What kind of knife do you carry? - October 29, 2012, 12:47 PM

For those of you who normally carry a pocket knife, what do you carry? Post a pic if possible.

I carry a ZT350 (Zero Tolerance 350) it is assisted, 3.2 inch blade which is S30V and the knife pretty much can be described as a tank...very tough yet easy to carry.

Benchmade is definitely nicer than my Kershaw but comes at a premium. I don't carry that one because it is too nice.

I will always purchase Kershaw from now on too because of how good a company they are.

Sent them a knife that I snapped the blade on from misuse and they fixed it free of charge. It was going in for a warranty repair on the spring and I was going to pay the extra $10 for the new blade and they just did it.

Awesome company.

Kershaw 1660 Leek, which is small enough to carry into the fed gov building where I work (brought it once accidentally) but big enough to be practical. Legal in frederick county.

Kershaw Blur Tanto Serrated / Sandvik 14C28N Steel.


Why? I drooled over the Microtech Halo 2, but didn't want to break the bank on a EDC knife and since I'm not 'in the shit' life of death situation on a daily basis, I did not need a $100+ brass washer and pinned, Scandium Unobtanium Plutonium alloy bladed knife.

But I did want good value for money and assisted opening.

I know some feel tanto shaped blades are not ideal for EDC because of the lack of belly and the resulting need to sharpen three zones, but I find it advantageous. Piercing is never an issue with a tanto and the blade tip tends be constructed thicker and more robust than clip, drop, or spear points specifically with that purpose in mind. This generally means you are also able to get away with a bit more prying. Second, is that I have two individual cutting surfaces. When one goes a bit dull, I can favor the other. Serrations always are one of those features you wish you had when slicing will not do the job and you need sawing or ripping action to get through a material. It just takes a bit more time and patience to sharpen. Not a deal breaker in my opinion.

Also it makes for a good nubber in a pinch.



“Any man who tries to be good all the time is bound to come to ruin among the great number who are not good. Hence a Prince who wants to keep his authority must learn how not to be good, and use that knowledge, or refrain from using it, as necessity requires”.

- Nicolo Machiavelli 1469-1527
