I carry a good ol' leatherman skeletool CX with the 154CM blade for EDC. My Survival/combat knives come from a crazy old indian from Oklahoma. He
builds them out of "junk" he finds at industrial surplus outlets. He doesn't charge for his work. If he likes you he will make you a knife. If you
pester him he'll cut you. If he really likes you he will keep sending you a knife about once every four or five years.
He makes them out of all sorts of things, but mostly car leaf springs. They're indestructable. I asked him for a "pretty" knife one time, and he
made me a nice 4" tanto blade from some high carbon steel he dug up somewhere, and found some italian briar for the handle. I'm not sure where the
guard came from, but it looked high tech indutrial, and was titanium, or tungsten I think becasue he said he could even scratch it, much less cut it.
The thing was gorgeous. A few years back some thug smashed my car window for it. I hope he cuts his nuts off with it.
