharp.:rolleyes_revamped: Gotta love the Sharpmaker!! Also, used the Salt to clean my nails while the Kayak guide gave his loooong and boring safety brief. After the brief he pulled me aside and asked if I had plans of hurting a Manatee. WOW! :nah_disagree: I giggled and said "NO". He then recommended I leave it behind because it will rust... H1 conversation ensued. I'm pretty sure he didn't believe me but maybe he'll google it.:cool:
    Only pic I took of the Salt...

    The PM2 was my true EDC. I used it countless times. The best and only documented time was cutting open a coconut!
