What's your edc knife today? Carrying my CRKT m16-01s.
>>49211648Question, and I'm asking this with sincerity.Why should I buy a knife like OPs?Is there any real advantages over my shitty Winchester aside from build quality?I'm just stuck in the mindset "I'd rather lose a $20 knife over a $200 knife."Redpill pls
>>49211708Thats a 30 dollar knife
>>49211708why would you buy something you're not comfortable with nor want? dont.
>>49211708OP here. Honestly I think I got mine for around 20 maybe 30 dollars I cant remember. Its a knife man it cuts like they all do. I just enjoy different styles. It comes down to what you like and how much money you want to spend.
>>49211708well OP's knife isn't that expensive at ~$30-$40 but knives that do generally cost around $200+ will have better blade steel and better/lighter materials used like titanium or carbon fiber which to some folks matter. realistically, more expensive knives are purchased as pocket jewelry and for their designs. t.ZT0560 owner that has only ever used it to open mail.
>>49211708OP's knife is a 20$ knife and probably is made of a bit better steel than a no name who got winchester to let them use their name for a small royalty fee.I had the gerber variant for a while and loved it until I lost it.As for nice knives, for me, there's no reason to carry much more than you're willing to lose. Exception being for your 1 or two high quality skinning knives or a survival knife. The time saved with those can get you off the mountain before dark with more good meat and not be as exhausted later.For others though, they just like having nice things and nice things are cool sometimes.
>>49211708You dont need a 200 dollar knife, but you get appreciable benefits in both steel and build quality up around $40-60, so I'd look for a quality company and upgrade your knife. It will just be a nicer experience in general
>>49211708crkt is shit quality chink knives
>>49211741I don't have a knife but in general I take care of things and make sure I don't lose shit that costs money over cheaper thingsidkmaybe if you bought a nice 200 dollar USA made knife you'd appreciate it more, take care of it and it would probably last a lifetime and support a domestic business instead of some jew that sells chink shit here?
>$200 is enough money to care about losingsmells like poverty spirit
>>49211731Oh shit oops.>>49211741Did I come across like that? Not intended. I want to upgrade my knife, just don't want to spend the price of a cheap firearm just for it to get lost, if it ever does.>>49211743Fair and understandable. I'm no knife guy, CRKT looked familiar and I thought it was one of those Benchmade tier ones.
>>49211803Yeah, whenever your paying for rent and utilities at my salary, you kinda tend to cherish $200 things more than most.
>>49211806Benchmade is chink shit tooI think they have a worse rep than crkt
>>49211833>paying for rent and utilities at my salaryDude he ready said poor you didn't need to respond lmao
>>49211772No they aren’t. That being said if you’re paying less than 60 dollars for one you’re going to get a low quality one.
>>49211842Wait really? Huh.I should mention I don't know shit about knife companies. I'm more along the lines of "knowing what's good at the county fair booth" type.
>>49211648Good knife bro
>>49211842Dude. I'm guessing youve never carried a quality crkt or a benchmade haha.
>>49211934nice chipped shitty blade
>>49211952What kind of pocket knife do you carry?
>>49211648I carry this every day.I carry it because I know that some absolutely autistic poorfag rapebaby on 4chan will lose his fucking mind knowing that someone still carries a Benchmade, despite the fact I purchased this long before the shit they pulled and I'm not going to throw away a perfectly good knife.Mainly I carry it though because it's quite honestly the best knife I've ever owned. 6+ years and it hasn't failed me yet.
>>49211842I'm pretty sure BM manufacturing is based in the US. I wouldn't be surprised to learn that they outsource some models since everyone does but the only real issues with them are their politics and being overpriced. Good customer service though.
>>49212120some of their cheaper knives use steel from china. I'm fairly certain everything is actually made in Oregon though.
>enough knife for the majority of situations you'll need a knife when out and about>handy screwdrivers>surprisingly handy tweezers you will lose >is the most PC knife you can carry, no one is gonna get uppity about you carrying a swiss army knife>costs like 16 dollars
>>49212120>>49212020I like that knife. And yea I dont keep up with the politics of benchmade but it seems like everyone here flips shit when they see one. I have the bugout and griptilian and they are a couple of the best knives ive ever carried. People will argue about anything these days haha.
>>49211772Their higher end knifes are made in Japan.
>>49212019>walkin around innastore>see dis guy>yep>he's a kershaw man
does benchmade support BLM or something?
>>49212019why don't they make this in a decent steel anymorewhy wont kershaw use decent steels?
One of theseThe Houge gets the most pocket time but the others get use depending on where im going and the situation/outfit. Its nice to have the cheaper throwaway gonzo if im going somewhere there might be security or somewhere I might lose it.
>>49212507They cut up guns for the cops and donate to antigun politicians. 1 or 2 of the Ds they support aren't awful but several others are pushing for shit like 10 round mag limits.
