    If I could go back and change one thing about my collection it would be to not buy so many with g10 scales aka the pocket destroyers.

    I got an older model Recon 1. Abused the hell out of it. Still got it but broke the serrations after years of hard use.
    My current edc knives are two Voyagers, 3" and 4" blades. I rotate carrying them.
    Also got a Recon Scout bowie knife and a Norsehawk.
    Bought a discontinued Scimitar, all black, a couple of months ago. Too pretty to use. Got it brand new for $150 on ebay.
    I like Cold Steel products, lots of bang for your buck imo.

    I have a 4" spear point Recon 1 that I carried for like 6 years. Thing is beat to shit. Serrations are mostly gone, I used the g10 handles as a makeshift hammer sometimes, stop pin is broke, finish is basically gone. Was a great knife fir a while though.

    Lol. I used mine as a knife, saw, hammer, pry bar, file off the top of my head. Good knife, stayed sharp for a long time even after using it for purposes its not intended for.

    My next knife will probably be the current model Recon 1. Cant decide on a clip pr tanto point though, my previous one was a clip point.

    Yeah me too. I don't even use the scimitar. The voyagers are for cutting duty only. I use actual tools now to hammer, pry, screw and whatnot.

    I would opt for the clip point as it's easier to sharpen.

    The only tanto I have is an Emerson cqc 7V. Nice knife but a pain to sharpen.

    Emerson uses 154cm on all production models. Not terribly difficult to sharpen. the knife I own that I find the easiest to sharpen is my ZT 0350 which is s30v.

    Not familiar with those blade types.
    Cold Steel uses SK5, VG1, AUS8 and some others. The new Recon 1 has a different steel CS just started using with their knives like last year I think.

    I love my ZT knives.

    My 0770CF is my favorite to carry around when I'm out and about. Perfect size, looks awesome(imo), 3.25" elmax, 3 oz. The new ones are S35V.

    Around the house tasks I use my 0350BW.

    My work knife is my Hogue EX-04 Wharncliffe

    I have one too. Great ergos on the handle.

    The 0300 is awesome as well but it's an absolutely massive knife.
