Title: What is your favorite production Knife?
Post by: MATT CHAOS on February 09, 2012, 10:15:26 AM
So what is your favorite Production Knife? 
I have Beckers, Bucks, Kershaws, SAKs, CRKTs, and the list goes on................. ......
BUT
My favorite full sized Production Knife is my Doug Ritter/Becker Perserverance (MK2)
and
for a Production necker knife is my Becker Eskabar (BK)
and
for a Production EDC folder my SAK (I think it is a tinker but I am not sure)

Wow, that's a tough question. There are so many to choose from!

If I had to pick just one it would be the ESEE4. I think it's a good all-around size with a comfortable handle.

Mine would be the esee 4 also.

I don't have any ESEEs.  A buddy of mine, Sidecarr, (who should be joining this site soon), has more than a few.  I like the ESEE 5 although a little big and I like the "mini 5" = the ESEE 3 MIL although I have never seen one in real life.
Title: Re: What is your favorite production Knife??????
Post by: PetrifiedWood on February 09, 2012, 05:02:49 PM
I have a few of the ESEE3s too, and a few Izulas. They are nice knives. I've also got a few Beckers and hearing that they might be making glass-free sheaths now I might have to revisit them.

Other production knife companies I like are Kershaw and Buck. I like Gerber for their pliers, and for some reason the Gerber "steadfast" knife appeals to me. (More as something to look at than use.)

Oh, and I forgot, the SAKs of course! I like both Vix and Wenger, but I prefer the Wenger can opener.
Title: Re: What is your favorite production Knife??????
Post by: rogumpogum on February 09, 2012, 05:04:50 PM
Tough, tough question. When I had one, I really, really liked the Izula, but the "survival" and "tactical" knives have fallen out of favor with me, just as anything with plastic/rubber handles - which is why I got rid of all my once beloved Moras. I've even gotten rid of my SAKs. I currently just have my GRK Sheath knife, and I plan on putting my own handle on a blank. I don't know if this is "production" as you think of it, but, yeah. Never had a knife feels so right in my hand. Looking forward to the project.

I also want to find a very small scandi blade (I have a Roselli one, but it's actually too small) for putting a stacked handle on... As a carving necker knife. Very short, very sharp, detail work oriented. But, that's another topic...

So, if I had to choose, yeah.. GRK, and really just about any of those as they all seem "right" for me and my needs.

Edit: I also got to toy with a Queen folder the other day, I believe it was a whittler. I was really impressed with the quality, and I might buy a canoe, mini trapper, or liner lock to become my EDC. I also have my eye on the new Leatherman Rebar with the awl, that will be released sometime this year.

Post by: Red on February 09, 2012, 07:12:55 PM
you know.... ive been thinking about his question all day now. for the longest time i carried a schrade PH1. it was a fantastic blade, and thick too. stood up to anything i put in front of it.  then i found my ole beater that i just recently sold, and that was an awesome knife from a less than awesome company.

and as of right now, my EDC is a gerber gator 2 Folder.  tough call.... very tough...

i agree 100% there man, and i think the biggest problem i am having is that its been so long since i bought a production knife (or any knife really) that ive just gotten by with what i had.

Well I can't say the same. I have had to stop myself recently from buying production knives. I honestly think I am done with them for quite some time.

Yeah for a smaller sized production company those BHKs are really nice. Real loveless bolts are a nice touch.

I'm satisfied with my BHKs as well.  I have a Bark River that is pretty nice as well.

That's a hard one to nail down.  Right now I'd probably have to say my CRKT Crawford Falcon.  It has a chisel grind and suits me well for being a lefty.  My EDC is the CRKT, a Vic One Hand Trekker and a Schrade Walden that I've probably had for close to 30 years.

Wow that is a long delay since Sept.  I think they got hit pretty hard with orders because it was/is such a good deal.  Which handle did you choose? 

I don't know if you know but this month's special is a Woodsman.  Another, nice lookling knife but I have to take a pass.  My next one is a REDNECK!

