I carry a Spyderco Manix I as my EDC.
If I am in the sticks somewhere or hunting, I carry a 4" fixed blade custom made by Robert Hawk.
I have some "killin" knives. They are USMC fighting types or Chris Reeves one piece design. I put them away the last time I came home. I don't have much need for a 7"+ knife here. Besides, pistols work better
As for a consensus? I think everyone is going to have their own personal preference.
Kind of like asking which is the best battle rifle or best assault rifle.
Anyway, limited knife selection here.
couple of leatherman tools
couple of buck pocket knives
a Gerber chameleon
crazyness breaks out
a bunch of box cutters/utility knives
and really wicked evil Linoleum Knife
and a WW2 Japanese Type 32 sword
and a scythe
if i were to get a new knife it might be the
gerber 06 Automatic Tanto and possibly a Gerber Ridge (money clip style)
leatherman EOD MUT
Browning double bladefolder
Puma Pro hunter (1971)
cold steel tanto (1990)
Western Bowie (1969)
Daily, Kershaw assisted opening partially serrated, tanto point. Sog power pliers multi-tool with power assisted opening on the knife blades, and a Victorinox multi-tool.
Other uses-Busse Combat Steel Heart(E), Badger attack, and Anorexic Badger fixed blade knoves
Swiss army, carried it for over 25yrs on a chain, 'don't leave home without it'. Also carry a Western belt knife for road kill, happens here all the time, Hey it cost someone a radiator. When camping/hiking ect.. a Kbar. I use the Swiss all the time, funny 'cuz my friends will ask me "you gotta knife?". DUH. Was at a ski patrol Brat roast last year and no one else had one to open stuff up. Had to fly and felt neked w/o one, bought one and gave it away B4 I flew back. Not PC to carry a knife, ha ha.
A blade is a very personal item, to each thier own, have some auto knives, something about that blade whipping out on its own that I find really cool. I have one Kinfolk knife that I found 40yrs ago, oh I love that one, had to make a holster for it, then had to make another, lotta time with that one.
I like the Moro, cheap to buy, long tang, NOT stainless (thus I get a spark when I strike a rock/flint) and easy to sharpen. Anyone here ever get a good edge with a stainless steel knife? I haven't, even with a goog sharpening wheel.
Very alloy dependent. Martensitic is cheap, but will hold an edge if it was heat treated correctly. Austenitic, not so much.
EDC: Gerber Fast, Gerber MP600 Basic multi-tool.
Hiking: EDC setup, Gerber Profile or Gerber Big Rock Camp Knife, SAK.
Brush clearing: Hiking setup, Kershaw Outcast.
"Battle Blade": All of the above and either a machete or tomahawk.
I usually carry a Victorinox Farmer and CRKT M16-04.
When out in the "boonies" I carry any one of the following:
Cold Steel Recon Scout 7 1/2"
Cold Steel Trail Master 9 1/2"
Gerber Bowie 9 1/2"
Cold Steel Master Hunter 4"
modified M9 Bayonet
I rotate between a Victorinox Cadet.
A Case Copperlock.
and a Benchmade Mini Griptilian.
I have others but these are my favorites (this week!)
My EDC is a Blackie Collins Meyerco 3" with serrations, but some times carry a Gerber Gator with serrations. I like the rubber grips.
I have a SOG assisted open,plus a Kobalt razor knife and a Winchester multi tool i carry on a daily basis.If im feeling like having some fun,i might put on my pig sticker (unknown brand,i bought it used and worn but its super sharp).
Pictures? Maybe we can figure out what the brand is, I like big knives.
Man I have had so many, the only one I "carry" is my US ARMY demo knife, a Camillus multi blade style.
I have a 15 inch nasty and a 9 inch on a field belt.
I have Gerber's gator, Case, and a host of others...skinning knives, etc.
It all depends on where I am and the situation.
