    You want to go self defense take a fixed blade or buy a gun.
    you fail at the reference to crocodile dundee. therefore you don't get the joke. i was making a joke but of course you germans don't really "get" humor, now, do you?

    i use my knife for household/work tasks 99% of the time but also think that it would be pretty useful and quick to open in a self defense scenario.

    i keep a multi-tool in my bag for other stuff, but when i want to cut something (open a box, cut some tape, clean a fish, or gut a loudmouth teenager on the subway) i want the knife to be easy to reach, easy to open with one hand, and very sharp, with ability to hold a decent edge, and to stand up to some rough usage without being ruined.

    that's why i carry an emerson with the wave feature.

    why all the tanto tip hate, guys? i got one after i chipped the tip off of my kershaw, and wanted something that could stand up to abuse a bit better (and maybe punch through a car roof if need be.)

    I like Tanto points okay, but I find myself needing to do more slicing and cutting with my pocket knife than stabbing. The Ken Onion Blur I just trash talked was a tanto point. I'd just rather have a nice belly on the blade than the tanto point. If I need to stab through the roof of a car or something else silly, chances are I'll also have my Gerber LMF fixed blade on me. That knife actually gets off from being abused.

    I don't carry a knife everyday, although they do come in handy (not for l33t ninja stuff though, sadly :phil2: ). When I do it's this sucker that was dirt cheap at Bass Pro:

    I know it's one of the cheapest knives that Benchmade makes and I've been looking to upgrade to something a little better.

    Mine is a Kershaw Storm 1470. I originally got one as a birthday gift and didn't have any of the problems that other people have apparently had with kershaws. I liked it enough that when I lost my first one on an exercise a couple months ago I went out and bought the same model.

    SOG Trident. Love this thing. Spring assisted, a fishing line/small cable cutter so you don't even have to open it, plus it's extremely comfortable to hold. Really great for big and small jobs. Also, gotta love the belt clip, really high quality all around. Best knife I've ever had.

    Sheffield serrated, it has a clip but i just throw it in the bag/pocket, not spring loaded (Illegal in Canada, lol), half metal and half rubber, so its cold to the touch and comfortable / non-slip. I like that its blade is matte black, doesnt shine at all so i dont attract too much attention when i pull it out to cut something.

    had it for over 2 years, never disappointed me

    I used to have one exactly like it. It got lost on a camping trip (This is why I won't spend much money on a pocket folder). I wouldn't buy another because the rubber bits started coming off on mine after just a few weeks.
