    why not assemble your own? blade, scales, guards can all be bought pre-shaped.

    Slick dogtag knife. I'd even wear that riding if it was engraved with the phone number of my bail bondsman ;)

I didn't find the knife, instead passed out on the dashboard and was pulled out by paramedics who happened to be eating breakfast at the diner. I don't know if I would have been able to do it, don't know if it would have saved me, but then again, Who says you won't get into a knife fight at the office?

    Think of it as a mat knife.

    Got a new knife this week from a local semi custom guy called 3 sisters forge. This is hands down the best folder I've ever had. 6/4 ti frames, frame lock, nice smooth lock up and rock solid. It's a bit bulky in the pocket but it feels great in the hand. The texture is carved with the water jet that then cuts the handle, pretty cool.

    Game set and match. Case were always the knife I thought of. Curiously, I got my wife one for her birthday so I guess you could say Gentleperson's knife.

    I buy a new Case every few months and pass the old ones down to the boys. I started with Canoes and then the Case Russlock and now the Drop Point Russlock. I think for the money, the Russlock is a hard knife to beat.

    Right on. There are a raft of old case pocket knives on ebay for short money. They make great gifts.

    I've had two Benchmade 710 Axis locks in the past 18 years and haven't found another knife that I like as much. I lost the first one to a LEO in Rocky Mount, NC in 1999 and I hope he's still using it.

    Thread bump...my family chipped in and got me this for a first father's day gift. Chris Reeve Sebenza 21. It definitely falls into the category of things made nicer than they need to be.

    I've been carrying dad's Buck 501 with rosewood handles. This is a stock picture below, my phone is on charger so...

    I've never not carried a small folding knife and can't imagine not having one.

    The Benchmade with Axis lock and Sebenza are as mentioned by others two things made way way nicer than they need to be.

    Favorite way to maintain the edge on all my pocket knives is a DMT W250FCNB 10-inch DuoSharp Bench Stone Fine / Coarse and a real deal Arkansas stone (soft).

    I just gave my last knife to one of my kids so it's time for another. I really like the Case Russlock knife and now that it's made in a drop point its a little better looking. I've got one on the way.

    I recently put a Victorinox classic in my glove box, there is a reason it has been a classic so long.



    Although if the blade were a smidge thicker it would feel more manly.

    Having a Victornox is the kind thing to do so that someone else can liberate it for their needs. The silly things seem to eternally float into and out of my life.
