I've been carrying my Benchmade Mel Pardue for at least 6 years and love it.

I've been carrying a Centurion most often lately.

A Gerber E-Z Out is the oldest one-handed opener I have.



In my work pants, I always carry a Gerber Paraframe.

Here is a picture of my two new favorites. The top is a Benchmade 581 Barrage and the bottom is a Benchmade 585 mini-Barrage. Both have the Axis lock with spring assist opening. Great pocket knives.

This is a spyderco rescue... (I think that is the name). Idea was to not be able to stab myself. But don't ask how I know how sharp it is....


Also have a skele-tool and a spyderco Scorpius that make the rotation.

Gerber Paraframe Straight Blade for everyday carry.


Leatherman Core for the heavier tasks.

I was carrying this guy for a while last summer.





It's a Bark River and I think they call it the City Knife. It's a cool little guy, very sharp and rugged and useful, and the sheath/wallet is nice too, but only big enough for maybe two or three cards, and a few $ in cash. I find that I like to carry a fat wallet with multiple credit/debit cards, IDs, business cards, coffee cards, etc., etc., so the wallet portion is too small and I ended up back with my regular wallet and the little Buck pocketknife. But the idea is intriguing, nice to be able to have a fixed blade and fairly 'potent' knife handy, even when dressed in business attire. I may try to rethink my carry methodology.

spyderco persistence

nothing crazy. cheap enough to use, but still feels solid in your hand. not too big, not too small. had lots of folders, including other spydercos. i really like the ratio of handle to blade. feels safer, easier to control, than most knives.

in my opinion, one of the best deals out there for a pocket knife.
