Keep the 0560bw, because - for me - its the most desirable of the three.
Gift the Adamas, because I have no interest in it.
Break the Cold Steel, because I have yet to see a Cold Steel knife that appeals to me.

Moving on:
CKF Milk, Begg SteelCraft Bodega, and ZT0392 ( the original)

I would keep the bodega cause I wanna see what these are about.
I would gift the ZT cause it's a ZT and this one is a nice looking one and somebody would definitely love it.
Trash the milk cause it doesn't appeal to me.

Next:
Zt 0456
We 603a

I'd Keep the Helix because I've always wanted to try one;
I'd Gift the ZT because I like it more than the We
I'd destroy the We because its my least favorite of the three!

I'd keep the Benchmade 710. Don't have one, always wanted one, the clock is ticking on finding one...
I'd gift the Spyderco Military. It's too big for me to EDC, but someone would love the knife...
Sadly, I'd trash the ZT0452CF. No real reason for it's trashing, it just went up against two better knives.

Keep the GM2. It's sexy and I want one.

Gift the Reate. It's a fantastic knife and beautifully crafted.

Trash the ZT. No fault to the ZT, it's just the lesser of the 3. I'd have to play with it a bit first though.

If it's not against the rules, I'll go again .

Keep the fulcrum cause it's the closest thing to a standard knife to me.
Gift the snap lok cause somebody might need a tacticool ninja star/ knife.
Trash the daktyl cause I don't need a clothes hanger that might cut me.

keep the Beer Scout, I love the way GEC does their wharncliff, plus it would be great for tailgates
gift the 74. everyone could use a simple well made slip joint
get rid of the strek. i like the main blade grind and profile, but that funky saw ruins it for me

Is this another April fool scam?

Not at all, just an exercise in prioritizing. :)

Wow, this took off pretty quick, some tough choices and some pretty easy ones. Where are we at now? What were the last three choices to pick from?

ETA Never mind ;)

Keep the Insingo as I own several CRKs and know how bad ass they are. Gift the Emerson as it is a nice knife and have a perfect friend in mind and trash the Volli. The Volli never did anything for me. This game is probably not the best idea for a dealer to be playing but it is fun:D


Spyderco Para Military 2, ZT0808 or Benchmade 940.

Keep the Benchmade 940 because it's my most wanted knife right now.

Gift the Zero Tolerance 0808 because it's a great knife.

Trash the PM2 because they're kind of a dime a dozen.

I would keep the DF(one of my top 5 folders).
Gift the benchmade, i know too many people who love BM and assisted knives.
Destroy the launch unfortunately. Awesome little blade, but its what's left.

Next is a Spyderco PPT sprint, zt0450cf, pm2 (a standard s110v). This is my entire collection now btw :)
Curious of what someones answer would be. 0724172303-1-1.jpg

Keep the Spartan. Never heard of it, but it looks good

Gift the CRK. It has good name recognition, so the recipient is more likely to appreciate it's value

Destroy the Benchmade. If they can't bother to put some scales on it, then I'm not interested.
