Impossible task.
I have trouble to choose only one knife to carry daily at this time. And even if I choose, I am sure that Sal will make something better in the future. So why should I limit myself.
I love my Natives, Persian, Calys and Jester. But I am looking forward to see Shaman and many others.

So much love for the Para 2, and they are coming back in stock now.

Must resist buying one until a nice exclusive or sprint comes out. Not a big willpower kind of a guy when it come to these kind of things though.
On my radar: 110V Military, Police 4 and some sweet Rex 45 Military action.

Newest Spydies: S90v Ti Military, Pacific Salt and a special Kiwi.

I am very surprised nobody has mentioned the Gayle Bradley folder. No, it's not stainless, but I've had zero issues with rusting, and it's easy to get a ridiculously sharp edge on it. The build quality is off the charts. EVERYTIME I pull it out of the safe to carry it I can't help to admire the level of fit and finish it shows.

I'll probably spend most of my future in an office unfortunately so I could probably go with a chaparral 1

I almost picked the GB, but the weight is a big turn off for me.

Amazing knife! If the thread said two knives, it would be a toss up between the south fork and Bradley to pair with the chaparral

Not a bad choice at all!
If your parting with your knives, what are you doing with the others?

Is the world going to carry on as it is now? ....I'll go with the M390 PM2. Perfect all around steel in a tough, comfortable package.

Is this the apocalypse? ...Give me a Serrata. Zombie smashing, door prying, wood chopping heft, with classic Spydie sensibility and quality.

it will do everything from large scale to detail work and i can sharpen s30v. I'm not so great at sharpening some of the tougher steels.
I know I already said so but..........

Simple it would be my first, C05 - Economy. It's been in my pocket since 1987. It been around the world, blown up an lost for a month in Iraq (I knew where but couldn't go back after it at the time). It road as a backup for a few years when I got my C65S. But the C65S failed, Sal will get it soon to see if she can be saved.

I have others, but the C05 was my first. Nothing after 27 years has really replaced her. Just a little side fling here an there :)
Always looking for the right one :)

Simple. The original Starmate. I'm talking about superior ergos combined with CPM 440V goodness in a 60/40 combo-edge. :D Can it get much better than this? ;)

Right now it's gonna be the Techno. :cool:

If I could have one and only one, the A.T.R. would be it.

Military CPM S90V w/ Carbon fiber scales. Although I would greatly miss the pair of Crickets that hold my keys up day in and day out without complaint.
