Hi P35,

For me its a toss up between the Goddard Light and the AFCK.

The Goddrad Light would win for sure if it had a G10 handle and a stronger lock up.

My Calipso junior BM, plain edge, is a juwel. Fast, good looking, and very sharp. Just how a pocked knife should be.

My favorite Spyderco daily carry is a toss up between the Harpy and the Dragon Fly for my pocket and the Military in my waistband.

My son's favorite carry is his Worker.

My other son carries his Lady Bug

We're a Spyderco family!

I ALWAYS have my Mini Dyad, it rides in my "watch pocket" (sans clip). Hoping for a larger version !
When I'm on my bike I've got a Cricket in my jersey pocket.
At work it's the Wegner in back pocket, sometimes the Endura.
I also carry a Remote Release hooked inside my cordura briefcase.
In my van is a Delica or Calypso jr. in the coin tray.

Well I guess I'm going to deviate a tad in that my favorite daily carry is a Spydie Moran in an Edge-Works slip sheath in my front right pocket. I usually carry a folder too, either a one-hand opener or a small traditional pocket knife like my Henckel's Whittler.

My daily carry is a Wegner Jr. It is small enough to avoid undue comment at work (I'm a teacher and it is illegal, here, to carry any knife in a school) but has enough heft to cope with most tasks.

One may want to keep an Eye out for my review of the Bob Kasper designed, Kevin Gentile modified AFCK and interview of Bob Kasper.

Marion David Poff fka Eye, one can msg me at [email protected]

Patiently waiting for the Spyderco SpydeRench, Lum Chinese Chopper Folder, Rolling Lock Martial Folder, Shabaria and JD Smith, heck if it si from Spyderco I'm anxious; REKAT Escalator and Pat Crawford design.

Oh, c' mon, who carrys just one?:)^) My favorite carry if only one, is the Spyderco Tim Wegner. Does everything I' ve needed a knife for. Also, a Moki Zephyr or Elite, feels just like the Crawford Leopard Cub but at about 1/4 the price! And a very underrated folder that deserves a closer look. See what I mean, just one?:)^)

Well, for me it either is a C36 Military in plain or serrated and a C48GPS Wegner. Other times maybe the C54BMS Calypso. I'm usually carrying two folders daily and one of 'em is usually something from Spyderco.

Man, you can't go wrong with just about anything Spyderco makes. Both Wegners are fabulous. The Mini-Dyad is a little treat. What's not to like about the Calypso Jr., especially Micarta handled. I could go on and on. My everyday carry Spydercos are serrated C36 Military at work and a plain edged little "Cricket" on my work keys key chain. At home or out and about, my plain edge version C36 Military, (ALWAYS a Military on my person), and possibly my little Dyad. These are just the Spyders I carry, other assorted knive "goodies" are with me also.

I have to admit though that I really like my Spyder Morans that Bob, (ye ol' Bald 1), got me to buy. I have to quit procrastinating and order me an Edge-Works slip sheath that Bob designed that I affectionately call "The Bald Eagle" because he designed a winner and it "soars".

I have a bunch of folders but it seems that I'm always carrying my Delica Stainless Serr.
It's the perfect size and can handle most any job.

Usual combination: Spyderco Military (serrated) in the hip pocket, Benchmade 640 (plain edge) in the shirt pocket. plus an SAK, a Leatherman, and a GT Mini Auto on my keychain, just because it's a CA-legal auto.

Normal days wear: Delica98 in right front, SAK in left. For full dress occasions, replace the Delica with a damascus Worker. When headed into the mountains to bag critters on film, the Military does the trick with a SwissTool on the belt.
Like any dedicated knife knut, the answer depends (It also helps justify the collection.)

For dress occasions I carry a nice,
stag handled small Hubertus auto

My favorite non-dress folder is a 50/50 Delica. Perfect size for daily carry.

Its a pretty tough knife. If you lose or break it, its only about $30 bucks to replace. Of course, mines about 5 years old :)

Wegner (what the Military should have been in terms of build quality) and the Endura 98 (light, attrative, ATS-55, sharp, and priced right.

You can generally find a Dragonfly on me somewhere. Sometimes an Umfaan or Vero Beach mini-UDT, and often a Cheyenne or Socom.
If I have an idea that I'll be outdoors, I'll have a REKAT Pioneer.
I can't remember the last time I didn't carry a knife.