>>49212507They promoted some group that was - "We should have more intensive background checks on semi-auto rifles and handguns?" So /k/ groups them with the far left but they really are reasonable and served military contracts for decades and make top notch shit.
>>49212631Not to mention is was after a white male shot up a shopping center and then himself. This stuffs preventable.
>>49211648Just got my second smith and wesson black ops knife in the other day 10/10 would recommend
>>49211648CRKT brothas represent
>>49212541Wtf no offense but I didn't know Hogue rifle stocks made knives, I couldn't tell which one was the Hogue,figured no ways it's the cheap gas station looking knife.
>>49212167Would clean up and work just fine.
>>49212851Thats the beauty of spyderco knives. Never had to replace any of mine.
The spyderco in my leather wallet thing is only there for emergencies or if i literally forget to grab a knife on my way out of the house, i cant leave without my wallet so by sticking my knife on the wallet im guaranteed to have a knife.Other than that im using my warlock every day to wear it out and make it look cool.
>>49211648Honey badger, these things do not fall apart after a year of having mine i bought my dad one just because i was so happy with it.
>>49212851>>49212899>8cr blade with aftermarket micarta handles>"rust" patina on the blade and liners but nothing on the screws/hardware, none of the bolts are rusted and the pivot screw is immaculatethis thing was dipped in vinegar for instagram views, you dumb fucks
>>49211648Cobratech or a benchmade bailout(?). Got both for free with guns I bought at my LGS. Can't be arsed to get the Cobra out for a pic, its in my car.
>>49213039>CobratecLooks like one of those companies that puts together Chinese parts and charges Microtech prices. There are a bunch out there.>https://ravencresttactical.com/I'd say it's the modern equivalent to dudes at gun shows with tables full of kit knives being upsold as handmade but that's still widely done at shows and on Amazon.
>>49212812They make more plain ones too. It's the smoothest axis lock I have got out the box with an incredible edge.Plus the handle is made of super solid g10 compared to the bendy plastic bugout. Don't pay that full price but for around like 110 I got it for it's the nicest folder I have ever owned.
>>49213084It's not bad, legitimately ran it over and it still functions
>>49213084cobratec knives are the exact same parts and same molds as all the other chinese OTFs out there, including microtech, but dont charge microtech prices.Partially due to all their blades being D2 steel, you can get an equivalent to a microtech at more than half the price.I've taken them both apart, its the exact same machining and mechanims, just microtech gets to charge you more for literally nothing.
Spyderco Street Beat (the Real one with Micarata) in a leather pocket sheath most of the time.Spyderco PM3 w/ 5x5 Wave and I forget who (Lynch?) deep concealment clip sometime.Street Bowie sometimes in a similar leather sheath.I got a bunch of shit though, for a long time I carried a K Blur or Leek or a BM Mini Grip, I just like Spyderco better (also get it half off). On the list for a PM2, and Mantra 3. Bought a ton of ladybugs for the wife/kids/mom/etc.LARPing/Woods Kniofe is a Bagwell Hells Belle.
>>49211648RAT after ~6 year's service.
>>49211908What's your light?
Don't talk to me or my son ever again.
>>49215058Lumitop AA2.0. It's like $30 on amazon, microusb rechargable AA battery, strobe, 4 brightness modes. I've used it everyday for close to 2 years now, I just recently bought 5 of them a few weeks so I could keep them everywhere I may need them. Truck, car, UTV, tractor, mounted on truck shotgun, plus the one that's always on me. They're honestly life-changing.
>>49212631>They promoted some group that was - "We should have more intensive background checks on semi-auto rifles and handguns?">they really are reasonableGo away.
>>49212917How's the lockup/play on those Warlocks? I've always wondered.
>>49212782thats a heavy guy
>>49212631fuck those communists
>>49212799I was really pleasantly surprised with crkt m16's. Got one on sale on a whim. Gets dirt and dust in every knoock and cranny, blade held up really good till I snapped the tip using it at a screw driver. More of a user error I knew that was going to happen and shouldn't of did it sort of thing, other wise it held sharpness really well. The side lugs things make it super easy to open and work as a cross guard. Neat little knife I like them quite a bit.
kers haw. it sharp. it cut thing fast n gud.
>>49212631>We should have more intensive background checks on semi-auto rifles and handguns>they really are reasonable
>>49211708OP's knife is like $14 at Walmart lol.
>>49211648Leatherman skeletool because why not. You're not going to attract hot dudes with your tacticool knife, so you might as well get something functional or beautiful. I went functional.
>>49211708Unless you’re a “knife guy” and appreciate different ones, the $30-50 range is the sweet spot. You get better steels, better locks, and nicer designs. It’ll hold up better to use too. If you lose it, then you aren’t out much. Now if you lose it all the time, take better care of your shit, or if you beat the piss out if your knives (screwdriver, pry bar, etc) then stick to the sub $20 and treat them as replaceable.
>>49212155>no pocket clip>need two hands to openMy gun is my defensive weapon, my knife is utility. However a clip and one handed opening is very nice for practical purposes and not just defensive.
