    Most of the knives I own are spear points so that's how I voted. Clip points run a close second.

    If you do work that requires different blade shapes you really can't have a favorite. The task should dictate the shape.

    I anticipate that Drop Point will get the most votes. I forgot to include Tanto. Sorry about that.

    Mild clip point. About 1/4 chord point drop and 1/4 blade length back. Best combination of slicing, precision work, and piercing.
    Sheepsfoot/Coping. Best heavy use sawing, scraping, and chopping blade. Compliments the clip point strengths and weaknesses.

    I love the modified clip/drop point on my para 2. I voted serrated because it is normally accompanied by a full SE delica.

    Voted clip point because it is the style I do lean toward the most.
    But my favorite will always be dagger.
