What's your pocket knife? What ya suggest to go with?
 
Ive been lurking for a while. Wanna ask for your advice. First thread;

I've had my old SOG Flash II for 5+ years, It's a fantastic knife, clips easily into my pocket and is functional immediately after drawing. But it was out of work the other day. Now I have to move on to a new one. I've just looked into this Pocket Knife. Is it nice one to go with? Will I be disappointed? Any other options?
I'm sure there are plenty of other pocket knife peeps out there, what do you carry and why?

I have two Kershaw Ken Onion Leek models that I really like. I also have two scallions and have been happy with them as well. I dont think you can go wrong.

I've gone back to traditional. My old Camilus Yellow Jacket model 714. It's a nice little "Muskrat Trapper" style knife with two identical blades. Opens everything from boxes to trout (the stocked ones in lakes okay?). Not fancy, but it works & to me has a clasic look & feel.

I use Benchmade. You dont have to break the bank with a Benchmade knife either. You can get a Griptilian which is still made in the US for $90-$100

I carry a Leatherman Wave and also a Gerber Freeman Folder, which is pretty heavy duty for a folding knife. Even for a folding knife the Gerber could pass as a survival knife.

The Leatherman has come in handy lots of times.

I also have a few different waves. Never have done me wrong. One stays in my vest the other lives at the bench.

For about 20yrs I carried an Uncle Henry Jr for every day. 2 7/8"

For about the last year I've been carrying a Moore Maker trapper,

in a holster like this because it's 4"+ long.

I carry a Leatherman Pulse at work. A Gerber EZ-Out or a Schrade SP3 in my vest. A Schrade LB7 4" lockback when hunting.
