Just bought and received a Laguiole en Aubrac. Very pretty, but I think it's a piece of crap. The blade doesn't center when closed and it rests against the spring. What's the point of sharpening it? They really are pretty, but I won't be buying another. I'd post a pic, but I'm losing interest as I type...

Here's most of the current collection, My every day carry is the SOG Tomcat. The one below it is a SOG Mini Aegis which
lives in a first aide kit strapped to the Hog.

I got this recently. Smaller and more practical than the 119.

Since I live in a European town, my EDC requirements are much more humble than what seems to be necessary in America
So my EDC is a Spyderco Bug:
and a Victorinox Huntsman:
If I expect that' I'll need a more sturdy blade I'll take a Leatherman Crater
But most often I'll take a cheap Chinese knock-off of Spyderco poliwog for really rough use.
If I'm going camping then I'll take a Husqvarna hatchet and it'll be adequate for felling small trees, splitting foot thick logs, or slicing meat after all of that.
With the hatchet I don't really need a knife most of the time, but I'll take this one any way:
and that's probably the best 15$ I've spent on a piece of steel. Surprisingly comfortable grip and a good edge, thick and resilient spine.

In the field it's either my Randall Trout & Bird...
Or this Marble's (although the game shears are what I use most)...
As someone said earlier, I like the classics! Though on a daily basis it's just a small Swiss Army. I'd love to carry a REAL knife but I just can't do without that toothpick!

This one works especially well for preparing a little JackKnife Plug.....

While I have a number of pretty nice knives from my bow hunting days, though not so nice as many I've seen here, the one I carry everywhere with me is the SOG Twitch I. I always have this one in my right front pocket with the knife clipped to it.
It was a gift from a friend maybe 5 years ago and I've carried it with me ever since. It's big enough to be useful and small enough that no one seems to freak out if I take it out for use, plus it weighs next to nothing.
Mine is an early version and little different than the newer Switch I's based on this picture from the SOG website.