Yeah, it took a while.  I ordered the green and black handle (most comfortable handle i have ever held).  It took this long cause they had an issue with getting the green & black micarta from their supplier... which happens. 

The fit and finish on it is pretty good but i thought it would be sharper out of the box.  it sure doesn't shave hair and cuts paper a little raggedly.

I did see the Feb special. Its nice too but thank god they sold out before i could order one.... Lol.
Title: Re: What is your favorite production Knife??????
Post by: MATT CHAOS on February 10, 2012, 02:10:56 PM
I was contacted by BHK and was given the offer to buy a black handle one last month or so.  I guess they had a bunch of this one left over.  I would have liked to have gotten my son one of them but I had just spent too much on the holidays. 

Mine was and still is really sharp.  It shaves the hair off my arms.

Send that blade to Red and you will get an unbelievable sharp edge. You won't be disappointed and Red has fast turn around.

                                               For the Woods & a Production Blade, I'd Have to go with an SK5 Blackbird, 154cm 5" Blade, Flat Ground, Designed by Paul Scheiter of Hedgehog Leatherworks, and produced by Ontario Knife Co. . I have a First Production Run Model, 1 of 100, and she is a nice blade! :D Even built my own Sheath for her and engraved the Blackbird Logo onto the Sheath!  8)

Well, I do have two favorite production blades.
(http://i906.photobucket.com/albums/ac262/sfc1620/Knivar/S1/IMAG0568.jpg)
The S1 because I bought one to use as an issue knife, never needed anything else so over the years it became a favorite for other stuff as well.

(http://i906.photobucket.com/albums/ac262/sfc1620/Hemgjort/SDC10374.jpg)
The #1 because it's what I learned on and what I've used my entire life. For a good long time I thought knives with relief edge (proper English term?) and saber ground blades looked exotic and odd.

So for tried and true comfort I go with these two.

(http://i906.photobucket.com/albums/ac262/sfc1620/Hemgjort/IMAG0124.jpg)

Also, proud that my oldest is going the same route. He made the sheath himself! (with some instruction and minor aid in the awl use.)

(http://i906.photobucket.com/albums/ac262/sfc1620/Hemgjort/SDC10374.jpg)
The #1 because it's what I learned on and what I've used my entire life. For a good long time I thought knives with relief edge (proper English term?) and saber ground blades looked exotic and odd.

So for tried and true comfort I go with these two.

Also, proud that my oldest is going the same route. He made the sheath himself! (with some instruction and minor aid in the awl use.)

I think we are on the same page as far as choice of knife. It's great to see you here.

How do you like that Helle Temagami Bradley? I just ordered one today. Looking forward to its arrival.

I've never actually used the Temagami, although it came really sharp, is comfortable in the hand and seems like a really solid knife. I have used the other 2 Helle's a lot that are pictured and they are great knives, so I'm sure the Temagami will be also. I think you'll like it.

For me the best production knife for bushcraft is the Mora no.1, this one has served me well for many years in the Alaska bush, I have used it to skin and butcher deer, skin martin, cut my food, and every type of cutting task you could think of, never let me down, very easy to sharpen, just the bevel flat on the stone, a smooth rock works in a pinch. The Victorinox pocket knife (or something similar) belongs in everyones pocket at all times.(http://[IMG]http://i1077.photobucket.com/albums/w463/taiga151/mora%201/moraknife006.jpg)[/img]

Thanks Brad. I have to say it was the looks of that particular knife that sucked me in. I knew the F1 was a good blade and I could have gotten the base model but I really loved the look of this one.

I'll add the DH Russell Belt Knife #1 as a favourite too (sabre or flat, stainless or carbon). Hmmm, I find myself without one right now. Must remedy that. Road trip!!!!

