    Hi folks. I am curious about what knife brands and models are the most popular and most used. Please take a moment to post the brand and model of knife you carry/use the most. Once this thread runs it coarse, I'll take the top twenty-five brands/models mentioned and start a poll thread, to find out the pecking order. I appreciate your input. Eric


    Btw, I mostly carry a Benchmade 940 Osborne. EP

    Kershaw Skyline. Good handle material, good steel, great price. USA made and you can sometimes even find them at Walmart.

    I usually carry a Benchmade Mini-Griptillian in OD green with a black combo blade. Alternately, and rarely, I have a Buck Esquire and a Leatherman Wave.

    For right now I'm carrying the Spyderco Delica 4. Still carry my Kershaw Blur off and on. Been wanting to try one or two of my Cold Steel blades.

    On duty I carry this, it is a fairly stout and impressive folder.

    The rest of the time I often carry one of those cheap little Swiss Army knifes with the tweezers and toothpick

    Chris Reeve Umnumzaan, Emerson Super Roadhouse, Benchmade 810 Contego, and Zero Tolerance 0560 are my current carry knives. Yes I carry all 4 most of the time.

    bench made guy. I'm not sure what you call hte one i carry but opens and closes when you pull the two little retaining pins down that are on either side. you hold 'em down the blade swings open and closed freely, let 'em go and it locks open or closed.

    For work, I carry Lone Wolf Knives CPM-S30V(Butch Vallotton Designer). Off work, it's a Microtech U.D.T. 4437. I don't carry my Benchmades any more.