>>49216294he probably gave it an acid bath to make it look weathered or some gay shit like that
>>49212631>they really are reasonableAny gun law is unreasonable. You don’t belong here.
>>49216190Man I really like your knife. I cant think of the name off the top of my head right now but is it worth the price? Is it too heavy for an edc? I'm a Kershaw fan but know how some of their knives are heavy.
>>49216223I got it for 16 or something with tax at a different store from the bargain bin.>>49216266I used mine as a screw driver quite a few times, I made the mistake that I should of hit it with the hilt. It holds together really good for hitting things with on the bottom. Screw was just stuck in a way it needed to get hit instead of turned. I tried using cheaper blades for turning screws they bent A LOT more than these, the flex was kind of worrisome about snapping. crkt had a little flex but I wasn't worried about it snapping side from where it did because it was a tanto model and it had a razor sharp blade at that spot ground down to an angle there just wasn't enough material to do that with at the angle I was doing it because it wouldn't of budged the screw even after we got a screw driver. I ended up hitting it and it just went. Real big difference in trying to turn a blade and how much stretch it gets before you kind of start freaking out about it snapping. I'm honestly really impressed with crkts.
Anyone here ever held one of these? Or even carry? Id like to get my hands on one.
>>49211803>not valuing money, no matter how much it isThis country was built by frugal folks like my parents that valued hard work and money
>>49216556Agreed. People these days grow up and are raised with hand outs and dont appriciate anything.
>>49216603Agreed. I never got any handouts. I had to save up to pay for my first hand job.
>>49211708the same reason some people buy KAC and LMT when BCM and Sionics exist. either they have money to blow and want the best of the best, or they are retards with more money than brains.
>>49211708I get 60% discounts on kershaw’s, shun, and zt’s, so why not.
>>49211803Self-made richfags, hip-hop artists notwithstanding, tend to be measured and reasonable in their expenditure even when they have an abundance of disposable income. It's much harder to get rich when you're wasteful.
>>49212020Using a knife you got from then way back in the day is perfectly fine, how could any of us have known badly things would turn out. I hate them with a passion though I must admit that there are few of their designs that I'd want to try out if their politics weren't so shitty.
>>49211708the mentality you are stuck in is negative. >I can't have a nice thing, because when I lose it I will be upsetthis mindset, while practical, prevents you from enjoying the finer things in life. I am not a rich man, I make 32k a year. But when I am going to go through the trouble of spending that money I want to make it count, especially when that money is being spent on something I use or have on my person every single day. Consumerism is gay, sure. but if you are going to consoom, at least get something that you like.
>>49216548A folding fs knife with a false edgeThe only good part of FS knives are that one edge can dull slower than the other. OTF I'd think maybe. The extreme lack of dexterity and common sense with people using blades in that design you'd probably be better off with a clip point. If you're going to stab things that's not going to do any different than a clip point and you'll get more cutting surface from the curve on a clip.
>>49211934>chip sharpen that shit!!
>>49214922been carrying mine for almost same amount of time. Not bad for like $30.
>>49211648I recently bought these three Buck knives and love them allthe big 110 is really nice because I can open and close it with gloves onI got the plastic handled 112 for a really good discount and I'm probably picking it as my EDC from this point onand the tiny little knife I bought to get free shipping and it's also a qt
>>49211648Same as most days: A.G. Russell Medium Barlow (the lower one in this picture). I'd rather have it with a high carbon blade but it's still a beauty>>49211708>I'd rather lose a $20 knife over a $200 knife.Which is absolutely true. I own lots of folders but I'd never spend more than 100 (absolute max) since I see no reason what makes a knife THAT MUCH better if you spend more. I think my most expensive folder is a Boker AK-101 I bought when I visited the A.G. Russell company a few years ago. But I just bought it for the looks since it's a fuckhueg folder.
>>49211803>be me, spent $350 on pokey stick>shit falls out and gets buried in the dirt Gee, that $350 sure came in handy
>>49211648Buck 110. Normal, not that fancy automatic shit. I love my boomer knife.
>>49211648I've been rotating Chinese Microtech clones for the past two years.Hopefully i'll have a real one soon.
>>49217351i've been carrying pocket knives daily for the past 8 or 9 years and have never lost one (construction and oilfield) , that being said i also don't own any 350$ knives and a 30$ - 60$ knife will probably do everything you reasonably need it to do.
>>49211803Bucko, I make about 150 to 180k per year and I live in bumfuck flyover land. I guess we can agree I'm not a poorfag. Still I would never but knifes above 100 or 150 dollars. Especially not knifes for daily use. Why? Because when you have reached that sum, the knife doesn't get better anymore. It has a great steel, quality mechanics, awesome finish. Spending 200+ bucks on a knife is comparable to a double brarrel shotgun for 10k: At some point you just pay for the name and luxury materials, not for the quality of the mechanism anymore.
