I switched from a plain pocket knife to a leatherman years ago and never looked back. Way more useful for everyday activities. In fact it saved Halloween this year (our group would have been stuck trick or treating with the kids without being able to open beer :beer: ). I even keep a spare one in my blind bag.

pro-tech knives is my blade of choice. I've used cold steel, benchmade, and other great knives, but pro-tech in my opinion has outlasted, and worked for me both in the field and at work.......I'm a fed.....and used it to pry open things, break windows, cut seatbelts, and other things. Spent time in nasty places overseas and it worked just fine in the elements. It's a bit thicker blade than

Why do I shoot 3.5" for geese? Because they don't make a 4" yet!

Yeah I notice that and edited my post.
And they are pricey knives...

Go with the manual Emerson Knives CQC-7. I can open a manual folder...especially an Emerson...just as fast as an auto. I don't see what the big deal is with getting auto knives...

Leatherman skeletool or a Leatherman wave. I find my self not using the blade so much but the rest gets used a good 30+ times a day on the farm. If anything breaks I just send it in and get it fixed.

This is true. I carry a SuperTool 300 at work. It definitely gets used more than my pocket knife.
