What is your favorite knife; that you actually carry on a regular basis?
Many men and women, from all walks of life, carry knives on a daily basis; and everybody that carries a knife has a favorite.
My favorite knife is the Victorinox Swiss Champ; but lately my EDC knife has been the Victorinox EvoGrip S17, because it is much easier to carry, and has a locking blade.
Mine's a Kershaw. I guess the locking blade is five or six inches. The lower part of the blade is serrated so it can cut through rope, etc. I can flick the blade out fast as imaginable, and it holds an edge really well. Good steel.
Kershaw is a good brand. I have been wanting to get a Kershaw Blur. It looks pretty sweet.
Pawn shops are the places I like to shop for knives. Folks spend for knives when they have plenty of cash, but like jewelry, knives are some of the first things they'll hock at the pawn shop when they get desperate. Not that I like to see people hocking things, but I do like paying very little for nice things.
Mine is the Leatherman crater. I use it a lot at work. As a back-up I carry an Opinel no 6.
I have a Gerber pocketknife, an uncle henry folding belt knife, and a russell-dexter 12 inch fillet knife in the kitchen.. other knives include my parker brand stainless steel skinning knife. Sure I have a gerber multi tool, and maybe a small swiss folding knife in my bedroom junk box.
I have been wanting to pick up. couple of the older style knives, like Uncle Henry and Old Timers.
They aren't tacticool, but the make you feel all gentlemanly when you pull one out.
Working on the family farm my entire life I've had numerous good quality knives over the years. I've also worn a Leatherman multitool on my belt for several decades. The Leatherman has an excellent knife as well as a handy little saw if needed. This tool has saved me much time by not having to search for pliers or screwdrivers. I have a good collection of different pocket knives which I choose to carry according to my particular task.
Have you thought about the Victorinox Farmer or Pioneer?
I have been thinking about getting one or the other.
They are supposed to be more geared towards farm/outdoors type people.
I had three. I gave one to my younger brother so he'd have one of his grandfather's knives. I kinda felt bad for having possession of all three of grandpa's good pocket knives. Old Timers. There is an Old Henry, but my dad has that one. I'm happy to wait many more years to get that one.
The crater is a good knife. It is basically Leatherman's version of an assisted opening Victorinox. It had extra tools and pretty hardworking too.
