Man, that's a tough one. These are the knives that made the cut, so I kinda love them all. But if I had to narrow it down to just one, it would probably be the elementum. Silky smooth action, sharp d2 blade, and dat micarta. It wouldn't seem out of place in a dressy workplace, but it's not to pretentious for a hike. And at $50, it wouldn't hurt too much if I lost it.Very nice!
I find the Opinel good for apples and string cutting and that's about it. Love it though...
Of the above, what's your favorite...?
Love it. Great photo, too. Do you still have the cordura webbing sheath that the plastic sheath clips into? I still have mine from '87, or so, that was anodized black . Wore it on my backpack strap for a few years.
Not that I could find, I got it from my dad and he probably put it away somewhere.Love it. Great photo, too. Do you still have the cordura webbing sheath that the plastic sheath clips into? I still have mine from '87, or so, that was anodized black . Wore it on my backpack strap for a few years.
Love the Leek. Open assist, light, small and sharp. A joy to sharpen too because no weird curves in the blade. I beat the crap out of mine.My newest knife, lol.
Always had a knife in my car, go bag, range bag, etc, but a few weeks ago I needed one and thought, "I should really carry a pocket knife".
That started a marathon of Nick Shabazz videos, several orders from White Mountain Knives, camping out on r/knife_swap, and my wife and kids rolling their eyes at the amount if small packages the mailman dropped off.
The two at the top I owned before this madness, and I've returned/sold 6 others. Currently have a Spyderco Para 3 LW on the way .

knife, but new to me; another for the collection!
just imported this Japanese Naginata naoshi from i believe the Nanbokucho period (1334-1393)
Re-purposed, cut down pole arm, now in wakizashi form
Not the best picture at all!!
Not in the best shape, but not bad for over 600 years old
21.7 inch cutting edge
The worst I can say about it is that it's not much fun to flip open, but if you read up on it that's not what they designed it for.
ohhhh man, I bought one of these for my tacklebox probably back in 1993 or so, talk about a walk back down memory lane. I found it again recently, it had a few rust spots but I cleaned it up and have forgotten where I put it now. I might just go looking for it now.
