    Spyderco endura 4 with the full serrations. Small but heavy and feels good in my hand. I find the 'spyder' edge to be incredibly useful for anything other than fine cutting. For quickly ripping materials, it's great. For meat, way better than any conventional edge that isn't razor keen.

    The CRTK Horus by Elishawitz is, for some reason, my favorite EDC.



    Maybe it's the outburst firing mechanism, or the heft, or the feel of the handle, but this is a solid blade. Otherwise the Cold Steel TiLite - 4" or 6"


    This one also has a good feel. Both knives have good brandishing qualities: you snap 'em out, they make a statement. Of course, we all know the First Rule of Weapons - you bring it out, you'd better be prepared to use it.

    But that doesn't mean you have to use it. Only that you must be ready to go to town. It's better for everybody involved if hands go up, apologies are made, and nobody gets hurt. So I like my knives to be like my guns, in that there's no mistake about the situation. I see a benefit if there's a strong "do you really want to proceed?" component to things.

    I carry a Spyderco Dragonfly2. It's just a small 2.25" blade knife.

    If there's ever a situation in which one would need to use a knife defensively, you'd definitely be justified in using a firearm. Plus, knives are far more dangerous than guns to the user, and you really need lots of training to be effective with a knife.

    Absolutely correct knives are the weapon of last resort. They are much more intimate, brutal and personal than guns. You need to be viciously relentless and do whatever it takes 10, 20 a 100 stab slash wounds are not unheard of. You stop when they stop. Not just because your slashed their throat or stabbed them in the heart. Neither always stops an attacker. Small blades like yours are slashing weapons, you need to be open them up enough to bleed out, that is a lot of blood. Not only will you be looking them in the eye when you send them to hell you may very well breath in their last breath. Volunteering in a prison I saw hundreds of fight attacks The most effective use of a knife is a controlled berserk-er attack. DO NOT stop until they stop, it will be ugly vulgar bloody smelly nasty and foul to the extreme, almost insanity. It is all offense, you will get cut, you stop them before they stop you.

    Me too. I'm also in CO and can't carry anything larger than 3.5" or auto open. It really sucks. We can carry a firearm but not a knife that opens a Usec faster than an assited opener.

    Currently a Cold Steel Spartan on my strong-side for defense, and a SOG Trident on my weak-side for utility purposes.

    Buck

    I always been a fan of Buck knives, I carry a Buck vantage select, the one that's half serrated in my right back pocket, next to my wallet. I also carry a KA-BAR last ditch neck knife laced into my work boots. KA-BAR Is a flesh only knife for sure. But it wouldn't matter too much, because I sharpen every night with a Arkansas stone and a leather strop.
