Benchmade 710 d2 straight blade EDC. Spyderco tenacious black straight blade while at work. While I absolutely love the 710, I really do beat up the spyderco all the time and i'm really super impressed with the coating for an 8cr13mov blade. Not a scratch on the coating although the blade has a few dents and dings. For the price I don't think you can beat the spyderco "value folder" line.

Hey Mangeface,

 Thanks for the redirect to this thread. Don't know how I missed it. Sorry!. Really wish that ITS had a live chatroom. Sometimes it would make communication easier. Mangeface and Corbs, disregard my question concerning ESEE folding knives. Found out on their website that they are licensed by Blue Ridge Knives by Randall Adventure and are manufactured in Taiwan. They also do not carry the no questions asked ESEE guarantee.

   My EDC is a Kershaw Ken Onion 1560ST Whirlwind Serrated Assisted open knife. I have had it since 2008 and I LOVE IT!!

   I wish I could have paid for it in 2008 what it is going for now.  But it was worth every penny!

   Anyways, the reason I was asking about ESEE folding knives is because I am looking at them as a secondary EDC but after research i will stay away from the folding ESEE's. I am now looking at an ESEE 3 Mil.

 

Now if only I could figure out how to post pictures in this forum....

Ok. I figured it out. Here is my Kershaw Ken Onion 1560ST Whirlwind open assist EDC knife. It has taken a beating and never fails.

As an EMT, I carry the unfortunately named Gerber Hinderer .  (It was named after the guy who thought it up. Too bad he wasn't named "Rescuer"  :D)

 

I like the heavy blade and I keep it shaving sharp (well, arm hair shaving sharp anyway).  Never have used the seat belt cutter (it should have been designed to open bottles too) but the window punch makes it almost too easy.  I've used the O2 bottle wrench often. 

 

In the past, I've also enjoyed carrying the Gerber Obsidian. Holds an excellent edge and the tools - including the bottle opener - are fairly sturdy. 

 

I back up the working knife with the diminutive yet multitalented Gerber Dime. Very handy for when tasks might involve wire stripping and connecting, or opening bottles. 

 

Yes, I'm a bit partial to Gerber knives - I've been carrying them for decades.

A buddy of mine gave me an old school SpyderCo Delicta 2 stainless straight blade for Christmas. Great little knife and will now be put into my EDC rotation.

While I use my knife almost daily, I haven't yet found a need to invest in an ultra-high quality knife. Been using a Kershaw Link w/ blackwash, and really like it:

An ESEE 3 and a CRKT MK-16, and a little itty bitty swiss army knife.  For cutting my clementines open.

My edc is the Spyderco paramilitary 2. Sv30 steel. Holds an extremely sharp edge for a long time. Definitely pricy but you get what you pay for with this one.

I have carried and still carry a M21 CRKT folder for over 15 years as my EDC

I LOVE THIS KNIFE!!! all I added to it was skate board tape for better grip.

 

 

M21 G10 Folder - Designed by Kit Carson 

 

Kit Carson of Vine Grove, Kentucky, was a retired professional soldier, rising to the level of Master Sergeant. He made knives for 30 years and was a full-time knifemaker, starting in 1993. He was a voting member of the Knifemakers' Guild. Kit was an avid hunter and fisherman for over 40 years, growing up enjoying the woods and trout streams in the mountains of north Georgia. About his philosophy of knife design, he said: "I strive to follow form and function in the knives I design and build. My reputation has been built around solid working knives, both fixed blade and folders. All the time spent outdoors as a young man and the time spent around the world with the Army has strongly influenced the knives I create." Nothing reflects this approach more than the Carson Design of our M16 series, which is built for function, not to follow fads. This highly successful knife series was named one of the Top 10 Factory Tactical Folders of the Decade by Blade magazine. The M16-14M won a comparison test conducted by Germany's Messer magazine. Sadly, Kit passed in September of 2014. His talent and influence is already greatly missed. The Carson family has requested that donations be made to the National Parkinson Foundation at Parkinson.org.

Before you start carrying fixed blade weapons in CA, remember these laws:

Psybain your right,

 

I lived in California for about 5 years I graduated HS in Salinas, ca. and the laws there and other places need to be concerned.

so thankfully I now live in Virginia and have much more flexibility within the commonwealth being a Registered PPS agent with the DCJS provides certain options of the profession,
