Plain old two blade "Uncle Henry", skins deer, guts fish...
And I can use it to cut a seat belt if I come upon a wreck or get into one...

ah the schrade uncle henry. that's a classic. i have one somewhere. I also have a folding "buck" knife too. I gutted countless animals with that. That was a staple before all these fancy knives came out. I now use my browing fdt 3blade for hunting.

I've been carrying one of these http://www.kershawknives.com/product...&brand=kershaw for several years now. Great small knife for work, opening packages and the like.

Kim and I bought a Spyderco Native for Kim's sister when she returned from Iraq. She had lost another Spyderco while away. I liked it so much I almost kept it. Made in Golden too.

Wes, my name is Drew and I have a pocket knife problem. In fact, cruisers and knives are my hobbies.

For $100 bucks I would find a Benchmade 940 or 943... you might need to get one off the BM forum for that price. Its hands down my favorite EDC knife.

It weighs practically nothing, high quality american powder steel S30V (this is a hot rod USA blade steel), axis lock, 100% metal (aluminum handles, high grade blade steel and anodized titanium backspacer) and 100% made in the USA. Its uber fast, one hand open, one hand close. The axis lock and the fact that they are all made in the USA makes me a huge fan of the BM brand.

It would be the last knife I'd let go.

The 940 is green with a modified sheeps foot blade.


The 943 (mine) is a standard drop point with black handles.


The Griptilian is a steel at $60ish bucks, go for the 154cm blade steel. Again, made in the USA.

FWIW, www.knifeworks.com has the best prices in the biz.

+1 on the Benchmade 940 / 943. I got a 940 as a gift, and it's definitely my favorite pocket knife. The ergonomics and weight are perfect, in my hands anyway. They're a bit over $100 used though.

Hey Martin, they didn't lose it in the desert in southern Arizona, south of Tucson did they? I found one that looks like that down here.
Wouldn't it be wild if it was the same one? Terry

Lucky you! That's an awesome find.

Nope, she lost hers because she was carrying it when she went to the airport on leave.

My favorite is the Emerson CQC-7. I have carried it since the mid 90's.
Emerson is by far my favorite folder. They are a bit pricey but you get what you pay for.
