I still have my Benchmade Ritter Mini-Griptilian. I have been tempted to get a Chris Reeves Mnandi, but have repeatedly talked myself out of buying one.
I plan on carrying and using these too, but very carefully.

Same here - I don't own any shelf queen, nor care for a knife that I would not use on a regular basis. Still, I do respect those who collect them and never user them.

For larger duty I carry a Benchmade Presidio with custom grips, but I have also lusted for a Mnandi for something smaller - but so far my Small Sebenza does fine

i´m a big fan of good blades i got a few my user is a smith&wessos H.R.T a great combat folder!
the all metal grip lets you keep all the grip you do need even in bloody condition(proven,when fishing!!)

BUT don´t carry a knife if you cant see yourself ass a killer!
its a fact that knifes are more harmful then guns!(ask any one working at a bussy ER)
the best protection your is a brain reddy to talk and act at the best given way!
ok its easy fore me to say whit 8years of boxing and 2,5year of judo traning!

thats just my 2cent!!

I had a Kershaw - Ken Onion chive. It was a wonderful knife but I lost it just like a few others. I finally got tired of losing them and stopped buying them.

I have a Kershaw Shallot. I love it, wonderful assisted opening, and not too small. The chives and leeks are a bit small looking compared to the Shallot, I like it to fit snugly in my hand and have a decent size blade.

This thread makes me smile :]

I found three butterfly knives in my friend's dad's garage and he let me try one out. It just felt awesome; I've since picked up a matching pair of my own, one in black and one in white on my trip to China. Just as a disclaimer, they really are quite dangerous so if it's your first time trying a balisong, definitely try a dulled one at first .'D

^ Tell me about it. Had a friend cut his hand at a knife shop, cos he was an idiot.

Always, ALWAYS buy a trainer and learn to use it proficiently before getting the real thing, or you'll be sorry.

...Just got a brand new Dodo SE...






Mark of perfection IMO

^ Dodo!

I always wanted one (mainly because I like the birds of the same name), but the hiked-up prices always made me shy away from 'em.

I have with me right now:

Spyderco Lava
Spyderco Delica 4 PE [waved]
Spyderco Tasman Salt SE
Benchmade Mini-Rukus CE

Sorry, no pics right now.

Too many to list

One of my favs has to be the Buck 184. Not an EDC but the one I reach for when intruders arrive!



I'll take pictures of the rest soon.
(SOG, Spyderco, Cold Steel, KaBar, Kershaw, KISS, etc.)

I never understood why people associate serrated edges with self-defense/the best to rip through flesh. I mean, wouldn't the edges of it keep "sticking" in the flesh? I sure wouldn't want that, regardless of what side of the knife I'm on!

I think the serrated and partially serrated blades come into play with survival and utility knives rather than self-defense. While any knife can be used for self-defense, most survival and utility knives spend most of their time handling practical cutting jobs during the normal course of life and work, a little time doing fast cutting of ropes and webbing to rescue/extract trapped individuals, and very little time employed as weapons. I prefer having the base of my single-blade utility knives partially serrated for use in cutting seatbelts, ropes or other heavy fabrics and materials. Self-defense use of the knife is of no consequence in this preference.

I have a couple just for the display case: Here is a one of a kind custom I really like - hand forged, turkish twist pattern - integral, meaning that it is made from single piece of pattern welded steel (damascus:
