Most favorite? Least favorite?
Oh boy, Peter, that's tough to answer! I don't have a single ultimate favorite, but each one speaks to me in some way. For example:
The HAP40 Endura I value as my first special Spydie, and it was a present from the wife.
The smooth green G10 Native is really well made and it's green! It's really enjoyable, but I'm a bit bored with back locks. They're really good locks, but I prefer first CBBL and then compression locks.
The Caly 3 is the most imperfect knife I have, but I just don't hate it. In fact, I kind of like it.
The S110V Manix LW was a present to myself after I finished college (finally, after the Navy intermission). This one started my CBBL love affair...
The PITS is a really cool design in a really neat titanium handle, and the K390 Urban is just a fun little knife, but I don't need small slippies. I have these for jurisdiction restrictions I may come across in the future.
The Cruwear Para 3 is my most enjoyable and most carried knife, but it sometimes gets lock stick.
The Rex 45 PM2 is a larger orange version of my Para 3, so that's really exciting! I'm considering swapping the Cruwear blade into this orange handle.
I don't like the DLC Manix 2, because the DLC increases friction through stuff being cut. It's a great knife otherwise, but the DLC is not my thing.
I haven't chosen which would be the only knife i would keep forever, but the leading contenders are the Cruwear Para 3, smooth green Native, Burnt Orange Cruwear PM2 (doesn't exist yet), Natural G10 M4 Manix, and S110V Manix LW.
