Pocket knives, anybody into them?

  • For work, I carry a Benchmade 915 triage. Great knife for my type of work. The hook cuts thru seat belts and cloths like butter. The little point on the left side of the closed knife is a window punch.

    This one retails well over $200 but with a quick search it can be found for bout $150 shipped.

  • For every day pocket carry, I love my Seahawks blue Case trifold. Small, and yet useful and durable as hell.

    If I'm out camping/hiking/hunting/fishing, I prefer one of several CRKT lockblades I picked up in the 'Stan. A couple I've wanted to find back home and get another one for a friend, but I can't find 'em. Absolutely incredible knives.

    Edit: this is one of them: http://www.crkt.com/M16-14-Z-Desert-Spe ... Combo-Edge

  • I just carry this every day, a Spyderco Tenacious Black G-10. I'm not a big knife guy, though I do love throwing knives; haven't been able to play with them since I don't have a target nowadays.

    The city of Seattle has absurdly restrictive knife carrying laws. I wanted something I could carry anywhere around the state, so no fixed blade (even a 1" fixed blade is illegal to carry in Seattle) and 3.5" max blade length on a folder. To be honest, I don't want to spend good money on a knife if I can't have more my own choice of what to carry. I love how you can get a permit to carry a Smith & Wesson .500 Magnum that would blow Arnold Schwarzenegger in half all around Seattle, but a 1" fixed blade on a key chain is illegal. :roll:

  • Yea Ro that does seems like overkill.
    I too like spyderco knives. I have several of them.

    Edit: somebody should show the people that make those rules a video of what an inmate can do with a sharpened piece of plastic.
    Just remembered this ain't PWR, sorry.

  • I have several Spyderco knives. I have an old G10 Harpy that I carried for years. Total PITA to sharpen but I love that knife. Spyderco quit making it so I retired it. Had a nice Spyderco Spyderwrench until some little bastard broke into my car and took it. Now my daily carry is a SOG Vulcan VL-01. Big beefy 3.5inch blade and a cinch to sharpen! My next one will be the VL-03 Tanto.

  • I carry one of these religiously. I have use for the blades most of the time. If the driver dont fit the flat the blade may. Of course when I was still in, we were issued a Leatherman. While hunting, that blade came in handy skinning an elk.

  • I had one of those tiny keychain 1" swiss army joints with the tweezer and the tooth pick and the scissor but the last time I rode Greyhound they told me I couldn't ride with it and confiscated it. True bill.

  • One of my mountain biking buddies in Arizona makes folding knives. Insanely expensive work of art folding knives.

    http://rickgenoveseknives.com

    I would never carry one of those, because it is my destiny to lose each and every pocket knife I acquire. Right now I have an interesting little folding knife that uses replaceable scalpel blades.

  • Being a farmer, I have owned and trashed too many pocket knives to count. Handiest gizmo ever for me is, a hooked linoleum blade a flooring guy walked off and left. Used my grandpa's circa 1920 rotating whetstone and put an edge on the full inside of the hook. Keep it in an old soft side reading glass pocket case. A bit hard to sharpen, but holds an edge damn near forever.

    Friends used that scalpel blade-type last year hunting and skinning elk/deer. Easy and fast to take care of. I am gonna look into a knife a friend has that they send it to have it sharpened free of charge. Knife is a 100 to 150 dollar model.

  • As part of my kung-fu training, I had to become proficient with Spyderco serrated-edge knives. They slice through leather jackets better than regular-edge blades. So, that's what I carry when I do.

  • I bought one of these at a shop in the pike place market about 15 years ago and I still keep it handy. If I don't know where it is I become very unsettled, that's how attached I've become to it.

  • One of my clients was an enormous Benchmade fan so after our project he sent me a 908 Axis (all black). Always have a knife ready in my car, and this one quickly replaced the oneI had used. 3.5" blade, awesome build quality.

    For overall quality, off the shelf, it's hard to beat Benchmade. They can be pricey but IMO this is a case of getting what you pay for.

  • Absolutely, best knife I've ever owned and I've always had decent ones (an old SOG) but it had nothing on the Benchmade.

    I don't use it a lot, it's mostly in my car for emergencies/self defense but I love the grip and build quality. It just feels like someone actually gave a s***.

  • Found out what knife they like a lot for hunting. Cutco knife. I may get one sometime either this year or maybe next.
