Thread: EDC knife thread

I came to the conclusion a couple of years ago that serrations are actually inferior to a WELL sharpened plain edge for things like seat belts and rope anyway. They're hard to sharpen, even harder to polish, and they require too much sawing when I can make one of my better edges glide right through a seat belt or rope anyway. I definitely recommend learning to sharpen and strop to anyone."Intelligence is nothing more than discussing things with others. Limitless wisdom comes of this." - 山本 常朝

That's a sweet little knife. I have one of his CRKT Minimalists with a tanto point, and it was one of the most comfortable EDCs I've used.
I ended up switching my EDC philosophy a little bit. I still carry my Griptilian from time to time, but have been carrying one of these two bad boys just about every day. Getting into Pekiti Tirsia, I learned the value of having a fixed blade on me for EDC rather than a folder.
For those who are not knife fan(atics) like me, the one on the right is the Becker Necker (BK11) and the one on the left is the Becker EsKabar. The blades are a touch over 3" long, making them legal in all the places I go. The best part, they were under $40 a piece shipped from either amazon or LAPG. Nothing like a sharpened piece of American made 1095 Steel.I feel like you eye-bawlin' me, dawg!

I've been wanting one of those Eskabars for a while now. I just can't justify another neck knife that I will likely not carry. Although it would be nice to put it in my car. I keep a Bark River 3V Bravo Necker 2 there and if it got stolen I'd be heartbroken."Intelligence is nothing more than discussing things with others. Limitless wisdom comes of this." - 山本 常朝

I've been carrying a Kershaw Half Ton most of the time these days.
It's petite, utilitarian, sharpens easily, built like a tank and holds a shaving edge very well. For @ $12 it's a heck of a deal! IMHO.

Found this at Home Depot a while ago:
and its become my new outdoors knife. Its a cheap $12 knife, but the best I've seen for the price. One edge is serrated and one is plain like the SOG pentagon, which is an alignment I like more than the half and half since I like having a plain edge close to the handle for scraping and stripping.
