    Then tried the Paramilitary 2 carbon fiber and really love the action,steel and fit in my hand, compression lock Very nice!
    So..I bought the Manix 2 told it was blue but it was actually "blurple" hmm? but I love the ergos so I bought the C.F. and knew I was in trouble!! Fantastic!! I'll NEVER have too buy another knife!!
    Holy crap! An exclusive Shaman? Man it's a friggin beast,perfect for work! TUFF! with no worry of breaking from really hard use!
    Definitely the only knife I need!!
    Then I saw the exclusive Native5 rex45 in burnt orange..well that's different??
    It took the honor of Fantastic! Last knife I'll ever buy..oh wait? There's a native in C.F. S90v well I love me some carbon fiber so this will now be the best "last" knife..

    Mariner. Original early-Eighties. Long-lost, in the Trinity River delta, in SE Texas, but not forgotten.

    Police. Original early-Eighties. I still have it. The tip is missing, but I still cut things with it, occasionally.

    Bram Frank Gunting. Best fit, in my hands, of any Spyderco folder. I have several of these.

    Ronin. Original version. I have several of these.

    Civilian. Bought for its original purpose. My blade training evolved, over time, but the nicely-slim Civilian has never lost its niche.

    Kiwi, with jigged-bone handle scales. Beautiful.

    Assist. Wonderful emergency knife. I have used the glass-breaker component, in an emergency situation. A lifetime knife. I plan to buy spares, with orange and/or yellow handles. Black disappears from views, all too easily.

    Fish Hunter. I liked the first one so much, I bought another. This one is not a one-trick pony, so I might accumulate a few more, as this could be a lifetime favorite.

    I had hoped to handle some tempting prospects, at the Blade Show, this year, which might have updated/refreshed my favorites, but, of course, the “health emergency of 2020” intervened.

    I keep hoping they'll do a sprint run of the Ronin, I never thought they would do one for the PPT but they did so I have hope.

    My number one is definitely Manix 2. Native 5 and Chaparral are in the second place and Delica 4 is the third.

    The Civilian and Matriarch line are my favorite by far. But I've also always loved the Military.

    I carry a military the most, by far.

    Best feeling Spyderco I've ever handled is the proficient. Mine will arrive tomorrow.

    Between the Manix 2 and the Delica 4, I'm pretty happy.
    I really gotta get my hands on a Shaman one of these days, and the Native 5 looks like something I'd love. But at this point, I'm pretty content.
