I've been carrying this Spyderco for about two years now. It's been terrific for EDC and been plenty durable with only a couple runs through a sharpener and regular honing. The S110V steel has worked fine with very little oil. It's amazingly light weight, and carries like a champ. I like that the clip is rounded so it doesn't gash my car seats or steering wheel.

The Manix is a nice knife. How are you liking the S110V? Ive got a PM2 and a Para 3 in S110V. Those are two of my most carried knives.

It's proved to be very durable and rust-resistant over the last two years of reasonable use. The light weight is such a huge benefit, that allows me to carry a larger blade without the penalty. I can wear it on lighter khakis or dress pants without dragging on the pocket.

Got my Dragonfly yesterday. Was screwing around closing it, showing my kids, and caught the side of my index finger....sliced like a razor. Just enough to draw blood. LOL

That'll learn ya, knifes are sharp!

I figure I'll have to buy myself a Spyderco for xmas. My current carry is a folding Kershaw. I have a whole drawer full of pocket and sheathed knives. I don't have a favorite, I like them all..

I'm a big PM2 fan, I've got 4 currently. I've also got 4 Para 3s and a Sage 5. I guess I like the compression lock, 'eh?

I love Spydercos too. They are incredibly rugged and stay sharp longer than you would expect. I love the hole for one hand opening.

Thing of beauty. It would almost be a shame to use art like that for its intended purpose.
