    That's three knives... Did you read the topic of this thread?

    I'd choose a BM 558 - Doug Ritter Mini Grip. It's blade geometry and the overall size are perfect for me. I'd have to put new scales on it, a set of Wilkins Grips, probably.

    I'll stick to the knives I truely know. So no fantasy or day dreaming, simply trough experience I'll pick up my;

    Benchmade 610 Rukus

    -S30V Drop point
    -G10 + Macarta scales
    -Overall more than 10"
    -Smooth 1hand opener
    -Axis Lock

    There are so many fantastic folders for EDC and/or tough jobs that there is no such thing as 'the perfect knife'. But this one comes close.

    My JW Smith Wharncliffe.... A perfect knife with balance and one hand ease. My Crawford would be next in line.

    It's a tough choice between my three favorite workhorse knives: tied for second place would be my 3.5 inch Gen. 3 XM-18 flipper along with my Strider SMF spear point. However first has got to go to my Emerson plain edge HD-7. That knife is so easy to maintain, easy to take apart and clean, easy to sharpen and incredibly useful. Good question and answers btw...this post had me going through all the old knives I've owned in my head.

    Yeah I read the topic. I'm not blind. I put an "or" inbetween my 3 choices not an "and". I see what you mean though, but what I meant is each knife to me can be worked at the same caliber in my opinion. Although some may think differently, thats just how I see it.

    I'll choose one. My fault.

    I think I would select a Spyderco Paramilitary as my one knife.

    I really like the Spyderco Endura 4, sharpened with 2 Japanese Water Stones the way Murray Carter sharpens, man that fellow can sure enough sharpen a knife.
