    Spyderco
    Mora
    CRKT
    Benchmade (have to give props for the mini grip and having production knives in M390)


    Surprised there's so little love for Mora here. Best price/function value in a blade I've found.

    I like most Spyderco knives. I cant say that about any other production folding knife company.

    Individual knives that I like from other companies include the CRK Sebenza 25, Benchmade 710, Cold Steel Tri-Ad recon one, and Microtech Socom Delta.

    1.) spyderco of course
    2.) Victorinox SAK
    3.) letherman multitool
    4.) kershaw/ cold steel
    5.) benchmade I only have one and I'm not that big of a fan of it so it's usually in the suit case for when I travel, so if I loose it to TSA or anything I'm not to heart broken over it.

    The knives I carry are:

    Spyderco Caly 3.5
    Case Drop Point Russlock both one hand openers

    The knives I collect:

    Case Canoe, Sway back Jack and Gent, 087 Pen and Jack, Drop Point Russlock. The Drop Point Russlock will perform any task you need a knife to do from cleaning under your nails to skinning a buck. I wish Spyderco made something with a blade like that.

    1-Spyderco
    2-Hattori - I only own kitchen knife from him but damn the nice knife!
    3-Zero Tolerance

    And in the "I crave to get one but won't ever be able to afford one" category:
    1 - Yuna Knife (For the look, ergonomics, build quality, awesomeness, steel quality)
    2 - William Henry (For the look, built quality, steel quality and heat treatment)
    Owned : Broken tip ZDP-189 Endura, Mule Team 18, Mr Itou R2 180mm Gyoto, Super Blue Stretch, Super Blue Ladybug
    In the wish list model list: Southard, *Yuna Qi 4.1 in K390*, ZDP-189 Ladybug, Chaparral, any AEB-L Sal would make into a folder!

    Spyderco does and can fit any need I have.

    2. Benchmade, I have a mini grip cabelas exclusive in D2 that is a pleasure to use.

    3. ESEE for fixed blades but I think I just need to get a Fixed Spydie and this would change.
    Next Spyderco: Worker Sprint, Lightweight Manix 2 S110V

    1. Spyderco hands-down winner for folder innovation, egronomics, & utility
    2. Busse for fixed blade excellence...KaBar...more affordable 1095 honorable mention
    3. Case Tested XX for traditional slip joint folders like Dad used to carry...this is a beloved category for me...these type of tools first opened my eyes to the usefulness of an EDC knife...without them I would have never ventured into Spyderco.
    Have Kiwi, will travel...wire Paladin...Hotel Carlton, San Francisco
