    This ainít no little pocket knife

    Just received this Spyderco Resilience from an eBay purchase.
    It has a 4.25 inch blade and has that ďsubstantialĒ feel. The Benchmade in the picture has a 2.9 inch blade for comparison. This is now my EDC.

    Have had a couple of the Spyderco products ... Delica blades, and a Native.

    The Native was fairly "substantial" but was fairly short.

    This Resilience sounds interesting, with its 4.25in blade.


    Let us know how it works, over time. Durability, toughness, edge-holding, etc.

    Nice.

    I still have one of the 3 Enduras I purchased ... losing the other 2 when i forgot I cannot EDC on an airplane. I also have a a few Kershaws but prefer the the spydee hole opener to the flipper. I paid $39 total on ebay for the Resilience. Here is a youtube review of the Resilience. All of his negative comments seem to be his personal preference: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=nCJSp5Vsykw

    Nutnfancy does a more positive review on the same knife ... but I can’t stomach 21 minutes of Nutnfancy.

    I have the Resilience and have had for about 3 years. It is a great knife that is easy to sharpen and holds an edge.

    It looks good, and it looks big and stout; just the thing for serious situations IMHO.
