pocket knives - Page 5

post #61 of 85
Putting one of those small, thumbsize Swiss Army knives on my keys was maybe the possibly $5 I ever spent. I use the little scissors a couple times a week at least. There are tons of TSA-forfeited knives on ebay for pocket change.

I carry one of those little victorinox pocket knives in my wallet. I've had teachers borrow it at school, I've carried it past security checkpoints by accident, x ray detectors don't see knives very well when they're behind a full change pocket. Incredibly useful little thing.

I have a few others, but don't carry the bigger ones on a day to day basis. And nothing really fancy, though I might go for something like that someday.

I have one of these beauties as an EDC. I admit, I bought it because it looks great but I'll be damned if it doesnt work like crazy too!

I have a few 4" Gerber folders and a fixed-blade Benchmade.

What's a nice cheapo every day carry type of knife for me? I don't know how much these things cost but the cheaper the better. I live in California and I don't wanna break the law.

Anything in the "Gentleman's Folder" range should be legal to carry. I carry a vintage Buck daily.

I prefer the Spyderco Delica/Endura folders, which retail for around $50-60. The Endura has a four inch blade; the Delica has a three inch blade.

If you want something cheaper, a Kershaw Ken Onion Leek folder is only $36 (shipped). It also has a three inch blade.

I don't know CA law so you may want to check as to legality.

I've carrid the same Eye-Brand for 10 years and Case knives all through high school. On a certain college agriculture trip to Scotland and Ireland it was funny to watch 20 guys all reach into their pocket and put their knives into their checked bags moments before they were checked and then the first thing done just after customs was to reach into the bag, grab the knife and put it back in the pocket.

It's like wearing a watch, things just don't seem right without having a pocket knife with me.

I know nothing about knives, however, Im looking for a smaller EDC knife. Thoughts on the CRKT Delegate?

Just my two cents, but I think CRKT quality leaves a lot to be desired. A CRKT and its crappy liner lock design was responsible for three stitches in my thumb. I don't know the price of the one pictured, but there are quality US built knives under $100 to be had. Check out the Kershaw Blur.

CRKT blows pretty hard. Kershaw is a lot of design over function for the price, but this isn't a bad rec. Look in to the Byrd series of knives. Don't get one in FRN. The materials feels like crap in hand. Go for G10 If you want an attractive knife look for a Benchmade (I wouldn't own one outside of a balisong as they're overpriced, but they looked fucking beautiful and have great fit and finish). Your best bang for the money on the sub $40 range will be a Buck. Over $40 you can't beat a Spyderco, though they're ugly as sin. Edit: Boker offers some good value knives as well.

I use a SOG Trident for EDC, and I'd like something different. I like the Spyderco Harpy but I want something plain-edged or only half-serrated. Also It has to fold I don't like fixed blades. Reccomendations? Pic is the harpy if you don't care to Google.

The type of knife you're looking for is a hawkbill knife. Give a few for specs on what you want and I may be able to point you in the right direction. Here's a Byrd Crossbill in G10: http://www.osograndeknives.com/spyde...-PlainEdge.htm Stainless: http://www.amazon.com/Byrd-Crossbill.../dp/B001AXFVSM
