    Truthfully, my trust Vic Pioneer gets more pocket time than probably any other knife combined. I am almost never without it.
    On the weekends, I belt carry an ESEE Izula 2 pretty frequently as well.

    For about 1.5 years now, the knife I carry probably 80% of the time is a Kershaw Blur with a deep carry pocket clip. Nothing fancy, but I like that it is US made (and even more importantly Oregon made). The handle fits my hand like it was custom made for it. The 14c28n blade is perfectly suitable for my EDC use as I don't cut cardboard all day, and it's quite easy to touch up. Mostly used to cut food at lunch, whittle sticks while camping, cut open packages, etc.

    I almost always have a Kershaw 1620 in the coin pocket of my jeans. Next would be a carbon steel Schrade Old Timeron my hip.

    Lately---a mix of a 908 Stryker---a 520 Presidio---a HK Axis lock 14517? and a PM2

    A Leatherman Micra and Squirt are always on my oversized key ring.

    the blur in 14c28n is quite a great value, but I would absolutely have to remove the unfortunate (racing?/zebra?/tribal?) paint job... I could maybe see the point if it was just high carbon steel, but this stuff is one of the most resistant steels out there

    My edc is a SAK centurian. I don't ever change it for something else. Today I had to cut up a large hot water tank box with it, and a couple other smaller boxes. It did a creditable job. Seems I have to cut or trim something nearly every day with it. Been carrying it around for years.

    To each their own, you can buy a Blur with a stonewashed blade if that is your thing

    yes agreed, no insult intended, I'm just still sore that when knifecenter had the blurs on sale, it was just those multi-stripe painted ones and I didn't want to do all the work to remove it

    A crystal white SAK huntsman or a San Ren My version of the Boker tech tool.

    They get used daily.

    They are legal to carry everywhere in the UK as 3 inch bladed slip-joints and the corkscrew means I can carry the spectacles screwdriver on either knife (I swap it back and forth)

    Also various kitchen knives from stainless to carbon steel in various sizes and a Spyderco Resilience which gets used virtually every day for kitchen work.

    This is a horrible thread. It's made me realise quite how many knives I have and how weak I am blowing money on things I don't need or use.

    Bought a Spydie Military a fortnight ago.

    There's nothing wrong with that! I have lots of knives, and I'd have said "so what, I use them all"...
    ...which is what I was thinking until I read this, thinking "well, he does that, but I don't". Except I realised I just have.(!!) In the last month I've bought four (count 'em: 4! [*]) knives I essentially have no real-world use for. Each of which is more expensive than any knife I've ever bought previously. And, believe me, I've spent decent money on kitchen knives - but always carefully selected, and never bought unless they were on special.

    But now, if dragged before the beak, I'd have to plead guilty, your worship, to blowing money on knives I don't need and probably won't use (much). Each bought "to find out what they're like" (short answer: very nice) and because I just liked the look and the idea of them. With no real belief I'd get any practical use from them that I don't already have - and more - from knives I already own and which are provably better suited to the tasks I need knives for (except, maybe, for one).

    Do you think I could get away by pleading "mental disease or defect"? 'cause that's all I have left...

    No. Thought not. [Sure: the disease or defect is there. The getting away part likely doesn't work, though. At least not with any magistrate I've ever met.]

    Same. Fortnight before I bought the Military, I contacted Fred Perrin via Facebook and bought one of his Corsica douks douks.

    I love it. I made excuses. It's a slip joint. It's slightly, marginally ok to carry in the UK. (Bullsh#t. The blades too long) An ethnographic style of knife I don't already own. It's interesting (it is.)
    It wasn't expensive.........

    But still didn't need it.

    I just wanted it, my precioussssssssss!

    The Millie was excused as...
    Always wanted one.
    Cheapest I had seen it in recent years, presumably because of the changes we Brits are assuming are coming in on locking knives.
    It's incredibly cool looking and sexy as hell. Honestly. Wet panties at 50 metres.

    Hi. I'm Matt. I'm an addict.

    nothing wrong with a high quality tool inventory, even if it won't see a lot of hard use. It a hobby for now,... addiction stages happen when you start to drop 1k pounds/euro's on a rockford or shiro =D

    My current go to knives. Love em both for different reasons, and decided there is just no point in owning a crazy expensive knife if I'm not going to put some miles on them...

    I find it interesting how many routinely carry Sebenza folders as they are a fairly expensive knife.

    I wonder if there's a 12 step program for knifeaholics? I'm getting to where it's needed, out of control about some things here.