>>49211648>What's your edc knife today?The usual, Carter necker in 440c.
>>49211803Insecure, and an animufag? Smells like beta male, pedo spirit.
>>49218070>buckoget in your grave old man
>>49218070You say this until you get your hands on a knife that can cut a piece of hair in half long ways and keeps that edge for a month and you never go back.
>>49218070Man who cares you cocky asshole. You creepy strange entitled probably bald,poodle dog owning jackass. I have no idea who you are and I dislike you.
>>49217497I wish I had that fancy automatic shit
>>49218092>You say this until you get your hands on a knife that can cut a piece of hair in half long ways and keeps that edge for a month and you never go back.So you think only 200+$ knifes can do this? Or do you want me to make a webm of my Mercator and Opinel knifes who can do it just fine?Also>Being able to split a hair is an important argument when buying a knifeKEK!>>49218083The older the bull, the harder the horn. Go cry a little, zoomie boy>>49218120>Man who cares you cocky assholePeople who think that knifes under 200 bucks are a sign of poorfaggotry. Also people who think that knifes somehow get significantly better above 150 bucks.
>>49218257Is there a name for this type of I assume non-locking knife with the bit sticking out so it doesn't close on your fingers?
>>49218288Look at slipjoints and pick one with a nub
>>49211708Thats literally a 20 dollar knife. You fucking imbecile.
>>49211934Little smooth bitch hands and a lanyard faggot tie.
>>49211934I'm trans by the way, in case that matters.
>>49218311No. You aren't. Fake and gay
>>49212155SAKs are cool. But I think they lack:- The scales suck ass when your fingers are not dry- On bigger ones (with more tools) it's surprisingly hard to reach the nail nick of the blade and other tools- I honestly dont want to advertise Switzerland with their stupid logo- Victorinox nowhere tells you which steel they use. Word is it's X50CrMO but thats not sure. Even if: thats 440A level- No pocket clip and no possibility to nigger rig one. And those clips for the ring are a sorry excuse imhoI honestly prefer single blade folders and other blade profiles too (no, not Tantos). SAKs are a little bit too much jacks of all trades masters of none for my taste.
>>49217351I don’t understand how people lose knives so often. They don’t just fall out. If it’s not in my hand being used it’s clipped into my pocket and 99% of knives have pretty good retention.
>>49218275>The older the bull, the harder the horn. Go cry a little, zoomie boyWhat a gay phrase
>>49218371It's because still lots of knife dont have any clips. But even then you're still right. I cannot imagine how you'd lose a knife on a regular base while for example not your keys or your wallet.
>>49218288>nonlockingAre you a boomer or just underage?Its a liner lock knife, aka the handle liner springs behind the blade upon opening to lock it in place. If you mean the thing that acts as a finger guard, it protrudes out the back of the handle when closed and you press it to push open the blade. It’s called a flipper.
>>49218375>What a gay phraseYou think that because it was said by a character who was manlier than most zoomie boys even if said character would have gotten his balls cut off. See, most of the kids nowadays are so warped by the constant influence of fag propaganda they think that classical manly stuff is gay.
>>49218306Butthurt over a knife i carry? Haha whatever man I love my benchmade and my "gay lanyard" best knife ive carried. Thanks for your concern though man!
Carrying my "chipped" bugout today
>>49218407I fucking love my Bugout mini - but more than that, how fucking good is the DLC coating? Dunno about yours man but mine is holding up retardedly well - so many times I've thought "Aha! I've worn it to metal!" and whatever the fuck it was that marked it has wiped off
>>49211648>>49211908>>49212799>>49215173I just bought it when I was drunk off of smokey mountain
>>49218433Right? Ive got a few permanent scratches but somehow a lot of the scratches have just dissapeared after a few uses haha. I love it.
>>49218450I'm actually tempted to get a rifle action DLC'd out of curiosity
>>49211803Hey can you venmo/paypal me $200? That shodnt set you back at all.
>>49211842Casual reminder that benchmade hates gun owners and destroys guns sent to them by the ATF. Do not support them because they hate you.
>>49218585At the end of the day its just a pocket knife. I dont support what they did with the destroying of guns. But whatever
>>49218442Nice! How do you like it?
>>49218275Better materials, better designs, better assembly, better qc, better warranty. I dont understand why this has to be explained, again and again. Yes, a high point with the same length barrel and the same ammunition with do the same thing as a custom $4000+ pistol. If you give a person whos never held a firearm the choice between a cobra carry or a highpoint, which pistol would they choose?
>>49212167Carry that same model for work edc. Very happy with it, lost it a few times and its turned up again. Chinese steel, but its held up great.
>>49218682Great, I'm a waggie deli worker and it's been opening shit just fine
Who makes a decent karambit?
Because I found it brand new in box.Also because not a bad knife.

>>49212631Jidf pls go.
>>49212799I had a dragon that I beat the fuck out of and loved. Then one day it fell under my car seat. That was 3 years ago.
