Caribbean

  • 3.70″ Sheepsfoot Blade
  • LC200N Blade Steel
  • G-10 Handle Scales
  • 4.20 oz.
  • Compression Lock
  • Made in Taiwan

I absolutely love the Caribbean. The LC200N blade steel, rustproof liners, and hardware are definitely going to be useful for rust prone situations. I highly recommend this knife. Perfect grip with the textured G-10 scales and a good bit of jimping on the spine to get a great and solid purchase on the knife.

  • 3.125″ Wharncliffe Blade
  • CPM-S30V Blade Steel
  • G-10 Handle Scales
  • 4.00 oz.
  • Compression Lock
  • Made in USA

Good steel, grippy G10, very ergonomic, and the aggressive Wharncliffe blade shape is a great slicer. Love the Compression Lock. Very quality piece and definitely an eye-catcher to bring out with fellow knife-nuts. A+

Chaparral

  • 2.81″ Drop Point Blade
  • CTS-XHP Blade Steel
  • Carbon Fiber Handle Scales
  • 2.50 oz.
  • Lockback
  • Made in Taiwan

Picked this knife up a year ago to start a gentleman’s carry collection. Its one of the greats for that purpose. This lil guy can slice like nobody’s business. Its a thin knife with an awesome finger choil. As such, you can really get some cutting in with this guy.

Manix 2

Spyderco Manix 2

  • 3.375″ Drop Point Blade
  • CPM-S30V Blade Steel
  • G-10 Handle Scales
  • 5.00 oz.
  • Ball Bearing Lock
  • Made in USA

This is a solid knife (you definitely feel the 5 oz. heft) built with quality materials. There’s plenty of jimping all around this knife and ergonomics feel really good. It has that beautiful leaf shape blade that so many Spydercos have. The Ball Bearing Lock is interesting. At first glance it looks similar to an Axis Lock, but when you take the knife apart it’s built very different. It’s another very popular knife and a must have for knife collectors.

  • 3.32″ Sheepsfoot Blade
  • LC200N Blade Steel
  • Titanium Handle Scales
  • 3.78 oz.
  • Frame Lock
  • Made in Taiwan

This is a great design. Very ergonomic and disappears in the pocket. The LC200N steel is amazing. Takes a keen edge and holds it well.

Paramilitary 2

  • 3.44″ Clip Point Blade
  • CPM-S30V Blade Steel
  • G-10 Handle Scales
  • 3.75 oz.
  • Compression Lock
  • Made in USA

I’ve owned a couple Spyderco knives before buying the Para 2 and love every one of them. Para 2 comes sharp, stays sharp, and the opening and closing of it is great. No complaints about the knife. I look forward to using it for a long time.

Para 3

  • 3.00″ Clip Point Blade
  • CPM-S30V Blade Steel
  • G-10 Handle Scales
  • 3.00 oz.
  • Compression Lock
  • Made in USA

I own almost 10 Spydercos, and when this arrived today, I was in heaven. Right out of the box, the opening is smooth as silk. The Compression Lock is perfect, and the S30V is crisp. My only wish is that I would have bought this knife month’s ago.

Military

  • 4.00″ Clip Point Blade
  • CPM-S110V Blade Steel
  • G-10 Handle Scales
  • 4.24 oz.
  • Liner Lock
  • Made in USA

This is the best design for a tip-down EDC I’ve seen. The ease of deployment, authoritative opening and super lightweight are my favorite features. The blade is beautiful, and overall construction is precise and strong. Cheers! Thank you.

Delica

  • 2.875″ Drop Point Blade
  • VG-10 Blade Steel
  • FRN Handle Scales
  • 2.50 oz.
  • Lockback
  • Made in Japan

Fantastic EDC knife. Everything from the size, to the fit, to the steel. It may not be a super steel, but it is easy to sharpen, it takes a wicked edge, and for the price it is a knife you wont feel bad abusing!
