    Give me your Top 5 knives. They could be folders, fixed blades, tactical, etc. Doesn't matter what style, but your collection wouldn't be the same without them.
    Mine would be:
    -CRKT M21-14SF
    -CRKT/Ruger 2 Stage (full size)
    -Gerber Bear Grylls Ultimate Fixed Blade
    -SAK Camper
    -Ka-Bar USMC (don't have this one yet, but I've always wanted one.)

    1 . What I call "My Little Monster" >>>LINK the handle sucks and the ferrule is constantly loose until the wood gets wet but . . . CUT ? ? ? It cuts like nothing else. Once you try it you will put it down in fear and go sit on the couch for a while and rethink this whole knife thing like : "maybe this is more dangerous than I thought" . :eek::( ;):)

    OK, ok I'll come up with four more . . . if I have to . . . I guess.

    2 . SAK Bantam or Secretary or Gerber Patriot (all about the same) super pocket friendly super capable.

    3 . Here's the real weirdy and only any good if it gets the "'bagger mod systems approach". = Cold Steel Ti Lite IV CTS-XHP steel with totally reground blade to 1.9mm full flat. Now THAT is a knife. Pouch carry only; toss the pocket clip.

    OK that's three. Hmmmmmmm
    . . . .
    . . . .
    4 . Really the Spyderco Para 2 is pretty useful and fun to use. Only in M4 though.
    one more . . . I can do it . . . I can dooooooo it . . .

    Oh yah ! How could I forget ! ? ! ?
    5 . Case full size trapper (Case xx 3254 YAH ! Like Grateful said !) hast to be in White Sparxx handle with CV blade which they don't make or in the Genuine Stag with the CV blade which they don't make.
    I have several in SS blade that sort of makes up for it. Brilliant knife in use. Clip point blade and the handle is to die for shape wise. Prefer the fatter Stag but would rather look at the White Sparxx.

    Gosh . . . that was hard. There are some others that are right up there Ritter Grip, Gayle Bradley One ooooooooh M4 steeeeeel YES !
    yah that was hard.

    I agree.

    Marcus' thread was top 5 folders, not top 5 knives.

    My top 5 knives at the moment.

    For me it's : Benchmade 710 ; Spyderco Para-military 2: CRK sebenza; Carothers field knife and case swayback. With those I believe I have all my bases covered in the direction of my collecting

    Oh . . . that finally sunk in. I was reading "your world of knife use wouldn't be the same".
    I get to do it again !
    I never get do overs just dope slaps.
    Oh boy oh boy :

    • Buck 110 ~ 1981yr
    • SAK Champ ~ 1992
    • Cold Steel Hold Out One (wow, just wow great stuff)
    • Cold Steel Large Voyager (can not be beat for what you get in a work knife and it looks cool)
    • Spyderco Military M4 (so classic so useful )
    • Spyderco Balance (too weird and cool not to have; looks like a flying saucer closed)
    • Spyderco UK PK (overall could be the very best light one hand opener for the price. A knife sure to become a super classic).

    More than five ? I hadda make up for my mistake. :rolleyes:
