Interesting, we jumped with the Germans just outside Hohenfels and I became friends with one of their troopers and we traded knives.
This was in 1979.
It is a well constructed knife.

I just picked up a benchmade 9100 auto for 60 dollars. When bought brand new its 245. It's a little worn but it still works .

I'm thinking about picking this blade up from cold steel. It's priced at 130 never paid over 65 for a knife but I really like the design. Do y'all like cold steel blades??
They're good blades, my Spartan has handled everything i throw at it but is it worth 130? I think no, for that price i would pick up a benchmade or zero tolerance

Condor Tool and Knife, Kershaw.

I also sometimes buy really cheap knives and replace the blade with one of my own design. The sharpest knife I own started as a $1 potmetal knife from Walmart. I replaced it with some cheap high carbon steel that I etched in acid. I target lock backs because of their simplicity and superior lockup.

Love my ZT 0200 folder,built like a tank and balanced perfect! and whatever they coat their blades with Is some kind of magic. I could cut a dozen coke cans in half with it,give the blade a little oil and run out all the scratches. Everytime I clean it up looks just like the day I got it.

Just a tad big though,but I'm of thought thAt if your going to carry something,you should carry a big something.

Keeping a sharp knife sharp in this house has been a chore from the get go, the wife insist on dragging my very nice chef's knife across (sideways) a wooden cutting board!!
I like a knife to be shaving sharp so I'm sure you can see this certainly kills that option.
She watches the cooking channel and insist they all do it to which I reply they do not sharpen their own knifes!
So long story short I discovered Rada knifes, they are inexpensive incredibly tough for the price and hold an edge way better than most!
If some of you have a similar situation check this out they really do stand up to someone that has no clue to what a sharp knife really is http://www.radacutlery.com/?gclid=CJC-la2H0rsCFel9OgodkWUAqQ

i really don't have a favorite brand persay, but am partial to a few that i have had over the years.

Gerber. i have had many of them ranging in price and find them to be quite durable for most of my needs.

CRKT. very well made knives an one i started using a few years ago.

Frost Cutlery. very good knives with blades made from surgical steel. hard to sharpen, but are a tough blade.

Shrade/Uncle Henry/Old Timer. have had many of these in many different versions and probably more of these than any other brand of knife.

Case. enough said. truly a great knife IMO.

Just got back from a vacation to Oregon. Stopped by the benchmade factory,real friendly folk. The factory store was pretty wiped out bc of Christmas gifts,and usually everything is MSRP but they had a sale on clothing and %30 of all custom griptillians. Almost picked one up until I saw a box of serrated sheepsfoot black nitride griptillians in the corner,they were a discontinued model on sale for 60 bucks!

Got out of there with a hat,shirt and griptillian for $80 bucks!
