    Uncle Henry has been with me around 30 years.

    Still as dull as ever.

    Actually, duller than when new.

    My family made the mistake of buying me a sharpening stone set for Christmas about ten years ago.


    ....



    We've now replaced all of our knives, except Uncle Henry.

    Oh yeah! And the serrated knives. We haven't had to replace those.

    ...


    And my sharpening stones have mysteriously disappeared.

    Give Kershaw a call. Its just a little spring steel in the handle. easy to replace. I replaced 2 of the blade locks one on a leek and one on a chive (?)
    I like my kershawas (obviously) carry one of them my leatherman, and often even a Cold Steal (no that was not a typo. Typo implies accident) Triple action tanto point. Heck of a knifebut kinda overpriced for the um, quality aluminm handle. I shoulda saved the money for another pistol instead.

    I have 3 knives that I carry with me, not all at once of course.

    RAT RC-3(my new toy) with the partially serrated blade and modified pommel.

    Kershaw Ken Onion Blur with serrated blade

    CRKT M-16 with a tanto point and serrated blade

    I got a Case Stockman in my pocket. Just a good general purpose knife. I have a couple of flip open ones I got from S&W promotions. I also got a few hunting knifes. Nothing fancy.

    Okay sorry I couldn't help myself.

    Haven't you met any Delf yet Jeff. They are a tough lot every bit as bad as the Mongols or Spartans of old. My knives are definately not for Delf Defense, that duty falls to my 12 guage and or .308. I realy prefer not to upset them. One of our local Bigfoot tribes had a falling out with a Delf last week and that tribe is now extinct!!

    Well, I went 45 years without a pocket knife. Never liked the bulk & weight in my pocket. Now I carry two.

    When CC permits became available in New Mexico several years ago, I started carrying a gun & a knife. I think they go together like peas & carrots. Then I saw Mas Ayoob on TV say that you should carry two knives. So now I carry a "small" well worn Spyderco Delica clipped in my strong side pocket for regular daily use. Clipped in my weak side pocket is a Spyderco Endura Wave. The Endura is designated for "weapon retention" as per Ayoob and others.

    Don't know if I really need to carry two knives, but clipped in the pocket I forget they're there.

    Just picked up one of these last weekend with the Damascus blade. I like. The assisted open mechanism is very sweet. Flick the index finger and it is open.

    I used to carry a CRKT M16, but managed to lose it. Now I have a Boker Kalashnikov automatic (legal with CCDW in KY) and a Ka-bar Deluxe Little Fin on order. If they work out, I'll carry them, along with my 10 year old Case beater.

    I toyed with a Leek last week at the range.... Very nice, dressed in all black. It'll probably replace my "Brand-X" but damn solid thumb-opener next week. And the Leek opens nicely with either hand for off-side carry. It'll also work very well opening UPS boxes from Midway... It's most-likely task...

    My only concern... Slippery when "wet"?

    I have owned several folders over the past few years, Seven or eight spyderco, probably five kershaws (the leeks are very slick), and even a gerber, but by far the best quality folders out there are benchmade. I curently carry a benchmade skirmish, and here in califorina where not everyone can carry a firearm it is a defensive tool. Ive broken three spydreco endura's from droping, the 440 steel they use holds an edge well, but is very brittle. The kershaws use softer steel which will bend before it breaks, but you will be sharpening it after every time you use it to open your bills...Now the Benchmade is just in a whole different catigory peered only by camilus. Titaniun handle, and an S30V steel blade that practicaly opens itself, coupled with the factory lifesharp guarentee, you cant go wrong.

    NEVER buy a cold steel folder...Fixed edges are decent, but still overpriced

    I was talked into a Benchmade over various other choices, and have gotta say, i'm incredibly impressed. I cant say its for self defence, I cant say I carry it at all, but it is the most portable, versitile knife i've ever owned, but i'm a collector of sorts, so i'm sure i'll come across better.

    Now you tell me lol. Actually the knife gets used every single day by me. And I mean USED. Hammer, pry bar, beer opener, steak cutter, box opener, etc. I like the action and the way it locks. I have no fears there. Just a bit more than i should have paid for it. Ahh well.
