    I love a stockman. 3 blade or a 2 blade (especially if its a clip and sheepsfoot) both catch my eye. The bigger the better. The selection of blades, the feel in hand and the look. That the fact that they are damn useful knives makes it even more appealing. My first traditional was an old schrade/uncle henry stockman when I was about 10. Unfortunately I dont have it any more. Ill share a pic of my most recent and the pride of my collection. I find myself using the sheepsfoot blade the most.

    I have many others but this one clearly takes the cake.

    I am curious what is everyone else's favorite pattern and which make, model is their favorite of the favorite???

    Medium Jack Knives with a Clip/Pen combo are my favorites.
    In this case, it's a GEC #76 Gunstock Jack that I had recovered in Ebony.

    A Double End Jack has been my favorite pocket knife pattern for the last few years. Some call it a pen knife but I like my edc to be a bit larger than a typical pen knife. Levine calls those a Double End Jack. Prior to Double Enders becoming my favorite pattern a standard Jack with clip and pen or clip and sheepfoot was my favorite pattern from my youth.
    I like the width of two spring knives and I found when the blades are on opposite ends of the knife it is more comfortable in my hand then same end Jacks. Also I have never needed more than two blades in any given day.
    I have several wonderful Double End Jacks but the 2018 BF Buck 301 comes the closest to being the best edc for me. The length, width, blade styles, steel selection and elk covers seem as if it was custom made for me.

    I like single blade knives. Simple jacks as it were. Not as versatile as a multi-blade, but I can't remember a single time in my life that I needed a second blade. A sharp knife? Sure. Another blade? Never.

    This knife is my favorite.

    Can't really say, yet. In all my years of buying knives, amassing them, collecting , hoping to be a connoisseur ;) using them, I haven't yet hit on a favourite.

    I've only come to understand the patterns I don't like ;):D

    Scant but valuable progress ....

    My favorite would be that stag covered Ohta of yours in a single clip. Such a beauty.

    I really like a large Trapper pattern. Camillus made a handsome model, even with locking blades and a lanyard hole. DM
