    It replaced a Mini Griptillian a few years ago, which I lost. I prefer it in every way, as great as the Mini Grip was.

    kershaw.....not sure beyond that. dad found it on the side of the road when i was in high school, and he gave it to me. use to be assisted open, but a decade of pocket carry has made that stop working. still, a handy little thing, and keeps an edge well-i've even used it often on antler!

    buck 112 is carried on my belt. (GAW i got on here) a nice little size-not too big and not too small. i've come to love having it on the belt-i'm using it instead of the kershaw most of the time now! kershaw is still good for carrying when i can't belt carry (like when i'm teaching or at church.)

    That handle looks like it'd be extremely comfortable.
    Beautiful folder.

    Those Bugouts look so nice. Wanted one since I laid eyes on them. I see you also got the free Olight...

    I'm with you on the Bugout. Just looks like a perfect EDC.

    @OutdoorsFamilyMan
    Thanks my friend!
    The Bugout is a nice blade. It’s freakishly light and barely noticeable in your pocket!
    This olight is actually in copper. It’s the same model as the freebie’s so hard to tell the difference.
    However I did end up ordering one of the free Olight’s as well thanks to our friend @Wasp :dblthumb:

    This is my EDC at work. It rides in the breast pocket of my vest. It's a beast that carrys like a much smaller knife

    Two that I'm carrying quite a bit. The SAK is an old one that I re-handled in red linen Micarta...not polished at all, it's a workhorse! The other is a RAT II in carbon fiber with a D2 blade. I stripped the black coating off, gave the blade a more refined drop point and added a swedge to both sides. It's my "utility knife." I use it for everything.

    Alright, @blue333 ... of all the knives you've posted, that's my favorite. My "all-time-in-my-wildest-dreams" grail folder is either a Curtiss F3 (medium, which is what yours looks like it is) or a Hinderer Half Track....both with the g10 scales..ETA...or a koenig arius...forgot about that one...and coincidentally you posted one of those too lol

    @OutdoorsFamilyMan
    Thank you my friend!
    The Medium F3 is one of my favorite folders. It’s just the right size imo, hand filling without being cumbersome. The action on it is ultra smooth as well.
    Although I would have to say that the Koenig Arius has it beat with the smoothness.
    Because Koenig’s are high tech milled knives, the tolerances are much finer & they are able to get these things super dialed in!

    As for the Hinderer Half Track, I had one a while back and sold it. I now regret it, as it was a fine little knife!

    By the way, you have some great taste in folders my friend ! :dblthumb::dblthumb:

    CRK Small Sebenza 21 for me. Koenig Arius and Hinderer Half Track have been like on the radar for a while. Holding out for the right Arius at this point.

    I've got a simpler 2 layer Custom Compact (Awl instead of Hook) which should be here by Saturday too. That will likely be my EDC and this one will be for Woods Walking.

    Benchmade 531 and blueberry pie. This one is my everyday driver. I love it. It replaced my 530 which I carried for about 8 years.

    I've been carrying this Griptilian for a few months, and really like it. Much lighter than the Buck 110 I carried for years.

    I have a one bladed Old Timer hunter like that, good old knife. Too heavy for everyday carry, but fits a sheath and could make a good camp knife for around the site. Camper glamping.

    I’ve had the CRKT for probably 10 years and bought the other one when I thought I had lost it. Thankfully it was just taking a vacation in a backpack for a while. :D

    The CRKT is missing a screw and the thumb stud, but still works great for my needs. It could probably use a good cleaning and sharpening though.

    I’m sitting at a local Sheetz now and this is what I found in my pockets: A Case Peanut with Stag, a Victorinox SAK Super Tinker, and an older Benchmade tanto designed by Emerson.

    @shanerbass , no safe queens there!! Nice.
    @akbound , that Benchmade CQC7 was my first "good" folder purchase, many moons ago (late 80's? Not sure. I was young, so it's been a while..)
    Timeless design, it's still my favorite of all Ernie's models.
    Let me know if you ever grow tired of it.

    Nice! Yours is the first Sebenza I have seen that . . . looks like mine! You actually carry and use it!

    Not at all afraid to use it. Was made to be used and it can take beating and keep asking for more. Plus, CRK has great warranty and spa service, so no need to worry about giving her some abuse (within reason of course)

    Thanks for the comments. I’ve actually had that one since the 80’s myself and it is a good knife/good design. Considering the use/carry it’s seen I’m constantly amazed myself how well it’s “weathered” the years. I also have another Benchmade from that era though I wasn’t carrying it the day I posted the above message. The two of them constantly are rotated into and out of my “to town” carry. Here it is below:

    E5C0E6B4-A3EB-4EE3-B199-485A50FA3FB7.jpeg

    I’m constantly amazed by the longevity I’ve gotten from these two folders! Years prior to these two Benchmades I bought a folding Pacific Cutlery knife (from the company preceeding the start-up of Benchmade), it was also an extremely wonderful knife that I carried overseas in a couple of my early deployments. My brother’s son now owns that knife and still uses it (I had gifted it to my brother prior to one of his deployments).

    They make a good product!

    P.S. Editted to add; since the above two Benchmades tend to scare the “natives”, I always insure I have several smaller PC options along as well.;) It keeps peace when out and about. :)

    The real problem with these threads, from my perspective, is they keep me “idea and equipment” enriched, but money poor!;)

    correct.

    swapped out to a SAK Farmer for a weekend because of "BEER". felt weird..and the ACE was back that next Monday. mine is getting scuffed..had to Brillo pad off a horrid gunk stain...if i had to guess, Vine Sap. and that scuffed up my knife. the new Knife Smell is definitely gone. long gone.

    pretty stain resistant..and finally getting some dulling going on. had to stab a few tomatoes before making the following cuts.

    i do feel melancholy about taking the shine out of my knife a bit.

    We live just a handful of miles off I-80, north of Brookville, PA; so when I stop on the boulevard in town we have alot of travelers off the highway for fuel and a bite. One day in McDonald’s bathroom I was washing the grease off my Benchmade after cutting a sandwich and one of the patrons freaked out. Not a pleasant scene! The local police assured him he was okay, that I wasn’t violating any laws, and that the world would continue to rotate. He left shortly later, I apologized to our local police for causing the excitement, and them the extra work, and decided to try not to cause any more near coranaries with the “natives”, so to speak. I know I kind of find it semi-amusing, semi-sad, and/or pathetic but unfortunately our world is changing and not always towards a positive direction.

    By the way, it is not really so much the locals; but they too are starting to change as well in many instances. And for the record, our local police were more than understanding with me, slightly more than bemused themselves, and I think kind of okay with the break from the tedium.
