    yeah i’m about to go look at SOG’s site. my current and last knife had parcel serration. I kinda like it but not a deal breaker. I have one knife thats like $20 but just super super light and thats the main reason i don’t carry it. it stays in the center console of the truck. kinda funny i think every pair of jeans and shorts i have have fray marks on the pockets from clicking knifes on them. But unlike dad they open easy and are not full of pocket lint. lol

    I have a leek

    I broke the tip off very quickly and I wasn't prying or using it as a screwdriver



    The blur is EASILY my favorite pocket knife that I've ever owned...it's not as durable as my Strider, but it's not as heavy either...the Blur opens easier than anything I've ever used and it just feels RIGHT in the hand period

    this is the one I have

    Whatever you do, avoid taking it apart. If you do, do it somewhere you can find a tiny ball bearing that launches out of the internals into oblivion.

    I took mine apart every other year and cleaned it up, removed lint from the action and grease it up. Every single time I was being super careful and patient. Every time I lost the BB and had to look for it for 10 minutes.

    Damn I miss that knife.

    Does this Buck has a D2 blade? If yes it is a pain to sharpened.

    I would've opted for the tanto but I didn't have a lot of choice considering the deal I got

    I paid i think $45 because I got the employee discount at PSA because I was seeing one of the spokesmodels at the time and they only had the 1 blade style in stock

    That's about what I figured. Really is so fragile looking I really think that it would snap immediately if I had to cut with a lot of downward pressure on the tip.

    I have not had to really clean any knifes. i think it has to do with the fast i use the clip and clip it on my pocket instead of being loose down in the pocket where all the fine lint never seams to get out of. If and when i clean than i just use compressed air like what you clean computers with. sometimes i’ll wash the blade off after i skin a squirrel or use it as a steak knife when all the others are dirty. lol

    Its the only folder I've cleaned. It would get gummed up with syrups and lint would stick that way. Once every other year was great.

    I have no need for a folder but i really want to find it.

    Either normal belt sheath on my right side at 4:30 o'clock or if I feel the need to, scout style in small of my back.

    Oddly enough, CA knife law allows carry of fixed blade knives without a blade length restriction but they cannot be carried concealed. I either carry a customized BK14 or a Fallkniven F1.

    oh. i like the Trident a lot a bit more than i was thinking of spending. but i think you get what you pay for with MOST knifes. whats the “cutter” or what ever you want to call it for on the back side?

    For me it makes more sense to have a fixed EDC. It makes everything easier.

    The only somewhat difficult thing is the concealment restriction. If I'm somewhere it needs to be low key I carry scout style and it is concealed there. I don't normally carry that way, just when the need arises.

    I have 3 sheaths.for the F1, handmade leather, the factory sheath, and a kydex sheath. One day I'll get a new one with TekLok, but for now I have maybe 8 inches of paracord in an X shape and pretty tight, I slide.my belt through the X and it allows me to carry vertical or horizontally. Cheap and effective.

    Trident isn't cheap but if you ever are able to handle one, I would. I think its marketed as a seatbelt cutter? Maybe not. I didn't use it except cutting occasional fine rope or similar. That feature didn't get much use since if I needed to cut something I used the knife.

    I've never used a seatbelt cutter. Doesn't Benchmade have a folder kinda designed for first responders? It seems legit.
