    I have gone through quite a few folders. From Kershaw's, to Benchmade, to CRKT's, etc. I am looking for a new one, what do y'all carry?

    This is one I am looking at.

    I carried an Emerson for a long time... Now I carry an AL Mar SERE 2K. My wife bought them for me and my foreman when we did a kitchen remodel. I just bought another for my Son for his B-Day.... Al Mar knives are the only one I can really keep a 'shave' edge on... Good Stuff for the right Fuggin Marine! [peep]


    Very smooth and I think it may have ball bearings in the pivot... not sure of that but it's smooth...

    I carry one of the two Emersons I got at Blade - a waved CQC-8 or a waved Commander. I think Emerson is second only to Strider and when I sell a few more knives I'll get a Strider.

    The Commander's on the top:

    Nice.

    I carried a CQB-7 and gave my wife a CQB-7 mini. The CQB-7 was first an Emerson-Benchmade design and phishi has one of the original Benchmade's

    Nice knife.

    There are a lot of really good, production, pocket folders out there...

    I'm waiting for Valk to make one..... b::

    I have an older Al Mar which I really like. For the life of me I find it hard to get into these new folders that have the release mechanism inside and not on the outside.

    I found that the Al Mar is a sweet knife all around for doing just about anything I want.

    Problem is - I just hate to get it scratched so I end up using one of my fixed blades and back it goes somewhere at the moment I hope in the safe (because right now my room seems to be the black hole for knives).

    O.k..... I have to admit my daily carries tend to be Victorinox knives.... can't beat them for normal chores.... not a nuclear tough knife that will go through doors or beat bricks... but the tweezer, scissors, can opener, short blade, long blade etc... come in real handy all the time..... I don't have much use for the cork screw....

    I forgot about the Swiss Army Knife - my Mom gave me one back in the 80's and I never am without one since. Great knives - and I did find a use for the corkscrew! We used to have this screwhole about an inch deep that bugs would nest in on gas well meters. When I needed to get that nesting stuff out of the hole I corkscrewed it out - worked great.

    Well, I have a Sabre 9211 that I got about 15 years ago and still carry even though I had to regrind it after useing it as a screwdriver/crowbar to many times and it has the weld marks on the back from useing it to jump the cylinoid on an old car, it makes a nice back up and for under $10 new I have to say it has held up great. My other one thats alwayse on me is a Winchester that my sis got me for christmas a couple years ago in a package deal with a multi tool that I also carry.
    Another thing I love about that Sabre, I think its the ONLY lock blade I have ever owned where the lock has NEVER failed, and with the way I abuse knives (cut wire, scrape metal clean, use as screw driver, use to pry, cut sheet metal, have even used a pocket knife to take out a wall in the house) its amazeing that any knife has survived me for 15 years!

    I have carried a Leatherman Micra for several years, I use the scissors and gadgets daily. My local wallyworld had a package deal with a Gerber multi tool and a frame lock knife for 13.82, so I have been using one of the Gerbers for a couple of months now, the other tools are better on the Gerber.

    I will have to go by there and see if they have any left. That is a deal.

    If they don't. or you can't get there, I'll pick one up for you. The new store is only a mile from my house.

    That is awesome. We are getting a brand spanking new Super Wal-Mart and Lowe's in Lindale, they should be open in a month or two. Tyler is also getting a new Gander Mountain. Like I needed an excuse to spend more money. If you go by there, pick me one up and I will send you some cash. We need to get together. Maybe do some work on the AK's.
