    If you could have ONLY ONE folding knife what would it be? Size, brand, blade type, blade steel, handle material, etc is all up to you.

    For me it would be close between a Benchmade Griptilian BM550HG or a Spyderco Native FRN. I would probably have to go with the Spyderco though.




    Moderators: If there is a similar thread please let me know. I searched and didn't see one.

    These types of threads don't really make that much sense to me, but what the heck.

    I'll say Spyderco Delica 4 PE. (Happens to be my EDC knife. What a coincidence ;)).

    Spyderco Delica4 PE.

    Just has a quality feel to it. Blade size is adequate, easy to open,
    light to carry, very sharp, nice satin finish on the blade. I like
    the thick leaf design of the blade.

    CLB's Wharcom or Keycom would run a close second. They're
    very people friendly, and so small and easy to carry that there's
    no reason to ever be without one. Keycom is especially sharp,
    easy to grip and use, and has a sturdy clip to boot.

    Honorable mention also goes to the Spyderco Dragonfly.
    It's like having a minaiture Delica. To me, anyway.

    I've never tried some of the more expensive folders
    so I can't give an opinion.

    But if someone gave me a nice Hinderer or William Henry
    I wouldn't turn them down.

    ;D

    Hinderer XM-18 for me I think, although I love the Caly 3 design so much. It just feels right.

    Benchmade Mini Grip .... You pick your own blade style. This is a no doubter.

    It helps people see what others look at as their favorites. I like to see what others are carrying. Then check it out and if I like something add it to my list.

    Another possibility for me would be the SAK Trekker. Although that is a multi knife.

    Sheeeesh what an unfair question. I guess I'd go for the spyderco military...although I love the Strider AR. Don't have one or ever handled one, so I don't know, personally, how well it would perform daily tasks...

    Probably an SAK, a Pioneer, Swiss Champ, something like that. I know it is not as fancy as a Sebenza, but it is probably more useful. Plus if I lose it or break it I won't cry.

    Ontario RAT 1 for me.

    Excellent in both fine and heavy cutting tasks. Solid as a rock.

    I've already gained major interest in the Delica 4 Wave. I just wish it was S30V steel, but VG-10 is nothing to be ashamed of.
