As I get older, I'm becoming more and more of a minimalist. I only own two knives at the moment, which I believe cover all of my needs. Reading through Para's recent thread ignited a whole new interest in knives for me this past week, and has me considering changing my choices. So... Just out of curiosity. If you could only own two knives, which two would you choose?
If only two (no shopping allowed)...my late father's old pocket worn, aged and used fairly heavily Boker pocketknife (Mom has it someplace down home), and my USMC Ka-bar Mark II.
|War Damn Eagle!|
Fixed Blade: Ka-Bar
Folder/Pocket: Benchmade Emissary
"It pays to be a winner."
Fixed blade: Randall model 14-7
Folder: Spyderco PM2
These are the two I gravitate towards the most out of what I have.
|The cake is a lie!|
If we're doing the one folder and one fixed then-
Sebenza Large 21.
Daniel Winkler belt knife.
I too went the minimalist route and have just been carrying a Victorinox Alox Farmer since it's so damn useful.
These 2 but I'm glad I have lots of other choices.
They aren't even close to my most carried ... unless I only had 2
Will take a beating, easily sharpened, multi-purpose.
Doesn't have to be one folder and one fixed. Any two knives.
Doesn't change my choices or make them less practical.
If only two, get what fills your knife needs. "Like to haves" come later.

Probably the two on me right now, which I carry every day: a Spyderco Military in S110V, and a Swiss Army knife - today and most days, it's a Wenger Day Hiker.
|Fighting the good fight|
Ritter RSK Mk 1, and an ESEE 3 (or maybe a 5).
Al Mar SERE 2000 and Spyderco Endela

My choice as well. As a bonus the Winkler shop is here in town. I can drop my Winkler blades off for sharpening at no cost.

I think for me, these two...... I am a little partial....... https://imgur.com/a/qNKUNnW
