Have a rotation for my rotation. Always have 6-20 in rotation. Lil temp 3, q ball, caly 3, a few para 3’s are always in there. Right now the others are a roc, delica warnie, double bevel, dodo, sage 2, jade lum Chinese, s110v ukpk.
Foundry and k390 urban will be back soon. Carried the rubicon last week but it’s back in the spider pac now.
I have 26 out of my collection in rotation (loosely speaking), not all are Spyderco's. Activity dictates choice of style and size. The Spyderco's are PM2, Advocate, GB2 and Military. Lately one of my favorite EDCs are a set of three highly modified PM2s. Hoping to add the Ikuchi to my rotation in the very near future.

For the past two months I have mostly carried my M4 Military, Pattada, Maxamet Native5LW and since October 1st I have carried a pink Native5LW everyday. I seem to be rotating less lately. Honestly, life has been too busy to put too much attention towards the hobby.
In the big picture I have probably 50-60 users that I consider to be “in the rotation”.

Also, do you think a kangaroo would eat a bowl of spagetti with sauce if someone offered it to them?
Just curious how man knives you guys rotate with and what do you rotate?
I’m thinking I need a few more Spydies!
What do you have so far?
Lately it's been mostly a Delica/Chaparral at the office, and PM2/Manix2/Military/Police4 elsewhere. Changes a lot though with all the new releases. I've been spending most of my time with the REX45 PM2, and tried to talk the Endura into a more serious relationship in the name of VTOKU2, but we're still trying to figure each other out.
I have had a lot (obviously less than a lot here). I'm down to one that i regularly pick up and put in my pocket, the carbon fiber/M4 pm2. I'd rather it have smooth micarta but it does everything i ask of it and demands more.
Maybe the micarta/cruwear shaman model will displace that. Or maybe it'll be too big, bulky, and heavy. I don't know. As of now, though, it's the m4 pm2 that totally reigns supreme and has knocked basically everything else out of any kind of contention.
I have two different situations, "office carry" (sub-2.5") and "outside office carry" (anything reasonable goes). For both, I have a small group of frequently carried knives, then a larger group that get carried occasionally but not as often as the others. In general I don't keep any knives that I don't carry at least once in a while.
For office carry there's a core group of two (One-Eyed Jack, Rhino). The V-Toku2 Meerkat, when it comes out, might push its way into this group.
For outside office carry the core group is a little more expansive. Besides the PM2 (in one of several variants) and the Southard, there are also several non-Spydies: the North Arm Skaha 2, the Sebenza, and a number of vintage Benchmades: the Tsunami (700), the AFCK (800), the Dark Star (880) and the Stryker (910). Albeit the AFCK is kind of an honorary Spydie ...
Generally I prefer nonserrated, noncoated blades. I still have some older partially serrated knives that I have sentimental attachment to, but I don't buy them these days except in unusual circumstances.
