    I actually have a jeep now. Imagine that.
    i LOVE benchmade, however one of the factors i consider in buying a knife is the fact that it has a good chance of getting lost. Aside from that, I just got a CRKT knife that I found at a knife store for 60 bucks. I waited and found it on ebay for 12 bucks new!

    Seconded big time......I'm a big fan of Spyderco and presently have 10 or so and have had the better part of 25.I have others that cost much much more but from a bang for your buck standpoint Spydies are hard to beat and offer something for everyone.

    I agree with the Spyderco, I have carried the same knife for at least ten years, probably 15 years. I think the pocket clip has kept me from loosing it. I also carry a Surefire flashlight, two of my favorite tools.

    I too agree with the Spyderco frenzy, but you also can't go wrong with a Swiss Army knife, which I might add is a lot cheaper than a Benchmade. I am currently working on a new Benchmade, we'll see if the money is there for the kill. :D

    I carry the Kershaw Scallion. It has spring assist opening which is kind of switchblade like but it isn't technically a switchblade because the blade is pushed open by your finger instead of a button releasing the spring loaded blade. It can be found for ~$36

    You could spend the rest of your life trying to pick out the best knife, there are so many choices out there. Just pick one up that feels right. Chances are you'll find one down the line that you like even better.

    Also go with a straight blade, serrated blades suck, no offense to ones who like em but they suck.
