This is a discussion on Spyderco phase within the Knives forums, part of the Firearm Forum category; for whatever reason i never owned a Spyderco knife, so im fixing that. i got a couple more on the way. (military, and paramilitary)
for whatever reason i never owned a Spyderco knife, so im fixing that. i got a couple more on the way. (military, and paramilitary)
the Cat (Taiwan made), the Native(Golden Colorado) and the Police model(Seki City Japan). all very well made, extremely sharp, and the top two are being used and holding up very well.
I bought my first Delica about 15 years ago and have owned about 15 Spydercos since.
I thought of buying a Benchmade several times, but always ended buying another Spyderco. Both companies make really great knives but its a Ford/chevy thing I guess.
yep, it comes with the plain blade or the 50/50 as well. i dont mind sharpening a serrated blade, so i figured i try something a little different.
you also have a choice of stainless or G10 for the handle, i went with the more durable but pricier of the two.

I have a lot of knives from Benchmade, SOG, Cold Steel, and one Spyderco Paramilitary II. Every time I switch to another knife for my EDC, within a day I have that Spyderco back in my pocket. It is sharp as a scalpel, light weight, thin, and easy to open.
My wife's ex introduced me to Spyderco knives and I have owned nothing else since. Just retired a Jess Horn that I have had for 12 years due to a co worker snapping off the tip of the blade. Replaced that one with a Tenacious Plain Edge G-10, and though it's is a bit larger, it's working great and I am confident it will be with me for years to come.
Huge Spyderco fan here. I have about 10 different models right now. My first was the Tasman salt because I used to live near and worked at a beach. And now I have various others from the salt line up and some regular spydercos. All models are pretty amazing knives.
I've owned a lot of knives, and the only one that I have ever missed was my stainless delica. It was stolen from me when I was in the army... I did finally replace it, and I'm glad I did. I'm not wild about the composite handled delicas, but the stainless one is my bread and butter knife. I love it.
You can't go wrong with spyderco or benchmade for all around guaranteed quality though.
