Every spring I usually rotate out and in some new knives.

Some knives get rotated out just because I like them too much and if they're around I won't grab for other knives. The Delica is a good example. The Blur is also close. Those two and that GEC lockback could be if I had to have only one everyday knife what would it be - then these knives would be it.

What's surprising is that the pricier knives that I once had like Sebenzas and ever Southards did not make the EDC cut so I've found my own personal likes in knives at a lower price point which I wasn't ok with at some point if that makes any sense. I'm ok with that now to just like what I like and not chase unicorns.

I still have on my bucket list to one day get a real Dozier and some customs but I'm not in a rush.

I also try to continue with what got me into trying out knives to begun with "great budget knives at low cost."

I usually giveaway or trade out the budget knives. So far the mora has been a keeper. This year I think I want to either go with a Condor product for yard work or maybe an Ontario product for yard work... Past great budget knives have been the kabar dozier lockback. It's with faults and all a fantastic lightweight edc. Rough riders as a brand almost across the board also holds that honor.

The photo though represents knives that I use most in rotation. Do you do anything similar to this I try to conscientiously do this every spring...

Darn nice selection for sure!

I actually rotate all of my clip-knives, choosing one based on how I feel and what I will be wearing/doing that day;

This one is ALWAYs in my left front pocket -

Yes - those are Kershaw and ZT knife cases - I bought them from Kershawguy.com - very handy way to keep the knives and transport them.

My hiking rotation for 2016.

I have not get any chance to go hiking since the arrival of my first child in Feb. I hope to start hiking again before the end of the year.
 
Here's a picture of my rotation drawer

Not pictured is the BK13cp, Case sodbuster Jr that I just picked up from my vacation, a SAK traveller, and CS Spartan. Also all the larger fixed blades I sub in from time to time :D. I always have at least 1 folder and 1 fixed on me.

I actually never used to rotate my folder selection, I figured it was time for a change. I would pick the two I liked the best (Zt 0562 & 0801) and bench the rest. It was starting to make me sad that there were some pretty neat knives that weren't getting used. Hope my knife OCD can take it lol.
 
This is the most recent photo of my rotation. This is pretty much my entire collection, but all get used, and have been used. I of course have favorites that get carried more, and some less. Only missing a Small CF Insingo Sebenza that was a recent addition.

Non of the watches are particularly expensive. I have not evolved to watches yet, but maybe one day. Sadly many are low on batteries and have not been replaced yet.

Don't get into watches they make knives look cheep. Don't ask me how I know... :(

And as for batteries, for that reason I stopped getting battery powered watches, All mine are solar, or mechanical self winding... Means I never have to worry about a battery.

Personally I think every man deserve at least one real nice mechanical watch.

Look at this rotation!!! Notice how the collection are all variants of similar styled knives, watches too? Great photo!

Gotta respect a person who knows what they like.

It took me three years of serious directionless knife buying trying to come up with a philosophy and the ability to just say I like what I like. When that happened my knife buying slowed down. Before that I was just buying knives because I didn't have that size or shape and was trying to fill a gap in a knife collection. I always ended up with 10 or 15 knives at a time that I would never use.

Nowadays I have a smaller number of knives many are very similar like my manix 2 in frn and native in frn. But I'm completely happy to have and use them!
