    I love my Sebenza. Actually I have a love/hate relationship with it because it's such a great knife... on one hand it is wonderful to carry and use, on the other hand it means my other (really great) knives get so little playtime.

    I agree with you that the Spyderco Tenacious is an excellent value but I will have to disagree that the serrated edge is better for bushcrafting as it is harder to carve with the chisel ground serrations (or any serrations for that matter). I think you will find that the Tenacious should hold a great edge even when beating the heck out of it... I have never had to resharpen a knife in the field, and don't intend to ever have to. Spyderco is definitely my favorite brand as well, and I have spent an absurd amount of money exploring Spyderco's great selection of knives. Personally my favorite Spyderco for the outdoors is the Military or Paramilitary, and for urban use my favorite is the Caly 3 CF/ZDP.

    I too love Moras... the knives are amazing, extremely inexpensive and great performers, my top choice for woodwork. The stock sheaths are terrible but better than nothing, so I recommend asking your sheathmaker of choice to make you a nice leather or kydex replacement.

    Bonus points if you can name all the knives my hiking buddies and I took on a recent daytrip...

    I'm a SOG collector, in a small way- has to be a model I particularly like. For folders, I really liked the Air Sog and when they still made them I bought 3, with 2 different edges. They had a level of quality not seen anymore- heartbreaking to think they were designed to be legal on airlines. I started carrying a SOG Trident when they came out, a slightly larger knife but I like the cord-cutting notch thing, and the assisted opening is cool. Someday I may go back to the Air model for EDC, but losing one is worring since they can't be replaced. Most anything by SOG is very good to excellent, but I'm worried about their leaving Japan manufactor.

    Knife wise , my present go to's are one or other of my Alox vic's. and/or my new Vic. 09 OH Soldier . I rarely cary dedicated locking folders anymore , as their capabilities are so limited comparted to SAK's and Multis . By and Large they just aren't worth the weight penalty .

    The one Tactical that i would never give up is My Strider PT . I only carry iot for heavyduty outdoor use nowadays .

    Carrot,

    Do you have the large Sebenza as well ?
    Just wondering what your thoughts would be on the size difference
    for EDC.

    I've been very close to pulling the trigger on one, but am always torn
    on the size difference.

    Hi Kid9P, if you want to handle both you'll have to pester Wade to bring his Large to PF. I have used both and personally prefer the Small, but the Large is wonderful as well. If you are familiar with the Griptilian knives, they are very similar in size to those, but with a slightly more comfortable handle for big hands in both sizes. It's pretty easy to know which size you fit into when you consider the types of knives you usually carry. Don't you carry a Buck Strider? If so, go for the Large.

    Thanks dude,

    I will probably go for the larger Seb.

    As far as that Buck Strider goes, I recently sold it on CPF. Darn thing
    cost me 7 stitches.....
    I carry an XM-18 now.

    XM-18... very nice, I bet that one cost you a pretty penny.

    In any case, the Large is a bit smaller than your XM-18 and a bit thinner. It is easier to carry than that HUGE thing (assuming you got the full-size and not the 3").

    My primary EDC is my Gen 3 Hinderer XM-18. Also in the pic is a TAD/Strider DUK in S110V steel. I try to carry that around whenever I can, but concealed fixed blade carry in CA is illegal. I take it out for hikes and stuff:

    This is my new EDC its a Hinderer Flashpoint neck knife with CPM154 blade steel. I have always liked neck knives and since my pockets were getting to full I decided that a neck knife would work better for me.

    I always have a SAK on me, but of late I've been carrying a Kershaw Skyline. I like a lockblade and this is a better EDC than my BM Griptilian.

    I have around a dozen or so EDC's that I use, and I just pick whatever I'm feeling that day but these three tend to wind up being carried more than the others. I also usually have a SAK tinker with me.

    Persev, you mind if I ask where you got that?

    Like the blade & was not sure I wanted to spring for the folder.

    Very nice.

    Lately it's been an Arno Bernard (South African maker) mini hunter.

    Rest of the time it's usually a Benchmade 440 Opportunist, a Kershaw Onion Splinter or a Benchmade Shoki. Shoki is hiding in a box to a friend.



    The Mini AA is connected to the sheath of the Bernard, like the A3 to the Opportunist.

    All the knives are amazingly light, sturdy & precise feeling.

    Sorry for the overexposure, the grips on the Bernard throw things off a bit for this quickie pic.

    I always carry an Officer's SAK with Plus handles. I also usually carry a Benchmade 705. I will sometimes switch that out with a Kershaw Blur, a Boker Subcom or a CRKT Ichi. I love the Blur but it's usually too much knife for a suit. The Subcom has been getting a lot of attention lately, but the Benchmade is my go to knife.

    This is a stock photo, because after three years mine does not look anywhere near this nice anymore. Plus i have just the plain edge. But my EDC is this Benchmade 2550 Mini-Reflex. Love it. The best auto-opener i have ever owned.

    I got it at www.robertsoncustomcutlery.com I think he still has some in stock. I like it a lot but remember the knife gives up a bit of handle length but for me it still feels good and has a .150 thick blade and is 2 7/8'' long and is very strong and still has good edge geometry. I love carrying this way it frees up my pockets for my light and extra batteries so it works out good for me. Thanks

    Thanks, looks well proportioned & I like having the pockets freed up also.

    Be pretty easy to put some fancy scales on it too....

    Long time lurker and I need to make a couple of posts so that I can view the good deals.

    I carry a Spyderco Native every day. It is easy to keep sharp and I really like the spear point, it is good for digging out splinters. I just wish that the blade was a half inch longer.

    Second post here, I hope this gets me back into the Good Deals.

    In addition to the Spyderco Native I carry a single layer SAK. I use it for cutting tape, for the tooth pick, and tweezers.

    Always have a MiniGrip handy, but don't actually use it all that often. The vast majority of my knife chores are handled with a Cold Steel Tuff Lite on my keychain.

    Currently carry a Benchmade Griptilian and a mini Buck folder for mundane tasks. Use the Buck 100x more than the Griptilian
