Well, I guess that answers the question of how important the appearance of a knife is to most people - a lot - but I think I already knew that. So just to get back to the specific knives I mentioned, the Benchmade 940 and the Spyderco Paramilitary 2 - which are two of the quintessential EDC knives - I wonder what most of you think about the way these knives look. To me - and I don't own either knife - the 940 looks slim and elegant, like a sports car. The PM 2 looks like someone measured exactly what the angle of the spine would need to be in order to fit the hole in, with the least amount of steel at the top of the hole, and then cut a straight line at that angle. In other words, it looks like the solution to a geometry problem - function over form. Don't get me wrong - I own several Spydercos and like them a lot - and my aversion to the PM2 is obviously just a personal preference. I was just curious what other people think about these two knives, both of which clearly have devoted fan bases - and clearly there is no right or wrong opinion about them.
