Spent today working on two sheaths for my Mad Dog Frequent Flyer knife (no longer in production).  Non-metallic, pretty early version of carbon knives.  Came with two sheaths, a weird upside down pocket sheath and a belt slide sheath.  I converted the pocket sheath to an S.O.B. sheath and remolded the slider into an I.W.B. appendix carry.Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image

I usually carry my SOG Trident. It has a lock built into the side of the handle and sometimes it locks on it own. I dont like that. I think I am going to put something in the space so it cant lock. I would be bad to need your knife and when you pull it out its locked closed. But other than the lock I like it. The photo is from a website.

Practice makes permanent, not perfect, so do it right.

Chase, those sheath modifications rock brother! /wp-content/forum-smileys/sf_headbang.gifI too have a Mad Dog Frequent Flyer and love it. Unfortunately I only have a neck sheath for it.If you know of anywhere I could get sheaths like the ones you have made for it, I'm all ears... I don't think Kevin will make sheaths anymore if you send a knife back to him.

Picked this up a week or so ago….Posted ImageEmerson Mini CommanderSo far I'm REALLY liking it.  I was wanting to pick up a black blade with no serrations, but I came across a deal too good to pass up.  The wave feature works great and everything is very stout.  I'm also glad I got the mini as it is still a fairly large knife.  I think a regular Commander or the Super would just be to big for me to pocket carry with everything else I have crammed in there.

Brock, I've got a full sized Commander that I apendix carry. It's not as large as you might think to carry like this or on the hip, but in a pocket I could definitely see where it might be an issue.

Top to bottom: Buck Knives "Bucktool" (I don't think it's in production any longer, my Dad gave it to me about 10 years ago); Swiss Army Knife custom engraved (gift from one of my Mom's friends); "Firefighter" tanto folder (2x for $3 on ebay) almost exclusively lives in my backpack as a back-up; "Paratrooper" assited opening folder (about $15 from Maine Military in Bangor, no name, just paratrooper logo). The handle is a lot more shiny than it looks and not that comfortable but it was inexpensive and it works.I always have at least one blade on me (normally the Paratrooper) but most of the time I also have my Bucktool as well. When I have my back-pack the "Firefighter" is in the front pocket and occasionally I'll have a rip-off SOG Seal Pup in the main pocket. By rip-of I mean it's a SOG with a different company's name on it ("Gear-To-Go®") I'm going to get a Kydex sheath for it, though.1.) ClosedPosted Image2.) OpenPosted Image

I actually modified the sheaths that came with it.  Check out http://www.knifekits.com for some sheath materials...

Hi guys.I got really hooked to the GERBER LMF2 ASEK knife shown previously.I like the size, thickness, sheath and the fact that it prevents electrical shocks.Posted ImageBut I'm also considering the Becker BK2 for the same intended use.Posted ImageWhich one would you choose and why?Intended use:Light wilderness use. One day trips. Light duty survival.Also, SHTF (as in Bug out situation)  defensive knife.

I just picked up a Benchmade Vex recently and its a great little knife.  Cabela's has them on sale right now for $30.  Great price for a good knife.

MJP,  I work in downtown DC.  How do you think the Leek compares to other small blades as far as pocket presence ect. for our very controled work environment.  FYI, I work alongside law enforcement, so more worried about other areas.

I work in DC too! We'll have to get together for lunch some time or something. The Leek is really thin so I usually don't really remember it's on me. The pocket clip isn't too small though so I'm assuming it's pretty noticeable to people that carry knives on a daily basis. I almost always wear jeans and it blends in really well.There aren't many other small knives for me to compare it too. I've used larger ones like the Gerber Hinderer and then a smaller tanto style blade with micarta grip. This Leek is the most thin I've seen while still having a good length. The assisted opening is fun too, it's insanely easy to get the blade out. Did that help at all?

Yeah it does.  The guys here at work actually are frequently seen with the leek, I only wish the clip let it go deeper in the pocket and was less noticible.  I have been looking at the SOG flash II but it looks like in the pictures that the handle would be thick.  Kind of a no-go for me since I am a typically dressed DC worker in slacks, tie, and dress shirt.  I like the thinnes of the leek, but then again, there is the clip.  I am down for lunch sometime, I work in the Ronald Reagan for your reference. J

I bought a Boker AK47 automatic knife for day to day carry. It is inexpensive ($40.00 , I think at the Gun Show) and super light. Definitely NOT a heavy duty survival knife, but I learned a lesson from carrying guns all these years. My favorite gun/knife is the one I have in my hand right now when I need it! My carry pistol is an AMT Backup, stainless steel in .45 acp. Same reason as the knife. If I KNOW I'm heading into harms way, I want FIRE SUPPORT, not any knife or gun! But if I think I'm heading to Wally World for eggs and milk,and Bruno thinks he wants my (whatever),  I want something I can use in my hand, Not in the truck, not on my dresser, or in the gun safe! W&E ps. Why the AMT? Well, it has a terrible trigger pull (12 lbs plus) , a horrible sight (groove), only holds 5+1. Kicks like a jackass, throws a ball of fire that would blind Ray Charles.... HOWEVER - it is the smallest 45 I have ever SEEN ! It is damned near invisible in the little Uncle Mikes nylon belt slide holster, feeds anything and I don't mind carrying it! Matter of fact, I can almost forget its there! 
The battle, sir, is not to the strong alone; it is to the vigilant, the active, the brave. Besides, sir, we have no election. If we were base enough to desire it, it is now too late to retire from the contest. There is no retreat but in submission and slavery! Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston! The war is inevitable–and let it come! I repeat it, sir, let it come. Thomas Jefferson

I'm a knife junkie, I really have a problem.  I have two benchmade griptilians.  One set up to go in my right rear pocket, the other set up to go in the left rear pocket.  One serrated, one plain.  I also have a benchmade mini pika which is a very nice smaller knife.  Lately I have been carrying an Emmerson Commander, which I didn't think I would like at first, but it is so solid, and the wave action is radical.  I also have a smaller Emmerson with a tanto blade.  Finally I usually have a small razor sharp neck knife.  Oh yea, I just got one of the new 5-11 boot knives which is pretty good for the price, (free with a pair of boots). I know, I need help.

I picked up a new EDC blade last night from a righteous friend.  Said he wanted to make sure I'm armed appropriately for my upcoming deployment.  He GAVE me a Lone Wolf Knives 'Double Duty'.  I won't go into specifics here but suffice to say it's a very generous gift.  Check it... Posted Image Sorry the picture isn't the best...

I've heard a lot of bad stuff about the gerber knife in previous posts. It was mostly about being a terrible survival knife.Any input? Chris
