Its a shame they are switching so much production to china, my dad had an old one from Japan before he lost it, that was a good knife.

Yeah. You can still get one of their US models. They still have them. My brother has one.

I currently have a spyderco I posted not long ago that replaced my kershaw. I still hope I find it. That was my favorite knife. This spyderco is a very close 2nd though. If this spyderco had the flip blade opener thing, spyderco would win.

I believe he got his for free and it came with the crappy sheath. So I decided to give it an upgrade.

Just got this leek to replace my clash after the tip got bent from trying to pry open my rear slider (gf locked keys in car, i was drunk, broken window, sad day ) i love kershaw knives, this thing is super sharp and looks killer. I think i got lucky, picked it up from walmart but the box it was in said Made in USA.

Haha, you didn't get lucky. All kershaw leek models are made here.

Careful though, the tips on these bend easily too.

Ahh thanks for the info, I did get lucky on the price though. $50 at Walmart and kershaws website says $99.99. I don't plan on trying to pry anything else with my knife but thanks for the heads up!

The Kershaw was a 10 dollar purchase on woot, and impressed me enough to buy 3 more, it's not the greatest steel, but it cuts reliably and the assist open works every time, it's solid enough to EDC and cheap enough to not freak out over if it gets lost.

The CRKT was also a woot purchase, but has pretty much been a disappointment. It's too small to open/use with one hand, and the dust it's collected on the shelf has made the assist function pretty much fail. (Opens halfway and needs another nudge.)

The cold steel was a gift. It's sharp, and the build quality feels pretty good. However, for my use and preference, it's too large to carry all the time and the blade shape is "more show, than go." This knife has been in a desk drawer for the 2 years I've owned it.

The Benchmades are my current EDC knives.

The Triage (bottom knife, bottom picture) is less than 4 months old, and is very impressive. Has held a decent edge, and is very versatile. The blunt tip was my main reason for buying, it has proved to be very convenient. I ended up buying one for close friend as a wedding present. It gets used every day. My biggest complaint is that one of the belt clip screws disappeared and I had to remove the clip for a few days to keep it from
Coming all the way off while I figured out the screw size/pitch, and then found an equivalent.

As someone who works obscure/long/abnormal hours... It was very annoying that Benchmade doesn't;

A) loc-tite their hardware
B) include spare hardware with their (extremely expensive) knives
C) list hardware sizes on their website
D) provide spare hardware to dealers
E) LOC-TITE THE HARDWARE

Benchmade clip hardware is 2-56 x 3/16" long, using a .050 Allen key, in case you were wondering.



The Bone Collector Axis... (Top knife, bottom picture) is downright amazing. It's MSRP is significantly lower than the Triage, and it has fewer "features," but the knife is awesome. It's solid, REALLY solid. The blade spine is 1/8th inch thick and the D2 steel edge can take a decent beating and stay sharp. The handle and liners have just the right amount of heft to be very comfortable and balanced. The handle is very comfortable and really pretty.

I also carry either a leatherman supertool 300 or OHT daily.
