    I voted for Victorinox because I have had them since I was a child and the quality has always fascinated me. However, I currently also have a Spyderco Meerkat that has become my constant companion and also a Kershaw that I have become very fond of.

    Me thinks I'm doomed to never be able to decide... Benchmade, Spyderco, Leatherman, KaBar, & Boker are all great brands.

    I don't have a lot of experience w/ folders, but for production fixed blades- Fallkniven and Bark River have served me very well- I could have voted custom as well- as there are many quality builders out there as well- I own(ed) knives from JK Handmade Knives, Landi Knives, Koster Knives, Gossman Knives- all very quality (and affordable for custom) knives

    As far as folders go I dont think anyone beats the quality, customer service, and price of Kershaw.

    My fav is Emerson. Strong, sharp, opening wave, excelent scales....... the only problem is expensive.

    Spyderco all the way. I have never found a manufacturer that can separate me from my wallet like that!!

    I voted Spyderco...

    However, Cold Steel, Kershaw, and Victorinox aren't far behind. After I get my first Benchmade someday, it will probably join the list as well.

    I like ESEE the best, but also like Buck, KaBar, Spyderco, Condor, and Victorinox.

    I personally like the simplicity and effectiveness of spyderco's and for the price point you can't beat it :p
