    I carry a Chris Reeve Large Sebenza 21 Folding Knife - SOLD - Chris Reeve Knives never to be used as a weapon though. I wouldn't use it if someone walked up and punched me in the face. I only would use a pocket knife as a last ditch effort seeing as how I have no idea how to properly use weapons.

    Chris Reeve-good stuff. Have one of his original South AFrican Hollow handled survival knives and then a US Made version. I had both the 7 and 5 inch "Green Beret" knife but I gave the latter to my nephew before he was part of the counter-offensive in Iraq (Rangers) Now he's GB and he still carries that along with the automatic Masters of Defense Folder I gave him too.

    My favorite defensive folders are the spyderco enduras or the CRKT Kit Carson M16 folders with the LAWK folding lock system. I also like the MOD autos which are legal in Ohio

    The TDI knives are great because you basically punch with them and the grip on them is hard to dislodge

    I Don't carry fixed blades often since a handgun is almost as easy but I am partial to the classic Gerber MK II (held in a reverse grip) or the incomparable Randall 1 held in a fencing grip. for concealed blade carry the Gryphon boot knife in one of the sheaths designed by my old shooting buddy Mike Sastre (River City knife sheaths) is hard to beat

    you'd have to ask the NVA or the VC.. or the Cubans.. or the Panamanians... or the Iraqis... or the Somali's.
    4 Combat Action ribbons, 1 bronze star with V,and 2 enemy marksmanship badges ( purple hearts)

    the instructors at Gunsite might tell you a thing or 2 about me as well., i'm an alumni of the pistol, carbine, rifle, and edged weapons courses
    Marine rifle team 1984,85, and 86..Senior Range SNCO, Edson range, Camp Pendleton, Ca in those same years.
    awarded 22 Rifle expert badges, 19 pistol expert badges.

    I'm pretty sure I kinda know my way around a gun or 2...but i know some rednecks that have never done anything but shoot deer and beer cans that can shoot circles around me.

    I spend top dollar on fixed blades-hence I have a drawer full of Randalls and the expensive (though 200 bucks rather than 500) copies of them like the excellent Cold Steel Military Classic and Bark River Model Ones but I don't spend much more than 75 bucks on a folder I carry because I have lost a couple including a really nice Spyderco Delica wit ZDP powdered steel when it got got on a folding seat at an athletic arena and we were in a hurry to beat the crowds. So other than a few top of the line automatics (which I never carry) I don't spend big bucks for folders which tend to be my working knives

    I'm an outdoors kinda guy though so I really need to carry a folding knife. Gotta think of them as sunglasses and always clip them to the inside of your pocket when finished with your chore and you will never lose them.

    actually I do and I have.

    but being sort of an expert on knives machine made folders tend to work as well as hand made ones.

    but that CR you have is nice.

    I think we sort of stole this thread turtle, then again, the guys at CR deserve a thread steal here and there. They produce excellent knives.
