I've had several spyderco knives over the past couple years. I've had tenacious,manix 2 lightweight ,native 5 lightweight, meadowlark 2 and Raven by Byrd and now have a para 3. I use traditional alot,but usually have. Amodern folder with me for ease of access and bigger blade for tougher tasks. I liked all of them . The maniix is just bigger than what I need and takes up too much space. Honestly I'd have to say the native 5 and meadowlark 2 are my favorites. If I could only have one spyderco it would be a native 5. Mine got taken by a family member lol. I will probably trade the para 3 for a native ,I just like the blade and the handle on a native more than in the para what is your favorite spyderco ?