Title: Re: What is your favorite production Knife??????
Post by: Half Axe on March 04, 2012, 09:10:52 PM
I'm not sure of a model number.  It was the only one of it's type that I found at Lee's Cutlery, and I haven't seen him list any more like it.  The only thing that seems to come close is the Boddington.  It holds an edge really well - I've used it for everything from making fuzz sticks to improvised hiking sticks to field dressing large herbivores, and a few strokes on a steel is all that is needed to bring the edge back to scary sharpness.
Title: Re: What is your favorite production Knife??????
Post by: rogumpogum on March 05, 2012, 12:24:28 AM
Yeah, it's a lovely blade. It's interesting you don't see more Anza users in our circles. I might just up and decide that's the way I'll go! I don't think I've seen a design of theirs I haven't liked.

Ahhh, yes, I am familiar with the Anza website.  Unfortunately for me, either the handle configuration isn't right or the blade is not the right length.  Also, the costs are about 30% higher on Anza's site vs. Lee's Cutlery.  So, now we've established that I am cheap as well as picky  :) .  Maybe I should have said exactly like it - the handle fits my hand really well.

Yeah, I've thought about emailing him to see if I could get something similar to that Ranger, only without the lanyard thinger on the back. Makes a beauty look less than, in my opinion. That said, I reaaaaaally like that 721, especially in elk.
Title: Re: What is your favorite production Knife??????
Post by: Half Axe on March 07, 2012, 02:42:03 PM
The C 002 model in the Customs section is nice, too.  That said, I like handles with a finger notch (choil ?) right behind the blade, but nowhere else - too restricting as far as using a variety of different grips on the handle.  That's just my personal preference, YMMV.
Title: Re: What is your favorite production Knife??????
Post by: SouthernCross on March 08, 2012, 12:30:50 AM
Probably Bark River Knives, although, I'm not the biggest fan of their sheaths.

Since they have consistently described themselves as semi-custom,  I don't know if they qualify as either a production knife or a custom knife?

Now before you assume that this is a BRK bash, can I remind you that this is something MikeS himself has noted on numerous occassions.  :)



Kind regards

for all around edc, public life, hands down Izula, I loved that thing, maybe I have small hands I dont know but that thing is perfect, but I gave it to my girlfriend she uses it everyday. and everyday I look at izulas on ebay....actually if anyones got a bashed up one they want to let go for cheap...

(http://i1141.photobucket.com/albums/n581/obee508/IMAG0019.jpg)
I also really liked this 18 dollar buck, carried it for a few months, made a sheath that included the plastic liner from the original with some thin leather I thought would be useless, worked great. I used this knife for woodworking a lot actually, I had a job working some ancient cast iron and wooden machinery  that needed alot of minor repairs done. It scraped, shaved, chiseled, shaped and split really well...gave it to my dad.
(http://i1141.photobucket.com/albums/n581/obee508/IMG_20111201_111930.jpg)

and I love my woodsman pro. It's awesome, but I miss the Izula for edc for sure

actually I forgot about this guy, think I pushed into the recesses of my brain with other things that make me want to walk really far just to beat the hell out of somebody....
my beloved ESEE 3 that is most likely rotting on DWAT's shelf. someday I will get another and do the exact same thing I did here, worked great, and without the crkt piggybacking it was really unobtrusive and easy to wear in public....grrr. one day I'll learn to keep hold of a good thing.

I carry a SAK(this was serrated blase when I brought it ,has seen much use)  and a Izula 2 as my edc , Esse 5 for chopping ,ESEE 4 for everyday camp stuff, But recently brought some land in Michigan and although I still have the Izula 2 as a kneck knife and the SAK in the pocket ,have been getting a little more traditional , made a strap from leather so I can secure my tomahawk and this knife I got from Track of the Wolf to my possibles bag , the blade is thin but it stays sharp and has done everything Ive asked it to do, may end up buying a kneck knife from there in the future, I also have several knives I forged from a truck spring that I keep in the pouch as patch knives . Back in the late 80's I was into buckskining so going back to a more traditional setup is like going home for me.

