I'm just in a sharing kinda mood right now...lol

My Edc is an CQC-7B-BTS , it's a very sturdy & stout knife. It's been with me for quite awhile, & has never let me down.

The Gerber Freeman Hunter is my camp knife. It's a very well made knife. It came sharp right outta the box.

The SOGwinder is just a pretty knife..well in my eyes atleast. It opens and closes like a dream & it cuts like nobodys business!

The Gerber Recoil that I have, has a Wharncliffe blade unlike the on in the link. The only thing missing from this is a file..other than that, it's a great multi-tool.

Wish list:

Chris Reeve Green Beret Knife <---- Dream knife #1

GENE INGRAM CUSTOM <----- Dream knife #2

I'd love to hear about what you guys have & want in the way of knives too...it'd make me feel like less of knife freak...lol

My favorites, without a doubt:

Mini Rittergrip (RSK Mk1) - clipped in my pocket every day while at work. Takes a lot of abuse without blinking.

Fullsize Rittergrip (RSK Mk1) - clipped in my pocket when camping, hiking, or any time I'm "in the field". I wish I could carry this every day, but the mini just feels better when sitting most of the day.

Fixed Rittergrip (RSK Mk3) - rides in the daypack that goes with me everytime I go camping, hiking, or any time I'm "in the field". This is truely a beautiful knife!! By the way, I think most Mk1 users will be surprised how substantial the Mk3 feels in the hand. It is noticably bigger than the Mk1.

I'll often, but not always, throw my Leatherman Charge Ti into my daypack, mostly for the pliers. Lately I find I don't use it very often and it is hefty enough that I tend to leave it at home.

I wish Leatherman would make an "outdoor" version - one that focuses less on screwdrivers and more on tools such as a saw, scissors, tweezers, an awl, etc ... maybe even a large removable sewing needle.

My EDC is a Spyderco Native, which fits my hand perfectly. I love the thing. I also carry a CRTK PECK on my keychain. I don't really like it, I never use it, but it's there "just in case". I also have a mini survival pack (a mini-camera case actually) that contains several things, one of them being Buck Prince folder. Sometimes I drop this mini-kit in my jeans pocket, but usually not.

Prior to the Spyderco, I EDC'ed a Kershaw Vapor. About half the cost of the Spyderco, but not a bad EDC knife for the money.

Hiking throws in a Becker Necker and sometimes a Cold Steel SRK into my pack. Tucked away in my pack's seperate survival kit is a Cold Steel UltraLock folder. In the altoids tin PSK always in my pocket (while hiking) you'll find a few Exacto blades.

Both Vitorinox and Wenger makes some nice knives, I have more then a few of them. They just don't fit my needs anymore, my Leatherman Wave has taken their place and my RSK Mk1 is the best folding knife I have ever owned...
