Zero Tolerance. Hinderer, Rexford, Sinkevich (sp?)... Great collaborations, great quality.
Currently Reate for me! That may change as I try different knives in the future. Fantastic quality at an affordable price, the only downside is if you need new hardware or anything you have to get it sent all the way from china haha. Although, the owner named David is very friendly and uses express shipping. Essentially, my first Reate is the first knife that I have found no problems with. Seems like in every knife I have received from benchmade, spyderco, or ZT/Kershaw there has been atleast one thing that really bugged me (Even tho they are awesome companies that I have mad respect for).
Victorinox and Spyderco.
If I have to pick just one, then Victorinox (but I'd really miss my UKPK!).
Love my benchmade.
It's in my carry rotation 99% of the time
Benchmade is my favorite. AXIS lock, all knives made in USA, and their marketing isn't too ostentatious. also, excellent quality to price ratio
Spyderco, Kershaw / ZT , GEC , Victorinox, ProTech, Benchmade..... the list goes on but that is the bulk of it.
Kershaw, Spyderco, BM, Leatherman for MTs, and can't forget Opinel
I gotta say Spyderco.
That's tricky to answer for there are many factors in my decision. For instance, I can't argue the quality of a Buck and I love it, but the ones I love aren't designed for one-handed opening which for my needs is VERY IMPORTANT! I tried one-handed open one of their knives for hunting/skinning and that was a huge mistake. Won't do that again.
Quality I have to say my preference is the Benchmade's. I just think as an overall knife that is always what I tell people.
Want to save on cost and still get an above average knife then I would say Kershaw.
For light/thin carry then I would recommend Spyderco
Ease of sharpening and just being an over all classic you can't go wrong with a SAK especially now that they have one-handed openers (not sure when they started doing that but glad they did) and they are still to this day very well made.
So in the end to answer this question it really depends on what is your reason to buy it. If you just want to get something that looks cool then go with the Fury knives but quality isn't there with those knives but can't argue they always look cool!
Spyderco, Mora and Victorinox would be my bang for the buck favorites.
I really like browning and puma. They tend to fit my hands easier and they make me feel like I have more control over them. They also aren't too heavy or bulky.
If price and quality are a good balance I'm a fan of what ever

My EDCs for the majority of the time are Benchmade. I carry the only Kershaw I own on very few occasions. I've been tempted more times than I count to dip into some ZTs.
-Used by the actual Swiss Army. Extremely old/time tested company.
-The American soldiers all loved them in WWII.
-Way more usefulness than just a single blade
-Probably the most recognized brand on the planet. Can use anywhere with a significantly less chance of being questioned compared to single bladed folders.
-High polished softish steel. Easy to clean. Easy to sharpen. Harder to chip.
-Alox is extremely simple and durable. My Cadet should outlive me.
Victorinox and Lionsteel
Tops knives. Kershaw. And swiss army knives both wenger and victorinox. . Why to me they feel like the perfect extension of my hands. . I get the feeling pretty soon I'll be adding Tupper knife and tool to my list of favs
Leatherman. Superb quality and Great customer service. They also appear to be trying in other markets. (Tread)
Buck. Once again, great knife, great warranty, great service, and the sheaths have never seemed to get worse as a whole.
Chris Reeve Knives. For someone with--ahem!!!--a touch of knife OCD... there really is no better knife. Nothing in this life is perfect, but CRK products (specifically the Sebenza) consistently come about as close to perfection as one can reasonably expect from a purchased product.
ZT/ kershaw for me,... Love me some flippers and they seem to be as crazy about them as I am. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate the beauty of a good spy die or bench made, etc,... However, I have fine tuned what I like so much that I have severely limited myself. It is extremely much more exciting when I find one that fits my criteria.
