The ones I'm not a fan of seem to be centered around a long, thin blade (but on a Serpentine Stockman I like a Turkish Clip!) I own all of these knives except one, but am not attracted to them; knives with Wharncliff main blades (heck, Wharncliff blades in general), Muskrat's with two identical blades such as those by Case and Schrade (I like the Buck 313 version), Toothpick's, and the "Lady Leg" knives (I don't own one of these).

As the ol' Preacher used to say, "It'd be a dull world if there was nothing but vanilla ice cream". Right off the bat, one of my favorite patterns is the Muskrat. I find it very useful when processing our home cut venison.
Hoping not to arouse the faithfull, but I don't really care for scout patterns ::paranoid:: , this don't mean I don't have one or two :) .

I like pie. All kinds of pie, even mincemeat pie in limited quantities. I would eat pie with every meal and two pieces for supper - except for lemon pie. I don't like lemon pie.

And that's the same way I feel about knives. I like 'em all. Some in very limited quantities but for the most part I never met a knife I didn't like EXCEPT for Sodbusters and the Case Russlock. I've had 'em. I've tried 'em. But I just don't like 'em (and maybe some of the more outlandish tacticals). It doesn't bother me that others are attracted to them as long as they don't expect me to get enthusiastic about 'em.

For me it has to be a functional knife first and foremost. Too many fantasy, couldn't use it if you wanted to knives out there. Uncomfortable in your hand an just plain weird looking. I certainly believe to each his own but for me if you can't use it lose it.

" for me if you can't use it lose it."

I'll give an amen to that Wayne.

Charlie I used to feel the way you do about Spydercos and similarly designed knives until I carried one. I still think they are butt ugly and they do not create in me a sense of awe at their fine craftsmanship (even though they are well made) but they function so well it's hard not to appreciate their usefulness.

I don't like a tanto style blade. I see no useful purpose in that blade design for anything I'd do with a knife.

Jerry, Jerry, Jerry..............how can you not love lemon pie? It's my favorite. ::drool:: Oh well, more for me I guess. ::groove::

Cuz, I love pie too, and I'm with Phil here as lemon is one of my all time favorites, right after butterscotch and chocolate pie made by those godly Baptist and Methodist church ladies of course.

I don't like tanto blades, tooth picks, lady legs, Russ locks, scout knives, sod busters, or anything under 3 9/16 inches long. Fantasy knives I hate.

That said, except for fantasy knives, occasionally there'll be an example of the above that interests me for some reason. But in general no.

:shock: Geez Louise! Toothpick haters unite!!!!!
I am so uterly alone!! ::mdm:: :D
I will have to agree with the tanto blades though, I just don't dig 'em. Don't have much use for a partially serrated blade either. ::shrug::

P.S. Mmmmm... Lemon Meringue Pie!!! ::drool:: ::drool:: ::drool::

I can see I stepped on a few toes with that lemon pie comment. Y'all go on ahead without me and eat my share. I'll wait for something else to come out of the oven. :mrgreen:

The only pattern I dislike is the one I don't have. ::ds::Or maybe it's that I dislike the fact that I don't have it.............What was the question again? :?
