Nobody builds an ugly knife better than Cold Steel!
But Spyderco sure try their best! :)
I hope you're not referring to the Tenacious model (I own two and carry one daily). On the other hand, if you mean the Yojimbo, I couldn't agree with you more!
To be honest, the whole spyderco look has never been my favourite. As one YouTube reviewer put it: they’re made for the hand, not for the eye. They’re good quality knives but I just prefer a more conventional style.
I’m traditional guy; what’s your idea of a nice traditional knife—not too expensive, just kind of “regular“?
It’s mostly the blade shape for me. I’m usually drawn to a classic clip or drop point. as you can see from this sample of my collection, they don’t have to be traditional in the strictest sense, I just prefer classic blade shapes. The buck 110 is probably my favourite though a little big for EDC. That Gerber gator is from the ‘90s when they were still made in Portland.
Though the blade isn’t the best, a leatherman is my go-to for edc.
Definitely with you on the blade shape/style. Traveling now, but I’ll add a few shots of similar knives you might approve of when I get home.