>>49219416if you are looking for something to carry, try Bastinelli. That, or go custom.
>>49211648a leatherman micra
>>49211803Forreal can you send me a few hundred bucks on Paypal? Sounds like I could use it more than you.
>>49218030How much did they cost, and is the steel ok quality? I've been wanting some decently cheap OTFs to play around with.
Thoughts on the benchmade bugout?
>>49211806There are great budget options out there around the 30 - 50 $ range depending on how much you want to spend. I think that most things over this price are for enthusiasts and fanboys
>>49220105>decently cheap OTFI'd highly recommend the Lightening OTFIMO it's the best bang for your buck.
>>49216509The kershaw atmos is a great lightweight edc knife at like 2.0 oz for $35 ish
>>49220147I have two of them. The blackout and the blue one. Its a really good knife. Great steel really light and thin. Its honestly my go to and my favorite edc

>>49221985Is that your logic? Haha
Kershaw makes a nice Emerson
>>49222328That they do I have a couple. Heavy though.
>>49222328Is there even a point of buying a real emerson? I hear their QC is already Kershaw quality. Is it just for the made in USA stamp?
>>49222866at this point you're just paying for the name
>>49211648been carrying the meme knife for a while. I don't particularly enjoy using it, it was made for someone with VERY SMOL HANDS, but the blade shape is great and it is, I have to admit, absolutely brilliant in the pocket. just snuggles right up to my cock and disappears until I need it
>>49221986>they claim D2The chinese version of D2 has been found to be a wee bit off the ASTM spec, a tiny bit extra chromium or whatever but it performs just about as well. quality knife steel
>>49218311When did it become cool to pretend to be a tranny?
>>49211648CRKT M16-10KZ. It's cheap, it's light, it looks kinda cool, and it was at the BX when I realized I lost my Gerber. If I needed a heavy duty knife I'd buy a heavy duty knife.
I got it for "free" (with a $300 minimum purchase) from Uline.

>>49223659I should know I have a very feminine benis btw
I know that trying to fight with a knife without training is dumb but I still think of mine as a last resort for situations where you'd be fucked anyways.
Some chucker sent it to me for free to review on a facebook group I used to run but then I got permaZuccd before I could test itIt's alright, D2 tool steel
>>49223552>Uline>$300So free with purchase of box of trashbags
>>49216509its a Knockout and they can be found on ebay for about $60 i dont see myself replacing it for a very long time. and its not heavy at all.
>>49211648Anyone have any experience with this brand? CJRB? I like the look of it and seems to have good reviews. D2 steel and canvas micarta scales for $39 seems like a solid buy.
>>49223689IDGAF unless you look like a hottie I can take to the club
>>49224108>CJRBis the value nut for Artisan, both lines are made in based Taiyuan and represent good value for the $$. exclusively use Chinese steel versions of regular steels but they work just fine
>>49211648rocking one of these bad boys. left my car hatch open and got shit taken (gotta stop coming home so drunk) and ordered TWO more. Got another one somewhere can't find.Reasons? Big blade but quite thin but still strong but lightweight and holds edge as good as any knife (sometimes China makes good shit). Saw back not "real" saw and just sharp but make quick and perfect notch for paracord.
>>49224443Thanks. Not that I need another EDC. I guess I'll sleep on it for now.
Got my piss yellow AD-20 on me today
Buck makes the 110 and 112 Slim Select. USA made knives that are under $30.
>>49224495You got lucky. My favorite CRKT folder was recently stolen, it was like ~$35 AUS-8 so I wasn't that pissed. I start looking around to get another one. It's now discontinued and apparently I wasn't the only one who loved this knife and it now sells for $125 USED. Fuck me. I put an alert on eBay so it let's me know when listings for this knife are added. A week later I see one is listed for $100 brand new with box and everything. This knife was my go to for times when I needed to carry a "gentlemen's folder". I bought it, but it hurts knowing I paid 3x what I originally paid.
>>49212120I haven't paid attention to BM in years what did they do?
My 293 has stayed sharp af since I bought it from Walmart. Did I do good /k/omrades?
>>49211648Two is one, and one is none
>>49218380No it's gay because you aren't the marlboro man. Stuff like that is said almost exclusively by fat boomers who can't do much and try to overcompensate. At least say a better line like calling him a slack jawed faggot and telling him to chew to turn him into a goddamn sexual tyrannosaur. Neither you or I are Jesse Ventura but it's an absurd line to the point of humor, or if it's fitting then it's great.You do realize that calling everyone a fucking zoomer is no different than them bitching about boomers being dumb and out of touch, right? Boomers don't have an excuse for fucking up, zoomers at least have the excuse of being under 25 and not knowing better.>t not a zoomer
>>49218376What knives besides SAKs and Opinels don't have clips?>I cannot imagine how you'd lose a knife on a regular base while for example not your keys or your wallet.I agree with this completely. It's the same thing
>>49218676There are other companies that make comparable knives that don't hate guns. If I can buy a Ruger or some turkshit for a similar price I'm buying Ruger and not helping turkroaches.
