    Me?

    Endura in VG-10
    Griptilian in 154CM or whatever it is that it's called
    Both of my Case mini-trappers

    And, oddly enough, my brand new Buck Vantage. We will see if it stands the test of time, but my initial day of carrying it has been extraordinarily impressive. I bought the cheaper model just to see if I liked it, and I will be ordering the S30V model forthwith. I really, really like that knife a lot though I have to temper my opinion since it has only been a day. Plus, I don't think anything will ever take down the Endura as my all time favorite knife unless it happens to be another Spyderco.

    Anyway, I have about 15 or so other knives, of which I occasionally carry one or two, but those first three knives I listed are basically always in the rotation simply because I like them so much. I have actually just stashed one of my case knives at work (the regular trapper) so I never have to worry about it, and the other (2007 Wharncliffe Trapper) I have started treating as something of a "BBQ Knife". It will be getting shipped off to this guy on Bladeforums that is a sharpening deity. This guy can slice standing toilet paper cleanly, and by Odin, I want to own a knife that sharp.

    Being a city boy my favorite knives are all folders. I have a few that I value highly -- a Spyderco Military, a CRK Sebenza, and a Microtech LCC. But if I had to name a favorite it would probably be this one.

    Harvey king custom knives. Well I had 4 but now only three. My buddy used the black ash handled knife and placed it on the bumper of his truck so he would remember to give it back to me. Well it now lives along side the road somewhere. Anyway best knives I have ever owned.

    About in this order:

    Spyderco Native S30V
    Shane Justice Soldier's Knife (made especially for me)
    HI WWII 16.5" Kuk
    John Greco coffin-handled bowie
    HI 19" Crow bowie

    Pic


    L to r: Crow, WWII, Greco, Justice, Spyderco

    This is also a fairly complete battery, with a folder, all-purpose/combat fixed blade, large outdoor knife/fighter, dedicated fighter, and large fighter/outdoor knife.

    If I could only have one knife, it would be my Justice, since it's big and sturdy enough to handle practically anything in a pinch, but small enough to even conceal, if I had to. If I had two knives, my Native and any of the other knives except my Greco would work great.

    The 2 that I favor the most (they get the most pocket time) is my CRK Regular Sebenza & Hinderer XM-18 flipper.

    Right now my favorites are the ones I am making, but my EDC is a $13 truckstop special that has ridden on my hip for about 7 years now. Not fancy or expensive, but easy to sharpen and has always done what I have asked of it...

    1. Benchmade Griptilian - Great feeling in the hand, perfect for EDC, but still quick to open and close, nice looks and steel
    2. Benchmade Mini-Griptilian - Same as the Griptilian, just not as much to love
    3. Al Mar Eagle Ultralight - Excellent EDC, Scary sharp, great for cutting food, but not really a hard use knife, I like it for picnics
    4. Case Barehead Slimline Trapper CV - Nice gentleman's knife, good for the office setting
    5. CRKT M16 Zytel - Great for when I know I'm going to abuse the knife, I bought a couple of them off A. G. Russell for a little less than $25 a piece, and they are my go-to knives when I know I'll be trying to do something stupid like use it as a pry bar or cut bailing wire.

    Stephan Fowler hand forged W2 13" dagger with Damascus fittings and Amboyna burl handle
    [​IMG]

    Top is a 10"x2"x 1/4" O1 Mad Dog Sitka with Mojave green handle and glowing temper line - my main outdoor knife
    Then A Mad Dog Rezine O1 steel 9" x 1.25"x 1/4" Glowing temper line- my main slaughter knife
    then a 7" Mad Dog VooDoo Hound 3/16" O1 fighter that is light as a feather and all razor edges- I wear it on my war belt.
    Bottom knife is a Ceramic Mirage x Proto with green ion fused coating, a one of a kind item my son covets for his spectroanaylis lab and he may get it soon.

    ^That guy isn't joking about vorpal blades.

    My fav is my blue scale FFG endura. I also like my plain gen 4 endura too, and really like my 2 HI kuks. For practical purposes and just sheer brick house sturdiness my 1.5lb 12" Ang khola is neat. For a fighter the 19" chitlangi can also do nice utility work. But I'm not afraid to beat up the ang...the chit is scratched but I don't care. But I do still take a little bit better care of it since it's fragile and would take less to screw up.

    Benchmade 943 or 556 followed by a Spyderco Delica 4.

    I'm a simple man.

    Or maybe the Benchmade Bone Collector in a D2 when life is more complex..

    My favorite carry knives:

    1) Benchmade 910 Styker - old PE 154CM version
    2) Spyderco 'Dodo' PE
    3) Kershaw Leek
    4) SOG Twitch II

    I mourn that old stryker terribly... I'm sure its floating around the house somehwere, but my efforts to find it are in vain.

    I have a Randall model 18 attack that was carried by a friend who served in Vietnam. It has the Johnson rough back sheath. It is my favorite although it does show some wear from him using it in the field.
