Need a new knife

Postby t_baker » Wed Mar 05, 2014 9:09 pm

Time for a new knife. I generally carry a CRKT but looking for something new. Less than 100 bucks as this will be a every day knife. Assisted opening is a plus, pocket clip also.


Go.

This is what I have been carrying for 2+ years. I paid around 65 for it at SMKW while on vacation, been a great knife, just worn out. I would order another if they were in stock for that price.

I tend to like spyderco or kershaw for throw around knives.

I have never held onto a spyderco, they look nice. Kershaw always seem like they loose an edge easily to me and won't take one worth a damn either. I have half a dozen of the Ken-onions I got free off the Snap-on truck with tool deals. Just never cared for them.

Spyderco Delica or Endura depending on your application.

take a look at Cabela's Alaskan Guide® Series 110 Folder , Ive behead 24 rainbows and skinned 3 deer and haven't resharpened it yet. Its the best knife Ive ever had. It puts my hunting knife that was made in Solingen Germany in 1961 to shame for keeping a edge

I second Spyderco. Tough knives, hold their edge. I carry the all stainless police model quite a bit.

They use a steel similar to AUS8 (8cr13mov if I'm not mistaken) you can't just use an arkansas stone. You have to remove the birds with carbide before and after you sharpen it. Follow up with a ceramic. They hold the edge for a good long while, it is just a little more intensive to get them sharpened.

I've carried a bench made for years.

Just picked up a havalon that is intriguing.

Love the endura with the wave feature. Best "assist" feature around as far as I'm concerned.

I like the looks of it but a 5" knife closed is a little large for what I am wanting.

Nope. No Spydercos for me. Nosiree.
My lab died, and no one on Duckhuntingchat even cared.

Benchmade is a great knife. You can get them for around $100

I really like Chris Reeve Small Sebenza I just got fifty in today for my employees to celebrate our 35th year in business they are top of the line machine made knife you can pick up a used one sometimes for 150 well worth extra few bucks.

I think they make a shorter version. Used to anyway.

Really like my little spyderco, and that H1 steel not rusting is not a gimmick. Will get a bigger one soon.

I can keep a knife for about six months.
