I carry a Zero Tolerance 301 custom profiled to about 20 deg, a spyderco C36GTiP, Unknown Model Gerber with a wharncliffe type blade, and a victorinox farmer. Yes, all at once, yes everyday.

Kershaw, usually a Leek; alternatively, a Scallion.

Always have a Victorinox Classic in one of the pockets, too.

Spyderco Kiwi for office work.

Part of the rotation of blades.

Benchmade Assisted Opening Knives

Looking for a Benchmade Assisted Opening knife in the 3-3.5 inch blade length (not serrated). Any suggestions?

You didn't mention what you want to use it for (which is fine), so this is probably the best all-around blade configuration for daily use, defense, emergency situations, etc. It's not ideal for dressing out a grizzly or skinning a fish, but it's a useful design anyway.

580 Osborne

Shop around, you may find a better price. Good luck.

Look, I think those knives are gorgeous, but they are not something I would use as an EDC.

Do you really think that buying and carrying a $400 + knife for EDC is the way to go?

Knife art has its place, do not get me wrong. Skilled and talented craftsmen in blade making is something to behold. However, I would not deem those types of knives worthy to cut open boxes and abuse as one of my EDC blades. I would want to keep it in my collection to behold and fondle.

FWIW, I carry my Rajah II in my right front jeans pocket and my second carry is in my left front pocket is a mixture of Spyderco Para2, Manix2, Cold Steel Recon1, or a Spartan. My ankle carry is a Spyderco Native.

When I go running I slap on one of my Kbar TDI knives. Great sheaths and clip ons.

I carry at least 3 blades on me at all times.

Lastly, make sure you get back with us on what you buy. Knife art, like the one you want, is still something to awe at.

The Nitro Flipper will be mine.

Thanks. All around blade, EDC is what I had in mind. Any suggestion with a bit smaller blade that is assisted opening?

You don't need a Ferrari to get through the drive through at Mc D's, neither, but why not if you can?

The first tool was probably the hammer, the second was most likely a poking stick of some sort, but almost assuredly the knife is third. Since then, one of those has improved in materials, design, and workmanship, to include absolutely absurd levels of durability and strength. No one's got a legitimate reason to own a Land Rover here in Ohio, yet I see plenty on the road. And they're getting used, as was intended. Not a thing wrong with it, in fact.

Personally, I think spending many hundreds on a superlative cutting implement, and NOT using it is wasteful. And I'm not talking aesthetic knife art, either... opening a box from Amazon with knife made from talonite that costs more than your mortgage payment is an absolute joy.

It's up to you, Larry. Google "Benchmade Assisted Opening", and you'll get multiple choices in a variety of price ranges.

Good luck.

I've gone through a few pocket clip knives. But I always go back to my Case XX knives. For the longest time, I've liked the trapper pattern. Usually switching back and forth between the medium and large. My latest one (and I think it'll be my favorite) is the trapperlock I just bought a few weeks ago.

Why wouldn't I use my $400 knife as an EDC, and actually use it? That happens to be exactly the amount I paid for a used regular Sebenza with Snakewood inlays, and even with me home on disability it sees the light of day many times over. It's not just a work of art, it's very high quality and feels great in the hand.

It's the trapperlock, no backspring so it flips nicely.

For me it's either a Boker Pocket Bowie pictured or Kershaw Leek.

When I'm camping, or working "in the back 40" I carry, and use, a Mora sheath knife with a thumbgard.

Think I'm going to take mine out of the cabinet and give it a try. Maybe carry it and the Delica also.

Thanks, finally decided to get my first Benchmade. Ordered the Barrage 585, plain edge. All around best choice for me. Got to try it yesterday at the Crossroads of the West Gun Show. Smooth assisted opening, solid blade, and good feel in the hand. Thanks again for your help.