Off of fleabay. They fetch a considerably higher price at home than they do over in the states. This was the export version and is far more common than the original (featured on the box, had three rivets and a full tang like the kephart design but with some swedishness to it.)

It seems some sellers don't really know what it is because some of the names are hilarious. You can PM if you want the seller I got mine from, he seems to have a bunch, they really are in "new in box condition". Been looking for ages too, about time I got it. :D

Hard to name just one, as I've got lots of SAKs, Cold Steels, and Spydercos,  more than a couple Opinels, Moras, and one Fallkniven S1.  Guess if I had to narrow it down, I prefer my OH Soldier and Farmer for playing in the woods, SwissBianco Yeoman3 for in the city, and it tends to be a tie between a Spydie Delica4 and an Opi #8 for a single blade utility cutter, for all the mundane tasks.

Falkniven S1.  At 5 or so inches on the blade, this could definitely qualify as a one knife solution to all your wilderness needs:

My favourite production knife....

Two candidates:
This Hultafors

(http://i1070.photobucket.com/albums/u496/kanukkarhu/IMG_6710.jpg)

Or a Grohmann #4

(http://i1070.photobucket.com/albums/u496/kanukkarhu/the4brothers.jpg)


Likely the Hulti would win today...

Favorite production knife.

What knife do I always make sure I have with me?
what knife would I turn around and go back home if I realized I had somehow left it at home?
What knife would I immediately or as soon as possible replace should I loose it?

Of production knives, the answer is:

a Swiss Army Knife of some flavor.

The one in my pocket I have had since sometime back in the 70's.  Like my handgun, I never leave home without it.

Of course I usually carry 2 - 4 knives with me.  One being a fixed blade , the SAK, some folder I am working on / testing out.  Perhaps another one that one of the kids has handed to me and asked me to keep up with because they are swimming or something that they need to get it out of their pocket for a moment.

But always a SAK in the production knife types.  It is probably the most used around the house of all of them. 

The fixed blade more out and about gets the nod for pure cutting, and changes according to the mood.

I definately have to show this to SWMBO ...

I got the combo "head-tilt-eye-roll" yesterday about my "knife collection" (7 total ...3 in a put-away-box, 3 that I use and a filet knife for fishing).

Can we start a "Your significant other is not crazy" thread and sticky it?

It would only be bad for the guy with the most blades .... and it might get the rest of us some "discretionary spend" >>LOL  O:-)

I have my fixed blades, and I love them. However, I'm usually hesitant to bring them on outdoor trips or into the field when doing research work, especially with friends who aren't used to seeing a sheath knife.

Result: I've had way too many adventures with my Griptillian to count. Quality steel, quality construction, simple.

Here it is serving as a scale bar for behemoth banana slug I found on Orcas Island, WA

That banana slug is huge and gross.  I don't really like slugs since I have woken up with them crawling on my head while I have slept out in Michigan in my not too distance past.  These slugs were an orangish color.

My favorite fixed blade knife is a Bark River Fox River.  Great knife with a so-so sheath. 

My favorite folding knife, because its what I use around the farm most of the time, is a Case two blade trapper folding knife.  I just replaced my old one with a new one.

It's Benchmades first "bushcraft" knife. Blade seems great so far, but the sheath designer isn't quiet ready for prime time yet (IMHO).

Nothing new for Benchmade though ... the knifes rock, sheaths leave something to be desired.

Same old Benchmade ... blade came wicked sharp & I'm pretty sure I could carve my name in a grain of rice with it ...in script  O:-)

These were priced very attractively ... $120.00-ish on pre-order.

X2 on bench made   Use to be a spyderco guy until I got my hands on a bench made  now I don't buy any other type of edc folder. Not to mention top notch customer service. One time bento belt clip real bad long story called bench made and then overnighted me a belt clip and screws after I explained to them that it was my knife I used on shift as a firefighter

I carry the BK14 Eskabar in my pocket everyday.  I modded it and made a kydex pocket sheath for it.  If I don't carry that one, I carry the one that I got from you.

