OSBORNE hands down. I have a 581BK Barrage/M390 and a 943/S30V both are near perfect.
I do have a custom Griptillian on order (Mel Pardue) to try something different.
I guess I have to say Osborne design... My everyday carry is a benchmade Osborne design Rift axis
Osborne (581, 810,) Lum (760), McHenry & Williams(Infidel), Lerch....
Never owned a Pardue design.
My all time favorite is the 710 McHenry and Williams design. After all they are the inventors of the Axis Lock. Plus, it is, as stated, a perfectly balanced knife. Next favorite is the Osborne 940 that I carry every day for the past 13 years. And finally the Elishewitz designed 913 Nitrous Stryker. Love the way the mechanism works.
By Far its Snody the 420 Resistor , however for the new year 2014 Warren Osborne I feel partial to the 950 Rift 950SBK
