certainly. In today world even one is OK. One of my Native5 will do the job, but why?
Can somebody here limit your self with
1. six tops (total, not each of six of :shirts, t-shirts, tank-tops, sweaters)
2. six pants (total, not each of : pants, slacks, jeans, shorts, sport shorts ...........)
You got an idea.

Easy
2x Pacific Salt 1 black/black ( boat doesn't leave the driveway without at least 2 )
2x Parra 3s ( cant believe these have pushed ParraM2s out but digging the reduced size )
1x Gayle Bradley 1s ( the other would sit around for too long ;) )
1x Pakkawood Delica ( one sweet looking knife )

Mnandi
Pacific Salt 1
Gayle Bradley 1
Would be my minimum

I could, but I wouldn't like it.

My choices would be:
Manix 2 Back Lock
Delica
Urban LW K390
Manbug/Ladybug

In fact, I could get by with just the Manix 2 BL and the Urban LW.

There is something to be said for partially serrated blades as you can have a plain edge for more precision and you can have the serrated part for cutting through rope or seat belts.

Well Roman, if I eliminated the Kiwi 4's, Kiwi 3's and all the duplicate Kiwis and Kiwi 2's, that would get me down to 68. :o :D

I think I could pair my Spyderco collection down to just 6

Military (too difficult to decide which steel)
Superblue Caly 3.5
K05 Small Utility Serrated
K08 Santoku
Manix 2 (again too difficult to decide which steel)

Well, I 'only' have 7. If one had to go, it would probably be the Manix.

I could certainly limit myself to carrying only 6 Spyderco's at any given time. :)
