    Ok, cant sleep.

    A non-educational, probably has been done before, hypothetical thread to show opinion based responses. :D

    There are several brands out there and you can list as many brands as you want, but you can only list one knife from each brand. So, what one knife would you own from each brand?

    Great Eastern Cutlery - 81 Stockman - 1095
    Spyderco - Manix 2 S110V
    ZT - 0566bw Elmax
    Lionsteel - M4 M390
    Queen Cutlery - Cattle King Stockman - D2
    Case - Sowbelly - Cv
    Chris Reeve - Large Insingo
    LT Wright - Patriot 3v
    Victorinox- Blue Alox Farmer
    Benchmade - 940-1
    Buck - 110 - S30V
    Arno Bernard - Scavenger - Wild Dog - N690
    Bradford Knives - Guardian 3 - Sheepsfoot - M390
    ESEE - Inzula II
    Survive Knives - GSO 6 - 3v
    Hess Knives - Tiburon -1095
    Opinel - No8
    Kizer - Feist - S35vn

    I know there are others out there, this is off the top of my head. Interested to see what you all select.

    I'll list a few production folders of brands from which I have a solid experience of multiple knives:

    Spyderco: PM2 M390
    Benchmade: 710-1401 M390
    Cold Steel: Right now I'd probably say the 4max but it is slightly GIGANTIC. I want to try the Ultimate Hunter in XHP.
    ZT: 0452CF

    I have used lots of knives from other brands but not enough to say that I like such and such the best out of the herd.

    Off the top of my head...

    Mora- Carbon steel companion
    Victorinox- Swisstool CS if multitools count as knives, probably the Ranger if they don't.
    ZT- 0909 (though giving up my 0452cf would make me very, very sad, utility first here)
    Camillus- Electrician's knife
    Cold Steel- Master Hunter
    SOG- Northwest Ranger
    Swamp Rat- Jackmandu
    Busse- NMSFNO
    Fallkniven- F1
    Western- L77
    Kabar- Becker BK7
    Ontario- RD7
    Schrade- My dad's battered old stockman
    Condor- Golok
    Helle- GT
    Bark River- Boone
    Blackjack- Model 7

    These are all knives I own and I'm sure I'm forgetting quite a few. This list is also subject to change the next time I touch a new knife or the wind changes direction.

    Some of the brands are certainly harder to pick from. Some have mentioned knives Ive never heard of and needed to look up.

    I once had a goal of owning one example from each brand, but then changed my mind. It would make an interesting collection though imo.

    I like these lists because they give me new knife ideas. My wallet does not like these lists because they give me new knife ideas.

    Sadly the Froe is not among the buck knives i own, but I have given it some handling and using time on the French Pyrinees together with the Buck Hood Thug (which I didn't like a bit)
