    I started 2011 carrying a SOG Aegis.

    For a while I carried a Blind Horse Knives mini-Brumby in a pocket sheath, then a Blind Horse Knives Bushbaby, pretty rapidly back to the Brumby.

    Then I became aware of what the local law on knives really is, and quickly went back to folders.

    About two minutes after the East Coast Earthquake I decided to EDC more knife, fell back to my old Ontario RAT-1 at first, had a brief fling with a Benchmade 950 Rift, then to the ZT-0551. Full stop, unless something extraordinary comes up, this will do for some time. Wearing cargo pants during the week I often balance it with a Leatherman Ti on the other side (while relatively harmless, the 5.8 tremor/"quake" was a wakeup call, and we'd had a 3.4 the previous summer).

    Kicking around on the weekends sometimes I pocket a ZT-0301 instead, just for ease/speed of opening, but I find it a bit too heavy, I really like the ZT-0551 a lot more... yet another vote for it.

    Well all mine probably add up to one knife like the Emerson Commander, but it's an early collection. It's kind of easy because I only got I think six knives all year (the mora fixed blade can't be included haha).

    1. Buck Vantage Pro large
    2. Standard Kershaw Leek
    3. Spyderco FFG Endura
    4. Buck 55
    5. Schrade USA 108ot small stockman

    1. Buck vantage pro. I cant still cant believe that a rock solid liner lock with g10 handles and a bos treated s30v blade only cost me $55.

    2. Strider sng. Good knife but not to fond of the large choil. I prefer more cutting edge on a blade that size.

    3. Bradley alias 1. Really good knife for the price. Sad I sold it.

    4. Ritter grip with wilkinsgrips. Should have never sold it.

    5. I'm getting an umnumzaan for x-mas so ill put it down. I'm sure I will be pleased with it!
