Orion says:

my faithful 5 are all M390, titanium flipper frame locks, first and foremost and my favorite EDC is my Reate Horizon D (with a 25BESS edge), and the rest are a Reate Torrent, Reate blue Wave, WE 704CF and Real Steel Megalodon Eclipse. They all share similar features (for muscle memory) and are built from top-of-the-line materials. I have 19 folders in my EDC rotation that all pretty much follow this paradigm.

cavtj1 says:

Thanks for posting this Mr. Bugout! My faithful 5 are the Hinderer MP1, Spyderco PM2, Small Sebenza 21 (Incosi) (Micarta inlay), Jake Hoback OSF and the Spartan Pallas.

Subpar Monkey says:

If you said not to listen to you then should I not listen to that. So should I listen to you saying not to listen to you and do the opposite of what you said by listening to you. Reminds me of the SAT
