I've had my old SOG Flash II for 5+ years, It's a fantastic knife, clips easily into my pocket and is functional immediately after drawing. But it was out of work the other day. Now I have to move on to a new one. I've just looked into this Pocket Knife. Is it nice one to go with? Will I be disappointed? Any other options?
I'm sure there are plenty of other pocket knife peeps out there, what do you carry and why?

Have you looked into "benchmade" nice knives.
Also of course cold steel makes fantastic weapons,like my 8"recon Tanto
And SOG has a nice selection.. My everyday carry is the
Combat Elite Knives 05SP Standard Blade Assisted Opener (RRF) Rapid Response Folder Linerlock Knife
$385.00 on sale. She won't let you down.

Had this for about year, no complaints, works great as a ranger blade.

Long blade for skinning or harvesting, long saw for camp pruncing, sharp claw for clawing things or opening cans, cork screw, leather stitch, bottle opener.

Its a good man-knife, and the price is right.

Good post op. I love knives
personaly I carry a Gerber Evo Tanto knife. It is all black, has a quick open notch that can be flipped open with your finger, the blade is constructed from surgical steel and the handle is made from anodized aluminum. The anodized aluminum handle makes it super light and most people that pick up my knife think the handle is some kind of plastic, but it is not.



There are other Gerber Evos with out the tanto tip and they are made the exact same. I really like these knives they are sharp and will last a long time. I have put the tip into metal and carved with it and it did not mess the tip of the blade up at all. This knife is not terribley expensive, as you should be able to get a Evo knife for around $20-25 or cheaper if you look on ebay. They come in a few different sizes and it comes with a limited lifetime warranty. All in all I really like Gerbers products they have some great tools and survival knives, the LMF II. Also always remember when buying a knife to check the quality of the blade you are buying, because those with less carbon in the blade do not keep their edge as long.

I still like your basic Leatherman Multi-Tool. It's simple, sturdy, has pretty much everything I need. Accept no cheap imitations.

The only thing is that it gets a little slippery when wet. It's not that much of a problem, but I was thinking about putting on a good texture coat of some kind. Maybe one of these days.

I carry a Smith & Wesson ExtremeOps 4" black locking blade. It has a quick release button that can be used with either hand. The back 2" is cereated to cut wire or anything it comes in contact with. The edge stays sharp a very long time also.

Since 2005 I've been carrying a Gerber Guardian Backup knife.




It's small, costs under 50 bucks and attaches pretty much anywhere you need it to. It's kept up just fine, haven't sharpened it once since I got it.

In days past, I would recommend a decent grade of knife, something you can have some pride in carrying. My last three have been German Puma models. The first two, over a period of about twenty years eventually disappeared. The last one, I have in front of me know is a Puma Hobbytech. Its locking spring broke a couple of months ago is now it is just junk and not that old either.

In today's world, you better have a cheap knife that simply suits your needs. It's main purpose will be for opening taped boxes and cutting string. You can pretty much forget ever having to use it for self protection or amputating a finger. Also, forget a belt-sheathed but legal length straight knife that are legel in some states. They display an attitude that you may not want back up.

I say "cheap" knife because sooner or later you will be forced to give it up. A visit to a federal building won't get you past security at the outside front door. Or maybe forgetting to remove it when going for a flight. There are many others ways to have it taken from you and never returned because it got "lost" also. And unless you religiously make it an absolute rule to put it away when you have it out for some task, you will eventually loose it yourself.

The good news is there are plenty of decent knives on the market without splurging for an expensive one. I have my father's old pocket knife, but I won't carry it because it has too much sentimental value. Lose a cheap one, and you won't mourn its loss for long.

I use a KA-BAR when camping, & a Spyderco Pacific Salt for everyday use. The KA-BAR is ex-navy, it's pretty rusty but it does its job. The Spyderco is made out of H1 steel, so it does not rust. Period. It's a nice blade, it holds its edge very well. But it'll run you $100.

As far as my daily carry, I have a kershaw speed bump. It is a spring assist knife that has a safety switch. Take the safety off and it opens almost just by looking at it.

I love this knife.

And when necessary, my SOG SEAL.

Swiss Army knife. Not some macho machete. It has a bottle opener, a cork screw and a tooth pick. Suits me.
