Thank you for doing this, Ryan.

I'll take 478.

For my favorite, I don't want to choose a knife that I have not seen and handled I.R.L. I have not handled many customs or one-offs by other makers, but I would love to go to a knife show and check some out.

Out of the ones I have seen I.R.L., my favorite is one that I made myself. It is small and kind of ugly, but I find it very useful and practical. When I made it, I was concentrating on creating a fixed blade that would do everything that I wanted, on group backpacking trips, while being as light as possible. Here is what I came up with:

8481073580_103456d6d7_z.jpg


8479980041_6c6510a478_z.jpg


8481072260_3be46ab4d2_z.jpg


8721209713_48a6b028f3_z.jpg


Since taking these pictures, I have added some contouring to the handle, which makes a big difference in comfort.

With the smaller sheath, it rides in my mess kit, and weighs in at 2.6 oz.

I like Benchmade Rift 950 and CRKT Eraser. I really enjoy Liong Mah's Modified tanto flipper with ergonomic design. I also like Rift's Warren Osborne reverse Tanto. It keeps blade thickness to the tip by Tanto blade enabling secure thrust cut, and those modified blade has wide belly to not to sacrifice the need of slicing cuts.

If I may, I'll take 331.
My favorite knife? My Phillip Patton damascus hunter. I wish I could get a better pic of it. I'm just not a very good photographer and Damascus is really hard to photograph.

I always have fun with Give Aways... Thanks to those that have participated so far, I love seeing what blades people consider their favorite. Mine change frequently.

All #'s have been updated to this point on the Black List... Some of you haven't posted the info in your Signature, let me know via PM if you need assistance or have questions

I'll take #810. Thanks for doing the 2014 Year End GAW, RyanW!

I have way too many favorites to pick just one so I'll just go with my preferred EDC knife right now, the Benchmade 810SBK Contego.

Yippee!!!! I'll take Number 13. Wait a second while I check my vast inventory of knives for my favorite one. Oops... it's not with the inventory. It's in my purse.

Why is it my favorite knife? Because it's my necker. Duh. And I love to neck. And... it's purple heart wood. And... Because I like Kidney Beans. ;) And... because my local LEA said that I can legally wear this specific necker.





Thanks for the chance, Ryan.

Judy
