My 2 faves of my 20+ knives are the fixed blade SOG Tigershark and the Spyderco Howard Viele folder. The latter is the prettiest and perhaps sharpest knife I've ever come across. I must, however, award the Civilian an honorable mention.

O.K. here I go :

Fixed blade : I have a chinese "knock-off"
of the old Black Jack "High-
-land" dirk.

Tactical : I'd have to say the Spyderco
"Merlin", with that vicious
"hook" !

Working : My C 29BK "Cricket"

Dress : The "Vesuvius"

Classical : Should be the Spyderco
"Worker" ( which I don't own ) so
I'll say my C 29BK "Cricket"

Fixed blade - Don't own one.
Tactical - Based on "the best defensive knife is the one you have on you all the time", it would have to be either the SS Delica or the Howard Viele.
Working Folder - Military or Standard, depending on where I'm working.
Dress folder - Howard Viele.
Classic - I would say the Standard, because to me it has the classic Spyderco shape.

I only have about 6 knives so far and they're all folders. My favorite. uh i say it almost every time I post it's My G10 Harpy. I use it all the time and carry it at work at home at the store everywhere. I switch out plain edged folders but I always carry my Harpy. Thanks Sal for the Harpy

AET- How "Sword and Shield" came to be is a long trek into my past. The official mascot of my high school was the Knight, and the school was very emphatic in teaching the virtues of honor, integrity, courage and inner strength.

I incorporated the Knight into my first screen name, and some variation has always appeared in the name. S & S seemed appropriate for a cutlery forum, while still keeping the Knight theme.

Keepin' it real...real sharp, that is.

I always have a Swiss Army Knife on me. Usually either my CyberTool 34 (office) or Craftsman (weekends). My supplemental blade is either my FRN Dragonfly, FRN Cricket, or Kershaw Silver Spur.
