I am pretty late to the party. But my best knife is my Horrigan Fighter. Designed by Bob, built by John. Took it to SERE school and everywhere I have been since.

Look into purchasing the Kershaw 12 Meter. as a replacement... it's a little heavier than the Yachtsman, but it has a beefier hand profile, nice when it's wet and chilly.

Finally bent the Kabar I've used backcountry for the last twenty years and recently replaced it with a Randall ESEE based on advice. I like the thinner blade on the ESEE but I haven't used it enough to form a real opinion. I'll get back to you in a year or two

I rope from horseback, so my EDC has to have a partially serrated edge. My EDC gets (mis)used for everything when I don't have the real tool for the job handy and gets replaced often enough that I gave up on beautiful pocket knives some years ago. My current is a cheap Gerber EVO and is about the best I've had because the blade will hold an edge for a couple of weeks and it's been almost a year now and the clip still hasn't worked loose.

As an EDC, most likely H&K tumult for survival IMHO the ka-bar/Becker BK9

Mine is a Gary Wheeler, but I'm a little biased. I carried mine in Afghanistan, and cut everything with it from MRE's to det cord. It was so worth a Morgan silver dollar.
