i gotta say i really hate the design on that.

built in carabiner just screams cheap to me. and the sci-fi weight saving holes.... not for me.

 

that ken brock up there is hot, i like most of his knives, but i wish he had a better logo. i think it really distracts from the rest of the knife.

The long handle of that Leatherman looks painful to squeeze hard.

 

When having to travel light in the field multitools are excellent pieces of kit. Design is everything though.

 

I still haven't come across much that bettered my Schrade Power tool (posted a few pages back).

agreed. basic ergonomics on that piece are junk, if you actually have to squeeze on those pliers its going to be quite uncomfortable, and losing skin and a callous or two isn't an impossibility.

 

drawing your own blood while trying to open an ammo case is highly overrated.

Benchmade-556-Mini-Griptilian-MDP-Knife-01.jpg

 

 

 

 

Can't go wrong with a Griptilian. Seems to be the most popular benchmade knife, probably what i would get.

 

I dont think you can go wrong with any benchmade though

fixed or folding, cali?

 

Griptilians are great EDCs, but Benchmade makes so much cool shit its hard to recommend without knowing what you carry now, or want to carry, or what you're looking for in a knife.

What do you like your handles to be made of?

What kind of laws are you dealing with that limit what you can buy?

Blade length?

Overall weight--do you like heavy knives or prefer lighter stuff?

I was looking for a folding blade.

sturdy handles that wont get damaged with moisture.

im dealing with california laws...so blade length is limited...cant even get an automatic or gravity knife (if that was the case, i would have already bought a balisong years ago from benchmade)..but spring assisted knives are allowed...but i want a nice folding knife.

 

if i dont buy a benchmade, i might go with kershaw.

 

i like heavier studier knives for everyday use, and when i go out to the river.

that griptilian looks nice though.

i'd push you towards the benchmade barrage, onslaught, or presidio (or the mini versions of each.

 

i like griptilians, but they're not heavy enough for me, i like weight to my knives.

 

find a shop that sells them so you can handle before you buy, imo. and then shop online and save yourself a shit ton.

 

kershaw is 50/50. their locking mechanism breaks more easily than it should. i've had it go on 2 knives. but i know people who've carried the same leek or scallion for a couple years with no issue. maybe i'm hard on shit.

oh shit. i was thinking california was 3.5" not 3"

 

onslaught and presidio are both out then.

 

mini barrage is still an option, though weight is pretty similar to the griptilian. and you have more blade and color options with griptilian.

 

anything against spyderco (w/ seki blades)?
