That's hard to say, and ever changing. But today, based on my own collection, I'd say, in no particular order...

Large Persian
Paramilitary 2
Lum Tanto folder
Chokwe
Manix 2 (FFG sprint versions)

Of course this is subject to change.
:D :spyder:

Well, if number of "users" owned and frequency of carry are any indicator, then my "top three" would have to be:

1. Kiwi
2. Stretch
3. C83 Schempp Persian

Bunch of other designs I like and collect, but none where I have more than one or two users and those only rarely get carried.
