Mine would have to be the SERE 2000 by Al Mar. Yes its very pricey but mine was a gift. If I had the money I would buy a Rockstead. They are probably the best blades ever made in my opinion. Theres a video on youtube showing over 700 cuts of 1 inch hemp rope and it still shaves paper!!!!

I have hundreds of knives but one that I keep in my BOB is a cold steel "Twister" made with their carbon V steel and is beyond razor sharp. I also have a special place in my heart for Old Timers with carbon steel blades. I have 20 or so and have to say they have never failed me or my Dad. He carried them his entire life and my first knife was one of his hand-me-downs. I even have a dozen or so of Walmart's dollar knives to "lend" to people when I get tired of them always wanting me to let them use my pocket knife. I have several of the old time Boy Scout knives and even if it isn't sexy these days you will never regret a good Victorinox Swiss Army knife. I have several Kershaws and that was my EDC until I got this leatherman I carry now. I am from the generation where ALL adult men carried knives at all times and even have a few very pretty "Dress" knives with mother of pearl handles and such that I carried when I went to church and such. To me a man that doesn't carry a knife is a little disturbing.

Under $40 bucks huh? Guess that's be my old everyday beater, Browning Medium Mountain TI.

If I lose it, I've not lost much. $25 or $30 bucks.

 

However, my favorite pocket knives are my good old "Made in the USA" Benchmades.

551 plain edge Griptilian and a little Aphid they don't make anymore.

I'm brand new to pocket knives and this forum. I own 4 folding knives and all are well under the $40 dollar limit. I also own a cheap multitool.

 

My two favorite edc knives are the buck redpoint and a stanley quickslide sport. I really love the quickslide the most since it has a utility knife which is always sharp since I can change blades and has a pretty cool combo blade. The biggest gripe I have with the Stanley is the lack of a pocket clip. I keep it in a belt pouch meant for a Sheffield pocket knife. The redpoint is just a great light knife that has in my opinion the coolest opening function and is just a convenient knife.

 

Hopefully I will step up to a four inch blade for the car since all my knives are three and a quarter inch or less.

Wordsthoughts,

Welcome to the sites.

While I have nothing against inexpensive anything, be very careful with "CHEAP" things that can hurt you! Sometimes cheap is not inexpensive (I've spent a lot of money on some 'cheap' knives:mad:) but the point is, a cheap paperclip may cause a batch of papers to scatter while a cheap knife can get you seriously hurt. I try to have rugged known tools if I think I may have to play 'you bet your life' with one. I had some cheap multitools once; now I have Leatherman!

 

Inexpensive is always good to have as long as it is well made enough to do the job.

 

Just my not so humble opinion.

Thanks, for the welcome.

 

I agree with your comment on cheap items especially knives. What's your opinion on the Buck redpoint and the Stanley quickslide sport? My other 2 knives are a smith&wesson swat knife and a Sheffield wood handle model. To me as an edc the Stanley is great because of the 2 in 1 feature and the grip both way is great. The redpoint Is just so light and cool especially the opening feature.

 

I will get a gerber suspension but the multitool I have is a husky/ home depot with decent quality and metal. I've seen way cheaper for more. Which leatherman do you have? Do you carry that and a knife? Which one?

 

Thanks!

My open assist smith and wesson knife is really the only pocket knife i would trust to use. Its been put through some testing, and done fine. I would take my full tang over itthiugh, anyday. Wide enough for skinning, good enough to use as a weapon, and can prob make some kindling with it too.

    • Hey all, This is sort of cool (okay really cool) and maybe some of you have heard about it because it's been plastered over FOX and mentioned by POTUS as well as other conservative-leaning news people (Huckabee, Diamond/Silk, Candace Owens, Mark Levin, etc..) and politicians. #walkaway is a movement based mostly on social media. Started last year, by Brandon Straka (pronounced Strawk - like "straw" with a "k"). He's a former 2016 HRC-voting hair stylist, from NE, now in NYC, homosexual, liberal who began to question the MSM and what he was hearing. He got really frustrated as he began to do his own research. Anyway, after having his own awakening to the lies of MSM he had been following, he began an online testimonial campaign in which former liberals can post their #walkaway stories, written or video. Many are now on the "Trump Train." Many have simply left the Left. Still, others have always been non-Left and are members in support. The amazing thing is how many different people from all walks of life are beginning to wake up. Lots are not conservative on all issues, but all have a love for the USA and dislike the demonization of open political and social thinkers and speakers. This group gives solace to people scared to voice their conservative opinions or views for fear of negative professional or personal responses. It now has budding smaller groups in all 50 states and an online discussion group where people discuss current topics or issues (WITH no vitriol, gasp).  Here's the original video from Brandon.  www.youtube.com/watch?v=51UGcghHZsk This man, Brandon has a unique, stylish, well-articulated voice to help move people "in hiding" out into the open and not be silenced. Pretty much any video Brandon does is great. Here is the Facebook page: www.facebook.com/groups/OFFICIALwalkawaycampaign/ As I see fights erupt online, I simply leave #walkaway in the comments. Brandon has a goal of 1 million members! The liberal media has called this campaign "Russian Bots" and "paid actors." It's not!!!        
    • thanks to all who  have served or are serving our great country....243 years in the making....   Trump did a good job today thanking each branch of our military and a long time coming salute to the coast guard too....
    • I can imagine food prices going up this Fall or Winter. Corn is used for live stock feed, & us humans consume a lot of corn based products, as well as corn based biofuel. I’ve been keeping a watchful eye on the mid-west of America, which is flooded by water. Where corn  & other crops are normally grown there. Farmers are quite worried about this years growing season. Time to stock up on extra food if you can, if you haven’t already. Stack it high, stack it deep. Store the foods that you normally eat. What ever the  amount of food you’ve stored,  try to double it if possible. Better extra safe, than sorry.
