    With out a doubt that would have to be my Gen 2 Howling Rat, I got that knife In fall of 2005 and and it is still kickin. One of the best things about the knife is the Res-C grip and the way that little knife always fits on the belt or slides in a pack with out much weight or bulk but can take on the nastiest jobs.

    And here it is with its newer cousin the Scrapyard Scrapper 5.

    Way too easy, the WAKI. It is not often that I can purchase a sword made to my specifications as to color and handle materials and have it be completely able to handle any beating I can give it. I really like the design, and as I am more fond of wakizashi size blades it is a dream come true.

    Just got my first 2 this Friday the 13th, a Howlin' Rat which I haven't let go of yet and a Chopweiler which hasn't been used yet.

    So with that the Howlin' Rat is my current favorite. :)

    Another vote for the M9LE. It has the ideal geometry and easy to maintain razor edge to make it a superb cutter and chopper, all the while remaining light and agile in the hand. Once a nice patina sets in, rust is barely a concern.

    M9LE Because it's the only one I have. A Waki LE may change my mind.

    The Chopweiler is my favorite user followed closely by my Vex.
    My favorite to look at is the EH3 Mini Uncle Mojo.

    ETA: my Waki should be here shortly and I may have to revise my statement!

    It has to be the Waki, no it's the Vex, no it's the Ratweiler.

    Well actually it's all of these. Exceptional blades in all the right sizes.

    Either my Mini Mojo or Waki. Tough choice but the lines of either are awesome.
