    Very dangerous knife. Especially if worn unconcealed

    I like the frame lock, assisted open, flipper ZTs- 301. I have a mini cqc-8 and that sucker opens faster than any auto or flipper, and I choose to carry the ZT because I like the look of it more. I would get a cqc-15 if I needed another Emerson, which I don't.

    I have a knife on me a lot more often that I do a pistol and it feels good to have that in your pocket when something you observe makes your hairs stand up on the back of your neck (and you temporarily forfeit your right to carry due to the contents of your glass).

    Dress knife- MT LUDT
    Everyday- 90% ZT 301, 10% horseman
    Outdoors- swamp rat ratmandu or backwoods custom

    This saves me a lot of typing.

    Keep in mind all hands are different sizes. What feels good to me may not for you.

    Go to a large knife store. Play with a lot. Even if you have to travel a ways it'll save you in the end.

    I like the Emerson 8. Maybe a Roadhouae but never handled one. Many food recommendations here. May work for them but not me. Same will apply to you.

    Agreed. It seems to me that a lot of folks are not looking for martial blades, so much as utility blades that they can press into service in a pinch.

    I don't even know how to respond to that? Tdi's have no retention and are easily recognized as a knife, bad combo in a fight

    ~$390 is even a deal. Good buy.
     
  13. i like my Benchmade Elishewitz 730..

    super fast opening with the axis lock. i did get the slightest movement in the blade. i quick (very quick) visit to the factory for a knife spa day worked. they retrofitted some new bushings. it is super smooth, super fast, super solid.

    i love that knife. in defense..i would suck with my zero training. unless my attacker was a bagel.

    my first move is to run :)

    Do you think that Lynn Thompson is paying Ernie Emerson any royalties for that Wave feature?

    Sorry, just a thought.

    For the price, grip, weight, ease, clip, etc.. I think the Gerber Fast Draw series is really good. I had never been a fan of the lower end knives but I really liked mine.... until I recently misplaced or lost it. No biggie, cheap enough to replace.

    Update- found it, where I had already looked. Happy, Happy, Happy.
