Jarhead, I love the Stryker too...a great "go-to" knife though various laws make it less than the optimal solution in certain places.

5 Solas said:Also, another eternal question: folder of fixed with sheath?  It would seem that with EDC a folder would be preferable but I can see the use of fixed as well.  Thoughts?


It really comes down to the practicality of it. From day to day it's just hard to carry a fixed with a sheath. Folders are good for all the tasks most people need to do when it comes down to the day-to-day grind in the office or in the wilderness. However, when it comes to straight up haveing a decent knife that you can bet your life on in a situation I'd say the majority of guys would like a nice solid fixed bland on hand. Really I think fixed blades are something more reserved for your Bug-Out-Bag or Emergency Car Kit. It's not something to carry from day to day unless you are in a tactical or heavy-duty line of work.My 2 cents on that one.

My main carry knife is a Microtech SOCOM-Elite auto opener that I have had since early 07.  So far it has worked great for me and done everything I needed it to do without a problem.  I also have some ZT knives I carry from time to time.  My next EDC knife purchase is coming up though and I have been debating between an Emerson,Strider or something else.

I don't go too far without my Ka Bar TDI knife.  I also carry a CRKT folder.  The TDI knife is a great second line of defense and all around utility blade.The concept came from TDI which is not too far from where I live.  I've trained with the guys who designed it and many guys I work with swear by it for on-duty carry as well as off.

Fair enough, and what I had initially thought.  Thanks!

No SOG love? I carry a mini X-ray these days and I like it a lot. Very compact and light, yet sturdy enough for prying once in a while. I took it apart and polished all the moving surgaces and it opens like a sob. Only drawback is that there are no colors avaialble, I'd prefer an all black version.Posted Image

I rotate out a few different knives for EDC.  In my pocket right now I have a Benchmade 585 Mini Barrage.  I like this kinfe alot.  Its assited-opening and their AXIS lock is one of the best in the business.  I also carry a Benchmade 556 Mini Griptillian.  Its light and a little thinner than the Barrage. For the money, one of the best knives Ive picked up is a Columbia River Knife and Tool (CRKT) Drifter.  You can pick them up between $20 and $30.  Very good solid knife and man can it keep an edge.  The liner lock is very nice and tight and theres no waggle in the blade at all.  Im thinking about picking up another one just to stow away in my EDC bag.

I am usually a Benchmade or SOG fan, I have a Benchmade 5300SBK Tanto Auto Presidio as one of my first carry knives, I got it while in Iraq and I used it religiously for everything, and on my vest I have a SOG Seal Pup which I used all the time from cutting 550 cord to cutting zip ties and 100mph tape off of EPWs.Now, since I don't want to loose my benchmade and I have come to find out that it is kind of difficult to sharpen the tanto style blade, I sent it in to get a resharpening from benchmade which is a nice service they provide. I carry a Buck Bantam BBW which I found at academy for $9 bucks, it is a good carry blade for what I do everyday and it had the sharpest blade I have ever encountered on a factory right out of the box knife.All around it gets the job done for what I need to do and if it ever breaks I can get a new one for not a lot of money.

Benchmade Auto Stryker is my EDC. A very sturdy lock-up for an auto knife and it seems to keep an edge very well.Plus a little Ka-Bar TDI LDK in my wallet.https://www.kabar.co...Law Enforcement

Emerson CQC-7B (Second one, first one is so beat up, I decided to treat myself to a new one. 5 years of everyday use will do that.)Spyderco P'kal or a customized (Tsunami'ed Mod) Benchmade Griptilian. Either are always carried weak side for firearm retention.Tekna Security Card - Great knife, throw some velcro on it, you can mount it anywhere... even use it as a duty belt buckle cover.Microtech UTX70 - Love that little guy.