I am in the process of modding another one with my oldest son.  We stripped it and we are going to put some custom handle on it.

When it comes to  production knives, I'll have to go with Randall Made as my favorites.  Once past number One, I'll toss in ESEE, Bark River, and Busse Combat.  Not necessarily in that order either, as each of those makes some stunning knives.
As examples, a Randall #11, Bark River Aurora, ESEE 4 clip point, and a Busse Combat CABS.

The Bahco Hunting and Survival knife. Issued to artillery troops in the seventies.

Sports a truly ambidextruous desig  on both sheath and handle. You can even flip the retentionstrap. Also has a stone glued to the back. They often broke but stayed on despite that.

Flow through design sheath and boot clip adjusted for use w. LBE and military boots. I can't bring myself to use it but I have handled users of the kind and just about love them. No frills, ffg with a shallow convex, full tang, light weight and high speed from the past.

I really like my Ka-Bar Beckers - plan to add a few more to the "family."

The BK-2 is my current favorite (see my avatar).

First I don't think Chris Reeve counts as production.
Secound, very fine collection. I have always wanted a project 1
I like the small clip point on the right.

I'd consider Chris Reeve knives as production knives.  It ain't like he custom makes each one.  He has employees that make the knives.  Favorite production knives for me is Bark River.

You bring up a good question. Where do we draw the line? Customs, handmade, benchmade, production, semi-production.
Chris Reeves also uses a lot of CNC I believe. I do think he oversees all of it IMO that is a little more semi-custom.

Would sure like to learn more about the sapien. I've looked at it a time or three... But then, I haven't had a lot of luck with Condor's stuff, personally. :shrug:

K,
The Sapien has the same profile as a Mora.  Condor's QC problems have been largely solved and their knives now are pretty good out of the box.  I wanted to make a necker out of it, so I had a sheath made by Badger Claw Leatherworks in San Antonio. I'm not hard on my knives but, if I lose it or break it, they're cheap enough that I won't cry about it.

Thanks! Appreciate it. :)

I've heard about condor ramping up their game a bit, and I do have more confidence that I'd get a usable knife. It is on the radar, for that time when the mad money might not stretch to the cost of a more expensive knife. However, here in canukistan, they're far more expensive to get.

OK.  This would be a 2 part answer.  Favorite meaning which one do I use the most.  And favorite meaning which one is the coolest one I have: the one I handle, think about and heft (but in this case is so nice, I have yet to really abuse).
 
Favorite knife for everyday use-
I use a Mora 510 and 511 more than any other knife in the woods.  They are cheap, good, and easily sharpened. 
  (next in line would be the Condor Kephart which I am using more and more)

Favorite knife (coolest and brings me a smile everytime I look at it-
  Chris Reeve Green Beret.  It is 7? bladed monster in S35VN with micarta scales.
 
  But ask me in 6 months and it might change(http://)

Yup. I think that's called the 46. Should be the flat ground version of yours? Guard has to go, for sure. I did a bunch of mods on this knife, and while I haven't used it a ton, it's more than ready and looks more than capable. I bought it for the winter, so I left it black.

I think I ran a thread last year around Christmas time on all the mods I did. I shortened that blasted sheath, for sure! Wow, that aggravated me! :)

I looked for your thread when I ordered mine but didn't find it. Took my 49 out today but I was looking for deer so it didn't see much use. Mine was very dull when I got it. I convexed the edge now it's good to go. Other then removing the top guard for now that's all I have done. I think I will thin the edge close to the handle so I can carve with it better.it's still a little thick.

