    Got lots of knives in lots of different grinds.

    I like them all, they all have a purpose.

    Full flat for me in nearly every case, given the option.

    Only thing I don't like are compound and chisel grinds.

    Agreed. Not too fond of chisel grinds too.

    How is this not a poll!?

    Hollow grind my favourite also. Keeps the edge nice and thin through lots of sharpenings

    A good Hollow Grind is my favorite for an EDC knife.

    I like Saber and Full Flat for working with wood (fixed blades).

    Many of my folders have been full flat. Only because I liked the style of knife, and that was the only option grind.

    I always preferred full flat grinds on my work knives. A year or so ago I got a custom Laconico EZC with a well executed hollow grind. That sold me. I'm now thinking about commissioning a 6-inch hollow grind utility/petty knife.

    Hollow followed by full flat.

    A hollow grind kinda makes a blade “feel” better made. Like someone took their time, even on production pieces.
