I know Glock sells survuval type knives, but I'm looking for something that I can carry everywhere. I have two Schrade folders, but I'm still wondering if there's something a little bit more abuse resistant than something purchased at Wal-Mart. Anyone got any ideas? I'm looking for something that is small enough to practically carry all the time legally (less than the length of an average man's hand). Thanks all!

I don't think you can go wrong with a Spyderco Endura or Delica (smaller). Lightweight, serrated or straight edge and under $ 50 many places online. I've had the same Endura in my pocket at work for the past 15 years.

Those knives are more like a Custom 1911, not a glock, although they cost as much as one.

As soon as I saw the topic, I also thought of the Sebenza by Chris Reeve Knives. Simplicity of design, few parts, great performance.

Junglee, Columbia River. If you want to spend more Benchmade.

Not too expensive for daily carry but durable enough to handle the Job.:cool:

i would say that spyderco is the glock of the knife world.
crknives are the wilson's of the knife world.
micro tech is the sig of the knife world
bench made is the beretta of the knife world.

Along with Spyderco, I also would suggest SOG. Along the same lines and perform just as well. You can get a nice SOG AutoClip for $50 or less. I have had several Spyderco and SOG knives and have been very pleased with both.

just my $.02;a

As a KNIFE NUT, I found this thread VERY interresting! I also thought I might see that Mayo guy around here ;)


I would give the William Henry line of knives consideration.

williamhenryknives.com


What would you guys compare the Stryder folders to in the gun world???

If you want an Every Day Carry that you can take nearly anywhere (meaning blade length likely 3" or less), here's some recommendations:

1) Sypderco: Lil' temperance leaf blade
Calypso Jr lightweight (discontinued I believe)
Delica

2) Benchmade: Minigriptillian (this is what I chose)

3) Camillus EDC - the newest verson comes in 154CM

There's a bunch of other options, but these are solid, rugged, EDCs, that differ in blade shape/locking mechanism/grip and blade material. Pick your favorite combo and overall "look", but I don't think you could go wrong with any of these!

Regards,
Cedric

benchmade all the way! excellent knives!

as far as pricing of these other knives...

website says the Sebenza handles are Ti-6Al-4V. Talk about overkill!! Ti6/4 is a superplastic used for airframes, rockets, rocket engines and the like. Is this the ideal MacGuyver knife? "Passenger saves the day with his pocket knife when the left engine threw a turbine blade!!" ;a

Very nice steel for the blades!! No wonder these things cost so much! Send me one and I'll be glad to compare it with my Benchmade! ;f

I have had a couple of sog folders for several years. One is the tomcat the other is the same size but has a thingy on it for one handed opening. Both normal smooth blades and pretty nice. They rarely get carried unless I am camping.

I love my spyderco harpy. All metal. I had a smaller spyderco, endura I think, with the plastic handle and clip. I lost it one day while working as it was light and the plastic clip does not attach strongly.

I take all metal spydercos and remove the clip, twist to make it really tight then locktight the three mini screws that hold the clip back on. My harpy has a curved serrated blade. It cuts anything, I use it for cheap wire on occasion as well. I abuse it and have never broken the point though I might be known to work screws with it or maybe wiggle things with it. I did buy the spiffy rods for sharpening serrated stuff and will spend some time, maybe an hour or more, just putting this thing back to perfect.

I am working a bit again, and I plan to get two more of these if I can find them at an ok price as I love the hooked blade. It cuts fast and hard.

I used to collect knives, and I find spyderco goes with me. So does a glock. I sold a few of the wood display cases of knives from a shrade and case, kept one of each. I have well over a couple grand in knives running around.

The sogs are nice but I have reglued on their rubber grips and have had the mechanism get iffy for locking due to pocket lint. Spyderco clicks open even with a bunch of lint.
