    Tough to put in on five but.

    1) Emerson CQC7 tanto of some variety. This is just a tough knife that is easy to sharpen and maintain. One of the best things about these knives is they have a thick tip which I can pry with if I have to. It also has the wave which means it is an exellent little SD blade if it ever has to be pushed into that role.

    2) Sebenza Small 21, no need to explain here. Just an ideal EDC knife. Thin, tough knife. Wish I could have more confidence in the tip though.

    3) Inkosi Large, While I prefer the small in 21, I prefer the large as an Inkosi. Dual thumbstuds are a huge boon as I carry righty knives left handed. Unfortunately I still have zero confidence prying with the tip of this knife.

    4) Brous Blades Silent Soldier Ranger, Just my favourite little neck knife. Such a great design and well ground so despite being thick it slices great. The design makes it a great little SD knife simillar in use to the Fred Perrin La Griffe. Everyone should have this knife. The tip of the blade is nice and thick so it can be pried with. Realistically any version of the Silent Soldier neck knife is an excellent choice.

    5) Tie between the Street Beat and Bradford Guardian 3, Both ideal fixed blade EDC knives. The Street Beat hides abit better as it can be worn IWB but the kydex sheath seems to dull the edge.

    01: GEC Tidioute 15 Beer Scout - Perfect for my work tasks and environment, and after work too.
    02: GEC Farm and Field 71 Bullnose - Super comfortable and ready for anything.
    03: Spyderco Sage 1 - When I want something one-handed and nice looking.
    04: Victorinox Pioneer - I really like the aluminum covers and minimal toolset.
    05: CRKT Squid - Recently acquired, and I really like it. The size is great for me, and it's surprisingly smooth.

    OKC Rat 1, ESEE Candiru and Victorinox SD are on me all the time...
    Then depending on the day may add ESEE 3 or ESEE 6 to the belt.

    Or go full "boar" (ha) and carry a Busse Game Warden and Busse TGLB...
    The Busse folder would really compliment that outfit haha

    I like a variety on me anyway!

    Bonus shoutout to Spyderco Waved Endura. Light and comfortable in pocket. Practical for EDC with a thick prying tip. Can be waved for self defense in a pinch.
