    You could say it is Ti ;-)

    If I could only have one it would be the left handed spyderco military simply because a blade that size with such a precise tip is so useful for pretty much any task I put it through.

    Yes, it is Ti frame lock with a carbadized Ti blade and G-10 for the top portion of the frame. I don't believe any of the misc hardware, such as clip, stop pin, etc. is anything but Ti. Most of WT's knives are that way.

    I will add that, ergonomically, this is my favorite knife. The front portion of the G-10 frame has a choil for the index finger and the curves in the frame are just right to accommodate the rest of my hand. The arc ridges provide a very secure grip.

    It is a large knife, almost as large as my WT RC, which is huge. The WT SSF I have is much smaller.

    Mine is new and unused. A collector picked it up at the recent Las Vegas knife event and decided to pass it on. Several online knife stores currently have or have recently had them for $625 which is slightly more than what I paid.

    I really don't own anything like that lol

    I guess the closest thing is my ESEE 4.

    EDIT: On a second thought, even though it's not quite as versatile, I think if I really could only keep one knife it'd be a Cadet.

    Easy. Wenger SAK, Trout Model - no longer in production. It had the most features I could afford at the time including a fish scaler, lol. I've never scaled fish with it, but I have used it as a saw. In hindsights, I wish that particular feature was a pair of scissors like in the Wenger Teton.

    I bought it with my own money when I was in the third grade having been "inspired" by MacGyver. I'm now 31, and I've carried it near daily since then. Through school, college, and into the workforce it's been in my pocket ready to help out when needed. I've grown very attached to it, obviously, and I'd give up every other bladed object I have to keep it.

    My answer is going to be a bit different.

    It would have to be my Gen. 4 Spyderco Endura, plain-edge, w/ grey FRN handle.

    Very first knife I purchased after finding out the garbage that Manhattan D.A. Vance was pulling in my neck of the woods regarding one-handers that lock in the open position. You can't get such knives in stores in NYC, and Sal over at Spyderco knives now refuses to ship direct to NYC. (Can't really blame him for that.)

    So, I bought mine online as basically a middle finger to that ambitious scumbag in Manhattan who became delusional enough to think himself some sort of dictator instead of a Public Servant.

    Similar choice for me... Victorinox Tinker. Bought it when I was 13 after my first paycheck from the local hardware store.

    At this point I'm torn between my Sage 1 and PM2s. I think I'll go with Sage 1 as it carries better/deeper but this will probably change to the Paramilitary 2 in a few days when I get my STR clips. Of course if and when the Sage gets a compression lock... that'll be the one!

    Either way if I can only have one knife I'm getting a sick :censored: sword!!!

    i don't think i could do this. i have knives that i don't really care about and would trade off or sell but i have a hand full that i refuse to get rid of. my cold steel voyager is my go to EDC but i like my ti-lite for when i'm out at night but i also have knives with sentimental value so i couldn't narrow it to just one

    For usefulness- my spyderco delica.
    For sentimentality- an old Akbar scout knife my dad gave me.
