Pros: Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Lock Ease of Use, Handle Feel, Blade Material
Excellent salt water knife
I have been using my Spydiechef for a few weeks now for daily carry, salt water fishing, and some food prep. The LC200N blade takes a very fine edge, holds it longer than H1 in plain edge, and sharpens easily. Perhaps it does not even need to be mentioned, but my Spydiechef has been absolutely corrosion-free after taking it into the ocean. The shape of the knife lends it fine control due to the blade's flat spine and the grip's contour. Depending on the task at hand, the drop point blade geared towards slicing and cutting rather than stabbing can be advantageous. The lack of finger choil on the cutting side of the blade provides more cutting edge for slicing up things like an apple. Fit and finish on my Spydiechef is pretty much perfect. The lock did stick initially but none exists after break in. Overall this is a superb knife for me. Prior to owning the Spydiechef, I most often carried a Paramilitary 2, Pacific Salt, Salt 1, or Delica 4. The Spydiechef is not as robustly built as a Paramilitary 2, nor as lightweight as a Pacific Salt, Delica 4, or Salt 1, but I find it to be most useful of all of the knives I own.
