Stick around, and enbloc will have you doing the same thing!
Well, at least you've now got something to "cut up" the credit cards with...
That's a great knife you got there Nasty!
Thanks to YOU!
Not necessarily EDC, but new work EDC. Great quality in my opinion for price. Has window punch and seatbelt cutter. Feels great. Probably a little to long for true EDC.
Benchmade Infidel OTF. This is my “I’m not going to work, or Massachusetts” carry.
This Bark River Essos also finds itself on my belt most days that I’m not at work.
Picked this up today, a sweet CRKT. I don’t normally buy serrated blades like this but this really appealed to me. It will be in the rotation
I like Crickets. I always use a little 242 Loctite (Blue) on the screws, especially the clip screws. I've found they have a tendency to loosen and drop out after a while.
Good to know Matt, Thank You for the heads up. For some reason this knife really appeals to me, I know it’s a cheap piece but the color combo and the different serrations make me like it a lot, it will be carried and used excessively.
A price tag does not a knife make.
I am also not one for serrations normally, but have to admit the way those are ground with a bit of angle to them seems to just fit. Kind of ties the room together.
Some guys have a strict brand loyalty. Me, I'm a philanderous knife whore...
Strider SnG making an appearance, since I’m in Massachusetts for the week.
Here is another great knife, Enlan EL-06. Under $25, feels great in hand and again another folder to rotate in and not worry about abusing
I'm gonna give you a little somethin' you can't take off..
SOG Zoom (ZM1016-BX) arrived today.
The contoured black anodized aluminium grips over stainless inserts fit big hands very comfortable.
For scale that is a 5" barreled 1911, so yeah it is a pretty big folder (8.3").
I never used the lockout feature on my old SOG Twitch XL and probably will not on this knife, but some folks might be inclined to as the assist takes very little effort to trigger before the spring opens it lightening fast. The lockout is a small mechanical toggle switch behind the grip above where you see the little padlock pictographs that reference it.
Button release for closure is easy to use and works well.
Good photos community! I really like greencobras' collection
Picked up this beaut last week.
I prefer the rigidity of a fixed blade. This knife sees daily use and is always on my side. It was handcrafted from a bastard file by my father with the wood applied by me.
I call that...priceless.
It is. We made 3 that day. My son has 1.
Now, that's America!
Spyderco Para 3 with Wise Men Company signet ring and fang
I have been carrying one of these for a while now. They are great quality for the price and hold a nice edge.
Not an edc but an unusual item. Made of metal but looks like a pen. You push the clip and the pointed blade springs out. I've had it so long I forget where I picked it up. I'm not sure if it's legal in MA.
My guess is it would fall under the category of legal to own but not to carry.
Not quite an EDC but a more than part time carry and it’s more useful for small tasks than I can even explain. The Swiss Army Huntsman. I’ve had the black model for a while and after using the other night opening up some beer bottles I got to thinking how much I use the knife and me being a 1 is none type of addict with guns and knives I snagged the same knife but in Red. Love love this little tool, I highly recommend it. It’s not good for hard use like my multi tools but damn it’s handy for so many small tasks. Get one or two you won’t regret it, easily the best $35 I’ve spent in awhile.
Love the drifter. Hard to beat at ~$22 shipped to your door.
I have had my eye on benchmade mini grip and the bug out but have seen enough people with omega spring issues that I am starting to sour on the brand.
Also, a polite request to name the gear you are posting.
Yup. Ive had a huntsman for prob 30 years. Haven't touched it in a while, but I always thought it was the perfect size/just right amount of tools.
