I like to switch things up, but for the last few months I have been carrying a Spyderco Dragonfly at work (business environment) and have been very happy with it.

Don't let its size fool you, it is very useful and can tackle some pretty hefty jobs.

When I am not carrying that, it is usually a Delica 4 or Mini Grip.

This is what I carry. Got tired of pocket clips snapping on me.

Good thread Eric. The Cutting Edge could use more representation

Spyderco endura wave in left pocket. Zt 300 in back right pocket

The last time I had a clip break was when Spyderco was making the original Endura. The clips were molded from the FRN.

Out of my first few years in the Army I may have bought three that I abused and/or died of tip or clip breakage and the tip was from me and my buddies throwing it into the back side of Fort Polk's encampments in the box.

Any SOG Twitch XL owners out there? If so your experience with this knife would be appreciated.

Benchmade Bedlam/Rukus clips are designed to break, I've broken 3 of them.

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.

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

There ain't many troubles that a man can't fix with $700 and a .30-06.

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.

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.
