How many different knives do you use daily ?

Just looking at the knive block sets on the market...kinda remind me of pot sets.

Knives as a whole is a very subjective thing, but I'm curious how many different knives you use on a daily basis.

For me, it's a Shun cleaver, Kyocera 5" Ceramic knife and parer.
Cleaver was what I grew up with learning how to cook as a kid...and it's just natural in my hands.

Granted I do use the the bread knife on those big sunday meals....
And did stray away for a brief stint and used a Santoku almost exclusively as well for a bit.
Never was a big fan of a chefs knife.
