That is a good knife though! I have a few Kershaw's both list right at the $50 mark but I buy them on sale....

Hey! Nothing wrong with the Leek. I've got a couple of them myself (standard blade and composite blade). They're great little knives for most EDC tasks. The only problem I've ever heard of is some people complain the blade tips break too easily (although I've never had that problem).

Yes!

Cheap knives do just fine for me and if lost then nothing is lost.

For deer hunting a folder with a partial serrated blade is perfect.

For my pocket a small Swiss type SS import is ideal.

I carry a cheap lil crkt just as a utility knife. When i was I'm the army one of my buddies carried a grayman knife that was just wicked I would love to have one but they are way too expensive right now for me to get one. One day though it will be mine.

I've got a Columbia River. It's a happy medium to me. Not to pricey, but good quality. Pretty much retired my Emerson. Also, still often carry an old schoool Victoria Knox, Swiss Army knife, for the handiness.

Here is the folder that I like and use. It's a SS folder with a partial serrated blade that will saw through a deer's brisket.



They were $10 when Walmart had them and still can be found on line for $15 or so.

my newest knife is a Robert Klaas knife made by Kissing Crane Knives. it is a sod buster style knife, which is a design that i have liked for many years now.

Latest knife is a benchmade 530 pardue.


Not sure how I feel about the spear point being that I'm not sure ANY 1.7 ounce pocket knife would stand up to being used in self defense,first touch screamed cheap bc of the seemingly all polymer grip/handle but remembering that its a benchmade I further investigated to find some metal liners on the inside for strength and noticed how the blade was perfectly centered and locked up with no lateral or vertical movement at all, I tried bending the knife while it was open from blade tip to grip hilt and it flexed plenty,convincing me of its strength.

I'm happy with it,light as a feather,so slim I forget its there. Great EDC.

Thinner blade stock makes slicing a piece of cake,and Very sharp point.

Cost me right at 100$.

Oh and I also love how with a little practice the Axis lock enables one handed opening AND closing not only possible but very quick.
