My Five Self Defense Knives
#11
I purchased a Spyderco Delica after reading another thread on this forum. My wife liked it so much she asked me to buy her one as well. In my eyes it is the perfect carry knife, lightweight, holds a razor sharp edge, didn't break the bank so when I do stupid things like scrape the handle or clip on concrete walls I don't cry. Oh yeah, I actually use it too because it didn't break the bank. Unlike my Benchmade 375 Adamas that just sits in my get home bag unused because it's too purty.

However just seeing the pictures posted in this thread makes me want to run out and buy one of each.

Recently got my hubby an H&K Fugitive. I guess it wasn't a current model so I got it for a decent price on Amazon.

I have 2 Kershaw Scallions that I love. A purple one, and black one with a textured grip that I carry and use every day. It's the perfect size for my pocket, ladies pants pockets tend yo be shallower then men's. The assisted opening is great, and the price is right.

I really like that SOG. I think fixed blades are more my style. The problem I face is I need something I can conceal easier and not be so bulky or heavy. I may just have to pick up one of those SOGs. Any other good fixed blades I should look into?

This is easy to conceal and inexpensive:

Cold Steel Kobun

I've owned both and found no realistic way to conceal the SOG comfortably. The Cold Steel conceals easily with the sheath that comes with it. If you scroll down to customer photos you can see pics of the sheath.

You could mow a few lawns if it means that much to you!

Nah. If I mowed a few lawns, I should spend the money on something more profitable. LOL.

Got a new P/T job this summer with a small business. I knew the business would be slower and busier at certain times but I'm going on my THIRD week this month without work. Not happy. Back to Craigslist I guess.... Sigh. Signed back up to do home transcription, and they aren't sending me any work, either. Oh well! :-)

Owning a knife you have to baby because it's expensive is counter-productive all I care about is the steel, sharpness and ergonomics. The most expensive knife I own was $150, but it has a lifetime warranty so I beat the shit out of it anyway. I probably have been though 20 different configurations for EDC knives over the past 5 years and I'd say the average price of my knives is around $40. I've been known to use my S&W assist that has been riding in my pocket for years for everything from splitting shale layers and pounding it with a hammer as a chisel when I didn't have anything else available. I've used the old S&W assist for prying open a jammed car door after it slid down a hill on a muddy day into a tree. I love the look of the Strider Knives specifically, but I would just as soon buy a Chinese knockoff as opposed to buying the genuine article, because I don't want to have to think about what I'm going to do with it to keep it from getting marred. Unless I was a billionaire paying $500+ for a pocket folder is a fucking joke the only other exception would be if you want to collect it simply as a piece of artwork or an investment.At that point though you may as well have just bought a Faberge egg because if you have to baby it it will provide the same utility to you that the Faberge egg will which is nothing.
