Have a CRKT folder 3" blade or so. Love that knife, so it's in my pocket almost anywhere I go.. Has a double safety lock on it, and has saved my
fingers from accidental closure on too many occasions. Great tool to have in the inventory in my opinion. Cutting rope, cleaning fingernails, prying
someones cold dead fingers from their gun (hehe).
My favorite fixed blade is one my bro got for me for christmas 4 or 5 years back. SOG Seal w/ kydex sheath. Probably the best weight and just right
leverage that I've come across. Need another fixed blade one of these days for superior skinning of animal hides and for fleshing, so I'm gonna
have to bite the bullet and get one without the serrated.
But I don't know how many times my little pocket knife has come in hand. Like one day I was driving dirt roads out in the middle of nowhere. Got a
second flat, and before I lost all air, I had the ingenuity to grab a piece of brush (no trees out this way) and whittle a plug to shove in it. Plug
was so good, the air held for a solid week, hehe. Without a sharp tool, I woulda been pretty royally screwed, not a lot of cell service in this
region, and not a lot of travelers on roads that go nowhere.