>>49212917>paragon warlock sightedbeautiful
>>49221850>carrying a shitty macheteYou're a felon or a retard. Possibly both.
>>49223552Looks like a Gerber Air Ranger...
>>49216190Nice one. I carry the Kershaw Blur which is similar to that Knockout.
>>49216190that shits never been used
>>49221150literally the factory sharpening. total faggot!
>>49225353Yes sir you did
>>49225353Buck is basado
>>49211648Same knife i've carried for years, an Emerson CQC-7B. Truthfully the fit and finish leave something to be desired for the price, and I wouldn't recommend it over the vast majority of knives in it's price range. But it's been a solid knife and I like it anyway.
>>49218796>better warrantyI guess the ability to do math is why some people have money and others are niggers who think wasteful purchases make them look rich.
my trusty opinel no 8
>>49227802this was my first "favorite knife of all time"I soaked the handle in water and dried it out several times until I made it into a flick knife. absolute stunner overall.
>>49212120Benchmade temporarily moved some manufacturing to China then moved it back after realizing they're not a company like Apple that can keep charging premium prices for chink shit. But the Chinese factory kept churning out the knives and selling them (serves Benchmade right for trying to be jews) so you can buy a Chinese replica that is the same as the real thing.
>>49227724I bought a Buck because it was a reasonable knife for a very reasonable price so I thought I wouldn't hesitate to use it, but I find it's so good-looking that I baby it while using much more expensive knives for heavy tasks.
>>49211648Wouldn't spend more than 60 or less than 20 on a pocket knife. A cheap one will fall apart and I also don't want to risk loosing/ruining an expensive one
>>49228539just don't be a retard and you wont lose it
>>49211648Always this one
AGA Campion 6' Leverlock
crkt has a lot going for ittoo bad they fuck it up by cost cutting to the point they're using the lowest quality materials just to make everything at the $30-40 price point and then have low quality control. a real tragedy so i don't buy their shit
>>49225552My man, these two are my exact knives as well. I only edc the obake but I take it and the recon tanto for camping trips.
Kershaw 1760 skyline. Carried for over 6 years.
Huge fan of replaceable blades, also im from uk and can get away with this in my wallet.
>>49229406go peddle your papers elsewhere, tranny
my Manix 2
>>49225353I hear Buck has really upped their game with some good steels. Do you like this one? Hold an edge well?
I found this knife in the parking lot of the cop shop in Minot when I was in the AF. Carried it since then about 12 years now. Still use it most days, had to replace the screw with my own, its pretty beat up but it still works.
D2, G10 handle, Made in czech rep.Absolute beauty.
>>49211648>carrying any weapon but a tool knife when you already have a gun on youThere is nothing more mall ninja and cringe than this practice.I am objectively correct.
>>49231303Knives are really only useful as a weapon if you are serial killer
>>49218376How often do you pull out your wallet for someone to borrow? In the middle of a workday when someone needs to open a package while you are working, it's easy to lose track of if they gave it back. When you get home and dump your stuff out, you notice immediately. Unfortunately that coworker took it home or missplaced it, and not everyone has the strength of character to replace your tool. I've lost more knives than I can count. It's much harder to lose something that only you use.
Benchmade Griptillian since 2017>>49211648
this thread has convinced me to try a crkt M16. hopefully its not a POS16 hahahah hehehe
>>49231834It's a fine beater knife. It's got 8cr14mov chinksteel which isn't the greatest but the tradeoff is that it's easy to sharpen. If you EDC it sharpen it once a month or so.
Same one I've been carrying for fifteen years.
this thread has convinced me to try a CRKT M16. hopefully its not a POS16 hahahah hehehe
>>49230369a fine knifetoo fat though
Where are all you people finding spearpoint knives? I can't find a single online retailer that sells one.
>>49231919OP here. I didnt know the m16 was so popular. Great little knife you wont be dissapointed if you get one
>>49231882thanks for the... TIP hahaha hehehe>>49232746word I bought two just now.
>>49211648>What's your edc knife today?a $5 knife from harbor freightit's sharp enough for daily activities and if I need something better I can grab one of my real knives
Boker mini Kalashnikov
>>49232987>bought two shitty crkt m16 knifesyou could have bought a good knife with that money
>>49233619Theyre obviously good cheaper knives when half this board owns them haha. Its a knife kid. They all cut. If its 20 dollars or 200 they all the the exact same shit.
this is my next buy.can't make up my mind about the scales...the purple jigged bone looks mighty slick, and also the black sycamore, but plain ebony looks great as well
>>49232987Nice man hope you like them
>>49233743>Theyre obviously good cheaper knives when half this board owns them haha.uh thats not good logic.
