The big knife. Right rear pocket usually is one of 2 Pm2’s, 2 Titanium Millie’s, a Spydiechef, or a Superleaf. The small knife, watch pocket is a DF2, a Chapparal, or one of several other brands. Today it’s the Chap and my S 110V PM2.

Just two: Cutlery Shoppe Exclusive Endura 4 and 52100 PM2. However, I live/work in San Francisco so both of those are too big. I want to learn to free hand sharpen, so I am carrying around a cheap knife that is less than 3 inches. Once I am comfortable with sharpening, I'll look into getting another Spyderco for my daily carry.

My norm is a paring of BBS m390 para3 clipped in right pocket with a se df2 hb jangling with my keys in bottom of same. The df2 is the constant where I'll swap out any 1 of 15 or so spydies.

It’s nice to have (2) Spyderco knives now. I carry my Tenacious, and PM2 S110V. I started my new job today, and there is so much cutting involved it’s crazy. Sometimes an hour or two hours straight of just opening boxes, or cutting plastic wrap. My poor little Tenacious was dull by lunch time. My PM2 in S110v, nothing seems to phase it so far. I had to bring the edge back tonight on my tenacious on the bottom of a ceramic plate when I got home.

I guess I rotate about ten or so in and out. Three versions of the military- Ti, PE 440v, S110v. A PM1 in D2 and a P3 in S110v. Then another five versions of the calypso. C54 SE, caly 3 g10 and carbon fiber, a super blue jr and a ukpk. I guess you can see which models I gravitate to.

I rotate between Rex45 para3, BBS M390 para3, BHQ DLC M4 para3, or Cutlery Shoppe DLC S90v native. Lately its mostly been the Rex45 and M390 with the native getting carried more on the weekends.

Just curious how man knives you guys rotate with and what do you rotate?

I’m thinking I need a few more Spydies!

I rotate more between different examples of the same model than between different models. So, most days, I could be carrying any one of these Kiwis in my coin pocket...

That's an incredible collection of beautiful knives! Did the Kiwis come with all those different handles or are they custom?

I used to have a huge EDC rotation, but I am trying to get down to one for EDC. For the past 6 months or so I have narrowed it down to these two:

Military CF/Ti S90V
Manix 2 Blue Lightweight BD1

I keep switching back and forth between my PM2 and the DLC Shaman. I recently been carrying the later and almost forgot how good it feels in hand / in the pocket. But now that I've finished servicing my paramilitary 2, oiled the washers, clean in between she's back in the pocket.... Now got to give the Shaman the same treatment <.<


When I want to change things up, I carry my Fortis from Viper Knives (Titanium Framelock, and M390).

I rotate between my Chap, Domino, and 2 PM2s mostly. I will periodically throw the Native 5 into the mix, but this hasn't happened almost at all since I got the Chap.

Lately I've really been liking the smaller knives. I've been going back and forth from the Para 3, Mantra, and Lil' Native. I don't really need a huge blade, so it's nice being able to carry something like the Mantra or Lil' Native that I barely even notice in my pocket, but still comes in handy at work.

Added a plainedged Endura 3 to my EDC rotation alongside my ultimate favorite ATS-55 Rescue, although I guess it doesn't really count as rotation if I just carry both of them all the time and don't rotate anything out? Am enjoying both of them too much right now to leave either of them at home~

75 of the same knife. Wow! Wouldn’t mind having that quantity in PM2’s!
