  1. I’ve gotta say it’s a close call. I love my Kershaw Junkyard Dog II, but I finally picked up a Spyderco Paramilitary 2 recently and I’ve been carrying it for 2 weeks straight. Probably the PM2

  2. Picking a favorite is almost impossible! I do love my Nocturnal Knives ENC though… Among others! ZT560 is one of my go to’s Edc. Same with Spyderco Para and Military! Too many great blades out there!

  3. I have several Buck and Schrade knives that I own and love, but I have really been looking into custom made blades lately. I like Artificum Solis blades although they’re quite pricey. Have never owned a Spyderco.

  4. I got to say my M390 PM2 with black g10 scales. One of a kind and is remarkably amazing in every feature. I like by the Salt water and that doesnt even affect the always sharp and strong steel. Thanks for the chance to win a Gayle Bradley Air with M4 tool steel.

  5. My favorite knife presently is the Spyderco Southard. I’ve had it with me every day since I got it a few months back. One of the best investments I’ve ever made.

  6. It’s a tough decision, but I am going to have to say my Spyderco Paramilitary 2. I can’t think of any downside to this knife. Everything about it just seems perfect.

  7. I love all knives. And different situations require my love to be partial to one over anoter one day and different the next. Today, my EDC is my Spyderco Tenacious, Buck 110 and TRIO, My BHK Batwing pro and my Schrade SCHOTF7.

  8. I own lots of spydercos but my favorite is in my pajama pocket right now.
    Spyderco DragonFly2 Salt HE.
    Best edge ever, cuts through anything, ideal size, weight and I even used it to make a Valentines Day card for the wife. OH also, its totally rust and stain proof.

  9. I do not yet own a Spyderco knife. Hopefully I can begin to love this knife soon…
    But, I do have a Buck 110 that is a trooper. And a Kershaw Blur.

  10. My great uncle gave my Grandpa a little fixed blade boot knife when he was leaving for WWII. It sits in my safe now, never gets used. But every time I get it out I remember him and the sacrifices he made to serve our country. That is my favorite knife. A close second is my blue, leaf blade, plain edge UKPK. It is an awesome knife and never leaves my side.

  11. Hmmmm well as a knife addict, my favorite knife will always be my newest one! Currently it’s my benchmade sequel but I’d love for my new fav to be the Air! Happy V-Day, BladeHQ!!

    Your faithful customer,
    Carl

  12. right now i’m rockin’ my kershaw freefall and my strider sng…. favorite knife!? i love em’ all!! depends how i’m feeling that day. big microtech fan.

  13. I really love my Spyderco Stretch Blue Nishijin Glass Fiber Knife. That is one beautiful knife. Although, I just ordered a Kershaw Skyline Damascus from Blade HQ so that may change soon.

  14. I *love* my Spyderco Delica4 (plain edge). I’ve EDC carried a Delica model for the past 18 years and they have never failed me. I have my original Delica Clip-it and it’s still wicked sharp and perfectly usable.

  15. Of all my knives that I have I think my original Benchmade Mini Griptilian is still one of my favorites. Always holds a good edge and can take on everything I throw at it.

  16. The knife I love and cherish the most? That’s a hard one. But if I had to pick one it would be my Spyderco tenacious or my paramilitary 2. I can’t pick I love them all.

  17. My favorite knife if my Paramilitary 2. It has lived in my back pocket for three years now. It has killed thousands of cardboard boxes and the g10 is looking pretty worn. I touch the g10 up with a little sandpaper now and then. The s30v holds a great edge and I find it easy to keep touched up on the sharpmaker. It also served me well for a week in the wilderness of Manitoba Canada. Making short work of walleye and feather sticks for the fires. Whenever friends show me their knives I pull out old trusty and the crocodile Dundee line “that’s not a knife” gets thrown out. I trust it so much that when two of my college buddies joined the army I knew the perfect gift to give them. After a total of six combined tours in Afghanistan both the knives and my friends came home safe minus one broken tip. I was told by both of them how it was an indispensable tool.

