Default Recommend me a Benchmade/ Spyderco for EDC

I get Benchmade 55% off MSRP and Spyderco 40% off MSRP through my employer. Looking to upgrade my EDC knife from my current S&W M&P. Any recommendations from you knife connoisseurs? I won't pretend to know much about them. I'd like something with assisted open, medium size blade and handle.

I don't know much about Benchmade but the Adamas is what I want to pick up. For Spyderco, check out domino which msrp for higher than 200 but street price is a lot less. Paramilitary 2 is always a classic but maybe on the larger side. Also the techno if u want a Taiwan made spyderco.

Benchmade has fantastic customer service, if you E-mail them with what you're looking for they'll give you a list. I've EDC'd a Nitrous Stryker Benchmade for 3 years and just replaced it with one of their Axis lock knives. As stated before the Lifesharp program is amazing and I couldn't be happier with my purchases.

I have a Benchmade Mini-Griptilian that I love. I had been carrying assisted openers, but don't miss it a bit. The Axis lock is really nice.

Benchmade Griptillian I've had it for a couple years and I carry it every day I love the action on it the blade dulls kinda fast but it has always worked well for me, just my 2 cents
