For me, it would be the Techno. While it is smaller than I would ideally prefer, I've yet to encounter any cutting task in the past 6 months it couldn't handle. Small enough to carry everywhere without ever feeling under-knifed makes for a pretty good "1 knife".

Just ducttape them together and call it a hybrid multitool

Manbug...I love many models that have already been mentioned above, but the Mighty Mite BRG ZDP Manbug handles 99.3% of tasks I run into on a daily basis. It's sheeple friendly, and it's size and weight is negligible to the point of nothingness. What makes :spyder: so great is that they provide highly specialized tools ( eg. Whale rescue blade ) along with great line of generalized tools (eg. Delica, Endura, Manbug ). And they craft them with equal parts quality, egros, and integrity...Cheers to you :spyder: crew! :)

For me, the Breeden Rescue is a great general purpose knife.

It feels much better in hand that you would think. The blade is large enough, VG10, and the lack of a point, keeps the co-workers from getting worked up.

It really is a great knife.

If I wasn't worried about size in the workplace, the Military would win hands down.

I find both the Sage 1 and 2 to be just about perfect in every regard.

Really if I had to pick, a d4 or the stretch in frn would do. I have a lot of delicas I don't carry but its so well suited to almost any task that I would be satisfied with it for daily use. It is refined without being too pretty to use and rugged enough to hold up to anything I could throw at it. Same could be said for a Salt 1.
So many knives, so few pockets... :)

My first Spyderco was an Endura G10. I like my other Spydercos, but if I had to give up all but one, I would probably keep the Endura.

Para2 plain & simple. I have other knives I own and still others I don't own that I've held/fondled, but none can top the Para2 in the "all-arounder" category.

I guess I mean I need less stress and this adds to it lol. Waiting for a Yojimbo 2 to get in stock is stressful enough!

For a true allrounder, I'd probably go with my Paramilitary 2 as well - probably my S90V CF version.

for some reason I am not surprised :)
I really like to see such variety in our favorite knives, meaning that so many models can stand alone and find their way to our hands and hearts.
