    I currently carry a CRKT Longs Peak. It's a nice little tac folder without a serrated edge (I'm not a fan of them because, although they cut better, they're hard to sharpen). It's also got a dual lock feature so that there is no possibility of the blade closing in on your fingers.

    Of course, if we're talking about favorite knives, I'll always swear by my Ka-Bar. Those leathernecks really know how to design a knife.

    I carry a CRKT bear claw, only I've been tampering with the sheath. I still need to fix a few things before I'm done but I like it better now, it's safer and cuicker to draw.

    I have a few. Carry a Buck folder with me most places, handy little sucker and you never know when you're gonna need one. Keep a Gerber multitool in the car and one in the bedroom, useful little suckers. The rest are big boys, can't carry em around in public: SOG SEAL 2000, "Big Buck" (as I call him, basically a big sheath Buck), Arkansas Toothpick (mostly for fun), a Spyderco folder or two, Buck Strider folding tanto, and an Iraqi bayonet.

    What I really want is one of these.

    Wow, that's nice. Makes the Cold steel Tanto I want look kinda lame in comparison.

    I used to carry the vaquero grande, but I guess I live in one of those "non permissive envionments" or whatever you want to call it, so I've been looking into smaller blades. The bear claw is just fine, but the most concealable blade I've seen (that still seems to be enough blade for the task) is This one. Anyone tried them?

    Now if I thought I'd be using the blade mostly for dispatching onrushing marauders I'd carry a punch dagger or something, but the biggest threat I usually face on a day to day basis tends to be something along the lines of EVIL wrapping and packanging, and EVIL tape and EVIL stuff that needs cutting (or will result in endless frustration :mumum: )

    He handmakes them and is always back-ordered, let's just say don't start putting it down on the shopping list just yet unless you've got some nice stock options piled up and not a lot of bills with a big paycheck.

    In actuality, I can't recall offhand, but it is enough to make you wince.
