UKPK, only one I have so far, but it's great.
Stretch, still high on my list.

My collection does not have much FRN, but what I have shows me how ridiculous I was to avoid it in favor of G10 and CF.

Green ZDP189 Stretch
Yellow H1 Dragonfly

This is a tough call!

1. SB Endura
2. Burgundy Caly Jr. ZDP-189
3. Manbug

Very honorable mentions include the Pingo, Goddard (and I'm not a fan of Volcano grip FRN vs bidirectional), and UKPK. These blue cats are pretty too...

Thanks for the replies guys, this is very interesting. Deacon - I too would love to hear the story behind the ZDP stretch marked VG-10, did you get it at the VG-10 price? That sounds like a very interesting mix up

Blue has never been one of my favored colors but I love that shade for some reason.
