This is a discussion on I need a knife within the Defensive Knives & Other Weapons forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Kershaw/Onions or Spydercos for me....
I agree, Benchmade , more costly but worth it.
With being in L/E - I carry a Benchmade Auto Stryker
Kershaw and Columbia River are fine knives.
