Spyderco is my favorite knife company for folding knives. When I bought the Spyderco Native it only came with a silver clip. I contacted the company and they sent me a black clip at no charge. Their customer service and knife designs are great.
Cold Steel makes the best fixed blade knives in the world. They produced a video called Proof to demostrate how tough the knives are. They put the Recon Tanto and SRK through the hood of a car several times. I had my Recon Tanto with me when I came across an abandoned car near Rock Canyon in Provo. I put the knife through the car door 10 times without damaging the knife. It did wear off the powder coating at the tip, but that only makes the knife look cooler.
Surefire flashlights are the best light on the planet. They are tough as nails and I’m pretty sure you can shoot the beam to outer space. I carry the Defender everyday. I’ve blinded my comrades at work during the day. I look forward to the day that I get to blind and strike a perp in a dark parking lot.
Leatherman makes the best multi-tool on the market. I got the PST over 10 years ago and I love it. They have the best designs and the best tool options. Plus, Leatherman is a much cooler name than Gerber. A multi-tool can’t be named after baby food. That’s just stupid.
