I’m curious to see what knife brands are most respected and liked. You don’t need to even own a knife from the brand - simply which ones you like the best. For instance I love Ferrari and they would be at the top of my car list but I’ll never own one. To make it more of a discussion you could add why you like the brand. Mine are: Chris Reeve Knives for obvious reasons but I like my fixed blades (3) just as much as my folders (16). Excellent customer service after the sale. Hinderer. I like the design and sturdy build. Jake Hoback. I like beefy knives and they fit the bill. Spyderco. Such great variety and near perfect usability. They also stand behind their product. What are yours?: just trying to get a fun friendly discussion going. No minimum or maximum constraints on your list.
