    Spyderco Manix 2
    Benchmade Griptilian
    Chris Reeve Knives Inkosi (insingo being delivered Monday)
    GEC 15 Barlow

    These are my favorites from each maker. I have other knives but these seem to be constants in my rotation.

    Anyone else favor one particular model from different companies?

    I have a few manufacturers who I only like 1-2 models from, actually.

    The only double I have is a PM2, one with Copper and Satin, one with Carbon Fiber and black DLC. Too many different knives that I like too keep buying the same in different configurations. I can see the appeal though.

    Well I misunderstood the question before I opened the thread. What the heck, to be weird I'm just going with it.
    I like full size trappers (=favorite) . . . here are some from more than one maker. I have multiples of these.
    Much improved by removing a blade and sometimes converting the blade shape too.

    Then there's the Trapper Flippers . . . I'm on my third one of these. A bit better steel (VG-10) . . . but I sure could use me some M4 in my Trappers :rolleyes: .

    No question that I have favorite folders from multiple manufacturers.... they include, Spyderco Native 5 and Delica, Vic Adventurer (111mm), Boker Urban Trapper, Steel Will Mini Cutjack, ZT 0770CF, and a number of GEC made slip joints. I suspect the Benchmade Mini Presidio II would be right up there as well, but I simply have not used it beyond cutting paper at my desk. But I like it a lot.

    Everyone can do what they like.
    I just never understood the appeal to having multiples of the same knife. Different steels? Handle materials? Still the same thing. I just pick what I like best and go with that. It frees up my funds to make other purchases.
    But hey, if it floats your boat to own 25+ PM2s more power to ya!

    Wow. I misunderstood the topic.

    The closest I have to duplicates is this.

    Cool idea for a thread, but the title's a little confusing. Maybe "multiples of the same model" or "multiple versions..." or something like that.

    I know what you mean, though, and thought at first I don't have many like that, but actually I do. Not identical versions, but different iterations of the same model. I'll start out with a couple from the Spydie wing. All the Sages including both versions of the 3. These are about as "same, only different" as you can get.

    I've got a soft spot for the black Tenacious in the pics as it was my Gateway Knife into this hobby. I'd carried a pocket knife for most of my life, but wasn't into them other than just a handy object to have along. The Tenacious was the first step into the rabbit hole of knife knuttiness. I've got so many mid-techs and expensive knives now that it's too easy to drop $30-45 on another color, blade, or grip.

    Spyderco: P'kal
    TOPS: BackBite
    ESSEE- Essee 4
    Benchmade- 51 Morpho
    Emerson- CQC 4k
    Suarez International- Grab n' Stab
    Gerber- Their folding box cutter. EAB I think its called
    Max Venom- PKM
    Bastinelli Creations- RED Raptor L. Its a great all purpose blade and heck, if Scarlett Johanssen likes it, so do I

    For customs, I like the work of Johnathan Michell, Dylan Farnam, MMHW and CMFTW (My current favorite maker by far).


    edit: Misread the OP I suppose, I thought it was being asked simply one's favorite design that you've owned from each company that you've had different models from.

    I edited the title. It was confusing. Thanks for the input and contributions. :)

    I don't own multiples of the same model, but I won't deny that I have felt tempted to get a second Cold Steel Code 4. I ended up getting the American Lawman to complement my Code 4, and now I want multiples of both! I must hold back... The titanium frame-lock is still missing from my collection!

    After I broke my first Shuffle 2, I bought two more.
    In part because I love it, in part because I'll probably end up breaking another one.

    I would get another Mini Crooked River if Benchmade shipped their customs overseas.

    Other than that no. Maybe if the CQC7K went out of production, then I'd buy ...2. Or 3.

    Multiples of the same model? That's silly.

    I often buy doubles of the same knife. But I'm trying to break that habit.

    Yep. Sage's are similar but not the same at all. That Sage 4 doesn't really fit in with the others. I'll do you a favor and take it off your hands. :) I have three each of the Sage and the Chaparral. And 2-3 of a few others just to get into different steels. Spyderco temps us with all their their variations. None we really need after one version, but many we want.
