    Agreed!

    I prefer Kershaw though between those two!

    I'd go Spyderco, personally. Spyderco SEEMS more bulletproof across the line and something just bugs me about Kershaws in general. Can't say why.

    They both have great knives and cheaper knives.

    I prefer Spyderco in general, but the Kershaw composite Leek is one of my favorite EDC knives.

    I've never owned a Spyderco so I cant say anything about them, but I have owned Kershaw and they are a damn good knife:thumbsup:

    I was mostly joking.

    I have both and will say that the Spyderco seems just a tad more durable but my Skyline is just such a sexy knife.

    I like Spyderco's new Para military II.

    As for the question... there is no better. There is just "what fits your needs". My $20 Cold Steel Kukri is "better" at what I need it to do than both those knives.

    Spyderco is what I'd go with between those two, but they have gotten a little stupid with their designs like we're all in an action movie or something. Actually, the last knife I bought ended up being a Benchmade Griptilian because it's a more conventional design...it just works.

    Spyderco knives are my favorite. I have several of them. Kershaw is a great knife too.

    Zero Tolerance (Kershaw) for sure.Their knives are built like tanks and are reasonably priced. With that said, the paramilitary 2 is always in my pocket.

    I have always been a kershaw fanboy but that was mostly because of ken onion, now that they have dumped him I don't know I guess it's a toss up between spyderco and benchmade

    My outdoors knife is a Zero Tolerance 350.

    My work knife is a Spyderco Rookie.

    Both have pulled my bacon out of the fire on numerous occasions.