>>49233762so he's right for the wrong reasons. seethe.
none of you kids have ever used a folder for anything other than making kindling or opening packages
>>49231762>it's easy to lose track of if they gave it back.No it isnt. It's very easy to remember because it takes 30 seconds.
>>49233874Hey, I cut cheese with mine.
>>49233864no he's wrong on all counts of it being a good knife and its prolificacy on this board meaning it veing goodand buying two costs $60-70 and you can get a better knife like the rat in d2 or the the civivi elementum for $45. instead he gets 2x the trash. absolute brianlet thinking
>>49233902does d2 open packages any better
>>49233874splitting wood with a folding knife is hard use so idk what you meanunless you're talking about stabbing pwople which is sociopathic and antisocial
>>49233921does two shit knives open packages better than one?
>>49233902Well I own one have had it for 5 years and we'll its still here. Sharp,no blade play,centered,no chips. I think that qualifies as a good knife? Arent knives mean to eat with/open stuff/play with/ collect? What's wrong with having a cheap little crkt to do what litterally every single knife in the world does?
>>49233926Batoning wood is different from splitting kindling (also its dumb)Hard use is, say, dressing a game animal, but you'd bring a fixed blade and not a folder.
>>49233955post video of no bladeplay
>>49233945Yes, you can leave one in a truck or give one to a buddy if you had any you weeb
>>49233964No thanks. But why would i lie about that? To prove a point to a hater? Believe me or not man. I stand by mine and enjoy it! But thank you for your concern:)
>>49233988this board is full of liars. you make claims but give no proof. your word is worth less than shit. like psa owners
>>49211648I had a S&W EDC but I almost cut my finger off when trying to close it because I was so comfortable with it. It got stolen out of my car because my locks were faulty.
>>49234010I'm not even him but bro he should not waste his time for your sake, he'd post and you'd be a faggot and move the goalposts
>>49233979>knife so shitty already thinking about giving it away
>>49234022not your bro faggot
My outdoor heavy poker.
OP here. Glad to see this thread stuck to knives and not a weird argument thread about other peoples opinions! Nice
>>49234061shut up faggot. your knife is shit and looks like shit.
People will argue about the most dumb shit haha
>>49234051I used to have this cheap little knife until I dropped it one too many times and it broke
>>49234089Thanks man i like it too!
>>49234051Love my recon 1. I've had an American Lawman for 8-9 years and it's a great EDC knife
>>49234292I've always wanted the American lawman. Couple questions before I buy it. Is it lighter than the recon? How much smaller? Because the recon for me is just too big and heavy to edc
>>49234292>called the american lawman>made in China
>>49211648A no name chink shit knife with a seat belt cutter and glass breaker and a Gerber sometimes.
Today I carry my moderately modified Buck 119.
serious question - is it worth having an edc if i never leave the house?
>>49230276I own the same knife, after the shenanigans that bitchmade did, they became gay. So go fuck yoursef.
>>49234823I like that spine work
>>49234949Yeah so you don't have to get up and grab something like a knife or flashlight when you need emSuits the lazy life
>>49234977thanks i might just go with spyderco or something small then, nothing crazy
>>49231834I was not impressed with the liner lock quality on the models I have handled. There are much better options for the same money, even among CRKT's other offerings. pic related
>owning a bad knifei will not be doing such a thing.
>>49234996Plus if you are a fidgety fucker they make great things to play with at your desk or watching TV
>>49234953Thanks. Cheap diamond files and fine abrasive paper is all it takes.>>49231834>Kerhaw Hinderer This is also a better option.
>>49235037I own that knife too.
>>49234949For sure. I often keep a Leatherman around for how often I have to do minor repairs or tighten a screw here and there at home. That, and I also tend to leave my normal pliers and screwdrivers near the last unfinished job I was doing. Redundancies help accommodate the lazy man.
I've tactically opened a zillion packages with this and cut up cardboard
>>49232516Oh, wait. Sorry. I got my terms wrong. Dagger, not spearpoint. Like, both sides are sharp.
>>49231464Patrician taste. I'd like to get a Microtech but I can't justify the price and proprietary screws. Worth it?
>>49233874And insulation, and drywall, and that really fucking nasty glass fiber-filled tar roofing sheet stuff.Nobody likes faggots like you, but there's still one in every damn knife thread.
>>49229406Boo hoo nigga
>>49233874What exactly do you want a folding knife for? Tactical knife fights? I wouldn’t really trust any locking mechanism on a folding knife if you get into a scuffle.
>>49235037Love my Kershaw hinderer. Makes me want to pony up for an actual hinderer.
>>49237245i wouldprobably because I'm not an uninformed retard though
I have a question, I’m looking for a good quality fixed blade knife for my edc but I’m not coming up with many results I like, I’m looking for something in the fighting/tactical type with around a 5 inch fixed blade, good build quality, any suggestions?
>>49218354I believe it's 1.4110 that they use. So X50 or X55 is about accurate. Also, there's aftermarket titanium scales with clips and much more grippiness, that is if you're willing to pay the price.
