    I have to second this post.

    I have a leatherman- (e305x for those who care) I dont know the grade, I'll check the site later. It wasn't too pricey and it works well. I wish i could use it more, but in melb i cant carry it. I always used to have it with me, as i used in on the block (dried fruit).
    I probly need a new one, but dont really have the money atm.

    edit* 154CM stainless steel

    If your looking for a knife that holds an edge and is easy to sharpen then stay away from 440

    I've actually had good expirence with 440A, it might not have the edge of an Aus 6a but its more durable in more extreme enivorments.

    **** leatherman, I'm about to hit up MCCS and pick up a Gerber. A good knife just became imperative. It's put up or shut up time for me boys. The orders are coming down, I'm going to Iraq.

    The Gerbers at C&S are ****, at least the cheap ones. Make sure you get something worth stealing.

    SFGOON, Spend $70 instead of $50, got it. The leathermans at C&S just looked shitty, though. I might just get a KBar.

    Well, I ended up going with Cold Steel for my straight blade, and Smith and Wesson for my folder. All in all, including 550 cord to attach it to my IBAS, I spent less than $80.

    Seriously though, the extra weight on the other side of my gun belt keeps things balanced. An unbalance gun belt can really jack up your lower back.

    Ahh, well that makes sense then.
