      i'm getting used to carrying tip up, and i now feel like where was I before without tipup carry.

      Anyways, I love the Benchmade 943 SBK. s30v steel. aluminum handles. Work with a Benchmade distributor so I got a really good price on it, otherwise I don't think I could have paid so much for a knife

      what have I done?
      06-10-2010 11:27 AM #52
      Does anyone know of a folder that has a built in bottle opener in the handle? I know Gerber, Leatherman and a few others have quasi multi tool/knives that have a fold out opener. I might end up with one of those if I can't find what I'm picturing.

      What I'm looking for is something like this:
      http://www.amazon.com/Columbia-River.../dp/B001AQI3JS

      Ideally with a 3 in blade instead of 2, and a folder. I like the fact the opener is part of the handle, and not a fold out accessory. If you don't know of any, any experience with either the leathermans or gerbers that have openers?

      Skip that search and just get a belt buckle opener. Then u never need to fish anything out of your pocket, and it's totally hot with the wimins.

      ever see anybody open a beer with a lighter? same principle is how I open beers with my knife. works fine, doesn't damage anything.

      I'd say look for the knife you want then find it for the price you want to pay. I got my SOG Aegis Tanto Assisted (MSRP 110) for about 55 bucks. My SOG Vulcan Tanto (VG-10 steel MSRP 180) for 75.

      I have this thing now and its a great utility/warehouse hacker knife. It's bigger than you want and unassisted but it works for me and scores high on the BMF look.


      Not bad for $45
      I've got the big dog version with the full belly of this knife. I bought the small one first and decided, since I don't use a knife for work and won't be carrying it around all the time, to sell the small one to my buddy and buy the bigger one for 10 bucks more. Thankfully, the knives are so badass that my buddy jumped on it in a heartbeat. They really are top notch.

      The big one with the full fat blade (not the tanto) might as well be assisted opening. You tap your index finger on the hilt and the blade swings open and locks in a hurry.

      Great knife, though the metal of the serrations is very thin and prone to bending over slightly. Though, even then, the serrations are still ridiculously sharp.

      convert the pocket clip to carry the blade tip up in your pocket with the back of the blade into the rear of your pocket. As you pull the knife out of your pocket in a normal draw one of the "arms"(i dont know what to call it exactly) will hook on the inside of your pocket, as you keep pulling, it will open the knife ready to rock. it is, for me, very fast. now that i look at it, it'll do what the knives with the wave does.

      I just got a M16-EDC Tanto a few weeks back as a new carry knife, my SOG is too large to be legally carried on campus. Paid 20$ for it on Amazon, it came in with my books

      Great little knife, the flipper on it is awesome. I just wish it had the full hilt so I could have it hook on my pocket like the wave. Very sharp out of the box.

      Just picked this up recently. Razor sharp out of the box, spring assisted solid construction, and very purpose built. And for around $40, not a bad deal. I'm very satisfied.

      Don't know if I ever posted this - but I've been lovin' my Benchmade HK ...even if they shipped me a non-tanto when I ordered a tanto...I liked it too much to send it back.

      When did Benchmade hook up with H&K? I thought Böker made their knives?

      RIP: SOG Aegis Tanto.

      F-----g Cabs. The driver didn't have change and I had to search my pockets and knocked it out of my jeans. I wonder who has it now?

      They did at some point. Not sure when they switched to Benchmade.

      My EDC is the HK. I am thinking of retiring it for something new soon.

      I am still carrying that Kershaw from the first page of this thread. In my pocket right now, actually. I have thought about getting a Scallion, but I'd want the damascus one, and that's just too expensive.

      I do need to take it apart and clean the bearings soon, as well as maybe touching up the edge a tiny bit.
