What is your favorite folder you own?

I recently got my first Hinderer. I love this thing and it has taken over my front pocket for full time carry duty. It feels very secure in the hand, and quality is top notch. I think I found my new favorite



Hinder Eklipse

I go between several Kershaw's, Spyderco's and the Benchmade Mini Griptillian with D-2 steel. But it seems the Benchade wins most often. Although there are qualities about the others that I like. It just depends on the situation.

PM2!



Edit:
Honorable mention goes to the Delica4. Similar style knife in a smaller, lighter package.

Yes, I am a Spyderco fanboy. I have the other big brands too, but none compare. Many people steer away from Spyderco due to the unique appearance. I was that way once too. Then on a whim, tried one. OMG! The SpyderHole is the most perfect idea the folding knife world has seen. IMO, of course.

Just looked at those Hinderer knives. They're awesome. Then I looked at the prices.

My daily carry is a full sized Benchmade Ascent (long discontinued). It's backup is an AlMar Eagle or an old Henckels folder that looks like a Case Sodbuster (but much, much sharper...). I also keep a new Griptillian with special lanyard as an emergency blade on my skiff (coated with grease,brand new, in a plastic sleeve to protect it from saltwater....

Working out of a small skiff in the saltwater portions of the Everglades I've had learn more than I ever wanted to about corrosion.

I guess mine would have to be this old Benchmade AFCK.
(Advanced Folding Combat Knife)

It's rode many a mile in my pockets for a lot of years.
If there is a better knife, I haven't found it yet.

The only thing that would make it better is if it had the Axis Lock instead of a liner lock.

It's just right in too many ways to figure it out!


PS: But the one I had been EDC'ing for the last three months is a Coast BX-309 from Home Depot for $9.95!!

The sucker just keeps on cutting with next to no sharpening.

For me, it's a "dead heat" finish.

Either/both are my favorite of all time. Being general prying-scraping-wedging tools as much if not more than cutting tools, these have been flawless for me.

Each is exceptionally well made.
Each is supported by outstanding customer service.
Each holds a weirdly stable re-sale/trade value should it come to that though in this case, each was a gift; one from the maker and the other from my-gal-Sal so sale/trade is moot.

I carry a big Benchmade auto AFTK I believe. Stays sharp and has enough weight to feel very good in my large hands. Mine has the 1/2 serrtted blade. I wish it was all standard blade. I don't carry it much any more, it was pretty costly when I bought it. I'd feel really bad if I lost it. So for most days tasks I carry a Milano auto stilleto. Not near the knife but I wouldn't choke up if I lost it.

I own many knives but my favorite daily carries are my Opinels.
I like the carbon steel varieties for daily chores and they are inexpensive.

My usual is a Spyderco Tenacious and my Sunday knife is a Kershaw Chill. The Chill is just a greased lightning opener and ended my yearning for ever wanting a switchblade.

My Opinel 12 is kitchen duty on fruits and vegtables.

Right now it's a Cold Steel XL Voyager, clip point. I use that thing for everything. After using it a lot over many months, I think this when I use my other knives: I can't use that knife. That knife's too small to cut stuff.

Colt CT591

This cheap D2 steel folder gets the most time
in my pocket. Simple and not intimidating anyone.
