Before that my all time favourite pocket knife was a very odd little black handled thing, folding like the opinel, quite old, apparently made in some obscure eastern European country that I never quite figured out- got it in a opportunity shop for a few bucks. Now I have a wee Buck folding knife in my pocket, but the blade is much narrower and weaker in the hinge.
Covite12-17-2009, 02:05 PMI carry a Victorinox Swiss Army knife Classic for a basic pocket knife around town. While sailing I carry a folding sailors knife that has a sharp locking blade and marlinspike. I have had a fixed blade Opinel==a cheap little knife with a black wooden handle--kicking around in a tool box for at least 20 years.
Used to be a Swiss Army Knife on display in the basement of the Hotel Vancouver that had something like 365 purposeses. Had to stop lending my Opinel out when asked 'for a sharp knife' -- too many folks cut themselves.

When walking in the bush or working in the garden I usually also carry a slim fixed blade knife (about 4" blade) ground and re-tempered from an old file of my Dad's. Bob Cleek12-18-2009, 02:38 PMI've always got a collection of pocket knives, sheathers, and multi-tools going. Unfortunately, I've found I can't practically carry a pocket knife in this part of the world anymore. I used to get a little pang in my heart every time I saw him with the knife, and I never got around to getting myself another one. Now if none of you have ever had one of these types of pocket knifes you are missing a bit o pure joy.

My experience with pocket knives is how badly you need it is inversely proportional to the availability of both hands.
Tens of thousands have been issued to aircraft and parachute riggers, loadmasters, military mountaineers and parachutists since the 1950's, when it replaced the smaller WWII paratrooper's automatic knife similar to the Hubertus Leverlock below it.. The crazy thing is that you can carry a knife or even a machete down the street as long as its not concealed.

Clips to pocket or belt, locks open, costs about 12 bucks if you loose it, and talk about easy to keep sharp! The Leatherman Wave at the top and the stainless pocket knife just below left go with me, the Wave most everywhere and the pocket knife everywhere except on airplanes.
John P Lebens03-14-2010, 12:14 AMI have never carried a knife and have never felt the need - there must be something wrong with me. I was young in the days when all of us from Cub Scout age up were expected to carry a well maintained pocket knife - the usual three or four tools and since we were but boys, no corkscrews - everywhere, including to school, where our shop teacher made sure we knew how to keep the cutting blades sharp.
It's remarkable how if you have a knife aboard - mine hangs from my belt in my right read pocket while Dad preferrs a chain so it can lay in the bottom of his right front pocket - you will find an essential use for it at least once a day. That's for the multi-tool small pocket knife that goes about it's business cutting strings, pulling corks, opening cans and bottles, extracting splinters, unscrewing the cover to replace a radio's batteries, and generally providing a MacIver backup for life's adventures. This, the single blade folder, not yet a switch blade or even a flic knife but surely a fast open with one hand, is the sort growing ever more popular to carry and ever more unnerving to law enforcement and rescue personnel. Like you, knife things started in the Cub Scouts, then went on to carving a model dugout canoe. Ben Fuller03-14-2010, 03:15 PMWhat I would like to find is a good quality multi-tool without a knife blade so that I can carry it when ever and where ever I please. Among fixed knives, various butcher's knives also make weapons, and the Bowie knife pattern can be used to skin game, but the former are tools first while the latter are weapons first. For my Norwegian knife which is most certainly carbon steel, I keep the sheath and blade just a little greasy. After skinning fish I caught a bit north of Broome WA, my Swiss army knife rusted like crazy.

Breakaway03-16-2010, 10:36 PMThat company, and others, make carbon-bladed knives I believe. After using several types of stainless steels for knife blade and testing them on rope, the very best is a relative new one made here in the USA by the CRUCIBLE Co. I would buy this knife as long as the obvious attributes are up to it, on account of the single simple curve that makes sharpening simple and no freaky unnecessary pattern on back edge.
The knife I carry looks like this but has a clip about the size of half the knifes length, so I can hang it in am easy to reach spot.

RE stainless, again, as I mentioned in post #124 I am really impressed with the cobalt stuff David Boye uses in his boat knives. A Schrade 152, a great little knife for the money, wish they still made them here, and out of carbon steel like mine. Jay Greer03-24-2010, 11:57 AMAlthough I have a hell of a lot of knives, my favorite sailing knife is a folding Buck Boat Knife with a locking spike on a leather lanyard. Been smithing for something like four years now and that is the fourth knife I have started and completed. Ya see a couple of years ago I left my Kershaw- Ken Onion designed pocket knife at his place after some festivities. More and more people have a knife that incidentally finds some routine cutting use and may have an emergency rational but it's real design and prime function is as a weapon. A Mora Swedish sheath knife , 85mm long blade .A lovely bit of steel as I said earlier ,holds a very good edge and I like the little guard ,especially when my handsare greasy . The last time I flew airport security took a copper nail off me !:rolleyes: A knife of any variety is inconceivable !
Its also amazingly good boat knife since only one hand is ever required for surgical precision. So I went back to the knife shop and they said that it seems to be the call of the individual policeman.
And the fixed blade is a small Norwegian knife, copy of a grave burial knife bought at the Roskilde Museum. In dirty-work clothes I carry one of those pliers with a knife, file, and a couple of screwdrivers built into the handle, $5.
I said hey buddy thats my knife, he says - I know but I like it too much to give it back :D.
A large and small pen knife if you've got the urge to whittle, or carve your love's name in a tree. I don't consider my knives museum pieces, they are all working tools of one sort or the other, but I maintain them.
