    Very nice. Kershaw knives are far and away the absolute best value in my opinion. Damned fine production blades for a very reasonable price.

    Number 2 on that list would be Spyderco, I own several of each.

    Lost a Benchmade Don Pardue at a recent IDPA match - the club was great trying "lost and found" - I have a number Of backups. Started carrying a CRKT ltd Ed FD version of the M16

    Thank you, I know what you mean. It's my "Business Knife", and I've actually had two occasions where I had a genuine use for it. Both were real live "Oh crap, I need my knife" type moments, and both times it was when I was caught up in some nylon and working with a treestand (bowhunters, you either know what I mean, or you one day will).

    I thought about getting another as a spare, but I was disappointed to find out that they were out of production. The manuals aren't, but I can't find another auto anywhere.

    Not an everyday knife, but it's seen more than it's fair share of field time.

    Now that I have seen Benchmade it would be hard to look at other makes.

    You're welcome. I think that side opening Microtechs are underrated.
    My SOCOM has a born date of 3/99 (new). I like it, no cool story yet.
    Also have an auto Kestrel and Amphibian:supergrin: that I will never trade.

    Allow me to be clear... Kershaws are the best knives for the dollar. That said, I'm positive you made a good choice with your Benchmade. A little more spendy, but worth every penny for the quality of the steel alone. I own several, and I'm particularly fond of the Osborn models.

    You have an heirloom in your 585, it's going to last you.

    The Kestrel fits my hand like it was custom made, going to have to get one of those one of these days... either one; manual or auto, both are great.

    I like a big belly on a field knife, not just for skinning, but for precise work, too... what is that, something you put together yourself?

    My dad made it and a matching machete for me when I was around 8. D2, brass, and hickory. The machete went missing for several years, recently turned up in pretty rough shape, so I've been working on it for the last couple of days. Should turn out pretty well.

    Here's my first OTF - a ProTech Dark Angel.;

    will probably be a social carry as opposed to EDC until I get some real miles on it.

    Just bought my cold steel trident, black blade and handle, half serrated. 50 bucks at the exchange, deployment is awesome. Sog pocket clips rule. Gimping is way too shallow but its a utility knife not my combat tool.

    I have and use that knife in tacticool black. A best buy for around $25.
    The pocket clip isn't to good, other than that a solid knife.

    In honor of this thread, I used a Chris Reeve Green Beret fixed blade to cut up a some fowl .
    It was touch and go for a few minutes, luckily, no injuries were sustained by the user.:whistling:

    ALso, there is a classic Sebenza in the rotation.
