As you can probly tell from foto #1 the 22087 was my single EDC for a long time. Bought new in 1978. So I can relate to the one on one scenario. I think life has been enhanced by having a few more EDCs now. For one thing, it makes you appreciate old reliable #1 more when it goes back in the pocket. Kind of like slipping on your favorite pair of Levis. SAK Cadet has been real handy a few times when a screwdriver was needed and tool box was way over there >>>. Plus at my age need the cap lifter more frequently. And the nail file edge works great on lottery scratch offs. As you can see, the cadet is my lightduty day knife. If in doubt, easy enough to add the Schrade SW7 switchit to the back pocket. The Queenie is a 1982 9105, about same size as 22087 but square bolsters and heavier blades & liners make it feel more HD than 087. I have a few chores I prefer to use the Q for, where better grip and finese are important. The 63032 I found in an antique shop's junque drawer. Unresharpened w/some pepper and spotting on the CV blades plus bolster scuffs from the hazardous drawer duty. A 1998 Chestnut for $15 seemed like a good EDC rotation candidate to me and a chance to give the 087 a well deserved rest. A little cleanup & few drops of oil and it now functions as easy as the 087. In another AAPK thread someone said life is too short to carry a cheap knife. All mine would fit in the cheap category (except the 6347) but imho form following function, ie utility combined with comfort & familiarity are more important attributes of an EDC than just cost.
Since I never carried a $200+ knife it may just be I don't know what I'm missing. But that's the same reason I don't go test drive a BMW, Porsche, Acura, Lexus, etc. Ignorance is (can be) Bliss !
