I like Nutnfancy's reviews and I'm subscribed to his channel, but the guy could do 45 minutes on clipping his toenails...

Gratz OP on finding a knife! I picked up an SOG Flash II at the beginning of the year when I was upgrading my EDC and I'm pretty happy with it.

Followed my own link and picked up this Kershaw Blur. I am usually a Benchmade man but I am impressed with the quality of the Kershaw. Got it for $65 shipped, ordered it Wednesday and had it Thursday.

If you're anywhere in SoCal if I'm not mistaken the largest legal knife you can carry within the City of L.A. is a 2 3/4" blade length.
Seeing as how I live in the City of L.A. I carry one of these buck knifes:

It's 2 3/8" I think so I can stay out of trouble with LAPD just in case we cross paths.

+1 for benchmade

I love, repeat LOVE my Doug Ritter RSK MK1 by Benchmade Everything I want in a folder and nothing I don't.



Uploaded with ImageShack.us

Best folder I've had and I've had quite a few. The only reason I had to buy a second one is I lost my first one.

Fixed blade? http://www.swampratknifeworks.com/

If it is a folder it doesnt matter what size it is, you can carry whatever you want, pretty sure...

I hate these darn threads, all they make me is think I need a new knife too. Well just have to say thanks a lot, ordered up a Spyderco Dragonfly 2 on Sunday with the ZDP 189 steel. Love it. Also like that its an OD green then the traditional black too.

No Kidding, I didn't really "need" the one I just bought.

I love the Ka-Bar Mule. I have two; both mounted on the shoulder straps of my backpacks (Blackhawk 3-Day Assault Pack & Blackhawk Predator Hydration Pack). They are rock solid field knives and I'm very pleased with them.

If you want a good, reliable, and inexpensive every day carry knife, why not check out the Ka-Bar Dozier Folding Hunter? Check this out: http://www.kabar.com/knives/detail/44

I have two and absolutely love them. Cheers! --1911ShooterPhil

Blade length limits in City of LA only applies to fixed blades. But it's a misdemeanor in LA to open carry, while CA State Law it's a felony to conceal carry fixed blades. You're supposed to open carry fixed blades. I have huge 10" knive I carry openly for hiking in the mountains, but I have never been bugged by USFS or any other Rangers ever, although I have yet to see one at 10K+ feet.

Folding knife blade length doesn't matter as long as it is concealed. If asked by police, say it's a work knife, cutting open boxes, etc. Otherwise, don't say anything, and don't whip it out in front of an LEM.

I actually carry 2 knives on me at all times. A larger 3.5" - 4" folding knife clipped in my pocket, and a smaller sheeple friendly knife for simple cutting tasks in public. (I usually carry the smaller knife in my EDC man bag.) My Benchmade REI 530 is my favorite as it weighs next to nothing, actually has a pretty long blade for how small it is. But with it's smurf blue scales, no one ever gives it a second look.

Also, don't flick a knife open around sheeples in public. Just common sense stuff.

Ka-Bar or Kershaw are excellent companies. I personally own a fixed USMC Ka-Bar and a foldable Kershaw.
A foldable blade I would not recommend, a small 4" fixed blade has less moving parts, is usually more reliable and durable.

A knife is not typically used to kill someone,
Prying things, cutting things, scrapping things are what knifes are used for. A fixed blade gives more reliability because they are built better.
