    what knife

    I notice that a lot of guys who carry guns carry a folding knife. Its not so much for defense as a tool. I am curious, what brand do you like. Obviously I haven’t listed ALL of them, just the top 10 I could think of.

    I carry an AL-Mar Eagle Ultralite most days, as it is very light and thin. I wear business casual here at work and it carries well in dress pants. I usually carry a Microtec UDT in my jeans, and a CRKT M16 when camping, hiking, hunting etc (complimented by a sheathe knife).

    Used to carry a Gerber up until a couple months ago when my mother's husband gave me a Sheffield he found while out walking. I like the blade a lot better and can get it open with the flick of my thumb.

    Right now, I've got a Leatherman Tool on my belt and a Swiss Army knife in my pocket. The Leatherman has the pliers, and the Swiss Army has the cork screw. Don't leave home without em!

    Unless I'm going to be tinkering, I usually only carry the Swiss Army knife.

    Kershaw Whirlwind when I'm not at work, and either a Leatherman or my Gerber Clutch (the Clutch is so small, I always have it in my pocket).

    $5 no name/made in China knife at work, along with my work issued Leatherman (1 of about 4 I've gotten from work).

    I always have my Uncle Henry 3 blade general purpose pocket knife with me. If hunting I will also have a Buck folder on my belt. If Elk hunting I will have a home made 8" heavy knife for cutting through bone etc. in the truck or my pack.

    None of them are intended for Delf Defense.

    Ken Onion Leek. Great assisted opener; a few complains though: I miss the rubber grips my Gerber had. And the straight blade is less functional than a tradional curved blade. The assisted opening is amazing!!

    I carry a leatherman during the week and I carry a folding type razor knife that looks like a regular pocket knife all the time. I got tired of breaking the tips off of regular pocket knives and buying new ones. Funny how things go! I've yet to break one of the razor blades but I do dull the hell out of them. It's actually a pretty cool knife. It's like an un-sprung switch blade in that you can flick your wrest and the blade is out and locked.

    I think I've always carried a pocket knife since I was a kid. I've owned all thicknesses of swiss army knives and carried a cheapo "made in China" knife up until a couple months ago. But now I have a Kershaw Ken Onion Leek with the black and white smoked handle. I love it. The only problem is it's almost too pretty to actually use.

    I started carrying a CRKT M16 in my pocket on a near daily basis last summer. Now I just wish I was able to put a decent edge on it.

    Benchmade Dejavoo. No spring to assist, just a flick of the wrist.

    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.

    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!!
