Rotate around 5 at a time. Currently:

2015 forum native
Red SE Delica (blade swap)
Ouroboros
Orange Hap40 Delica

After a few months of this rotation I’ll go to the storage and swap out a few. An FRN Delica will always be in the rotation.

Just curious how man knives you guys rotate with and what do you rotate?

Bad news, my friend. It's always "just one more."

It seems like there is a never ending stream of new releases I _need_ to try out and work into the rotation.

Like most here I have no shortage of knife to carry but I tend to reach for a Military or Stretch.

Of the three Militaries I currently have my Digi Cam S30V sees most pocket. :)

I always carry a byrd rescue 2.

At work, I rotate s110v pm2, s110v military, and XHP Cold Steel Recon 1.

Off days, cruwear pm2 and m4 pm2.

I want the Native Chief more than anything. Possibly picking up a Resilience in the future, a Shaman sprint, something in 4v, and maybe one day a k390 police 4. There are some others I want that I'm forgetting. All my knives see use or they get sold.
CRUWEAR NATION!

Patiently awaiting: REX 121, 15V, HAP72, and more Maxamet!
NATIVE CHIEF!!
Cruwear or 4v Shaman!
PARAMILITARY 2 XL!! <--- serious

Well I just bought my first real knife, a Tenacious about a week ago. I liked it so much, I purchased a Spyderco Paramilitary 2 Blurple S110V from BladeHQ it will be here tomorrow, or Saturday in the mail.

I’m most likely going to order my 3rd in a few days. I dunno, I may not keep the Tenacious in rotation. It gets dull pretty quick, and it requires constant sharpening.

I always carry a Dragonfly, since it came out the Hawkbill Dragonfly is the one I carry the most. I kind of feel bad how much I neglect my other 4 Dflys.

Besides the Dfly I usually carry one of 3 natives (fluted cf s90v, jade M4, LW Maxamet) or one of three Para 3's (Maxamet, M390, Rex45).

I also mix in the Tasman 2, Super Blue Delica, and Hap 40 Wharndelica.

Less often I carry my Blurple PM2. The rest get taken out only on special occasions.

Lately I've really taken to carrying the Shaman, great knife.
Carrying 3 knives is perfectly normal :D

I carry every knife I own. I get into ruts with types of knives though. Lately I've been all about lightweight. It's a phase though. For the best few months I've rotated between the hap40 delica and the s90v orange native 5 lw. I've had the SE delica wharncliffe with me everyday. At work I carry the SE wharny delica plus either the rhino or a gec. As it cools down I'll switch back to heftier. Next month I'm getting the Brouwer and I'll probably carry the g10 s110v native 5 and maybe my cru wear pm2 .
Most used Spydies: s30v Pm2, SE Jazz Delica, SE Pacific Salt.

Most used lately: SE Jazz Delica, Hap 40 Delica, Rheinhold Rhino, S90v Native 5 LW

I most often find myself carrying a Lil' Native or Para 3, but I just got a deep carry clip for my Domino so that will probably make the rotation too.

Weekday rotation is in transition- it was 10 knives (8 Spyderco and 2 others) but I am cutting it back to hopefully 7 Spyderco and maybe 1 other. The 6 established members are 1 Manix 2 XL, 2 Manix 2 LW (S90V and S110V) and 3 PM2s (1 S110V and 2 M4). The one that I want to add is another PM2 M4.

My weekend carry is typically either a Manix 2 M4 or a Military M4. I have a Manix 2 Cruwear and a Military Cruwear as backups.

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.
Please tell us the nature of your modifications to the PM2’s. I love mine, but a S110V Manix LW waved by a friend kicked it out of my pocket.

My main rotation consists of:

CPM S110V Military
Native 5 Maxamet
CPM M4 Advocate
Calypso Jr Super Blue

Plus:
Any of my 4 Manbugs

Not included is my Pacific Salt SE. Since I have this clipped IWB every day it doesn't ever get rotated with anything else.

About 20-30 are in the regular rotation.

Millies, Technos, C22, Bowie and Chef get the most pocket time, but I like to mix it up and feel bad for knives that aren't in regular use :o

Ooh! Those handles are very handsome. I like the look of the blue hardware, too. Thanks for replying.

most days it's either a Pacific Salt, Spyderhawk or Tasman Salt
Most other Spydies (13 more) are much more rarely carried

... 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”.
Exactly describes my rotation. Pink Native 5 this month, but two large SpydiePacks full of users plus a couple floating around the room. I always carry two clipits (right front pocket, left front pocket) and when I have a coin pocket, a Ladybug or Manbug also gets carried.
