3rd Omega spring to go in 6 months of ownership 🥲
Only had one break after years of use. Maybe try something that uses my other favorite lock, compression. You can get a PM2, or Kapara since it reminds me of the 940 but way more ergo. Spyderco also makes the Manix with ball bearing lock.

My Spyderco Kapara CQI with Ironwood scales from Cuscadi - what is your opinion on the Kapara?
Kapara is a great knife and deserves to become a classic Spyderco. Great ergonomics, really useful blade shape, awesome blade to handle ratio, slim design, great compression lock action.

Help choosing a folding knife!
I’d recommend the kapara. It’s a little big, but getting it chopped could be a great mod to get in the future.
Very good knife - Almost excellent
Long story short, just get this knife. It’s one of the best knife Spyderco made hands down.
My only complaint and for this knife to get 4 stars and not 5 is because the compression lock being small and slippery - for the best ergonomics, Spyderco needs to address those issues and then u got a knife ...

Spyderco Military Titanium Custom with Leather scabbard-holster
Nice! Blade shape makes it look kind of like a heavy duty liner lock Kapara. Sweet carry setup too in that scabbard. 10/10.
Sorry if this doesn’t belong here-
That is the best budget knife in my opinion and will give you a good perspective of what you can get with your money. Then I would add a nice bugout. You can get a 535bk-4 for around $200 on knife swap, which is a great knife. If you want something a little bigger then I would go with the spyderco kapara or trm atom both you can get for around $200.

Looking for a new EDC, preferably with a finger choil.
Well If you want a folder with a finger choil then it’s probably gonna be a Spyderco, and if it’s gonna be a Spyderco I’d go with THE BEST one currently in production-the Kapara... It’s just hard to beat for an all around edc, it replaced the PM2/3 for me... Good looking, perfect thickness(slices like a wetdream but not too thin to worry), light weight(same weight as a pm3 but w/ a bigger blade, even pockets/carries better!