>>49237245Go the other way with that logicIts not that I want a folder for OPERATIONZ is that, since folder tasks are so low-stakes, just buy a $20 knife and reallocate the rest of that money into ammo.There's no point in owning $$$ in folders that you cut tendies with
>>49239110Some of us like to pay more for nice things. Much like buying steak over hamburger
>>49231322>he isn't a serial killercannot possibly ever make it
>>49237259Nice lineup. That Leek was my gateway in to knives. Received one as a gift and carried it daily for 3 years before I started to learn about steels, sharpening, and other manufacturers.
>>49231991You're right she is thicc. I downsize to an old Kershaw Leek or Natrix when I have to wear tighter fitting pants. They skinny
>>49236353For a double edge, your options are most likely an OTF knife (Microtech), a balisong (can't think of which companies off the top of my head), or a fixed blade (Cold Steel, Gerber, etc.) Not sure what country you are in, but they can easily be found in the US
Doubles as a screwdriver (yeah, i do want it reground tho)
>>49237759>>49239292Yeah. The hollow-ground blade with clip point is literally designed for flesh. You'll want to make it grippier with tape or by texturing the handle. An aftermarket sheath, probably in thermoplastic, is also advised. >>49218354They have a place. I use the scissors on mine all the time, because pressure on both sides of a cut is so often useful for me. The blades also slice really well and don't scare people when you don't want to draw attention to yourself. Considering that they're lighter than most pliers oriented multitools, there's no excuse to not carry one model or another.
kershaw knockout>$80 USA made>light for its sizeI just like it
OP here.Mini grip today. Taking it camping for the first time.
>>49234106The Recon 1 isn't cheap or little, wtf are you smoking? It isn't expensive, but it's not cheap, and it is massive for a folder
>>49240350Right? Here's it next to my Glock.
>>49211803Ignore those fags asking for money, they're worthless leaches.But can you send me a few boxes of .40 S&W please?
>>49237245I'll give you some advice on how to use a folder successfully in a knife fight: hit them with the sharpened edge and tip and not the spine of the blade. You are welcome.
>>49231303>>49231322You know there are more uses for knives than stabbing people, right? I use mine for work.
Never seen one of these in a knife thread. CS AD10
>>49240414Hell yea man i love the dragonfly for my edc backup. Whats the big knife?
Recommend me a knife for work. I have to cut up and dispose of tons of shit people try to sneak in. Cigarette cartons, fake purses, cut through shit for drugs. I get 60% off a Benchmade knife but don't wanna support grabbers
>>49240574Also, I have pretty large hands so some of the mini knives are no good. I'd like something serrated but not sure if a tanto blade would work better than a normal curve. Kinda like this one desu. Black is boring
>>49240574A bunch of moraknivs. I wouldnt personally use a nice knife for gruntwork.
>>49240574get the cold steel voyager xl and just eviscerate things
>>49240631Kek, just googled it. Would be funny as fuck to destroy 3 duffle bags of fake Gucci purses while the Chinese ladies who smuggled them in scream at me while I wield that. But a little too big kek>>49240599Isn't a good knife supposed to be used?
>>49230781Looks pretty similar to what I use since 6 years. I like the little crossguard it has since I am clumsy.
>>49230781>but it still works.looking at that blade i think it'd take a considarable amount of effort to "still work" if it wasn't for the serrations
>>49240574>>49240662How about the Spyderco Endura in K390 steel and fully serrated edge? K390 isn't stainless, but holds an edge very well, and the endura's blade is only 2mm shorter than that of the BM Adamas. Grip is thinner though, but it also is less than half the weight so itll carry nicer.
>>49240778I have this knife. 110% reccomend it.
>>49240495https://www.bladehq.com/cat--Naja--3297Civivi has excellent QC for imports.
>>49240778>>49240935Oooh thanks anons. I will check it out
WTF happened to "zero launch"?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qnstAkV63DkSeems like better idea than VTOL in many ways.What if such was "baked in" from the start? Launch sideways off helio carrier or even rear deck of frigate and they'd have to land somewhere else but now we got A2A refueling so not as much as issue.Now with everyone and his uncle got long range semi-accurate rocket artillary and cruise missiles seems like keeping all your combat jets on big airbase and its big runway seems more of an issue than back in Steve's day.How about a "baked in" jet rocket combo with LIQUID fuel rocket for both zero launch AND emergency speed. Yeah, I know jet w/rocket motor been tried before but that was back in Cold War and issues have "evolved" and we got better tech.
>>49240242its my favorite folder ever
>>49242167nice. this will make /k/ absolutely seethe. you actually reminded me that I have a knife by that brand that I abuse as a beater knife and its held up to whatever I do to it.
I've got this thing
>>49237072Definitely worth it. Cant take it apart though, it voids the warranty. which is something you definitely dont want to do to a $500+ knife
can't find a fucking scout sheath for a dagger for the life of me that's not some shitty leather knockoff