Trading em and slling them to get to my Grail Knife
Ummm lets see if I can remember em all.....
Becker BK2
Esee 4,5 and 6
Condor Bushlore
TOPS B.O.B
Benchmade Bushcrafter 162

Traded and sold my way to my Holy Grail

Busse Swamprat Ratmandu INFI (INFIdu) with Azwelke Pancake Sheath
For a backup
Busse SwampRat Rodent 4 also with Azwelke Pancake Sheath

So out of all those I hafta say the Ratmandu is my fav of them all.
Swamprat Rodent 4 is #2

But of the others I mentioned....the ones I liked best....
TOPS B.O.B and the Benchmade 162 felt best in hand and were well made!!

Handle fit the hand nicely....only thing was it was a lil heavy for it's size.

Nice looking knives Graghyfotoz, I like them all.   One I always carry is a cheap Mora black and green, the carbon steel around home in PA, the stainless version in Virginia so I don?t have to worry about corrosion, I do have other knives but those two are the ones I carry most of the times.   Loose them or brake them, cheap to replace.

Hultafors craftsman. Was a fraction of the price of my kellam puukko and the blade is 10x better. Great knife for the price and a little beefier than a Mora. It does 90% of all my woods work now including game. Has a nice patina on it now.

I got my oldest the safety version with a blunt tip and he has batoned so much wood with it. Tough little blades for the money.

Used my Glock knife for everything for more than a decade before I got this little gem so it gets an honorable mention lol.

Slim and light but solid full-tang knife that I use both as  an EDC -  and as a handy camp knife for when I sit or squat preparing a fire,  or say cook a meal,  where the sheath-knife at my hip can be hard to reach at times.

Just finished grinding the ramp off my Bravo 1.25/3V and found a sheath I made a while ago that fits it like a glove. I plan to do some extensive working and testing with this as soon as the weather gets a little better. So far I'm loving this knife, and it looks like it's neck-to neck with my favorite knife the last three years- the Benchmade Bushcrafter.

So far , the Benchmade has exceeded all my expectations and the only thing I've had to adjust myself too is the longer sharpening sessions for S30V. But you certainly don't have to do it very often , and there had been no edge issues with it. I have used it to do a lot of hard work and batonning and it just keeps going without a hitch.  I think 3V will be an outstanding performer also , although I probably have to bring a strop with me for touch-ups.

The handle got a little sanding to un-gloss it, the spine  also after I ground the ramp off ( there's a little unintentional "dip" of about 1 mm right where my thumb goes , but I like it!) and the handle fits my size 8 hand like a dream. Liking the orange g10 , especially if I drop a $300 blade in the bush .

I'm starting to wonder what is wrong with me ... I've been using a cheap Condor Rodan for the last four or five years cuz it was cheap and I couldn't break it not that I love it or anything like that.

It's not all that great at choping, horrible at feathersticks, so-so at sparking and needs touched up all the time but I can beat the liven daylights out of it and it just laughs at me.
I've pounded it into a tree stump and stood on it and never thought twice about it.  Probably because I usually carry a axe, saw and mora with me in the pack if it's a real outing.

Now I'm going to have the think about buying something new, Fallkniven is about the only thing I've thought about a few times.
I love looking at the vendor forum knives I just don't pull the trigger.

Now I'm going to have the think about buying something new, Fallkniven is about the only thing I've thought about a few times.
I love looking at the vendor forum knives I just don't pull the trigger.

I have the F1, S1, and A1 , and the one I find the most versatile is the S1. They are all outstanding knives , but I had to give them all a try.  Customs are nice, but I like knives that I can replace easily , so I usually go the factory route.  The S1 was my main carry for a couple of years before my Benchmade 162 came along.

You fellas in the States have much better choice and access to custom knives than us in Canada , so if you find something you like , I say go for it ! I bet you could get something really nice for the $200+/- mark. If it was me , I'd get a kephart pattern with micarta scales , but that's just me. :)
Title: Re: What is your favorite production Knife?
Post by: brad.clarkston on January 24, 2016, 08:31:17 PM

Thanks I was thinking about the S1.  The F1 is just to small in blade length for me if I'm going to spend real money on it.