  18. fav knife is my only knife currently. it has to be my CRKT foresight by Ken Onion. but I have been interested in spyderco since I found out Denzel used a spyderco police in Training Day.

  19. I love my Emerson mini commander. Ive been meaning to pick up a spiderco but have yet to get around to it as i always come back to my emerson, would love to switch it up!

  20. Ohh… tough choice. I think I’ll settle for the Spyderco Stretch in ZDP-189 for now, however I’ve got a special lil’ sumthin’ sumthin’ coming which may change my knife collecting…

  21. I have alway’s been partial to Microtech. Fist time I ever saw one was when Jack Bower opened his Halo on the show “24” and I was hooked. Right now though, I am realy enjoying my Skyline for EDC.

  22. My old benchmade AFK saw me through two deployments without once having to be resharpened. Only reason I still don’t carry it is cause the pocket clip broke.

  23. My favorite knife (that I own) is a Blue Spyderco Military s90v. My favorite knife (that I don’t own) that I’ve had my eye on for many months is a Red Loinsteel SR-1A. Thanks for the chance at a giveaway!

  24. My favorite knife is my Spyderco Tenacious! It has been rock solid over the years, and it still takes a razor edge. Plus, you can’t beat the price point!

  25. I love all my knives, but i have 3 favourites. My spyderco endura 4 in grey frn scales, my spyderco persistance with the sprint run blue g10 scales and my s&w search and rescue tanto fixed blade.

  26. We’d known each other for a while, and she recently began flirting with me. I, of course, flirted right back. It’d been an exciting couple of days before I decided to act on my instincts and asked her out to lunch that morning. She agreed to meet me at a locally owned café where we could sit, talk, and enjoy some pleasant food.

    I was already seated when she came up to the booth, and as she glanced down, she smirked. “Is that a roll of quarters in your pocket, or are you just that excited to see me?”

    “Huh?”

    She raised one eyebrow, pointed with her eyes towards my waist, and gave a little smirk.”

    Ah. She saw the outline of my knife in my pocket. “Well, I don’t usually pull this out in public,” I began with a wry smile, “But if you insist.”

    “Oh! Is that a Benchmade?” She asked. “It looks like a bigger version of mine.” She reached into her purse and pulled out a pink Mini Griptilian.

    We’ve been together since.

  27. I love my Chris Reeve Large 21 Sebenza with micarta inlays. She’ll always be my go to, but lately I’ve been having an affair with the Boker Burnley Kwaiken flipper. I sometimes also get the occasional visit from my Russian mistress, Shirogorov mod 95… 😛

  28. this one:

    I grew up not really having much of a Father, My Uncle Al was the man who taught me to set up a camp, start a fire, and to catch game for food. He taught me conservation, how to treat the environment and what fish to keep, and what fish to release. He also taught me how to sharpen a knife, and how to handle one properly.
    My Uncle Al passed away 10 years ago.
    As custom in our family dictates, we were each allowed to go into his old fishing shack and choose something of his too keep for our own. Being the youngest at the time I went last…
    I looked through the old place, searching for something that would bring me closer to him. In the back of a drawer in his old work table, I found a delapidated woolen knife roll.

    The only thing in it was a Spyderco Endura.

    It sung to me, songs of my childhood with this great man… I could smell the campfire and hear his voice telling me how to oil a stone.

    That knife was my every day carry for a long time… and got me through some stuff scrapes and many adventures.

    This recent Christmas I passed it down to my nephew.

    He didn’t have much of a Father… and I had the blessed honor of showing him the things that Uncle Al taught me.

    When I gave it to him and told him the story of my Uncle… we hugged and cried… and He promised that he would be there for his kids when he had them, and that he would pass this blade on to his son or daughter in Uncle Al’s name.

    I miss that Endura… and intend to “replace” it…. I miss my Uncle Al… but I know that his legacy lives on in that perfect knife.

