1 folder, 1 fixed, 1 multi-tool !

folder:spyderco starmate/or apogee
fixed:CRK project I \cold steel reacon scout
multy:SOG power pliers
folder small wood inlay sebenza
fixed busse battle mistress
multi tool leatherman wave

now I have two out of the three, I have the small wood sebenza and the wave, but if I had to choose one fixed blade that I have it would be my cold steel bushranger, or maybe the bushman, they are both fairly cheap, but they are my favorite big knives.
Fixed blade: Allen Blade 8.5" Combat Patrol Bowie. Great knife, great price, great maker.

Folder: Al Mar SERE 2000. I love that VG10 and lockup.

Multitool: Leatherman Pulse. Why? All blades lock, rounded handle, diamond file, scissors. I was thinking the Wave for the one handed opening knife but if I have a fixed blade and the SERE I don't need my multitool to have a quick access knife. So far I am very impressed with the Pulse.

Certainly wouldn't want to be without it.

Doesn't look very remarkable, but it grows on you and after some time you realize how versitile it is (I can and have used it in the kitchen -- so I know you don't really need serrated bread knives -- but that's a story for another week). Wouldn't want to be without it.

Some details aren't perfect, but the package as a whole is quite good.
Multitools? Once upon a time I got a (original) Leatherman and later the small one. I gave away one of them and the other is somewhere around, but I don't remember which which should tell you something of how I feel about multitools. I guess the Victorinox Executive might be called on, that one I've'd a long time.
