Pocket Knife Recommendations

Postby swampboy91 » Wed Oct 23, 2013 4:39 pm

In the market for a new pocket knife and just wondering what everyone else carries. I don't want anything to bulky or heavy and really prefer folding knives, but would carry one on my side if needed. Thanks

My best man got me a folding pocket knife as a gift for his wedding. Its made by Benchmade and I like it a lot. They will sharpen and fix for free if you send it to them. Gerber was my first and I was upset when I lost that knife.

My every day knife. Yellow handle
Case XX Easily sharpened when needed. If you drop it can find. Double blades. Fits nicely in pocket. Never leave home without it.

I've carried bucks for years, but the case knives are sharper out of the box and retain their edge.

I carry a KA-BAR warthog tanto folder. Decent blade but cheap enough to use as a prybar.

Buck Lite
Have been using this knife for years to clean game. Cutting wing and legbones is just knick and snap.
Its razor sharp. A leather strap and a good arkansas stone will do that.

I have been carrying a Kershaw Scallion for years. It has been a great little knife. I really like the speed safe assisted opening.

Buck 450 folder. Discontinued.
My lab died, and no one on Duckhuntingchat even cared.

I have one of these. Very nice knife. Also check out Great Eastern Cutlery trapper knives. I have one with cocobolo handle scales.

Schrade (American owned era) 30t. Handy little knife and sharpens quick. Dulls quick too. Not your knife if you regularly cut/strip wire (unless you're careful), and generally just hack around on stuff.

If you're going to get a Buck 110 Folding Hunter, I'd recommend spending the extra money at their custom shop. This will give you the option of premium knife steels(S30V) and your choice of handle, etc.

I have a dozen or so in the big wooden bowl by the door. Half or more are Kershaws. I just grab one on the way out the door. I keep a Kershaw Chive in my waders pocket.

I have one of these from probably 1988. One hell of a knife. Carried and used it for years until I started carrying the Benchmades & Spydercos...
