    image.jpg Picked up my Sage 2 finally. I actually really like it. I was worried about it being too slick and smooth but it's got good grip. Next up might be the Benchmade 940. For now I really think I'll love this Sage for EDC. I don't do any camping or extreme work with my knives. Just love having one on me for stuff. Mostly opening kids toys for my 2 year old girl.

    Very nice. Just clean and simple. Good blade design for slicing tasks.

    I would probably go for the Kershaw. Spyderco does make a good quality product. Check out CRKT too. Best thing to do is find a place you can handle the various knives and see which you like best.

    The only other comment I'd have is for an EDC knife, you probably want to avoid the fixed blade and stay with a folder for every day use.

    The Spyderco Tenacious is their version of one of the best budget pocket knives I've ever come across, the Benchmade Vex. Since the Vex is no longer available, I'd recommend the Tenacious for sure.

    Thanks guys for the advice. I think I will go with the spyderco Tenacious since the great reviews and it might fit in my hand better.

    When you get into $60+, the field opens up a lot. The Blur is a good choice if you want something pretty beefy for the pocket. The Spyderco Endura wave is a crazy nice knife for $60, but it can be a little scary to office workers when you whip out a 4" knife. The Delica wave is the same but about 3". It comes down to what you want.

    I think you'll like the Tenacious. I also think you'll end up with 10 knives if you're not careful. They tend to multiply.

    I think I will get the Tenacious first and see how I like it. I will start a list though of good knives like the Blur. Thanks for the tips. Btw, how do you guys sharpen your knives ?

    For sharpening, it depends on what I'm doing. For long kitchen knives, I have a Chefmate electric sharpener. For reprofiling new knives or fixing bad damage, I have a 10" diamond-embedded rod. For pocket, hunting & survival knives, I have a Spyderco Sharpmaker. I just bought a Smith's 3-sided stone to keep the new carving chisels I bought nice and keen. I also made a two-sided strop that I run blue & red rouge on for final polishing.

    I will put the Sogzilla on the list , looks like a good cheap knife. Do you say that you dont love the knives because that blade sharpener is not good on knives ?

    I have the tenacious and after getting one of spydercos more expensive knives (PM2) the quality is night and day, i would much rather get a kershaw than a lower quality spyderco.

    I forgot to mention this would be an EDC and I forgot it was fixed blade but it does look like a nice knife.
    PM2 with camo handle is definitely something I would like but I think it would be too expensive for my first real knife.
