We all buy different size knives and blade designs for many different reasons, hunting, work edc, and for around the house, however, I think we all have 1 that seems to get more use than the others. Whats your Top 3 ?

My current is
1. Para 3
2. Manix 2
3. Tenacious

My top 3 looks like this:
1. Manix 2, M390/CPM20CV and G10 scales.
2. Southard CTS204P and Brown G10 scales.
3. Chaparral or Delica with upgraded blade steel.

This question has been asked before and I listed 66 knives listed as the "top three" in 22 different categories in response.

See: My Top Three Favorite Spyderco Knives By Category.

My opinion of the top 3 knives in each category hasn't changed much but I did sell a couple of the knives previously listed since then.

You can also review the 5 pages of the above referenced thread for other people's opinions regarding their 3 Spyderco favorites at that time.

1. Pacific Salt (1 or 2)
2. PM2
3. Spydiechef

My number 1 & 2 spots have remained consistent for the last 10 years but number 3 is subject to change over time.

I prefer backlocks, and liner/framelocks. If the Para2 had one of these, it would probably bump out the Manix. I also prefer to carry a knife with lighter/thinner FRN.

Military
Endura
Manix
