    I would immediately replace my Terävä Skrama, Opinel No. 10, SAK CyberTool (I would probably replace it with an Alox Pioneer, though), TRM Atlas and the Manly Wasp. Hmmm... Three of those are slip joints. Interesting.

    I put together a shopping cart to get me by until I found the thief and gathered my belongings. 20190818_190601-2241x3984.jpg
    The SAK and GEC get carried together mostly, so I counted them as 1.

    These four. Although, I have a feeling my bus wouldn't be at stop four very long.
    Gary, you made an entire community shutter today.

    Very difficult. Most of my knives are discontinued, LE, custom, or customized.

    I would immediately buy another purple WE Deacon and a Vic super tinker.

    Busse Basic 9

    Busse Anniversary Mean Street

    Allan Blade MEUK

    Al Mar Sere 2K

    There are a lot more I like, but at this point those are the first four I’d replace. I could probably use those four forever and not need anything else.

    I don’t think I’d ever get another MEUK though...

    Buck 110, a (large) Stockman, a (2 blade) Barlow, and a Scout/Camp knife, for sure.
    Closely followed by a Canoe, Moose, and (large) Sunfish, and a Mora #1.

    IMG_6898.jpg Thats a tough one as i rotate daily for the most part. I would say only 4 would probably be:

    Spyderco endura
    SAK cadet alox
    Spyderco Sage 5
    Manly Patriot fixie

    These would be my most practical choices for daily life. I only own a few fixed blades as im mainly a folder guy but the patriot is my favorite even though its not a Biggin.

    Probably #1 is my Para2 M4. Life wouldn't be worth continuing without that. Good luck replacing it right ? Heck I didn't even have to reprofile it; I just barely touch it up every blue moon and use it. IMG_4683.JPG

    Then one or another of the Case Trappers (spay blade removed naturally). I really dig the Genuine Stag (in use . . . I'm all about how it feels and how it cuts over looks)
    IMG_4180.jpg
    But lately I have been having a second honeymoon with the White Sparxx.
    Something about how it looks I like a whole lot ! I wish the handle was as fat as the Stag but it swells a little and it sure isn't bad ! ! !

    Then it starts to get tough (labor intensive and unavailable)
    My rehandled Brad Zinker Urban Trapper
    Yes I'm a broken record / still love it.
    IMG_4253.JPG

    and the Cold Steel Full Flat Ground Ti Lite IV CTS-XHP.
    IMG_3720.jpg

    Finally my Little Monster White Paper Steel Japanese Kitchen Knife.
    When I want to remember just how well a knife can cut !
    IMG_3374.jpg

    Only "three or four" . . .
    you're joking right ? !

    At this point I'm just way too used to always having these four available, so they'd get replaced quick;) The CPKs (D2 HDFK & EDC1) go everywhere with me on my bag o' doom and the folders (Hiroaki Ohta whittler & Case/Bose Wilfred lockback) live in @Gary W. Graley sheaths on my belt everday:)

    Easy, Benchmade 940. That's it - that's all. Anything added after is just dessert.

    I EDC (every day for real) the same 3 so that would be easy.

    SAK Rambler (modded)
    SAK Spartan (modded)
    LM Charge AL (modded)

    I did all the mods myself so it wouldn't be too difficult. As for the fourth, assuming I don't have to include kitchen cutlery, hmmm, difficult. I carry my GEC #18 Coyote as a suit knife but not sure if I would replace it like for like. It's beautiful but not essential if that makes sense. I'd have to get back to you guys on this one.

    I would only replace 3. I'd replace my Bradford G3, my digi-cam Para 2, and my BM 940-2. That's all I need and it's 99.9% of what I carry and use.