  29. The knife i love best is my ershaw RJ1. Shes been through everything with me, and helped me through all my ranchwork and made all of my hockey card pack openings go smoothly. And i dont think moving would ever get done without her. One time her torsion bar broke, and i was sad for a few weeks, but now shes back and better than ever. We truly have a great bond.

    I love her

  30. Oh man, my favorite knife? Izula. All other arguments are now irrelevant. My wife’s favorite color is Red and since you guys got the red ones in stock, I got her one for her birthday (I give knives as presents) and she loves it. After Izula, Para-2 then the list goes on for miles and miles…

    Lightning OTF is pretty slick too. Oh yeah, I went there..

  31. I never get nuttin from my children for Valuntines day 🙁 even though I gave birth to-um. I bet when I kick the bucket they will love this SpyderCo Air. Those little BRATS!!!! LOL

  32. I love my spyderco tenacious and persistence . Such a grate blade , love the feel and sturdiness . Even better ,love how they mill out parts inside to make it weigh less .

  33. My favorite knife is my Kershaw Blur. Ken Onion designs knives that I have carried for 5 years. Love the sleekness and the utility of the knife. The Blur is the largest of his knives that I have owned, and so far, my favorite.

  34. I like knives. If its something that has a blade and a practical use I’m into it. I have been using the Boker Vox lately because I’ve been eating a lot of steak and it cuts through it like butter. Thanks for the opportunity.

  35. I love Spyderco knife co. What a great idea to do a knife giveaway on Valentine’s Day it breaks up all the mushy flowers and candy stuff. thank you for letting me be a part of this give away, fingers crossed,maybe I can get lucky.
    Happy Valentines day!!

  36. The knife I love the most is my CRKT NIRK Tighe 2 because my wife bought it for me to celebrate the birth of our daughter. My favorite edc is my Spyderco ParaMilitary 2 because it’s one if the best edc knives ever made!

  37. I own and EDC many knives but the one I carry and use most often is the RAT-1. Great edge, strong blade and a great work horse. It gets abused but always comes back strong. If it should ever fail or break, it cheap enough to be replaced by another. Of course, it size can make some nervous and make it overkill for small jobs… That’s way, right beside the RAT-1, I carry a Spydero Bug knife.

  38. I probably love the Southard the most. It has such organic lines, especially that circular look to the edge. However, I’ll take a free Air any day of the week 😉

  39. I absolutely love my Benchmade Osborne Rift that I got from BladeHQ. That knife has been through a lot with me. I’ve had it for over a year and it’s still going strong. The half serrated edge gives me all the power I need to cut through anything. It’s an awesome knife.

    And not to mention I love YOU! BladeHQ, will you be my Vallentine? You guys have been there for me 24/7! Wether I’m happy, sad, lonely, or just board. I can find joy in browsing your site. Whenever I order something from you guys, it’s like Christmas! The other guys in my shop say I have the biggest smile when I see a package sitting on the desk. And not to mention when there is an AMAZING picture drawn on it! Especially Abraham Lincon riding a T-Rex shooting zombies- best one yet!
    So Happy Vallentines day BladeHQ! I love you all!

  40. I love my Spyderco SS Native. I got that knife about 15 years ago, and it’s never left my side. I have tons of other knives but they can’t compare to the memories I have with my native. That knife has seen new life brought into this world and older-life extinguished from it. It’s traveled the country, and has been used every way a knife can be used. I wouldn’t let go of that knife for the most expensive custom made knife in the world. No knife will ever be able to replace my Native. That knife will be the heirloom I hand down to my kids… after I physically can’t use a knife anymore.

  41. What I love most about Spyderco cutlery is the variety they offer coupled with great craftsmanship. It is difficult to select a favorite out of the 8 spyderco’s I own, since they all serve different needs. I will say the most utilitarian is the Endura combo edge. Friends and family really like the Yojimbo and Manix 2 both w/g-10 scales the most but I dig them all. If that Air is added to my collection… that may change the equation.

  42. Favorite knife?! That’s a tough question… It’s between my Boker Kalashnikov in acid green and my Ontario Rat 2. But there’s so many to love, I tell them my heart is big enough to love each one equally! My boker is just too cool and my Rat is a great EDC that won’t freak people out. Happy V-Day!

