New pocket knife?

Postby Gooseboy » Tue Sep 26, 2006 6:20 pm

Hey guys im looking to get a good folder. But i cant afford a Boker or anything. Are kershaws good? I was thinking about getting a kershaw or a benchmade. I want something razor sharp that will stay razor sharp.

Benchmade or kershaw makes great knives!!! I personall like benchmade, but you should go to BPS and browse till you find one that you like. :thumbsup:

For the money, its hard to beat a kershaw assisted opener. Good quality knives and they have excellent customer service.

Either knife, kershaw or benchmade, are good knives for the money. I have one of each and I like them both. I have had the kershaw longer than the benchmade though

W.R. Case Knives

They are great, but may be a little more expensive. They just put out a DU knife set as well.

Benchmade is good but pricey. I have had and used a 710 for the last four years and love it. It holds and edge real well and better yet, it resharpens very very well. Gerber's are good, but I tend o own more Buck knives because they are good quality and not that expensive, and American Made.

I'm a fan of the Gerbers. I've seen a video of a guy slopping it up with mud, and dunking it in freezing water over and over and he unfolds everytime. There was also a test that was done where they unfolded it 10,000 times in one day and 50,000 times in a week and it unfolded everytime. It's the best knife for the money in my opinion.

Yeah, your right Gooseboy. I'm sorry. That does look like something a 14 year old would say.

Kershaw, Gerber, or Case. All great knives. I have 2 Gerber's and a Kershaw. The Kershaw is my daily carry knife, as it's a little fancier (assisted open S-curve blade, blue finish) all three are super sharp, with the Kershaw being a little sharper right out of the box but the Gerbers are easy to put an edge on. My step-dad swears by Case knives and uses one daily
