On the table today, Spyderco Native 5 Salt.
LC200N is super rust resistant and keeps a good edge considering itís level of corrosion resistance.
H1 could not rust but it was soft like butter.

I really like small EDC knives and have a few.
Like this Spyderco Chaparral Lightweight.
This model came out a while ago as a classic small gentlemanís carry knife in s30v and Carbon Fibre scales. They bring out different versions of this knife every year or so and these can he had in man jewelry like Titanium and brushed aluminum for big money.
They switched to CTS-XHP when they released the second version and it has been in this steel ever since.
The lightweight is not like any other Spydercos from Japan and has a stop pin mechanism and the awesome fold over clip. Made in Taichung the best of the factories Spyderco use.
The LW is the latest of the Chaparrals and the most practical of the lot.
Itís super thin and slicey.

Yes, but I ordered reusable face masks with the Blade so therefore they sent the blade with the parcel so not sure if the blades & other equipment are on the essential list.  :thumleft:

I like that blade.  Chinese steel or tool steel option?  Which is best?

Is D2 a better option in the Honey Badgers than 8Cr13MoV ?

As with all blades it depends.

D2 is tougher (wont snap as easy) and it will hold an edge longer.
8Cr is more stainless and D2 will rust and pattern if not cared for properly.

8Cr is cheaper too. If you have a system to touch up the blade often there is no real reason to get D2.

But I would get D2.

Will he keep it clean? 
D2 then. 

If he loses things a lot go for 8Cr13MoV and just keep replacing.

You have the Blade Buddy to easily sharpen for him, I would say go for the 8Cr13MoV.
