I always end up with a u.s.a buck knife they seem to be alright last one I had didn't take a edge worth chit but the buck 110 holds a edge very well it's a good solid knife.
if you can read this your almost as smart as a dolphin.

I carry this every day also. Have for over ten years. Bought it for like ten bucks and it's always in my right pocket with a lighter and chap stick, reminds me of a small trapper. Never use it that often but always there when I want it. I think I found a spyderco that I am gonna try out. Be my first one. Image

I've lost my everyday Case knife somewhere within the last week, but that's what I carry. Also, if legal where you are, look at the benchmade autos. Autos are only legal now to be carried on duty, but I've been carrying one for about 12 years now and love it.

Those are some damn expensive knives. I carry a Leatherman Wave. It holds and edge well and has the added bonus of the other tools. I've been stuck in situations where these tools have come in handy and I was damn glad I bought that sucker. I generally don't carry a knife for self defense.

I used to have a front loaded switch blade I bought in Italy. My wife conveniently "lost" it when we first got married. It's still a sore spot in our marriage. She is half Puerto Rican. I figure she committed some kind of crime with it and needed to get rid of the evidence.

My father was a police officer. he used to have a box of knives he took from criminals. Most were cheap but there were a bunch of cheap side loaded switch blades, springs removed of course.

I have a WW 2 frogman's K- Bar. I don't want to ever part with that. I also have this bayonet my father gave me. I never got to ask him where he got it or what it actually was. It looks more ceremonial than for actual fighting.

DLT Trading usually has good price's. Would still check out the Bark River Mini fox in A2. Hold's an edge long time and convexed edge is easy to sharpen leather strop and green or black compound. But they carry many brands.

US owned era Schrade 30t
Great steel, easily sharpened to shaving level. If you do a lot of hacking around you won't like it, won't hold an edge for long doing that type of thing.

Was reading somewhere about the automatic knives. Turns out I have one and that got me to wondering if the danged thing is legal for me to have and in what states is it not legal to have. The knife is slicker than heck...push a little button and it unfolds by spring like a switch-blade. Not so sure I should be toting it around state to state like I been doing.

What states allow them and what states don't?

I dunno and sure ain't going to go find a cop and say, "Is this legal to have?".
Probably get three answers from three policemen.
I'm gunna say no, it's not your everyday carrying around knife.
Blade is 2.5" long (gasp)
Cleans ducks well, is a pita to sharpen but that's good.
A hard to sharpen knife stays sharp longer. :thumbsup:

I do that all the time, too. I am so used to carrying a knife I just forget. However, once I had a fully stainless steel knife. They pulled me aside to do the random wand over me and did NOT find it. I walked onto the plane with that knife. I wonder if it's the lower carbon in stainless that didn't set it off.

I always carry an automatic. In CA it can be 2" long blade and be legal. There is a really nice 2" Schrade I carry most of the time, but I also have OTF's and regular switchblades, too. Stupid law to me. You can carry a freaking machete in a sheath on your belt, but a knife that is a little easier to open is illegal. I've got a Smith and Wesson 1600 OTF that is a really nice knife.
I just got used to them on the job, where I'd have something in one hand and have to grab and open my knife with the other hand. What is wrong with that? I used to work the Buck knives with various grades of abrasive until they were really nice gravity knives, but they don't like those either!

I've been carrying an automatic for years. Was a gift, had no idea I was carrying illegal until I started looking at them online. Have to be an active LEO or Military to carry one in KY, or have a CCW permit, which I don't have yet.


My favorite knife to carry though. Very handy to just pull it out and push the button. Mine is a Benchmade Mel Pardue 3550. Great knife, I recommend it if it's legal there.


Here's the different state laws on them if you're interested,

The law in Illinois is gray. (Of course)
You can have a switchblade hunting knife. I guess it better be hunting season and better have a license.
Arkansas: very goofy wording.
If you intend to use the knife as a switchblade it's not legal. But if you intend to just use it as a knife is ok?
You can't take it anywhere that sells liquor. I'll leave the knife in my blind bag. Then it's a hunting knife for cleaning game.

How do you legally define your future intent?
