Thanks in advance!

 

PS, I don't dress CM very often, I just have a basic tactical black kershaw that works great for my needs. Looks fine with jeans and I like the wear marks it's putting in my gustins haha.

I wish I could be more helpful but my experience is very limited. However I think it would be rather helpful if you were to tell us a bit more about the type of knife you were looking for, purpose and budget. Also if you were thinking strictly production knife, midtech, or custom.

Oh like I said, it would actually be for estate sale shopping. Just wondering what are some general signs of quality, or some brands to look out for. I am happy with my kershaw for my personal collection.

Yes unfortunately a little out of my league. Hopefully someone will pop in and be able to be of some help. I might also suggest checking out one of the knife forums such as BladeForums as you might be able to get some helpful knowledge there.

I really want a Richard Rogers "Sarpy, Shorty, or Chunky" looks just like a pen when in shirt pocket lol

His other offerings are nice too but the Sharpy series is just so unique!

Made a trade for a Rogers Chuby in carbon with bearing (new style) this weekend. Had been searching for two years and am on his back log list.

Traded a Nell ESG custom that just got in Decemeber for it. Oh well. I waited on the ESG for nearly a year and now it's gone before I even carried it.

Congrats!!

I look forward to seeing some pictures when you actually get it.

I tend to agree with this. A multi-tool makes sense. Not just a knife.

Multi tools tend to be a little more bulky to carry in a pocket.  I use a true small knife for opening the occasional box, cutting a rope/plastic, etc.  I couldnt imagine carrying anything much larger than it is in my actual pocket.

There are some very small multi-tools on the market. Ones that a doubt would take up much more space then your knife, maybe even less depending on what model you are talking about.

i like knives but don't carry them much. Multi tool has been a life saver in car problems or whatever situations. got the below as a present and been using it for years now. I know its nothing crazy like in this thread but its reliable.

post #88 of 97
Yeah I carry a small multi-tool in my bag. Can't say I use it much, but it's good to have around if I need it.

I have had this on my keys for several years now and use it all the time:

The nice thing about the smaller Leatherman Multi Tools is there are people who refurbish them and sell them super cheap on Ebay. I've bought a few over time and never had issue with any of them. They come tightened up, oiled and sharpened. It's great for having a spare or being able to leave one in your car for emergency use.
