100% my Spyderco Southard. Great user, great ergos, great build quality, and great steel.

Also immense personal meaning, but that's gravy.

Current S110V PM2. Maybe be replaced by my future all black S90V Yo2.

Native 5 LW in S35VN. IMHO, it's one of the best values in an EDC knife. It's USA made, with a premium blade steel, has great ergonomics, and it can be disassembled for cleaning and maintinence by the owner unlike another popular Spyderco, the Manix 2 LW.
Delica 4 Saber Grind, Manix 2 G10, Native 5 LW, Delica 4 FFG, Native 5 G10, Manix 2 Back Lock, Endura 4 FFG, Para 3, Raffir Noble Chaparral... I'm sure more to come.

I'm guessing I'd keep a recently made Hap 40 Endura. That's because there isn't a Cruwear Endura.

Tough choice, but I'll probably pick an all-rounder like the Cruwear PM2.

Tenacious, because you always remember your first.
Tenacious Black Blade---Resilience---Persistence---Ambitious---Cara Cara 2---Hawkbill ---Manbug ---Tenacious Full SpyderEdge---Raven 2---Robin2---Matriarch 2

I'm only using black until Spyderco comes out with something darker.

My ZDP 189 Endura seems to keep finding its way back into my pocket regardless of whatever else I buy.

See, that's the thing, there weren't any caveats or scenario conditions given. My default answer would be based on 'what do I carry all the time now that does anything I need it to in my daily tasks?' which would be my K390 Urban. But that's not what I'd pick for 'stranded on a desert island' or 'zombie apocalypse' or even 'routine backpacking trip', but if that's how you interpret the question it's gonna impact your answer. For most things with any "survival' attributes I guess it'd have to be an aqua salt or a rock salt.

I'm like Ken on this one^^ If the aliens took over and made us surrender all but one (a topic I once posted :) ), I'd keep my beloved carbon fiber S90V Manix 2 XL which fits my hand like no other. The runner up in that case would be one of my millies and I'm glad I don't have to choose which one right now. But for the current situation I think I'd take the one I chose in the thread about the one knife you would take on an around the world trip, a Manix 2 S90V carbon fiber (I love these threads! :p ).

I don't have that exact knife, so choosing from what I have now it would be between my smooth CF Cruwear M2, Blurple S110V, or maybe I'd graft my new Orange Lightweight S90V blade into my old heavy wt M2 handle, using the OP's techniques from another thread :D
viewtopic.php?f=2&t=75369&p=1166225

But, to digress more, though I've always strongly favored the CF or G-10 M2s over the lightweights and never thought I'd buy an orange knife (around here in this part of 'bama we usually refer to orange as "that color"--re: football), my Orange S90V M2 hasn't left my pocket (even pajamas) since I bought it, so I may not be able to bring myself to do the blade swap.

This is a cruel question!

Of my own collection, my PITS, I think, as it's not too small, not too big, legal carry here, and interesting.

However, I would first have plenty of fun sifting through all the Spydies you all will have been made to discard, so may change my mind.

I just got a Slysz Bowie and it has kicked everything out of my pocket. This may be because I am having a "honeymoon" period with my new knife, but I really don't see how anything can come to replace the Slysz Bowie. On a related note, my Southard is just sitting in a drawer. Poor guy.

Nice to see all the admiration for the Manix 2. That would be my choice as well, probably in S110V.

People sometimes complain they can't close it one handed. This has always perplexed me. My concern is getting the knife open one handed. Once the job is done I am in no great hurry to get the knife closed.

It would be the 204P Millie for me. But I would be in mourning for my Hap40 Stretch. And my beloved Southfork. And...and...
