For a daily carry knife-Kershaw Blur
It has several blade options, and one is very close to a drop point.

I can’t give a direct answer to that question until I narrow it down a bit.

Folding, gentleman knife… Case

Folding, tactical knife… Kershaw or Cold Steal

Fixed, I am the weird one who likes military knives…

I'm a construction electrician so may be on the fringe, as I actually carry a knife for daily use as a tool.  My blade gets as much use as any screwdriver in my tool pouch, for cutting heavy rope, skinning insulation from large cables... lots of heavy duty jobs.

"Old School" journeymen preferred stout folders like the Case or Schrade Old Timer; then lock-backs like the Buck 110/120 became popular.  They're all proven performers, but I wanted a more burly lock mechanism and settled on Benchmades with "Axis" lock.  This design makes the Open/Close process a 1-hand, ambi move; adding the "assisted opening" feature makes the  knife nearly perfect for my needs.

For heavy duty work, I prefer a small fixed blade.  I haven't settled on a fav; I rotate thru a few - a (budget) Buck Omni, ESEE "Izula," Bark River Mini Canadian and - on the hi-priced end - a Busse Game Warden.  These out-perform the folders, but in many urban settings folks get nervous when they see a sheathed knife.

So my setup comes down to this...
• EDC -- Benchmade "Barrage 586"
• Sunday-Go-To-Meetin' or casual settings -- Benchmade "Emissary 470"  (only 2.2 oz!) 
• Work -- Barrage 587 "Warn" (Tanto blade)
• HD Work -- TBA.
• Multi-tool -- Leatherman "Wave"
• Bug-Out Bags (Get Home, G.O.O.D., SHTF, etc) -- 1 Mora + 1 multi + 1 large fixed like an ESEE 5, Becker BK2, KaBar, etc.

Thanks for listening.

Every day for work or play- Benchmade Black Mini Barrage assist blade , dual purpose blade.

In my work truck- I have several Spyderco serrated blade knives for working around nylon rope and slings.

Hunting- Custom made knives from my friends-- drop point short blade knives with micarta handles.

A few weeks ago I traded into a Kershaw Splinter and it's taken the place of my Mirage as an EDC. It sits in the hand nicely, small enough to carry easily but large enough to handle most task. I like the blade profile and I'm actually a fan of AUS8.And the lock up is extremely stout. The only thing I would like is a cosmetic change. Mine has some funky red/purple synthetic scales. Some exotic wood would realy set this piece apart.

Benchmade, Gerber, and Kershaw. Being a native Oregonian, it only fits to carry "home grown" products!

Benchmade Stryker for everyday carry typically; however, currently carrying my mini AFCK. Prefer dual edge serrated/plain for my knives.

Kershaw blade trader is great for hunting, as is the Gerber utility exchange blade knive.

So many knives, so little time to use/carry!

I rotate a few different everyday carry (EDC) knives, and they are the Benchmade Axis Flipper, Zero Tolerance 801, and a Boker Tree Brand lock-back. While I own many, my EDC preference is the Benchmade with axis locks (especially their axis flipper). Their Nakamura model is also nice! I find frame locks too cumbersome to close efficiently but still better than a liner lock. The only frame lock I would recommend are the ones made of titanium (like the ZT 801). If I had to choose one knife for all time, it would be a toss-up between the Benchmade Axis Flipper (tan-color G10 grips) or the Zero Tolerance 801. I'd sell all my lock-backs and half my fixed blades before I parted with these two.

The Ka-Bar Warthog (old full tang model) has become my favorite skinning/field dressing knife. Easy to sharpen and holds an edge for a long time. I usually have a Ka-Bar BK2 Companion along also. Very strong well made knife that I'm glad Ka-Bar picked up the rights to. It will do almost anything I will ever need a knife to do.

I have a couple of Case knives I carry daily. Have for 15 years.


In the kitchen, I have Old Hickory knifes, but half of those were my grand parents or great grand parents.

I hate messing up or loosing a nice knife, so my everyday carry is a Stanly folding box cutter I bought at Walmart for $8, if the blade ever goes down I just drop another one in.
