    Good to know. I need to get a new knife for work and it would be handy to know what I can get away with.

    I carry a Kershaw assisted opening blade that I have had for 5 years now. I carried it on patrol as well. It cost me $49.00 at Wal-Mart and it still keeps an nice edge after few minutes of sharpening it.....cut myself the other day with it.

    I think you're right about the grey area, a lot depends on context of where you are, what you're doing etc.
    They were cheap $24 including postage so I lashed out and bought one with the wooden handle. Playing with it at the moment. It is a lot lighter than I expected it to be.

    I dont notice the non locking feature when it is open.(It is held by my hand and there does not seem to be a position where either my hand is not supporting it or it is pushing back into the handle). Just opening and closing it is a bit different.(Like a straight razor I imagine)

    The steel is good. And I am not used to that. It doesent come shaving sharp but it does have that sort of bite that a good knife has.

    three inches is about seven something centimeters? This one is about six centimeters. But I have read that there were some over the three inch mark on the net so maby they are different sizes.

    I just ordered a Spyderco Tasman Salt from Amazon, using an old link that should give Bullshido a cut of what I spent. A review will be posted in this thread after I've had the knife for a few weeks.

    I finally switched to a CRKT M21-14DSFG: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001A2GO6Q

    Few issues with it:
    - The extra lock (Auto Lawks) takes some getting used to; especially for opening/closing one-handed.
    - The serrations chip easily (but still function).

    How do you chip a serration?

    Same way you chip any other part of the bladee: Using it for a task it isn't meant to handle. I had an m21 in the past as well I believe and the handguard built into the blade made getting things from my pocket a chore.

    Let CKRT know. Your serrations shouldn't chip from normal use like that. What were you cutting?

    I was cutting cardboard boxes.

    Its a small chip on the very edge of the serration. Doesn't seem to affect the functionality so far. Some reviews on Amazon mention the same problem.
