    Good ones so far.

    Never will I buy into a budget brand. I've done so in the past and I've always sold them, they just weren't satisfying and I don't see that changing
    Never will I buy a CRK. To me, it's just a heritage brand of 90s era knives. No thanks
    Never will I buy a Medford or Hinderer or Strider or Emerson. Not my jam
    Never will I carry tip-down
    Never will I buy a >3" fixed blade and expect myself to carry it around. They print, take up more space, and don't do anything better than a folder except for maybe woods work and survival situations

    Never will I ever say never will I ever - except for a hole in the blade; unless it's made by CPK. I might make an exception if Nathan makes it.

    There sure is bunch of y'all "no tip down" folks. I will admit - I haven't done it in a long time but that is mainly because most knives don't accommodate it. I had a Gerber EZ Out, a LONG time ago and i am pretty sure it was tip down. I am looking forward to the Spydies I plan on buying because I can try it out again. I seem to remember it being much better.

    My Blur is set up for it but the handle is so short there is not much reason to do it.

    If you ever carry a gentleman’s knife in your shirt pocket, you might wanna reconsider

    Never will I ever have only one knife. Collection wise.:rolleyes:
    Never will I ever buy a clone. Even if a decent product, still a knockoff of someone else’s design and supports those trying to make a dishonest buck.

    Truth be told, it's because the ladies prefer tip-up. :eek:

    I will never buy a clone either.

    Never will I ever get in a van with "free knives" spray painted on the side.

    I only have a few hard and fast rules of thumb.

    Never will I ever buy a balisong, because they are super dumb in my opinion.
    Never will I ever buy a half serrated tanto bladed folding knife
    Never (again) will I ever buy an Emerson knife
    Never will I ever buy a MickBurgerBag knife

    This could turn into a Dr Seus rhyme!!! “I will never buy a knife from a boy and a box, I will not trust his cheaply made locks, never will i awe in how it is made, to be fooled in how much I paid.” You get the idea. I think it is quite clever. :D

    I don't really think they're dumb, it's a simple, sleek, solid construction, usually with a lot of edge which I like. I just probably won't buy one anytime soon because of how overpriced they are. I also hate that they have such a bad reputation.
    I'd like to make one.

    Never will I ever rush to get a new folder before they release the left handed version.

    If you feel that way, please please please don’t ever get involved with collecting flashlights. I speak from personal experience. You’ll very likely end up regretting it.

    Never will I ever give more than 2 seconds of thought to a knife being tip up or tip down in orientation.

    I never "collected" flashlights, but I went through the too many flashlights and too many knives phase at the same time. Thankfully, I sold most of both years ago. I've whittled my knives down to two, but I do have more flashlights than that.

    • EDC - Streamlight Microstream
    • Nightstand - Surefire of some sort
    • Jeep - Fenix PD35
    • Jeep - Fenix E01
    • Truck - Fenix UC35
    • Truck - Fenix E01
    And then three headlamps--one for each vehicle and one in my hiking pack. Now that I listed it out, I could easily scale that list down by eliminating the E01s because I've literally never used them. They were put in there for just in case, but I have a headlamp and a Fenix 35 in each vehicle already. I think I'll go through my vehicles soon and purge the unnecessary stuff. Thanks for the inspiration!
