It's the most perfect knife I've ever owned.

Just FYI, I had one of the screws that holds the clip on fall out of my Twitch II. I called SOG, ended up leaving a message, and within an hour, I had a call back and they're going to ship me a new screw. I haven't received it yet, but I must say, I was surprised, and impressed, with how quickly they returned my call.
1: Kershaw (Ken Onion)
2: Meyerco (Blackie Collins)
3: Temberline (Butch Vallotton)
4: SOG (unknown)
5: Camillus (Phil Gibbs)
6: Benchmade (unknown, but looks like Butch's design)
7: Gerber (unknown, but looks like Butch's design)
8: CRKT (unsure)
I find them easier to use than my SOG Flash assisted-opening knife.
I am able to open AND close them using only one hand, which I find very handy. A simple flick of the wrist is all it takes to pop them open, and another flick of the wrist to close them. Much easier, in my opinion.
That being said.... I love my Leek, and the S.O.G knives are really nice (but too light for my liking). Kershaw makes good asists with no weird safeties or locks or buttons.
My Whirlwind is a great EDC. My friend's Vapor is slimmer for carry, and very nice as well.
I'm going to buy a Boa or Blur soon (once I can find a great price on 'em).
I like them - -

I bought a Kershaw Scallion, a Ken Onion design, at Academy Sports & Outdoors, about a year ago. Don't recall the price, but it seemed reasonable. I installed a tri-function lanyard and deactivated the little safety button.
The very sharp point LOOKS a little delicate for rough use, but hey, it's a lightweight knife. The fine point is useful for splinter/thorn removal. I keep it in off-side hip pocket and like the accessibility for times when my strong hand is busy.
I'm looking for a larger, stronger, version to use as primary knife, to replace my CRKT M16-13Z - - Which I also like very well.
I'll go +1 on the Kershaw's
I bought a Leek with the half serrated blade, and it was a great work knife. Used to have fun passing it around the office and answering the 'Aren't switchblades illegal?' question.
For my wifes last birthday, I bought her a Kershaw Chive, with the titanium oxide coating. Pretty knife, and a sharp little devil.
