    I have only owned one of the 11 there - the kershaw leek. Loved it till I broke the tip off it!

    The Buck 110 & CRK Sebenza are the only knives on the list that I own. I use the 110 & the Sebenza sits in a drawer.

    Its nice to see this. I am familiar with all the brands except for Chris Reeves. I sold all the other brands along with others. So looking forward to retiring I am seriously considering going back into the business. I remember how much enjoyment I had. It will be a Fleamarket startup but with better than average brands.

    Among these indispensable folders, Sebenza has been my partner for several years. He sits right in my bag next to a SAK Mini Champion.

    I would pretty much agree to this. In fact I have had most of these knives over the years and I still go back and forth between a 940 and Seb every day. I have one of the first 940 production models, the old school black handled one, and it has never let me down. Wonderful EDC knife.

    I've carried 3 of the 11. Delica, Blur and Leek. I may have had a Buck 110 at some point I can't remember. My friend had a pm2 and I wasn't too jazzed up about it, I def wanna try a mini grip sometime, just for giggles though, it's just one of those things I really don't need, I probably will never find anything I like better than the spyderco delica.

    I've found for me the Sebenza 21 to be a great knife especially with inlays, mine has micarta and I find it helps with the grip. I also carry daily a Wh ed-10 carbon fiber, another great knife. But I have it bad, I love almost all knives.

    Spyderco paramilitary I had for a while as my edc. Very nice knife. Actually felt a little bad using it for work haha. Very smooth opening and just a joy to use. Nice to see it at the top of the list. Only other one I've used from this list is the kershaw leek but the spyderco stole the show in comparison.

    Three for me.

    That reminds me I need a Paramilitary.

    That Skyline looks very fetching, too. Haven’t seen it in real life though.

    RHK XM18 should get an honorable mention. While not in vast circulation is is one of the most rugged pocket knives of all time. Def one of my top 5 favorite knives ever.... especially the wharncliffe.

    For the last few years my folders have been the mid-range CRK, Strider, Hinderer, Emerson, Medford and so on. I recently wanted to try some of the more affordable knives in a search for a good edc.

    I am incredibly impressed with my Spyderco PM2. I always thought Spyderco looked like cheap gas-station knives, but this thing is a work horse. I have not had to adjust the pivot, it is centered, has no play, and I like the compression lock. I have used it for cleaning fish, food prep, and other small tasks. The edge is still razor sharp. I also can't shake it open no matter how hard I try.

    In contrast, I ordered the Benchmade 940 because of all the great reviews. I can't get it to be both centered and have no blade play. The pivot needed loctite immediately. If I have it loose enough to open via thumb flicked, it can be opened by shaking it real hard. That is common even with high-end knives, but I really don't like to be able to shake a knife open.
