    I keep coming back to these two blades (combo). I have more expensive knives, it's just that these are reliable workhorses...

    The knife is just a Kershaw Cryo ($36 on Amazon), but I thought people here might be interested in the grips. I liked the size and the way the blade's assisted opener protrusion acts as a guard, but with dry winter hands the smooth handle was too slippery for my liking so I wasn't carrying it. Then I remembered I had part of a sheet of Talon Grips stick-on grip material. Now I love how it feels and handles. The rubber grip material isn't so soft that it drags against the fabric in my pocket, but it adds plenty of traction for my hand.

    Those with a sharp eye will also notice I relocated the holes for the clip so it rides lower in my pocket. The handle has a lanyard hole right where I wanted a threaded hole so I had to JB Weld in a steel plug. The handle material apparently is spring steel. For the other hole I wrecked 2 drill bits before giving up and using a carbide bit.

    Sharp eye! My father in-law gave me one years ago and I lost it so I replaced it with a larger version. I'm still not handy with it but he can open a can faster with one than I can with the one in my kitchen.

    I picked up a Kershaw Leek, with the composite blade and Blackwashed finish. Nice blade in a slim profile.

    My Kershaw EDC (Blackout or Whirlwind) are now discontinued and prices are going through the roof. What used to be $39 bucks; are now on Ebay and Amazon for $179-$199. Gross.
    Luckily I bought a spare for both back when they were cheap, and available.

    If you like something, buy a spare...or two. It will pay off.

    This is what I would bring to a knife fight. (I'd rather avoid a knife fight)

    One or both of these. The TL-29 is my favorite. I removed the screwdriver blade and did some file work. Camillus made a great knife in 1095. The Queen teardrop is D2 and is very durable but won't take as fine an edge as the grain kinda flakes as at a certain point of sharpness. 2D824CCD-C9C7-40A0-A713-16A5E0690F97.jpeg B9A8318A-05B9-4A98-9661-C624F01CD359.jpeg 1D899155-469F-49F8-9515-BEB7E3238640.jpeg

    Amen to this.
    I lost what I've decided is my fav edc knife (spyderco lil matriarch) for a few weeks last summer. Tried to replace it and found out it was discontinued in 2015. $70 knife. Found ONE on eBay for $199. Ughh. Fortunately I eventually found mine under the seat of the work truck.

    Lol. Trucks eat knives...
    Especially bench-seat trucks, which are no different than couches...

    If you are left handed, it falls between the seat and the door so that when you get out at the jobsite it disappears into the mud. :mad:

    You're lucky you're lefty. When it's clipped to your front right it can catch on the steering wheel and put a nice dig in it!

    So my CRKT CEO finally showed up today! All the reviews about it being tough to open and needing two hands really had me worried. It also shipped in the most bizarre way ever. Open with a tiny plastic sheath over the tip, in a toothbrush type package. But it was near impossible to open! You're sitting here tearing at this package with an open knife inside! 20190409_185752.jpg 20190409_185743.jpg All that aside the knife opens like a damn assisted switch blade one handed. Could be a bit sharper though.

    One look at that knife, and I want to yell "BONZAI!"
    I like it!

    My EDC. S&W Extreme Ops. Gets the job done and has for the past year since I got it! It's basically my baling twine cutter and box/ziptie cutter. Has a pretty easy life.
