For several years I carried a Spyderco Police until I recently upgraded to the Spyderco Military which seems to be a much more capable knife.
How does the list feel the Military compares to other production and custom models? Strengths and weaknesses?
Does anyone have an opinion on the Spyderco Civilian as a combat knife?
Finally, I'm quite partial to the Spyderco "hole in the blade" style of opening. Thumb studs just don't work as well for me.
Does anyone know of a top flight custom knifemaker that uses the Spyderco style of hole?
I'm aware of A.T. Barr, but he is not taking orders at this time as he has a two year backlog.
Thanks for the help.