  43. I thouht I posted earlier but I don’t see it, I wanted to double check and make sure I entered. My favorite knives my delica 4 in blue frn, standard para 2, and my bk2. It’s very hard to just pick one.

  44. Right now I’m in love with my ZT0600. It’s the nicest knife I’ve handled on a production level and it raises my libido without a prescription. Nuff said.

  45. My All time Favorite Knife is my Original Spyderco C01 Worker, Which is a Gin-1 blade and 2 screw model. To make a long story short, My father was physically abusive to my mother left him while I was young, so My Grandfather filled in over the years when he could. Threw out the years of us hunting, fishing, camping together he always had his Spyderco C01. I cant put a number how many times I asked him if I could have it and he would always say the same thing when the time is right. Well Needless to say about five years ago he took me on a hunting trip and I thought it was just going to be just like any other. Except on the last day of the trip he gave me his Spyderco. The reason this was not like any other is because he passed away a week later and I knew at that moment that the time was right. I will never sell this knife and it will be passed on to my son one day to keep the tradition alive. Thank you for the opportunity to give this knife nut a chance at this fine Knife. Right now times are really hard and this would totally make my Valentines day.

  46. I LOVE my Benchmade 710. It’s slim enough to be a comfortable EDC but beefy enough to still be a workhorse. The D2 blade has stayed razor sharp after a lot of use. It was the first Benchmade I ever bought and it changed the way I look at more “expensive knives.”

  47. My ALL Time Favorite Knife Has to be My Zero Tolerance Hinderer 0566. Very Sexy Stonewashed Elmax Steel Blade, Solid Lockup,& Just Love the way it feels in my Hand.

  48. Of all the knives I own my favorite by far is the mcusta katana due to the perfect combination of toughness, keenness, and artistic flair. The viper keeper and crkt otanashi noh ken are both close seconds.

  49. Love my Spydies, but as of late my Benchmades have been getting the most pocket time. The Axis lock on my Griptilian and Rift are crazy smooth and solid…

  50. My favorite Spyderco is the R series…elegant, rugged and practical all rolled into one. Spyderco is in the top 5 list of knives that i wont hesitate to buy!

  51. ~My favorite knife is the one in the picture!! It would be awesome to have one of my own and not my hubby’s hand-me-down!! The last one he gave me had a broken tip!! Still works though, I still appreciate it!!

  52. My favorite is an engraved stainless steel Police model with serrated blade. I’ve got about 25 different Spyderco knives that I’ve gotten over the years

  53. A knife doesn’t have to be super expensive to be awesome. It just has to be the one that accompanies you wherever you go and tackles any job you give it, keeps it’s edge and asks for more. My $25 Byrd Meadowlark is my EDC. I haven’t gone a day since buying it that I haven’t used it.

  54. My favorite os my last present: a spyderco kiwi3 ! But un France we have a good designer for spyderco, his name “bastinelli création”, show the website… Thank’s Blade HQ !

  55. My favorite knife is the one my 5 year old son picked out for me for Christmas, its a Boker Automat Kalashnikov 74, my first automatic knife and I LOVE IT!!

  56. Have to give it so my Dragonfly 2 in H1. Not only was it the first knife I ever bought on my own (having saved up for it), but the yellow handles and the way they show dirt and grime to remind me of where I’ve been, what I’ve been doing, makes it extra special. Give it a good rinse down and start building again.

  57. I Love my Benchmade Emissary 470!

    Needing a new EDC for 2012 I got on BladeHQ and saw the Benchmade Emissary 470 (Satin). I purchased one for my right-handed self and loved it so much that the following week I bought one for my left-Handed Father.

    As a matter of fact, I Love it so much that even two years later that Benchmade Emissary 470 continues to be my primary EDC.

  58. I forget the model (it’s 15+ yrs old) but I’ve got two SpyderCo knives, same model, back to back years, that my Dad left me. Basic 3″ folders that just flat get it done.
