Mine (decided to make this fairly verbose... but I'd definitely be interested in even simple lists from others): - For a year or two I carried a Spyderco Rescue and Police on random occasions (so couldn't really consider either a EDC)... their serrated edges were great for some tasks and I liked the tumbhole opening... however they just proved too heavy and bulky in my pants for regular carry. - Carried a black aluminum Kershaw Leek for about a year. Loved the speedsafe opening mechanism immediately. One day I couldn't find it... turned out it had fallen between my keyboard and monitor on my desk and I'd given up the search and decided to spring for ordering the G10 version of the Leek by the time I'd found it. I gifted the aluminum one to my dad and he's happily used it to this day. - The G10 Leek was very good to me. The grip was a bit thicker than the aluminum Leek, but I really liked the grippiness the G10 offered. The one con was that the grips were a bit rough on my dress pants. Sadly this past Halloween while at a "Fright Farm", I think it was snagged out of my jeans while sitting in a nylon folding chair and lost in the field... and unlike the prior Leek, this time it was truly lost. I still remain a fan of the speedsafe, got a G10 Leek for one of my groomsmen at my wedding... and will likely get my wife a rainbow Leek as her first "purse knife". - While I contemplated just replacing the G10 Leek in kind, I decided to do some research to see if I wanted to splurge a bit into the upper-mid range brands like Benchmade. After looking around I decided to try a Benchmade 707 Sequel that had dimensions very similar to the 3" Leek. I have to say, I've been extremely pleased with it. While it's G10 inserts are not quite as grippy as the full G10 of the Leek, it's a lot gentler on my dress pants. I'm also a big fan of the beefier profile of the blade. While the AXIS lock took a bit more practice to open than the speedsafe of the Leek, I'm now equally fast with it. I have to say I'm also a fair bit more confident in the lockup of the AXIS lock than I was with the one on the G10 leek. While the Aluminum leek used a leaf of metal of the entire grip for locking, the G10 Leek only used a thin piece of inner metal for locking. Granted, the G10 Leek was still very rigid and never let go on me... but the design of the AXIS lock inspires far more faith in me. In conclusion, my EDC knife pursuit has been a fun one save for the heartbreak of losing my Leek. I'm now much more aware of moving my Benchmade to my front pocket when sitting in awkward chairs where I'd worry about it falling out... and it was worth it to bring me to the Benchmade, which is definitely the best EDC knife I've owned. I'll definitely expand my knife collection for other specific-purpose knives... but I don't see any knife toppling the 707 for the foreseeable future. Maybe someday I'll feel rich enough to look at the likes of a Chris Reeve mini Sebenza ... but for now, I'm quite happy with Benchmade.
