I have a very similar knife. It's locked in a drawer and I haven't cut myself yet.

Well, except the day I got it. But that's why it's locked in the drawer.

Got a brand or anything on the knife? Hate to sound like an ass, but by the description, it sounds and looks like it is some cheapo knife, bringing in more money than its worth. Benchmade are good like BostonFixed said. Check bladeauction.com, they may have something your looking for. Also check any local home depot, they carry Case knives(most do anyways) which are pretty damn good for the price(sometimes overpriced though). If you need anything else, just PM me.

I use a little Gerber. The blade is maybe and inch long, it folds out, has a lock and composite handles. It does everything I need a knife to do and is not noticeable in my pocktet.

I fiddle around with a butterfly knife I bought in Chinatown once, it was like $15 and I expected it to fall to pieces and suck, but it's actually been pretty nifty.

As for real knives, my friend has the knife that Navy SEALS use. It's unreal how nice it is. It has the blood-gutter/trough thing, it has this smokey haze on it to stop glare and it's very, very high quality. I can't remember where it came from now, but it was very expensive- $150-$200. Almost worth it for how cool it is.

I have that knife(or something similar). Very nice, almost makes me want to not use it

For a folding pocket knife, I have a small gerber like Rev.Chuck. The blade is about 3in long, stainless steel, soft-rubber grips, and locks in the open position. Works well for fishing, cutting open boxes, letter opener etc.

I also own a small gerber knife, the ridge model, similar to what chuck has. It's cool, black and cheap, I got mine for $20 @ target. The blade on mine chipped kinda easily. It used to be my daily carry.



I LOOVE those knives that you buy on the street. I own a few from the many people selling knives in boston. They are cheap @ around $10-15 each, and look really cool. They're probably not very durable though.

I have a bunch of Smith & Wesson S.W.A.T. knives, they are sturdy and great for everyday use! I got em off Ebay for about $20-30 each


I have that little pocket Gerber also, and I also have the Leatherman Wave and Supertool 200.

I'm kind of a collector.

I have a Spyderco Clip-it Delica knife that i really like, plus it's got a reversible clip for lefties like me. Super easy one-handed operation, comes in three different blade types. Full edge, serrated, or mixed 50/50. Mine is at least 5 years old, and sees almost daily use with no problems.


You can see it here:

I carry a Benchmade model 824. It's a little bigger than I'd like but it's a great knife.

Cold Steel has a great, tough, innovative line of knives and they are very reasonably priced.

I have a Buck in the left habd pocket. Ijust used it to slice a tomato for lunch. I have a CRKT just as you describe in my right hand pocket. The one hand opening is very handy when you have a 100# sack of feed in one had you need to open.

Thats friggin sweet!

Does anyone know of Sheffield knifes? Its a nife like that one (in the sense of the way it folds) Its nice, Someone told me it was really nice. I cant find out the real maker to send it to them for them to take it apart, clean it out and sharpen. I also have my eye on the smith and wesson swat (black of course)
