I carried a PE aluminum Bob T Jr (C19P) for a while ... quite rare ... I recently gave it to a friend. At the moment I'm carrying a Moki Jess Horn, which is identical to the Spyderco C27P, apart from the stamping on the blade.
In my rotation is also a Spyderco Mouse, a blue ZDP Delica and a carbon fiber Delica. All worn, sharpened and scratched :) . If I were to get my hands on a carbon fiber walker, I would for sure carry it also.

I used to carry a Shabaria.

As to why I don't anymore ... don't get me started; has to do with legislation.

Large Persian - somewhat of a rarity these days.
Dyad Jr Micarta - also somewhat rare I hear.
Swick - with only 480 out there, that's pretty "grail-ish"

Let me see...

Micarta C39 Dyad Jr. in my watch pocket
C44 Dyad in my RF pocket
C50P Centofante II next to my wallet
C54BMP and/or C54BMS Calypso clipped in my waistband
C07S Police in coated and uncoated aluminum get thrown in my jacket pockets pretty regularly of late.
Then there's the blue Yojimbo I use for a drywall knife when I'm not using my S90V Military instead.
The Toad and Mouse don't get carried much, but they've both been used in the past.

I've been carrying a Paramilitary because I just can't bring myself to regularly carry the Lil' Temp for fear of losing or damanging it.

Plain edge 440V Gunting (carried just about anytime I am not wearing a business suit--this one has been back to the Spyderco Restoration Spa once, due to the fact that I beat the crap out of it)

Black Yojimbo (when I feel like carrying it :D )

VG10 Spyderfly (one of the first produced and before the switch in steel--in my "go" or "tactical" vest) [I'm a LEO, so did not have to send in my 'flies when Spyderco asked that they be returned after the court settlement in regard to the ICE case]

Green Lum Chinese (carried and worked with to the point that I am not too pleased with the way that the liner lock is engaging now, due to wear and some of the martial arts related quick openings and other abuse I heaped on the knife--not the knife's design or fit and finish. It is honorably semi-retired now).

Not exactly "grails," but I have seen quite a few people looking for them now:

Kris (engraved with Albo Kali Silat logo on the bolsters) (carried a lot :D )

Foliage Green CPMD2 Military (carried a lot when I am in a business suit)

SPOT with Micarta scales, plain edge (carried quite a bit when I was in Agent or SWAT mode, but not much now that I am in Supervisor mode and also have determined that I don't, in general, like neck carry that much).

While not exactly a "holy grail" I do occasionally bring my 440V PE Millie with bead-blasted clip out of the box on rare occasions. I guess I kind of consider it a "grail" to me because it has a lot of sentimental value.

1. C83 Large Persian - almost all the time
2. Kopa Cocobolo - almost all the time in conjunction with the above :)
3. Kopa Black Micarta - in rotation with the Cocobolo above
4. Blue Delica 4 ZDP - some consider this to be a grail or a rare piece.

As I am currently rationalising my collection, I think a few more 'grails' will be added to my EDC 'bucket' (the drawer runeth over :D :P
