Default Got my utilitac 2

Wow this knife is an incredible value!! It's a solid knife and exactly feels the way I like a knife to feel. I can say enough good things about it.

Default New purchase

Sweet JMA!!

Yesterday was my 53rd B-Day,..so since I can't spend 2k right now on Guns,..I'll be buying a new Knife or two tomorrow @ big 5. sadly 90% of the blades there are 440 stainless, which is my absolute last choice for a blade.
I'm thinking Kershaw, buck, or case....your thoughts

Which 440 stainless? 440A pretty much sucks as a knife steel. 440B is acceptable -- Randall used to use it in their stainless blades, but not that great. 440C was the "wonder steel" of the early 70's, and still one of my favorites.

If a knife simply says "440 stainless" it's probably 440A, and not that high of quality.

The Utiltac is made from AUS 8, which, while not a super steel, has pretty good performance for a blade steel.

I bought the Kershaw Burst(on Sale-reg. $44.95, sale price $21.99!) it says the Steel is 8CR1.....It does have an assist open, and you can reverse the beltclip....

I've had the same Old Timer for 20 plus years it still keeps a sharp blade and always works in a pinch. Not as fancy as you all are talking about but a damn good pocket knife.

Honestly you can pick one of the awesome folders up on eBay for 30$. I have never in my life had a 30$ knife that was this high quality. If this was a spyderco the price tag would have been at Least 100$

I personally am not a fan of buck. However try do make some nice blades. I would go after kershaw. Before buck and I don't even like kershaw that much lol. Usually the lowest quality steel I will buy is 8cr13mov
