    I currently carry a Smith and Wesson M&P knife while on duty but the spring assist for it has malfunctioned making it unable to fully open on it's own. I was thinking about getting a new one before this but now I am definitely purchasing something else. What would you suggest for on duty carry?

    SOG Trident half-serrated. Good assisted opening, reversible clip, decent texture, cord cutter, etc. A little spendy if you're coming from a $20-$40 knife, but I have had my pair for three or four years and they're still going strong.

    If you can find a way to carry a fixed blade, you wouldn't have to worry about some mechanism going bad. Plus, pullin a Ka-bar out sends a certain message. I'm just sayin. :supergrin:

    For assisted opening knives, the Kershaw/Ken Onion series can't be beat.

    CRKT makes good knives and not too expensive. I have yet to break my M-16 big dog in 5 yrs. of everyday duty use.

    For a $30-40 knife I'm a big fan of the Cold Steel Voyager.

    I have a Benchmade 5500 Presidio, it is the only auto knife I have ever owned, but it has held up well over the years. I also have a Strider PT G10 as well and it is built like a tank, easily the most durable folder I have had to this point, but it weighs as much as a tank too. Not much fun to carry on a pocket so I stick with the old discontinued Spyderco Tim Wegner liner lock most of the time.

    I gotta concur, in a recent similar thread I posted "Spyderco Delica" and I do love my Spydie; but I bought a Tactical Blur and it is a helluva knife.

    I have had a Spyderco for 15 plus years. Never an issue. Not the cheapest, not the most expensive. It has put up with a lot. But I do not use it as a pry bar, hammer or screwdriver......too often.

    Kershaw Blackout

    Kershaw Blur

    Ontario RAT model 1 (My current EDC and On duty knife)

    Spyderco Native

    All these should fit the bill nicely. :wavey:
