Don't even have it yet, just ordered it from Ebay last night. I knocked my Wester Brother's anchor brand off the bathroom counter yesterday morning and broke the slabs. Figured I'd order replacement slabs, but dropped the blade while taking the broken ones off, and chipped it badly. This new one is a Gold Bug by Droescher. It counts as a knife, right?

My other 2 favorites (not pictured) are my Uncle Henry 3 blade trapper my grandfather gave me about 12 years ago, and my USMC KA-BAR. No sentimental value to the KA-BAR, it's just a damn good knife.

That's what I ended up shaving with in the end, and it took 3 hours for all the little cuts to stop bleeding!!

I had cut my son's hair, and used the razor to straighten his neck line and side burns, and knocked it off the counter with the power cord to my clippers as I was packing them away. I'm not normally such a klutz. Dropping the blade was just all clumsiness though, inexcusable for damaging such a nice razor.

FWIW, I've only ever cut myself once with a straight. That was when the cat snuck in the bathroom after I got out of the shower, and swatted at the hangey down parts that were under my towel...

I buy mine for hunting and they'd work for allot of other things too.

I am really fond of my Kershaw Leek. It has been very useful, though the lil Chive is better for gutting cigars.

I love mine too, but I seem to have an issue with breaking tips off of kershaws. Every one I've ever had has had a broken tip at one time or another. I've even picked them up off the ground where people have thrown them away after breaking the tip. I usually just grind or hone a new tip, depending on how bad the damage is.

Gerber Maximus - Out in May 2012 looks pretty neat. I also like the Benchmade 375 Fixed. Currently just bought a SOG Seal Pup at a gun show. I really like the way it feels in the hand. Nylon sheath is well made also with many options to strap it to anything. The one I bought is not a made in Japan blade, those are about $150 and pretty nice.
