    I have been carrying my Seamus knives Cracked Uber, since it's arrival, and rides in my right front pocket. My Kershaw Cryo has been in my left front pocket. My Strider Dog Paws PT CC ALWAYS rides with me in my wallet.

    A Strider PT in your wallet ....Really! You must always be sitting at an angle? I'm not sure even George Costanza could pull that off?

    Hi!

    Here are two of my favorites from the couple of knives that I have kept over time.

    Folding knife, locking, (damascus blade, mammoth ivory, MOP inlays in the back) made by late Master-Smith Hugh Edward Bartrug, may he R.I.P. This knife was featured in the Jim Weyer book series: "Knives: Points of interest".



    And a Scagel style backlock folding knife (forged carbon steel blade, jigged bone, ag arrowhead) made by Journeyman-Smith Mace Vitale.



    ___


    These are re-posts from the Knife & Light thread and one new picture.







    Flashlight by "Mac's Customs" it's one of the "unique Surefire's". Custom knife by German knifemaker D. Hoelter (damascus/ san mai technique, mammoth ivory, brown mallee). Hawk by ATC.





    Older Surefire E1B, "Unique Surefire" by "Mac's Customs". Strider Knives SnG, Spartan Blades Enyo, ATC Hawk.


    Lot's of memories attached to quite a bit of that stuff.

    Kind regards,
    Oliver

    One more more recent and one I particularly like.

    The remake of the classic Scout Knife by Prometheus Design Werx. The limited edition DRB Scout Knife. Again with my trusty Surefire E1B.

    Favorite EDC - Kershaw Knockout - I have three. The original black aluminum handles w stonewashed blade, the brown aluminum handled ELMAX blade, and the olive green aluminum handled Damascus blade. Big enough, light enough for everyday carry, snappy assisted action, thumb studs or flipper tab, good clip, frame lock, and USA made. Whats not to like? At $50 to a hundred bucks I can drop this on the ground and step on it without a care. Try THAT with your Fischer Custom!

    I wish Kershaw offered more of their knives with premium blade steel options. I just picked up a Leek with the D2 composite blade and stonewash finish. It's a steal at under $80.

    For many years I carried a CRKT Komodo Gold tanto 4" blade that I bought in about 1995. Made in Taiwan and worked great! Easy to sharpen to shaving-sharp, held an edge fairly well, and had rubbery handle sides so it was hand-filling but not too heavy and fairly comfortable in a pocket. Eventually I realized that it was illegal to carry due to blade length and retired it from EDC. A wonderful knife if you can find one and it is legal where you live.

    Tried several of the then-current CRKT knives around 3" blade length and found them all to be crap (this was around 2010). Finally bit the bullet and bought a Benchmade Mini-griptillian tanto, which was slick, and I liked that it was indisputably within the legal blade length, but it has a few drawbacks: 1. A little too small for my comfort in handling. (I have big, clumsy hands.) 2. Pricey enough that I don't love worrying about losing it in EDC. 3. Blade bevel angle seems a little too thick. I can get it fairly sharp, but not nearly as slicey as my old Komodo, and it doesn't hold an edge all that well.

    Early this year I bit on a $12 sale price on an LA Police Gear Rescue EDC 3.4" tanto. It's too lumpy and heavy for in-pocket EDC (IMHO) but is OK clipped in the top of my back pocket. I can't get it quite as sharp as the Komodo, but it will shave hair off my arm. Edge holding is a little better than the Benchmade (sorry fanboys!) It flips open pretty easily and reliably with the bump on the back of the blade. And, of course, even at the regular price of $16, it's virtually disposable. The only thing I don't like about it (other than the political and labor implications of buying cheap Chinese goods) is that it's nominally within the legal size limit for my city, but it's close enough that a cranky cop might choose to believe otherwise.

    My EDC knife is on a rotation that favors my PM2, G10 Manix 2, and Sage 5. They are all great knives to carry. Spyderco knives are my favorite to collect. I do aspire to own a Large Sebenza. I believe that will be my next knife purchase.

    —-My EDC flashlight 100% of the time is an Eagle Tac Titanium D25C with Nichia 219 LED.

    Not really that much into knives as I live in the city but I recently bought a Kershaw Leek to add to my very modest EDC knife rotation. Found it to be really small, handy and very well-made. Excellent fit and finish

    Having said that though, there's really something about the Buck Spitfire that makes me want to carry it more. Love the color and finish on it. The action is butter-smooth and I can deploy it almost as fast as I can deploy the Leek. This knife really deserves better reviews, I feel that it's one of the most underrated knives out there.

    The Ganzo was an impulse buy, a beater knife of sorts. So if I need to cut something and I'm worried about my knife breaking, that's what I use

    And that Pocket Monkey comes in really handy when the situation calls for it

    I've been carrying a Victorinox Explorer for the last several years. I bought it on Ebay years ago for like $7 since it was damaged, but a couple minutes with a file and I was able to get everything working on it. The scissors have some nicks, but they still work. That's the only thing that bothers me about it.

    I keep thinking that I should buy a new, undamaged, Explorer, but this one works fine so I have trouble pulling the trigger.

    The majority of the time it's a Victorinox Super Tinker, but on occasion a Spyderco Native 5 or Ontario Rat 1.

    I don't own a lot of knives. I would usually edc a small knife like one of my Leeks or a Shuffle II. But I just got this today, so this'll be my edc for quite a long time. After days of deciding between this and the BM Osborne 940-2...

    With a choice like that, BM Osborne or Spyderco Paramilitary, you couldn't go wrong! Congrats on a nice knife.

    I've got a good number of fancier and more expensive knives, but have found that for EDC and utility, the Spyderco Tenacious serves superbly well and given its fairly modest price point, there are no worries with regard to losing or damaging the knife. That a win-win in my book.

    Many thanks, Bob! It's my first expensive knife and it truly was tough picking between the two. The BM 940-2 really is a great knife but the PM2 just sang to me... if that makes any sense
