    I think its time to expand the collection with a real custom folder but thre are to much makers to choose from and some of them are really expensive.
    Do you guys have any advice what to look for that fits my collection i showed so far,and were to stay away from?

    Well, I only have one custom flipper, actually it's a front flipper, but the action is unparalleled by any knife I've ever owned of held. It's a TBC,(TBC = Trevor Burger Customs), EXK, (EXK = Excalibur) CFL, (CFL= Contoured Frame Lock), with a sheep's foot, m390, acid washed blade. Personally, I prefer a 3" blade or just under that, 2.87" or just over it, 3.2". The EXK is the smaller 3" version of Trevor's LEXK, (LEXK = Large Excalibur), which is 3.5" blade. They come with several different handle material options, and there are 4 types of the front flipper to choose from, there's the BASE model, which is a liner lock, with Carbon fiber, or Micarta handle scales on the front and back of the knife, that comes with an N690 blade steel, then there's the SFL = Slab Frame Lock, aptly named for its shaped slabs of Titanium handles, and m390 blade steel, then you have the PLUS model, which is again, a liner lock, Carbon Fiber scales, but with the addition of bolsters made from different materials such as C-tek, G10, fossilized mammoth tooth, and several other options, and lastly the CFL, which is what I have, with textured Titanium scales, but which also comes with a variety of show scale materials! All 4 models come in both sizes, the smaller EXK, or the larger LEXK, either way you cant go wrong! They are Awesome knives!
    Now, if front flippers aren't your thing, Trevor also makes a regular flipper called the ATLAS, and they come with all the previously afore mentioned handle materials.
    Those would be my suggestions! There are so many to chose from! Oh!!! Go check out Jamie Semion's work to! He makes the "Yeti" and the "Squatch." Since you like spyderco so much, he actually uses the spydie hole on his knives, with the permission of Spyderco! I recommend checking him out on Instagram.

    Here's the action on my TBC EXK.....

    Good luck on your quest!!!

    I love mine! I picked up the production Shamwari, made by WE knife co. for Gareth Bull, and I absolutely love it! Here's the action on it....

    http://imgur.com/a/7DNLFXh

    And I recently pre-ordered the Gareth Bull/Drop colab production Miura from the Drop website. It too is a front flipper, as most of my folder collection is. Right now I'm out with my wife, she had a Dr.'s apt, and in my back pocket i have an Artisan Cutlery mini Centauri. The reason it's in my back pocket is it's so thin that I never even feel it back there. Since I don't leave the house without at least 3 knives on me, it's the perfect back pocket carry I've ever seen. I have the vg10 Damascus, with carbon fiber show scale. It also comes in s35vn, and a Micarta show scale. I prefer the front flipper because of the fact that you can deploy the blade in so many different ways, as fast as an automatic, plus there's the "fidget" factor. Theres no "pocket pecker" putting a hole it your pocket either! And they just look badass too.

    Here's a shot of some of my Carbon Fiber clad knives, as well as some of my front flippers. I'm considering selling my CF Rep, but I'm on the fence about it. Whether or not we get that second stimulus is going to be a deciding factor on whether I do or not.