It's funny when we go to the gatherings or other outings everyone wants to compare knives, I'm the only one that goes bleh, ;)
I tend to spend most of my money on clothes and non-blade equipment. 
Don't even ask how much my custom 10x10 oilcloth tarp cost me, you can't see daylight through it (6.5 pounds per inch).

Well, after nearly 10 years of beta-testing I think it's safe to say that "the finnish army knife" Sissipuukko m95 is my go-to blade, even tho I've tried to move to traditional mora-like knives several times I somehow feel handicapped if I don't have the rugged sissy with me to torture.

Funny thing is it's not a perfect blade for actually anything (except for maybe stabbing somebody, which I personally haven't tested).
-Feathersticks won't get as fine
-Processing game and fish is hard with a long (15cm/~5.9'') and thick (5mm/0.2'') blade
-It's too lightweight for a chopper (still a decent one)
-Sharpening would be easier if the blade was a scandi IMO
-And the back isn't a sharp 90 degree angle, it's somewhat rounded... something a file quickly fixed tho

Despite it's shortcomings as a proper bush blade, damn is it a rugged all-around tool, I don't know what the magic is behind 80CrV2 steel or the tempering but:
-digging & prying huge rocks from the ground
-cutting metal wire
-cutting that metal belt some wooden crates or cargo is tied together with
-cutting & chopping through bones of small game
-opening cans
-prying a jammed cartridge from a rifle (a stainless marttiini skinner chipped)
-scraping ferrorods with the edge
...still no dents or hacks in the edge...
Sure it dulls pretty much instantly when misused but sharpening takes seconds.
Other than that the long blade is handy when batoning and the grip is excellent.

Yeah, I don't carry many tools on me ;D

Baz,

What are your thoughts on the M07? Seems much the same only shorter from way over here.. I think your ability to admit to and stick with the various compromises you outlined is commendable.

For me the various tasks you listed would take at least two, if we wanted to say knives only.

The m07 is identical to the m95, just with a shorter blade -it's indestructible.
Still a bit thick for slicing fish and not the best carver but definitely a great all-around tool you can't go wrong with.
If I lose my m95 i'm most likely gonna get the m07 as a replacement, mainly because the steel in other knives Iv'e used is nothing like in the sissys.

I do carry a swiss army knife if I need to do clockwork-precise tasks tho ;)

Interesting question. For my EDC its definitely my Garret Wade pocket knife.

My favorite carry knife in the woods and such would be a Marbles. I'm not sure of the exact model or what have you. It was a gift from my father many years ago.

There are a lot of knives that I prefer aesthetically, or have more features that I like, but most probably the one that ends up on my belt day after day is my favorite, in the strictest sense, the one that I most often show favor. Being able to maintain a good keen edge consistently is huge too.

That chip is going to take a long time to work out.

I sunk some tiny neodymium magnets in the grip and inside of the sheath to make up for the bit of retention lost when I removed the molded plastic belt loop for the necessary lefty modification. took a couple tries, as you can see by the ugly little hole below the one in the grip.

OK, I cant really post a picture right at the moment. But I've done some research as this thread made me curious. It is a Marbles Fieldcraft. Looking at the spacers its a 2002 I do believe. Black/brass/red/white/red/brass/black

You should still add a pic when you can. If not, well that's okay too.

Awhile back I got a used Bark river Trail Buddy, that's the one with the Fieldcraft shaped blade.  :shrug: I always liked the blade shape and there it was
   Yeah, wish I would have got a used Marbles instead.

Thought I'd bump this thread with my favorite - sad to see all these broken pic links.

Recently replaced a lost Becker BK16 with a new one. Knife came with a set of black scales and a set of tan. I used the tan and added green G10 liners. It's an out-of-the-box hair popper.

Also made a leather sheath for it

MOLLE/PALS compatible straps and snaps on the back, lashing eyelets, etc. for multiple carry options. Sheath is a work in progress - I haven't field tested it yet.
